9 Pots of Gold Slot Review

9 Pots of Gold: Demo

Go hunting for jackpots at the end of the rainbow in 9 Pots of Gold. Your guide in this 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Microgaming is a lucky leprechaun who goes by the name of Flynn. Highlights include a free spins round with 2x and 3x multipliers and the pots bonus which can award payouts of up to 2,000 x your total bet. Play this medium volatility game on all devices from between 20p and £60 per spin.

Green tinged visuals

The design here is just what you’d expect from an Irish luck-themed slot. The gold edged reels feature a collection of green symbols which include bars, 4-leaf clovers and top hats. They’re joined by single, double and treble 7 symbols. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the latter and you’ll pocket an award of 2.5, 16.25 or 37.5 x your bet.

The lucky toadstool is the wild. This can land on all 5 reels and substitute for all the standard symbols. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds in a line and you’ll scoop an award of 6.25, 25 or 125x your bet.

Pot of Gold worth up to 2,000 x bet

Joining the standard symbol is the pot full of treasure. This special scatter symbol can deliver some big rewards. Landing 3 or more of them guarantees a prize. Land 9 of them on the same spin and you’ll hit the jackpot of 2,000x your bet:

  • 3 pots = 1x total bet
  • 4 pots = 5x total bet
  • 5 pots = 15x total bet
  • 6 pots = 40x total bet
  • 7 pots = 100x total bet
  • 8 pots = 500x total bet
  • 9 pots = 2,000x total bet

Free spins with 2x or 3x multipliers

The other extra on offer in 9 Pots of Gold is a free spins round. It’s triggered by landing the free spins symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin. You’ll then head to a new screen where you’ll spin the bonus wheel.

This determines how many free spins you’ll receive (between 10 and 30) and whether the winning from those spins will be doubled or trebled. Landing 3 free spins symbols results in a retrigger and another round of free spins, complete with multiplier. In fact, you can retrigger infinitely.

Surprisingly good

9 Pots of Gold is a typical luck-themed slot. The reels are filled with Irish stereotypes and the gameplay is straightforward. Free spins with multipliers are always a good combination though and they can result in 7,500 x bet wins on every free spin. You also have the pots bonus which can deliver some big rewards.

As far as volatility goes, we’re in the medium range. If you like this popular theme, it’s worth going treasure hunting in 9 Pots of Gold. Another option would be Rainbow Riches Megaways from Barcrest as it offers up to 117,649 ways to win and 12,500 x bet wins on every spin.
