Charms, Charms and More Charms
You’ll find that this game has been designed with a five reel and three row layout, which means that anyone accessing it will be provided with a very familiar interface. These reels are filled with various different symbols, which represent folklore and myths of Ireland. So, you’ll find icons of golden horseshoes, a pipe pumping out pink smoke, two tankards of beer, an accordion, a Leprechaun’s green hat, a harp surrounded by clover, a pot of gold and, of course, a golden shamrock. These have been designed in a very visually pleasing way, offering up intriguing imagery to accompany your game play.
In addition to its reels and rows, the game has also been imbued with a total of 20 different pay lines, although these can be customised to suit your own personal preferences. Furthermore, you can also customise the wager level of the game, and this can be done via two different areas. The first of these is the bet level, which is changeable between its minimum of one and its maximum of 10. And following on from that, you’re able to change the coin value from its minimum of $0.01, and this can be increased up to its highest peak of $0.50 per active line. Should everything be at its maximum level, you’ll be able to place an overall wager of $100 per round. There has also been a ‘Max Bet’ button included to allow you the possibility to place that wager with a single button click.
Especially for You at the End of the Rainbow!
The things that make this game perfect is its special features, and this all begins with its wild symbol. This is represented by the icon of the leprechaun, and as it’s a wild symbol, it will substitute for any other icon on the reels to form a win, except for the scatters. Furthermore, should any of the wild icons appear on reels two, three or four, they will expand to cover the entirety of the reels when completing a winning bet line.
In addition to this, you’ll be presented with scatter icons in the game, which are represented by the golden shamrock, of course. This will pay out wherever it appears on the reels, and if three or more should show up, you’ll also activate the freespins round. During this freespins round, if two or more scatters appear again, you’ll be rewarded with additional freespins or a multiplier. Freespins pay out a win times by a multiplier displayed in the game.
A Fulfilling End
Golden Shamrock doesn’t present much in terms of special features, but what it does bring is a charming game, which focuses on a fairly frequently done theme. While many developers don’t provide a decent enough focus on the theme their games are based on, Netent has brought Ireland and the stories told about the country to the forefront of this one, and it’s all done with stunning graphics and intriguing animations.
