Widely respected iGaming developer Play’n GO have unveiled their latest creation; Leprechaun Goes Wild. The new pokie is a high volatility game and is set in the welcoming Irish countryside. But players should be on the lookout for the titular character; a mischievous, cigar smoking folklore creature that is nothing short of eccentric. Reel spinning enthusiasts will likely recognise this creature. It is, in fact, the third time that the Leprechaun has made an appearance in a Play’n Go game.
He was first seen in the classic Leprechaun Goes to Egypt in 2013. He then made a second, comedic appearance in Leprechaun Goes to Hell in 2016. Now, he is back, and more mischievous than ever in Leprechaun Goes Wild.
But will he still be a player’s best friend, despite his rather mischievous appearance?
Leprechaun Goes Wild features a 5-reel, 4 row grid with 20 fixed paylines. In terms of graphics, it goes all out in bringing back the Leprechaun character, but with higher quality HD visuals than ever before. But now it seems that the Leprechaun has joined a movement called the Rainbow Revolution, and he is looking for support. If the player signs up to be part of the revolution, rewards are sure to follow, coming in the form of huge pots of gold.
As the pokies name suggests, the Leprechaun symbol acts as the game’s Wild. Each reel has its own dedicated, unique Leprechaun, and all are ready to shake things up and help with more winning combinations, more often. The high symbols featured are all taken from classic Irish folklore, including a top hat, a horseshoe, a mug of ale, a pot of gold and a wooden pipe. The low symbols are the classic 10, J, Q, K and A.
Big Wins Await
But what pokies players will really want to know is how to get their hands on that elusive pot of gold. The answer is simple; the Scatter. The Scatter can trigger Leprechaun Goes Wild’s two bonus features; Extra Spins, and the Luck of The Irish. Needless to say, either of the bonuses all but guarantee a payout that may just make the Leprechaun himself blush.
Chief Executive Officer at Play’n GO, commented on the release of the game. He explained that it was always challenging to reuse a well-loved character, and that the company’s latest pokies release had been no different. He stressed that the studio had focused on putting the familiar face in a new situation, thereby playing to nostalgia, but also presenting something truly new and interesting.
