Slots

Slots are the most popular casino games at any land-based, online or mobile casino. They can be traced all the way back to the late 19th century with the first machine, the Liberty Bell designed by Charles Fey, consisting of three reels with ten symbols. The games have advanced tremendously since then and casinos today can offer hundreds of different titles with a huge range of game types, themes and features. Here, at Irish Luck, we offer a great range of slots games from some of the top software providers in the industry.

Video slots – Video slots are the most common type of slots game today and these have multiple paylines – most often 9, 10, 20, 25, 40 or 50, but you can even find games with up to 100 paylines. Today, many games have no paylines at all, but rather have ways to win. Most commonly they have 243 ways to win, but there are games with 1,024 ways to win. Players can activate more paylines when they place their bet. Video slots games also tend to have bonus features, with some including a wide range of features. Common bonus features available include wild symbols, scatter symbols, multipliers and jackpot symbols.

Progressive slots – Progressive slots are classic or video slots that have a progressive jackpot. These are jackpots that continue to grow with every bet placed by players, until they are won. They may be stand-alone progressives or they may be linked to other games in which case the jackpot can climb to life-changing amounts. The jackpots may be won randomly, by hitting a winning combination of five jackpot symbols or through a bonus feature game. Some games require you to be betting with the maximum number of coins to be eligible for the progressive jackpot. Once the jackpot has been won, it is reset.
