Pragmatic Play gets festive in Leprechaun Carol. This volatile dose of Christmas cheer is played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine and comes with plenty of seasonal goodies. They include random added wilds, a pick me bonus, colossal 3×3 symbols and 3 different free spin rounds. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The design here is as bright and colourful as you’d expect for a slot with this theme. Set against a wintry, chocolate box backdrop, the reels feature A to 10 royal values plus glasses of stout, pipes and top hats. Carol the Leprechaun is the most rewarding symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll receive an award equal to 2.5, 10 or 50 times your total stake.

The rainbow is the wild. It can hit on all 5 reels and substitute for everything bar the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds in a row and you’ll win a prize of 5, 20 or 50 times your stake. There’s plenty going on in Leprechaun Carol, starting with the mini modifiers that can strike at random on any spin.

  • Raining Wilds feature – a random selection of wilds can drop onto the reels on any spin. A new payout calculation is then made with the extra wilds in position.
  • Pick a Fiddle feature – you’ll be offered the choice of 5 fiddles. Choose 1 to reveal a cash prize.
  • Giant Symbol feature – on any spin, you could see a colossal 3×3 symbol appear anywhere on the reels.

Land the scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to trigger the trio of free spin rounds. If you hit scatters on reels 1 and 3 you could see the all-important third nudge into place on reel 5 from the Scatter Nudge feature. You’ll then play 1 of the following features:

  • Free Spins Picker feature – you’ll start this round with 20 free spins and a 2x multiplier. Before they begin, pick from the mushrooms in the frosty field. These can add more free spins and higher multipliers or turn a standard symbol into a wild for the duration of the feature.
  • Coin Collector feature – on offer here are 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Here the scatter is replaced by a coin symbol. Collect 5 coins to win more free spins and increase the multiplier up to a maximum of 6x.
  • Giant Symbols feature – your reward here is 3 free spins. On the first of them, a colossal 3×3 symbol will appear on reels 3, 4 and 5. On free spin 2, it hits on reels 2, 3 and 4. On the third and final free spin, it lands on reels 1, 2 and 3.

Leprechaun Carol is an enjoyable Christmas slot. That’s certainly the case if you like plenty of extras. The range of features here delivers plenty of variety. It might look cuddly but this is a volatile game and the variance is high. Get lucky with the free spins and multipliers and Leprechaun Carol could deliver some very festive seasonal cheer – to the tune of 6,000 times your stake on every spin!

If you like the Christmas theme, NetEnt’s Jingle Spin is worth playing. I also recommend you try Pragmatic Play’s Mustang Gold where you can win 12,000 times your stake on every spin.
