When the emerald isle meets winter, there can only be one outcome and that is a festive feature to get you jigging through the snow. Pragmatic Play have developed a very interesting slot called Leprechaun Carol and its packed with gifts waiting for you to unwrap.
Leprechaun Carol is a 5-reel, 20 fixed pay line slot, offering an RTP to the tune of 96.53% for players. In the background is a snowy village scene which is home to the leprechauns and it is at the end of the rainbow, which hovers above the reels. There is the lucky leprechaun sat at the top left corner and he plays a role in triggering your features, so watch out for that. Symbols are all snow capped or in fitting with the general theme and include a festive leprechaun, a christmas hat, a pipe and a pint of Guinness as your higher value symbols. With lower value symbols being the usual A, K, Q, J and 10, nicely topped with snow. All the while a Christmas tune is tinkling along nicely, with the addition of a blast of a carol when the features trigger.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Leprechaun Carol begins at 20p per spin and can be adjusted up to the maximum of £100 per spin. To amend your bet amount, you can change your coin level or value and to do this you need to click on the plus or minus signs on either side of the spin button. Doing this will open the bet amount screen where you can change the amount, until you are happy with your bet.
Wild Symbol – A rainbow appearing over the word wild and lots of presents is your wild symbol in Leprechaun Carol. It substitutes for all other symbols except the pot of gold scatter. It will appear in all reels on both the base and bonus game and is your joint highest paying symbol, along with the leprechaun.
Scatter Symbol – As legend tells it there is a pot of gold awaiting at the end of the rainbow. Here in Leprechaun Carol the pot of gold is your scatter symbol and will lead finders to the bonus round. It will only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 and landing three scatters on these reels will trigger the bonus game.
