Savvy players looking out for the best video slots available should take note of Leprechaun Carol, the holiday slot from Pragmatic Play.
This high-volatility yuletide title should come gift-wrapped: there are enough bonus features here to stuff players’ stockings many times over. Look for Nudging Scatters, Raining Wilds, the Pick a Fiddle Feature, Giant Wilds, Free Spins, and much more.
Everyone knows that Santa works with Elves. But in this Christmas title, the design team asks the question…
… what if they were leprechauns instead?
This slot is built by Pragmatic Play, a brand with complicated history. Though officially established in 2015, strong connections exist between this designer and the scandal-prone TomGame, which was launched in 2008, including the same owner for both companies. With that said, Pragmatic has won some major awards in recent years, so there’s clearly some substance here worth exploring.
Given those circumstances, we’ll allow the designers some leeway in mixing cultural metaphors here. The snowy reels are home to leprechauns, top hats, pipes, mugs of frosty beer, and the playing card values ace through ten. A winter rainbow acts as wild, substituting for other symbols to help form wins.
This game’s most important symbol, however…
… is the Pot of Gold scatter. When substituting for other symbols to form wins, this symbol can appear with win multipliers of 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x.
Betting Options and Functions
There are 20 fixed paylines, all paying from left-to-right. Coins bet per line can be set from 1–10, with coin value adjustable from 0.01–0.50: this yields an overall betting range of 0.20–100.00 times the betting currency.
Player options, payline information, game rules, and more are available via a pop-up menu. Autoplay can be engaged for up to 100 spins in a row, with optional win/loss limits available. Quick spin is also available for those who prefer a faster gaming tempo.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) comes in strong at 96.53%.
