Stacks O’Gold is a game that’s going to follow a particularly well-known story, at least for a slot machine player. It’s inspired by leprechauns, the little men that are dressed in green and which use rainbows to mark the spots where they’ve hidden pots of gold. These creatures are often relied on to become main characters in Irish themed slots, and this iSoftBet creation is just the latest game to do that.
Perhaps in trying to offer something a bit more unique, Stacks O’Gold will feature 34 active lines on its 5 reels. You’re not going to be thrilled with its top payouts of $200, but rest assured, you still have a long-term RTP of 96.17%. Looking at the game’s features, among them you will find random Golden Wild stacks, sticky stacked wild reels, free spins, scatters and regular wilds.
Betting and Prizes
Games that require fewer coins than they have lines tend to be more appreciated by players, even though the RTP is the one that ultimately tells you what are your odds of winning. You get 20 coins in this game, to use in every wager that activates the 34 fixed lines. Selecting their value is the only option that you have left, and you take it from $0.01 to $1. For the complete betting range of Stacks O’Gold, you’re looking at $0.20 to $20, which is a very accessible range for all players.
You should expect the game to be as profitable as any other that is released right now. Its RTP of 96.17% tells you what the average player will get in the long run, but with prizes of up to $200, you can expect to land a lot of smaller wins in order to get there.
Stacks O'Gold Slot Features
First of all, as any self-respecting slot machine will do, Stacks O’Gold will also feature a wild symbol and in this case it’s going to take the form of the Pot of Gold. These wilds get to replace any other types of symbols, and as usual there is one exception, in the form of the scatter.
Moving on to the bonus symbol, this one sports the game logo, against an image of stacks of gold coins. Landing on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels, the symbols will only be present during regular spins. You get 15 free spins if you have three visible.
The free spins have some benefits over the paid ones. For one, you can get Golden Wilds from them, symbols that help you fill the pots of gold at a faster rate. During these spins, wild symbols are collectable, and once you have six you will find that reel 1 is transformed into a sticky wild, plus you also have 2 additional free spins. Get another 10 wilds from reels 2 to 5, to transform reel 3 the same way. After that, if you have yet another 10 wilds collected, then you get reel 5 as a wild as well. If you find a Golden Wild Pot, then you are immediately advanced to the next checkpoint with these wilds.
As each spin starts, you have a chance at triggering Golden Wild Stacks for it, with one of the reels 1, 3 or 5 being transformed.
Theme & Design
This is the old Irish theme, so don’t expect to be overly impressed with the story that’s behind it. You have the house of the leprechaun, dug inside a tree, and you have various other elements that are related to the Irish everywhere else. There are pots of gold, coins, shamrocks, hats, gold coins and golden horseshoes as symbols.
Stacks O’Gold can be a good pick for someone that enjoys a decent Irish themed slot, with an above average RTP.
