Lucky Leprechaun is one of several online slots games based on the old Irish tale of the leprechauns. According to this folklore, a leprechaun is a little old man with a beard and a penchant for mischief and practical jokes.
Leprechauns are considered lucky charms because, as the legend goes, they hide pots of gold at the end of rainbows and if a person could just find the end of the rainbow they would be able to claim this gold as theirs. Furthermore, should a person actually capture a leprechaun they would offer them three wishes in return for their release.
Lucky Leprechaun Online Slots game is based on this folklore and the slot fulfills the stereotype of a lucky leprechaun by featuring a little man wearing a green hat and coat and with a ginger beard and pointy ears. This leprechaun will whistle at you loudly if you don’t manage to hit the spin button fast enough between spins.
The music in the Lucky Leprechaun is a traditional Irish jig and keeps the tempo upbeat while you are playing the pokies game. There are 5 reels and 30 paylines, although you do not necessarily have to play with all 30 of the lines.
