The Leprechaun’s Luck slot from Bet on Soft is one based around the Luck of the Irish, featuring the Leprechaun of course, alongside a harp, a pint of Guinness and a pot of Gold. The game features a free spin bonus round, an original bonus feature and a particularly large progressive Jackpot.
In this review I examine all of the features of this big money slot. I start with an explanation of the basics of the game, including the options and the pay table. I move onto explain the two bonus features within the game and then look at which devices you’ll be able to enjoy the game. The review finishes with a summary of the game and a recommendation of an online casino where you’ll be able to enjoy this slot.
Leprechaun’s Luck Slot – Basics
Behind the dancing Leprechaun, the rainbows and the lucky mushrooms, you have something of a basic 5 reel slot game. This game features 20 win lines, and this is set, so you’ll not be able to play just a selection of these lines. The minimum stake per line is just a penny, with the maximum being £5, making each spin cost between 20p and £100. The wins are paid when landing consecutive symbols from left to right, with the top prizes being paid out for hitting five in a row although all symbols will also pay out for hitting 3 or more in a row. The game has an auto play feature where you’ll be able to set the game to play automatically, although each additional spin requires another click, instead of simply clicking a pre-set number, which is a little annoying. You’ll also be able to change the background colour of the slot to black, purple or green, although the white colour does work best.
The top symbol in the game is the ‘Leprechaun’s Luck’ which pays out 10,000 coins when landing all 5, although perhaps more importantly it also acts as the ‘wild’ symbol, enabling more overall wins. The harp, the pint of Guinness and the lucky mushrooms are the next most valuable symbols and are joined by the playing cards from 10 to Ace.
Leprechaun’s Luck Bonus Features
The first bonus feature is the ‘free spins’ bonus. This is activated by hitting the ‘Leprechaun’ scatter symbol three times across all the reels. You’ll see the Leprechaun award a random number of free spins and then dance across the slot, turning some symbols into wild ones, which will be locked for the entire duration of the free spins round.
You’ll also find a ‘wishing well’ symbol which only appears on the middle reel. This will activate the second feature – the ‘wishing well’ bonus. You’ll see a bucket being lowered into the well which will collect prizes on its way down. If you reach the bottom of the well and find gold you’ll be awarded the progressive bonus, which at time of writing exceeded £25,000 – making landing this feature particularly exciting.
The final bonus feature is the ‘Rainbow of Wealth’ bonus game which is activated by landing the ‘pot of gold’ scatter symbol three times across all the reels. Here you’ll be taken to a screen featuring a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow featuring ever growing prizes as you move closer to the gold. You’ll spin a dial which will advance you a number of steps towards the gold, but if you land on ‘collect’ you’ll stop. Light up all the colours of the rainbow on the dial and you’ll win the progressive jackpot!

Leprechaun’s Luck Summary
At first glance, this slot is not one that sets the pulse racing, however first impressions are not always right and this is certainly the case with this slot. The more you play, the more you’ll want to play and the bonus features definitely draw you in. Many slots offer Jackpots that are randomly awarded, but in this game the Jackpots are part of the features, making these bonus features some of the best I’ve found online. This is a slot that I would recommend, even though it might not look like a killer game on first view.
