Irish Eyes 2 is the successor of the Irish Eyes slot by NextGen Gaming. The prequel has a much newer design than its predecessor, which directly becomes clear from the animations and the sound effects. There is, however, something Irish Eyes does have while Irish Eyes 2 does not: a bonus game. They have made use of a wild symbol, and the free spins are easier to unlock in Irish Eyes 2. This is because the scatter symbols in this forest no longer have to land on the reels in a certain order. The order isn’t important – wherever they land, they can lead you to free spins, where the larger wins are waiting for you!
How to play Irish Eyes 2?
Whilst Irish Eyes 2 is a more beautiful slot than its predecessor, to be fair, not much else has changed. The background of the game is now a forest, but the playing grid still contains five reels and three rows, and the number of standard symbols has also remained the same. The nine up to the Ace are used, and the Irish lady functions as the wild. The Lady can replace all other symbols, except the pot of gold, which functions as the scatter. And this scatter symbol can lead free spins!
Free spins on Irish Eyes 2
Remember how in Irish Eyes, you needed three scatters in a row to get you to the free spins? Well, guess what? Irish Eyes 2 does not have this requirement! The only prerequisite is the three scatters to land on your reels, and their position isn’t important. So, if you have three pots of gold on your reels, no matter their positions, you’ll advance to free spins, where your wins will run up even faster. This is both because of the multiplier and the fact that the spins are free!
With three times the scatter on your reels, you will receive 10 free spins, with four times the scatter you’ll get 15, and five times the scatter will earn you 20 free spins in Irish Eyes 2. While spinning for free, the bet per line and the number of active pay lines are the same as they were during the spin that led to the free spins. Luckily, while spinning for free, you can keep on unlocking free spins! And luckily, these free spins are pretty lucrative. What’s more, these free spins are so profitable that they can make us say that this entire slot is pretty lucrative. And that is in spite of the fact that the free spins are the only feature on Irish Eyes 2.
Pay lines and jackpot on Irish Eyes 2
Irish Eyes 2 does not have a jackpot, which is a little disappointing since the layout of this slot would lend itself perfectly to a jackpot, like a pot of gold for example. The slot is also equipped with the same number of pay lines as its predecessor, which is 25. If you’d like to play with fewer, you can adjust this number at the bottom of the slot, or by employing the numbers on either side of the slot. There’s also an autospin function, and a gamble function, which can be found to the left of the autospin. This gamble function allows you to continue gambling with the latest formed win. If you’d rather play this slot without music, you can turn it off in the lower-left corner of the slot by clicking the speaker icon.
