Awake a child within and get down the chase for the golden pot at the end of the rainbow with NextGen’s latest slot called Emerald Isle. It is one of those good old Irish myth-themed games which will have you join Leprechauns in magical forests of Ireland for a dream-like adventure.
With pot of gold at stake, these games have enjoyed huge popularity over the last few years and NextGen have decided to have a go at breathing life back into one of their old versions. Same title, same subject but improved visuals, prizes and rewards – that what Emerald Isle is all about.
What We Love
Emerald Isle refurbished boasts plenty of great colours and graphical ideas that are bound to have great appeal to players.
NextGen have put a lot of effort to make their old-fashioned version look great in a modern and contemporary fashion and they can be applauded for 3D animations that are a perfect tribute to the theme involved in this game. Soundtrack is also one of the high points of this game as music is non-intrusive and a fitting match for an Irish game.
Features, however, are the main attraction is this video slot and their classic approach is the biggest attribute here. NextGen decided to go with the original gameplay, which will prove to be a huge success. There is a Bonus round during which you will be prompted to match two corresponding prizes, while there is also a re-triggering Free Spins feature with up to 20 spins available and 3x multiplier as well.
One of the features that we are most impressed with is the Gamble option. We simply love it and we also love every game that has it. What it does is that it helps you achieve bigger wins – double and quadruple the amount – when those from base game are not up to your satisfaction. Guessing colour or suit of a hidden card is a dance with the Lady Luck which adds to the overall excitement. Dynamics of the game are fairly straightforward and simple, but it is in no way a flaw to this game.
What We Do Not Like
We have to be honest here since that’s what these articles are for in the first place. We are not the biggest fans of the theme involved. Irish myth of the lost golden pot at the end of the rainbow was hugely popular a few years ago, and developers raced against each other to see who will develop the best one thus over-exploiting the subject.
Known as the innovators and frontrunners in the business, NextGen Gaming should have passed the opportunity to jump on the Irish bandwagon once more and, for instance, create a completely new game.
Personal preferences aside, Emerald Isle is a good game. Though we are not big fans of the title, we will not be biased in our conclusion and it is only fair to say that the Emerald Isle is game filled with classic slot features – such as Bonus triggering Wilds, Rewarding Scatters, Free Spins and prize multipliers.
There is hardly more you can ask for from a slot game, especially a classic one which is being presented as a repolished version years after the original. NextGen have made their new game available for desktop, tablet and mobile, so it is good to know that you can all enjoy it while on the go as well.
