About the Developer

The history of Barcrest dates back to 1968 in the UK. It was at the height of popularity all through the 1970’s to 1990’s. At some point, every British pub had Barcrest games. The company was acquired by IGT in 1998. In 2011 it was sold to Scientific Games. The brand is continually growing and its titles are getting better and better with time.

About the Game

The slot has a colourful design and an Irish luck theme featuring symbols like 4-leaf clovers, mushrooms, horseshoes, rainbows and harps. The lucky leprechaun pays the highest value of 500x your line stake for 5 and can also appear as a stacked symbol on the reels. The game has an unusual reel layout with a different arrangement on each side i.e. a 5×4 on the left and a 5×12 Colossal Reel set on the right side.

  • Rainbow Riches symbol- This symbol becomes wild when it forms part of a winning combination. It replaces all the other symbols except the Free Spins one. Sometimes these symbols can fill the reels on the main reel set. Not only that but each stacked reel moves over to the corresponding reel on the Colossal Reel set.
  • Magical fairy bonuses- Look out for the magical fairy during the main game. It strikes and gives you access to these 7 mini-features;

-Super Stacked Wilds feature – the fairy will strike the main reel set and fill 1 or more reels with stacked Rainbow Riches icons. These will then move over to the Colossal Reel set and turn those reels wild.

-Wishing Well Bonus feature –All the club, heart, spade and diamond symbols transform into Wishing Well symbols. These change into higher value symbols like shamrock, harp, mushroom, horse show or the wild symbol.

-Magic Wilds feature –Both of the reel sets with blocks of Magic Wilds appear. They slide up and down the reel and stick in position turning the particular reel position wild.

-Wild Burst feature –Butterflies land on both the reel sets. The symbols get covered by the butterflies and transform into wilds.

-Near Miss Win feature –The reels shift to help give you a winning spin.

-Reel Win Multipliers feature – the fairy rewards you with different multipliers of 2x, 3x or 5x. They’re then applied to the payout.  

-Near Miss Free Spins feature- the fairy strikes when you land 2 Free Spins bonus symbols. The fairy adds more of them and help activate Free Spins.

  • Free Spins feature- It’s activated when you land 3 or more balloon bonus symbols. The number of balloon symbols you land determine the number of picks you get:

-3 symbols reward 10x your bet and 1 pick from 3 balloons

-4 symbols reward 25x your bet and 2 picks from 4 balloons

-5 symbols reward 200x your bet and 3 picks from 5 balloons

-6 symbols reward 200x your bet and 4 picks from 6 balloons.

The more picks you get, the better your chance of adding to your free spins tally. You can gamble your way to more free spins before the free spins end. If you decide to do so, you’ll see 5 dials offering different amounts of free spins.

  • Big Bet Mode feature- Players get 5 linked spins, but these will be charged at a higher stake. The £10 option gets you extra Rainbow Riches wilds on the main reel set which transfer onto the corresponding Colossal Reel and expand.

£15 option does the same and also gets you 10 to 50 free spins if you can manage to light all the 7 bonus symbols. For £20, wilds expand on the Colossal Reel set but also light 6 bonus symbols and reward 15 to 50 free spins. £25 sees Rainbow Riches symbols expand and fill the corresponding Colossal Reel and turn wild, light 5 bonus symbols and reward 20 to 50 free spins.

The Verdict

The higher the bet you place, the more you improve your chances of winning. Playing at £2 or less has an RTP % of 94 which increases to 96 if you up your stake over £2. For Big Bet Mode, the RTP % is 98%!
