Generally, slots, which adopt the theme of Irish mythology, involving white-green stripes, four-leaf clovers, pots of gold and many other similar popular images are both very good-looking and extremely profitable. iSoftBet’s Stacks O’ Gold is no exception. The background imagery is breath-taking. It is a full of light, emerald vegetation and blue water streams depiction of a cozy forest home.
All kinds of cool details are visible – the streaks of grass, the leaves and mushrooms by the pond, the little pebbles on the beach and even the blinking eyes of whatever is living in that tree to the left of the reels. A glorious rainbow is emerging from a pot of gold and right behind the reels players can notice the entrance and the house of the main character.
The gameplay involves 5 reels – reels 1, 3 and 5 have 3 positions, while the second and the fourth reel have 5 positions. The number of paylines is 34. Coin sizes can vary from 1 cent to 1 dollar. The maximum possible bet is 20 dollars. Players will be able to benefit not just from a spectacular collection of luck charm symbols but also through free spins and various features and effects connected with the wild of the game.
The wild and the bonus symbols don’t have payouts. The paying symbols are 7 and they each have 3 winning combinations, which involve between 3 and 5 matching symbols. The most rewarding symbol of the game is the golden four-leaf clover, which offers 20, 40 and 200 credits.
The green hat brings 15, 30 and 100 credits. The three glasses of beer award 10, 25 and 75 credits. The gold horse shoe grants 8, 20 and 50 credits. The gold coin with harp gives 5, 15 and 40 credits. The silver coin with the rabbit delivers 3, 10 and 30 credits and the bronze coin with the pig – 2, 5 and 20 credits.
The wild of the game is the pot of gold. It can replace the rest of the symbols in the game in order to create winning combinations. The only symbol that can’t be substituted is the bonus logo symbol. When 3 bonus symbols show up on the reels, 15 free spins will be awarded. The bonus symbol can make an appearance only on the first, the third and the fifth reel. During the free spins, special Golden Wild symbols can show up.
If throughout the free spins, 6 wilds appear anywhere, the whole of the first reel will be transformed into a wild reel and remain sticky for the rest of the feature. 2 free spins will also be added. If 10 more wilds are collected from reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, the third reel will become and remain wild for the remainder of the bonus round. Another 2 free spins will be awarded.
Then, if 10 wilds show up on reels 2, 4 and 5, the fifth reel will be turned into a wild one and 1 more spin will be awarded. Furthermore, the Golden Wild Stacks can be started randomly at the end of any kind of spin. When that happens the first, the third and the fifth reel will be completely covered with wilds.
Stacks O’ Gold Slots is a great game with spectacular background imagery and an exceptionally rewarding combination of free spins and sticky wilds that can easily turn this title into many players’ favourite.
