Irish Pot Luck is an Irish-themed online slot by NetEnt. It’s one of the provider’s new slots for 2020 and offers an exciting and potentially rewarding gaming experience thanks to its special features. There are three main features that make the slot very fun to play and can be fairly lucrative if you have some luck on your side.
The slot uses a typical grid with three rows, five reels and fifteen positions that symbols land on. There are twenty paylines that you can form winning combinations on as you play. For you to win, you need at least three of the same symbol to land on a payline. To count as a win, the symbols have to be on adjacent reels, beginning with the reel on the far left. The slot has a low to medium volatility, so as you play you should win smaller prizes fairly often; occasionally, you may even score a larger win, too. The slot’s RTP is 96.06%, which is average compared with other slots.
Symbols and Payouts
There’s a range of symbols that can appear on the slot’s reels. Most of these are standard symbols that just offer payouts, while a few are bonus symbols that have special effects. The slot’s least valuable symbols are icons representing the four card suits (diamonds, clubs, spades and hearts). As for the more valuable symbols, they’re designed to fit the slot’s Irish theme and include hats, pipes, horseshoes and harps. The one you want to land is the harp – this is the most rewarding standard symbol, giving you a payout worth 20x your stake for a line of five.
As for the bonus symbols, there’s a scatter that’s linked with the free spins round, and a wild. The wild symbol can fill in for any standard symbol, so it can help you bring in some wins. It’s also the slot’s most valuable symbol overall, giving you a 50x payout for landing five on one of the slot’s paylines.
In the bottom right-hand corner of the screen there’s a signpost that rotates as you play. It displays a multiplier that’s applied to any wins. During the slot’s base game, the multipliers you can get on the signpost are: x1, x2, x3 or x5; during the free spins round, the multipliers increase in value and can be x2, x4, x7 or x15.
Speaking of free spins, you receive ten of them whenever three or more rainbow scatters land on the reels. You’ll be pleased to learn that the free spins round can be retriggered. If three or more scatters land, you’ll be credited with another batch of ten free spins to use.
Look out for special jackpot symbols. These appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 only. Land one on each of these reels and you’ll get to play a special jackpot wheel game. The wheel has three levels and if you reach the very centre, you’ll win the slot’s top payout of 5,000x your stake. Even if you’re not lucky enough to win the big prize, you can still win some quite high payouts thanks to this feature.
Then there’s the Pot Luck feature. On every spin, the leprechaun that you’ll see on screen tosses an assortment of symbols onto the reels. He can toss up to three scatters to help trigger the free spins round, up to three jackpot symbols to help you trigger the jackpot wheel feature, or up to five wilds. If you’re lucky, the leprechaun can help you earn some decent payouts.
Irish Pot Luck is one of many online slots to be themed to the Emerald Isle. It has all the familiar elements commonly associated with Ireland, including leprechauns, lucky horseshoes and glorious green countryside. In terms of features, there are quite a few that make the slot worth playing. Random multipliers can increase the size of your payouts and these can be even bigger during the slot’s free spins round. If you’re lucky enough, you may even get to trigger the jackpot wheel round, where you have a chance of winning the slot’s top payout.
If you like the sound of Irish Pot Luck, make sure you have a go. Spin the reels and see if the leprechaun’s got some special symbols to help you win or trigger some special features. If you’re extra lucky, you may even have a shot at winning the slot’s jackpot prize.
