Irish Eyes 2 Slot from NextGen
Irish Eyes 2 is the sequel to the popular slot from NextGen called Irish Eyes. The game has up to twenty five paylines to choose from, and runs over 5 reels. It is not a modern high definition slot by any means, but is quite a fun little one to play should you be in need of something to do on a rainy afternoon.
Irish Eyes 2 is a low variance slot, which means that you most likely won’t win a pot of gold playing it, but the odd gold coin will fall into your pocket on a fairly regular basis. The wager amount is a nice range of between 0,02 and 5 coins making it great for all budgets. The game has 175 staking options ranging from a minimum bet of just 0.02 coins all the way up to 125 coins. Irish Eyes 2 is fun, but rather bare on the special features front, offering only a free spins round and a wild symbol.
NextGen did not overtax themselves when doing the graphics for Irish Eyes 2. To be fair, this is a slightly older slot, and thus cannot be compared with very modern 3D high definition online pokies casino games, but even so it does lack a bit. The graphics are typical of a lower level slot game, with everything drawn and looking like they have been taken from a children’s book.
The reels are set against a typical green forest theme with trees sneakily hiding piles of gold coins, perhaps with the intent to tempt you into trying to win them. Main colours are gold and green, the national colours of Ireland, and can be found in the reels, bordering the reels, and of course in the background. Information layout is clear and not confusing at all with buttons at the bottom of the screen done in yes, you guessed it, gold and green.
The sound track is a typical Irish ditty with pipes and drums that definitely suits the theme and may not drive you ditty either.
Irish Mythology Theme and Symbols
The theme of the slot is of course one of Irish Mythology. It is full of four leaf clovers, and small green hatted men with big noses. Everyone knows that pots of gold can be found at the end of rainbows in the country and forest glens of the Emerald Isle, and Irish Eyes 2 makes full blatant use of this knowledge.
Our reels are full of four leaf clovers worth 400 coins for five of them in a row, leprechaun hats worth 750, and gold heart shaped rings worth 1500 coins for five. The base symbols are from a deck of cards, and although rather pretty are only worth 5 to 200 coins.
The flame haired Irish lass is the games wild, which means that she can happily replace any symbol found on your reels except for the pot of Gold scatter. She is found on only certain reels and not only replaces other symbols, but is also the highest paying symbol in the game awarding you 5000 coins for five of her in a row on an active payline.
The golden scatters launch the games free spins round, with the amount of spins depending on the amount of scatters found. Not only can this but they hold a multiplier too, having the potential to give you up to 100 x your stake.
