ABOUT GOLDEN LEPRECHAUN MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
Red Tiger was one of the first slot companies to sign up for Big Time Gaming’s Megaways™ license agreement. They haven’t been very productive, producing only a fraction of the number of releases that rivals Blueprint have accomplished in 2019. (this will be just their third release). Nonetheless, Red Tiger is becoming as a force to be reckoned with, having transitioned from a pretty middle-of-the-road game production to more dangerous, high-variance fare, which began with the debut of their own expanding reels slot, Laser Fruit, in 2018. As a result, The Slot Buzz has added their releases in early September of 2019.
Although Irish themes and MegawaysTM may seem conventional in terms of slots, Red Tiger has done something to make this one stand out and make it more than just another Bonanza clone, notably by including three bonus features in the main game. In addition, Megaways™ aficionados may look forward to a heady combination of free spins and multipliers in the bonus round.
The thrills start at $0.10 and go up to $40 each spin.
Symbols, Gameplay, and Pay Tables
Red Tiger has always been strong on aesthetics and artwork, even back when they were making Oriental-themed slot games, and Golden Leprechaun is no exception. With hot air balloons in the backdrop, the reel set floats in a sky full with clouds and rainbows. The reels are mounted on a rustic green wooden frame with lush vegetation wrapping around the perimeter.
This slot has 117,649 ways to win, which means there are six reels with two to seven rows per reel. The game also has the popular cascading winnings technique with endless progressive multipliers.
The cards, from 10 to Ace, are the lower value symbols. The Guinness glasses, notebooks, red rosettes, and four leaf clovers are the premium insignia. Rosettes are the most valuable of all the symbols, paying out 50 times for six on a payline.
Wilds may also be found as part of the three base game features as well as on the reels. Except for the scatters, these symbols will replace for all other symbols in the game.
Features of Golden Leprechaun Megaways
As a result, Red Tiger has added three random features to the main game, which are triggered when our leprechaun pal appears in front of the reels after any spin. When he does, gamers are given the option of revealing one of three mushrooms:
Lucky Ways– a GUARANTEED victory based on a random transformation of symbols.
Up to five wilds are added on the reels at random.
Wilds Stacks – up to four reels can go wild, resulting in multipliers of up to 7x. Multipliers stack, so a 7x multiplier on 4 reels equals a 28x multiplier on your prize.
Then there’s the famous Megaways Free Spins round, which awards anything from six to twenty free spins depending on how many scatters you land to activate it. A minimum of three scatters is necessary, and any further scatters during the game will provide you with additional spins.
During your free spins, the cascading winnings function will be active, and with each victory, a progressive multiplier will grow by 1x (fans of Bonanza and other similar games will be familiar with this), giving you the possibility to go closer to that 10,000x maximum prize!
THE VERDICT OF THE SLOT BUZZ
Golden Leprechaun will please Megaways aficionados; it doesn’t veer too far from the Bonanza paradigm, but it does have a few more tricks in its sleeve to keep things fresh, and as a Red Tiger slot, it’s gorgeously designed with sleek artwork, animations, and gameplay. To summarize: It’s not the finest Megaways slot of all time, but it stands head and shoulders above the others.
