If you thought U2 was the biggest rock band to come out of Ireland, then you haven't taken in the Shamrockers slot from IGT. Playing on all the stereotypes that we see from Britain's little brother, the game has a fun presentation and excellent bonus features to boot, which may leave you walking away feeling like a rock star!
Shamrockers is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot set in the rolling hills of Ireland. The game's symbols include a lively lot of leprechauns that are ready to rock your ears off, including a red bearded violin player, female flute tooter, a shredding guitar dude, and a complete ginger who blasts out the vocals. These are joined by standard slot symbols (10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace) as well as a wild clover and a golden VIP ticket.
Feature wise, the game includes wild symbols, scatters, free spins, and win multipliers that come about during the spins bonus. The free spins round is triggered when you manage to hit three scatter symbols on the three centre-most reels. This grants you 2x your total bet and 4 free spins with one of the leprechaun band members randomly chosen to be stacked on the reels to increase your chances of hitting a win with that symbol. The free spins round can be re-triggered if you land an encore symbol on the fifth reel during the last free spin.
I have to say that while I found the idea of Shamrockers to be a funny twist on the well and truly played out leprechaun theme, the game itself was quite lame. The slot is sorely lacking in features, and you can tell that it just doesn't live up to the standard that IGT has established with their recent online slot releases. I'd only recommend this game to you if you're really into rock and/or leprechauns and all things Irish. There just isn't enough there to justify playing this game for real money, but if you want to give it a test, we're more than happy to offer this free play version for you to try out.
