The happy little Leprechaun at Blueprint Gaming is much loved. With the success of its other Irish-themed slot machines (Luck O’ The Irish, Irish Frenzy, Wish Upon a Leprechaun, Slots O’Gold, Irish Riches Megaways, and Luck O’ The Irish Megaways), Blueprint is hoping to add Pots O’ Riches to its lineup. The actual gameplay is about as original as the theme, but because it’s part of Blueprint’s Jackpot King system, you may as well give it a try anyhow.
Blueprint Gaming’s Pots O’ Riches is a 5-reel, 20-payline mobile-optimized slot that accepts bets from as low as 0.20 up to €/$200 per spin. The Rainbow’s End bonus has the leprechaun making his way along a trail of multipliers as you listen to a medley of Irish cliches. With any luck of the Irish, you may also trigger the Pots O’ Gold bonus game, where you can win up to 500 times your initial wager. Additionally, there is both a randomly awarded cash reward in the main game and a randomly activated jackpot game.
The graphics are standard fare for an Irish-themed slot, with the exception of an animated leprechaun that helps set it apart. It sounds like the same voice recording used in Slots O’Gold, and perhaps other games as well. In fact, the game’s audio and score were more impressive to us than its visuals. The reels are set against a picturesque rural landscape, and standard playing card values (the 10, J, Q, A, and K) appear alongside a single premium icon, represented by a pot o’ gold. It appears completely stacked on all reels and pays 12.5 times your wager for a combination of five of a kind, making it the most valuable standard symbol. The Celtic knot is the wild. Five of these on an active payline will win you 25 times your wager because it may stand in for any other symbol.
Features of Pots O’Riches (Blueprint Gaming)
Besides the Jackpot King bonus round, Pots O’ Riches offers two other bonus features. The first is a function called Lucky’s Charm. When three or more door-shaped leprechaun burrow scatter symbols appear on the screen, this feature activates. When activated, you’ll get to select a door to reveal a multiplier value and a cash award that may be worth up to 50 times your initial wager.
When three or more leprechaun scatters appear anywhere on the reels, the Rainbow’s End bonus is activated. After pressing the button, a new screen will load, showing a multiplier trail that steadily rises. A random amount of leprechaun steps or a collect sign will be revealed, and you’ll get to choose which of the three horseshoes to disclose it. If you follow the path all the way to the finish, you’ll reach the attraction’s focal point, which is where we are now….
The Pots O’ Gold bonus is activated when you either reach the end of the Rainbow’s End bonus or land three scatter pots of gold on reels 2, 3, and 4. Around the leprechaun, 12 pots spin, awarding multipliers from 2x to 500x. The ‘bonus win’ indication at the top of the screen will update to reflect your new total after the pots have stopped spinning and the random multiplier has been applied. To continue, select one of the 16 clovers on each side of the screen; the word “spin” or “collect” will be shown. You might win up to 500 times your wager if you hit the jackpot in this bonus round.
Pots O’ Riches is part of Blueprint’s Jackpot King system which means there’s a potential for you to trigger a progressive jackpot while playing the game. You need five crown symbols to play for the jackpot if you want to win big. In order to spin the wheel and perhaps win a bet multiplier or one of the jackpots, you must get to the top of the jackpot ladder.
Conclusion: Pots of Gold (Blueprint Gaming)
Because of its unique cultural character, Pots O’ Riches is more likely to resonate with UK players than with those in other countries. The potential is very low, and most of the elements have been recycled from other Blueprint slots, so even if it’s been implemented nicely, it’s hardly the most original or thrilling game you’ll ever play. Slots O’ Gold Megaways (which also contains a leprechaun) is a significantly superior Blueprint game to play if the jackpot game is your goal.
While not without its flaws, Pots O’ Riches is undeniably endearing thanks to its well-rounded gameplay, modest volatility, and plenty of options to unlock. Even if we did not have a good time with it, we know that many other gamers will.
