Boilin’ Pots Slot RTP, Details and Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + 16,807 paylines

Stakes Range: 10p to £40 per spin

Max Win: 10,114 x stake per spin

RTP: 96%

The Boilin’ Pots slot is played on 5 reels with 3 rows that can expand to 7. There are also 16,807 paylines in total. Wins are formed by landing 3 or more identical symbols on consecutive reels from left to right.

Stakes range from just 10p up to £40 per spin, thus catering to all bankrolls. Simply click the coins icon below the reels to change your total bet. There are 16 fixed values to pick from. There are also autospins on offer if you’re outside the UK. You will see the autospin symbol just to the left of the spin button. You can choose from 10 autospins up to an infinite number until a bonus feature lands.

The Boilin’ Pots RTP is a flat 96%, which is bang on the average percentage for an online slot. The hit frequency is listed as 22.91%, which is a little on the low side compared to a lot of other slots on the market. Anything above 25% is normally pretty good, but this is slightly lower meaning that just over a 5th of all spins on average will result in a winner.

The maximum win is 10,114 x your stake, which is good to see. Your best chance of landing this will be once the reels have expanded fully. But tread carefully with the Boilin’ Pots slot game as the volatility here is at its maximum level – super high.

Theme – A dark but colourful experience

Theme: Sorcery

High Value Symbol: Book

Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

The Boilin’ Pots slot theme is all about sorcery, with the reels set in a bubbling cauldron which enhances the overall appeal of the slot. It certainly beats just being on a basic background like a lot of other slots. The bold colours and animations around the reels make it really appealing to the eye, and I have to say that Yggdrasil has done a great job here.

When it comes to the soundtrack, it’s pretty repetitive and doesn’t really fit with the theme, to be honest. It sounds quite fantasy-like, whereas I would have expected something darker and creepier. That’s not to say it’s bad because it’s not. It just doesn’t really fit the theme in my opinion.

On the reels, you’ve got lower paying symbols such as mandrake roots, claws, eyeballs, wings, and potions. These are joined by higher-paying gems in different colours; green, blue, orange and red. There’s also a pink book of what I assume is a book of spells. The book is the most lucrative symbol, paying 2, 4 or 10 x your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination respectively.

The game’s Wild is a toadstool, which substitutes for all regular symbols and can bring Stacked Wilds in the Wild Respins feature.

Boilin’ Pots Mobile

boilin-pots-mobile-slot

The Boilin’ Pots slot game is available to play on multiple devices. With Yggdrasil putting a lot of emphasis on mobile players, the HTML5 technology means it can be played with no issues on iOS or Android.

As standard, it can be played on tablets, laptops and PCs. With the potential for thousands of ways to win, I would advise a larger screen to get the full visual experience as it can stretch to a 5×7 reel set.

Boilin’ Pots Bonus Features

There are 3 main features attached to the Boilin’ Pots slot – Expanding Reels, Wild Respin, and the Bonus Game feature. Read on below as we explain how each of them works.

Expanding Reels

You will see green arrows appear on the reels as you spin. If you manage to land 1, it will increase the reels’ height by 1 row and can reach up to 7 high. If a newly added row has an arrow symbol on it too, another row is added. Once you hit the maximum 5×7 reel set, no more arrows will land and the arrow also doesn’t appear in the bonus game.

Wild Respins

If you manage to land 4 arrow symbols in a spin, it will trigger a Wild Respin. These respins will continue as long as you continue to land winning combinations. What’s great here is that there are Stacked Wilds present on the reel set, which may consist of up to 3 symbols.

Bonus Game feature

boilin-pots-slot-bonus-game-feature

Landing 3 bonus symbols in the base game of the Boilin’ Pots slot game will trigger the Bonus Game feature. If you land 4 or even 5 in the base game, here’s what you’ll get:

Number of Symbols Award
4 bonus symbols bonus game and a 10x cash prize
5 bonus symbols bonus game and a 100x cash prize

There’s just 1 payout line when this feature begins, and when a symbol lands on the line it will award a prize. Starting with 3 lives, you will lose 1 life each time no symbols appear on the winning line. Any win resets the total to 3, just like a typical Respins feature. The game ends when there are no more lives left.

Here are the available prizes:

  • Cash Win: 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 50x
  • Big Win: 100x, 200x, 500x, 1,000x, 5,000x

Originality








When you first load the game, you’re no doubt instantly intrigued to see how it plays inside a cauldron, and it doesn’t disappoint, to begin with. The way the reels expand is great, but everything does feel a little thin, which is a worry for anyone looking to play a slot for a prolonged period of time. We’re worried there will be plenty of players who may get bored of this one fairly quickly as the gameplay and bonus features are pretty average, even though it looks good.

When we were testing out the game, it took us a hell of a long time before we triggered the Bonus Game feature, which was slightly disappointing. This takes us back to the hit frequency of 22.91%, which is pretty low. A lot of other slots tend to be above 25% and some are closer to or even over 30%.

But we cannot deny the visuals are fantastic and, overall, it is a good slot to play. We’re just not sure about the longevity.

If you’re a fan of the theme, there’s some other bubbling entertainment to be had in other games. For example, Quickspin’s Wild Cauldron slot comes with up to 262,144 ways to win and a max win potential of 21,120 x your stake.

Alternatively, there are plenty of books and potions on display in the Book of Shadows slot by Nolimit City. It’s a little darker than this one with a horror theme and comes with a huge max win potential of 30,338 x your stake.

Pros
  • 10,114 x max wins
  • 16,807 paylines
  • Expanding reels
Cons
  • Super high volatility
