NetEnt’s very own leprechaun Kelpie brings you to the end of Rainbow in Irish Pot Luck™. It’s not the first Irish-themed video slot, but it is the first Irish slot that offers NetEnt Jackpots.
When you know what leprechauns know, you understand why they’re always looking for the end of the rainbow. Join Kelpie in his search for the rainbow’s treasure. Maybe you’ll end up with your very own treasure.
NetEnt’s other leprechaun Finn got some serious competition with Kelpie. It’s hard to beat Finn, but I’m sure that the three pots of shiny gold on top of the reels do the job for those seeking the big fortune!

Who is Kelpie?
Kelpie is the name I gave to the Leprechaun when he was about to find his way to the NetEnt Casinos in 2020. Just like Finn, Kelpie is a supernatural being in Irish folklore. You’ll know them as Leprechauns.
Leprechauns are loved by the Irish, even though they can fool you. This little ginger bearded creature isn’t tall, but don’t underestimate them when it comes to their gold. The little fellow in his green suit now invites you to join him in his quest for gold in the Irish Pot Luck™ slot! If lucky, he might help you find your very own pot of gold!
What’s so Irish about Irish Pot Luck™?
It’s all in the name, they say and it’s true! But what makes this video slot so Irish? Is it Kelpie the leprechaun or is there more to it than that?
One thing is for sure! You can’t have a character more Irish than the leprechaun. So we look further than the main character, and we see a lot of luck. There are the shamrocks and horseshoes, both symbols for luck.
The Irish harp is the official symbol for Ireland. It’s not as popularly well-known around the world as the shamrock for being an Irish symbol, though. Today, the Irish harp is to be found on many national items such as official documents, passports, flags and on the Irish euro coins.
“Let the luck of the Irish be on your side while playing the Irish Pot Luck™ slot”
The game is covered in luck with all these lucky symbols and the cheerful Irish folk music can only make things better. I’m sure you’ll have a grand old time playing it!
Irish Pot Luck™ Jackpots
Finn’s Swirly Spin is amazing, but he doesn’t offer three NetEnt Jackpots like Kelpie does. The Irish Pot Luck™ slot is the first Irish slot that offers three jackpots.
The three jackpots available in the Irish Pot Luck™ slot aren’t local or pooled. The reason why they are neither of it is because they aren’t progressive. The three jackpots are fixed. However, the higher your bet, the higher the jackpot!
The three Irish Pot Luck™ jackpots look like this:
The Mini Jackpot offers a jackpot 20 times your bet
The Midi Jackpot offers a jackpot 100 times your bet
The Mega Jackpot offers a jackpot 5000 times your bet
The game is pretty standard with a 5×3 video slot layout with 20 fixed betlines. The RTP of 96.06% is pretty standard for a jackpot game as well while the volatility of Irish Pot Luck™ slot is low/medium. This means you don’t have to wait long for winning combinations while the wins are medium.
The betting options changed compared to the usual NetEnt slots. For a while already, we haven’t seen any bet levels available in newer NetEnt slots. You just had a minimum bet and a maximum bet and a certain number of options in between.
For your bet to change, you used the arrows next to your bet to lower or higher your bet. Now, one click is enough to see all betting options available which is more convenient to choose the perfect bet for you.
In total, Irish Pot Luck™ offers 44 bets starting from a minimum bet of 0.20 and ending with a maximum bet of 200.00.
Irish Pot Luck™ slot features
There’s quite a lot going on in the Irish Pot Luck™ slot. I do however believe that the Pot Luck feature and the Jackpot Bonus Wheel deserve a spot in the spotlights. There’s a Multiplier sign in the game that deserves some attention too though.
This means that I didn’t mention the Wilds yet and Free Spins. The reason why is that they are pretty standard. The Wild does what it has to do and can appear anywhere on the reels to substitute for all symbols except Scatters and Jackpot symbols.
The Free Spins feature awards 10 Free Spins and opens when three Scatters appears on the reels one, three, and five. During the Free Spins feature in the Irish Pot Luck™ slot, the Multiplier on the signpost can climb up as high as x15!
During the main game and during Free Spins, there’s a Multiplier Sign available. This sign can be found at the right bottom and turns around to randomly end up at a Multiplier. This Multiplier reveals itself before the reels stop to multiply upcoming wins.
- In the main game, potential Multipliers are x1, x2, x3, or x5.
- During Free Spins, potential Multipliers are x2, x4, x7, or x15
Pot Luck feature
Every spin again, NetEnt’s cheerful leprechaun Kelpie can toss special symbols onto the reels. From the pot of gold, he can randomly throw Wilds, Scatters, and Jackpot symbols on the reels.
- Wild symbols can land anywhere on the reels to substitute for any other symbol (except Scatters and Jackpot symbols)
- Kelpie is also able to throw one or more Scatters on the reels. 3 Scatters will activate Free Spins
- The same goes for the Jackpot symbols. When thrown on the reels 1, 3 or 5, they activate the Jackpot Wheels feature.
How to win one of the Irish Pot Luck™ jackpots?
I already explained the three Irish Pot Luck™ Jackpots earlier, but how do you hit a jackpot in this Irish slot? The answer is simple as you need the Jackpot Bonus Wheel for that.
The Jackpot Bonus Wheel has a lot in common with the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot Wheel. They both offer a wheel with 3 tiers. Each of them is divided into different spaces. Each space awards another type of win:
Thanks to the arrow you reach the next tier for bigger wins or a jackpot
Awards a win of 2.5 or 10 times your bet
-Mini Jackpot (20 times your bet)
You win the Mini jackpot, Mini Jackpot x2 or Mini Jackpot x3.
– Midi Jackpot (100 times your bet)
You win the Midi Jackpot or the Midi Jackpot x2
– Mega Jackpot (5000 times your bet)
