Fishin' Christmas Pots of Gold Review
There's no denying just how popular Irish and fishing slots are, which is why Gameburger Studios had the bright idea to fuse the two in Fishin' Bigger Pots of Gold. Trying to push this concept further, the slot developer then decided to throw Christmas into the mix in Fishin' Christmas Pots of Gold.
Everyone's favourite leprechaun returns but dressed as Santa this time! Charming Ireland has also been transformed into a winter wonderland to deliver a Christmas experience. Thankfully, the gameplay is just as exciting as before with free spins, multipliers and fixed jackpots leading to big wins.
It's clear that this is not just a cheap cash grab from Gameburger Studios. When the slot opens up, you'll be greeted with visuals of the bottom of the lake with fish swimming around boxes of presents and Christmas lights. At the top of the screen, there is a house lit up and decored for Christmas.
All the symbols on the reels relate back to the theme with fishes having little Christmas accents such as hats or candy canes. It's so ridiculous but hilarious to see! There are other Christmas symbols such as Santa's boots, bells and boxes of Christmas ornaments.
Throughout the slot, there is a unique 'Jingle Bells' slot that is sung during spins. It's paired with an Irish twist to add a little flavour to it. Thankfully, the voices do not sing all the time and there are moments of just the tune playing in the distance. Depending on what mood you are in, this can get very annoying.
Do not go into this slot expecting something innovative. Instead, the gameplay is simple with free spins, fixed jackpots and the collect mechanic. However, this does not make the slot boring.
With the free spins round, you can collect symbols to build up the progressive trail leading to more spins and multipliers that can go up to x10. There is also the chance to gain one of the four fixed jackpots leading to extra wins.
It's clear that Gameburger Studios wanted to go even bigger with this slot! Any developer could have just copied the original slot and added a Christmas theme but not Gameburger!
Firstly, there is no longer just a high volatility level in this slot. Instead, players will find medium volatility leading to a mixture of both low and high with varying frequencies.
Finally, the maximum win has gone from 5,000x the stake to over 15,000x the stake! This is a massive jump giving players, even more, to look forward to. Of course, 5,000x the stake can be won with the fixed jackpot, but the multipliers in free spins are where the wins really come to life.
It's not often that we are blown away by Christmas slots, but we were thoroughly impressed with this one. Fishin' Christmas Pots of Gold is a delight to play with thrilling gameplay paired with some dazzling visuals.
The only aspect that may get a little too overwhelming is the overly cheerful music but this can be muted (thankfully). For a Christmas-fishing slot, there's no better game than Fishin' Christmas Pots of Gold.
