- but why not try one of these?
Everybody likes an oriental-themed online slot and while that statement may not be strictly true there are plenty such games about. Lucky 88 is one more to add to that list and it revolves around the auspicious number 88 – something that symbolises luck and fortune in Chinese culture. This is an Aristocrat Leisure game so read on for more information.
Lucky 88 is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty five paylines; the background is an appropriately oriental red and orange explosion behind gold-framed reels.
There are five high value symbols comprising a golden lion, a swan, a gold monument, a golden conical tower and a drum; lower values are the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
The moustachioed Chinese emperor is the wild symbol and if he helps out with a win may multiply that amount by 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 18x, 38x or 88x. The scatter symbol is a Chinese lantern which activates the main feature.
The Extra Choice facility here allows you to pay a little extra per spin and receive enhanced feature in the free spins and the option to play a dice game instead. It costs an extra five coins per spin.
Free Spins With Extra Choice
This is triggered by landing three or more of the Chinese lantern scatters anywhere in view. You will receive the a choice of the following:
- 25 free spins + wild multiplier of 5x or 18x
- 15 free spins + wild multiplier of 8x or 38x
- 8 free spins + wild multiplier of 18x or 88x
- 4 free spins + wild multiplier of 88x
Free Spins Without Extra Choice
- 20 free spins + wild multiplier of 5x or 18x
- 10 free spins + wild multiplier of 8x or 38x
- 3 free spins + wild multiplier of 18x or 88x
In both cases it’s possible to re-trigger more spins by landing more scatter symbols.
Extra Choice Dice Feature
You may opt for this dice-rolling game rather than the free spins and you will get the chance to roll eight dice three times. Each ‘8’ you land is held and when the rolls are over your prize is based on the number of 8s landed – eight 8s wins 10,888x your line stake. A central dice will then be rolled with the chance or triggering three more dice rolls.
Any win can be gambled by clicking the ‘Gamble’ button below the reels; this opens a screen offering players the choice to double of quadruple that win by correctly guessing the colour or suit of the next playing card drawn. You can guess correctly up to five times but any wrong answer will lose your winnings.
Lucky 88 is a pretty basic online slot but we do like the option to pay a bit extra for some shiny extra features; the dice rolling can be quite interesting if you opt for that option but there’s a disappointingly low RTP of 89.81%.
