We’ll show you how to play the latest slot releases before you get dressed up for St Patrick’s Day.
Book of Books – Peter & Sons
Peter & Sons’ new slot features a 5×3 reel layout with 10 paylines. The maximum win is x10,000 and the title was inspired by Monty Python’s The Holy Grail. The RTP for this mediaeval game is 96.1 percent.
Stuart McCarthy is Head of Product & Programmes at Yggdrasil. He stated that “Book of Books” was a game we have been eager to release for some time. The title is packed with engaging features and incorporates a classic mechanic into the Peter & Sons art style.
“We are thrilled that the YG Masters continues to foster excellent game development. This is yet another shining example.”
The number of scatters required to activate the bonus game mode will determine the size of the reels.
Three scatters will grant seven free spins on the 5×3 standard reel set with 10 paylines. Four scatters will give you the feature with a 5×4 reel setup with 20-paylines.
Players who land five scatters in order to activate the game mode will receive free spins on a 5×5 reel set of 40-paylines.
One random paytable symbol will be chosen at the start of the bonus game mode to be increased for the duration of the free spinnings. This fills entire reels and increases each spin’s potential win potential.
Two scatters will be awarded for each spin in the base game. These power-ups can be used to activate the free spins mode. These power-ups can be used to get additional spins, expanding symbols and multipliers of x1 and x2 for expanding symbols.
Yann Batista is the Business Development Manager at Peter & Sons. He said: “Working with the YG Masters initiative lets us focus on creating amazing gaming experiences. Book of Books, which is a fun spin on the popular ‘Book of,’ game style, allows us to create incredible gaming experiences. We strive to create games that place players first and this game will prove to be another high-performing one in our portfolio.

Brazil flags show the scatter symbol for Hot Rio Nights. If three or more scatter symbols appear on the same reel, they will appear in stacks of three on one reel. This triggers the free spins feature.
Players will be prompted to choose from five different features as the free spins feature starts. Each feature determines which paytable symbol will appear on the reel set during the game mode.
If there are three, four, or five scatter stacks on the reels, you can select the wild to expand. This will give you six, nine, or twelve free spins.
The highest-value purple carnival dancer symbols give you eight, 12, or 16 spins. The second-highest red dancer symbol gives you 10, 15, or 20 spins.
Players who choose the third highest value green dancer will get 12, 18, or 24 free spins depending on how many scatters they land to activate the game mode.
A mystery feature can be selected by players, which could award up to six or 24 free spins depending on the random symbol chosen from the options.
Leprechaun’s Heist – Blue Guru Games
Blue Guru Games has a slot that celebrates St Patrick’s Day with an Irish-themed theme. It features a 5×5 reel, scatter-pays slot and a maximum win up to 6,706 for players stake. This game offers a high level of volatility and an RTP at 96 percent.

Cascading wins are symbols that disappear after a payout is made. This allows for new symbols to be added and increases the potential win potential.
Randomly activated throughout the base game, the reels may spin to reveal a set of reels of 6×6 and 7×7. This increases the chances of landing winning combinations.
These cascading wins are the reason that the bonus features of the game allow you to land a certain number consecutive wins on the same spin.
Players who land four payout wins in a single spin will be awarded a wild feature. This allows them to increase the number of wilds across the board.
The upgrading symbols feature will activate with four more wins. This transforms low- and medium-value symbols into higher paying alternatives.
The symbol transformer feature will activate when 12 consecutive wins are achieved. It will choose from a variety of symbols and transform them into another symbol to guarantee another win.
Additionally, four additional wins (16 total) will activate the free spins feature, with eight spins being awarded to the player.
This feature will be activated with the same setup as the free spins mode. If you win 16 consecutive times, the feature will trigger again with five extra turns.
In the free spins feature, symbols can be accompanied by multipliers between 2 and 5. These multipliers will be applied to any winning payouts they have contributed to.
Shelley Hannah is Director of Casino Products at Relax Gaming. She said: “We’re proud that we’ve launched Leprechaun Heist alongside our Relax Gaming Silver Bullet programme. This will take this game to as wide an audience as possible just in-time for St Patrick’s Day.
“Blue Guru Games continues to engage players with innovative concepts, and it’s a pleasure to play a role in that.”

This Megaways game features cascading winnings. After a payout is made, symbols that form a winning combination are removed. This allows for new symbols to be added and increases the potential win.
An additional horizontal bottom reel is available in the game. This adds an extra row between reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Players are taken to a set of 4×5 reels where only scatters from the heart can land. Each scatter resets the number of spins, giving players three chances to land as many scatters as possible.
Each heart that is dropped in will give one life to the free spins feature. There are up to 20 hearts.
Free spins will not deduct lives from each spin. Only broken hearts symbols on the fifth reel may remove lives. They will not fall on every spin so players can get more free spins than they lose.
A win multiplier will appear on the reels once the free spins start. It increases by one for each winning cascade. The multiplier will remain active throughout the game mode and will not reset between spins.
Nik Robinson is the CEO of BTG. He said: “We are constantly thinking about new features to surprise and delight players while pushing boundaries of what a slots can do. The possibilities are endless!
