Luck of the Irish
Nothing quite puts us in the mood for some spinning action than a lucky Irish slot machine such as Treasure Hill. After all, crossing paths with a leprechaun is considered to bring good fortune your way, so why not let the leprechaun of this video slot cross your path with every turn of the reels.
Not only does this green and magical slot machine star one of the most iconic characters in Irish folklore, but it also features some very important props for any self respecting hunter of the wealth and riches; there are four-leaf clovers, lucky horseshoes, the end of the rainbow and a big gleaming pot of gold. And keeping punters refreshed as they spin the reels is a nice big flagon of beer and a smoking pipe – it is tough work all this slot machine spinning business!
From visual perspective, this online slot ticks all of the boxes when it comes to capturing the essence of its theme. That said, there are some similar slots out there which are much more stunning when it comes to the pure quality of the artwork, such as Leprechaun Legends by Genesis Gaming and Golden Shamrock by NetEnt. If spinners would prefer to try out some Irish spins with a bit of a different twist, then they can try out Shamrockers Eire to Rock by IGT or Leprechaun Goes to Egypt by Play’n Go.
Pot o’ Gold
Luck is an important factor in any gambling game and with 50 paylines available on the reels, players of Treasure Hill will have plenty of luck on their side. The fact of the matter is that you can’t spin this online video slot for too long without finding a winning combination of symbols on the reels. Admittedly, the frequency of the win-rate is reflected in the overall size of the prizes that are available to be won in this medium volatility slot.
The wins in this game begin with a 5x line bet multiplier – awarded whenever three matching J, Q, K, or A symbols align – which is quite a small return considering that the slot can be spun with 50 paylines at any one time. After that players can hope to win some five-in-a-row rewards for various symbol combinations, ranging from 100x to the top jackpot of 1,000x. That ultimate prize is awarded for finding five wild leprechaun icons on a payline.
While it is always tempting to go full steam ahead with the maximum number of paylines, players of Treasure Hill do have the option to play with any number of paylines between 1 and 50. Perhaps the main reason why limiting the number of paylines would be to cut back the wagering since the minimum wager with all paylines in play is a fairly hefty 50 credits. The game’s top wagering limit comes in at 500 coins, which is a more than decent stake for high rollers.
This online video slot comes with a number of extra gameplay features which could turn an average spin into some very big wins. The first of these bonus elements is the wild leprechaun icon that will fill in the gaps for any ordinary symbol to create line wins on any active payline. But this isn’t any standard wild symbol, because these wilds are stacked on the reels, meaning that there is every chance for multiple line wins to be completed on any one spin.
Players can also trigger a round of 10 free games by finding three scattered symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. This icon – represented by the leprechaun’s abode – will also multiply the total bet by 5x when three appear.
Worth a Punt?
Treasure Hill is not the first Irish themed slot machines online and it certainly won’t be the last. The game is far from being at the cutting edge of e-gaming software design; it could even be described as looking a little bit out of date and rough around the edges. Nevertheless, punters of the game will not be dissatisfied with the medium variance slot machine gameplay, nor will they be disappointed with the stacked wilds feature and round of 10 free spins.
