If you have the played the original Irish Eyes online slot game, you will find that the sequel hasn’t really surpassed it on any level. The graphics in Irish Eyes 2 are quite similar to those in the first game, meaning they don’t exactly dazzle with high definition, they aren’t 3D, and they don’t feature the most sophisticated animations either. However, the symbols are a little different, with only the lovely redhead and lower value playing card icons still in place as before. As for the higher paying ones, they include a smoking pipe, a four-leaf clover, the leprechaun’s hat and a golden ring. The soundtrack, on the other hand, hasn’t changed at all.
Technically speaking, you will find that the layout is also pretty much the same. It still features the same old grid of 5 reels and 3 rows, and just as with the original title, you will have a total of 25 active paylines to place your bet on. Furthermore, these are not fixed, so you can reduce them to a minimum of 1 paylines, if you like. Therefore the minimum stake makes this an attractive offering for penny players at 1p per spin. The maximum bet extends quite a bit further than the first Irish Eyes game, though – up to £250 per single spin.
Where to Play
This time the red haired girl is the game’s Wild symbol, and she is also the highest paying icon, too. In fact, with her help you can pocket up to a hefty 5,000 coins from a winning combination of 5. You can expect to see the Wild in pretty much any position, anywhere on the reels, and it will be able to substitute for any of the other symbols on the reels except for the Scatter.
Pot of Gold
The Scatter is nowhere near as lucrative as the game’s Wild symbol, but it too can appear anywhere on the five reels. More importantly, it will be able to trigger the single special feature in Irish Eyes 2 which is the Freespins feature. You will have to land at least 3 Scatter symbols during the same spin in order to trigger this feature, and then depending on exactly how many you landed, you will receive a certain number of free spins.
Thus, 3 Scatters will award you a total of 10 free spins, 4 Scatters will give you 15 free spins, and you can receive the maximum of 20 free spins for landing all 5 Scatter symbols simultaneously. Better yet, the free spins come with a 3x multiplier, so all winnings will be tripled during this bonus round. On top of that you will also have the opportunity to retrigger it and potentially benefit from a grand total of up to 40 free spins.
In all honesty, we really have to question the reason behind releasing Irish Eyes 2 – what was the point? It’s hardly an improvement on the original title, and as far as the features go, there’s even less in store for players than there was in the first.
