Leprechaun’s Fortune is a classic Irish luck themed video slot from WMS Gaming. Featuring cartoon style visuals and a 5 reel, 50 payline game engine, it comes with a bonus feature that awards an initial 10 free spins with sticky wilds. Play from between 25p and £125 per spin.
Visually, Leprechaun’s Fortune is pretty basic with the graphics dominated by blocky, Commodore 64 style images. Symbols on show include lower value playing cards from A to 9 as well as fiddles, toadstools, four leaf clovers, fairies and rainbows. You only need to land 2 of the clovers, fairies and rainbows to create a winning combination. 5 rainbows will see you pocket 8 times your totals stake.
The laughing leprechaun is the game’s wild – it can land on reels 2 through 5 and replaces all other symbols with the exception of the scatter.
The pot of gold coins is the that scatter – this can only hit on reels 1, 2 and 3. When they do on the same spin, you’ll activate the Free Spins feature – here you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. The lucky leprechaun is your friend here. Whenever the wild lands, it will remain frozen in position for the remainder of the free spins that follow. Land the 3 scatters during the feature and you’ll be given another 5 free spins.
The variance here is in the medium range, offering a balance of payouts. Expect a steady stream of lower level wins in the base game. Of more interest is the free spins feature – the allocation of 10 free spins isn’t the largest you’ll see but the sticky wilds can certainly make it a potentially lucrative bonus round.
Leprechaun’s Fortune is pretty simple take on the classic fruity, albeit 1 with a very green tinge. The visuals are straight from the old school but have a certain retro charm. The features are nice and simple too. The chief attraction is the bonus feature where the sticky wilds can really move the free spins along.
If you want some classic, old school action with an Irish twist then Leprechaun’s Fortune offers just that. I also recommend you try Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold which incorporates Colossal Reels technology deployed by sister company WMS.
