You might be instantly put off playing Foxium’s Foxpot slot if you simply glance at the game info. A single payline slot with one reel? Isn’t this regressing back to the kind of slots you’d find on Vegas casino floors in the 1970s? But that is kind of the point and, as we’ve seen in recent releases, there is as much appetite for innovative and revolutionary slots like Aeterna as there is for classic and retro slots.
Foxpot, released on the Microgaming platform, includes a central Fox Wheel that is the key to this game’s bonuses and top payouts, which include three separate jackpots that can see you win up to x10,000 your stake. The top jackpot? Why, that’s the Foxpot of course.
Pros & Cons

- The more Bonus Scatters you land, the more you can win.
- Nice twist on retro slots play.
- Only one reel and one payline.
- Need to land three Bonus Scatters to unlock all levels of the Fox Wheel.
- Simple game play.
How to Play
Foxpot is extremely simple to play, which will appeal more to some online slots players than others. Select your bet level by using the bet toggle to the right of the spin button, then press the spin button to spin the single reel of three symbols when you are happy with your bet. The pay table to the right of the game board displays the game payouts, which increase and decrease when you increase or decrease your bet accordingly.
You trigger the Fox Wheel bonus game when you land 1-3 Bonus Scatters, which is similar in type to the bonus wheel on the Monopoly Big Spin slot from SG Digital. Unlike that game, though, Foxpot uses the bonus wheel element as a dedicated bonus feature, while you can also score base game wins by landing three of a kind. The fourth symbol on the reel is an independent Multiplier Reel, which features a Win Multiplier which can multiply your wins x2 or x3.
The game symbols on Foxpot have a deliberate air of familiarity about them, which we have seen countless times before on slots like Joker Reelz and Immortal Fruits. As Foxpot is an ode to classic slots play it is no surprise to see such classic slot symbols appear on the single reel. Cherries, Plums, Lemons, Watermelons and various 7s are the game symbols, with the Triple 7s paying x25 your bet for landing three on the single payline. They are trumped by the Fox Wild symbol, however, which awards x40 your bet when you land three on the payline. The Bonus Scatters trigger the game’s dedicated Fox Wheel bonus feature.
The Foxpot slot features one dedicated bonus game – the Fox Wheel – that can award one of three jackpots, the Mini, Midi and Foxpot. The Multiplier Reel and Nudge feature also boost this game’s bonus potential.
