Have Faith in the Well of Wishes
The wishing well is something that people from all over the world have used for centuries to help them make their dreams come true. It is thought that the tradition originated when people started to throw precious items into specific wells in an effort to gain the general favour of the gods or local deities, but over time that practice transformed into tossing a coin into the well in exchange for the granting of a more specific wish.
Wishing wells aren’t quite as common as they used to be in the real world, but a new online slot game called Well of Wishes from development company Red Tiger makes the tradition accessible to anyone with a desktop, tablet or mobile device.
Well of Wishes
This is a five-reel game with ten pay lines and takes place against a green backdrop of four-leaf clovers which are said to bring luck to whoever happens to find one. Lower-value symbols are the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, and higher value symbols are a four-leaf clover, a lucky horseshoe, a lucky mojo pouch and a rabbit’s foot. Also in play are a Lucky Spins symbols and Lucky Coins.
For some reason, anything lucky in the world of online slots games seems to have an Irish link, and the same applies here, with the soundtrack having the distinct flavour of an Irish jig. There are no leprechaun’s in sight here, but they’re probably around somewhere because we can almost sense them in the atmosphere that the Red Tiger developers have created.
Lucky Coin Feature
The Lucky Coin symbol serves as a wild, but in addition to helping you complete or improve winning lines, it can also help you to trigger a special feature. Every time a Lucky Coin symbol appears on the reels, it is collected in a wishing well area which is located above the three rightmost reels. When you have collected five Lucky Coins, the Well of Wishes will spring up from below the reels and your collected coins will be thrown into it. In return, the wishing well will then randomly select one game symbol to serve as a wild on the next spin.
Lucky Spins Feature
The Lucky Spins feature is triggered by getting three Lucky Spins symbols on the reels at the same time. If you don’t manage that on your first attempt then don’t panic because any Lucky Spin symbol which appears will stick in place for the following spin, giving you an extra chance to get the three you need.
Once triggered, this feature will give you ten free spins, and the four-leaf clover background will turn purple. You will see more Lucky Coins appear on the reels during this part of the game, and every time you collect five of them you will be awarded three more free spins. As if that wasn’t enough, the symbols which are turned wild by the Well of Wishes will remain wild for all remaining free spins.
