Pots O’Luck, released in December 2016, is a luck-themed video slot casino made by Betdigital Ltd; and distributed by NYX Gaming, OpenBet and SG Digital. Themes include superstititon, St. Patrick’s Day, Irish mythology, lucky clover, and rainbow myths. Pots O’Luck is one of the three pot-themed slot games from Betdigital Ltd; the other two games are Mega Pots Mega-X and Super Pots Bar-X. Similarly themed rival games include Pots of Luck (March 2019) from 1X2 Gaming, Leprechaun’s Luck from Ash Gaming, and Lucky Clover from iSoftBet.
The name “Pots O’Luck” is based on the noun “pot luck” that means unexpectedly coming across something. The concept behind Pots O’Luck is also centered on a pot of gold that, based on the Irish mythology, is portrayed as being hidden where the rainbow ends. In the regular game, Pots O’Luck’s players do not have much of a choice because only two symbols (“Pots O’Luck” and horse shoe) require three, four, or five combinations; during the free spins, five symbols (three side by side coins, “Bronze” coin, “silver” coin, “Gold” coin, and golden pot) require only three winning combinations; and the shamrock needs four or five combinations.
Pots O’Luck Game Characteristics
Pots O’Luck is a multiplier slot with a 5X3 golden grid, 20 active pay lines, two bonus games, twenty-three bet options, a win multiplier, and free games. Like Valhalla slot (Betdigital; 2016), its three winning ways are left to right and vice versa, and the three middle reels. The regular payouts of Pots O’Luck range from X20 to X1000.
Quite strangely, Pots O’Luck has only two ordinary symbols. The first one is a square green-and-golden “Pots O’Luck”, and the second one is a golden horse shoe. There is no Wild; however, a pair of golden horse shoes with green linings can substitute for the lone horse shoe.
These are the seven Pots O’Luck special symbols: an image of three coins side by side; a “Bronze” coin; a “Silver” coin; a “Gold” coin; a golden pot with rainbow ends; a four-leaf clover; and a predominantly brown-and-red horse-drawn caravan fitted with tiny reels.
The Pots O’Luck bet sizes: $0.20 (minimum bet), $0.40, $0.60, $1.00, $2.00, $4.00, $6.00, $8.00, $10.00, $12.00, $14.00, $16.00, $18.00, $20.00, $40.00, $60.00, $80.00, $100.00, $120.00, $140.00, $160.00, $180.00, and $200.00 (maximum bet).
The Pots O’Luck payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations: the green-and-golden “Pots of Luck” pays X20, X40, and X200; and the single golden shoe has X200, X400, and X1000.
During the free spins bonus, the coins pay as follows: the three side by side coins pay X1; “Bronze” coin pays X2; “Silver” coin pays X5; “Gold” coin pays X10; and the golden pot unlocks its progressive jackpot. Either four or five four-leaf clovers unlock the so-called Shamrock Surprise Bonus, whereby the Pots O’Luck are required to select-and-unveil the bet multiplier. The pair of horse shoes is a X2 win multiplier. Pots O’Luck has five progressive jackpots, and every reel is fitted with a jackpot counter above it.
The Pots O’Luck software is good, although it lacks the spin levels found in other Betdigital-owned slots. The 3D graphics are exciting and colorful. The sounds are magical.
