Luck O' the Irish Fortune Spins 2 is the second release from the Fortune Spins collection released via the respected slot developers Blueprint Gaming. The first instalment was a big hit with players, so the second in the series has a lot to live up to, which is going to be challenging based on how popular Irish-themed games are, but this is Blueprint Gaming we're talking about.
The second trip to the Emerald Isle sees Blueprint Gaming produce a slot with the standard set-up of five reels and twenty paylines, and the top prize of 10,000x the stake, a stake that can be anywhere between 0.10 and 100.00, is sure to pique the interest of a lot of slot players, regardless of how common the theme is.
There are also a couple of fun features for players to enjoy in Luck o’ the Irish Fortune Spins 2, which worked well in the original, and Blueprint Gaming take this approach again, which is not to overcomplicate things but not to make them too basic either. Blueprint Gaming have also brought us Eye of Horus Fortune, Fishin' Frenzy Megaways and The Goonies which you can try out at Gala Bingo.
What you’re not going to get with Irish-themed slots is a move away from the traditional, and that’s because players spinning the reels are chasing that authenticity. After all, Irish games have a specific look, feel and sound to them. And Blueprint Gaming retain that authenticity which is great to see.
Low-paying royals, 10-A, are the first symbols to be aware of in Luck o’ the Irish Fortune Spins 2, and five of a kind can pay up to 10x the stake, which isn’t bad. The game’s premium symbols are three different types of gems – green, blue and red, and a pot of gold, with returns of up to 25x possible. There are also a couple of special icons, which we will come onto next.
The first feature is a hold-and-win style game called Money Spins. A coin scatter anywhere on the grid will trigger the bonus round; with the screen, the action plays out on another screen, where only coins and blanks will appear. Players will have three spins, and the coins will have cash values attached, with the round over when either the spins run out, or the screen is full of coins.
The second feature is Fortune Spins, and players will notice a Fortune Spins button to the left of the game area. Players can trigger this feature at any time, and when they do, they will move to a screen where there are four sets of reels with four spins to play. During the action, the Mirror Logo icon will transform into a matching symbol when it lands, and Mystery Symbols can also have an impact.
Luck O' the Irish Fortune Spins 2 is a fantastic second instalment in the Fortune Spins series by Blueprint Gaming, and again they do what's needed to ensure this isn't another Irish-themed slot that will get lost amongst the crowd. The 10,000x top prize is great, but the two features are what stands out.
