How to play Golden ShamrockClick here for a print friendly version
The luck of the Irish is an idea that’s been used time and again, especially in the world of slots and casinos to the point of becoming cliché. This is, perhaps, a sign that its popularity lives on because, well, who doesn’t want a little bit of luck when spinning the reels? This is why NetEnt has borrowed this theme with a fine stock of imagery associated with Irish luck and lore in their 5-reel game with 20 pay lines, Golden Shamrock. All that shines is gold in this game with expanding Wilds, Scatters, and free spins with multipliers.
This game, abounding in green Irish pastures and winding tree ramblers, features symbols including pots of gold, golden horseshoes, golden lyres, Leprechaun top hats, smoke pipes with pink flowers, beer jugs, accordions, and bags of gold marked with A, K, and Q. The Wild is the Leprechaun himself and the Scatter is the golden-leaf clover.
Golden Shamrock packs 5 reels by 3 rows. It pays out along 20 adjustable bet lines. Its RTP rests at 96.4% and the game is a medium variance type.
Apart from the bet lines that can be de/activated to suit your play style and bank roll, other configurable bet settings include the bet level and the coin value. The bet level varies between 1 and 10, which multiplies your total wager per spin depending on your level. The coin value, on the other hand, allows you to attach a minimum value of €0.01 and a maximum value of €0.50. The highest bet per spin will cost you a total of 200 coins that’s the equivalent of €100.00.
On the other hand, the highest paying symbol is the pot of gold, 5 of which give you 4,000x your bet. However, the highest pay-out you can expect is 200,000 coins.
There isn’t a wealth in terms of special features in Golden Shamrock. However, what’s there covers enough basic ground and is designed to up the fun and provide great winning potential. Laying bare all special features, we have expanding Wilds, Scatters, and Free Spins with multipliers.
Wilds substitute for all other symbols except for Scatters. Whenever they appear on any of reels 2, 3, and 4, they expand to cover the entire reel.
A minimum of 3 Scatters activates free spins. These can be reactivated again by landing another 2 Scatters during free spins mode. Also, a multiplier which ranges between x1 and x5 is applied during this mode.
Golden Shamrock offers players a good deal of symbology and intriguing lore associated with the Irish luck and Leprechauns. While it feels simplistic in terms of animations and production values, it sports a pretty design. The special features seem basic at first glance, but they pack a few quirks of their own to make the game more lucrative. So, go ahead and give Golden Shamrock a few spins and then get some of that Irish luck by playing for real money only at Quasar Gaming!
