Follow the Rainbow to Discover That Pot o’ Gold
The Emerald Isle is a 3-row, 5-reel, 20-fixed payline video slot. Its reels are set against a gorgeous view of the ocean and framed by solid oak trees. The music and sound effects create a lively atmosphere of intrigue and adventure. Leprechaun Wild and Rainbow Scatter symbols animate on wins, and the background comes alive with fluttering butterflies. The overall visual quality is average – not so rich as to create slow loading times but not so simplistic as to be boring either.
This online slot lists cash values for Bet, Total Bet, Win and Balance beneath its reels. With Emerald Isle you can choose a Total Cash Bet ranging from 20p – £40 by selecting a Cash Bet/Line ranging from 1p – £2.00 at SlotsMillion. Emerald Isle lists coin pays in its Paytable which remain unchanging despite changes made to the Cash Bet. This online slot auto calculates wins by multiplying the Coin Win by the Cash Bet and then displays that value in the ‘win box.’ Scatter Pays are multiplied by the Total Bet.
Emerald Isle has 11 symbols dripping with golden promises. There are 2 special symbols: a Leprechaun Wild and Rainbow Scatter. The Wild can replace any regular symbol, triggers the Bonus Round, and forms its own winning combos of 1 – 5 matching symbols. The Scatter can form its own winning combos of 2 – 5 matching symbols as well as triggers the Free Games Feature. There are 9 regular Emerald Isle symbols with 3 higher-paying and 6 lower-paying. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Redhead, Pot o’ Gold, Clover, Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9.
Emerald Isle’s gameplay is left to right and requires 1+, 2+ or 3+ matching symbols to win (beginning from reel 1). Various symbols require a differing number of minimum symbols to form a win. Get 1+ Wilds, 2+ Scatters or higher-paying symbols and 3+ lower-paying symbols to form a winning combo. Multiple wins along differing paylines can be added together to form a larger ‘total win’ on a single spin.
To profit along a single payline, players must get 2+ Rainbow Scatters, 3+ Redheads or Wilds, 4+ Jacks – Redheads or 5+ of any. The highest paying symbol of this online slot is the Leprechaun Wild which pays (2, 10, 175, 1000, 6000) giving Emerald Isle the potential to award up to £12.000 along a single payline and up to £240.000 along all 20 paylines on a single spin at SlotsMillion.

Emerald Isle Bonus Features

Once a match is found, the game ends and a prize is awarded! A Win Multiplier of up to 5x may or may not be randomly awarded to the amount.

Open Treasure Chests for Riches Untold
Fans of Leprechaun or nature themed slots will enjoy the graphics and setting of Emerald Isle, and the music is exceptionally relaxing. While testing the demo version of Emerald Isle at SlotsMillion, this online slot produced 3.7 wins every 10 spins. About 30% of the total Main Game wins were profitable. During the first 100 spins, no Bonus Features activated, however, Rainbow Scatters awarded 3 wins that paid double the Total Bet. The Bonus Round activated after 150+ spins awarding a win of 15x the Total Bet. Free Games did not activate even after 400 spins which was quite disappointing but suggestive of a potentially large prize.
