Lucky Leprechauns Loot is a game that runs on Microgaming software and is based on the Irish folklore of the Leprechaun. According to this Irish myth a leprechaun is a type of fairy depicted as a small, mischievous, Irish man with a beard, coat and hat and who likes practical jokes. As the legend goes, leprechauns have hidden pots of gold at the end of rainbows.

If the leprechaun is captured by a human he will supposedly grant that person three wishes in exchange for his freedom. Lucky Leprechauns Loot follows this theme and you will see an image of a rainbow above the reels. The rainbow seemingly ends in the Irish countryside, as there is a farm-like setting with a barn.

As it is an Irish themed slot there is plenty of green in the background behind the reels. The player will go on a journey to find the rainbow and reach its end in order to discover the Leprechaun’s pot which is filled with great rewards. The game has 5 reels and 50 paylines with a maximum jackpot reward of 25,000 coins.

Reel Symbols in Lucky Leprechauns Loot

The reels themselves feature symbols connected to the theme of an Irish leprechaun and his pot of gold. Examples include the leprechaun himself as well as a bag of coins, a four leaf gold coin, the leprechauns pointy shoes and of course the pot of gold.

There are some interesting sound effects too that add to the theme. The Leprechaun symbol is both the scatter symbol as well as the highest paying symbol in the game. When 5 of the Leprechaun symbol completes a winning line the player will be rewarded with the highest jackpot amount. As a scatter symbol, when 3 or more of the Leprechaun symbol appear on the reels at the same time the Free Spins Bonus Feature is activated.

The Wild symbol in Lucky Leprechauns Loot is the Gold Coin. This means that the Gold Coin will substitute for the other symbols (except for the scatter symbol) to form more winning combinations.

The Free Spins Feature

Lucky Leprechauns Loot has a bonus Free Spins feature that is activated by 3, 4 or 5 of the Leprechaun symbols land across any of the 5 reels in one spin. The player will be rewarded with either 15, 20 or 25 free spins depending on the number of  Leprechaun scatter symbols appear. Any wins at that the player receives during these free spins will be multiplied by 3. If the Wild appears as part of a winning combination then the winnings are multiplied by 6.

At the end of the free spins the player is given three choices: they can either collect their total winnings from the free spins round or they can choose a mystery prize which can be up to 500x the total bet. Finally, they can choose to put back their winnings and replay the free spins in order to try win more second time around.
