Lucky Leprechaun review
While the Leprechaun theme has to be up there with one of the most commonly found slot game themes on the market, online slots provider Microgaming has managed to bring something new to the table with their effort. This is shown throughout its design aspects and gameplay, but the Trail of Fortune which delivers numerous multipliers of different sizes is certainly the USP of the game and one that will be a big hit with fans.

Lucky Leprechaun Bonus Features
Those tired of the Leprechaun theme shouldn’t write off Microgaming just yet, as the bonus features within this take on the theme, provide the player with a much wider scope for gameplay benefits. Without further ado, let’s delve into what makes this game most unique.
Lucky Leprechaun’s Trail of Fortune mini-game is by the game’s biggest asset. These can be entered into upon getting between 3 and 5 bonus icons on the reels. These symbols will then be reflected in the rolls of the dice you get when the game begins which will move you across the squares on the Trail of Fortune.
With each square you land on, a bonus will be awarded, with free spins earnt if you land on an Emerald. You can skip squares and head towards the end place by landing on a bridge. Getting to the end is the goal, as when you reach here you can get massive multipliers worth between 500x and 1,000x of your bet, reflective of the bonus symbols you earned to trigger the game.
There are more multipliers available when you trigger free spins. This can be done, in accordance with the theme, when you get a four-leaf clover on reel 5. This will see you earn 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier attached.
The wilds in this game are stacked and also replace all other symbols. A nice other addition to the wilds is that they come with their own payouts of up to 500 coins for 5.
Lucky Leprechaun Jackpot
There is no set jackpot for this game, but the highest amount you can win would be as a result of the Trail of Fortune, which pays out 1,000x your bet. With this in mind, if you are playing with the highest bet level, £20, then this means £20,000 is up for grabs.
RTP and volatility
The game is slightly below average in the RTP department, with only 95.5%. This is duelled with a medium variance too, which means the payouts are very middle of the road, or trail, as the case may be.
Lucky Leprechaun Mobile
You can keep on chasing the rainbow and following the Trail of Fortune on your mobile, with this game optimized for this purpose.
