Scratch Irish Eyes 2 Symbols
We did mention that the red-haired Irish woman is a novel touch to this game. But behind her, the other symbols that are part of this game are as Irish as they come. Apart from these Irish icons, the look and feel of this game are also Irish. The lucky Irish is a constant background, and a lilting Irish tune plays in the background when you play. The Leprechaun’s Wood design forms a backdrop from the game. These are some of the Irish imagery that you get in the game’s symbols:
- Gold ring – payout 1000 coins
- Leprechaun’s green hat – payout 750 coins
- Leprechaun’s Pipe – payout 400 coins
- Four Leaf Clover – payout 400 coins
- Playing card – lower value symbols which provide 100 to 200 coins
Apart from these regular symbols, you need to watch out for 2 special symbols. We already spoke about the beautiful lady with flaming red hair. Regular players would also recognize her from the original Scratch Irish Eyes game. She is the Wild symbol for this game. This symbol can replace any other symbol (except the Scatter).
The Wild has lucrative payouts which are listed below:
- 1 Wild – 2 coins
- 2 Wilds – 10 coins
- 3 Wilds – 200 coins
- 4 Wilds – 1000 coins
- 5 Wilds – 5000 coins
The second special symbol of Scratch Irish Eyes 2 is the Scratch, obviously. Irish folklore often speaks of a rainbow and a pot of gold at the end of it. This pot of gold is the Scatter symbol for this game. Instead of left to right, it will payout in all possible directions on a payline. This symbol triggers some special rounds. Additionally, it also has rewards by itself, depending on how many you land:
- 2 Scatters – 2x rewards
- 3 Scatters – 4x rewards
- 4 Scatters – 15x rewards
- 5 Scatters – 100x rewards
Scratch Irish Eyes 2 Bonus
As we said earlier, the Scatter symbol also triggers free spins for you. For this to happen, you need to land at least 3 Scatters or more.
Here is the list of free spins that the pot of gold brings you:
- 3 Scatters – 10 free spins
- 4 Scatters – 15 free spins
- 5 Scatters – 20 free spins
This is not all. The Scatter symbol can really become a pot of gold for you. All the wins you score during these free spins would get a 3x multiplier too. If you want more, there is more!! These free spins can also be reactivated by you. Every win during these reactivated free spin rounds would be multiplied by the bet that activated the bonus feature.
There is a Gamble option you can choose too. You could take your money and leave when you win. Or you could choose to continue with the Gamble feature. You are shown a turned-down card and need to choose between black and red. The right choice doubles your wins straight. If you can also guess the suit right, your wins are quadrupled. You lose everything you had won if you guess wrongly. This can be tried by you a maximum of 5 times.
All we can say is we have seen scores of Irish games, but this is one of our most memorable Irish themed ones. This slot is yet another winner from NextGen Gaming which you should try if you haven’t already.
