Shamrockers

Which came first, the Shamrockers video slot or the dozens of Irish rock bands that have taken the name as their own? It doesn't matter if you are a video slot enthusiast. What is important is that this Irish-themed game offers a different take on the Free Spins bonus that makes for an exciting feature you will look forward to triggering every time you play.

GAME INTRODUCTION to Shamrockers Slot

Shamrockers is a 5-reel slot game with 20 fixed paylines arranged in a colourful interface combining traditional Irish symbols with rock 'n roll. Your favourite characters play their instruments as the reels spin and your winnings rack up. Keep an eye out for the Shamrock and the Bonus Ticket symbols; these are your Wild and Bonus symbols respectively.

HOW TO PLAY Shamrockers Slot

BASE GAME

Because all 20 paylines are fixed, there is no need to worry about them before you begin spinning. You do have to establish your Line Bet, though, so use the left and right arrow buttons to do that. You will see your Total Bet adjust up or down accordingly.

The 'Spin' button is located at the centre screen; to the right is the 'Win' box, then your total balance followed by the 'Auto Spin' and 'Settings' buttons. Should you choose automatic spinning, you will have the opportunity to decide how many spins the game makes for you.

WILD AND BONUS SYMBOLS

The Wild symbol in Shamrockers substitutes for all other symbols except the Bonus symbol. It can make its own combinations or combine with other symbols to create winning combinations on any of the 20 paylines. The Scatter symbol initiates the Free Spins bonus and an exciting and unusual feature that goes with the bonus round.

DYNAMIC STACK FEATURE

The Dynamic Stack feature of Shamrockers is similar to the stack features on other games. For every spin, each reel includes a large stack of like symbols that increase your chances of winning if the reels land in just the right way. Stacked symbols are chosen randomly by the game prior to every spin.

SHAMROCKERS SLOT FREE SPINS BONUS

The Free Spins bonus is activated by achieving three Bonus symbols during standard play. Note that Bonus symbols only appear on reels 2-4. The round starts with four free spins and goes from there. On each of the four spins, there is a specific character stacked across the reels that can increase your winnings. Those characters are the drummer, fiddler, guitarist and singer. If you land a VIP Golden ticket on reel 5 during the fourth spin, you will trigger an additional four spins and the bonus round starts over again.

A Free Spins bonus with just four free spins to start does not sound like much compared to some other games that can award you up to 50 free spins, but the extra characters that are stacked significantly increase winning potential. You will understand just how beneficial this is the first time you play the bonus round in Shamrockers.
