Drawing on equal parts of legitimate Gaelic culture and stock Irish holiday imagery of leprechauns and clovers, Pots Of Luck invokes one of the themes most common to online casinos: the hunt for treasure.
It's true that taking home a big pot o' gold is a real possibility here, as it is at any UK online casino. But how likely is it to happen for you here? Will the casino value your time and money? And will you at least have a fun time if luck isn't quite on your side?
Those are the questions we will answer in today's post, as we explore this very green-and-white online casino from Nektan Ltd.
Available Games and Software
Pots Of Luck technically has a full range of casino games, though it is a bit limited in terms of table games. There are eight live dealer games available here, however, all powered by Evolution Gaming. Other table game options are limited to four choices: some fairly bland blackjack varieties and one single-player roulette table.
Bingo is surprisingly prominent here, given that it's not mentioned in the casino name or most of the marketing materials. There usually seem to be five or so games running, with options from 75 to 90 ball in the mix.
Of course, the main feature is a collection of about 300 slots. Some licensed titles that jumped out include the revival of Thundercats by Blueprint and the joint Trump-Kim satire Rocket Men by Tiger Gaming. Progressive jackpot options are a little thin, though: only about half a dozen available.
The browsing tabs at Pots Of Luck allow you to filter by Irish-themed games, and give you recommendations from the leprechaun mascot Seamus. However, in general the navigation is sub-par. There does not appear to be a way to filter for progressive jackpot games, or even solely for slots. The game selection is just kind of plopped in front of you en masse, with the only thing keeping it manageable being the fact that the overall tally of titles isn't very big.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
There are no fees for deposits unless you use Boku, for which you get hit for a 15% charge. Fortunately, there are many other common deposit methods available: credit cards, Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard. The minimum deposit for all is £10, except Boku which is £15. Poor Boku can't catch a break.
Minimum withdrawals are also £10.
Safety and Security
The company is based in Gibraltar and licensed & regulated by both the Gibraltar Gambling Commission and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. Dispute resolution is provided by the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS), and third-party game testing is conducted by NMi.
Bonuses and Player's Club
The welcome bonus at Pots Of Luck gives you a 100% match on a first deposit of up to £100, and will kick in up to 100 free spins at Starburst depending on the deposit amount. There is a 40x wagering requirement, and do note that about 1/3 of the gaming roster here is excluded from it (including all Elk Studios games, nearly all progressive jackpot games and all table games). On top of that, there are about 30 more slots that only contribute 75% to the wagering requirements - check the FAQ page at the Pots Of Luck site for a current full list of both categories.
Promotions seem a bit thin outside of that, but there is a VIP Club to take a look at. This has four levels (Silver, Gold, Premier, Elite) with added benefits upon reaching each level. This is VIP in the sense of "high roller" even at the Silver level rather than a general club for all players, however - you'll have to be invited to join, and the full terms and benefits are not made public as of this writing.
Is Pots Of Luck Casino Worth It?
The small but interesting mix of slots is the best feature here. Outside of that, the game collection is pretty limited overall and there aren't any compelling bonuses. Unless being able to have a menu of Irish-themed games at your disposal is very important for some reason, there isn't much in particular to recommend here.
