Slots O’ Gold is an Irish-inspired slot game that gives you plenty of opportunities to win your very own pot of gold – or at least enough money to fill one! Taking the usual visual design elements of leprechauns, four-leaf covers and rainbows, this slot game focuses on offering a simple let rewarding gambling experience for almost any player!
How Does It Play?
Slots O’ Gold uses a standard five-reel design, giving you a total of 10 different paylines to win from. The instantly-recognizable Lucky Leprechaun symbol acts as a special Wild, turning the entire reel into a big vertical Wild space and giving you a free re-spin to increase the chance of you earning a big payout. You can even trigger the Rainbow Respin feature, which gives you three stacked Wilds and a really high chance of earning something good!
Since Slots O’ Gold is one of the many games under the Jackpot King network, meaning that their special rules apply – if you see five crown symbols appear in your game, you’ll earn their special jackpot, giving you a sudden boost to your winnings.
Instructions for Betting
Although Slots O’ Gold isn’t too complex, it’s still helpful to have a step-by-step breakdown of what to expect:
- Set your total stake using the Total Bet button, or choose one of the bet options to set the amount you’re playing with.
- Click the big SPIN button to start spinning the reels.
- Alternatively, you can use the Autoplay function to set up a number of automatic spins if you want to use the same bet every time. This can be canceled early at any time.
- If you get a winning combination of symbols (3-5 matching symbols, or some of the bonus triggers), then you’ll win some money. It’ll immediately go into your account balance, so you can start betting with it straight away if you want.
- If you trigger five Jackpot King symbols, you’ll get the Jackpot King bonus, on top of any other winnings you happen to get from that spin.
How the Reels Work
There are a few specifics you might want to know about the rules for the reels, too. TO start, all line wins are multiplied based on what you actually get on the winning line, as well as the amount you actually bet. If multiple lines win at once, they’ll all add together into a single payout, too.
If you manage to get multiple wins based on a single line, only the highest one will pay out – thankfully, this means that you won’t be stuck with the lowest payout on each line. Five-of-a-kind wins will pay from left to right.
The Wild Symbol
It’s already been mentioned, but the Wild symbol in Slots O’ Gold can be substituted for any other symbol – however, during normal gameplay, they’ll only appear in the middle three reels, and not on the ends. If you activate a Rainbow Respin, the special Leprechaun Wild will cover an entire reel all at once, and will stay there while the others re-spin – it’ll end once you stop getting Leprechaun Wilds, which often happens after a maximum of three respins.
Keep in mind than the Wild symbols can’t substitute for special bonus symbols, so they’re functionally the same as any standard symbol. As with regular spins, only the highest win on each reel will pay out, even if the Wilds mean that there’s more than one at a time.
The Autoplay function on Slots O’ Gold allows you to automatically place up to 100 bets, which will then be carried out one after the other without needing extra input. You set your stake as you would with regular bets, but then click AUTOPLAY and chose how many bets you want to place. You also have a Loss Limit option that allows you to set how much you’re willing to lose, meaning that you won’t burn through your funds if you have a bad streak.
Autoplay will automatically turn off if you activate any kind of game-altering bonus, and you can stop it at any time by clicking the big STOP button. This won’t stop it mid-spin, so be sure to click it before a new spin starts.
The Jackpot King Deluxe Pot
You can trigger the Jackpot King Deluxe Bonus at any time by getting 5 Jackpot King symbols across all five reels, which leads to one of several bonuses. This system can be activated with any stake as long as you’re on a Jackpot King game, so if you’ve had experience with it in the past, it’ll be the same here too.
Once it’s active, you can spin the reels to start building up Crowns and move up a “Win Ladder” – once you get over fifteen Crowns, you’re entered into the Wheel King feature. After each spin of the reels, you’re allowed to choose one of a few icons:
- COLLECT, which stops the side feature immediately and gives you a bonus win based on the bets placed on the Win Ladder.
- SPIN, which spins the reels again and adds more Crowns to your ladder based on what the symbols are.
- WHEEL KING, which takes you to the Wheel King round immediately.
The Wheel King feature itself is a big wheel that contains multiple different segments, offering things like progressive jackpots and winnings multipliers. This is the only place that you can win the Jackpot King Deluxe Jackpots.
Once a jackpot is won, it resets back to a certain reserve value and starts climbing again. Remember that this is a progressive jackpot, so it’s being build up based on other players who fail to get it – because of this, it’ll be a different amount every time you access it.
The chance of winning the jackpot is based on the overall jackpot value, since some of the pots must be won before they hit a certain amount of money. This means that the closer you get, the more likely you are to earn them – this applies to both the Regal and Royal pots, with a “must be won by” value of £35,000 and £3,500, respectively.
Two players can’t get the jackpot at the same time – even if they do, the second player will get the reserve pot instead. This is very unlikely to happen, but it can, especially for the Regal and Royal pots for the reasons mentioned above. Incidentally, both of these smaller jackpots are funded by the feature’s operator, rather than the players themselves.
How Does the Jackpot Progress?
The main Progressive Jackpot increases based on 0.77% of the total payments and contributions made by players, meaning that it’ll build up faster if more players are actively spending money on the game. While the return-to-player is low, any player who wins will receive a huge amount of money, more than enough to cover what they’ve spent trying to get the jackpot. There are no other requirements for playing it, so you don’t need any kind of VIP status or total playtime to access it.
Remember that you’ll need to confirm your identity with the site before you can claim the money, and it’ll go into your bank directly rather than into your gambling account.
