Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways Slot Game
Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways Slot Introduction
The talented group at Blueprint Gaming has been very adept at creating Megaways online slot games since they launched Irish Riches Megaways in June 2018, coincidentally another Irish-themed game. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength in the breadth and output that they produce. Now we get to Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways, a slot game that should no doubt satisfy fans of slots that use Big Time Gaming’s proprietary game engine, in terms of presentation, bonuses, features, and mechanics. The potential max payout of 50,000x the stake might also have something to do with that.

Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways Slot Game Background
Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways is a sequel to the original Wish Upon a Leprechaun, a game that already was a hit with players thanks to the myriad of prizes and choice payouts it offered. It stands to reason then that as Blueprint Gaming was hunting around their back catalog for a candidate for their next Megaways slot, they chose the 2018 classic original. Hence in October 2019 the world got the follow-up, Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways. That’s a little over a year later. The original boasted a 5 reel, 3-row set-up, and standard (for a non-Megaways slot) 20 paylines but Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways blows it out of the park with a massive 117,649 ways to win among a plethora of other exciting features and design mechanics that we'll discuss below. Before we do so it’s probably worth reminding readers that the two Leprechaun games are part of the wider and lucrative Wish Upon… franchise.
Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways Slot Game Design
Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways is a 6-reel online casino game with anywhere between 2 - 7 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in play. This is coupled with the 117,649 paylines. This is the standard Megaways slot game set-up, as players already familiar with Megaways slots will know. Like its immediate predecessor, however, Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways is filled to the brim with a wide variety of bonus features, which is the experience's core.
The slot has a charming (if not unique) presentation that’s quintessentially Irish. For the setting, we’re standing in front of a rustic-looking cottage seemingly out in the middle of a lush, verdant field. A deep, dark wood and blue skies with wispy clouds can be glimpsed behind the cottage. The sides of the cottage are made from the bark of two huge, green trees. In front of the left-hand one stands a leprechaun; he follows the proceedings on the reels with great interest, although if no spinning takes place for a while, he starts to sleep. The game grid is propped up against the front side of the cottage and sports symbols with Celtic-inspired designs. As you may imagine, the main color scheme is green. The logo sits on the top right of the game grid, just where the roof meets the grid. Opposite this is the Megaways counter; this displays the current number of paylines available on the spin. Meanwhile, the Irish folklore-inspired theme is further reinforced by an upbeat soundtrack composed of traditional Irish music. Did you expect anything else?
Bottom line: if you loved the design and presentation of the original slot, then you’ll be happy to learn that not much has changed here.

Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways Slot Symbols
The game has a total of 10 paying symbols and 3 non-paying symbols. We’ll start from the bottom and work our way up. The lowest paying symbols are the 9 - A playing cards; these have a wonderful Celtic design and are worth between 1x - 1.5x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
The medium-paying symbols are the horseshoe, top hat, and wishing well, all staples of classic Irish-themed slots. These have a payout of between 2x - 5x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
The high-paying symbol is the game logo. This rainbow-colored beauty pays out 50x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels. All in all, not bad going for a Megaways slot, where the values of the paying symbols tend towards the small side.
The three non-paying symbols are the wild, scatter, and mystery. The first is represented by a gold rendition of the Celtic knot and only lands on the horizontal reel above reels 2,3, 4, and 5. As is usually the case, it also substitutes for all other symbols in the game apart from the scatter.
The scatter symbol is represented by a pot of gold and is the key to unlocking the free spins feature. Meanwhile the mystery symbol - represented by a golden four-leaf clover - can appear in any position on the reels. When it does, it can reveal the same randomly chosen symbols apart from the scatter.
Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways Slot Bonus Features
Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways offers a slew of bonuses and features sure to get the excitement going! These include cascading reels, reel modifiers, free spins, and of course the Megaways engine itself. We’ll go over them in turn.
Cascading Reels Feature
Anyone who’s ever played a Megaways slot will be familiar with the cascading reels feature (sometimes called the avalanche feature). Any win sets off a chain reaction in which symbols in winning combinations disappear from the reels, creating space for new symbols to fall into the recently vacated positions. This continues for as long as winning combinations land on the reels.
Reel Modifiers Feature
There are several reel modifiers in the game. They can trigger randomly on any spin in both the base game and the free spins bonus round. Let’s take a quick look at them.
- Guaranteed Megaways = awards a spin with a minimum number of Megaways active.
- Rainbow Respin = turns a losing spin into a winning one.
- Lucky StreakSpin = should the reels stop with a winning combination, these can then respin while holding the trigger symbols in place. This continues until the win is not improved.
- Golden Clover Spin = adds several mystery symbols to the reels.
Free Spins Feature
The next feature of note is the free spins bonus round. The feature is triggered by landing at least 3 scatter symbols on the reels. This awards a total of 8 free spins. Triggering the feature with more than 3 scatters awards additional free spins over and above the initial 8. During the free spins round, the horizontal reel above reels, 2, 3, 4, and 5 can reveal free spins scatters. These award extra free spins
- 3 free spin scatters = 5 extra free spins.
- 4 free spin scatters = 10 extra free spins.
An unlimited win multiplier is also active during the free spins; this starts at 1 and is increased by +1 after every cascade.
Players are given the option to gamble their free spins before they even start the free spins feature. This leads to a very picturesque mini-game in which the leprechaun is seen walking along a path on a mission to collect free spins. Win a gamble and he’ll win for you the relevant number of additional free spins. Lose the gamble, and you lose the relevant number of free spins. At any point, you can choose to COLLECT however many free spins you’ve managed to win up to that point. The bonus round then begins.
The incorporation of the Megaways engine means that each reel can reveal up to 7 symbols in view and landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to the maximum 117,649 ways to win! All winning combinations are added together, and payouts are multiplied by the stake.
