Leprechaun Song, a title produced by Pragmatic Play, is a great example of a slot that is completely and totally feature-based. This differs from games that focus more on just getting value from the regular pay table. While this game's pay table does offer a good range of pays, the real action comes from the variety of features that pop up and offer something new and exciting on a regular basis.
Because this game is based on a leprechaun motif, you'll find that getting lucky at the right time will lead to a metaphorical pot of gold in the form of some serious payouts and padding to your account balance.
Layout and Format
Five vertical reels of symbols along with three horizontal rows gives players a grid that has 20 paylines running across it for this slot. The paylines cannot be changed and are static in place, but we think 20 is a good balance between having enough to keep things exciting without there being so many that it's just ridiculous to keep up with.
Betting centers around choosing two options: the number of coins per line and the values of those coins. You can pick from one to ten coins on each of the available paylines, but you'll also have the option to choose coin values that range from $0.01 at the lower end to $0.50 at the upper end. The result of this is that the minimum wager is $0.20 per spin, but you can actually bet up to $100 per turn as well, and there are a whole lot of options in between to help you really get down to the bet size that you want.
Wild Rainbow Symbols and Payouts
The significance of the wild rainbow symbol is that, in Irish lore, there's a pot of gold waiting at the end of a rainbow for whoever can find it. Of course, you can never actually get to the end of a rainbow in real life, but in this slot, the rainbows are wild symbols that pay out some pretty good prizes. Five of a kind is worth 40x, and you can still pick up 20x for four of a kind. A 5x win is yours for three, and two of a kind still gets you a 0.2x payout. This symbol obviously appears on all five reels.
Golden Pot of Gold
In an effort to really double up on the gold motif, they have made the scatter symbol a golden pot full of gold coins. It shows up on the first, third and fifth reels only, but it does not give payouts. Instead, it only triggers a randomly chosen bonus feature.
One option is the free spins picked feature which gives you at least 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier with boots to your number of free spins, multipliers and chances for other symbols to turn wild. The coin collector is a set of 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier where all scatters are collected to give players better multipliers worth up to 6x. Finally, you can get a free spins mode with giant symbols of a size of 3x3 that make it much easier to get a lot of winning combinations at the same time.
Other instant bonus features are available on random spins along these same lines as well.
The leprechaun himself gets players 20x for five of a kind, and he also pays for just two of a kind or more. You can win 15x for five of his green hat, and five of the pip is worth 12.5x. Players who are able to get five of the beer symbol are rewarded with an 11x win, and it drops just slightly to 10x for five of the purple A or red K symbols.
The bottom end of the pay table is pretty reasonable. The yellow Q gives players 7.5x for five of a kind, and you can make it 5x for five of the blue J or green 10 symbols as well.
A lot of games use this type of Irish theme, but the Leprechaun Song slot by Pragmatic Play is able to stand out in the sub-genre because of all of the features. You have several ways to win a variety of different types of bonus features, including three different free spins bonus rounds, on every single spin, which makes this an exciting, feature-based title.
