St Patrick’s Day has come and gone, but this Irish-themed slot is here to stay. Titled Shamrockers, this slot is filled with the usual Irish cliches – four-leaved clovers and lephrechauns. They’re not just any old Leprechauns though, these guys are rock-and-rollers. There are four band members in this Leprechaun band (a fiddler, a drummer, a guitarist and a singer); these symbols are stacked in every spin to create very desirable wins. Of course, there are free spins and wild symbols too. Read on to learn more about the Shamrockers in this review.

With the Shamrockers mobile slot, IGT has pretty much got all the basics perfect. For starters, this slot game accepts wagers from as small as 20p all the way to a staggering £400. Having said that, this game would be a perfect suit for players of all budgets. From our hours playing this game, we did realize that Shamrockers Mobile Slot favours players who wager more per spin as the payouts are more often massive than they are frequent.
This mobile slot features a 5 x 3 reel layout with the industry standard 20 paylines. Shamrockers being specially designed and engineered for St. Patricks day does sport the glorious Irish theme that fills the whole game up with rich leprechauns and Irish rock music. A pretty good combo, we’d say!
Of course by now you would have started to enjoy the great music, but the fun doesn’t stop there. The fun begins when all the leprechaun magic starts converting all your luck into cold hard cash! Although this game does not payout very frequently, it does shower you with massive payouts when you hit a winning symbol combo.

Before we dwell into the features of this game, it would be good to know that Shamrockers uses the Dynamic Stacks feature. While it sounds complicated, it really isn’t. It just means that you will have a great advantage when there are many of the same symbols in a reel. Payouts are also way higher than usual when the same symbols are stacked together in a reel.
The main feature in this game would be free spins bonus. Whilst free spins does not sound like the most interesting feature you have heard off, this feature does pay handsomely. To us, that is pretty much a whole new ball game. To trigger this feature, you will need to land at least three bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. When you successfully trigger this feature, you will be rewarded with four free spins.
For your amazement, you will be accompanied by a band member through every free spin! On your first free spin, you will dance along the fiddler, whereas for the second and the third spin, you will be accompanied by both the drummer and the guitarist.
As if that wasn’t cool enough, you will be entertained by the singer on your fourth free spin, and the best part of all you may be rewarded with the Encore symbol. The chances of you receiving the encore symbol is 1 out of 2, so it’s pretty high in our opinion. And as the name suggests, you would get an encore of another 4 free spins to play again!

To be frank, we were not too excited when we heard that IGT was going to release another Irish themed mobile slot, right after the release of the famous Megajackpots Isle O’Plenty, which also happens to feature magical leprechauns and Irish themed music.
Shamrockers features the Dynamic Stacks mechanism by IGT. This feature has the same symbol appearing in huge groups together in the same reel. I can’t decide whether the Dynamic Stacks pays handsomely or is merely a visual illusion.
Just because there are many similar symbols on the reels at the same time doesn’t mean that they land on the same payline and deliver rewards. Nevertheless, it’s definitely useful at keeping a player’s attention. My eyes are usually glued to the screen, checking for winning paylines after every round.
The Shamrockers is a high variance game, so don’t be disheartened when you’re stuck in a dry spell. With some patience, you’ll come across the VIP tickets at the end of the free spins and along with it, some mega-sized wins. It’s a fairly simple game that’s easy to pick up and its concept is novel enough to capture your attention for a few minutes. For other Irish themed slots, I recommend Mega Jackpots Isle O’Plenty.
