You’ll find something wonderfully familiar about the Lucky Leprechaun mobile slot. Yes you’ve seen this before, but it’s still got it’s own unique Microgaming twist.
There’s one Irish themed slot machine that’s so very incredibly popular, it beats all others. That would be IGT’s Rainbow Riches slot of course, found in pubs all over the world.
Playtech made their own version, namely the well done Plenty O’Fortune slot game. And so it would only be logical that Microgaming would do their very own version, free spins and gold trail included.
With Guinness, pipes, clover leaf and ace to 10 symbols drawn with a celtic design, this is truly as Irish as it gets.
But let’s be honest, we’re not playing this video slot in order to start irish dancing to the sweet little tunes, we’re playing because this is a Rainbow Riches copy.
Yet the Lucky Leprechaun slot already has two things that IGT’s machine didn’t. For one, you get stacked wild symbols, which provide some good opportunities to get a few good wins during the base game.
For two you get free spins. And unusual ones at that.
All you need is one bonus symbol on reel 5 and you’ll get 5 free spins and a 2x multiplier. However every time a little green clover shows up on one of the reels, you’ll get an extra free spin.
Meaning you’ll end up, usually, with at least 8 to 10 free spins. Sometimes you’ll get a gold clover and you’ll get an extra multiplier (up to 5x). That’s less likely, mostly you’ll stay at 2x, maybe sometimes 3x multiplier.
But, we have to admit, because of the large wins you can get on the slots free spin games, it’s not as enticing as Rainbow’s.
Oh there’s a gold pot at the end, which can pay up to 1,000 times your bet if you trigger it with 5 bonus symbols, but it never feels as close as when you play with these free spins spins and you get a little lucky clover here and there.
Still, either bonus feature will allow you to walk away with at least 30 times your bet, and both hide their own pot of gold. Just budget carefully for a good 200 spins, as this Lucky Leprechaun slot game can be as unforgiving as the morning after a Guinness binge.
But if you’re willing to dance with the leprechaun in order to follow that rainbow… sometimes the occasional headache is worthwhile, all for the hope of catching that golden pot.

Wilds: The Lucky Leprechaun slot logo is wild and comes stacked across both the base game and the free spins. It replaces all other symbols except the bonus symbols.
Trail o' Fortune: 3, 4, or 5 pots of gold symbols anywhere on the five reels trigger the trail o' fortune bonus click me game.
Here you'll get 4, 5 or 6 spins of the dice where you'll move along the trail by 1 to 5 squares. Each square has an amount you'll potentially win, and is richer if triggered by more symbols.
When triggered by 3 symbols, the pot at the end of the rainbow is at 500 times your bet. When triggered with 5 symbols, the pot sits at a stormy 1,000 times your total bet.
You can also get a bonus spin if you discover the hidden emerald in the reels. i.e. if Microgaming decides to give you an extra go because... why not?
Free Spin Games: Get the 4 leaf clover on reel five and you'll get 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
The wilds are still stacked, but the highest paid symbol is now also wild, giving you extra chances for more wins.
The great thing is that on the symbols you can get little green or gold clover symbols. The green gets you more free spins, the gold gets you extra multipliers, up to 5x.
Another hit from Microgaming, we can easily see ourselves coming back to enjoy this Lucky Leprechaun mobile slot.
It's probably helped by the fact that we do love to play on mobile slot games that have a little bit of the luck o' the irish to them, but mostly it's because it takes a great template and improves on it.
Great theme, a well balanced game, and some great wins all rolled in one bright happy slot machine.
