The extent to which the fabled ‘Luck ’o the Irish’ has become a staple of slot designers’ inspirations for themes to apply to their new games seems somewhat limitless. The deluge of Leprechaun-powered slots that followed the blockbuster success of Barcrest’s legendary Rainbow Riches has been extraordinary, and yet players seem to have an insatiable appetite for this genre of reel entertainment. Have we reached ‘peak Irish slot’ yet? Not if Red Tiger has anything to do with it . . .
A CLUSTER OF LEPRECHAUNS
A couple of weeks back Red Tiger entered the fray of Rainbow Riches competitors at Neon Jackpot with its Rainbow Jackpots game, which is proving a hot ticket at the moment. However we were intrigued to see it follow up very quickly with another Leprechaun-curated game in the shape of its Jack in a Pot. Overkill? We think probably not, since this slot does its Irish jig with a different Cluster Pays mechanism that helps it stand out from the ‘Rainbow Riches rivals’ crowd. To date it’s been NetEnt that has been the champion of Cluster Pays slots, popularising this style of slot with its Aloha! game. Now Red Tiger is joining that party having recently scored a hit at Neon Jackpot with its Tiki Fruits, and looking to win over Irish slot fans to its Jack in a Pot.
JACK’S A WILD ONE
Beyond the core thrill of Jack in a Pot’s base game brings using Cluster Pay wins, Red Tiger has also blessed this slot with four different special Wild features that add reel modification magic to the mix. The overall effect is of a game we suspect will stick around in our Player Favourites list for some time. Leprechaun lovers now have a rather different way to chase that hoped for pot ’o gold at the end of Neon Jackpot’s gaming rainbow.
