Irish folklore is very popular among the game developers, who often draw inspiration from the tales coming from the Emerald Isle. Apart from the Shamrock, which is also the symbol of Ireland, one of the first associations of Ireland are mythical beings called Leprechauns, who are told to have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
However, there is no rainbow in this Play ‘N Go title, because the little green rascal is going down under – and we don’t mean Australia. You’ll find the pot of gold on the transparent reels, set against the fires of Hell. As if it weren’t hot enough, a devilette called Evilene will make it even hotter. You’ll definitely enjoy the game’s soundtrack, which combines rock music with Irish tunes.
Leprechaun Goes to Hell is one of the latest titles launched by the Sweden-based developer Play’n Go. The company, founded in 1997, has a vast experience in creating high quality content and today is one of the biggest names in the market.
Play’n GO titles boast outstanding graphics, animations and sound that gives a high quality player experience. In addition to that, the Swedish developer has a complete mobile and tablet offering as a part of one of the strongest mobile casinos out there.
How to Play
This is a five-reel three row video slot with 25 fixed paylines, paying left to right, except when it comes to Scatters, which pay any. The game’s playing panel is very clean, consisting of Paytable and Auto Play buttons on the left, the Spin button on the right, while in the middle you’ll be able to select your wager. The betting can be as low as $0.25, while the maximum bet can’t exceed $5.
The gameplay is very smooth, with exquisite graphics and top-notch animations. On the reels you’ll encounter beautifully drawn symbols, featuring a bottle of poison, a pitchfork, a top hat, a pentagram, Evilene and our cheeky Leprechaun and, of course, the famous pot of gold. Three of a kind are needed to start getting payouts, while only two symbols featuring Evilene and Leprechaun will be enough to do the job.
There’s so much on offer if you’re lucky enough. First of all, the game features two Wild symbols, represented by Evilene and the Leprechaun himself. As usual, they can substitute for all other symbols, except the Scatter. They make a good couple, since the win gets doubled If they are a part of the same payline win.
The pot of gold is the Scatter, and at least three of them on the reels trigger the Free Spins feature, awarding 10 spins and multiplying all wins by 2. Retrigger the feature by landing additional three or more Scatter, which can increase the multiplier up to a total of 10x.
Three Evilene symbols activate the Infernal Bonus game. While this feature is on, the Leprechaun will still act as a Wild, while the Heart symbol will give additional Infernal spin whenever it lands on the reels. The higher your bet is, the more the temperature increases and with that so does your chance to win the top jackpot or up to $50,000.
In order to get the maximum payout, simply land five Wild symbols and you’ll get the coin win equalling 120x your wager. But remember, if both game’s Wilds are a part of the same payline win, your winnings will be doubled.
The Scatter may not be as generous as the Wilds, but it will still get you a win worth 50x your stake if five of a kind land on the reels. Free Spins feature can also be very lucrative, especially if you manage to increase the multiplier to 10x.
Leprechaun Goes to Hell is definitely a title worth checking out. Stunning visuals, smooth gameplay and the prospect of winning substantial sums of money are appealing enough to give it a try.
This a medium variance title, bringing well-balanced payouts and an RTP of 96.54%. The game’s features offer the opportunity to grab serious cash, so you definitely won’t need a rainbow to get that pot of gold. The Leprechaun is all that you need.
