It is almost funny how media and popular culture has branded certain aspects of the world with certain others. One such example is that of Luck and the Irish, a combination that has heralded the likes of Leprechauns and Rainbows with pots of gold at the end. How it came to be is rather immaterial however, what matters here is that it is so and more importantly that it is the theme of this particular slot from Microgaming.
Lucky Leprechauns Loot has a great name to begin with, incorporating most every aspect of this slot into 3 simple words. The Irish theme works well in conjunction with the other thematic aspects involved like the symbols and sound effects. Both of which are very pro Irish. There is of course also a few bonuses, to spice up the base game and its jackpots.
Lucky Theme Choice and Reel Symbols
The ever-present aspect of lady luck is one that is constantly on the mind of players having a wager and so to incorporate it into a slot game is often a good move. Certainly one of the more popular of the slot machine themes, this is Microgaming’s attempt to employ something unique toward it. The backdrop shows a wide-open farmland with a big, colourful rainbow along the horizon. The rainbow has a very deliberate end to it in the backdrop suggesting towards the pot of gold undoubtedly waiting at the end.
The game symbols in Lucky Leprechauns Loot are understandably mostly luck and Irish related with the likes of Leprechauns, Irish Moccasins, bags of clover emblazoned coins and even a wishing well. There is also a range of playing card symbols, all done up in bright colours, that litter the reels for the lower valued wins.
The betting standard that is brought forth by Microgaming seems pretty solid in this slot once again, with a decent range of coin denomination and then number of coins. The 5 reels and 50 adjustable pay lines handles the rest of the betting aspects, and therefore enables players considerable depth.
Lucky Bonuses Included in this Slot
Lucky Leprechauns Loot is clearly quite well developed and laid out, competing with some of the very best Irish luck themed slots out there. The bonus features included therein also improve the situation and make for a generally more exciting affair. One such bonus feature is the Wild, which is the Golden Coin with a clover on it. This symbol can substitute as other symbols to help create additional winning combinations.
The Scatter bonus in this game is where things really get interesting and where players can find the free spins aspect of this slot. Represented by the Leprechaun symbol this Scatter triggers free spins and depending on how many Scatter symbols trigger it result in the number of free spins awarded, with the maximum of 25 for 5 symbols on the reels. These spins come included with a 3 times multiplier on wins during and so can actually be potentially lucrative. After these spins players can cash out, redo the free spins over or get a multiplier involved starting 2 times.
