Irish Eyes 2 slot review
The sequel to - you guessed it - Irish Eyes, the Celtic-themed slot from the creative brains at NextGen Gaming, Irish Eyes 2 is out now on mobiles and tablets, and the transition from online has been pretty seamless. It works well on Android or Apple devices, looks great, and generally has had everything turned up to 11 in comparison to its predecessor.
On the Reels...
A 5 reel, 25 payline mobile slot, Irish Eyes 2 has the same coin bets as Irish Eyes that range from $0.01 to $2.00 but a lower maximum jackpot in the base game - 10,000 coins for hitting five Wilds. That Wild is the flame-haired beauty, who substitutes for all regular symbols in the game other than the Scatters.
The Emerald Isle lovely jostles for space on reels that contain all manner of Irish-themed icons: a four-leaf clover, a pipe, a gold bracelet, a green hat, Celtic-styled 9-through-Ace symbols and a pot of gold. Yes, hard to believe, I know, but a pot of gold is appearing in a mobile slot about Ireland!
No Leprechaun?! That's Grand!
There's no Leprechaun in the game (good news for anyone who's tired of seeing a begorrah-ing little fella dancing all over the reels whenever a winning combo hits) but the pot of gold is the triggering Scatter.
Win 20 Free Spins with a 3x Multiplier
Three or more gold pots on the reels activates a free spins bonus round with - depending on how many Scatters you landed to activate the bonus feature - 10, 15 or 20 spins up for grabs. On top of the spins, a 3x multiplier is applied to all wins, and free spins can be re-triggered.
There's only one bonus round so it may be worth sticking to NextGen's original Irish Eyes game with its two bonus features and bigger jackpots. However, beating both games are Playtech's Plenty O' Riches slot with some great wins, and Leprechaun's Luck from Ash Gaming slot which can really pay big prizes if you're lucky.
