Pots of Luck Casino United Kingdom 2017 Review

Score: 4/5

The Pots of Luck Online Casino is a wagering portal that’s one of many that’s been kicked into existence by Nektan (Gibraltar) Limited. This online casino is hosted by Seamus, a tiny Irish lucky leprechaun (is there any other kind?) who probably hopes that a lot of his lucky Irish luck (but not too much) will rub off on you. There’s a very distinct Irish theme to this casino, which is not too hard to achieve given the number of Irish-themed slots games there are out there.

Nektan have brought into existence plenty of high-powered online casinos – Tiny Slots Casino, Whirlwind Slots Casino and Fruity Win Casino are considered three of their best. Like most of Nektan’s offerings, the Pots of Luck Online Casino is licensed by the Government of Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission.

Welcome bonus

100% matched deposit bonus up to £100, plus one hundred free spins on Starburst.

Play Now

There’s something of a bonus bonanza available at the Pots of Luck Online Casino, as you can clearly see when you join the site.

Welcome bonus – there’s a three-stage welcome bonus available here, as follows:

  • 1st deposit – 100% matched deposit bonus up to £100, plus one hundred free spins on Starburst.
  • 2nd deposit – 200% matched deposit bonus up to £200.
  • 3rd deposit – 50% match deposit bonus up to £200.

For each bonus the minimum a player needs to deposit is £10. Your one hundred free spins will be added to your account after your deposit and they are worth £0.10 each, and are valid for seven days. Your winnings are paid as bonus money and like all bonus money and deposit money for a bonus here it must be wagered thirty times over before it can be cashed out. Bonus money remains valid for twenty-eight days before it is removed from your account, and the maximum you can win from any bonus offer is four times the bonus amount.

Only slots can be used to meet wagering requirements. Additionally, the following slots cannot be used: Dracula, Guns N’ Roses, Jimi Hendrix, South Park, South Park: Reel Chaos, Divine Fortune, The Invisible Man, Cleopatra MegaJackpot, Siberian Storm Megajackpot, Isle O’Plenty, Wolf Run Megajackpot, Star Lanterns Megajackpot, Gong Xi Fa Cai, Super Spinner, Genie Jackpots, Winstar, Justice League, Batman, Superman, The Flash, Green Lantern, An Evening with Holly Madison, Psycho, James Dean, Thunderstruck II and Avalon.

There are a couple of other aspects of the welcome bonus you need to be aware of before you claim this welcome deal. Firstly, any wagers on either blackjack or roulette will not count towards your wagering expectations. Secondly, there is a maximum amount you can win, which is set at four times the amount of the bonus that you’ve been awarded. If you win more than this amount, then that excess will be removed from your account when you cash out.

Range of games

One criticism of Nektan-powered sites is that they are a little lacking when it comes to table games. However, it seems that Nektan have listened to customer whinges and recently added more table games to their portfolio. Whereas it used to be a case of just one version apiece of blackjack and roulette, now blackjack at least is much better represented.

There’s also a shiny live casino here, with blackjack, baccarat and roulette.

There’s never been an issue with the amount of slots available at Nektan sites, and that’s certainly not an issue at Pots of Luck Online Casino. There are countless slots here including classics such as Cleopatra and Gonzo’s Quest, plus progressive jackpot slots like MegaJackpots Star Lanterns. Doubtless you will at least have a lot of fun at this site if online slots ‘are your thing’.

As you may have noticed we have not as yet mentioned any live games at this online casino. There is in fact only one – live roulette. It seems really odd that an online casino would have only one single live game, but that appears to be the case.

Pros and Cons

  • Lots of excellent slots
  • Very generous bonus – nice!
  • The promotions don’t stop once you’ve used your welcome bonus
  • Free spins! Yippee!
  • Only one single live casino game
  • No 24/7 live chat (limited hours only) – scandalous!

Layout and usability

If you guessed there would be a great deal of green at the Pots of Luck Online Casino they you are not going to be disappointed! Seamus the lucky leprechaun pops up everywhere with the latest bonus deals and news about the most recent additions – game-wise – to the site.

Nektan-powered online casinos all share the same theme, and you get the impression that the site is designed with mobile phone and tablets in mind, rather than desktops. The game selection process is very simple – there’s a small menu underneath the advertising banner to use to select the right category, then you simply select the game you want via the game selection thumbnails that appear.

We mentioned previously that we think Pots of Luck has very definitely been designed with smart phones and tablets in mind. This makes it very easy to use the Pots of Luck online casino on your mobile device – ideal when you are out and about and you want to kill some time with a little bit of mobile wagering.

The mobile version of this site works equally well on both iOS and Android-powered mobile devices.

Promotions for existing customers

Seamus the Leprechaun keeps the promos rolling in during your time at his online casino:

Magic Mondays – deposit at least £10 on a Monday and you will automatically receive ten free spins on a selective slots game. Your spins are valid for forty-eight hours and must be wagered thirty times over.

Wednesday Win Boost – boost your winning chances on Wednesday by taking advantage of an exclusive matched bonus. Make a minimum deposit of at least £10 and the bonus is yours, up to a maximum of £100. Check back for the latest offers every Wednesday, and be aware that wagering will most definitely apply.

Bonus spins Thursday – every Thursday at the Pots of Luck Online Casino there’s the chance to earn yourself twenty bonus spins on the NetEnt slot Spinata Grande. If your first deposit on a Thursday is for at least £10, then the bonus spins are all yours! You need to wager your winnings thirty times before you can cash them out, and you can only use a selection of NetEnt slots to meet those requirements.

These are three possible bonus deals you may find in action at any time at Pots of Luck. Keeping checking their promotions page for the latest, up-to-the-minute details.

VIP/Loyalty scheme

The Pots of Luck VIP Club – the Irish have a very lovely reputation for hospitality, and that is evident at the Pots of Luck Online Casino with the VIP scheme that’s available here. This is split over four levels and the more you play at this online casino, the further up the levels you progress. VIPs receive the services of a dedicated personal account manager, VIP welcome bonuses and VIP-only promotions and hospitality events.

Special features

We’ve mentioned the increasing number of gaming titles available at the Pots of Luck Online Casino. The gaming software here is provided by a rich list of providers, including NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Big Time Gaming and Lightning Box. With those first two at least, you get a very nice selection of some very hot slots games, including Foxin’ Wins Again and Manic Millions.

There are plenty of ways of getting help if you come unstuck at the Pots of Luck Online Casino. Perhaps the most useful is the live chat facility which is available at the site between 8am in the morning until midnight.

If you need a more leisurely response you are welcome to email the casino at support@potsofluck.com or you can even phone them at 0161 870 5948.

One bonus here that we like to see – you can use your mobile phone bill as a means of depositing into your account. This is done via a payment processor known as boku, and you can deposit between £10 and £30 on a daily basis.

Other betting options

Despite Ireland’s love of gambling, there are no sports betting, bingo or poker options here.

Conclusion

We’ve seen Nektan (Gibraltar) Ltd sites before, and they just seem to be getting better and better. The main criticism that’s been previously levelled at them has been the lack of table games, but recent additions seem to suggest that they are making genuine efforts to redress this.

However, they are not quite there yet, hence we are having to lop a star off from giving them the full five-star rating. We would like to see the number of table games increased even further, and a few more payment providers.

We’d still be happy to count Seamus among our casino buddies, and we hope that soon you will too!
