The Luck O the Irish Fortune Spins slot machine is one of the most popular £500 jackpot slots currently available in the UK. Found in the bookies, bingo halls, motorway service stations and adult gaming centres (AGC’s) the Luck O the Irish slot machine is a very fair, simple, featureless game that appeals to all player types. Luck O the Irish is now available to play online, simply use the link on the right.
There are several types of the Luck O the Irish slot machine; the regular version, Power Spins, Fortune Spins and online. The regular version is the most common and has a jackpot of £500, with four different stake levels; 20p, 50p, £1 and £2. Power Spins has a fixed stake of £2, Fortune Spins can be up to £20 and online stakes range from 10p, up to £200 per spin with the highest RTP of all of the options.
The regular £500 jackpot version can be played in Betfred and William Hill bookies, as well as most arcades and motorway service stations. Percentages vary depending on your playing stake and the settings of the operator. £2 per play is by far the best option, with each reel able to spin in Luck of the Irish mystery symbols. These mystery symbols convert to one of the awards, with three or more in a row paying a win along one or more of the ten winlines. All of the mystery symbols are identical and it is possible to win the jackpot with five pots on a winline.
The other stakes all have regular reel symbols without any mystery bonuses.
The Fortune Spins are available in the bookies version and online. The Fortune Spins play the same as the regular version of Luck of the Irish on £2 per spin, however it is played on four smaller slots. Each slot spins in turn, from the top left first. Any mystery symbols that land anywhere in view are transferred to the remaining slots, so by the time you reach the fourth slot, it is possible to have large clusters of mysteries to create massive winning combinations on multiple slots.
In the bookies you are far better playing on £2 per spin rather than the Fortune Spins, however online the Fortune Spins are much better value. The long-term RTP online is far higher than anything the bookies can offer, as is the jackpot value. If you play £10 per spin in an online casino, you have the potential to win several thousand, in the bookies you will never be able to win more than £500 in a single game. The Fortune Spins online are also available on any stake, although the reel symbols vary in value depending on your stake.
This version is very rare and involves a mini slot machine prior to playing the regular Luck of the Irish game. It is basically an attempt at getting the Fortune Spins version of the slot into regular arcades and bingo halls.
The first part of the Power Spins game is played at £2 per spin. The three reeled slot has only two symbols; blanks and clovers. Three clovers takes you to the Luck of the Irish Fortune Spins version of the game, with four mini slots and mysteries that transfer exactly as mentioned above. As the maximum jackpot is £500, the Power Spins game is extremely poor value for money and can be incredibly expensive to achieve a win of any kind. Power Spins often pay large wins or nothing at all, and it is not uncommon to insert £200 or more without seeing a single win.
The Power Spins average a game on the regular reels every £20, however you may get several in close succession then large dry patches, definitely one to be played with caution.
SG-Gaming attempted to copy the idea of Luck of the Irish with their version; Sheik Yer Money which can be played in both Ladbrokes and Coral betting shops. Despite the simple concept, SG_Gaming failed to make their version as entertaining, Luck of the Irish wins hands down.
The best stake to play is £2 in any land-based venue, always avoid the Fortune Spins on any bookies slot machine. Online, choose a stake to suit your budget as you will get a much fairer game.
