9 Pots of Gold slot review (Microgaming)
Pots of Gold is a video slot from Gameburger Studios, one of Microgaming’s preferred suppliers
Gameburger Studios is not known as the most creative game developer, far from it. “Better well nicked than ill-conceived” must surely be the company’s motto.
9 Pots of Gold is a replica of their earlier release, 9 Masks of Fire, and that was another copy of the famous Quick Hits slot.
And what do you get when you make a copy of a letter with a xerox machine? Indeed, a soulless piece of paper. Or, in this case, a slot without a soul, which should never have been released in the first place. Can you tell we are a bit biased? Anyhow, we will give this slot a fighting chance to surprise us. Let’s see.
You can win up to 2,000 x the total bet on 9 Pots of Gold. With the maximum bet active ($€ 60 per spin), that means a maximum grand prize of $€ 120,000.
9 Pots of Gold gameplay and features
9 Pots of Gold is a straightforward video slot with a weary Irish fortune pot-of-gold-at-the-end-of-the-rainbow theme.
The playing field consists of 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and 20 fixed paylines.
Betting starts at 20 cents per spin and runs up to $€ 60 per spin.
The variance is medium. You won’t strike it rich with this video slot unless you play with high stakes and apply the casino hit and run strategy.
The theoretical payout rate is okay: 96.24%.
Symbols and payouts
The pots of gold are by far the most rewarding premium symbols in this slot game. These are scatter symbols and contain the key to that juicy prize.
As of 3 scatters, you already win a cash prize of 1 x your total bet. Afterwards: the more scatters, the higher the reward. The maximum achievable is to spin nine scattered pots of gold. This combination immediately nets you 2,000 x your total bet.
Furthermore, there are wilds (the mushrooms) that replace all symbols except the scatters. Five wilds on an active payline award you a payout of 125 x the total bet.
Then there are three types of green sevens: Triple, Double and Single. This also payout when they occur in a mixed combination.
Five Triple sevens yield 37.50 x the total bet; the Double sevens earn you 20 x the stake, and five Single sevens are worth 7.50 x the bet. Lastly, five mixed sevens pay 3.25 x the wager.
The other symbols are not card symbols, but a harp, the eternal green high hat, four-leaf clover and a bar symbol.
Free spins bonus
In the middle three reels, the Free Spins scatter symbol appears. Spin three, and you get to spin the big free spins wheel.
Give a big whip to the wheel and win:
- Between 10 and 30 free spins
- An additional multiplier of x 2 or x 3
It is possible to retrigger the free spins without a limit.
Our verdict on 9 Pots of Gold
This slot deserves a prize. The prize for the best nothing-burger slot ever.
If not, we advise you to ignore this slot; there are so many more creative and beautiful slots to discover.
On a more contemplative note, we are thankful for a slot like this now and then (not too often, we hope). It creates contrast. 9 Pots of Gold makes us aware that great slots are NOT created by default. It takes a lot of creativity, effort and brilliant people to release the many beautiful 3+ and 4+ star rated slots we review for you.
