Irish Riches Megaways slot by Blueprint Gaming has some interesting features and a progressive Jackpot. We’ve all seen this theme before, using the luck of the Irish and pots of gold to win some big money it’s no wonder it’s used in so many slots. Plus there are a bunch of different characters and symbols you can use like leprechauns, rainbows, 4 leaf clovers and much more. It’s a theme I like and a lot of others do too, but how well does it work with Irish Riches Megaways slot?
Well, the overall design and graphics are fairly simple here, but that’s not a bad thing. This is a slot that wants you to focus on the gameplay and it does a great job of that. The colours are certainly nice and bright though and overall it’s quite a fun design. When we move on to the gameplay, that’s when things start to get interesting. For a start we have 6 reels here with a minimum bet of 20p and a maximum bet of £100. While that may not sound too exciting, Irish Riches Megaways slot uses cascading reels meaning that your number of ways to win can increases after winning spins, just like we saw with Sweet Alchemy slot. If this reaches a maximum, you’ll be looking at a whopping 117,649 ways to win! The basic aim of the slot is simple, to get a winning combination using the base symbols from left to right in order to win money or a bonus feature which I’ll get onto shortly. These base symbols are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9 (lowest value)
- Blue Jewel
- Green Jewel
- Red Jewel
- Pot of Gold (highest value)
Of course, there is also a Wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols apart from the Scatter symbol in a winning combination.
Irish Riches Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Cascading Reels. This is a pretty cool feature whereby every winning combination will disappear and be replaced by more symbols which fall in from above. This will continue until there are no more wins.
Mystery Symbol. This special symbol will transform into any other symbol where it lands apart from the scatter symbol to hopefully get you some extra wins.
Free Spins Bonus. The free spins feature in this game is fairly basic but works well nevertheless. You need 4 scatter symbols, represented by diamonds, anywhere on the reels in order to win 12 free spins. If another scatter symbol lands at any point you will be awarded an additional 5 extra free spins. Additionally, every win during the bonus will increase your multiplier by a value which initially starts at 1x and there is no upper limit to this. With some additional scatter symbols and nice winning combinations you can earn some pretty good money here before the bonus ends.
Progressive Jackpot. To be in win a chance of winning the Irish Riches Megaways slot jackpot you need to land 5 Jackpot King symbols. If you’ve played a Blueprint slot before you’ll probably know about the Jackpot King progressive jackpot network which this slot is linked to. Once you land the 5 symbols, you need to spin to reels and try and collect at least 15 Crown symbols which will take you to the Wheel King where you can earn either the progressive jackpot or a big multiplier.
So there you have it. Irish Riches slot certainly has quite a bit to offer and there’s a lot we like about it. The theme, while not original, is definitely solid and designed in a way that’s fun and appealing to a wide audience. The features are pretty simple but in a good way as they can definitely be profitable, especially through the free spins with the additional multiplier. It’s true that the biggest win can be found through the progressive jackpot but there’s a pretty slim chance of that coming up whereas you will get a good go at the other features from time to time. All in all then, a worthy slot that I can happily recommend.
