Free Shamrockers Eire to Rock Slot Machine Game + Real Money Casinos
Released on St Patrick’s Day in 2016, the Shamrockers Eire to Rock video slot by IGT is boasting an Irish theme, no doubt about it. However, unlike most Irish-themed slots that focus on leprechauns from legends and pots of gold, this one showcases a modern-day Irish rock band.
Music is a huge part of Irish culture, so it makes total sense. Furthermore, could you think of more perfect name for an Irish band than Shamrockers? Come on!
The game features quite eye-pleasing visuals and some rocking animations. There is no typical Irish folk music in the game; every once in a while a short solo will mark a winning combo but nothing over the top. The reel set is placed against an Irish landscape, green fields and magical rainbow colours, and it’s framed by a nice Celtic-style golden frame.
Shamrockers Eire to Rock is more for high-stake rollers. It requires patience and a sizeable budget. The return to player rate rises up to 96.20%, and the top payout is 1,000 coins.
Some sort of stage also appears to be mounted below the reels. The columns are solid green and there are 5 of them, complemented by 3 rows of symbols which include standard playing card icons and band members. Symbols A, K, J, Q and 10 represent lower payout values, whereas four band members (a ginger singer, a lady drummer, a violinist, or a fiddler, and a dandy guitarist with shades) offer sizeable payouts for four and fine matching symbols on a win line.
Shamrockers Eire to Rock has 20 paying lines, which are fixed. You can only set the size of your line bet and then see what your total bet is while all win lines are active. The game offers the possibility of Autospin, but the Gamble feature is nowhere to be seen. There are two special symbols to pay attention to, a three-leafed clover and the gig ticket. The clover acts as Wild, replacing every other base game symbol, while the ticket is the Scatter which activates the main feature and can’t be replaced by the Wild.
The base game runs in a conventional fashion; line wins pay left to right and you need at least three matching symbols on a line to score a payout. To make the gameplay more exciting IGT introduced the Dynamic Stacks feature. Any of the character symbols can appear in stacks and even cover the entirety of the 5 reels. The feature opens up big opportunities for huge wins. In addition, players can enjoy the free spins round which may seem predictable, but what really happens on the reels is far from it. The Free Spins bonus is triggered by 3 of the ticket Scatters on the middle reels.
The prize is 4 free spins. Not much? They come with some extra features, designed to compensate. On each spin, one of the character symbols will appear stacked across all 5 reels. On spin one, it’s the fiddler; on spin two the drummer, on spin three the guitarist and on spin four the singer. Keep an eye on that last spin - there is a possibility of landing a golden VIP ticket which re-triggers the round. The special, golden VIP ticket appears on reel 5 only. Some say it happens 50% of the time. If you obtain the luck of the Irish, you may win a maximum of 240 free spins.
Base game wins may be sparse, but once you trigger the free spins, it’s not that hard to add more free plays and extend the winning streak. Shamrockers Eire to Rock is also available on Androids, iPads, iPhones, tablets and PCs.
