Pots O’ Luck is an unusual Irish fortune themed slot from NextGen Gaming and betdigital. The base game is played on a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine that features just 2 standard symbols. There’s also a picks bonus and a free spins round that’s played on a mini reel set that offers a shot at a progressive jackpot prize. Play from 20p to £200 per spin.
The reels in Pots O’ Luck are dominated by just 2 standard symbols. You’ll see the Pots O’ Luck logo which awards 20, 40 or 200 coins and the golden horseshoe which pays 200, 400 or 1,000 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5in a line. Dotted among those symbols will be plenty of blanks. Winning combinations can be created starting from left, right or the middle of a reel.
The double horseshoe is the wild – it replaces the horseshoe only and doubles the payout when it hits. Look out too for the shamrock scatter – land 4 or 5 of these on the same spin to trigger the Shamrock Surprise Bonus feature. This is a picks round that awards instant win cash prizes.
The other symbol is the caravan – if this lands, you’ll get a spin on a mini, single reel machine within the caravan symbol. If you land a winner here, you’ll trigger the Caravan Free Spins Bonus feature where you are awarded 7 free spins. You’ll see bronze, silver and gold symbols spinning here which offer awards of between 1 and 10 times your total stake. There’s also a pot of gold – land 3 of these on a free spin and you’ll win the progressive jackpot prize.
The Irish fortune theme is a popular one in the slots world and this is a very unusual take. The design is dripping in green and gold and there’s a nice harp accompaniment on each spin. The features offer a break from the norm.
If you’ve ever played Reel King from Novomatic which feature mini reels within a symbol, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect here. The Caravan free spins offer some decent winning potential when you do land them though.
We weren’t bowled over by this particular trip. It’s look and sounds nice enough but we found the gameplay a little disappointing. There may be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow thanks to the progressive jackpot element. We won’t spend long hunting for it though. I recommend you try IGT’s Shamrockers Eire to Rock which has an Irish luck theme.
