If you feel like it is time to change your gaming a bit, try some new titles and discover exciting new features then do not worry. Playtech, one of the leading developers of online casino games, regularly releases new games and some fantastic titles have just been released.
Ireland is a hugely popular theme for online slots, probably because the country is renowned for its lucky people. Playtech have a few slots set on the Emerald Isle and the latest to join the list is Gaelic Luck.
Gaelic Luck is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and up to 20 paylines. The reels are set in a simple frame against a background of lucky four-leaf clovers. The high value symbols are three different ‘lucky lasses’, one in green, one in blue and one in pink. The lower value symbols are the traditional playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
There is a big pot of gold wild symbol and in addition to substituting for all the other symbols, except the scatter and bonus, it is the slot’s most valuable symbol. The scatter symbol is the slot’s logo set against a rainbow, it offers scatter payouts of up to 50 times the total bet, and there is a four-leaf clover in a horseshoe bonus symbol.
If the bonus symbol lands anywhere on reels one and five simultaneously it triggers the Lucky Lasses Bonus game. First you will be asked to pick one of the three lasses and this will reveal how many free spins you have won. Next you need to pick from six clovers to reveal the payout multiplier. It is possible to win up to 20 free spins with a 10x multiplier. Furthermore, it is possible to win more free spins indefinitely by landing the bonus symbol on reels one and five again.
The slot has been designed to accommodate all sizes of budget. When playing with just one payline you can bet as little as £0.01 per spin. The great thing is that you will have the same chance of triggering the bonus features when playing with one payline as with all twenty active. Of course, it is possible to bet far more on the game and there is a maximum bet of £20 per spin.
As mentioned, the wild symbol is the most valuable and landing five of them across a payline will win you a massive 10,000x your line bet. The lass in green is the second most valuable symbol and she can payout up to 1,000x while the lasses in blue and pink can payout up to 500x and 400x respectively.
Gaelic Luck has a few more features to make gameplay more enjoyable. You can turn on ‘Turbo’ mode to speed up play and you can also make use of an ‘Auto Play’ feature that will keep the reels spinning for you.
While this isn’t he most feature packed slot, it is well designed and offers plenty to keep you engaged. Furthermore, with a bit of luck you could win a huge amount of money.
If you enjoy superhero themed slots then you will be pleased to hear that Playtech has a new release in its DC Comic series. The new slot is called Justice League, it is based upon the recent film of the same name and it is packed with features.
Justice League is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 40 fixed paylines. Behind the reels you can see a rocky landscape. The high value symbols are all superheroes including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash. The low value symbols are the various superhero’s logos, such as a bat and Superman’s ‘S’.
The slot’s wild symbol is the ‘JL’ logo and it can substitute for all the other symbols expect the scatter symbols. The scatter symbols are three different boxes coloured red, white and bronze. They can land on reels one, three and five and are the key to the main bonus feature.
On any spin you may be given a Super Hero Respin. A reel position is highlighted in a red frame and if a superhero symbol lands there it will be turned wild. You can then retrigger the feature up to five times and if you do it means that on the final spin all five superhero symbols will be wild and this should result in a huge win.
If the scatter symbols land on reels one, three and five simultaneously the Free Games begin. There are six different free spins modes, one for each superhero, and each time you trigger the feature you will unlock another mode with its own set of features:
- The Flash – 15 free spins during which superhero symbols will turn wild when they land in the feature frame.
- Cyborg – 12 free spins during which superheroes will turn wild when they land in a feature frame and an additional frame is added to the reels after a spin without a wild transformation.
- Aquaman – 10 spins during which each time a symbol lands in the feature frame all other instances of that symbol on the reels will turn wild.
- Wonder Woman – 7 spins with up to five feature frames added to the reels on each spin and each time a superhero lands in the frame all instances of that hero on the reels turn wild.
- Superman – 5 spins with a giant 2×2 feature frame on the reels with each spin. It will turn all superheroes that land in the frame wild.
- Batman – 2 spins during which if any superhero lands in the feature frame all the superhero symbols on the reels are turned wild.
Like the other DC Comic slots, Justice League is linked to the DC Super Heroes progressive jackpots. The jackpot game can begin on any spin but the more you bet the better the chances. In the game you need to reveal squares on a grid. Each square will turn a different colour and each colour represents one of the four jackpots. When you find three of the same colour you win the corresponding jackpot (Grand, Major, Minor or Mini).
The slot has a betting range of £0.40 up to £2,000 a spin so you can enjoy it on any sized budget and it offers a top payout of 750x for landing five wilds across a payline. Batman can payout up to 500x, Superman up to 400x, Wonder Woman up to 300x and Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash can all payout up to 150x.
Playtech is well aware that many players enjoy the more traditional games that are reminiscent of old-fashioned fruit machines. If you are one of these players then you will love the new release Stars Ablaze.

The feature is a simple multi-level picking game. In each level you need to pick one of the symbols to reveal a cash prize and advance to the next level. The game ends when you reveal ‘Collect’ or you win on level five.
All players can enjoy this slot thanks to its betting range of £0.05 up to £500 per spin. There is a huge top payout of 7,500x available if you can land five golden stars along a payline.
