Leprechaun Goes to Hell

Leprechaun Goes to Hell is a newly released game by Play ‘N Go. Like it’s predecessor, Leprechaun Goes to Egypt, the game follows the adventures of the diminutive, mythical Irish creature.

How to Play

Leprechaun Goes to Hell is a 5-reel slot, with 3 rows and 25 fixed paylines. Before spinning the reels you must first select your desired betting amount. The minimum bet is 25p, and the maximum is £5. You can choose to spin the reels manually each time, or use the autoplay option. The autoplay can be preset to spin anywhere from 10 to 50 spins, and you can set it to stop automatically if you win any free spins or one of the progressive jackpots.

The gameplay is the same as any regular 5-reel slot, all you need to do is match the symbols in a payline to form a winning combination. The symbols are:

  • Stones with engraved playing cards, 10 through Ace
  • A top hat, littered with bones and skulls
  • The Devil’s trident
  • The evil Evilene
  • The leprechaun
  • A vial of green potion
  • A bubbling cauldron, filled with gold coins
  • A Satanic pentagram emblazoned with a demonic skull

The pentagram, top hat, potion, and the trident provide larger payouts, and the stone playing cards are the lower paying symbols. Evilene and the leprechaun are both wild symbols, and they can both substitute for any other symbols in the game, except for the cauldron of gold coins, which is the scatter symbol.

Important symbols in Leprechaun Goes to Hell:

  • Wild: Evilene and the Leprechaun
  • Scatter: Cauldron of gold coins
  • High value symbols: Potion, trident, top hat, pentagram

Jackpots

Leprechaun Goes to Hell has 4 progressive jackpots. In order to win any of them, you need to first gain access into a bonus mini-game. This is done by landing 3 Evilene symbols on reels 2,3, and 4. The bonus round is played on a different slot with reels, and you’re given 10 free spins. At the side of the reels is a thermometer, which rises randomly and if it hits a certain point you will win one of the 4 jackpots.

If you’re used to the progressive jackpot slots with multi-million dollar payouts then you may be slightly disappointed with the jackpots in Leprechaun Goes to Hell. However, the jackpot can rise into the tens of thousands, which is still a great win, especially if you only bet a few pounds.

Leprechaun Goes to Hell is a medium volatility slot, the chances of winning the jackpot are pretty slim, but there are some great payouts in the regular gameplay. The RTP currently stands at 96.54%

Special Features and Bonuses:

  1. Wild Symbol Feature: As well as substituting for other symbols, the leprechaun wild symbol pays out massively if you land 5 in a single payline. In addition, if you create a winning combination using either the leprechaun or the Evilene wild symbol, a 2x multiplier will be applied.
  2. Free Spins Feature: This feature is triggered whenever 3 or more scatter symbols, (the cauldron of gold coins) land anywhere on the reels at the same time. When this happens you will be awarded 10 free spins, with a 2x multiplier attached.

Graphics and Sounds:

The game has a devil/hellish theme, and it’s set in the fiery pits of hell. The visuals and graphics can be a little frightening to some, all the symbols have a Satanic element, and the background displays the fires of hell burning strongly. Despite all this, the game has a mischevious and fun tone to it, the little leprechaun winks and whistles at you whenever you win, and the symbols are cartoonish.

The background music is fast and upbeat, and a guitar lick is played each time a wild lands.

Conclusion:

Leprechaun Goes to Hell is a great follow up to Leprechaun Goes to Egypt, and it’s good to see Play ‘N Go developing the series. It’s packed full of bonus features, and progressive jackpots slots always have an element of thrill and excitement. Setting the game in Hell is a bold move but it works really well, and creates an immersive gaming experience.
