The lush lawns of a mystical landscape set the scene for what could be a very intriguing online casino spectacle for many a player. Welcome to Leprechaun’s Magic Megaways, where a cheeky little fellow is providing all sorts of mischievous situations flowing with winning possibilities. These are coming from a Megaways reel system, as well as a bonus wheel that is your vehicle to easy takings. However, there is a fair amount of similarity to recent releases by other casino software studios, but let’s take a closer look and see if this new spinner is a winner or one better given a miss.
Leprechauns Magic Megaways carries with it an Irish theme, and this feels like déjà vu if we’re honest. Only this week we’ve already examined featured online slots named King of Charms and Well Well Well Buckets of Gold, both with Irish themes. We completely understand why iGaming studios go with it due to the lucky element. Still, it could be a good time for some much-needed originality in the online casino industry. Having been created by Max Win Gaming, you won’t find many differences here to the other Irish themed games you’ve played, with all the same symbols that get used in basically every title, although the graphics are quite crisp and clear.
There is an element that stands out when taking a
quick glance through Leprechaun’s Magic Megaways’ details, and this is that it perhaps
has the lowest maximum bet that we’ve ever seen. Players will only be able to
wager a maximum of £4 per spin,
which will definitely disappoint the high rollers. However, most players that
take to the reels of slot machines online much prefer wagering low and taking
in consistent wins. These players will be thrilled to see that the most you can
win off a spin is 20,000x your bet. This put the jackpot at £80k, with
potentially all players in with a shot due to the low maximum bet required. For
those that like to go really low, the minimum bet stands at 20p. Due to the
Megaways, there are 15,625 paylines at moments in gameplay.
We took a long time going through the reels, multiple
times to be honest and were stumped to find no wild symbol. Usually, if there
is no wild, it means that an innovative bonus feature exists that makes a wild
unnecessary. However, there isn’t such a bonus feature in Leprechaun’s Magic
Megaways. The scatter is a pot of gold, and we’ll discuss
this icon a little later.
This game makes use of quite a traditional regular
symbol formula, meaning that you’ll find lower value and higher value symbols.
The lower value ones are playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A, while the higher
value icons are all synonymous with the Irish theme. These ones are a tobacco
pipe, the leprechaun’s hat, a horseshoe and the leprechaun himself as the
highest paying regular symbol.
Bonuses and Jackpots
If you can’t get enough of bonus features, being one of the main
reasons you play slots online, then Leprechaun’s Magic Megaways
isn’t too bad. It’s all about the Magic Wheel, which you need to play to get
some free spins. To trigger the Magic Wheel, you need to land three or more
pots of gold on the same spin. You then spin the wheel to get several spins.
During the free spins, landing a pot of gold symbol adds another four spins.
You’ll notice at the top of the reels there lie various
golden symbols. These are locked, but should you manage a winning combination
using one of them then the next spin will see that symbol become a special

Playing Leprechaun’s Magic
Megaways isn’t an experience that players will be blown away by unless you
can’t get enough of playing because of the low maximum bet. You won’t be able
to win that much from such low wagers anywhere else, but then again, there are
bigger jackpots to be won in other titles. There are also other themes that are
much more interesting. Depending on what kind of player you are, this will
either be a new favourite or a non-event.
