If you’re still searching for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, this slot game might be the perfect place to end your search. In our Leprechaun’s Luck Cash Collect review, we’ll show you, the secrets the mysterious pot of gold holds, and whether the search is worth it. Developed by Playtech, this slot features the “collect” mechanic which even though is becoming somewhat common, still offers fun gameplay and shiny coins.
The theme of the slot is Irish inspired, which is a theme that is often found among casino games, but still, it’s a theme that’s almost always befitting.
Somewhere over The Rainbow
We already said that the theme is Irish inspired, but what exactly does this entail? Is there anything new and different to differentiate this game from the thousands of other Irish inspired slots? Well, yes…and no. While the mechanics can slightly vary from game to game, the theme is pretty much the same. And while it’s a theme that’s a classic and fitting with a luck-based game, if you’re not a fan of leprechauns and the fictional pot of gold, this might not be the slot for you.
The symbols involved are all Irish inspired of course, and they consist of a Horseshoe, a Pint, a Leprechaun, a Boot, a Pipe and the letters A, K, Q and J. Nothing particularly exciting about the symbols. But how do they stack against the value multiplier?
- A, K, Q, J x3 to x45 multiplier for 3 – 5 on a payline
- Shoe x6 to x75 multiplier for 3 – 5 on a payline
- Pint x6 to x75 multiplier for 3 – 5 on a payline
- Horseshoe x6 to x90 multiplier for 3 – 5 on a payline
- Pipe x9 to x120 multiplier for 3 – 5 on a payline
- Leprechaun x9 to x180 for 3- 5 on a payline
There’s also a Collect symbol which lands on the 5th reel in the base game, as well as a Wild which substitutes all regular items to help you score a win.
More Goodies in the Pot
Well, if you thought the pot comes only with gold, you’d be wrong. What hides in the pot of gold are also a few more symbols which help you to line up a winning combination. There are also Diamond symbols which serve as a jackpot, and the amount awarded by the jackpot is situated on top of the reels.
The Cash Collect symbol can land only on reel 5, and when it lands it collects all present Cash coin symbols, as well as the Diamond Jackpot symbols. The jackpot symbols can award you 1 – 4 fixed Jackpot prizes, as shown in the bar on top of the reels. The Jackpots are divided into several categories:
- Grand awards you x500
- Major awards you x200
- Minor awards you x 50
- Mini awards you x 20
For example, if you had a €5 stake the Jackpots wins would be as follows: Major awards you €2,500, Major awards you €1,000, Minor awards you €250 and Mini €100. For €5, these Jackpots are not bad at all, however, they are rare, so don’t take them for granted.
You can also trigger a free spins feature in the game, and this happens when a logo with a number on it appears on the reels. These symbols have values on them such as +3, +5 and +10. The game then adds all values together for the total amount of free spins you are about to be rewarded. Once the free spins feature gets going you Collect Cash symbols appear and they move from one reel to the next. When they finally reach the end of the reel, they leave the game.
RTP, Volatility and Other Bits and Pieces
RTP and volatility are some of the most important factors for the game, and our Leprechaun’s Luck Cash Collect review wouldn’t be complete if we left that information out. While you can play any slot game for the theme, if you’re serious about winning some cash don’t skip this section.

To be honest, the technical features of the game are not the most impressive we’ve seen. It features a below-average RTP rate, which means that for every €100 you wager you would win approximately €95 to €96 over a period. With many slots games going above 96% RTP, this is a bit low.
Medium volatility means that you won’t be receiving rewards too often, and not too rare in between rounds. Medium volatility doesn’t bring out the most fun gameplay dynamic but still, it’s kind of a safe middle-ground as far as slot games go.
What’s interesting is the betting range. With this betting range, you can adjust the game according to your budget whether you want to spend a little, or a lot of money. With the Jackpot feature and its big multiplier, a big stake can turn out into an enormous payout if you manage to score a Jackpot win.
The game runs on HTML5 so it’s fully accessible on mobile without any features missing or any changes made to the gameplay. So, if you feel like playing on your mobile screen, you will be able to do just fine.
Conclusion – Is there a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
Well, it depends on what you’re looking for. While the Irish theme and gameplay mechanics aren’t anything new, the possibility of winning a big jackpot is surely entertaining. The visual fidelity of the symbols is better than some other games with a similar theme out there, and the Cash Collect symbol can attribute to some nice wins. All in all, a not too exciting decent entrance to the slot world.
