How does the Slots O’ Gold mobile slot stand out from the other Megaways games? By not giving you a free spins bonus. This, as we will explain, is a mistake.
Hello, old Irish themed slot game. We are so familiar with it by now, we know what we will get; pots of gold, rainbows, little green hats, and lucky symbols.
But it does have Megaways, expanding wilds and re-spin symbols. So you know that’s worth looking into.
In a Megaways slot, wins are awarded when symbols are adjacent to each other left to right, and right to left. Making this a pay both ways slot game.
Which gives this Slots O’ Gold slot only 15,625 ways to win with 6 reels, wild symbols and lots of respin and smaller wins.
So in a way, this should be superior to the iconic Bonanza 117,649 Megaways game, despite having fewer ways to win overall. But it feels a little empty.
The fun of the Megaways was seeing this extreme amount of symbols, some stacked, some not, and try and figure out the madness on screen.
This is the only real feature in this Megaways slot game.
Granted, you do get stacks of Mystery symbols from time to time, but they rarely make it worth your while as most of the symbols here come stacked anyway.
So you have the wild, which expands to cover the reel. It then gives you a random multiplier from 2x to 5x and then, you get a re-spin of the other reels.
You know, how you do it in the Wild 3 phone slot, except you get more action and more fun?
The fact this Slots O’ Gold is a jackpot casino game redeems it a little bit, and it’s not bad per se. We just don’t think you can play it for very long.

Expanding Wilds and Re-spins: The Leprechaun is the wild symbol and when it lands, covers the whole reel. He will then give you a re-spin of the reels as well as a random multiplier up to 5x.
If you catch another wild, you'll get another re-spin with all wilds staying on screen.
Mystery Symbols: The Rainbow Gold symbols on screen will all turn to reveal any one of the other symbols.
How to win the slot Jackpot: Get 5 jackpot symbols in the centre of the each of the 6 reels, and you'll enter a jackpot game where you might win one of 3 jackpots.
It's a network jackpot with other games, so a spin on this game won't necessarily be the one that breaks the pot.
We gave this Slots O Gold Megaways slot review 2 stars because this isn't a bad game.
It's got some big jackpots, it's even got some decent wins with all those Megaways and stacked symbols.
But the re-spins don't come often enough, the mystery symbols are barely there, and the multiplier rarely hit the spot.
We can see how, if you get a big win in the first 10/20 spins you'll be tempted to keep playing. But we can't recommend it based just on the luck of the day, because if you don't this can feel like a very long fairly boring game.
Play the Vikings Unleashed Megaways by Blueprint instead, it's far more fun.
