IGT are known for their great progressive jackpot slots. Cleopatra and Siberian Storm are among their biggest progressive slots clocking in with jackpots hitting tens of thousands of pounds regularly.
The point being, the jackpots IGT have already come up with are fun to play, rewarding and incredibly popular. So it's good new that they're set to release their new progressive slot, Isle O' Plenty, in February 2016. However, with such a strong jackpot slot history, can Isle O' Plenty stand up to its predecessors and what does it bring to the jackpot slot scene.
Slots O' Plenty General Overview
- Irish themed progressive slot
- 5×3 reel layout with 40 paylines
- The price of entry is 60p per spin
- Available for desktop, mobile and tablet devices
- Wild Rush feature and bonus free spins mode
- Leprechaun magic wild rush bonus adds between 1 – 4 wild symbols on spins
How To Win The Jackpot
The method of winning the jackpot is simple, from a purely explanatory view point at the very least. You have to land 4 Mega Jackpots symbols in the middle column of the base game, during the bonus feature or win a behind the scenes Second Chance.
Free Spins Mode
The free spins mode is pretty iconic at this point when it comes to slots, so it would be strange if the feature wasn't included in some form or another. Free spins are unlocked by spinning 2 or more lighthouse bonus symbols
You can win up to 24 free spins, the number of which appears to be activated randomly, although playing the slot may reveal otherwise. Free spins symbols can be spun during the free spins bonus round itself, leading to a possible total of 240 free spins.
That's a huge return by itself. But it gets better since all bonus features are also active in free spins mode. You can unlock all the bonus features that are available during regular slot play. You can receive Mega Jackpot symbols on every spin, as well as Leprechaun magic wild bonuses.
Wild Rush Feature
The other key bonus feature, that we mentioned above is the Wild rush feature, known as Leprechaun Magic. This feature kicks in as soon as you obtain 1 wild symbol. Once you receive a single wild, then stacks of wilds are created.
This cause wilds to spread downwards throughout the reel, which increases your chances to make much larger wins. Because the wilds expand downwards, the hope is that you can receive wilds at the top of the slot, allowing you to get entire wild reels, from a single wild alone.
The feature is available during free spins mode, so if these features start to stack up together, it could lead to a very rewarding slot. We have no information on the RTP or the regularity of these features, so we'll have to wait until the slot drops before we find out if these features are worth the price of entry.
Isles O' Plenty Slot – February 2016
It's not long until the latest of IGT's progressive slots drop. It's close to the release date and yet we still have very little information about it. We still don't know how frequent its features work within the game, nor do we even know what the slot looks like. All these factors could be the thing to make or break the slot, in spite of the potential jackpot.
However, on paper, it sounds promising. A free spins mode and a wild feature are pretty simple additions, but if they can combine to create a chaotic and rewarding slot, it could be something to look forward to.
Plenty O' Isles slot will be released in February 2016 and will be available at IGT Mega Jackpot casinos like Paddy Power.
