Lucky Leprechaun belongs to a category that has seen a lot of use over the years, one that’s obviously inspired by the Irish legends and the riches that are supposedly hidden by these leprechauns. With Celtic style decorations for some symbols and typical leprechaun symbols for others, the game doesn’t surprise at the visual level, but we’ll take a look at the features as well to see what we get from it.
There will be 5 reels available in Lucky Leprechaun, and they will sport a total of 20 active lines. Wins as high as $500,000 are possible in the game, and as you try your luck at that ultimate target you have scatters, wilds, free spins and multipliers as high as 5x to help you out.
The bottom section is going to include this particular option, among other details about your available balance and wins. You have the option to modify two out of three options, the number of lines being the part that remains fixed at all times. You do vary the coin size between $0.01 and $0.50, and you also pick how many of the 10 coins you want used on each line. You have a minimum bet of $0.20, or a maximum one of $100, with plenty of values in-between.
Lucky Leprechaun Jackpot
The rewards of Lucky Leprechaun tend to look pretty good. One example is the bonus game which will pay up to 1,000x the stake, so $100,000. An alternative is landing a combo of five wilds which pays $5,000 in the base game or up to $25,000 during free spins. Use 20 lines filled with stacked wilds, to get that maximum reward of $500,000 while still in free spins mode.
Even the RTP looks good in this game, the figure quoted for it being 96.33%, so above the industry’s current average.
I’ve found several special features that should be appreciated in Lucky Leprechaun, the game includes them and makes sure you’re not getting just standard options.
Whether you’re in a paid spin or in a free one, you get the same type of wild symbol, a stacked one that can help out tremendously. Not only is this a substitute that will improve odds of forming winning combinations, but its own rewards are the highest that you get in the game, at least from the regular lines. The highest potential of the game is actually met if you get stacked wilds on all five reels, covering them fully.
Trail O Fortune Bonus
The Pot of Gold will be the second major symbol that you will love, as it gives you access to a bonus game whenever it’s visible on 3 or more reels in a single round. The bonus game gives you 4 to 6 spins of a wheel, which will tell you how many steps to take on the trail. The more steps you take, the closer you get to the ultimate prize, worth 1,000x the stake. Extra spins may be obtained, and there are shortcuts on the trail as well, so it’s entirely possible to reach that payout. This feature is only available during regular spins.
The Shamrock is your lucky symbol, through which you can reach the free spins. You only need one Shamrock on the 5th reel, to get access to 5 free spins where a 2x multiplier doubles your wins. The regular Leprechaun is going to turn your symbols into wilds here, and as you get green or golden shamrocks attached to Royal cards, you get additional free spins or bigger multipliers (up to 5x). There is no option to retrigger free spins.
On the design side of things, the game is mostly average. It’s a category in which we’ve seen a lot of slots released, and so the graphics quality tends to be quite high for the titles at the top. You have symbols from the Irish legends, such as leprechauns, pots of gold, shamrocks, violins, dark beer or smoking pipes. The less relevant positions get Celtic style Royal icons.
Lucky Leprechaun, with its above average RTP and rich mix of features, will have a high payout potential of up to 5,000x the stake, and for those reasons I’d say it’s a game to play, not ignore.
