Online casino players celebrate St Patrick's Day by wagering on Irish themed online pokies. One of the best at Australian online casinos is titled Shamrock Isle. Rival Gaming launched this video pokie way back in 2010, but it still remains popular. You can play it at online casinos like Joe Fortune and Ignition Casino.
An animated clip is played out as the online pokie loads. The leprechaun is usually the star of Irish themed pokies and so it is with Shamrock Isle. The leprechaun takes players to the verdant glade which forms the background to the reels. When he reaches there is a shower of gold. The leprechaun is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. It also awards the highest line payout of 5000 coins. Shamrock Isle is a pokie with variance on the higher side. The other high paying symbols are the usual found in Irish themed online pokies. These include crown, shamrock and unicorn. The low paying symbols are playing card icons ornately designed in green and gold. The harp symbol triggers the free spins bonus round. Three harp symbols award 10 free spins, four harp symbols award 20 free spins and five harp symbols award 125 free spins. Do not expect to get the last too often. The payouts are tripled during the free spins. During the free spins the leprechaun wild symbol appears only on the first three reels, but makes up by becoming an expanding wild.
The pot of gold symbol triggers the bonus game on the second screen. You can select from the three games offered. In the Coin Grab feature, gold coins fall from the sky and you have to collect them. Each gold coin awards bonus credits. But you have time till the leprechaun grabs a gold coin, because when that happens the feature will end. In the Road Bowl feature you have to aim at flags and get bonus credits depending on how many you hit. In the Skittles feature you throw pins at skittles and get bonus credits depending on how many pins stick to them. Each bonus feature has been designed to provide the same average return. So it does not matter which you choose.
Shamrock Isle online pokie has the standard 5×3 reels structure with 20 selectable paylines. But you should always play with all paylines enabled. You can wager up to 10 coins per payline. The coin size ranges from AU$0.01 to AU$0.25.
