Paddy Power Gold Megaways
Get ready for an encounter with the lucky leprechaun on the slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Paddy Power Gold Megaways was initially called Golden Leprechaun Megaways but has been turned for a limited time into an exclusive game for UK bookmaker Paddy Power. Eventually, it will be released globally under the second name while Paddy Power will get to keep their original.
Spin the lucky reels and you could trigger Wild Stacks, Random Wilds, Lucky Ways, and a Lucky Spins bonus round for wins of up to 10,499 times your bet. On a very lucky day you could trigger one of three progressive network jackpots.
Paddy Power Gold Megaways is a video slot with six reels and up to 117,649 ways to win, using the licensed BTG Megaways game engine. The number of ways from 324 to the maximum is randomly determined for every spin by selecting between two and seven pay symbols for each of the six reels.
Wins are paid for adjacent symbols from left to right. The symbols from a winning combination are part of a reaction which will see them explode to make room for new symbols to cascade into place. This will continue as long as a new winning combination occurs after a reaction. Wins are accumulated from all cascades and paid before the next spin starts.
Your rendezvous with the lucky leprechaun on desktop, tablet or mobile starts at 0.10 and peaks at 40.00 credits per spin. The default RTP of this highly volatile (10/10) game is a disappointingly low 94.05%, which includes the progressive jackpot contributions where they are offered.
Set in an enchanted green forest with sunrays protruding the rich vegetation and birds humming, the large game window is held in a traditional Irish wooden frame. The reels are dominated mainly by typical lucky symbols. An Irish soundtrack keeps things lively throughout a gaming session.
Open the game to find the card royals from 9 through to A at the low end of the paytable, awarding 0.9x to 1.8x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by pints of Guinness, the leprechaun’s diary, 4-leaf clovers and champions’ ribbons. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 50x your stake.
An intricate gold-ornamented icon marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular symbols. A Lucky Spins icon acts as the scatter on this slot.
Paddy Power Gold Megaways Slot Features
As to be expected, your path to mega wins in the base game is in the hands of the Lucky Leprechaun. He may appear at any time offering you three mushrooms to choose from. Each represents one random feature with a reel modifier which will be applied to the current spin.
- Lucky Ways: Symbols landing in view are swapped to guarantee a win.
- Random Wilds: Up to five wilds are added to random positions on the reels.
- Wild Stacks: Adds up to four wild reels with a multiplier equivalent to the number of symbol positions on the reel. More than one multiplier wild in a winning combo are multiplied by each other, e.g. two wild stacks with x3 will result in an x9 multiplier.
Hit three or more scatters in one spin sequence to trigger the Lucky Spins bonus round with one random feature and an unlimited win multiplier. The game will award a number of free spins ranging from 6 to 20 based on how many scatters landed on the triggering spin. During the round, any three scatters will award +5 free spins with every additional scatter on the same spin adding an extra +5 free spins.
Before the feature starts, you can pick one of the three random features to be active for your Lucky Spins. The selected random feature will trigger at a higher frequency. Plus, the win multiplier will increase by x1 for each winning reaction, no limits.
Last but not least are the three progressive jackpots – Cash Booster, Daily Jackpot, Monster Jackpot. The Daily Jackpot is time-limited and will trigger guaranteed before a set time while the Cash Booster is a ceiling jackpot that will trigger guaranteed before the set jackpot amount is reached. The final and most desirable is the Monster Jackpot which is unlimited and can trigger at any time.
The chances of winning a jackpot are relative to your bet size. You will need to hit three jackpot symbols anywhere on the reels in one spin to start off the random jackpot game. The selector will jump between the three jackpots and will award the one which stays highlighted at the end.
Well, there you go, another Irish-themed Megaways slot, although it is the first from Red Tiger Gaming. It offers solid Megaways action and win potential with some surprising twists from the random features. Up to 10,499 times your bet are up for grabs, and not to forget the three progressive jackpots.
