What to Expect from Lucky Leprechaun?
Popular culture has turned rather mean and grumpy leprechaun-fairies from Irish mythology into cheerful and presentable (sometimes even fashionable) symbols of luck and wealth. Few mythical creatures fit into the reels on slot games better than these modern leprechauns. Lucky Leprechaun slot from Microgaming is one of the many games exploiting the popular character.
The game looks rather simplistic, with a green theme (no surprises here), short animations, and traditional Irish stuff as symbols. These include clovers, pipes, pints of ale, and violins. The game sounds are great. You will be listening to an Irish-inspired relaxing melody while playing the game. Plus, you can also hear the voice of the leprechaun from time to time.
Lucky Leprechaun is a typical five-reel video slot with three rows of symbols and 20 paylines. The Return to Player rate is equal to 96.33%, which is higher than average. The game also works well on modern mobile gadgets so that you can feel free to play it just while on the go.
Irish Features and Bonuses
When it comes to enhancing your winnings, there are two Scatters (the Lucky Clover and the Pot of Gold), and the Wild, represented by the game logo. The Lucky Clover Scatter appears on the fifth reel only and activates five free spins with the x2 multiplier. During your free spins, all the Leprechaun symbols will turn Wild. No, they don’t start running around biting your fingers off. They just give you a cheesy used-car-salesman wink and substitute the non-Scattered symbols, in addition to the standard Wild.
That’s not all the action going on in the free spins. You’ll also occasionally get a green clover or a golden clover attached to “cheap” card symbols. The first one gives you an additional free spin, and the second one – plus one to the multiplier (up to x5 max).By the way, the free spins round can be prolonged, if you’re lucky enough to get more green clovers.
The second bonus is called the Trail o Fortune (because the proper “of” would have been too long). It is activated by three or more pots of gold anywhere on the reels. It works like this: you spin a little wheel, and advance along the trail, increasing your bet multiplier as you do so. The number of these spins depends on the number of pots, which activated the bonus. There are shortcuts that allow you to jump ahead several cells, and you can also find a green gem, that gives you an additional spin. At the end of the trail, the 1000x bet multiplier awaits.
Lucky Leprechaun is a nice slot overall. It can’t boast the cutting-edge graphics, but the two features it has (the free spins and the bonus game) will make you come back for more. Surely, this time, the sneaky leprechaun will share the pot with you, and you’ll start smiling just as wide. So, give a try to Lucky Leprechaun, find where the rainbow starts, and all the gold will be yours. May Irish luck be with you!
