If you would decide to make a top 3 of the most common themes that a slot machine could have, I’d place a big wager that one of those would be the Irish and their luck. It’s what we’re seeing once again, with Leprechaun Hills slot, a release that’s coming from Quickspin. The theme is related to all things Irish, and it seems to check every box on the list, from the leprechaun to the four leaf clover.
The player that does give this slot a try, will find that it offers 5x4 reels, with 40 bet lines fixed for each of its rounds. Its payouts will reach $2,000 for those that are truly lucky. There are also some good features to check out, which provide you with Lucky Respins, wilds, scatters, massive stacked symbols and Rainbow Free Spins.
Betting and Prizes
With 40 bet lines used, the betting system has a bit of a weird starting point, since it begins from a minimum value of $0.24, so each one gets only $0.006. At its maximum value, of $80, the wager uses $2 for each of the 40 bet lines.
Getting the top prize is a matter of simply having the right combo of regular symbols present on one of the lines, while using the highest allowed wager. You could be winning $2,000 that way. I found the game to be a promising one, despite the lack of originality in theme selection, mostly because the average RTP is at 96.51%.
Leprechaun Hills Slot Features
Should a symbol marked Leprechaun Hills Wild appear on an active line, there is a chance that it will contribute to the formation of a new combination. The wild can behave as any of the regular symbols, and so you can have a combo formed with one or more wilds, as long as they have regular symbols as well next to them and they all align from left to right. The wild is not allowed to substitute for the bonus scatter.
A more interesting and unusual feature is the one called Lucky Respin. You trigger one when you have a win in which a medium symbol is a part of. The respin will involve massive stacks of the symbol that contributed to the feature’s start.
One final feature, on which you can count on in Leprechaun Hills, involves the symbol with the Bonus Pot of Gold. Being used as a scatter, this symbol will deliver 7 Rainbow Free Spins to you, as long as you have three such images on the columns 2, 3 and 4. As for the special feature that comes with it, it’s a Rainbow mystery symbol that can be turned into a medium symbol of any kind.
Theme & Design
The game’s name is accurate enough, and you’re going to notice both the green rolling hills that are typical of an Irish slot machine, and the leprechaun that has a big role on the reels, where it awards the slot’s top payout. The rest of the symbols that are shown inside are mostly typical for the Irish theme, and they range from the toadstool, to a four leaf clover, a pot of gold, a pint of beer, a rainbow and a lucky horseshoe. Even the card symbols get a Celtic style of design in them, so they feel like they sort’ of belong inside.
Leprechaun Hills attempts to make itself liked with the help of features, since I’m not sure how many fans it would get with the help of its theme.
