Jacques Pot - Gourmet Slot Slots is a quirky little food game that looks pretty great and has a weird sense of European charm you don’t see too often in the slot realm. Combining stellar and designy visuals with nice colors and a great use of a limited art budget, it looks as well as it plays, and pays you for your trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that they had added a few more foods to the mix. We still had fun though and there is a lot on offer, however, so we don’t fault them hard for that. If you like food and money, skip this review and give it a go now. You won’t be disappointed.
The premise of Jacques Pot - Gourmet Slot Slots is fancy food. It’s plastered all over the slot, though included in that eclectic mix is oddly things like milk and cheese and rice. There actually aren’t any gourmet items in the whole of the game, relying instead on ingredients and an old man’s quirky little grim to tie it all together.
Graphics in Jacques Pot - Gourmet Slot Slots are really great. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. You can tell it was done by someone with limited experience on a small budget, but it comes together perfectly, and makes wonderful use of what would otherwise by a limited flash art style. There isn’t a pixel out of place here, which makes for a tasty experience the longer you play.
Gameplay in Jacques Pot - Gourmet Slot Slots is standard, but in a good way. At 5 reels and 20 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a penny to $1, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at a low level, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review. The free spin feature lets you win more than you bargained for, and you can get up to a 200x multiplier while doing them!

* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
Jacques Pot - Gourmet Slot Slots is a cartoony french looking game that plays like it was made for everyone in the world. It does well on a limited budget, is very friendly and inviting with its art style and betting amounts, and has decent payouts despite the market they have clearly tried to pigeon hole themselves in. We can’t think of anyone that would dislike this game. It’s all well done. It’s not fancy, but has a lot of heart, and pays out to play it. What more can you ask for? Lunch we suppose, but they seem to have thought of that too.
