Irish Eyes is a slot machine with a theme inspired by the Irish people and their legends. The title refers to the typical color of the eyes for an Irish woman, and you do get a redhead on the reels of this Microgaming slot. The rest of the images you’re presented with include things like pots of gold, shamrocks, leprechauns or rainbows. It’s a very common choice of icons, so that’s not a plus in the slot’s favor. There are other things though, like the wild symbols, scatters or the free spins that triple wins. Even the payouts are good, reaching $20,000. The slot has 25 lines & 5 reels.
Betting and Prizes
The bets that are placed in Irish Eyes will cover up to 25 lines, with a similar number of coins for them. You have denominations which start at $0.01 and can go up to $2, and with all the lines activated you can use up to $50 each spin.
The rewards mentioned in the paytable are good, at 10,000x in the base game (up to $20,000) and tripled that amount during free spins (up to $60,000 possible).
Irish Eyes Slot Features
One of the two symbols that you will be glad to see is the Leprechaun. The symbol shows you a short man, dressed in green, holding a cane in one hand and a gold coin in the other. You can use this symbol to complete winning combinations, since it can substitute for another, as long as it is a regular one. Should you get the Leprechauns multiple times on the same line, you can get paid if they form a combo, offering as much as 10,000 coins back to you.
The Lady is the other symbol. It’s the scatter of the game, the one symbol that you don’t care where it lands, as long as there are at least two or three of them. It’s a bit different here, since you do need the scatters on the reels going from left to right, but at least they don’t have to be on the same line. The cash prizes require 2 or more symbols, while the feature needs three. Prizes are in a range of 2x to 100x total bet.
With 3+ Lady scatters, you get 12 free spins that you can use. All prizes are tripled while that feature is active.
Theme & Design
The look of the slot is normal for an Irish game. You have the image of a green meadow in the background, with flowers and a path that leads to the end of a rainbow. As the legends mention, that’s where leprechauns hide their pots of gold. The symbols include plenty of poker cards, but there are some themed icons as well.
It’s difficult to be impressed with Irish Eyes since it has such a common theme, but the developers have done a good job with it, so I’d suggest you try it out if you don’t mind the topic.
