Travel to the Emerald Isle on the slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Well of Wishes is your traditional Irish-themed slot with all you can expect, lush greenery, 4-leaf clovers, rabbit’s feet and more. Plus, it has two features, a Lucky Coin collection that will then swap random symbols into wilds and a Lucky Spins round where the swapped symbols remain wild until the end. May the luck of the Irish be with you to score wins of up to 300 times your bet on a single spin.
Well of Wishes is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols or in combination with wild symbols on a line from left to right only. You can try your luck on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 40 credits per spin. The game has high variance with an RTP of 90.08% plus the share for the jackpot contributions, which puts the overall RTP to a rather low 95.08% (as seen at MeccaBingo and Grosvenor Casinos). Some casinos offer the game with an RTP of 95.66%, always check the helpfiles to confirm which version you will be playing.
A sea of 4-leaf clovers is the background of an intricate game window which is encased with a golden-ornamented frame. Traditional Irish lucky symbols such as the rabbit’s foot and horseshoes populate the reels. While Irish-themed slots usually come with an upbeat soundtrack, this slot features a slow sentimental Irish tune that you usually hear in epic historical movies.
Open the game to find the card royals from 10 through to A at the low end of the paytable, awarding 1.6x to 2.5x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by 4-leaf clovers, horseshoes, coin sachets and the fabled rabbit’s foot. Hit five on a line to win 6.5x to 30x your stake. The Lucky Coins perform double duty as a collectable item and wild symbol. They have the same payouts as the rabbit’s foot. An icon marked with Lucky Spins acts as the scatter.
The Irish theme of this slot stretches as far as the features. Lucky Coins and Lucky Spins are the keys to hitting big and mega wins on Well of Wishes. While the first triggers a symbol swap into wilds just for the current spin, the second will keep the swapped symbols as wilds for the duration of the round.
The first feature you will notice is a progress bar next to a well at the top of the game window. It collects the Lucky Coins which may land randomly on any spin. While the coins act as a wild for the current spin, it will be added to the progress bar. Once a total of five coins are collected, they are thrown into the Well of Wishes, granting you one wish which will turn a random symbol in view into wilds. The well may have a generous moment and swap all occurrences of a second random symbol type for wilds, providing the extra potential to score a big win.
Hit three Lucky Spins scatters anywhere on the reels to trigger 10 free spins. A respin is awarded if you land only one or two scatters for another chance for the missing scatter to appear. During the feature, all symbols that were turned wild by the Well of Wishes will remain wild for the remaining free spins. Collecting five lucky coins will also award extra free spins based on the number of scatters that triggered the feature.
Last but not least are the three progressive jackpots – Must-Go, Daily Jackpot, King Jackpot. The Daily Jackpot is time-limited and will trigger guaranteed before a set time while the Must-Go Jackpot is a ceiling jackpot that will trigger guaranteed before the set threshold is reached. The final and most desirable is the King Jackpot which is unlimited and can trigger at any time.
The chances of winning a jackpot are relative to your bet size. You will need to hit three jackpot symbols anywhere on the reels in one spin to start off the random jackpot game. The selector will jump between the three jackpots and will award the one which stays highlighted at the end.
Well, this feels a little like a summer game since the maximum you can win on a single spin is 300x your bet which is unusually low for a Red Tiger Gaming slot. Hardcore slotters will most probably give it a miss but I can see recreational players and jackpot chasers being attracted to the colourful design, the sentimental Irish soundtrack and progressive jackpots.
