Most software developers have come up with at least one or two slot games based around the popular Irish good luck theme. NextGen Gaming is no exception, and they’ve even created a sequel to one of their more popular titles.
We’re going to look at both Irish Eyes and its sequel here, to see if we can figure out which one is the best to play. Of course, we’d recommend you try them both if you want to know what you really think. Will one prove better than the other?
We get a wild leprechaun here, which is no big surprise, and the Irish Eyes element is shown as a woman who appears as the scatter. Three or more ladies appearing from the left of the reels will bring you 12 free games to play. Better still, these games award a x3 multiplier on every prize won.
The lucky leprechaun could be luckier than you think here though. Not only is he a substitute, he also awards the top prize of 10,000 coins if five appear on a line you placed a bet on.
The first thing you notice about the sequel is the pretty woman appearing once again… except this time she takes the role of the wild. Five wilds on a line result in the top prize again, but now it is just 5,000 coins. However, the scattered pot of gold appearing three, four, or five times awards 10, 15, or 20 free games, so there is a chance to win more of those this time. The same x3 multiplier is in play as we saw in the original game.
It’s always tough to choose between the first game or its sequel. Oftentimes, both are as good as each other. The top prize is obviously far bigger in the original slot game, but the graphics are a lot sharper and more appealing in the sequel. We also don’t get to meet the leprechaun in the sequel, although you will see his hat!
Honestly, we prefer the original for the chance at a much bigger top prize. However, the odds on winning that are long, so if we disregard it, we’d go for the sequel. Perhaps the best bet here is to play both whenever you’re in the mood for an Irish slot game.
