Playing card suits and a leaf clover are the game’s low value symbols. Depending on the combinations which land on the reels, these symbols can offer x0.05 to 0.25 the player’s stake.

A tankard and a horseshoe represent the medium value symbols, offering x0.1 to x0.5 the player’s wager depending on the combination of symbols which appear on the reels.

A harp, a cauldron filled with gold and a leprechaun are the game’s high value symbols. Depending on the combinations on the reels, these symbols can offer x0.2 to x0.75 the player’s bet.


The game also features multipliers, a fortune bet, free spins, a link bonus scatter and a buy bonus.

Multipliers are triggered when any of the three high value symbols land on the reels in a stack of three full adjacent columns. A random multiplier for the current win is then created, depending on the number of full stacks that have land.

Fortune bet allows players to pay an extra 30 per cent ante on top of their bet to activate more power from high value symbols, resulting in higher multipliers should those symbols stack three or more.

These higher multipliers are three full stacks 3x-6x, four stacks 3x-7x, five stacks 3x-8x and six stacks 3x-9x.

The game’s free spins symbol is a leprechaun hat. If three or more land on the reels, the free spins mode is triggered and five free spins are awarded, in which multipliers accumulate and are constant until the free spins end. Free spins can’t be retriggered and fortune bet has no effect.

The link bonus scatter is a golden leaf clover coin. If four or more land on the reels, the link bonus is triggered, all other symbols disappear and each scatter will reveal random credits or change colour to a corresponding prizepot.

The player then has three respins to continue revealing scatters. Once a new scatter appears on the reel, the respin counter is reset back to three. Link bonus and free spins can’t be triggered on the same spin.

Bonus coins can offer x1 to x10 the player’s stake, turquoise coins (mini) offer x20, purple coins (minor) offer x50 and maroon coins (major) offer x100. There is also a chance to fill the screen and claim a 1000x bonus

The game also has a buy bonus button to enter the link bonus mode for x32 the player’s stake.
