Playtech has launched a new online pokie titled Spud O Reilly’s Crop of Gold. As the name suggests, it has an Irish farming theme. But there is a sheep shearing angle that will draw Australian players to this online pokie. It will be available at Playtech online casinos like Mansion Casino and Casino.com.
The symbols on the reels are designed in a cartoonish manner and the win animations are equally humorous. Spud is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. It also awards the top line payouts with five wild symbols on an active payline awarding 10,000 times the line bet. The top scatter payout is 500 times the total bet awarded by the shamrock symbol. The high paying symbols are Spud’s underpants, tractor and Mrs O Reilly. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons but they are depicted alongside some typically Irish items. These include lucky horseshoe, a pair of leprechaun’s boots and a glass of ale. Many of the symbols star paying from two-of-a-kind combinations and this results in frequent winning hits.
There are two bonus features in Spud O Reilly’s Crop of Gold online pokie. The Sheep Shearing Bonus is the feature on the second screen. It is triggered when three or more sheep bonus symbols appear consecutively on an active payline starting from the first reel. There are five sheep in a field on the screen and you get to pick as many as there were bonus symbols in the triggering spin. When you pick a sheep Spud comes along and shears a portion of its fleece revealing a random bonus payout.
The free spins feature is triggered by landing three or more shamrock symbols anywhere on the reels in the same spin. You are awarded 10 free spins. All line and scatter payouts will be tripled during the feature. However, if the second screen bonus is triggered during the free spins then its payouts will not be tripled. The free spins can be retriggered indefinitely.
Spud O Reilly’s Crop of Gold online pokie has 20 selectable paylines. The line bet can be varied from AU$0.01 to AU$100. This will easily satisfy the highest of high rollers at Australian online casinos. The online pokie also includes the regular Playtech functionalities. There is an Auto Play feature that allows you to set the online pokie for up to 99 spins without manual intervention.
