Are you ready to test your luck with an exciting new online slot offering? Shamrock Holmes Megaways from developer All41 Studios is set to be released on Jan. 5, 2021 and will be offering players six reels, which means there is plenty of opportunity to win. This will be the first Megaways powered slot game that will be offered through the Microgaming platform, and because of that, it is generating lots of buzz and excitement in advance. But is it worthy of all that buzz? Let’s take a closer look at this new release.
Just like with most online slot machines, it's all about the prizes with this game Shamrock Holmes as that tends to be the draw for many players. Here you'll be able to place a bet from $0.20 to $20, whatever strikes your fancy, and there is a maximum payout of 28,000 times. This one is not a progressive jackpot, which is to the dismay of some, but with an RTP of 96.44% it is classified as above average payout. So sure, you may not win often, but when you do it's more likely to be a decent payout.
Then there is gameplay, which also has to be exceptional in order to draw players in and keep them coming back for more. The theme is evident from the moment you enter into the game - it's all about the luck of the Irish here, so you'll see plenty of jewel tones of green, gold, purple, and red. While it's not exactly unique, it has done really well and definitely is eye-catching.
Just as you would expect from an Irish-themed game you'll find images of clovers, leprechauns, flowers, royals, fairies, coins, and scatters here. The background itself is meant to be an enchanted forest in the ‘rolling hills of Ireland’. It’s got a cute and whimsical vibe to it that is carried throughout.
Gameplay is also smooth and intuitive, and it won't take you long to figure it out this one. This makes it inviting to beginners as well as advanced players.
Then we've got a collection of standout features that are meant to make Shamrock Holmes Megaways stand out within the competition. One of the more notable features is the fact that you are playing with a whopping 117,649 ways to win, which is really quite shocking. There is a horizontal wheel that can be found on the top of the middle four columns, which you'll want to keep your eye on. This is the only place where the wilds will pop up, so it makes the game a bit more exciting.
Other features include the ability to form combos, which means three or more of any one symbol, and there are scatters, free spins, and multipliers. Some of these can also be retriggered, creating bigger winnings.
At the very least, this new offering is worth a look and a play, as you’ll see for yourself if you’ve got the luck of the Irish on your side.
