Irish Luck mobile slot is a 30 paylines slot game that has every cliché from the emerald isle across it’s five reels. It’s basic game play suits the smaller and shorter mobile phone journeys.
We will be the first to admit that we are not huge fans of the ‘Irish slot theme’. It’s been done, over done and generally not much better than on this Playtech mobile slot. This is in fact a very nice rendition of the Irish theme. The red head makes an appearance as the wild symbol. Leprechauns hide in golden pots. Rainbows fill the screen and clover leaves falls from above.
It’s all ever so pretty if we hadn’t seen it before. In fact, and this is not something we’ve said often, NextGen gaming do the theme and gameplay just a little bit more exciting in their Irish Eyes and Irish Eyes 2 mobile slots. The reels and wins just come more frequent and with more irish whimsy, than in Irish Luck slot by Playtech, which feels like a re-skinning of the slot Desert Treasures or Santa’s Surprise.
Free spins are the only bonus feature, which is the one redeeming aspect of this mobile slot. Most of the time you’ll probably walk away with a decent 10x to 30x your bet, but every once in a while you’ll hit an incredible multiplier of up to 15x which will make you gasp at the results. This however is by far the exception rather than the rule and the free spins don’t come often enough to break the tedium of the main game.
The lack of fun is no doubt not helped by the fact that we found this game to be a temperamental Android slot, lacking the reliability that is usually so common with Playtech slots. Even on iPads and iPhone casinos the bottom of the screen sometimes cuts off, making it impossible to see your balance.
So all in all, Irish Luck mobile slot is nice with a predictable if pretty theme, but it’s been done far better elsewhere.

Wild Symbol: The pretty red head on the reels is your wild symbol, replacing all other symbols except the pot of gold. She does come with a very welcomed x2 multiplier, and at times stacked, which we very much appreciate to lift the base game.
Gold Pot Free Spins Bonus Round: Get three or more scatters on the reels and you'll get the little leprechaun jumping out of it's pot of gold and taking you to a separate screen at the end of the rainbow. You'll start the simple click me game with 8 free games and x2 multiplier and you'll get to pick two more pots to get more free spins and multipliers.
You can potentially win up to 33 free spins with a 15x multiplier, but that's up there in the jackpot likelihood. Still a nice hope, and if hit, you'll be as merry as the little green man on your reels.
We wanted to like Irish Luck slot on mobile, but it just didn't excite us in the same way as so many of the other beautiful Playtech mobile slots available. When you compare it to the the truly Incredible Hulk or the fantastical Fantastic Four Marvel slots, Irish Luck mobile pales in comparison.
Even the graphically less impressive Mr Cashback has some exciting unique features that makes you forget that it's not visually very interesting.
It's not a terrible slot. But with so many mobile slots to choose from, it's certainly not at the top of our list.
