Shamrock n roll is a classic Irish themed slot. With the obligatory leprechaun peering in at the end of the screen, to the backdrop of a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow in the background. It’s certainly Irish themed but is it actually any good? This one is typical of the majority of nektan slots, as it doesn’t have any video bonus rounds. What you get here is a wild symbol and free spins bonus round. It was originally developed in HTML5 for mobile devices but later amended so it will also work on a desktop. I tested shamrock n roll on both a mobile and desktop and it is much better to play on your mobile if I’m honest. The lack of features make this a slot to play on the fly rather than sat at your computer desk. I played it for quite a while to see how it paid out and it wasn’t too bad. I found the wild symbol popped up on a regular basis, yet found the free spins hardly appeared at all.
Shamrock n roll is a 5×3 25 line slot. The minimum stake is 0.01p making 25 lines just 0.25p which is ideal for those slots players on a tighter budget than most. The maximum stake per line is £1 which means you can bet up to £25 if you wanted to. It would only be worth betting this amount if the free spins appeared regularly, which they didn’t when I played it.
Unsurprisingly the wild symbol is a little leprechaun and will complete winnings lines, but won’t work for completing the free spins symbol. To trigger the free spins round you’ll need a minimum of 3 spin symbols – in this case a horseshoe. Once triggered you’ll get 15, 25 or 50 free spins depending on whether you get 3, 4 or 5 free spin symbols appear. 50 free spins is very generous in anyone’s books and would definitely trigger a big win. But when I played shamrock n roll I never received more than 15 free spins.
To summarise this shamrock n roll slot review. If ever a game was developed to recognise a stereo type then this is it. If you’re looking for bonus round games then you’ll end up disappointed. To me, this is about spinning a few reels while out and about or if the wife is watching eastenders. Its more of a time filler than anything else.
