Game Controls The Golden Shamrock game panel has three main elements: video display, keypad, and game panel. The video display area shows the free spin reels, main game reels, and the pay table. The keypad area allows players to change the bet level, bet lines, coin value, select max bet, and spin. The game panel houses the controls for the game settings, autoplay, audio, and game rules. Players can select to play the game in fun or real money mode.
Golden Shamrock Game Play Regular game play includes wild substitution symbols in the form of a Leprechaun. This symbol will replace all but the bonus and scatter symbols. It should be noted that only the highest winning combinations appearing on a bet line will win. In addition to the wild substitution, there is an expanding wild, which turns into a rainbow with a cloud. It is an animated symbol appearing on reels 2, 3, or 4. It will expand to cover the entire reel in order to complete winning paylines.
To add to the entertainment of Golden Shamrock players can enjoy scatter wins and free spins. The scatter symbol is the three leaf clover in gold. For a scatter win players need at least 3 or more scatters. If this occurs the wins are going to receive a multiplier for an increased payout. The free spins are also unlocked with three or more scatter symbols. A text prompt “Select a scatter” will allow players to select one of the symbols to open, which reveals the number of free spins and the free spin multiplier. For the free spin wins up to 5 times multipliers can be seen. Two or more scatters in the free spin round will unlock 2 more free spins and up to 5 times multipliers.
In regular play, five pots of gold pays out 4,000 coins, five golden horseshoes pays 2,000 coins, and the harp pays out 1,500 coins for five symbols all on active paylines. The Leprechaun hat, when it appears on five reels pays 1,000 coins.
