Are you ready for one of the biggest catches you'll ever land? If you think we mean a marlin or something similar, you'd be mistaken, as this catch we're referring to could be a potentially great cash prize. Fishin' Pots of Gold is fresh off the Gameburger Studios production floor and bringing a feature that allows you to cash fish, or rather catch the cash values that come attached to them. Players can also trigger free spins here, and you'll also find an interactive feature that increases your cash. To top it all off, there's an Irish theme that sees a cheeky leprechaun manning the fishing rod.
Gameburger Studios falls under the Microgaming umbrella, and if you aren't aware of Microgaming, they're only one of the biggest and most accomplished casino software companies that have been releasing online casino titles for decades. With Fishin' Pots of Gold, they decided that players deserved a unique hybrid of a theme, which sees the Irish theme cross with a fishing one. If you've played any of the Fishin' Frenzy slots, of which there are quite a few, then you might recognise some of the look and feel from other games. One of the core elements to note in this online slot is that any fish symbol that falls does so with a cash value attached. This is something we’ll come back to a bit later on to explain how it all works.
Players won't be coming into a slot that carries the most expansive wagering window with Fishin' Pots of Gold. It's been set to cater for most budgets, although it could be said that high rollers might feel a little underwhelmed. The maximum stake of £40 per spin sounds super high to most, but some players really like to shoot the lights out of wagering limits. The minimum wager is 10p, so as you can tell, there should be an environment for everyone. The maximum win you can reel in is 5,000x your stake, and if you manage to achieve it, you'll have done very well for yourself.
We’ve already mentioned that fish fall as symbols on any given spin, but there are various others that you can also expect to see land and potentially form 3, 4 and 5 of a kind winning combinations. The lower paying symbols consist of playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A, while the symbols with higher values include a float, a lure, a leprechaun’s fishing boots and a tackle box.
You’ll find a scatter symbol which is referred to as the Free Spins symbol. Another symbol that can fall is leprechaun fisherman, and this is known as the ‘Collect’ symbol. The collect icon is also wild, meaning it acts as all regular symbols to create wins.
This is where the 'fishing' aspect of Fishin' Pots of Gold really comes into play, or rather the 'Collect' aspect. In regular play, which is where you'll be playing for the majority of the time, the Leprechaun will only fall on reel 5. However, when he does, and a fish with a cash value lands anywhere else on the reels, that cash value is collected and paid out to you. There are jackpot symbols that can fall and also get collected. Of the four jackpots you really want to collect, the Mega is worth potentially 5,000x your bet.
If you land three or more Free Spins icons on the same spin, you'll have triggered a free spins feature. The number of spins awarded are as follows:
· 3 scatters – 10 free spins
· 4 scatters – 15 free spins
· 5 scatters – 20 scatters
There's also something called the Accumulation Trail in Fishin' Pots of Gold which sees you accumulating Collect symbols to add multipliers to your overall takings in the free spins. There's no doubt that there's plenty to be won here, especially as the collect function does make the chance to boost your kitty easier than in most titles. No need to venture out to a body of water for your prize – just use your nearest digital device.
