Magic Pot Slot by Games OS Review
Magic Pot by Games OS is a slot with a simple gameplay, it has the usual 5 reels and 25 lines. All the favourite features, both Wild and Scatter symbols and even a bonus game are found here. The maximum available win is 3,000 coins.
The slot is themed to the Celtic folklore, leprechauns and their treasures. Developers have picked a great soundtrack in folk style which you can listen to without even spinning the reels.
Game rules of the Magic Pot slot
To start playing the Magic Pot slot machine, you ought to place the bet first. For this, you have to adjust only two of its options:
- The bet per line
- The number of active lines
You can do it with two buttons on the control panel —
- And Add Line
Each click of these buttons raises the bet by one point.
Also, you can use two sections found above these buttons to change the bet. The "+/-" buttons are to the right and to the left of each section. These buttons are convenient because with their help you can not only increase the bet but, if necessary, decrease as well.
Developers of Magic Pot allow you to use 8 bet options per line — from 0.01 to 0.8 coins. As it was already mentioned, lines can be from one to twenty-five.
One more button, Bet Max, is found to the right of these two buttons. It can be used to raise up the bet to the maximum with one click. In fact, only the number of lines remains at the highest of 25, the bet per line does not change. You should also take into account that clicking the Bet Max button automatically starts one spin of the reels.
Above this button, you can see another section — Total Bet. It shows the total bet.
The slot developers have provided the auto spins function to prevent you from having to hit the Spin button before each reel-spin. You can initiate five or ten automatic spins directly from the control panel. If you want more, you need to use the Auto Spins button. In the menu of this feature, you are asked to choose from 7 options for the number of auto spins from 5 to 1,000.
In the right top corner of the control panel, just below the reels, you can find the Win section that displays any win from the previous spin. And in the centre, you can see the Paytable section that allows you to access the pay table and graphical display of the game rules.
Next, let's look at the game window itself. Two icons are in the bottom left:
- A loudspeaker
- The full screen icon
The first one helps to disable music, the second opens the game window in full screen.
Finally, if you look at the top right, you can see the word Balance that shows you how many credits are left. Initially, there are always 500.
Symbols and factors of the Magic Pot slot machine
The slot comes with special and regular symbols.
The Wild symbol
The Wild symbol is a lucky leaf of clover bringing good luck. It replaces all other pictures except for the Bonus and Scatter to make a combination a winning one. Five Wild symbols earn you a payout of 3,000 coins. All other combinations with the Wild do not pay.
The Scatter symbol
The Scatter symbol is the picture of an old boot forgotten in the forest, in which the birds have already built a nest and laid eggs. Three or more of these pictures landing on the reels start a series of free spins:
- 3 pictures earn 5 free spins
- 4 — 10 free spins
- 5 — 15 free spins
There are 7 standard symbols used in the Magic Pot slot. All of them are themed to life in the forest, partly to its magic side and partly to the common one. Factors of many pictures are the same:
- Mug of beer, lantern and magic crystals earn you 3, 12, 40 and 200 credits for 2, 3, 4 and 5 pictures respectively
- Mushrooms, acorns, cranberries and blackberries — 3, 15 and 60 credits
Just to remind you, playing on the slot is completely free. This version of the slot machine is designed for reference only and to play for fun.
The risk game becomes available after every winning spin. You may not agree to play it and take the winnings yourself or you may decide to try increasing it. To accept the risk game, you need to click the image of a lantern to the right of the control panel.
In the risk game, you can see a face-down deck of playing cards in front of you and you have to guess which card is going to be dealt next (its colour or suit). If you guess the colour, the win will be doubled, if you guess the suit, it will be quadrupled. If you cannot guess, the winnings will disappear.
You are allowed to play a maximum of five rounds in the risk round. After five successful attempts or the first unsuccessful, you return to the main game.
Celtic Treasures bonus game
The bonus game is activated if three (or more) trigger-symbols land on the reels along an active line. This symbol is a pot of gold after which the slot is named. In the bonus game, you can see the map that shows the ancient Celtic spirits and their country. Your goal is to guess which of the spirits is storing the treasure. If you succeeded in guessing, the credits hidden by the figure will be transferred to your account. But you need to be cautious not to choose a figure that not only doesn't hide the treasure but also stops the bonus game.
Despite the simplicity of the gameplay, the advantage of the Magic Pot slot machine is the small number of symbols. This advantage is "balanced" by small factors.
