Leprechauns seem to be in fashion within the gaming industry lately, as yet another video slot comes out featuring these crafty little magical beings.
Using such a popular theme, the challenge becomes making it different enough to stand out and lucrative enough to be picked over its competitors.
The way Red Tiger gaming has decided to tackle this is by combining their hi-end graphics with interesting features, Lucky Leprechaun being the true hero of the story and awarding you Generous Wilds, Symbol Swaps, Free Spins and large Multipliers.
What We Love
Time and effort Red Tiger puts into creating each of their slots is also evident in this one. Clean and attractive illustrations are nicely complemented by a typical Irish tune and Leprechaun character conversing with the player on various occasions.
You’re bound to be happy each time he appears as this means some good news are on the way. When he starts smoking his pipe, you know you’re guaranteed a win.
Receiving a number of identical high-paying symbols is good, getting your reels filled with numerous Wild icons is better. But what you’re hoping for most is to see his pipe produce one of special features’ triggers and allow you to benefit from multiple Free Spins or win x30, x50 or x100 your bet.
With a promise of potential 100 spins give-away and x1,000 Multiplier, you really can hope to reach the end of the rainbow and find your pot of gold. We also liked the additional element of ‘pick one’ incorporated into each of the features, it always helps to build excitement.
Total bet span is wide enough to accommodate players with different budgets, ranging from $0.20 per spin up to $500. You’re playing with 20 fixed paylines so this effectively means you can bet as little as 10c per line or as much as $25.
What We Do Not Like
Payout table is a bit unclear and it takes time to figure out what is what. While we love slot characters talking to us during the game, the incessant ‘go on!’ while waiting to spin 3rd trigger for one the special features, can get a bit irritating.
Especially after the umpteenth time with no hits. While on the subject, landing these triggers in triplet seems to be so hard you being to wonder why they’re there, especially since same features are activated by Leprechaun himself.
It’s certainly worth giving it a try. If you’ve never played a Red Tiger production, you’ll get to experience something a bit different. Features are creatively implemented and potentially highly rewarding, though you could go a while without having them activated.
Depending on your luck, this could mean a difference between getting bored quickly and getting hooked for hours. If you are a high-roller you’ll appreciate the opportunity to bet as much as $500 per spin, but those looking to risk lower amounts need not feel excluded, this slot will accommodate all.
Either way, it’s a fun way to fill your free time and there is a good win potential for gamers ready to invest cash.
