Online gaming has changed slots entirely, especially in the last few years when games have developed into immersive, engaging experiences that are more than just a traditional three-reel spinner that gets boring after a while. Themed games with huge jackpots, bonus rounds and free spins are now the game of choice and keep players interested for hours, no matter how big or small their budget. Along with amazing graphics, realistic sound effects and intriguing features, games will feature fun themes that help players to feel like they are part of the action. One online slot game that takes players on wild ride is Jack’s Pot, a traditional slot game with a unique twist.
Jack is a weird, wacky and incredibly hairy creature who lives in a dark cave filled with colourful gems hidden amongst the rocks. The aim of the game is to collect the gems, which act as wilds and scatter symbols. There are two types of wilds, Multi-coloured crystals and an Amber Wilds that substitute for other symbols that may be needed to get a match across the lines. Adding these together helps the player to unlock free spins, bonus rounds and of course the huge progressive jackpot, along with some fun animations.
The graphics and theming are a bit different to the same-old ‘spin reels to unlock a picture’ format seen in other games. Jack brings the game to life, sitting at the side of the reels and catching the odd gem that drops from the cave roof. The sound effects are great fun and the symbols are really easy to follow, with 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace making up the images that need to be matched across the lines. Players can choose to activate up to 25 pay lines, with wins made up by matching symbols across these lines. There are maximum wager and auto spin features for players who want to get to the jackpot quicker, but there is also a lower coin value option for those with restricted budgets, with the minimum bet being 1p and the maximum going up to £10.
The Crystal Rock Bonus is where the action happens, unlocked by getting three drill scatter symbols anywhere across the reels. This features offers 8-10 free spins as well as further amber sticky wilds which help to open up bigger wins as the game progresses.
The progressive Crystal Jackpot is a randomly triggered jackpot that is more likely to appear the higher your stake. Players must choose from four coloured crystals, with each being worth a different amount. The beauty of the progressive jackpot is that even if another player manages to hit big, the pot is emptied when you try to do the same.
Jack’s Pot is a great light-hearted slot based on leprechauns that is easy to follow and doesn’t get boring quickly. The bonuses and wilds soon add up and with a bit of time, players can soon start building a decent profit. Just remember to follow some basic slot strategies such as only wagering a set amount from your own money and having a specific ‘cut-off’ point if you are in profit from your original wager.
