9 Pots of Gold Slot Game (Microgaming)

9 Pots of Gold SlotMicrogaming, in conjunction with, Gameburger Studios, have come up with alone for their previous game (9 Masks of Fire), which has given birth to a new game by the name 9 Pots of Gold.

From the look of things, the developers have made a few changes to the current game, and the most notable one is the graphics. 9 Pots of Gold has an Irish theme, but everything else seems to be the same thing found on 9 Masks of Fire.

A Personal Experience with 9 Pots of Gold 

Like most modern slots, 9 Pots of Gold is 5 reels machine, with a total of 20 pay lines.  A lot of the features that I have seen on this slot include the common things like wilds, scatters, free spins, Pot Pays as well as a wheel of fortune.

Betting and Prizes

After registering to play this slot on my favourite online casino, it was time to check the pay scale. Using my smartphone, I headed to the spinning section, and here, I was required to place bets of between $0.20 and $60 per spin.

The highest payout potential that you can expect with 9 Pots of Gold is 2,000 xs the stake, which amounts to around $120,000. This may seem a little low especially if you are a high roller like me; however, since the slot has medium volatility, it is not a very risky slot to play.

Return to Player is quite reasonable, and currently, it sits at 96.24% which works well with the slot’s medium volatility.

9 Pots of Gold Slot Features

The wild which comes in the form of a Toadstool is one of the most obvious features. You can use it to substitute for all other regular symbols, in addition to using it to form winning combinations. If you manage to cover the entire line with its symbols you will be awarded pay of 125x the stake.

To enjoy some free spins, I was required to first land three scatters within the slot’s middle three columns.  After successfully doing that, I was then directed to a feature known as a Free Spin Wheel.  

This is the feature that decides the number of rounds (up to 30), together with their multiplier (2x or 3x). If you are lucky enough to deliver additional scatters (up to 9 are possible), you will be able to retrigger the feature and enjoy the exact number of rounds.

Last but not least is the Pot Pays.  This feature requires you to deliver some Pot of Gold scatters, which should land at least three times within the slot’s middle reels. They have a good price range of between 1x and 2,000xs.

Theme & Design

The theme of 9 Pots of Gold is the most boring thing ever! The Irish theme does not offer much help.  However, the slot’s design is good, and its symbols are also well designed.

And talking of symbols, here are the ones that you can expect on this slot game. They include pots of gold, toadstools, shamrocks, double 7s, single 7s, harps, triple 7s, top hats, and bar logos.


9 Pots of Gold is not a uniquely designed slot as I have seen a number of other Irish-themed slots.  Actually, there is no originality in it as Microgaming has just cloned it from their previous release, 9 Masks of Fire.

However, its reasonable RTP and medium volatility make it a great choice for gamers of all levels.
