Magical leprechauns tempt you with overflowing pots of golden treasure in 9 Pots of Gold online slot by Microgaming and Gameburger studios. The slot’s gold-trimmed reels are set against a background of a multitude of lucky 4 leaf clovers. The symbols are all rendered in a fun, cartoonish manner and are all tinged with green to match the theme. If you notice that the slot’s gameplay bears a striking resemblance to 9 Masks of Fire, also by Microgaming, you would be right. This slot is effectively a clone of its forerunner, but this isn’t necessarily a drawback as it was a well-enjoyed title.  A free spin wheel and pot pays are on hand to get you to the prize at the end of the rainbow.

Game Symbols:

  • A BAR symbol, a four-leaf clover, a leprechaun’s hat, and a Celtic harp are the lower-value symbols.
  • The higher value symbols are represented by single, double and treble 7’s.
  • A gold pot filled with treasures  doubles as both the scatter to trigger free spins and the game’s bonus wins symbol. 
  • The wild symbol is a toadstool and substitutes for any other symbol, except the scatter, to help you form winning combinations.

Bonus Features

Free Spins wheel

If 3 scatter symbols land on reels 2, 3and 4, a free spins wheel will appear. The wheel is divided into 10 segment which hold combinations of free spins and multipliers. You can win from 10 to 30 free spins and up to a 3x multiplier. You can also get more free spins while the feature is active by landing more scatters. 

Pot Pays

The golden pot scatter doesn’t just trigger free spins. If 3 or more of these symbols appear, you will be eligible for a guaranteed coin prize. You can get prizes of 1x, 5x, 15x, 40x, 100x, 500x, and 2,000x your stake for 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 scatter symbols respectively.  Obviously, free spins will run in parallel to this bonus feature, but the multipliers will not be applied to any pot pays.

Our Verdict

If you loved 9 Masks of Fire, you will love 9 Pots of Gold. This title is an easy-going affair with medium volatility and a competitive RTP.  Plenty of wins come your way during the base game, so the frustration of waiting for scatters to land is greatly reduced. The free spins and pot plays run in tandem to deliver you some great wins, with a top potential of $120 000 to put in your pocket.   Fans of the Irish /leprechaun theme will enjoy the visual execution of this game which is well crafted and pays ample homage to its subject matter.  While far from a life-shattering, high stakes slot, this title stands out in its own right and will give you hours of enjoyment.
