It’s time to throw every single Irish stereotype imaginable into the mix as we prepare to take a look at 1×2 Gaming’s Pots of Luck slot game.
It may be a common theme within the slot world, but if done right, games like this can still be a whole lot of fun to play.
We open up proceedings with a fun 5×3 reel layout that is quite literally smothered by the colour green throughout – which we love. There are 20 paylines to work your way through alongside a whole host of themed symbols including clovers, triple 7s, green pints and more.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is always going to be an important piece of the puzzle for players and the same rings true for the Pots of Luck slot game. The reported RTP for this one comes in at 96% which is below the usual industry average, but with low volatility, smaller and more regular wins could easily be on the cards.
You only have to put down a minimum stake of $€£0.20 in this one to get started before riding up to a nice maximum of $€£100, and from there, players will be happy to learn that winning a whopping $€£150,000 coins is a possibility.
We know that it comes across as a bit cheap and a bit tacky, but there’s something about the Irish theming combined with the colour green that just works. It’s not a masterpiece whatsoever, but it’s still solid enough.
The wild symbol is the green bag stuffed with gold and can replace all other symbols on the reels outside of the scatter – which is the leprechaun hat. Oh, and the wilds are also sticky, meaning they can stay on the reels for quite some time.
If you want to pick your bonus game then you’ll need to land groups of bonus clover symbols (3, 4 or 5), whereby you’ll be handed five opportunities to win a prize.
The free spins element is always a fun part of any slot and this one is actually quite generous. When three of the scatters land you’ll get 10 free spins, four scatters leads to 14 free spins and five scatters will give you a huge 18 free spins.
When you put that together with the sticky wilds, there’s a whole lot to get excited about.
The Pots of Luck slot game doesn’t try to reinvent what it means to be Irish or what it means to conduct a slot within this field. What it does do, though, is shoot for one primary goal above all others – giving people a good time.
It makes us want to sing, dance and drink in equal measure, and while that may not be possible in the current climate, it’s a slot that helps us to look ahead to better days.
For that, we say bravo 1×2 Gaming.
