Lucky 88 Video Slot
Fans of the slots, particularly games with an Oriental theme, may need no introduction to the number eight as something of a lucky charm. Aristocrat is certainly comfortable with such a theme as many of their leading games, such as 5 Dragons and Choy Sun Doa, have brought it to the reels almost to perfection. This game joins them as one of the most played titles and you can find out for yourself whether the number eight is as lucky as some claim it to be!
Firstly, you can breathe a sigh of relief if you were expecting eight win lines as this is one area of the game that the number has no influence over. Instead, there’s the far more interesting 25 win line combination that allows for the wins to keep on piling up without breaking the bank on spin bets. One thing to bear in mind when it comes to bets is the Extra Choice stake. It does increase your total bet somewhat but is well worth it given the impact that it has on the features.
Look Out for the Emperor
Lucky 88’s wild card is particularly useful. Depicted by the emperor, it will not only fill in for other standard prize winning symbols but will also award a prize of its own. Land five in a line and you’ll get your hands on one of the game’s jackpots, a stunningly appropriate 888 coins.
Paper Lanterns Mean Prizes
The iconic paper lantern symbol earned its reputation by being particularly useful on Aristocrat slots. In this particular case, three or more of them in view will lead to the bonus round and this is where the Extra Choice comes into play. You can opt for free spins or try your luck on the Roll Your Lucky Dice Bonus. There’s even a choice when it comes to the free spins alone, as you may opt for four free spins with an 88 times multiplier, 25 spins with a five times multiplier or one of the other options in between.
If you prefer to roll the dice, the game is essentially all about winning as much cash as possible with three rolls. The number eight is of course particularly significant once again as it will build up your prize and award further rolls at the same time.
We always value choice and Lucky 88 certainly has that, even if you have to bump up your stake a little for the privilege! We generally prefer the free spins round but there aren’t all that many opportunities to roll the dice on the slots so that’s an equally valid option for players – try it yourself and see which you like best!
