Jack In a Pot slot review (Red Tiger)
Jack In a Pot is a surprising video slot by Red Tiger Gaming that is very different from their usual work
It’s the first time Red Tiger Gaming releases a cluster pays slot that has a playing field of 7 x 7 symbols.
There are mini boosters to be won, and you save up until you have enough to reach the bonus feature. In terms of gameplay, Jack In a Pot has a lot in common with Reactoonz, which is easily one of our all-time favourite slots. A big difference is that the variance seems to be a little lower in comparison to Reactoonz.
Jack In a Pot is a slot based on Irish leprechaun folklore. One of the little people with a high pitched voice and weakness for pints is central to the game.
At the end of the rainbow are the pots of gold, and our jolly friend will do everything in his power to help you make a nice profit.
How does the Jack In a Pot video slot work?
Instead of paylines, you need a cluster of at least five identical symbols to get a winning combination in this game. The larger the cluster, the higher the payout.
Winning symbols disappear to make way for new symbols that land in the vacant spaces on the 7 x 7 symbol playing field. That way, you can have winning combinations several times in a row.
In the meantime, you can save up extra boosters, which can be used when no winning combination came up.
You can make a bet of $€ 0.20 up to $€ 40 per spin.
Variance and payout rate
Determining the variance is not very straightforward. This is mainly because of the free spin bonus setup, where all saved boosters are used one by one during the last spin. We suspect this can generate incredibly large payouts, but unfortunately, we haven’t experienced this first hand yet. To be on the safe side, we peg the variance at medium.
In terms of payout rate, Jack In a Pot disappoints us, to be honest: 95.17% – that is about one percentage point too low.
Symbols and payouts
The gold coins are worth most with 800 x the total bet for a cluster of 40 or more of the same symbols.
The other premium symbols are worth a maximum of between 50 x and 250 x your total bet.
Low-value symbols consist of the familiar card symbols (plus a circle), and they yield between 15 x and 35 x the total bet when you have 40+ identical symbols.
There are four different bonus boosters, which you can win if the corresponding booster symbol is part of a winning combination (they also function as wild).
The booster is then stored in the golden pot, which is also home to our friend Jack.
As soon as you don’t get a winning combination, Jack the Leprechaun will conjure up your saved bonus booster(s) and help you make a winning spin after all.
These are the four boosters:
- Rainbow Swap: A rainbow appears before turning into a matching symbol.
- Beer Reel: Beer taps open wide and pour out identical symbols!
- Magic Pipe: Jack blows in his pipe and creates mega symbols.
- Hat Trick: Jack’s top hat vacuums all the low-value symbols from the screen.
Free spins bonus with Feature Frenzy
You will win 10 free spins if you collect 4 four-leaf clovers in one turn.
During these free spins, the aim is to collect as many bonus boosters as possible.
Once you’ve completed all free spins, the Feature Frenzy starts. Here, all collected bonus boosters are placed as bets one by one.
Our verdict on the Jack In a Pot video slot
Jack In a Pot is a very entertaining video slot. That is something you can count on with the talented pros at Red Tiger.
Saving up bonus boosters is a fun gimmick that prevents the game from becoming boring too quickly.
It’s quite a challenge to win the free spin bonus, so make sure you start with a high enough balance.
The Feature Frenzy is the highlight of this slot. It’s a satisfying feeling to sit back and watch Jack bet all your saved boosters.
The somewhat low payout rate of just over 95% is the only downside of this slot.
3.9 out of 5 stars.
