Those pesky Leprechauns always seem to hide their gold in the most ridiculous places, such as the end of the rainbow. Rainbows don’t even have ends, so how do you reach them? Let’s put philosophical questions aside and focus on our slot at hand. If you go over the Slingshot Studios website, you will only spot five games. Considering that they started out their journey back in 2016, it’s quite a low number. That list doesn’t include the new Game of Thrones slot, so it’s not like they haven’t been active. Although we don’t have an answer for their strange business model, we do have a new slot from them called Leprechaun Links.
Leprechauns and the luck of the Irish have often made their appearance on video slots, so theme-wise, we are not working with anything particularly special. This Microgaming partner might not be the most activate one, but the games that they do have are quite decent, so we’re coming into this review with a positive mindset. Leprechaun Links comes with some previously seen Microgaming features, such as Link&Win and Power Stacks. These features have had some success, so it’s going to be interesting to see, how well they work on Leprechaun Links.

Leprechaun Links Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
Ireland is known for its beautiful nature and Slingshot Studios have done it justice. Even though the resolution of the picture is a bit low, we can still enjoy the green forest which is filled with various plants and foliage. We even have nice nature sounds and a jolly soundtrack. Sure, it doesn’t compare to the amount of effort that went into A Dark Matter slot, but Leprechaun Links is still fairly good looking. Leprechaun Links uses a 5 reel x 4 row setup.
Using 40 available Leprechaun Links payline combinations, players must match various game symbols. These symbols come in various payout values, so let’s begin with the lowest. With almost identical values we got four card suits which are styled as gemstones. Already with a doubled value follows a pipe, lyre, jug of beer, coin purse and a watch. The wild symbol is the face of the Leprechaun. If you compare it with the highest regular symbol, this Wild pays triple the amount for a combination of 5 symbols. There are also a bunch of coins that bring additional rewards, but let’s cover those once we get to bonus features.
Leprechaun’s treasure is not easy to find, but once you do manage to get a hold of it, you can expect some miracles. Leprechaun Links is one of the highest paying Slingshot Studios slots. It comes with a max win of 25,000x, which is definitely a hefty win to score. As is the case with high payouts, volatility is high. The RTP settles in with the payout model quite nicely, as we get a reasonable 96.20% as the default value. Slingshot Studios have limited the bet range to 0.20 – 20. All in all, it’s a good payout model, there is nothing bad we can say about it.
Now comes the juicy part. Leprechaun Links is a fairly simple slot, but it comes with plenty of additional features. For starters, we got the Power Stacks feature, where one random symbol is selected on each spin. You can see the selected symbol on the left side. The selected symbol will appear in stacks, providing a bigger chance to score better wins.
Another previously seen bonus feature is Link&Win. This is the part where the previously mentioned coins come into play. This feature is triggered by 6 or more Coins. You will be rewarded with 3 free respins, which reset with every newly acquired coin. Just to be clear, only Coin symbols drop during this feature. There are different coins with different values, so here is what we got:
• Regular Coin is worth 1x-15x during the base game and 2x-30x during Free Spins
• Bronze Coin is worth 20x during the base game and 40x during Free Spins
• Silver Coin is worth 100x during the base game and 200x during Free Spins
• Gold Coin is worth 500x during the base game and 1000x during Free Spins
• Diamond Coin is worth 2500x during the base game and 5000x during Free Spins
Filling the whole layout with coins awards an instant Diamond coin cash prize.
The Leprechaun Links Free Spins feature is quite simple. First things first, you will need 3 scatters, which will grant 15 Free Spins. Throughout the Free Spins feature, all wins are doubled, including the coins and wins from the Link&Win feature.
We didn’t say this before, but going through the review you might have spotted some connections to Slingshot Studio’s Game of Thrones slot. Actually, both slots are completely identical, with the only difference being the theme and how both games sound and look. So essentially Leprechaun Links is just a reskin for Game of Thrones Power Stacks. Surely this will leave the player base divided, as to view this as a good thing or not. We personally enjoyed the Game of Thrones slot, so Leprechaun Links is also a great game, but we do feel slightly disappointed that Slingshot Studios brought nothing new to the table.
