Leprechaun Goes Wild slot review (Play’n GO)

playngo_leprechaun-goes-wild logo

Earlier Play’n GO already released Leprechaun Goes To Hell and Leprechaun Goes Egypt. The Swedish game developer thought it was time for another new video slot starring the small, green and permanently drunk Irish squeaky-voiced gnomes. As you may have guessed, we are not such fans of the genre.

Leprechaun Goes Wild is the umpteenth Leprechaun video slot, but this one is pretty darn cool

Building success is one thing, but continuing to milk out a popular concept, is starting to get a little annoying (to say the least), and it gets stale at some point.

Still, Leprechaun Goes Wild is not just a Leprechaun slot, considering the prizes these Leprechauns, apart from beer, run on steroids. You can net 10,000 x the total bet, and this slot features a free spins bonus with sticky wilds, but more on that below.


The RTP, Variance (volatility) & Maximum win of Leprechaun Goes Wild

The payout percentage is 96.1%, which is acceptable but not outstanding. We have seen Play n GO slots with higher RTP’s. It looks like the 2020 slots are getting lower RTP’s! Let’s hope it’s not a trend.

The maximum win is 10,000x the bet, which is pretty high and matches that of slots as The Sword and The Grail or Firefly Frenzy. Did you know that the max win of Book of Dead is 5,000x the total bet? Only half of the max win of this slot!

According to Play ‘n GO, the variance (volatility) of Leprechaun Goes Wild is high, whereas, in this genre, it is often low.

Leprechaun Goes Wild gameplay and features

This slot has a 5 x 4 setup and only 20 paylines instead of 40 or 50, you might expect.

In any case, you can make bets of $€ 0.20 up to $€ 100 per spin.leprechaun-goes-wild-slot-review-play-n-go-super-big-win

Symbols and payouts

There are two types of wilds in the game: the four-leaf clover, which also acts as a bonus scatter and the leprechaun itself.

Four-leaf clovers only hit reels 1, 3 and 5, but the leprechauns drop on all reels.

Five wilds on an active payline are worth 40 x the total bet.

The high paying symbols consist of a pot of gold (of course, yawn), a green top hat, a pipe, a pint of beer and a horseshoe. Every possible Irish cliché has been received with open arms by Play’n GO.

Spin 5 of the same symbols for a price between 20 x and 40 x the total bet. All card symbols (10, J, Q, K and A) yield 4 x the total bet in case of a 5-of-a-kind.

Mystery feature

Did you spin two four-leaf clovers? This will land you a mystery prize.

There are two possible prizes:

  • Five random wilds (this one drops most often).
  • One extra scatter, so you win the bonus round.

It goes without saying, especially the third scatter is very welcome.

Free spins bonus

You enter the free spins bonus if you manage to spin 3 four clovers (either directly or via the detour).

You can now spin a wheel for 7, 9, 11 or 13 free spins. If you spin the lowest number, don’t worry or start banging your head against the wall: it’s still possible to win extra free spins.

All wilds become sticky during the free spins, and one “wild line” (5 wilds on an active payline) awards you 40 x the total bet.

Can you get at least one wild on all reels? Then you win an extra spin at the free spins wheel for 3, 5, 7 or 9 additional free spins.

In total, you can win up to 13 + 9 = 22 free spins.

The setup resembles a bit the popular Dead or Alive bonus.


Our verdict on the Leprechaun Goes Wild slot?

We have a confession to make:

  1. We hate leprechaun slots with a passion (as if we did not give that away already?)
  2. In advance, we didn’t want to know this slot existed, let alone play it.

However, we always write independent slots and online casino reviews, and we’re pretty proud of that.

So even the hundred-thousandth leprechaun slot, with its jars of gold, squeaky, half-drunk gnomes and hysterical violin music, should be given a fair chance.

And you know what the fun part is? Leprechaun Goes Wild is not bad at all.

The slot game is unbalanced and sometimes downright irritating, but it can also reward you tremendously.

In combination with the possibility of winning extra spins, the sticky wilds can cause major fireworks during the free spins bonus.

A pot of gold can indeed appear for you at the end of the rainbow.

Leprechaun Goes Wild is undoubtedly not an online classic, but way better than we could have expected.
