Paddy's Lucky Forest Slots

Most slot players have tried a few games based on Irish luck before. They've also tried games based on leprechauns and all the other trappings of the theme. Think of pots of gold, rainbows, and other signs of good fortune.

You've got all this and more featured in the new Paddy's Lucky Forest slot game. If you are keen to find out more about it, we've reviewed this entertaining slot here for you.

Developer information to start us off

We always like to see who is behind a new slot game. In this case, the answer is Realtime Gaming, although you might also know them as RTG.

Demo potential

If you've played other games from the RTG collection, you'll know they typically include demo versions with the paid games they release. That looks likely with this one as well.

More information about the theme

The slot theme here is St Patrick's Day, with a touch of good old Irish good fortune thrown in. It's a great mix and ideal for the release of this game, just in time for St Paddy's Day itself.

Does the game offer great design elements?

Yes, if you like your slot games to have plenty of color, you'll like the way they've designed this one. All the trappings of the Irish theme are there, from that leprechaun to the four-leaf clover, rainbows, and horseshoes. That points to the good fortune theme too - a great mix of elements to look forward to.

What should you expect when you play Paddy's Lucky Forest?

This forest has five reels in it, but each one has a different quantity of symbols. We've got a 3-4-5-4-3 format, but they haven't used it as a diamond formation. Instead, the lowest positions on each reel line up with each other, giving us a peak on the middle reel.

It doesn't take long to spot three jackpots either. They're not progressive but each one is bigger than the last. They go from the mini one through the minor to the major jackpot amount.

You have two special icons to look for when you play the Paddy's Lucky Forest slot game. The first of these is the wild symbol, which is the four-leaf clover we mentioned earlier. You've then got a pot of gold appearing as the scatter.

No paylines in this game

Unfortunately, no - the game has something else in store though, namely 720 potential ways to find some prize-winning combos.

A decent range of available wagers

As always with RTG slots, you can expect a range of bets to choose from whenever you play the game. You just need one bet per spin here, and that will cover all the winning ways you might benefit from.

Paytable details

We can always rely on RTG to give us plenty of information in their paytable. The same applies here, so make sure you check it over before you take your first spin of the reels.

Bonus features in Paddy's Lucky Forest

There is one bonus element here, and the best thing is it can happen during the base game and in the free spin round (more about that shortly). Whenever a wild symbol appears on the second, third, or fourth reel (or two or three of them), it becomes a Slippery Wild.

This means the wild stays where it is, as you spin the reels again. With each subsequent spin, the wild slips to the position below it. This carries on until the wild eventually slips off the bottom of its reel. If you manage to spin two or more wilds onto the reels at once, all the wilds become Slippery Wilds. This means you can take advantage of having more of them around for more spins.

How can you secure some free spins?

If you wondered whether the scatter was the key to these spins, you were correct. Find three of them on the middle three reels and you'll see the leprechaun pop up on a second screen. He's got three pots of gold for you, and while none hold real gold, they do contain several things. Here's what you might find in those pots:

• An instant prize • A maximum of 15 free games to play • The chance to pick another pot of gold

If you get the extra pick, it means you can net more than one prize from the picking bonus. If you manage to score some free games, you then go on to play those. You can find more freebies in the first set of games too, by finding more scatters as you originally did.

If you manage to pick up the instant prize, expect a coin win worth up to 50x the bet that unlocked the picking round to start with.

RTP details

This section is necessarily short as there is no advertised return to player statistical data for this game.

How much do we love this slot game?

A lot! We love this theme anyway, and it is the perfect release ahead of St Patrick's Day. The Slippery Wilds feature is cool to see during play, and the free games and picking bonus are also ideal. It's certainly worth a score of 8/10.

Everyone wants those jackpots

The jackpot prizes are always on your screen, and we know they randomly drop during paid games. Who knows when that might occur? The paytable reveals the rest of the prizes, so there are plenty of ways to look out for some entertaining returns on your bets here.

Start with the practice version

Paddy's Lucky Forest is a superb game to play, but we'd suggest starting with the demo before considering whether the paid game is right for you.

RTG casinos let members try the real thing

You'd need to be a member to get access to the real game, so if you like the demo, you know what to do.

Available on tablet and smartphone too

Yes, you can play on iOS and Android devices if you'd rather take Paddy's Lucky Forest with you wherever you go.
