LotsaLoot Progressive Slot Review

Lots a Loot is an old school classic slot from Microgaming, spiced with a progressive jackpot. The game is filled with traditional Irish lucky symbols. It doesn’t really have any fancy bells or whistles, but the jackpot can pay out in the tens of thousands pounds range. Bet the maximum at £2.50 and shoot for the jackpot by getting five LotsaLoot symbols on the 25th payline. It’s a relatively expensive game to play and there are no free spins or special features, so it’s more suitable for high rollers.

How to Play

LotsaLoot is a retro classic slot with 3 rows and 5 reels, but it does have a progressive jackpot. In fact, LotsaLoot is all about the jackpot, and you need to play MaxBet with all 25 lines to be eligible and pull up 5 wilds according to the 25th payline to win big. Since the coin size is fixed, that means £2.50 per spin at the pre-set coin size of £0.25.

Of course, if you are willing to give up the chance of winning the jackpot, or just to start off with a smaller bet size to stretch your budget a little longer while wait for Lady Luck to strike you can bet on fewer lines, even on only one. You can adjust the lines, by pressing on “Select Lines”.

If you want to use AutoPlay to spin continually, first enter Expert mode and click on AutoPlay. You can set the amount of spins and any conditions you want to stop the automatic action. The slot runs on some mobile devices, smartphones and tablets – but it is coded in Flash and therefore may not play on all devices.

Important symbols in Lotsaloot

The LotsaLoot symbol is the Wild, substituting for all other symbols to make combinations easier. It is also the most valuable symbol in its own right, paying up to 10,000x bet on any payline, including payline 25, which is the jackpot winner if you played at the MaxBet level.

The other symbols, ranked from most to least valuable, are:

  • Pot of Gold
  • Lucky 7
  • BAR
  • Four leaf clover
  • Playing card values from A to 10

Jackpots

The LotsaLoot progressive jackpot is won by getting 5 LotsaLoot symbols on Payline 25 when you are playing at MaxBet , This is a relatively old slot, and not the most popular progressive, so it does not typically have anything near the level of jackpot payout of a MegaMoolah, for example. But wins in low 5 digits are not uncommon, and the highest jackpot ever was a cool $83,671. This jackpot is won frequently, every week or so. Most punters would consider a £20,000 win a pretty good day’s haul!

 

Special Features and Bonuses

Except for the LotsaLoot wild symbol, there are not any special bonus features or even free spins. With a low Return to Player of 90.09%, it’s all about going for the jackpot. Best, therefore, to always keep at MaxBet and hope that this is your lucky day.

Graphics and Sounds

LotsaLoot has a colorful rainbow theme, evidently to suggest the (jack)pot of gold that awaits you at the end of the rainbow. The symbols are attractive but not especially creative. The screen is a bit busy, Everything seems to run as it should but the sounds are predictable and nothing to write home about. Indeed, you will probably be reaching for the mute button (in the upper right corner) after a while.

Conclusion

Lots a Loot is all about the possibility of winning big. With a Return to Player (RTP) hovering around 90%, our advice would be to play the game only if you are ready to play MaxBet. You can play on fewer lines to stretch your budget out until you feel the lucky streak hits, but you never want to do it for too long, because some of the biggest jackpots are won after just a few spins. If you have the dough and want to take a chance at being the lucky punter who wins a very decent jackpot, then this old school slot is worth taking for a spin.
