Irish Gold is a 3-reel slots game that offers very little entertainment. There are no bonus features but there are Wilds and Scatters, which gives the game the edge over some of Play ‘n Go’s most basic games. Traditionalists might enjoy playing the game, but even those of us who like a no-nonsense slots game, where we actually understand what we’re winning and why we’ve won it can be treated to something that looks better and plays better than Irish Gold. You’re also much more likely to find a better house edge than the 5% that is on offer here.
