Chase The Rainbow and Your Fortune With Gaelic Gold

Gaelic Gold is a 3x3 layout online pokie from Nolimit City with a leprechaun theme. Will you find your fortune at the end of the rainbow?

Do you ever wish that online casinos would offer pokies that were not super complicated? Do you wish that software developers would go back to basics when it comes to online pokies? Gaelic Gold could be just what you are looking for.

Nolimit City launched Gaelic Gold in March 2020, and it did not receive too much attention. Why? Because it is a simple poker machine, but one with a unique charm, and one that should be played more by pokies lovers everywhere. We played Gaelic Gold at Megaslot casino and bagged 75 free spins plus a $1,350 bonus.

Gaelic Gold Fundamentals

Gaelic Gold is an Irish / leprechaun-themed online pokie from Nolimit City. Such a theme is nothing new because developers love all things Ireland, but Nolimit City made their machine different. It runs on a 3×3 board, which is far away from the 5×3 or Megaways layouts of most modern pokies. The layout takes some getting used to, yet it makes a welcome change.

This game comes with two RTP ranges, so make sure you always play the version with the highest RTP. One has 96.15%, which is acceptable, the other is 94.42%. The latter’s house edge weighs in at 5.58% which should not happen in the online world.

Gaelic Gold’s mathematics model creates medium variance, so your bankroll does not have to be huge. The Nolimit City website states one-in-five in the game’s hit rate, and the maximum possible win is 9,837x. That maximum payout equates to $983.70 at the lowest $0.10 stakes, and $983,700 at $100 stakes.

Gaelic Gold Symbols

There are nine paying symbols on the Gaelic Gold board despite its small 3×3 layout. They all are all leprechaun-based, as you would expect from a pokie with this name! You play with five paylines that run left to right, and you need three symbols for a win.

Royals, jacks through aces, are the lowest value symbols, paying 1x for landing three matching symbols. Hats, shoes, and a mouth-watering beer are the medium-value symbols. They pay between 2-6x for, again, landing three of a kind.

Landing a trio of horseshoes pays you 10x your bet with the leprechaun-themed wild paying out 15x.

Symbol Payout
Leprechaun Wild 15x
Golden Horseshoe 10x
Beer 6x
Shoe 4x
Hat 2x
Jacks through Aces 1x

A special, rare symbol starts the only Gaelic Gold bonus round: the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It occasionally appears and teases you about landing; it does this more than once we can tell you!

What Are The Game’s Features?

Gaelic Gold comes armed with Nolimit City’s xNudge feature built in, which applies to the Wild symbol. The Wild is three blocks high and always will be even it only a part of it shows on the board. The game nudges the Wild up or down until it fills an entire reel. Each shift increases a multiplier by 1x, which leads to big wins if you have two Wilds in view.

Rainbow Spins is the main Gaelic Gold bonus feature. Triggering it is tricky because the Pot of Gold Bonus symbol must land in the exact middle of the board. It teased us several times before eventually hitting.

The feature grants you five free spins, but there are game modifiers before the free spins round begins. Nine gold coins appear, and you are guaranteed to open at least one. Extra free spins, multipliers up to 5x, and addition paylines (up to nine) are hidden. One button is the start button. Hit this and it ends the modifier selection mini-game.


Gaelic Gold is not every pokie player’s cup of tea. It stands out against a world of feature-rich, multi-line pokies. How it stands up depends on whether you like it or not.

We do like Gaelic Gold because of its simplicity. You can fire it up, spin away listening to the Irish music, and not have a care in the world. That is what playing pokies is about sometimes. Sure, the game will not win any awards for its graphics or its originality, but it is a charming pokie to add to your favourites.
