There is a lot of information given about Stacks O’ Gold Slots in the introduction. It tells you that The Stacks O’ Gold symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 will trigger free spins; that the Golden Wild Stacks feature can turn any of reels 1, 3, and 5 into Wilds; and that you can collect Wild Pots during the free spins round to trigger the sticky stacked Wild reels. And so here we go, as this game promises to be lucrative and loads of fun to play. The background is set in beautiful landscape with a home on the left, and a rainbow that seems to begin with the Pot of Gold to the right. Obviously, this Irish theme-based slot is beautifully executed as well.
Just as my review of Joker Stacks Slots revealed a 3x4x3x4x3 reels, the same is true of Stacks O’ Gold Slots. Only in this game there are 34 pay lines. As I mentioned in the former slot, concentrate on just 5 reels across and you will have no problem playing this slot game. The coin value of this slot game is 1.00 Euro per line with a max bet of 20 Euro. You can access the pay table by clicking on the small i at the bottom of the slot. The symbols in this game are wonderful, and include The Stacks O’ Gold Logo which acts as the Bonus symbol; the Wild symbol that will create winning combinations; and the highest paying symbol the Golden 4-Leaf Clover which will pay out 200 coins if you get all five.
When you get the Bonus symbol on reels 1, 3, and 5 you will win 15 free spins. The Golden Wild is the Pot of Gold and will only appear during the free spins round.
During the free spins round, collect 6 Wilds from any reel to change reel 1 into a sticky stacked wild for the remainder of the game. Two additional free spins will be added. If you collect another 10 Wilds from reels 2 and 5, reel 3 will change into a sticky stacked wild for the remainder of the round. Two additional free spins will be awarded. Collect another 10 Wilds from reels 2, 4, and 5, and reel 5 will become a sticky stacked wild for the remainder of the round. Another one free spin will be added. If you find a Golden Wild Pot during the free spins round, you will immediately advance to the next checkpoint.
The stacked wilds will randomly appear at the beginning of any spin. Any of reels 1, 3, and 5 will turn into fully stacked wild reels for that spin.
On my third spin I won 15 free spins. Each time a Pot of Gold appeared on the reels, the coins went into the Pot of gold under the first reel. When that was full, it continued to send coins to the Pot of Gold under the 3rd reel, and the Pot of Gold under 5th reel remained empty. I won a total of 625 coins. The Wild on the first reel remained there until after the free spin round ended. The second time I hit the free spins round, I won 701 coins. I also noticed that each pot of gold requires 10 coins before it moves on to the second and third pots. This is a wonderful game, and although the payouts are low, the free spins round is quite enjoyable.
