Hit game provider Play ‘N Go have a theory, that if two genres are successful why not put them together? The story of a little leprechaun who takes a holiday (we shit you not) to Egypt and screws up the classic sights of the country with his mischievous powers. He paints the pyramids green, takes a mummy down the pub and rough up scarabs with hi pot of gold. Far-fetched, but quite fun, especially when he turns Cleopatra into a typical Irish gal! This is Leprechaun Goes Egypt.
Presented over the standard 5x3 setup with 20 paylines, there’s clearly no mischief going on with the format, as that’s quite safe. Available across your devices from as little as 0.20 EUR to 110 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent per spin, there is something for all budgets and tastes.
The bonuses of an odd match
There are three decent bonus features in the slot, the first to mention is the gamble feature. One to take care with but giving you the opportunity to gamble each win for a win or double scenario. We love them, can hurt the pocket somewhat.
The Rescue Cleopatra feature is very nice. Triggered when you get the Pyramid scatter across reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time, your mission is to rescue the legendary Egyptian queen by getting to the treasure chamber by means of picking the right doors. Each door hiding either a cash prize or a mummy, the latter signalling the end of the game. There is great potential for wins here though, with up the 500x your stake on offer.
The free spins feature is the crowd-puller here though, and we like it. Triggered when you get three or more of the Cleopatra scatters anywhere across the reels, you’ll then get five free spins from the monarch herself, each coming with a 6x multiplier. But it’s not only Cleo who can dish out the dosh, the leprechaun will give you ten free spins with a 3x multiplier and the mummy gives you 15 spins with a 2x multiplier.
If you’re looking for something a bit different and have a penchant for either of these themes, Irish or Egypt, then Leprechaun Goes Egypt may be the game for you. There are some nice bonuses and the offerings can be generous with persistence. The free spins round tends to pay similar amounts out no matter who triggers it for, which can be both comforting and boring and the same time. Our view? There are better Irish and Egyptian themed games, but this is the best mix of the two. Oh wait, it’s the only mix of the two, for a reason probably.
