Irish Riches from 888: Slot Review - find this Leprechaun and claim all of his gold!
This game centres around a rather jolly stout Leprechaun who lives in toadstool house in a hidden field somewhere in Ireland. He is sat upon a huge jackpot of gold and you will need the luck of the Irish if you want to nab it right from under his nose!
So gather up as many four-leaf clovers as you can and chase that rainbow all around Ireland until you find this Leprechaun's secret hideaway.
It is a 5 reel slot game with 15 paylines and comes with features such as a Leprechaun Rainbow bonus game and free spins.
The first thing to highlight is the Wild symbol and this is denoted by a rather colourful rainbow. It substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter and Bonus symbols.
The Scatter symbol is denoted by the Leprechaun's cheery smile. If you land 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels then you will activate the Free Spins feature. The more Scatter symbols you land, the higher the chance of getting a larger number of free spins. The Wild symbol plays a major part in this feature as Wild symbols will stay on the reels throughout the Free Spins feature. The Leprechaun will also change the positions of the Wild symbols from time to time in this game.
The Bonus symbol is depicted by a large crock of gold. If you land 3 Bonus symbols across the reels then you will activate the Leprechaun Rainbow bonus game. In this game, you are granted 2 wishes from the smiling Leprechaun and with each wish, you will be awarded a cash prize and a mystical multiplier!
The last feature to mention is the progressive jackpot. This jackpot is awarded randomly and no matching symbols are required in order to win it. The size of your bet will determine your chances of winning this jackpot.
Theme and Graphics
This game is full of life and colour from the clear blue skies in the background right through to the happy Leprechaun sitting on his big crock of gold.
The symbols are nicely detailed and represent different parts of Irish culture such as harps, pipes and of course Leprechaun hats! The animations are smooth and I enjoyed watching the Leprechaun relax on his crock of gold as he smoked a pipe and blew bubbles at me!
The music is very jaunty with a lot of traditional Irish music. I even felt my toes tapping at one stage as the reels spun and the music bounced along.
