Let’s take another stroll through the forests of Irish folklore with Paddy and the gang. This time there’s more than one little mischievous leprechaun hiding the pot of gold that we’re after but with a little luck, we’ll find it before too long.
Coming from developer RealTime Gaming, this title doesn’t add anything new to the theme and genre and that’s fine. If you’ve gotten over the theme then there will be little here to bring you back but if you’re fine with it or possibly new to the genre then you might find something here that’ll hook you.
Let’s dive in and see what this developer has brought to the table.
Theme & Symbols
Set in a green wooded area surrounded by trees, brush and toadstool mushrooms this is a scene that those who know the theme are all too familiar with. There isn’t anything too interesting going on in the background of this slot which, depending on how you view it, could be a good or a bad thing. There’s either nothing here to distract you or it’s quite bland.
Character designs are stock standard for our main leprechaun friend, donning all green attire and sporting a fiery ginger beard. What is different however is the addition of a female leprechaun and different fairies. While this isn’t enough to make it unique, it’s still a nice change of pace.
The artwork and graphics are pretty standard for RTG, which isn’t a bad thing the game still looks fairly decent, it also isn’t their best work to date.
Presentation wise, as a whole this video slot title is a bit disappointing considering how many games already exist in the genre. It would’ve been nice to see them take this concept and run with it considering they added in a few new ideas. Thankfully it isn’t bad enough to not play all together.
Starting with the lower paying icons, we have playing card suits made to look like lucky charms. You’ll be seeing Diamonds, Hearts, Clubs and Spades appearing quite often as you make your spins.
Next up we have the higher paying symbols. These are represented by things you’d expect to see when chasing a leprechaun, things like Rainbows, Paddy himself and his friends. These are the symbols you’ll want to keep your eyes out for as they bring the highest wins.
There is a Shamrock Wild that has the ability to substitute for any other common icon in the game. Landing this symbol will greatly increase your chances of landing a winning combination. There is also a unique bonus gameplay feature that triggers with this symbol.
The Pot of Gold represents the Scatter in this game, landing enough of these in the middle three reels will trigger a special gameplay feature.
Online Betting Options & Features
Paddy’s Lucky Forest is a 19 tile video slot jackpot game. There are a total of 720 betways. The grid is designed so that the top of it resembles a triangle.
Landing 3 Wilds in the 3 middle rows will trigger the Slippery Wild feature. While this feature is active the Wilds will remain on the grid, moving down one position each spin until they eventually fall off at the bottom.
Rather than triggering bonus spins, landing 3 Scatters triggers the Pick Bonus. When this happens, you’ll be asked to choose 1 of 3 pots of gold. You can either win an instant prize or you will be awarded 15 bonus spins.
One of the three jackpots can be won randomly, at any time as you play the main game.
Is this enough to get you to chase Paddy’s pot of gold with RealTime Gaming?
