Lucky Leprechaun slot from Microgaming

Lucky Leprechaun slot from Microgaming
Microgaming released this one in 2015, after the success of 2014’s Lucky Leprechaun’s Loot, but in fact, the two games have totally different gameplay. The Lucky Leprechaun slot machine is dedicated to Irish Luck, and the slot’s protagonist, a grinning leprechaun, is ready, willing, and able to show you where he hid some treasure chests. If you’re familiar with the theme, you won’t be surprised by the symbols displayed on the reels:

The cheeky Leprechaun, Dark beer, a wooden pipe, and a violin. The remaining ones are the routine card suits, the Wild game’s logo, the Bonus Scatter, and the 4-Leaf Clover Scatter. The latter is the one you wish to see, especially coming in more than 3. That’s when the Free Spins kick in, and the maximum win of 100 000 coins is showing at the horizon. In the meantime, there’s the Trail O’ Fortune Bonus to pursue, plus Stacked Wilds in any given spin. The slot machine is built with Medium Volatility, and an RTP is 95.5%, slightly under the industry standard. If the Irish bring you luck, you can see for yourself, but first, try the slot for free via the DEMO link on our site. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

Personal testers’ opinion

Maybe the theme is cheesy, but don’t we all play with one goal? Walking away with some cash. There’s a decent chance to do so with the Lucky Leprechaun slot machine if Irish luck is on your side. The prize pool is divided as follows: 67% of all your bets are set aside for payouts in the main game, while the remaining 33% are reserved for the bonus payouts. We had to be patient for the bonus Free Spins, as they only come around about every 136th spin - i.e. a statistical probability of 0.74%, which is not as often as we would like. The hit probability is also on the low side; not more than 30 spins out of 100 will get you any winning. Plus, they are often small to average, regardless if you play with gratis or with real credits. Our team did register one outlier of 142x the total bet in the base game, while on average, the wins during the bonus features were around 43x the total bet. So both win figures of our testing represent the prize pool division correctly. But because of the poor paytable and the insufficient RTP, we are inclined to leave negative advice when it comes to playing with real money. While for the bonus hunters as the slot scored an index of 5.38 (out of 10) on the wagering scale.

  • Trail O`Fortune Bonus Round - Landing 3, 4, or 5 Bonus Scatters will trigger this unique bonus feature where you can win up to 1000x the total bet. You’ll get to spin a wheel 4, 5, or 6 times (depending on the number of Scatters that fell in your lap), which will move you along the trail. You can obtain extra spins and jump ahead a few positions, and in the end, you’ll end up a lot richer than before you started this bonus round, depending on how far on the board you land.
  • Free spins - All it takes is one 4-Leaf Clover Scatter landing on reel 5 to launch 5 Free Spins with multiplier 2x attached. Here, all Leprechauns will turn into Wilds, and Clovers attached to the card suits will boost your wins some more.
