    I've been spinning for a while and still seeing nothing. Anyone else?

    They randomly pop up on the side. The more you collect the more chips you get.

    Hmmm. How many do you need to collect? Trying to decide if it's worth it to keep trying. I've got 26k chips atm.

    I got one when I hit the free spins bonus, it gave me 500 credits as well (3000 credits per spin)

    I got 500 credits for my first shamrock 1,500 for my third (sorry, didn't see the second one), betting 200 per spin. So it appears the shamrock pays out a fixed amount regardless of your total bet.

    I've hit 5 so far, all at 60 a spin. I figure the amount is set regardless of line bet so I've just got it running the cheapest way to maximize play duration :D

    I got them all pretty quickly, you win 50k and then some. But more importantly, I kept hitting big jackpots and and eventual got up to over 2 million chips.. of course now I"m down to about 375k. But i did level up like 11 times.

    I'm not sure, but the probability of collecting them may be proportional to bet size. I have been spinning for hours at 300 and have less than 10...blah.

    Started at level 59 spun for about 3hrs...got all 13 you need. Betting 1500 a spin but I dont think that matters as far as getting the Shamrocks i just wanted to level up faster so I can get to 65 for my Bellagio Buffets.
    Started at 200K chips and went down to about 80K...but by the time I was done I was at 252K and well into level 60.

    Trying to remember pay table...I think it was something like 500, 1500, 3K, 5K, 10K, 20K, and finally 50K as you level up to 13 Shamrocks. So all told you get about 90K chips?

    I too got 50k for betting 1500 per spin. However, it was on the 13th Shamrock. Plus, while playing, I got $26,500 in smaller shamrock bonues. Total was $76,500.

    Even with all that I still managed to lose $87,466 :( It's a darn good thing I was not in Vegas today. lol

    After you get the 13 shamrocks and get the 50k, do you start over? I have not gotten anything after the initial 13.

    SO, I just got my 5th and 6th and I didnt get any chips for getting them... this hppened to be a few times before where I win something and I dont get the credit for it. My thoughts Im not spening any money on this isnt not a big deal but I dont get why that happens.

    You don't get chips for all of them. I think there were maybe 4 that you got rewards for (1,3,8 and 13) with the 13th being for the 50k. So I don't think that you didn't get something that you were entitled to.
