‘Going somewhere warm this year Mr Leprechaun?’ ‘As a matter of fact, I am!’ Leprechaun goes to Hell is powered by Play ‘N Go, who seem to love sending their little mischievous Irish men off to hot destinations to wreak havoc. Only this time they have surpassed themselves and sent him to the ultimate hot destination: hell. But is this the pinnacle of hot leprechaun adventures, or have they peaked too early?
Presented over the classic 5x3 reels setup with a standard 25 paylines, this slot takes you on a journey to the fires of hell with a Leprechaun. Yep, things have gotten that bad. Playable across all of your devices with a minimum bet of 0.30 EUR and a relatively small max of 5 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent per spin.
Looks warm where you are
The graphics are up to standard and depict the theme fairly well, the symbols across the reels depict Evilene the wicked she-devil, the obligatory Leprechaun, bubbling potions, melting pots of gold and pentagrams. The soundtrack first appears to be an odd juxtaposition, but then it becomes clear that this could be exactly what might play in hell – flute-based Irish folk music at what seems like max volume.
The wilds come in the form of both Evilene and the Leprechaun, substituting for all other reels symbols to form wins, except for the scatter of course. Get these two as part of a winning combo and see you win double.
Hellish bonuses to enjoy
Frees pins is the classic here, triggered by getting three ‘pots of gold’ scatters anywhere across the reels. You’ll get ten free spins with a 2x multiplier. Three more scatters during this feature will bring a further ten free spins and push the multiplier up to 4x. You can do this several times to achieve 50 free spins and a 10x multiplier.
The Infernal Bonus feature is triggered by getting three Evilene symbols anywhere across the reels. You’ll get ten ‘Infernal’ spins, better than normal spins of course. A heart symbol on reel three will give you an extra Infernal spin, and you can do this up to 50 times if you’re lucky enough. The leprechaun become the wild during this feature and pushes your chances further.
So, why are Infernal spins better? Well, the game will change completely, into a three-reel slot machine with five fixed paylines and progressive jackpots. Winning combos will increase the temperature on the thermometer, the higher the temperature, the bigger the one of four possible jackpots will be. The more you stake on this the better your chances of winning some serious cash will be.
Leprechaun Goes To Hell is an exciting game, if a little confusing sounding at first. Medium variance puts it in a great place for those wanting to have a dabble with slots, and the relatively low stakes per spin supports this positioning. Play “N Go never fail to make slots that look great, feels nice to play and leave you with something in you pocket at least. It’s worth it just for the four jackpots to be honest.
