Leprechaun Links Slot (Microgaming)

Leprechaun Links Slot (Microgaming)Microgaming has a new real money slot, this time titled Leprechaun Links and this game was developed for them by Slingshot Studios.

The title is not unusual for the Microgaming portfolio, not only because it features a leprechaun/Irish theme, but because it shares a number of elements with other games they've released in recent times.

It's a title that should be familiar to many gamers, which isn't always a good thing for people seeking adventure.

Here are all the details about the slot that you may be looking for:

Game Set-Up

Leprechaun Links has the usual 5 reels, and I discovered that I could use as many as 40 pay-lines to form winning combinations.

Among its many features, I found scatters, super-stacked symbols, Link & Win bonus feature, wilds, and free spins with multipliers.

Betting and Prizes

Spinning the reels of Leprechaun Links is not all that hard and with as little as $0.20 per spin, I was able to place some real money bets. The highest that you can use on this slot is $20 per spin.

Inside, a top prize of up to $25,000x the stake will be available, and depending on how much you bet, it could turn into $500,000 cash. Naturally, this is possible due to its extremely high volatility score.

Although the RTP is set to 96.20 %, casino operators may set it to a lower value, so you should consult them before you start a game.

Leprechaun Links Slot Features

The Leprechaun Wild is a fairly common feature in slot machines and one that is also easier to explain. You can trigger it to pay you by using it to form a five symbols combo. This way, you get a payout of up to 25x the stake.

Mostly though, the wild will serve as a substitute for the regular features, but not the scatter.

Additionally, a Power Stacks mechanic has been incorporated, which increases the player's chances of being paid by a randomly selected symbol. For every round, that random symbol gets the chance to land super-stacked, increases their appearance on the reels, thus increasing their odds of appearing on all active lines.

Additionally, you'll find the Link & Win respins here, as Microgaming prefers to call this feature. It begins with the arrival of more Coin scatters (at least six).

As the feature gets started, I received 3 respins and the triggering Coins were locked. You will then be allowed an opportunity to collect extra Coins, empty positions, or even jackpot coins.

When a new Coin lands and becomes sticky, it will reset the respins to 3. Eventually, you will either run out of respins or the reels will be completely filled with coins.

If you fill the reels, you can win up to 2,500 times your stake during paid spins, or up to 5,000 times your stake during free spins mode. Otherwise, you will receive the regular cash prizes associated with each coin or the smaller fixed jackpots associated with the special coins (if you got any).

I noticed that the slot’s maximum potential comes from the free spins, which are triggered when three or more scatter Clovers appear. Not only will you get 15 rounds in which you can create multiple winning combinations, but you will also get stacked wilds as well as a 2x multiplier on all wins (even those gotten during respins).

Theme & Design

I doubt that the game will be played solely for its theme; the story is clearly not that interesting. Most often, the Irish theme has included four-leaf clovers, leprechauns, and treasures, to name a few of the common icons in these types of games, and this title is no exception.

The slot's icons start with card suit symbols (low-paying)  and progress to pipes, beer, musical instruments, coin bags, and a pocket watch. Coins, clovers, and leprechaun are feature symbols.

Conclusion

Leprechaun Links may be a reasonable slot for many seasoned players, but from what I experienced playing it, I cannot call it a must-play slot machine.

It has several features that are common in other slots, and there is nothing unique about it.
