Meet Leprechaun Kelpie in NetEnt’s new Irish video slot
It’s not the first Irish video slot NetEnt launches, but it’s the first that offers three NetEnt Jackpots. Besides, it brings a second Leprechaun to the reels. A nameless one, the reason why I introduce you to Kelpie! Meet Kelpie in NetEnt’s new Irish video slot named Irish Pot Luck™ and enjoy all the best of the Emerald Island!
So, the first thing I thought when I saw the announcement of the new Irish video slot is the new Leprechaun character. I know it’s hard to compete with the cheerful Finn from Finn and the Swirly Spin™, but why does Finn get a name and this fellow didn’t. Aren’t they equally grand!
Finn became famous with his Swirly Spin kind of slot mechanism, but I think this new Irish video slot has a lot to offer as well. First, there’s an equally cheerful Leprechaun and there are three new NetEnt Jackpots to enjoy.
So why didn’t get this Leprechaun and Finn did? I didn’t think it was fair, so I called him Kelpie! Kelpie, like Finn, is a supernatural being in Irish folklore. He’s recognized by his ginger beard, his green costume and high green hat. He isn’t tall, like a dwarf, but he is a true smart ass!
Kelpie takes you to Emerald Isle to find the end of the rainbow. There’s no better place for a Leprechaun like Kelpie to look for a pot of gold. So join Kelpie for his quest in this new Irish video slot and maybe he feels the need to share some of his pot of gold with you.
What’s different in this new Irish video slot?
Well, Finn got competition with this new Irish video slot. There’s beer like in Finn’s Golden Tavern™ and there’s a cheerful Leprechaun in the spotlights.
Finn’s Swirly Spins are super enjoyable, but there are no jackpots to be won. So I think all three Irish NetEnt slots have something to offer. The biggest change in this new Irish video slot is the fact that you can win three jackpots during an exciting bonus game.
This jackpot bonus game was clearly inspired by Mega Fortune™, but there are no millions to be won this time. Instead, you can win up to 5000 times your bet which sounds like a pot of gold to me!
Even if you play with the lowest bet of 0.20, you can win a jackpot of up to 1000.00. That just adds to the fun of the Pot Luck feature and a Multiplier of up to x5 activated with every single spin.
How do I win a jackpot in Irish Pot Luck™?
It’s not until three rainbow Scatters appear on the reels that you have a chance to win a jackpot. The reason why is that these three Scatters are responsible for the activation of the Jackpot bonus wheel.
There are two ways to trigger the three Scatters
- Three Scatters land on the reels
- Kelpie throws three Scatters on the reels that he gets from his pot of gold or he adds Scatters to complete the three Scatters.
No matter the way three Scatters land on the reels, as long as they do. It’s then up to you to land three arrows to win the Mega Jackpot. The wheel has a lot in common with Mega Fortune™. It’s your only way to win either the Mini, Midi or Mega Jackpot.
What’s the sign at the bottom in this new Irish video slot?
The wooden sign at the bottom that turns with each spin, is the Multiplier sign. Each spin again, a random Multiplier is activated. During the main game they show x1, x2, x3, or x5 while during Free Spins the potential Multipliers are x2, x4, x7, or x15.
What is Kelpie throwing on the reels?
Every spin again, Kelpie can toss special symbols onto the reels. These can be Wilds, Scatters, and Jackpot symbols. Wilds will always do their job and substitute all symbols. You need three Scatters to activate Free Spins and three Jackpot symbols Jackpot to activate the Jackpot Wheel feature.
