Leprechaun Goes Egypt slot review
Oh joy – one of my favourite recent online slots has made a seamless transition over to the mobile format. If you’ve ever dreamed of Playtech’s Irish-themed slot, Plenty O’Riches, and the classic IGT Egyptian-themed game, Cleopatra, hopping into bed together and producing the kind of lovechild slots developers adore, you’re in luck.
Slots developer Play'n Go’s mental mash-up, Leprechaun Goes Egypt, which cleverly takes care of two sets of online worlds – leprechauns and, erm, Egypt – is now at a tablet near you.
On the Reels...
In this 5 reel, 15 payline slot, the music is a mix of Egyptian flutes and Irish whistles, while the icons mash up the imagery too. While we get buxom Cleopatras, mummies, scarab beetles and Tutenkhamen masks, you also get Celtic-themed 10-through-Ace symbols.
Win 3,000x Your Line Bet
What’s great about hitting a winning combination on the reels is the animated sequence you get when you hit – the mummy starts drinking a pint of Guinness, the leprechaun slips on some shades, etc. As with all great Celtic-tinged slots, the leprechaun acts Wild, substituting for all regular symbols other than the Scatters. He doubles all winning combo he helps form, and five Wilds awards a rather tasty jackpot of 3,000x your line bet.
Earn up to 15 Free Spins and a 6x Multiplier
Free spins, meanwhile, are awarded when you hit three Guinness maiden Scatters across the reels (in fact, it’s just Cleopatra in a neat Irish disguise). As with many Play'n Go slots, there’s a choice of free spins amounts – pick from 5 spins and a 6x multiplier, 10 spins with a 3x multiplier, or 15 spins with wins doubled.
Find Cleopatra to Trigger 500x Your Total Bet
Three pyramid symbols, meanwhile, triggers the bonus feature, a neat little Pick ‘em Bonus where our plucky leprechaun has to journey through the pyramid to find Cleopatra. Work your way through the levels picking doors, and pick up cash prizes on the way. Encounter a mummy, however, and your go will end. A nice jackpot of 500x your total bet can be won in the bonus round.
Cleopatra slots are popular everywhere, and Irish-themed games are well-known to offer plenty o’ riches if you’re lucky enough. With some slick animation, a nice sense of humour and a couple of generous bonus rounds, Play'n Go are onto a winner.
