As with many slots out right now, Jumpin’ Pot by GameArt is inspired by Irish folklore. It’s a perfect theme for online slots, to be honest, the scope of legends and stories, along with superstitions and the typical signs and symbols that we have all come to know well - you’ll find them all present here.
Presented over a very typical 5 x 3 setup with 25 active paylines, this slot will suck you right into the theme from the very start. Firstly, set your betting range by tapping on ‘bet per line’ to be able to set your coin value, ranging from 0.01 to 0.50 EUR or equivalent. Use the spin button to get the reels twirling and tap ‘autoplay’ if you want to kick back and watch the game win you (or lose you) stacks of cash. After each win, you can use the ‘gamble/take’ button to really spice things up.
The symbols on the reels say it all
The wild in this game comes in the form of a Pot of Gold symbol and substitutes for all other symbols to form a win, except for scatter as is usual. You can use the wild to make its own combinations if you get three or more across a payline.
The scatter is rather predictably the four-leaf clover and contributes to scatter wins and activation of the features. Three or more anywhere across the reels will trigger the free spins feature, bringing an initial 10 free spins. Whilst this feature runs extra wilds move one position on every spin, should two ends of landing in the same position an extra mystery pot will be awarded. It’s randomly selected and can pay 100, 50, 30, 15, 10 or 5 times total bet.
Gamble, gamble - but be careful!
These gamble features are notoriously dangerous as they can gobble up your entire winnings, and just so happen to be super-tempting. The good news is that there is a 50/50 chance that you’ll also double your entire winnings. Simply guess the colour of the card to be drawn, black or red, get it right and you win double and can keep going, lose and your back to the base game with nothing.
In these situations, we find ourselves lost for words when the round-up comes along because slots like Jumpin' Pot are so slick and predictable they are bound to be good to play. The typical features are there, the wins are good, the theme is funky and the graphics and sound acceptable. Yep, it’s a good one we suppose.
