Review and recommendations by the testing team
Golden Shamrock is a classic online slot from Netent, with rather old graphics and game play.
- In the main game, the slot often gives out winning combinations of 0.5x – 3x total bets, due to the expanding wild symbol. The slot triggers bigger winnings, but not often. It can trigger a combination with a win of more than 100x bets, and in theory, you can get a combination with a payout of 300x bets, but during testing, the maximum winning value in the main game was 45x bets.
- The slot very often triggers the free spins feature. In one testing sessions for 200 spins, we have triggered the free spins feature 8 times. While the slot often re-triggers the free spins. During testing, it was possible to get 4 scatters (and to re-trigger the feature). Wins during free spins are not big. Only once was it possible to get a total winning of 50x total bets, and all the others ranged from 15x to 40x total bets. Due to the active multiplier, there is the possibility to get a win of more than 500x total bets, but this is quite rare for this slot.
- Given the behavior of the slot, the free spins feature triggering frequency, and also the winning combination's appearance frequency and their size, we can say that the slot is suitable for games with bonus funds and fulfilling the wagering requirement, in most cases is not difficult.
