Amongst the huge range of casino styled games, video slots and slot machines that you can find online, there is an amazing array of themes.
However, despite themes stretching far and wide as the sea and outer space, certain concepts prove to be so popular that developers love to work with them and push the boundaries of them, over and over again. Once such theme or concept is that of the Luck o’ the Irish.
There are dozens of Irish themed slot games out there and this one, Irish Eyes, still manages to stand out as a strong slot game amongst all the leprechauns, pots of gold, rainbows and more.
A 5 reel, 25 pay line slot, the game includes bonuses in the form of a scatter symbol and a potentially huge jackpot.
Irish Eyes was developed by the collective minds at NextGen Gaming.
This is a developer very well known and highly regarded in the online slot game industry, thanks to having their own huge selection of games and titles that have consistently high level of quality in regards to graphics, animation and gameplay.
One strength go NextGen is their ability to always make their titles fully functional across all the major platforms, meaning that no matter how you play your online slot games, NextGen have catered to you.
Fully optimised across tablet, smartphone devices and desktop, this slot game is typical of it’s developer.
As we already mentioned, Irish Eyes uses the very popular Irish theme.
Something about that mythological luck of the Irish seems to bring people back to luscious slots with rolling hills, rainbows and leprechauns every single time. The symbols, of course, all tie in with this theme as you will find all of the above either on the reels of indeed behind them, as a sunny, hillside setting provides the backdrop.
The game takes it name from the Irish dame on the screen whose eyes seem to captivate and grab the attention every time she pops up on the reels. It is the leprechaun that is more useful though, acting as a wild feature in this game.
The little creature is elusive but integral, as landing 5 of them will score you the ultimate jackpot of 10,000 coins.
This game has bonus features but as far as the modern online slot game goes, the features are quite basic – especially for NextGen who are known for some elaborate and ambitious mini games.
One such feature in the aforementioned Lucky Leprechaun who, as a wild symbol, can be substituted for any other apart from the wild in order to create a winning combination. Elsewhere, that scatter is part of the Irish Beauty Scatter bonus, which comes into play should you land three of the well-eyed Irish lady on the reels.
This game has the gameplay and theme to create a classic slot game, resulting in a somewhat retro feel as you spin.
Features are limited but this does not have to be a bad thing, as it makes for an easy to play game where the focus is on that jackpot.
