Oh look, another leprechaun themed slot! The game is as Irish as it can get. The main protagonist, of course, is the devilishly good-looking Mr. Lucky Leprechaun who chuckles and welcomes you to the game. From the soothing violin medley playing in the background to the Guinness, pipes, cloverleaf, and ace to symbols drawn with Celtic design. The symbols are well-designed, without being too tacky or cartoonish.
Lucky Leprechaun is a five-reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed pay lines and the backdrop of green fields and hills will make anyone who has previously played Irish slots, feel right at home. You can adjust the total sum that you wager per spin by betting anywhere from 0.20 to 20 coins. The maximum win of 2,000 coins isn’t really impressive, but this slot has a very decent ‘Return to Player Percentage’ and considering that relatively large wins come your way rather often, it still is a great proposition, to begin with.
Also, this is a fast-paced slot, so if you’d rather play with money wagers and take your time, Lucky Leprechaun may not be the best option for you. The game also has some rather unusual Free Spins which you’ll have to try for yourself to see what exactly they offer.
Symbols & Features
Wild Substitutions: The Lucky Leprechaun game logo is the Wild symbol and comes stacked on both the base game and the Free Spins. It replaces all other symbols apart from the Bonus ones.
Trail o’ Fortune: 3, 4, or 5 pots of Gold symbols anywhere on the five reels trigger the Trail o’ Fortune bonus round. Here you’ll get 4, 5 or 6 spins of the dice where you’ll move along the trail by 1 to 5 squares. Each square has an amount you’ll potentially win and is richer if triggered by more symbols. When triggered by 3 symbols, the pot at the end of the rainbow is at 500 times your bet. When triggered with 5 symbols, the pot sits at a stormy 1,000 times your total bet. You can also get a bonus spin if you discover the hidden emerald in the reels.
Free Spin Games: When you get the 4-leaf clover on reel five – you get 5 Free Spins with an initial 2x multiplier. The Wilds are still stacked, but the highest paid symbol is now also a Wild, giving you extra chances for more wins. The great thing is that on the symbols you can get little green or gold clover symbols. The green ones get you more free spins, the gold ones get you extra multipliers, up to 5x.
It’s another hit for Microgaming. Lucky Leprechaun is one of those games that can turn good or turn bad all of a sudden. Though the theme is already known and a little overused, it’s always nice to have the luck of the Irish. Overall the game theme is executed perfectly and it’s well balanced.
