- Simplistic and easy casino layout
- Worked well for me on mobile
- Withdrawal fees on a slow withdrawal process
Pots of Luck Casino (UK) is an instant-play site with an Irish theme. Led by Seamus the Leprechaun, you can rest assured that the mood here is always fun.
Being a Nektan site, Pots of Luck and its sister sites have plenty of games on offer, including Irish games, so you can have a jolly good time as you play the best casino games on offer.
Since launching in 2016, Pots of Luck has been providing players with top-notch gaming entertainment via mobile or desktop.
Pots of Luck is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Gibraltar Government.
You can sign up safe in the knowledge that Pots of Luck Casino undergoes regular rigorous tests for safety and security. Additionally, all this operator's games undergo regular audits for fairness.
Pots of Luck wants to make sure that their players feel right at home, with superb promotions, professional customer support and a welcome package, which excels all expectations.
After a bumpy start, this site eventually won me over with its friendly and honest approach to bonuses and games alike.
I found that the basic design of Pots of Luck certainly works in its favour. It was very easy to navigate around and find all the games I wanted to play. The choices are a lot more stripped-down than some of the bigger casinos, but it never felt basic in any way. I really liked the ‘Irish Games’ and ‘Seamus’ Picks’ categories which fit in nicely with the theme of the site.
It was a very simple 1-page signup form here. There wasn’t even a need for me to create a username or give my gender, just the basics of name, address, email and phone number. This felt a lot less intrusive than most casinos. There was a tick box to agree to the terms of the casino but this selected all the marketing options too. It was easy to uncheck these. I clicked on ‘Play Now’ and got a pop-up with a deposit button encouraging me to add some funds.

Immediately after my deposit, there was a pop-up box stating that I had received a £40 bonus and 100 Bonus Games on Starburst. Clicking on the ‘Play Now’ button just dismissed the box when I thought it would take me to play Starburst. The £40 cash and £40 bonus balances showed up instantly so no complaints there. It all seemed pretty straight forward.
The green bar at the top of the screen showed me my ‘Bonus to Cash’ progress. It was nice to have this so obvious and not hidden away in a sub-menu; it felt very honest. The bar also displayed my ‘100 Free Rounds’. Clicking on that gave me a dropdown of eligible games which just showed Starburst as my welcome offer bonus spins game. I went straight for that and played through my bonus spins. I won £9.49 on Starburst which was added to my bonus cash balance. Later on, I forfeited the bonus as I wasn’t going to meet the 30x wagering requirements on my winnings before I could withdraw them.
I had the option to claim the next part of the welcome bonus or a different offer by checking the bonus boxes when making my future deposits. I was impressed with the range of other offers available to me, such as the Daily Drops and a Game of the Week deposit deals. It all seems pretty clear and easy to claim.

Pots of Luck's game catalogue is the casino's most promising feature, and the site only hosts top-class games by some of the world’s leading software game providers, including the likes of NetEnt, Red Tiger, NYX, Big Time Gaming and IGT.
As a player, you are presented with hundreds of casino games, which are shoed into various categories. Categories include Player Favourites, Bingo, New Games, Seamus’ Picks, Daily Drops and Wins, Casino Games and Irish Games. There is a search bar function to look up games.
Popular games include Rainbow Riches, Monopoly Megaways, Tiki Fruits, Siberian Storm, Golden Leprechaun Megaways, Mustang Gold and DaVinci Diamonds.
Pots of Luck also has a vast selection of Daily Drops and Wins, including games such as Wolf Gold, Release the Kraken, Pirate Gold, Magic Journey, Mustang Gold and Chilli Heat. Daily Drops and Wins are relatively popular amongst players since there is a guaranteed jackpot drop daily.
Table game fans can also enjoy a range of Blackjack and Roulette variants, while bingo fans, can play75, 80 and 90-ball bingo games.
Despite forfeiting my bonus, I still got this message every time I loaded up a slot game - ‘Please be aware that your bonus funds may be used during this gaming session’. It became pretty annoying as there was no way to disable it.
It seemed appropriate to play Finn’s Golden Tavern at an Irish themed casino. With some £0.30 spins I hit a couple of nice £4+ wins. I had a few £0.40 spins on John Hunter and the Book of Tut but nothing came my way. Reel King Mega gave me enough to keep ticking over but no major wins to report there. Aloha Cluster Pays didn’t bring me any good fortune either. However, I certainly felt the luck of the Irish on Rainbow Jackpots where I landed £20.48 in wins with some £0.20 spins.
I was disappointed with the lack of any Live Casino games at Pots of Luck. There was a ‘Casino Games’ tab, but I found it just had 4 sad-looking video table games to choose from. However, I saw some smooth looking regular live bingo games going and purchased a few cards for 90 Jackpot, but my balls didn’t land this time.

