If you’ve played the original Slots O’ Gold slot game, you’ll find plenty that’s familiar in this sequel. That’s true of both the design and the gameplay. Once again, an idyllic woodland forms the backdrop to the reels. The symbols differ but they have a strong dash of fortune about them.
Joining the lower value A to 9 symbols are horse shoes, harps and green top hats. The best paying standard symbol is the pot of gold. Land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 of these in combination for a payout of 0.5, 1, 5, 10 or 50 times your total stake. Winning combinations are created by landing matching symbols on adjoining reels. These can start from both reel 1 and reel 6.
The number of symbols on each of the 6 reels changes with each spin. As does the number of MegaWays in play. If all 6 reels are at their maximum height, you’ll have 15,625 ways to win. You can see exactly how many are in play via the meter above the reels.
The Rainbow Gold logo is a mystery symbol. Whenever these hit. they all transform into the same matching symbol. A payout calculation is made with the matching symbols in position.
The smiling leprechaun is the game’s wild. Whenever this lands on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5, you’ll trigger the Rainbow Respin feature. The wild from the triggering spin expands to fill the whole reel and locks in position. A respin follows. If another leprechaun wild lands. the process is repeated. In theory you could get 4 respins with all 4 of the central reels wild for the last of them.
