Wish Upon a Leprechaun MegaWays™
Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways™ Slot Review (Blueprint Gaming) – Win Up to 50,000x Total Bet
The MegaWays makeover of Blueprint Gaming’s hit slot Wish Upon a Leprechaun is here.
That’s 6 reels and full 117,649 MegaWays to win. That’s also 5x more win potential than the original, featuring a maximum win of up to 50,000x! For that you’re going to need some help from four Reel Modifiers that kick in at random and the Free Spins bonus which you can gamble for up to 50 Free Spins! Combine the two and you’ll be on your way to a big pot o’ gold.
There’s no Feature Buy for shortcuts and you won’t even see some of the modifiers for hours of play, which is disappointing given how bonus-rich the 2018 non-MegaWays release turned out to be. Still, it’s probably the best MegaWays Irish slot from Blueprint’s four releases to date (Irish Riches, Slots O’ Gold, Luck O’ The Irish).
The game’s out from 24 October 2019 and is available for play at recommended Blueprint slot sites like Bgo.

Here’s a quick overview of what this slot has to give.
Reel Modifiers – 4x Random Lucky Features
There are 10 regular symbols dropping and exploding on the reels, otherwise known as cascading symbols with reactions (winning symbols explode, new ones fall from above, new wins can be formed, repeat).
From all standard symbols the Wish Upon a Leprechaun logo is by far the most valuable with its 50x maximum line win (also appears stacked, on MegaWays!).
There’s also a regular Wild symbol but what usually makes a difference in the balance is 1 of 4 lucky Reel Modifiers (randomly activated):
- Rainbow Respin – respins the reels for a guaranteed win.
- Guaranteed MegaWays – free spin with a minimum (random) number of MegaWays (rare).
- Lucky Streak – holds winning symbols and respins the reels until there’s no more symbols to add to improve the win (super rare).
- Golden Clover Spin – Adds up to 100 Mystery symbols onto the reels in a burst like in Return of Kong MW.
The latter is the most frequent of all, so much so that the other three appear to be just as rare as a four-leaf clover. However, the good thing about the Golden Clover Spin is that when you get the reactions going there are more mystery symbols which can drop down from above, creating a nice domino effect.
Now imagine these features in a Free Spins bonus…
Free Spins + Unlimited Win Multiplier
The most exciting thing that can happen in the Wish Upon a Leprechaun MegaWays slot is the Free Spins bonus (re-triggerable).
You usually get 8 Free Spins (7 is minimum), but no Leprechaun slot is without a board-game type feature – they called it the Free Spins Gamble. It’s nowhere near as exciting (and risky) as in Vikings Unleased MegaWays, but you can gamble your initial free spins step-by-step up to 50 Free Spins! (Think Merkur ladder gamble)
Whichever amount you’ll win, the Free Spins always come with an Unlimited Win multiplier that starts at x1 and increases by +1 with every win/cascade/reaction.
The bonus is relatively frequent (1 in 100 spins or so), but very volatile as from the many times that I triggered it (having lost any hope), I’ve managed to get a nice 400x win once. I did that with just a few of the high-pay Logo symbols and a x7 win multiplier, which shows that there’s so much more potential reserved for the ones with the luck of the Irish!
The Megaways™ mechanic is heading over to the Emerald Isle to enhance one of our most popular and cheeky slot releases in recent times. The original Wish Upon a Leprechaun title was packed full of fun features and with the addition of Megaways™, there are even more ways to strike lucky in this Irish-themed release.Jo Purvis, Director of Marketing and Relationships at Blueprint Gaming
Race to the Riches Continues
Players who like the land-based version of the game would have to sacrifice many bonuses for a bigger win potential and better RTP (although it’s still one of the lowest of all MW Blueprint slots with 95.50%).
Overall, the developers seem to have aimed for a classic MegaWays experience rather than something nuts like Gods of Olympus. As a result it helps with allocating big chunks of RTP between the few features and maximising the volatility. So, if you’re okay with the more standard features and are all in for the 50,000x win potential then prepare for a nice variation of existing MegaWays slots from Blueprint and a Leprechaun twist.
