Enter the enchanted forest for an encounter with a golden leprechaun on the Megaways slot from Red Tiger Gaming. After releasing the game exclusively to UK bookmaker Paddy Power, the developer has renamed the original version for general release. Gameplay, features and payouts are exactly the same. It comes with three random features and a Lucky Spins round that can lead to wins in excess of 10,000 times your bet.
Golden Leprechaun Megaways is a cascading video slot with six reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. The game engine will randomly select on every spin between two and seven symbols for each of the six reels, creating any number of ways to win from 324 up to the maximum. Wins are awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right only. The symbols from a winning combination explode to make room for new symbols to cascade into place. The chain reaction will continue as long as a new winning combination occurs after a cascade.
Your journey to the Emerald isle on any desktop or mobile device will cost you 0.10 to 40 credits per spin. The game has maximum variance (10/10) with an RTP of 95.72%.
We all know what to expect from an Irish themed slot. Lush greenery, enchanted forests, sunshine, 4-leaf clovers and of course a leprechaun. All and more are included in the graphics of this game while typical Irish symbols populate the reels. A traditional soundtrack accompanies the usual reel and win count noises.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 9 through to A, followed by pints of Guinness, the leprechaun’s diary, 4-leaf clovers and champions’ ribbons. Hit six across the reels to win 0.9x to 50x your stake. A golden icon marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular symbols. while a Lucky Spins icon acts as the scatter on this slot.
Keep the lucky leprechaun on your side as he is key to hitting mega wins on the game. He will jump randomly onto the screen and offer you a choice of three mushrooms, each hiding a random feature with a reel modifier for the current spin.
Hitting three or more scatters in a single spin will trigger the Lucky Spins bonus round with one random feature and an unlimited win multiplier. The game will award a number of free spins ranging from 6 to 20 based on how many scatters landed on the triggering spin. During the round, any three scatters will award +5 free spins with every additional scatter on the same spin adding an extra +5 free spins.
Before the round starts, the leprechaun will present you again with the three mushrooms. You can make one pick to unveil which of the random features will trigger with a significantly increased frequency throughout the feature. And there is the typical Megaways win multiplier, starting at x1 and increasing by x1 after each winning reaction, no limits.
The game was initially announced under the title Golden Leprechaun Megaways but just two weeks later Red Tiger changed it to Paddy Power Gold Megaways to have it exlusively delivered for the UK bookmaker for a limited period. It looks now like that period is over and we all get to enjoy a solid Megaways game with ample features, high win potential and maximum volatility.
