Pots of Luck Casino in a nutshell
Pots of Luck Casino is one of the several sites making up the Nektan (Gibraltar) Ltd stable of online casinos. Nektan are – of course – based in Gibraltar, and the many sites (over twenty and counting) they help run do so via licences issued to them by the Gibraltar government and the UK Gambling Commission. Other online casino sites that Nektan help to manage include Cloud Casino, Kerching Casino and Sapphire Room Casino.
Pots of Luck Casino is an Irish-themed online casino with a ginger-bearded leprechaun as its mascot. The Irish are considered to be lucky of course – a ‘claim’ that goes back to the pan-handling days of the US when Irish-led gold-digging gangs seemed to be the ones that struck gold with the most frequency.
So, will it be ‘pots of luck’ at Pots of Luck Casino, or ‘piles of poop’ instead? Pour yourself a Guinness (if you’re legally allowed to) and keep on reading to find out …
What’s the look and feel of Pots of Luck Casino?
Usually Nektan sites have a site ‘skin’ that then leads to the Nektan white-label casino solution ‘painted’ with the logos, banners and colour scheme of the brand. That’s not the case here – this is just the Nektan solution ‘coloured’ with Pots of Luck Casino branding. As the ‘second skin’ policy of many sites doesn’t usually work, this is a welcomed choice.
If you’ve played at a Nektan site before, then you’ll be on familar ground. It’s very unfussy, and easy to use.
It’s all about the luck o’ the Irish at Pots of Luck, as you might have guessed from the name. Mascot Seamus is on hand to guide players to his favourite games and gives the site an upbeat, welcoming feeling
If you have an version to clover, lucky horseshoes or leprechauns, you might find this site a little too much.
What games are available at Pots of Luck Casino?
Sadly, Pots of Luck Casino falls foul of the common limitation of all Nektan-powered casinos – the lack of games beyond slots.
Online slots fans will be in heaven. With top providers such as NetEnt and NYX/Next Gen Gaming on board, there’s plenty of hot slots action to be had – check out top games such as Foxin’ Wins, Gorilla Go Wild and Guns N’ Roses.
If you don’t like slots … well, then you won’t like Pots of Luck Casino. Other than slots this online casino has just two versions of blackjack, one version of roulette and nine scratch cards.
No live casino here either.
Software comes from NetEnt, NYX/NextGen Gaming, Genesis Gaming and Netkan themselves.
No live help, and no live casino either.
The site works extremely well on mobile devices, as all Nektan-powered sites are specifically built to do.
Can I play at Pots of Luck Casino on mobile?
Pots of Luck has an adaptive website that delivers the same experience on mobile as it does on desktop. This means that players who use one version will automatically know how to use the other and enjoy the same features.
What promotions are available at Pots of Luck Casino?
Your lucky times begin at Pots of Luck Casino with a bonus that’s as welcome as a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow – in total, over your first three bonuses, there’s £350 that’s up for grabs.
Here is your Pots of Luck Casino bonus schedule:
1. On your first deposit, they will give you extra funds to play their exciting slots: Deposit £100, get a £100 bonus plus 100 free spins on ‘Starburst’ !
2. As a further welcome, they will match your second deposit 200% with up to £50 in playable bonus funds + 50 free spins
3. On the third deposit they will give you a 50% deposit bonus up to £200 in bonus funds + 25 free spins
Normally, such a massive bonus would come with staggeringly bad wagering expectations, but that simply is not the case here – to withdraw your free cash and any winnings you may make from it you need to wager just a standard amount. The wagering expectations on ALL bonuses are just thirty (30) times the total of your deposit and bonus. The only other provision is that you deposit at least £10 for each bonus.
You have a generous twenty-eight days in which to meet your wagering requirements, and you can only use slots in order to meet them – not blackjack or roulette.

What are the pros & cons of Pots of Luck Casino?
As websites go, Pots of Luck has a fairly standard one that offers easy navigation and access. We noted that there are no live casino games on offer and the games they do have are organised in an unusual way. Being able to sort by category would be a nice feature.
- NetEnt and NextGen Gaming slots
- Other regular promotions
- Beneficial VIP scheme
- 100 free spins on Starburst upon your first deposit
- No live help nor live casino
- Complete lack of casino table games
The final verdict
There’s one thing we’re immediately impressed with at Pots of Luck Casino – that generous welcome bonus that comes with decent wagering conditions. Okay, so you can only use slots, but with a bit of effort there’s the chance you’ll be able to turn that bonus money into real cash pretty swifty.
The main thing we’re not impressed with is the lack of casino games beyond slots. This is a common failing of Nektan-powered casinos, and is something the Gibraltar-based company needs to rectify. Live support and live casino options would be of benefit too.
Not a bad effort at all by Pots of Luck Casino, but there are still creases that require ironing out.
