This is an attractive Asian-themed slot built under the format of 5 x 3 reels and it is provided with 30 pay lines. In it, they have been included 11 regular symbols, a wild symbol and a scatter symbol depicted with the image of a red “Lucky Box,” and precisely this is the most cherished symbol of all the game as it is responsible for triggering the bonus round, which is a supremely interesting feature because of the wide variety of games it composed of and the high winning potential offered by some of them.
So, to gain access to this bonus round, one of five different features is randomly activated depending on the content of the 3 or more Lucky Boxes.
In the bonus round, sometimes we will win instant cash prizes, sometimes free spins, scatters that become the two highest paid symbols of the game combinable each other and with regular symbols with that specific icons, and within my favorite, they are a feature that converts other many symbols into wilds and a wheel of fortune with the ability to grant awards up to 6000x your total bet for each of its three spins.
According to my appraisal, access to the bonus round happens with some frequency, and that’s good because in this round is where it is concentrated the real winning potential, making this the main attraction of this video slot; in any case, I do not remember having suffered real bad streaks during the base game, so at this point, I think it is already justified the reason why this is a game so visited despite it has passed very little time from the moment it was released.
Personally, my first session with this slot passed between ups and downs, until a moment in which I got access to several bonus rounds in a relatively short period, being my best wins a prize of 65x and 133x my total bet, the latter win achieved through the feature “Firecracker Wilds,” i.e. that feature which makes several symbols wilds just when Lucky Boxes are opened; at that time, I obtained eight wilds on 3 central reels and one more on the bottom of the reel 5, and my win was interesting also because in that spin I already had a lion symbol located in the center of the reel 1.
I think “Great 88” turned out to be a very interesting and fun video slot after all; so if you like games manufactured by Betsoft, then you should take the time to check this one.
