Pot of Gold Slots
A pot of gold sure would be a cool thing to find. Rumor has it that any rainbow you can find the end of has that pot waiting for you. But have you ever managed to trace a rainbow to its end? It always seems to move…
We know the Pot of Gold slot carries with it plenty of promise, so we thought we'd share details of it here with you. Let's get underway.
Developer info you should know
If you've played some Arrows Edge slots before, you have another one to try here too.
You can go through to the demo first if you wish
We'd recommend you do just that, as you can find out more about what makes the game work and what to look for if you switch to real play later.
Nothing won for guessing this theme
Pots of gold regularly appear in slots using the lucky Irish theme. Think of a leprechaun and lots of lucky charms and you'll get the idea.
What's the design like?
This isn't the most detailed slot we've ever seen, and there are no 3D graphics in action either. That said, we can see some nice touches here, with a friendly leprechaun cropping up along with tons of those lucky clovers underneath the reels. Who would have thought, hmm? Maybe they'll bring some good fortune our way if we play.
How to play this online slot game
The Pot of Gold slot introduces us to a larger reel set than we expected, with a 5 x 4 format in action here. There's a progressive jackpot involved as well - the Cash Grab jackpot. You might have seen this in other Arrows Edge slots you've played already.
Let's move on to the special symbols now. The first is the clover, acting here as a wild symbol and turning up on the middle three reels. This substitutes for all but two other symbols in the game. The scattered pot of gold is one of those, with the other being a golden coin. This has another role to play, and we'll come to that later.
Paylines for Pot of Gold slots
What would you say if we told you there were none in this game? That's a good thing, though, because it means they've given us all potential 1,024 ways spread over those five reels.
What are the minimum and maximum bets like?
The minimum here is 50 cents, as the game asks for 50 credits per spin to cover all those potential ways to collect prizes. There are many other betting options too though, reaching the impressive $300 at the top end of the scale.
Did we like the paytable?
This is always an important feature of the game. Arrows Edge usually marks it out with a question mark, and they've done so here as well. You'll see it beneath the reels. We recommend you look through it before you play.
Does the game have a bonus feature?
Yes - it's called Golden Spins and occurs as part of the free spin feature… if you can trigger it! We'll cover it in the next section of our review.
Free spins for the Pot of Gold slot
Three scatters would be the typical trigger for free games, and that's true here as well. Finding three scattered pots of gold is the key to unlocking it to start with. This brings you a random quantity of spins - five at the minimum, with 10 or 15 spins possible to receive instead. You can unlock further freebies the same way you originally did.
All the usual icons turn up during your free games, but you'll also see those gold coins we mentioned earlier. The idea here is to find six gold coins on a spin. If you do that, the bonus round Golden Spins begins.
You get three spins to find more gold coins. The original triggering ones become sticky for the duration of the round, while everything else vanishes. You then get the chance to try and find more of those coins as your Golden Spins reduce to zero. Whenever another coin (or more) appears in a spin, your Golden Spins go back to the original set of three. You get the idea.
Two outcomes are possible here. You might run out of Golden Spins before the screen is filled with coins. If so, the values shown on all the coins are added together to award you your prize. This could be a decent one too. However, a bigger prize is in store if you manage to get a gold coin in each of the 20 available positions.
Do we know what the return to player percentage is?
No - this information didn't appear on the game screen or the additional details on the Arrows Edge website.
How highly do we rate this slot game?
This is a superb slot even in 2D. It has several neat features and some cool icons involved that are worth watching for. We hope you get to the free games and the Golden Spins, but even if that doesn't happen, you've got the chance to look for various prizes along the way. Worthy of eight points out of 10, for sure.
The jackpot represents the best prize
As you knew it would, right? The paytable reveals where the other prize amounts are hiding.
