Irish Eyes 2

Irish Eyes 2 is the sequel to one of the most popular NextGen Gaming online slots of all time – Irish Eyes. Compared to the original slot, the newer version uses slicker graphics and sound effects, extra paylines, and more free spins.

Plus, the leprechaun has left the building, leaving his coin-filled pot of gold in the tender care of the Celtic maiden who acts as the wild symbol. Yet, the gameplay remains refreshingly simple with just a wild symbol and a scatter that can trigger the feature game on offer. And, when you play the Irish Eyes 2 slot with 25p to £50 per spin (N.B., that's with all twenty-five paylines enabled), you'll be in with a chance of scoring a tasty five thousand times your bet!

Appearance and Sound Effects

Irish Eyes 2 was released several years after the original slot, and you can instantly tell how the technology has changed over time. For example, the graphics are far more detailed, and in place of the cartoon-like countryside that provided the background for its predecessor, you have a beautifully illustrated forest soaked in sunshine and the top of a rainbow which is just visible above the reels.

This time around, the symbols that you can use to create winning combos include a pipe, a Claddagh ring, a pot of gold, a four-leaf clover, a leprechaun's hat, and a beautiful female with flowing red hair and deep green eyes. Whenever you create a winning combination, Irish music starts to play and the symbols become animated.

Bonuses and Special Features

The red-haired woman is the wild symbol in Irish Eyes 2, and she substitutes for all symbols except the scatter when she can help to make a win.

The scatter is the pot of gold, and even though it awards an instant cash prize whenever it appears on the reels in two or more positions simultaneously, it also triggers the Free Games Feature when three are present on the screen. The number of free spins that you receive depends on the number of scatters which trigger the feature. Three, four, or five pots of gold give you ten, fifteen or twenty free spins respectively. Any prizes that you win while taking your free spins are tripled, and you can score extra free games by landing the scatter symbol three, four or five times.


Irish Eyes 2 uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty-five non-fixed paylines, and has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.044%. The game lets you create winning combinations using matching symbols in succession from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.

Our Verdict

Irish Eyes 2 is the epitome of the popular Irish slot genre, and you'll be jigging through fields of four-leaf clovers when you try it out at Samba Slots. With up to twenty free spins on offer in the re-triggerable Free Games Feature, and a wild symbol that can help you win pots of gold by replacing other key symbols, it's a hugely fun and simple slot that you'll want to play time and again.
