Leprechaun Goes Wild Slot

Hope that Irish eyes are smiling in the 5 reel, 20 payline Leprechaun Goes Wild, a volatile take on all things green from Play ’N Go. Land 2 scatters on the same spin and you’ll receive extra wilds on each reel or trigger the bonus round where up to 22 free spins are on offer, complete with sticky wilds. This high variance slot is available to play on all devices from 20p to £100 per spin.

All the usual visual clichés

The design in Leprechaun Goes Wild is just what you’d expect to see in a slot with this theme. Joining the lower value A to 10 royals are a pint of beer, a pipe and a green top hat. The top standard symbol is the pot of gold coins. This pays 2, 4 or 20 times your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Wilds aplenty

Each reel has its own wild leprechaun symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them in combination and you’ll pocket a payday equal to 3, 6 or 40 times your total stake. The leprechauns aren’t the only wilds here. The 4-leaf clover scatter is too.

Luck of the Irish feature

Land 2 of the scatter symbol on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Luck of the Irish feature – you’ll then receive one of the following extras:

  • Extra Wild – 1 extra wild is added to each of the 5 reels
  • Extra Scatter – the added scatter results in a trigger of the Free Spins feature

Free Spins feature

Land 3 scatters naturally on the same spin or with the help of the Extra Scatter to activate the Free Spins feature. You’ll then go on to play 7, 9, 11 or 13 free spins. There aren’t any scatters in this round. Boosting your chances though are sticky wilds that lock in position for the remainder of the round when they hit.

If you have at least 1 sticky wild on all 5 reels you’ll get a re-trigger and another round of free spins (with 3, 5, 7 or 9 extra free spins added to your tally).

Simple, volatile action

Play ‘N Go hasn’t exactly re-invented the wheel with the Leprechaun Goes Wild slot. The design and gameplay are simple and straightforward which is just what you’d expect given the theme. Yes, it’s rather basic. The high variance can make it well worth a spin though.

The most you can win is 800 x stake on each spin or free – by getting a screen full of wild symbols. The chances of doing this is higher in the Free Spins feature due to the sticky wild symbols. When it comes to the RTP, it’s 96.2% which is decent.

Play ‘N Go has produced some superb slots over the years – Leprechaun Goes Wild is 1 of the simpler ones. I would try Wild Blood 2 or Coywolf Cash which offer bigger potential wins.
