Leprechauns have a starring role in many modern pokies, not least of which is Rainbow Riches from Barcrest, which dominated online and offline casinos for a number of years. Microgaming have revolutionized this old-time classic though, creating Lucky Leprechaun, which takes the best bits from Rainbow Riches, adds a few extra features and improved the overall aesthetic.
To try this game out for yourself, pay a visit to Royal Vegas Casino, to learn what we thought of it, read our review below.
There are some big hitting symbols in this pokie, including the leprechaun himself. The one that returns the most is the wild symbol, and if you land 5 of these on a single payline then you’ll get a 50x return on your stake.
The graphics are a sharper, more polished version of Rainbow Riches, but it is still a little short of a 3D spectacle.
There is a minimum bet of just $0.20 on this pokie, which works out at $0.01 per payline, and this goes all of the way to $20 per spin, which is $1 per payline. All stake levels will qualify for the features discussed below, but obviously the more you stake, the more you stand to win.
The main feature on Lucky Leprechaun is similar to the main feature on Rainbow Riches. You have to take the leprechaun on a journey, following a long and winding path that has wins every step of the way and a huge jackpot at the end. In fact, you can pickup 1,000x your stake if you make it all of the way to the end, although this is as rare as the size of the jackpot would suggest. To advance you need to spin a wheel, which will either send you forward a few steps and allow you to spin again, or will end your journey there and then.
As big fans of Rainbow Riches, we were delighted to see Microgaming’s attempt, and were very impressed with the end result.
