13th May is Leprechaun Day!

We love a leprechaun. They’re cheeky, love a good prank and legend has it that if you catch one, he’s got to give you his pot of gold. Wouldn’t mind bumping into one of them on a park run. Our little green-clad friends have been part of Irish folklore for thousands of years (sorry, they’re not real), and despite their prankster nature, they are very well-loved and it’s no surprise that they get a day of their own – International Leprechaun Day (13th May).

OJO has loads of leprechaun pals – they’re great fun and they certainly know how to lay on the gold. Warning though – if do you get a pot of gold from a leprechaun, don’t look away for a second because rumour has it he can disappear into thin air – and you wouldn’t want that little bearded fairy to get the last laugh, would ya now? Here are 3 of OJO’s closest leprechaun amigos, in no particular order…

OJO’s Leprechaun Buddy #1

This little leprechaun doesn’t do things by half measures. By Red Tiger Gaming, Golden Leprechaun MegaWays is a 117,649 MegaWays (ways to win) slot. Set in a forest, it comes with 3 random features and a Lucky Spins feature with an unlimited win multiplier and you can win up to 10,000 times your stake on each free spin. Your leprechaun friend can appear at any time – never one to make a plan, and then you get to pick one of the 3 mushrooms which each reveal a different bonus feature.

Bonus feature #1: The Lucky Ways feature swaps symbols for a guaranteed payout.
Bonus feature #2: The Random Wilds feature adds up to 5 wild symbols anywhere on the reels.
Bonus feature #3: The Wild Stacks feature can deliver up to 4 wild stacks which come with multipliers up to 7x, and up to x28 multiplier for bigger combos.

OJO’s Leprechaun Buddy #2

You might not expect to see a leprechaun in the heat of the middle east, but our ginger-bearded fellow wants to play some international pranks for a change.  Cleo, you’d better watch out hun coz this time, Leprechaun Goes Egypt. When it comes to mischief, this leprechaun is not holding back and plays havoc on Ancient Egypt by painting the pyramids in green, squashing a scarab with his pot of gold and even turning Cleopatra into an Irish wench! Talk about lad’s abroad.

Leprechaun Goes Egypt benefits from some cool bonus features: The Rescue Cleopatra feature where you have to pick the correct door to find Cleopatra for up to 500 times your stake and The Free Spins feature where you will either get 5 free spins with a 6x multiplier from Cleopatra, 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier from the leprechaun or 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier from the Mummy.

OJO’s Leprechaun Buddy #3

There’s always that one friend, the wild card – they always have a few stories to tell, as does our next pointy-eared buddy. Fasten your seatbelts folks, coz this time, Leprechaun Goes Wild. Set in lush Irish pastures, you’ll find jolly treats like the Luck of the Irish feature. This is where 1 of 2 extras will be randomly selected – Extra Wilds for 1 Wild added per reels or Extra Scatter for a 3rd scatter for the Free Spins feature.

There’s also the Free Spins feature which awards you 7, 9, 11 or 13 free spins. During this time, all wild symbols become sticky wilds and stay where they are until the spins finish and could take your potential total to 22 free spins. It’s wild and we like it.
