When I first heard about Playtech's Spud O'Reilly's Crops of Gold slot, I thought that one of the company's game designers was on drugs. Surely that's the only way someone could come up with a name like that for a video slot, right? Once I booted the game though, I decided to give Playtech a bit of slack, as the game seems to focus on an Irish potato farmer who's looking to make it big with his awesome potatoes... Come to think of it, someone definitely had to be high when they came up with the concept. Still, the game is a lot of fun and I recommend you check it out.
Spud O'Reilly's Crops of Gold is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot that takes place on an Irish farm, where you join Spud and his wife in an effort to craft the best potatoes in the world. The graphics here are bright and cheerful, and you'll find a mixture of unique and classic slot symbols on the reels (10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace). The farm symbols include potatoes, pitchforks, boots, pint of stout, horseshoes, Spud's wife, a tractor, a set of panties, a lamb, a shamrock, and Spud himself. The game itself also has a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 97.1%, which is higher than average for a slot of this style.
The game itself actually exceeded my expectations, as there's a lot of bonus features like free spins, wilds, scatters, and a Sheep Shearing Bonus, which lets you pick sheep to shave in exchange for large cash prizes. While I maintain the Playtech staff had to be inebriated in some way to come up with a name like this, the slot itself is a ton of fun and will maintain your interest for a long time if you give it a try.
