Gaelic Gold is a March 2020 Irish folklore-inspired video slot developed by Nolimit City. Themes: leprechauns, clovers, mythology, gold, playing card values, good luck, and fairyland. Other luck-themed slots from Nolimit include Mayan Magic Wildfire (June 2019) and Coins of Fortune (June 2018). Gaelic Gold’s rival video slots include Gaelic Luck (November 2017) from Playtech, Gaelic Warriors (May 2015) from Casino Technology, and Celtic (December 2016) from MGA.
The slot name “Gaelic Gold” is partly derived from the adjective “Gaelic”, a collective term for a Celtic culture and a language variant of the Goidelic language family. It is also named after the figurative content in the pot of gold. All symbols require three winning combinations.
Gaelic Gold Game Characteristics
Gaelic Gold has a translucent and partitioned 3X3 grid, with leafy twinning vines on its golden frame. There are two batches of fixed paylines, eleven symbols, 25 total bets, nudged wilds, progressive win multipliers, free spins, up to 25 extra free spins, and self-adjusting regularly payouts from $0.05 to $1500.
These are the Gaelic Gold’s four special features as showed on the starting page: Bonus Rainbow Spins, xNudge Wild, Nolimit Bonus, and Nolimit Winners.
Gaelic Gold has two special symbols and nine ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the free spins-unlocking feature is a golden brown “bonus” pot of gold overflowing with golden yellow coins; and the wild-and-substitute is a red-haired “wild” leprechaun who is dressed in green and tipping his hat.
Ordinary symbols: a sparkling golden four-leaf clover; a starry golden brown horse shoe; a foamy golden brown beer mug on green four-leaf clovers; a green-and-purple leprechaun’s shoe, with golden buckle and sole; a clover-embedded and golden-banded green leprechaun’s hat; and fancy clover-embedded brown card values A, K, Q, and J.
The Gaelic Gold bet sizes: $0.05 (minimum total bet), $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.40, $0.50, $0.60, $0.70, $0.80, $0.90, $1.00, $1.50, $2.00, $2.50, $3.00, $5.00, $7.00, $10.00, $15.00, $20.00, $25.00, $40.00, $60.00, $80.00, and $100.00 (maximum bet size).
For example: betting $100.00 offers these Gaelic Gold payouts for three winning combinations. The “wild” leprechaun, or the golden clover pays $1500.00. Horse shoe pays $1000.00. Beer mug pays $600.00. Leprechaun’s shoe pays $400.00. Leprechaun’s hat pays $200.00. A, or K, or Q, or J pays $100.00.
Three stacked “wild” leprechauns prompt the wilds to start nudging, thereby progressively increasing the wild multipliers from X1; one nudge has X1 win multiplier, two nudges have X2 win multiplier, and three nudges have X3 win multipliers. However, during the rainbow spins, the players can even get X5 win multipliers for each selected coin.
The pot of gold can appear at the center of reel two, thereby giving at least five free spins and pick-and-win modifiers. Played using nine fixed paylines, the rainbow lines have nine golden coins that players choose from in order to get more rainbow lines and as much as 25 extra spins. Gaelic Gold’s non-progressive jackpot is X9837, which ($100X9837) is theoretically $983700.00.
The good game software features include: game history for the past six months, user guide, game replay, turbo, and 10-1000 autospins with customizable limits. The ambient background consists of flute music and twittering birds. The exciting 3D graphics include twinkling symbols, dolly zoom, gushing clovers, glittering rainbow, dispersing rain clouds, drizzle, and raindrops rippling the surging river system that meanders through the interlocking spurs all over the rolling hills.
