Reviews Microgaming’s Lucky Leprechaun Slots Machine
Clovers, pipes, Guinness and an Irish theme, what’s not to like about Lucky Leprechaun? This new game by Microgaming may not be the most original one, but it certainly is addictive. What’s more, you don’t need to wait for St. Patrick’s Day to play this one!
This is not the first time that Microgaming has jumped into an Irish-themed slot game. In fact, the first time it made such an offering was with the Lucky Leprechaun’s Loot slot game. This version is much improved upon by Microgaming. In Lucky Leprechaun, Microgaming has thankfully replaced the boring graphics and dull symbols with interesting and impressive ones.

How to Play the Game
While the old one was a five reel video slot game offering 50 pay lines, Lucky Leprechaun has maintained five reels, but reduced the pay lines to 25. Many casino game developers have touched the Irish-themed slot games – IGT’s Rainbow Riches, Ash Gaming’s Leprechaun’s Luck and Playtech’s Plenty O’Fortune being the most popular ones. However, Microgaming’s Lucky Leprechaun is different from them in several ways, and equally entertaining as well as rewarding. The game has a return to player percentage of 95.5 percent. You can bet from 20p and go up to £20.
The slot reels are filled with symbols like a leprechaun, a smoking pipe, a violin, three stout pints and the usual card deck symbols. The logo of the game – the Lucky Leprechaun is the Wild symbol. The game also has a bonus symbol in the form of a gold pot. The clover makes for the Scatter symbol. The Wild symbol can substitute for all the other symbols on the reels except the Scatter and bonus symbol.
Bonus Features of Lucky Leprechaun
Trail O’ Fortune – The Trail O’ Fortune bonus round is activated when you get more than two gold pots on any of the five reels. As the name suggests, you have to complete a trail by spinning a wheel that has five numbers. You get four to six spins to complete the trail. You proceed on the trail as per the numbers you get when you spin the wheel. At the end of the trail you have a cash jackpot of 1,000x waiting for you. In case you do not reach the end of the trail by the time you use all your spins, you are rewarded with a hefty cash jackpot. The Trail O’ Fortune bonus round gives you the opportunity to increase your bet amount up to 13 times the original value. You also get an extra spin every time you get a Scatter symbol or an Emerald on the trail.
Free Spins Scatter Symbol – The Scatter symbol, clover (with four leaves) takes you to the free spins round when you trigger it (remember, it only appears on reel five). It gives you five free spins. It does not end here. If you are lucky enough to win big with the free spins, your winning prize value is doubled. You can further increase your chances of cashing in a huge amount by attaching smaller green clovers and gold clovers to the lower value symbols on the reels, that is, A, K, Q, J and 10. Addition of the small green clover gives you an extra free spin while the gold clover increases your multiplier value by 1x (the highest you can get is five times the value).
With super sharp graphics, a popular theme, colorful symbols and huge prizes to win, there is no reason why you should not play this latest Irish-themed slot game from Microgaming
