Gold Glitters in the Dirt
The Spud O’Reilly is a 3-row, 5-reel, 20-adjustable payline slot set against a country view of a cartoonish potato farm complete with Spud, his wife, their tractor and even Spud’s favorite pair of knickers for slot symbols. Minor win animations, such as green smoochies across knickers or Spud’s waving wife, bring the higher paying symbols to life. The music & sound effects set a pleasantly comic tone. Overall, the cartoonish graphics put this online slot in an average to below average category when compared with slots from top competitors such as NextGen which offers comparable cartoonish slot options at a sharper, cleaner visual quality.
Spud O’Reilly’s Crops of Gold displays all values for Bet/Line, Total Bet, Win and Balance in cash along the bottom of the slot screen. Players may choose a Total Cash Bet ranging from 1p – £2.000 at SlotsMillion by selecting a number of Lines (1 – 20) and Bet/Line (1p – £100). The values listed in the Paytable are shown in coins which remain fixed despite changes in bet selection. Spud O’Reilly auto-calculates wins by multiplying the Pay by the Bet/Line and then displays the value in the win box.

Shear Spud’s Sheep for Cash
Overall, while the theme and animations are comically entertaining, this online slot may fall short for players that prefer slots with richer graphics. We gave the demo version of this online slot a 200 test spin run at SlotsMillion. During the first 100 spins, Spud O’Reilly’s Crops of Gold produced 4.2 Main Game wins every 10 spins. Of those wins, only 21% were profitable with the largest Main Game win awarding 21.2x the Total Bet. The Sheep Shearing Bonus triggered 2 times awarding, at most, 5x the Total Bet. Free Games did not trigger during the first 100 spins. It finally triggered after 150+ spins awarding a total of 10 Free Games and 72.8x the Total Bet allowing us to recoup some losses. Out of 200 spins the Shearing Sheep Bonus activated 5 times awarding 2x – 5x the Total Bet. Fans of farm themed slots may also enjoy Microgaming’s Bar Bar Black Sheep or Quickspin’s Big Bad Wolf.
