Irish Online Casino Slots for St. Patrick's Day

Published on: March 3, 2010 

St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17. Saint Patrick is an Irish saint, but the celebrations are more than religious festivity and go well beyond the boundaries of Ireland. Much of the Western world celebrates Irish culture on St. Patrick’s Day with parades and carnivals. Saint Patrick explained the Christian Trinity with the help of the three leaf clover. Sometimes a clover leaf is found having four leaves. This is considered extremely lucky and has become a part of Irish culture. The other aspect of Irish culture that is celebrated on St. Patrick’s Day is the folklore of leprechauns hiding pots of gold at the end of the rainbow. Where there are luck and wealth slots players will follow. Almost all major online gaming software providers have slot games with Irish themes. This article discusses a few of the more popular of such games.

The Irish themed slot game from Cryptologic is Emerald Isle, which is what Ireland is known as. The Leprechaun is the wild symbol and the Rainbow is the scatter symbol. The slot has some nifty animations that have the Leprechaun working his magic and the Rainbow being lit up with a golden glow. Leprechauns are lucky in this game because five of them in an enabled payline pay out 6000 coins. The other thematic symbols include the Pot of Gold and the Four Leaf Clover. In the bonus game on the second screen six thematic symbols are concealed. The player reveals the symbols by clicking on them and if three symbols match the player wins bonus credits.

Microgaming’s Irish themed slot game is Rainbow’s End. In this slot game the Pot of Gold is the wild symbol and the Leprechaun is the scatter symbol. The highest fixed jackpot of 5000 coins is paid when five Rainbow symbols align in an enabled payline. The other Irish symbols are the Four Leaf Clover and the Horseshoe, which are symbols of luck, and Toadstools that abound in Ireland. The highlights of the slot game are the Pot of Gold symbol that showers gold coins on all rows when it appears on reels 2 or 4 and the Leprechaun who starts smoking his pipe when in winning combinations.

Luck o’ the Irish is a 3 reel classic slot game from Vegas Technology. The symbols on the reels are Leprechaun, Four Leaf Clover, Pot of Gold and Beer Mug to add to the celebrations. Three Pot of Gold symbols on the single payline offer the highest payout of 2400 coins if 3 coins are wagered. The Pot of Gold is the wild symbol and doubles payouts if one symbol appears on the reels and quadruples payouts if two symbols appear on the reels. The bonus game on the second screen reveals a group of leprechauns. Players need to pick one to reveal their bonus prize. If they do not like the payout they can pick again up to two times.

The WagerWorks Irish themed slot game is Rainbow Riches. It features Irish symbols like the Leprechaun Hat, Gold Coin and Rainbow Riches Logo. Five Rainbow Riches Logo symbols in any enable payline have a payout of 25,000 coins. Rainbow Riches is a bonus feature rich slot. Three Leprechaun Hat symbols trigger the Pick Me bonus round. The player picks one of the hats to win 10x or 20x their bet or an entry to the Pots of Luck bonus round. In the Pots of Luck bonus round a leprechaun dances a jig as gold, silver and bronze pots spin around. The player wins one of the pots, whose value can go up to 25,000 coins.
