Design and Symbols
With a name like Leprechaun Goes Wild, there is no doubt about what to expect from the slot's theme. The theme is of course based in Ireland where the reel set is surrounded by lush, green valleys, blue skies with fluffy clouds and some stone sculptures that have been scattered around in the grass. The reels themselves are surrounded by a wooden frame with some Celtic-inspired carvings, everything in place to give you the complete Irish feeling of the game.
Symbols in the game include several images of leprechauns as well as a green hat, horseshoes, a beer mug, tobacco pipe and of course a pot of gold. The lower paying symbols are per usual, the card suits from 10 to A. Out of these symbols, the pot of gold offers the largest prize of the standard symbols where you will receive 20x your total stake for 5 symbols on a pay line.
When it comes to the different pictures of leprechauns, these show him smoking, drinking beer, looking sad and also smiling. Each of these four different looks will function as a wild symbol and will be able to substitute all other symbols in the game except for the scatter. The leprechaun gives the biggest payout, paying 40x you stake for 5 symbols. The scatter symbol of the game shows a 4-leaf clover.
The special features in Leprechaun Goes Wild give you a good shot of getting some pretty big payouts. In the free spins feature you can be awarded with up to 13 free spins while the Luck of the Irish bonus feature also can result in some pretty good wins. As well as these two features you will of course also find the scatter symbols and wilds in the game.
The different varieties of the Leprechaun himself are the wilds of this slot and they can each appear on their own reel. When these symbols appear on the reels they will be able to substitute any other symbol with the exception of the scatter symbol.
The scatter symbol of the game is the 4-leaf clover. This symbol can only appear on the reels 1, 3 and 5 and will trigger the free spins feature when 3 or more land on the reels.
Luck of the Irish feature
The bonus game of Leprechaun Goes Wild is the Luck of the Irish feature. This goes on during the base game where wild symbols will randomly be added anywhere on any of the reels. As you might guess, this can of course result in you getting some pretty good wins.
Also, an extra scatter symbol will be added during the base game which will allow the main event to be triggered.
Free Spins feature
The free spins feature of the slot will be triggered automatically when 3 or more scatter symbols land on the reels. This feature can also be triggered when an extra scatter appears on the screen. When the free spins feature is triggered, you will receive 7, 9, 11 or 13 free spins, the amount chosen will be completely random.
While this feature is triggered, all wild symbols will become sticky until the feature is over. Should one or more of the sticky wilds land on the reels, you will then be rewarded with 3, 5, 7 or 9 extra free spins. Should you be really lucky and get all the reels filled with sticky wilds you will get a win of 800x your total bet.
Our thoughts on Leprechaun Goes Wild
Overall, this is a pretty good slot from Play'n GO. While the theme of the game certainly is overused, it seems like players enjoy a good old Irish Leprechaun theme. Most players will without a doubt enjoy all the features that have been added, such as the free spins feature, the multiple scatters and also the sticky wilds.
While not offering anything new in terms of theme, Play'n GO have done a good job in creating good graphics, several extra features, good wins of up to 10 000x your stake and an RTP that is above average at 96.20%. Leprechaun Goes Wild won't get any wins for being original, but it can still keep you entertained for a couple of hours.
