There seems to be a surfeit of Irish themed slot games available to play right now, and although you may think that Lucky Leprechaun is just another addition to the Irish themes stable, Microgaming have given it their own twist.
Lucky Leprechaun slots is a 20 payline game across five reels and come with a Return to Player ratio of 96.33%, well within the average for this type of game. The coin range starts at $/€/£0.01 to a max of $/€/£0.10 per line, which gives you a total stake of between 20 pence and $/€/£20 per spin, with a maximum win of $/€/£20,000.
When it comes to Irish themed slots games, it is difficult for programmers and designers to come up with something a little bit different, and to avoid too many clichés. Microgaming have not gone out of their way to make this any different appearance-wise with symbols ranging from pipes, a cloverleaf, Guinness and the 10 to Ace symbols sporting a Celtic design, this game is about as Irish as you can get.
Like Rainbow Riches, Lucky Leprechaun slots does have a couple of features that Rainbow Riches doesn’t. Firstly, you get the chance to land stacked wild symbols, and this gives you the chance to get some sizeable wins even during the base game. Secondly, you get free spins, but these are not your typical run of the mill free spins.
You just need to land one bonus symbol on reel five to be rewarded with five free spins plus a 2x multiplier. However, should you be lucky enough to land a green clover on any of the reels then you will receive another free spin. This means you will typically end up with 8 to 10 free spins, and if you land a gold clover then you will receive an extra multiplier with a maximum of 5x your stake.
What sets this game apart is that Microgaming have given it one of their great twists, which is the ability to win big with stacked wild symbols, and the addition of the fact that the symbol that pays the highest also turns wild.
The Trail of Fortune mini-game is what sets Lucky Leprechaun apart from similar games and is its biggest asset. You get access to the mini-game by landing either 3,4 or five bonus symbols on any of the reels. Those symbols will then be mirrored in the rolls of the dice you get as the game begins, and this will move you farther along with the squares on Trail of Fortune.
Each square you land on will give you a bonus, and you can skip squares by landing on a bridge. The goal is to reach the end and if you do you could receive multipliers of between 500 to 1000x your stake.
This game may look the same as the other Irish themed slots game, but the Trail of Fortune bonus game and the ability to win big on the base game sets it apart from the others. The game is available to play at casino77.com.
