Irish Charms has been designed as a way for fans of the classic slot machines to enjoy the Irish theme, which has already been covered to death in the 5 reel category. The creator of this game, and of other slots that use the same recipe, is Pragmatic Play.
Irish Charms is giving us 3 reels that will spin each round, and they will play host to up to 3 active lines. There is an excellent top prize to win here, which reaches a value of $30,000. The list of features is a lot shorter though, including only a wild symbol that should come in handy once in a while.
Betting and Prizes
Your first decision when you’re setting up the bet should probably concern the number of lines that are going to be activated. Because the top jackpot is worth more on the later lines, I would recommend you keep all 3 lines covered. The amount you can use on one line varies from $0.01 to $5, as you use anywhere from 1 to 10 coins, with denominations ranging from $0.01 to $0.50. You can place a bet of up to $15 for a single round of Irish Charms.
The jackpot of Irish Charms will give you 6,000x the line bet back, but only if the Green 7 symbol covers all three positions on the third active line. The prize in that case would get to a value of $30,000. That same combo of three Green 7s will pay only 3,000x on the second line, or 1,000x on the first line.
Irish Charms Slot Features
Players that are interested in the features of their slots will be mostly disappointed with the offer of Irish Charms. The game prefers to keep things simple, and in that it truly resembles the fruit slots of the past, the ones that you might still find in some land based casinos.
A single wild symbol has been selected to appear on the reels of the game, and it’s going to be the Green 7 that fulfills that role. As you’ve found out above, this symbol is also your trigger for the game’s top jackpot, so it can form combinations directly if you’re lucky, not just act as a substitute for others. I haven’t found any limits to its ability, so the wild can be combined with any other symbol, as long as they can form a combo together. There are no special features or powers attached to this wild.
Theme & Design
Pragmatic Play has used the same recipe in at least one other slot machine of theirs, relying on a very simple 3 reel layout and adding a common theme to it. The theme might be common for a 5 reel game though, and very rare in 3 reel slots, so it ends up being a more interesting design than you’d think at first. The Irish theme is that way, being present in dozens of different modern slots, but quite rare in the 3 reel ones.
Being an Irish inspired slot machine, it uses a lot of icons that are associated with this country and its legends. There is also a lot of green in its design, and it starts right from the Green 7 that acts as the wild. The regular symbols will show you the pot of gold, a lucky horseshoe, a four leaf clover, a green hat and a mug of beer.
Irish Charms is going to be an interesting slot machine, but only for the players that prefer this type of simple game, and wouldn’t mind getting a decent looking design as well.
