The new Lucky Emeralds online pokie from Origins (a Playtech company) first arrived at some of our top-rated Kiwi online casinos in March 2020. The game was released simultaneously on desktop and mobile, and it can be launched either instantly in your web browser or from within the Playtech casino download client. It’s the second instalment in the new ‘Emeralds’ series of online pokies, and it’s available in the real money mode and free play demo mode.
Origins is an independent studio that develops online casino gaming content exclusively for Playtech, and their games can be found at Casino.com. Some of the other popular online pokies from Playtech Origins that some of you may already be familiar with by now are titles such as the series of Kingdoms Rises jackpot pokies, some of the Age of the Gods jackpot pokies, and standalone titles such as Jackpot Giant, White King, Buffalo Blitz, and Shields of Rome.
The new Lucky Emeralds online pokie has 5 reels and 10 paylines, and you can take one spin of the reels from as little as NZ$0.10 up to a maximum of NZ$500.00 per spin. The maximum jackpot on this game is fixed at 500x times your total stake, and the main special symbol to keep an eye out for is the multi-coloured Shamrock Wild Symbol, which can land in any position across any of the 5 reels and will substitute all other symbols to help form new wins.
There are no Scatter Symbols or Bonus Symbols, which means that the game also doesn’t have a Free Spins Bonus Round to win prizes from or second screen Picking Bonus. Instead, the main bonus feature is the Clover Wilds feature, which can occasionally trigger some really big winning combinations. If you look just above the reels, you will notice miniature Wild Symbols hovering above certain reels.
These mini wilds can appear as 1, 2 or 3 Wild Symbols, and they will move across the screen from left to right by one reel with each spin. As soon as a Wild Symbol lands on the main reel set below, any miniature wilds that are currently hovering above any of the reels will instantly drop down onto the reels to hopefully form some kind of new winning combination for you. Unfortunately, this feature doesn’t always award a win.
The new Wild Symbols that dropped down from above will only be present on the reels for one spin, after which they will disappear from view. If you enjoyed playing on the Egyptian Emeralds online pokie, or games such as Land of Gold, Gaelic Luck, Leprechaun’s Luck or Irish Luck, then I’m fairly certain that you’re going to enjoy playing on the new Lucky Emeralds online pokie too.
