9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins Slot Review 2022
Microgaming partner, Gameburger Studios are breathing new life into one of their popular classics from 2020 in 9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins!
It’s not the first time Gameburger Studios has taken one of their titles and given it a little boost of excitement in the form of HyperSpins. 9 Masks of Fire and Playboy Fortunes were worthy titles to receive an upgrade, but for most players the HyperSpins mechanic is just an extra word in the title.
The theme for 9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins is identical to the original, even down to symbols. Other than the HyperSpins feature, it’s sad to see that Gameburger Studios hasn’t put on their creative pants and made the theme more appealing. The background and general design of the game is a little dull in our opinion, but that doesn’t necessarily mean gameplay will be.
Will 9 Pots of Gold be a welcome addition to the HyperSpins family? Let’s play on and find out!

9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins Base Game and Features
9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. In order to form a win, you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbols from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The base game in 9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins has not one but two exciting features available, but for those in the UK you will not have access to the HyperSpins feature, relying solely on the Pot Symbols to bring some excitement to the table.

At the bottom of each of the 5 reels is a bar with a unique amount, this is known as the HyperSpins feature.
If you’re not happy with the symbol layout on the reels or maybe you’re 1 Scatter away from Free Spins, you will be able to Respin each reel for a set price. You can only Respin one reel at a time and Respin costs vary with each bet.
For those of you in the UK, you will not benefit from the HyperSpins feature.
Respins are only available in the Base Game.
The RTP when purchasing HyperSpins increases slightly from 96.24% to 96.74%.
9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins: Free Spins
Landing 3 Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4, triggers the Free Spins round. Once active, you will be greeted with a Free Spins Wheel. This will determine your Free Spins and starting Multiplier.
Each Wedge on the Free Spins Wheel has a number of Free Spins and Multipliers. Spin the wheel to decide your fate!
Between 10 and 30 Free Spins can be awarded with a starting Multiplier of either x2 or x3.
The Free Spins round can be retriggered by landing Scatters, which will award the same amount of Free Spins from the initial trigger.
9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins: Our Verdict
9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins combines a couple of recognisable features which can make for an exciting exprience, but it can also feel rather plain
The HyperSpins feature is a really nice touch if you have access to it, otherwise its just an extra word in a title with no meaning behind it. For those who do have access, you need to decide if Re-spinning the reels over and over again for that third Scatter is going to be worth the cost in the long run.
Statistically, 9 Pots of Gold HyperSpins is looking pretty good in terms of RTP, with an above average of 96.24%. Unfortunately, all high hopes are suddenly dashed when you realise the maximum win capacity sits at a really poor 2,000x.
Despite our reservations, the 9 Pots of Gold series of games has proved popular with players, so there’s obviously something that they’re doing right.
Overall, 9 Pots of Gold Hyperspins ticks a box if you’re looking for a classic Irish theme, and transparent gameplay with good potential.
