Things are certainly heating up with Play n Go's pokie named 'Leprechaun Goes to Hell'. This somewhat crudely created video pokie takes everything you thought you knew about leprechauns and turns them on their head, as the conventionally jolly green Irish man takes a trip to hell. Read our full review below.
Leprechauns are typically associated with luck and Irish fortune. You may have seen images of them depicted with their brimming pots of gold at the end of a rainbow, with cheeky little grins upon their red-bearded faces. This portrayal of a leprechaun couldn't be any more different from that which you're used to in the stories you've read. To begin, you're met with a rushing inferno, and distorted guitars playing over a traditional sounding Irish folk song upon opening up this pokie. The occasional screams of the damned also accompany the soundtrack, adding to the atmosphere. It could be considered exciting in a sense - you know, if you're into that sort of thing...
This Play n Go pokie consists of 5 reels, and 25 paylines. All wins pay from left to right, which is standard, except for the scatter symbols which will pay out regardless of where they appear on the reels. Stakes can be adjusted between $0.25 and $5 per bet, meaning this game offers somewhat modest bets for you to play with. That's not a sign you shouldn't give it a go, however, as there is the possibility to win up to 250,000 coins which is certainly far from modest!
Symbols consist of what the game providers surely considered to be typically 'hellish'. A top hat with bones adorning the brim, a pentagon symbol, a sharpened pitchfork with a skull engraved onto it. There are also the special symbols which are the pot of gold scatter symbols, 'Evilene' and of course the leprechaun himself who substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter. The entire game is full of tenuous links between Irish folklore and hell, and is certainly one of a kind in that respect. Overall, however, it's the fact the game doesn't take itself seriously that provides the main source of entertainment behind it.
Triggering three of the devlish lady 'Evilene' symbols anywhere on the board will begin the bonus game. During this round, a progressive jackpot can be won if you're particularly lucky. There are four potential progressive jackpots of varying 'heats', which the damned leprechaun will stoke the flames of by shovelling coal into the furnace. Each of these jackpots has increasing value - so best hope that little guy keeps shovelling! It seems the two main characters go hand in hand as this symbol also doubles any wins when appearing on the same payline as the leprechaun symbol.
