Pots O’Luck expanding scratch card from Betfair is an innovative twist on the classic game. The majority of scratch cards follow the tried and tested formula of a nine panelled grid. However, Betfair has launched an Irish themed card called ‘Pots O’Luck’ which shakes up the traditional gameplay.

So how is this game different? The change is small but significant; the card still contains a standard nine-panelled grid. However, if you reveal winning symbols on the first grid, the scratch card expands, giving you another seven panels to remove. If you win on those, the card grows again! And you get another chance to win! The wins build and multiply prize money won. It’s a neat concept and makes the card more engaging.

The graphics and sound on Pots O’Luck are themed around a cheeky Irish leprechaun. A nod to famous slot machines like ‘Leprechauns Luck’ and ‘Luck O’ The Irish’ which have proved popular with punters online. The reveal symbols on this card look like the tourist shop at Dublin Airport. It’s all shamrocks, Guinness and Leprechauns – to be sure, to be sure. I’m starting to think the Irish Government should charge a license fee for all this ‘Irishness’ used by online casinos.

Let’s take a closer look at the jackpots and stakes available on this game. First, how much does it cost to play? Here’s the good news, you can play Pots O’Luck for just 1p! That’s right, one pence. I think that’s a great move on the part of Betfair. Lots of people like me love playing but don’t want to risk big money. You can increase the stake level if you fancy gambling more. However, the maximum stake is only 4p! The big jackpot is 20,000x your stake – so you could win £400.

Overall, I loved the card, concept and risk level. Some players will be turned off by the low jackpot: Notwithstanding, lots of us like playing at this level. If you want, Betfair has many cards you can play for larger stakes and prizes. For instance, you can try ‘The Voice‘ scratch card at Betfair and the big jackpot game ‘250k Scratch’.
