Pot O’ Gold Slots

Pot-O'-GoldPot O’ Gold is one of the better looking classic slots you will see right now, and it is designed by the guys from Amaya. With an Irish themed design, Pot O’ Gold is full of clovers, leprechauns and treasures. The action takes place in a forest somewhere and it’s a gorgeous design that we’re seeing here, with trees and green leaves surrounding the reels and having a big impact on how it looks. The leprechaun theme is quite popular among developers of slot machines, so it’s a common sight, but usually they don’t look as good as this title.

The 3 reels of this slot machine are occupied by a single payline. Despite its classic inspiration, the design sets the tone and keeps this a modern game, with features matching that assumption (free games, multipliers, wilds). The regular payout doesn’t give you a lot to work with, only about $4,000, but there is a progressive jackpot as well.

Features of Pot O’ Gold

You will find that this is no ordinary classic slot machine as soon as you take a look at the paytable and the feature section. It’s a bit unusual in the way it activates these features, requiring the use of 1 or 2 coins for regular prizes, while the 3rd coin will get you all the features but without bigger prizes.

Two different wild symbols will give the player an extra advantage while playing this slot, each one offering its own multiplier. The 5 Times Pay wild is the first one, a symbol that replaces any regular symbol, but doesn’t do anything for the scatters or the other wild. This is a wild symbol with a x5 multiplier.

The second wild is the Leprechaun, also capable of substituting for other symbols. It also has a x5 multiplier attached and it can substitute only for regular symbols. If you get both one 5 Times Pay wild and one Leprechaun wild, both contribute their multipliers and give you 25x the regular prize. Both wilds will also offer the top payout worth 4,000 coins or the progressive jackpot, but the multipliers I’ve mentioned don’t apply to them.

The Bonus Rainbow is the one you can expect the free spins to come from. They’re called bonus spins here, and they need the player to get this symbol on the payline while using three coins for the wager.

All the features I’ve mentioned here are only active during spins activated by three coin bets. The game is a true classic, without features, as long as you keep the bets to one or two coins.

Betting options and jackpots

Pot O’ Gold, despite the fact that it offers a progressive jackpot, doesn’t have large wager requirements in place. The use of 3 coins at their maximum value will only get the bet to $3, with coin denominations at $1. The smallest coin value is $0.05 and the player is allowed to use only one of them for a bet.

The payouts go up to 4,000 coins ($4,000) when two coins are used, while the use of three coins will get you the progressive jackpot instead. You can win the top prize in one of two ways. You either get three Leprechaun wilds on the line, or you get the 5 Times Pay wild to occupy all three positions.

Design and symbols

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of the game’s design. It’s a better looking slot than many of the modern titles, and this is exactly how a classic should look like in this day of age. It has few classic elements part of it and it has a combination of gold and green colors on the screen that looks great.

Symbols: Leprechaun (wild, progressive jackpot), 5 Times Pay (wild, progressive jackpot), Bonus Rainbow (scatter), Clover (120 coins), Clover Bar (100 coins), Triple Bar (60 coins), Double Bar (40 coins), Single Bar (20 coins) and Pot of Gold (20 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

If you’re sick of classic slot machines that you can’t stand to look at, give Pot O’ Gold a try. With as many features as it has, plus a progressive jackpot, it’s not a true classic anymore, but it’s a lot more fun.

The Pot O’ Gold slot machine is offered through the Amaya platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
