Leprechaun’s Fortune Slot Machine
This is a slot where you’ll hope the Luck of the Irish is shining on you and you’ll finally reach that pot of gold that awaits you at the end of the rainbow. The game is all about fortune, the symbols representing many differ aspects of luck. The leprechaun in the title of the slot is the wild in the game and is joined by such symbols as a four leaf clover, wild mushrooms, a fiddle, a pixie and the pot of gold and the rainbow of course.
The slot is framed against the backdrop of an Irish countryside scene, the green hills and fields being interspersed by a brilliant blue river running through the middle. Alongside all of the ‘lucky’ symbols, you’ll also find the playing cards from nine to ace, these symbols all different colours set against a white backing. Graphically this slot is a little lacking, the slot having a slightly outdated feel which is actually not helped by the large number of playing card symbols – if all of the symbols were relevant to the theme it might look better, as these symbols are more colourful and better designed. The sound is a little weak too, not really relevant to the slot until the feature round.
Leprechaun’s Fortune Reels / Symbols / Features
The slot has five reels, but a little unusually has four symbols showing on each reel. Due to this there are 50 win lines, although you’ll be able to customize this amount by moving the number of lines up and down two at a time. The combination of the coin value and the number of lines will give you your total stake for the slot, although you’ll actually pay for 2 lines at a time as opposed to 1 as you would at the majority of online slots.
Wins are achieved by landing consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line, some of the highest paying symbols requiring just 2 in a row, while the majority require 3. The rainbow is the top paying symbol, winning you 200 coins if landing 5 in a row, while all of the other ‘luck’ relevant symbols win you 100 coins. The playing cards are the lowest paying and will give you a win of between 75 and 40 coins for 5 in a row.
Options in the game include an auto play button where the slot will play without interruption for up to 100 spins and a dynamic pay table which will show the actual win amount based upon your coin size.
The leprechaun is the wild in the game and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter, this little red bearded character only appearing on reel one.
The scatter in the game is the pot of gold which only appears on reels 1, 2 and 3. Should it land on all three you’ll be taken to the free spins round.
Leprechaun’s Luck Free Spins Feature
Having landed the feature you’ll be given 10 free spins and at first it looks very much like a standard round with nothing added. However, should the Leprechaun wild appear on the reels, he will remain there as a sticky until the end of the feature. This means that by the end of the round, you’ll have many wilds across the slot, making for bigger wins at the back end of the feature. Not only this, but you can also land the feature again during the round, where you’ll be given an additional 5 free spins.
Leprechaun’s Luck Conclusion
It would be fair to say that this isn’t the best slot produced by WMS. It doesn’t look particularly polished and there is not too much going on when it comes to the features, with simply a single free spins round. However, the sticky wilds during the feature actually gives the game a huge boost and turns it from a slot that might be instantly forgettable to one you will certainly consider playing again.
