Paddy's Lucky Forest Slots

The mere mention of the name Paddy made us think of Irish good fortune. That idea was borne out further when we saw the title for this new slot game - Paddy's Lucky Forest. The logo also features pots of gold, a rainbow, and a couple fairies. That should give you a fair idea of what might await you if you play this slot game. Let's see how much you may have correctly guessed!

Who has come up with this slot game?

The new title is another in the latest list of releases to come from RTG. They're formally known as Realtime Gaming.

Does it include a practice version?

Yes, all modern RTG titles include a demo, so we have no reason to suspect this one will be any different. Indeed, most of their older games are free to try too.

They've gone for an obvious theme here

St Patrick's Day is just around the corner at the time of writing this, so RTG is going to release Paddy's Lucky Forest in time for that. And it looks as if we have all the trappings of the usual luck-filled theme here too.

A colorful design lies in store for us

Before we even enter the forest, we see a colorful logo welcoming us to the game. Flying golden horseshoes (duck!), colored gems, and a golden title - all these surround Paddy the leprechaun and those two fairies, ready to welcome you to the game.

How to play Paddy's Lucky Forest slots

Right - let's see what's in store for us here. We get a five-reel layout to play on, but the reels give us something different to look at. They have a 3-4-5-4-3 format, with a flat bottom and steps up to the highest reel in the middle. We also have three jackpots available - the mini, minor, and major jackpots. These sit just above the first reel, so you can always see them there. These all have random triggers and therefore they can drop at the end of any paid spin.

Right - now onto the special symbols. They say the four-leaf clover is lucky, and you might well agree with that when you realize it is the wild symbol. Pots of gold are ideal to search for too, and in this game they act as the scatter symbols.

How many paylines does the slot have?

None - the game works on way wins instead, and the format means we have 720 potential prize-winning ways to watch out for.

Choose your bets before you play

You can do this in the demo game first, so you can see the complete set of values available. With the up and down buttons on the right of the fifth reel, you can adjust your wager to suit your budget.

Read through the paytable before you begin

There are some fascinating features in Paddy's Lucky Forest, so before you step into the trees, make sure you check over the paytable. It's hidden behind the three lines on top of the control panel on the right of the screen.

Are there any bonus features inside this forest?

Yes, there are, and you can look forward to the Slippery Wild feature occurring whenever a wild pops up on any of the middle three reels. When this happens, the wild stays on the screen. Every subsequent spin sees the wild (or wilds, if more than one appeared) slip one position lower on its reel. This continues until the wild slips out of sight off the bottom of that reel. We saw a video example of this with three wilds on those middle reels. Two disappeared before the other one because they were in lower positions to start with. However, they all led to some cool prizes before they vanished.

The other wonderful thing about this feature is that it happens whenever a wild appears on those three reels. This could be in the base game or during the free spins. And we'll get to those next.

How to receive some free spins

Paddy's Lucky Forest uses the same scatter trigger as always for this round. The scatters appear on the middle three (largest) reels of the game. You need three to unlock the Pick Bonus.

Paddy the leprechaun then appears with three pots of gold. You are prompted to pick one of them. There are three things to look for - free spins (a maximum of 15), an instant coin win worth up to 50x your triggering wager, or another pick. This means you could net some free games and a cash prize.

You can also net more free spins during the first lot if you get them. This is done by getting more scatters to earn up to 10 additional spins each time the trigger appears.

No RTP value has been announced

This is quite usual for Realtime Gaming slots, so we do not expect this to change or to find out a firm value anytime soon.

Our rating for the new Paddy's Lucky Forest game

We await the demo to find out just how promising this game is, but we are optimistic about this one. We're rating it at eight points out of 10 just now, thanks to those slippery wilds and the free spins and prize potential.

Would-be jackpot winners… how long before someone picks one up?

That's the major question, and we're looking forward to finding out about some jackpot news to bring you soon. As this game is new to the online casinos, we wonder how long it might take to find our first jackpot winner?

This is the ideal way to work out how much Paddy's Lucky Forest can offer you. Make sure you are ready to make the most of your demo time to see if the real thing might beckon…
