This slot has two main characters, a beautiful Irish princess and a cheerful mythical leprechaun. Themes and motifs of Ireland are seen throughout the slot from the dark green reels to the tranquil tune in the background which adds to the game’s Irish fairytale aesthetic. The princess symbol has been created with great attention to detail, and the other lower value symbols on the board, such as a pot of gold, shamrock and letters Q and J, are equally impressive and stay true to the Irish theme.
The number of paylines in the slot is fixed at 20, though a player can easily adjust their wager by moving the coin value. To prevent players having to manually spin the reels, the slot is complete with an auto spin button which activates 100 spins.

RTP (return to player)
Emerald Isle is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot with an RTP of 96.6%, which can be considered a slightly higher RTP rate than average. As with most casino games, 96.6% is the slot’s default RTP and this may be subject to change depending on the online casino it is featured in.
A rainbow is the scatter symbol of the game, if a player lands 3 or more rainbows, it will automatically trigger 10 extra spins. As you may expect from a NextGen slot, all wins during a free spin round are tripled and the free spin round can be re-triggered if 3 rainbows land once again.
A leprechaun bonus feature is triggered when a leprechaun lands on the fifth or first reel. During this exciting bonus feature, a player gets the chance to open wooden chests which will either reveal a multiplier or a mystery prize. Find two chests with the same prize and you’ll win both, plus any multipliers you have found along the way.
The gamble feature is present throughout the game and is a guessing game where a player must pick either the colour or the suit of a downward-facing card. If you pick correctly, your winnings from your last round will be doubled or quadrupled. If you pick incorrectly, however, you will lose all of your winnings from the previous round, so ensure you pick carefully!