Pots of Luck Casino was created with the latest HTML5 technology. This means that players can access this website, whichever device they have.
There are no mobile casino apps to download. You only need to input the address into your smartphone or tablet’s web browser to get started. You can access hundreds of games, all created for a smaller screen, so you won’t have to compromise on quality. You can sign up for an account, make a deposit, claim a range of promotions and much more.
Testing out the mobile version of the site on my Android handset, it was good to see that it was easy to navigate around the site. The top menu and banner are not as intrusive as they are on the desktop version. This made it easier to search through the games selection.
Games wise, I went for some £0.10 spins on Rainbow Riches to start with and just about broke even there. Next, I checked out Piggy Pirates, which gave me a decent run of small wins to keep me afloat from some £0.20 spins. I also had some £0.25 spins on Chilli Heat, but it failed to set my world on fire, and my funds were running low.
I had no issues loading any of the games and the site zipped along on both my 4G phone data and my home fibre wifi connection.

- Email: by sending a message on email@example.com
- Phone: By calling on 0161 870 5948
- Live Chat
Clicking on the lucky 4 leaf clover live chat tab opened up a chat box where I had to enter a few of my account details whilst waiting. My call was answered in under 5 seconds by one of the support team who then asked me for the same details which I found rather annoying. The support agent was efficient and managed to check over my account and let me know the status of my account in less than a minute. There was a handy option to have the chat transcript emailed to me as well.
The FAQ is comprehensive, but I struggled to find it at first. It’s buried in the ‘Support’ tab under my account settings. This pop-up listed the email and phone number and when I scrolled down, there was a lot of info about all aspects of the casino. I’m just not sure why they don’t make it easier to find.

While Pots of Luck uses the latest technology to run security and age verification checks, they would require you to send in relevant documentation to satisfy their legal requirements.
- Proof of ID (passport, driving license, ID card)
- Proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, official government letter)
- Proof of Payment Method
Under my account menu was a tab called ‘Upload Documents’. Clicking here gives details of which documents are accepted to validate my account and a place to upload them. 5 documents can be submitted at any one time, and it says that processing can take up to 3 days. It was interesting to see that they do allow some utility bills for proof but have a few suppliers listed which they can’t accept.
My withdrawal was approved without the need for any further verification. The ‘Support’ section states that they perform age checks when you sign up, but further ID may be requested in the future.
You can make deposits and request withdrawals via several safe and secure banking methods, including:
- Debit Cards
- Prepaid Vouchers
The minimum deposit and withdrawal amount are £10. All withdrawals will be checked prior to processing. Checks can take up to three working days.
I found it easy to make a deposit using the simple one-page form. Here I could choose from the various payment types, enter my card detail, the deposit amount and select the welcome offer bonus. There was also a box to enter a bonus code for other bonuses later on.
My Revolut card wasn’t accepted as it’s classed as a credit card, so I tried with my Visa Debit instead. On the first attempt, I got a spinning wheel on the screen and then got sent back to the deposit screen. I refreshed the page, but there was no joy there. I tried again and got the Verified by Visa box, clicked continue, and my £40 deposit and £40 bonus showed up. Not the smoothest process and I was concerned that I’d get charged twice.
To request a withdrawal, I just entered my desired amount and hit ‘Withdraw’ to get things started. The confusing thing was the little pop-up box here which said ‘Withdrawal successful. It will take 2-3 working days to credit into your account’. To me, this means that my withdrawal was instant, and I would be waiting on my bank to process the funds. When I asked about this on live chat, apparently it means that the request is a success and I still have to wait for it to be approved.
The support agent said ‘we advise up to 2-3 working days for withdrawals to process, and then a further 3-5 working days for funds to appear in your account’. This all seems pretty deceptive to me, plus there was no email confirmation of my withdrawal request.
This wasn’t the only annoyance I encountered. There’s a pretty steep £1.50 fee for withdrawals under £30, so my £10 withdrawal was actually going to give me £8.50. It’s a big minus point for me. I didn’t get any email confirmation of my withdrawal request but did get one to say it had been approved 45 hours after I made the request. The funds took just under 2 days to hit my bank account.
