The countdown to Saint Patrick’s Day is on.
Soon, everyone with a drop of Irish blood in them will be pledging their undying love to the Emerald Isle, donning green attire and indulging in one or two glasses of a a famously Irish drink...
And as the old saying goes: if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
On Paddy’s Day (Friday 17th March), from 5pm until midnight, we’re giving you the chance to win a share of £10K in the Rainbow Riches Bingo Room. In true Irish fashion, the celebrations continue over the weekend and into Monday.
In the meantime, we’re dusting off our top hats and ranking our top five Irish-themed slots:
In at number 5, Leprechaun’s Luck is a five-reel, 20-pay-line online slot from Ash Gaming. Working along familiar Irish themes, the game incorporates some fantastic bonus features, including a 10,000 coin jackpot. Change the background colour to suit your mood, and your stake to fit your pocket. Find The Rainbow of Wealth and you’re guaranteed a bonus. You could even win up to 1000 times your stake. The Wishing Well Bonus scoops you cash prizes and both can trigger the progressive jackpot. Finally, there’s a Free Spins round, with enhanced reels to maximise your winnings.
An Irish-themed game from Australian company Eyecon, Irish Luck slot is full of mystical creatures and traditional symbols all set against a charming forest background. You’re firmly in control, with a choice of bet, amount of credits per line, and number of pay-lines. Plus you can play manually or select auto spin for freedom on the go. Two separate scatter symbols trigger two bonus rounds – Prize Pick and Match and Win and if you find the four leaf clover wild, you can double your personal pot of gold. Irish Luck bingo is also available.
Another popular Irish Eyecon title, Fiddle Dee Dough, is charmingly simple, with just three reels and nine pay-lines. Any three of the abundance of stereotypically Irish symbols will result in winnings, but, as with Irish Luck, it is the scatters which you want to land. Three smiling leprechaun scatters anywhere on the reels will yield eight free spins, and cause each subsequent win to be multiplied by three. The second scatter is a pot of gold, and three will open a mini Prize Pick game with three chances to win 111x your stake.
Just pipped to the post, Clover Rollover offers a scenic journey to rural Ireland with its attractive backdrop and traditional symbols. In addition to being very visually appealing, the five-reel slot from Playtech features an unusual progressive jackpot. Your jackpot winnings change depending on your initial stake per line.
This week, there’s also a special St Paddy’s Day weekend promo attached to Clover Rollover. Not only do you get £10 to spend on any game when you deposit £10 on Clover Rollover, you’ll also gain entry into The Random Money Monday prize draw.
At number one… It had to be the UK’s favourite slot game. Rainbow Riches has remained on top since its launch by Barcrest in 2006. Based on the hugely-popular land-based slot machine, Rainbow Riches features the iconic leprechaun and his quest to find the proverbial pot of gold at the ends of the rainbow. With a minimum stake of just a penny, and potential jackpot of £100,000, Rainbow Riches has enduring appeal for players of every level.
It’s an impressive list t’be sure, but if you’d prefer to explore further afield or even travel to a new land entirely then check out the Bucky Bingo games lobby for a fantastic slot selection. Here you'll find our new games Stampede and Twinkle!
