Celebrate the Day in Style
Paddy’s Pub is essentially a faithful 3D rendition of a typical Irish pub. The reels are placed within the tall windows of the establishment, decorated in green and gold. The level of details is actually quite impressive, with smooth 3D animations to make sure that each spin of the reels is as exciting for players as it should be.
Add some typical Irish music to the mix and there you have Paddy’s Pub. Overall, the game relies heavily on known clichés about Irish culture, which might not be every player’s cup of tea. That being said, we have to admit that Paddy’s Pub looks really good, objectively speaking. Good enough to make us want to look at the gameplay in more details next.
Green, White and Orange
Paddy’s Pub is actually based on a small layout: 3 reels and 5 fixed paylines in total. In spite of this, the volatility of the game remains quite low and you have all your chances to score small prizes very often in Paddy’s Pub. Simply use the arrows to bet from 0.05 to 100 credits per turn and you are ready to go. The game includes the usual autoplay and turbo modes as well.
As you might have guessed, the paytable of Paddy’s Pub is full of very typical symbols for this particular slot game family. Violins, leprechauns, tap dancing folks and so on, with a top prize of x40 for the luckiest players. As mentioned before, Paddy’s Pub is clearly not as generous as other games on the current market. But the bonus features might help with that a little bit.
Shuffle the Symbols Once Again
To celebrate Saint Patrick’s day properly and win as many credits as possible in Paddy’s Pub, you need to pay attention to 3 special symbols on the reels. The pints of ale, for starters, are scatters. Finding 3 of them on the reels at the same time is worth 25 times your current wager, and awards 10 free spins as well. The shamrocks, on the other hand, are wild and can replace the basic icons at will during the game. Three of them on a payline also award an extra x100 cash prize.
Last but not least, the pot of gold is a very special symbol in Paddy’s Pub. Besides awarding a small cash prize, each pot of gold has the power to rotate the entire reel set 90 degrees clockwise. The symbols will rearrange themselves automatically, potentially awarding more cash prizes as they do so.
Part of a Very Large Family
Paddy’s Pub shares many common features with Reel Circus from Spinomenal. Apart from having 15 paylines available, Reel Circus features a very similar free spin bonus, for instance. That being said, the rotating bonus is a very rare feature that still puts Paddy’s Pub in a special position on the slot game market. As for Irish-inspired slot games, the list goes on and all. Most of them share very similar graphic features and similar paytables as well. If you are looking for the most representative title possible, check out Irish Luck by Playtech. The cartoonish atmosphere coupled with a generous free spin bonus really did the trick for us.
Plenty of Exciting Features to Enjoy
Paddy’s Pub might not be based on the most original theme for a slot game, we still think that the Booming Games developers did a great job in terms of gameplay. Despite its small reel set, the game stays dynamic from start to finish and we had a really good time trying to trigger all the special features that the game has to offer.
The only thing we were a little disappointed about was the size of the cash rewards. Despite having a very comfortable betting range, Paddy’s Pub doesn’t allow for any single win greater than x100. We thought that going beyond this limit would have made the game even more exciting, and attracted a few high rollers to the reels as well.
