Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways Video Slot Review

Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways: Demo

Go hunting for treasure at the end of the rainbow in Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways by Blueprint Gaming. This updated version of the original 2017 release comes with 4 modifiers that can trigger on any spin as well as a free spins round where a multiplier increases with each cascade win. Play this medium variance game from between 10p and £10 per spin.

Cartoon design

The design here is virtually identical to what was in the original Wish Upon a Leprechaun video slot. On the reels you’ll see A to 9 royals alongside a golden horseshoe, a hat and a wishing well. The top symbol is the Wish Upon a Leprechaun logo which pays 1, 2, 10, 25 or 50 times your bet if you land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination. There’s also a wild.

Cascading reels & up to 117,649 ways to win

Each time a winning combination hits, the successful symbols are removed a cascade takes place in the Cascading Reels feature. The cascades continue until no new winning combination hits. The number of symbols on each reel changes with each spin. So too does the number of Megaways.

If all the reels offer the full complement of symbols, you’ll have 117,649 ways to create a winner. There’s also a Mystery Symbols feature – the gold 4-leaf clover is the Mystery Symbol. All examples of this that land on the same spin transform into the same matching symbol and a new payout calculation is made.

4 base game modifiers

On any spin, Tam the Lucky Leprechaun could spring into life and award 1 of the following reel multipliers.

  • Rainbow Respin feature – this modifier turns what was a losing spin into a winner.
  • Golden Clover Spin feature – the leprechaun adds a selection of mystery 4-leaf clovers onto the reels which could lead to a new winning combination being created.
  • Lucky Streak Spin feature – the symbols from a winning combination are held and a streak respin is awarded. The respins continue as long as a new matching symbol or wild hits.
  • Guaranteed Megaways feature – a spin is awarded on expanded reels which offer extra active Megaways.

Free spins with unlimited win multiplier

Land 3 or more pot of gold scatters on the same spin to trigger the Free Spins feature. Before the free spins commence, you can gamble to win more free spins in the Free Spins Gamble feature – win to get 2 more free spins. If you lose, 2 free spins are taken way. You can gamble successfully up to 50 free spins.

Once in, the expanding multiplier, known as the Unlimited Win Multiplier feature, is in play here too. It doesn’t reset following a losing cascade either. There’s no limit to how high this multiplier can go. You can also win an infinite number of additional free spins.

A classic Megaways video slot

Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways is just what we’ve come to expect from one of Blueprint Gaming’s Megaways releases. The visuals are nicely done and the gameplay offers some decent variety courtesy of the reel modifiers. It’s the free spins that offer the best opportunities thanks to the expanding multipliers.

As Megaways video slots go, this is very straightforward. If you liked the original Wish Upon a Leprechaun gam, then this updated version should offer some solid entertainment. It’s also a lot more rewarding potentially with possible wins of 50,000 times your bet on every free spin! If you want more Megaways action, Blueprint Gaming’s Kingmaker game would be my choice as it offers something different.
