- The best Irish-themed slots to play to celebrate St. Patricks Day
March 17th marks St. Patrick’s Day, a public holiday in Ireland which is celebrated worldwide. While St. Patrick’s Day parties look a little different this year, you can still pay homage to the Emerald Isle by playing some of the internet’s best slot games.
Ireland has long been an inspiration for casino game developers and has become one of the most popular slot themes. Perhaps this popularity is because the Irish are said to possess the one thing all casino gamblers need—luck!
“The luck of the Irish” phrase has been used since the 1800’s when Irish immigrants were said to have an unparalleled ability to find precious metal during the rushes, but has come to mean good fortune, regardless of your nationality!
Celebrate St Patrick’s Day by playing one of the top Irish themed slot games online:
1) Lucky Clovers
A 2017 release from Nucleus Gaming, Lucky Clovers is certainly the most atmospheric game on this list. Though it’s set at nighttime, with 5 reels and 40 paylines, the game is anything but tired. In fact, Lucky Clovers is one of the most exciting Irish slots games online.
The game has 3 progressive jackpots, a 96.3% RTP, and a fantastically high bet limit for the high rollers among us. The wilds and scatter symbols are great, but the 4 bonus rounds in Lucky Clovers are what really take the game to the next level. Some bonus rounds contain free spins, and some contain minigames! Watch the sixth reel on each spin – that’s where the bonuses are triggered.
2) Lucky 6
With a maximum win of 66,666x your wager, you could really get lucky playing Lucky 6! The game features 6 reels, 10 paylines and a bright, friendly interface. It’s perfect for casual players, with bet limits of $0.1 – $10.
Keep an eye out for the wild rainbow symbols which will double the payouts, as well as the scatter symbols which spell out LUCKY6. Depending on how many letters you hit, you can win free spins and huge payout multipliers. The game is of medium volatility and has a 96% RTP.
3) Paddy’s Lucky Forest
A brand new slots game, Lucky Forest is a progressive jackpot with 720 ways to win! It has a unique format for a 5 reel slot, offering a 3x4x5x4x3 reel array. Because the game was just launched at the start of the month, the RTP is still unknown. That said, it has been developed by industry giants Realtime Gaming whose slots usually offer over a 93% RTP.
Aesthetically, we love the whimsical look of Paddy’s Lucky Forest. The symbols are highly detailed, and the inclusion of slippery wilds (shamrocks) really adds to the game. Keep your fingers crossed for the pot of gold scatter symbols which give free spins and instant prizes.
While the game is highly volatile, the prizes can definitely be worth it! The progressive jackpots are mini ($40 starting value), minor ($100) and major ($400), and the maximum payout is a whopping 1,440x your initial stake.
4) Lucky Irish
For those of you who like simple games, Lucky Irish is the one for you. It is incredibly close to traditional fruit machine games, though it has a tasteful Irish theme. With just 3 reels and 1 horizontal payline, it doesn’t get more old school than this.
As well as betting between $0.1 – $10, players wager between 1 and 3 coins. Payouts with 3 coins wagered can be as much as 2,400x the initial stake.
5) Charms and Clovers
If you like exceptional 3D video slots with smooth animations and plenty of detail, look no further. Another progressive jackpot, Charms and Clovers is a medium-high volatility game in stunning high definition colour. Offering 6 reels and 40 paylines, wilds, scatter symbols, and a 96.31% RTP, there is a lot to love.
For high-stakes players, Charms and Clovers is a fantastic online slots game. The line bet varies from $0.02 – $5, while the stake itself can vary from $0.80 to $200!
If you love bonus rounds as much as we do, look out for the sixth reel where they are triggered – you’ll find mini games such as megawheels and lucky dips which multiply your original stake. You could win up to 20x your bet in the minigames alone!
