Play ‘N Go’s Leprechaun Goes Wild Slot Review

Leprechaun goes Wild: Demo

Simple, volatile Irish fortune is what you’ll find in Leprechaun Goes Wild, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Play ’N Go. Landing 2 scatters on the same spin triggers the Luck of the Irish bonus which adds extra wilds to each reel or triggers the free spins round. Also available by landing 3 scatters naturally, you can look forward to between free spins with sticky wilds. As usual for a Play ’N Go slot, the variance here is high. Stakes start at 20p and rise to £100 per spin.

Typical Irish luck design

This is just what you’d expect a slot called Leprechaun Goes Wild to look like. With a green field in the background and enclosed in a Celtic-style wooden frame, you’ll find A to 10 symbols alongside a glass of beer, a pipe and a green hat. The pot of gold is the best standard symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 in combination and you’ll pocket 2, 4 or 20 times your total bet.

Wilds galore

The lucky leprechaun is the wild. Each reel features the leprechaun in its own special pose. This is just cosmetic though. They all substitute for all the standard symbols and can combine to create lines of wilds which can deliver payouts of 3, 6 or 40 times your total bet. The 4-leaf clover is a second wild. It also acts as the game’s scatter

Luck of the Irish feature

If you hit 2 scatters on the same spin, you’ll trigger the Luck of the Irish feature. 1 of the following 2 modifiers is then awarded:

  • Extra Wild – 1 extra wild is added to all 5 reels.
  • Extra Scatter – 1 extra scatter is awarded to trigger the free spins.

Free spins with sticky wilds

You can trigger the Free Spins feature naturally by landing 3 scatters on the same spin or via the Luck of the Irish extra. Either way, you can look forward to 7, 9, 11 or 13 free spins. The scatters are missing from this round.

Hope to see plenty of wilds though as, when 1 hits, it locks in place for any free spins you have left. If you have a sticky wild on all 5 reels, you’ll get a re-trigger and can benefit from up to 9 more free spins – taking your potential total 22.

Straightforward but volatile

There’s nothing complicated about Leprechaun Goes Wild. That’s true of both the design and the gameplay which are nice and straightforward. You wouldn’t really expect anything else from a slot with this theme. As usual for a Play ’N Go slot, this is a high risk, high reward proposition.

The most you can win is 800 x bet on each spin or free spin – the likelihood increases in the Free Spins feature due to the presence of sticky wilds. The RTP is 96.2% is which decent. As mentioned, as like most of the developer’s slots, it very volatile.

If you like simple features and high variance action, then that’s just what’s on offer in Leprechaun Goes Wild. Honestly speaking, it doesn’t offer anything we haven’t already seen before (multiple times) – Play ‘N Go fortunately has a wide range of games to play with Wild Blood 2 and Trolls Hunters 2 much better options (and much bigger top wins).
