Welshman wins Irish-themed slot jackpot at English online casino and pockets $213,000

  • Leprechaun’s Luck pays out big on progressive jackpot
  • Slot has multiplier of up to 1,000x

If you thought Irish-themed slots were stuffed with cliches and stereotypes, think again.

The luck of the Irish is an actual thing it transpires, or at least it is in the case of the Betfred player who won £163,244 ($213,000) from a single spin. Leprechaun’s Luck lived up to its name on this occasion, proving that sometimes the memes are real.

The game might have been unashamedly Irish, but its winner was a Welshman through and through.

It’s reassuring to know that Leprechaun’s Luck doesn’t discriminate in terms of who it pays out to.

How he did it

Jason triumphed while playing the progressive version of Ash Gaming’s 5-reel, 20-payline Leprechaun’s Luck.

It’s the Over the Rainbow bonus that’s the real moneymaker in the game, triggered after landing at least three scatter symbols on the board.

On a bad day, you can win 1,000x your stake; on a good day you can make like Jason and trouser the entire jackpot, which can run into the hundreds of thousands of pounds.

A medium variance game with an RTP of just under 91%, Leprechaun’s Luck awards five free spins at a time, though these can be retriggered, causing the big money wins to quickly stack up.

With its playing symbols of toadstools, harpsichords and of course leprechauns, the game looks just like any other Irish-themed slot.

Beneath its unassuming exterior, however, Leprechaun’s Luck is packing some potentially huge payouts, as Betfred’s winning Welshman discovered.

Every casino likes to parade its big money winners, and while Jason’s precise identity is being kept under wraps, Betfred Casino is only too happy to big up the Welshman’s achievement.

As an incentive for other aspiring jackpot winners, the online casino is offering a £50 first deposit bonus and 10 free spins. Check the terms and conditions though – especially the wagering requirement.

There’s a lot to agonise over at a site that’s stocked to overflowing with enticing slots including Superman and Batman branded games plus a range of jackpot slots that includes Adventures Beyond Wonderland and Funky Fruits.

The latter game along can award 5,000x your stake. It also offers a live casino, sportsbook, virtual sports, bingo, lotto and Vegas section – Betfred has the full suite of games.
