Emerald Isle Slot

Emerald Isle is another slot that follows the path set by Rainbow Riches. Developed by leading gaming house Cryptologic, this is one game that's sure to appeal to lovers of the growing Irish themed slot family. Ireland has been known as the Emerald Isle ever since it was framed in poetry under this name by Dr Drennan in a poem that's over two hundred years old and refers to its lush greenness and natural beauty.

Looking at the hard ins and outs of the Emerald Isle's mechanics, this is a five reel slot that gives you twenty selectable pay-lines spread over a standard fifteen stop space set up. You can adjust bet sizes to suit your bankroll and if you're just looking to sit back and rack up a few spins there's a handy auto-play function. As you'd expect the reels feature some nice symbols of Ireland, including a red haired girl (who could be straight out of some faraway valley) and a shamrock. The game's wild is a leprechaun of the more traditional tall-hatted variety who stops in with his own colourful reel animation and signature tune. The overall sound is good too, with a traditional pump handle sound-wave giving you that old time slot feeling every time you spin the reels.

Emerald Isle Bonus Rounds

There are a host of bonus features available on the Emerald Isle casino slot, giving you loads of chances to hit the big time wins. The first is a free spin bonanza that's activated when you stop in three or more of the ‘end of the rainbow' scatter symbols anywhere in view. This takes you to a magic second set of reels where you'll be given ten free spins with all wins trebled, barring of course the game's five wilds jackpot. You can even retrigger the bonus by hitting the necessary scatters, adding a further ten free spins to your total. The second set of reels are stacked with even more leprechaun wilds and ‘end of the rainbow' scatters giving you a real chance to grab some serious action from this fast paced feature.

The second screen bonus game is a grid based search game type feature that's rarely seen on slot games, making Emerald Isle stand out from many of its Irish themed peers. Stop in a leprechaun wild anywhere on reels one and five to activate this big money bonus. Hit this bonus and you'll be taken to a second screen where you get to pick three symbols off a grid. If you're lucky and you match all three then you could win a prize that's between 1 and 100x your activating stake. This is a really fun style bonus game that adds a nice variety to the reel game and free spin feature and should really appeal to people who've enjoyed similar games on fruit machines like Rainbow Riches Fields of Gold.

Although Emerald Isle is cosmetically like Rainbow Riches, we'd actually say it's more like another very famous slot, Cleopatra, with its triple paying free spin round. So if you're looking for that classic Cleopatra slots experience with a bright, fun Irish themed front end then Emerald Isle really is the slot for you.
