Irish Pot Luck Review
Irish Pot Luck
Irish Pot Luck is a bright, vibrant and insanely cheerful 5-reel, 20 payline slot developed by NetEnt that celebrates all things Irish!
This wonderfully-designed slot has real Gonzo's Quest vibes, with a cheerful ginger Leprechaun sat to the left of the reels, throwing in wild, scatter and jackpot symbols whenever he feels like it!
What's not to love about Irish Pot Luck? The game reels are set upon what looks to be an old ruin surrounded by Irish stone circles covered in ancient runes! Butterflies often fly by, interact with the landscape and even land upon the nose of the gleaming animated Leprechaun situated to the left of the reels. Speaking of which, keep an eye out for whenever the Leprechaun reaches into his pot of gold, as he often likes to reward lucky players with wild, scatter and jackpot symbols.
The symbols themselves are exactly what you'd expect from an Irish-themed slot! Low paying symbols are the following card suits: Club, spade, diamond and heart. High paying symbols are a pipe, a Leprechaun's hat, a Celtic harp and a horseshoe. The games' special symbols are a wild coin with a W imprinted on it, a red square with JACKPOT printed on it and a blue square with a rainbow and SCATTER printed on it.
In terms of sound, yes, this game is exactly what you'd expect from an Irish-themed slot! Cheerful, upbeat flute music plays throughout... And we love it!
This game features a couple of unique mechanics that make it stand out from other stereotypical 5-reel Irish-themed slots... Firstly we have a sign-post to the right of the reels spins EVERY time the reels do, upon the conclusion of a spin, the sign-post will stop as well, displaying a random multiplier which is then awarded on top of whatever is won, which is pretty decent!
The second mechanic this slot features is the Leprechaun throwing random bonus symbols onto the reels every few spins! It's not new to see regular wilds, scatters and jackpot symbols land on the reels regularly, but the way it's been visualised in this slot is something special, and we love it!
In terms of general gameplay, this slot plays like most standard NetEnt slots, the action bar runs across the bottom of the game reels and is transparent so that nothing is taken away from the game's fantastic design. From left to right there's a hamburger menu with game settings, an information button that displays the paytable, this is followed by stake selection, autoplay, play and turbo buttons.
On the top of the reels are three fixed local jackpots totals, the Mini Jackpot, Midi Jackpot and Mega Jackpot.
Not only does this medium volatility slot offer players multipliers worth up to 15x on each and every base game spin (which is fantastic), but it can see players win a total of 5,000x their stake upon triggering the game's Mega Jackpot. If that wasn't enough, the RTP is also decent as well at 96.06%.
It's hardly surprising that we enjoyed playing Irish Pot Luck, it might be your stereotypical Irish-themed slot, but that's not to say it isn't one of the better ones! NetEnt have filled this game with some brilliant bonus features and mechanics and it had us hooked from the very first spin.
