Red Tiger Gaming's Lucky Irish UK Online Slot Game

As its title suggests, Well of Wishes slot is an Irish luck-themed UK slot. This release comes from the vaults of Red Tiger Gaming and is about as basic and elementary in terms of gameplay as one would expect to find. This UK online slot uses surprisingly primitive graphics, which is strange as Red Tiger is a developer which has attracted renown for its use of 3D imagery and animations. The UK slot also deviates from the traditional Irish luck theme, by working in other aspects of luck into its imagery, such as a rabbit’s foot, a bag of gold coins and horseshoe icons. 

As mentioned, Well of Wishes slot offers basic gameplay. There are just 10 pay lines spanning Well of Wishes’ 5 reels, and these are fixed into place. On top of that, the game costs at least 20p a turn, which is more than you might expect. Stakes can rise to £20 a spin, so despite the costly minimum stake, maximum bets are very affordable. There is an industry-standard RTP rate of 95.66% in this Red Tiger UK slot, and prizes are non-progressive and worth up to 300x a stake.

Well of Wishes Slot Special Features 

Clover icons appear as wilds in Well of Wishes slot game and can replace all standard paying icons. They cannot substitute for scatter emblems, though. Wilds do not dole out cash prizes on their own accord, and so solely act as substitute symbols. 

When a wild emblem does appear on the reels of Well of Wishes slot, it will be collected above the reels in one of five pots. Once a pot is full, the wilds will be dropped into a Well of Wishes. One type of symbol will then be transformed into wild icons, and the game will check to see if a new winning combination is created. If so, it will pay out any winnings accordingly. 

Scatter icons appear as the “Lucky Spins” symbol. Land three of these spin scatters on the reels of Well of Wishes slot game and players will trigger the UK slot’s only other bonus round, a predictable free spin feature. To aid in triggering the round, any scatters which do appear will remain in place for the subsequent spin, meaning that players always have a second chance to trigger the round if they are missing a scatter or two.

Well of Wishes Slot Free Spins & Bonus Features 

Once the bonus round begins, Well of Wishes slot will provide players with a total of 10 free games. Once again, players can fill up the pots above the reels with wilds. This time, though, additional free spins, as well as wilds, can be won when the pots overflow. On top of that, any wild symbols which are delivered via the Well of Wishes feature will remain sticky and in place for the duration of the round. 

Fun Facts!

Will the wishing well in Well of Wishes slot grant your wishes and bring you good fortune? Where did this belief about the humble water well originate?

According to the "Fountain Money Mountain" report, tourists throw almost 3 million pounds sterling into wishing wells per year. The Trevi Fountain in Rome is the most profitable in the world. It collects around $4000 every day. Still, there are only theories of the origin of this practice.

The Germanic and Celtic tribes held springs and wells sacred and marked them with wooden statues. They believed that the well guardians will grant them wish if they paid a price. However, the guardian would only fulfil the wish if the coin landed face up.

Another popular theory comes from Norse mythology. In order to save the world from destruction, Odin sought to drink from the Well of Wisdom. It was guarded by Mimir known as "the wisest of the world's beings", who drank from it every day. To attain knowledge Odin had to pay a steep price, his right eye, which was tossed into the well.

Why We Love Well of Wishes Slot Game

Well of Wishes slot is a refreshing take on the Irish theme. It has a few handy features players may not have seen in UK slots before. The ability for scatters to linger for another spin in the hope of triggering the bonus is likely to please UK slot players. Despite its so-so graphics, this is a top release from Red Tiger and is well worth a punt.
