Luck O' The Irish Fortune Spins slot - Free Play - Game Review
Luck O' The Irish Fortune Spins is a new, quirky, and (potentially) more profitable way to play Luck O' The Irish Fortune Spins – a hugely popular video slot from Blueprint Gaming – and while the cost increases to play using the Fortune Spin mechanism, the RTP (return to player percentage) increases, making it – financially – a better decision, if you’re looking to win.
Luck O' The Irish Fortune Spins is, much like the original game, based around the Emerald Isle, and the game uses five reels, and four rows, with a whopping 40 pay-lines active!
The backdrop is scarce (much of the screen is hidden by the reels), but from the little bit we do see, there’s a green, forest-like background, with a bright blue sunshine. The reels include both higher-paying and lower-paying symbols, with the higher-paying ones being A Mushroom, a Horseshoe, a Three-Leaf-Clover, alongside a Pint of Guinness. The lower-paying symbols are depicted by traditional playing card symbols, including Ten, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace, as is the case with many of Blueprint Gaming’s video slots.
Luck O' The Irish Fortune Spins require you to stake either £20, £30, £40, or £50, for five spins. The main benefit of doing so, is that the lower-paying symbols – the traditional playing card symbols, including Ten, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace – are removed from gameplay, which makes winning big quite a lot easier!
The feature remains the same, and is a free-spins bonus-round; this is triggered when you land the Luck O' The Irish Fortune Spins Logo (the scatter symbol) on reels two, three, and four, and when you manage to do so, you’ll enter the free-spins bonus-round.
Here, you’re taken to a new reel-set, where you’ll find a stacked gold coin symbol; when this lands, it will change into a random symbol, and all gold coins transform into the same symbol, allowing for potentially HUGE wins, if you can line up 4-of-a-kind and 5-of-a-kind combination!
Remember, the game uses 40 pay-lines, so a full screen of a certain symbol – even the traditional playing card symbols, including Ten, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace (the lower-paying ones) can be pretty lucrative!
While you only get five free-spins to begin with, you can re-trigger the free-spins, simply by landing another three scatter symbols in view – this will then another five spins to your total.
Pros: Fun, exciting, and not too hard to bonus – another great slot from Blueprint Gaming.
Cons: Other than the free-spins, there’s not much going for the game, and the fortune spins cost quite a bit!
