Leprechaun Heist Slot Review – Blue Guru Games
Provider Blue Guru Games has announced its second scheduled slot launch of the year. The studio is growing fast thanks to the success within its small but unique portfolio, which stands out in the casino market. Blue Guru Games is story-driven, each slot with a well-thought-out story, which is presented in beautifully detailed visual aspects. The last release was for the game titled ‘Legendary Battle Of Nian’, which follows Chinese Folklore tales and the ancient creature known as Nian, with a max win capped at 5,965x and a Free Spins feature with a level upgrade mechanic. In today’s review, we are learning all about ‘Leprechaun Heist’, which is set to launch on the 16th of March!
This slot uses an intriguing theme of a bank heist which takes place during a St. Patricks Day parade. The perfect distraction on the day of the robbery, behind the reel set, you can see three robbers entering the building. Each wearing a St. Patricks Day mask to hide their identities, each with a gun and a duffel bag for the desired loot. The inside of the bank and the contents of the vault are revealed within the artwork during the Free Spins feature. One key thing I noticed within the animations is the bullet being loaded into the meter on the right side. Along with the reel modifiers being added to the reel set, all aspects of this game are polished to perfection. We see the three robbers revealed as 3 premium symbols, along with some of the loot, including gems and Golden Bars.
Blue Guru Games talked about the idea and research done for this launch on their website. Stating, ‘In this case, the idea for Leprechaun Heist took root when one of the team revealed that he is related to two brothers (Clarence and John Anglin) who, along with Frank Morris, are still wanted by the FBI after they escaped from Alcatraz in 1962.
The Irish-American brothers were both serving time for bank robbery. That gave us the inspiration to dig deeper, and there was a lot to unearth.’
Leprechaun Heist has a setup of 5 to 7 reels by 5 to 7 rows; this includes scatter pays of 8 or more matching symbols. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 96% and a max win capped at 6,706x. You can bet from £0.20 to £100.
Leprechaun Heist Symbols & Pay Table
There are 10 symbols in total; this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by Green Clover Gems, Blue Gems, Red Gems, Stacks Of Cash and Emerald Necklaces. There are also 4 premium symbols, which are represented by Gold Bars and 3 Heist Characters. In addition to these regular symbols is a Dynamite Wild, which substitutes for all symbols. The highest-paying symbol is the Gold Border Heist Character Premium, which pays 1x to 30x for clusters of 8 to 25+.
Ammo Level Ups
During a spin, a Level Up is awarded for every 4th consecutive win up to a maximum of 16 wins. The Level Up rewards are as follows;
- 4 Wins – Random Wilds Feature.
- 8 Wins – Symbol Upgrade Feature.
- 12 Wins – Symbol Transformer Feature.
- 16 Wins – The Heist Free Spins Feature.
The Heist Free Spins
This feature can be triggered in the base game after 16 consecutive wins or be purchased for 75x your chosen stake. Awarding 8 Free Spins, during spins, some symbols may have Multipliers ranging from 2x to 5x. The Ammo Level Ups from the base game are active during Free Spins. 16 consecutive wins in a row awards 5 additional Free Spins.
Overall this slot is perfect for the St. Patricks Day celebration this year and gives players a fun gameplay experience. The Level Up mechanic is a first for the studio, and the different sizes of the reel set are an interesting touch too. The Free Spins feature and even the base game are filled with potential with the Ammo Level Ups active. Plus, Symbol Multipliers ranging from 2x to 5x in the Free Spins feature for big potential. This slot is medium volatility, so you will win little and often guaranteed. But this slot has the ability to pay out big, thanks to the mechanics included. Be sure to try out this slot on the launch and check out our exclusive casino offers.
