"Lucky88" is a simple appearance slot with Asian theme belonging to the company "Aristocrat". As it’s known, the 8 is the lucky number in China and in this game this number appears everywhere, in rates of paytable, in multipliers and incredibly after extinguishing all my 1,000 credits playing for fun, my final balance was $ 0.88, that makes you think, hehe.
The layout of this game is 5 x 3 reels, 25 paylines and it has sufficient bet levels to choose from and additionally you have the option to pay additional 5 coins for extra choices when choosing your feature for free spins round. "Lucky88" is mainly characterized by being a slot that has a quite poor paytablewhose payments are intended to be alleviated somewhat by including a wild symbol that gives random and quirky multipliers when it gets involved in the formation of some combination; during the base this wild game can multiply your winnings by x2, x3, x5, x8, x18, x38 or x88 when it is part of some combination, and during the free spins each feature is strictly linked to the activity of the wild symbol.
When you manage to obtain 3 scatters identified with the image of red lantern, then the feature is triggered and you can choose between 20, 10 or 3 spins where wild symbol grants the multipliers x5 or x18, x8 or x38 or x18 or x88 respectively, but if you paid the extra bet, the numbers of turns are increased to 25, 15 and 8 and multipliers remain equal, and they are added the options 4 free games with wild x88 and also the option “dice feature” where you roll the dice 3 times and the most the number of 8's you get greater it is your prize.
To be frank, I do not like much these slots with such high variance, the risk is so high and opportunities are usually few, also triggering the feature of this game is complicated, at least it happened to me, not at first, but when I coincidentally started to increase my bet, maybe it's coincidence or not but it passed. I think I’m going to leave this slot for the more adventurous players, especially those who have deep faith to number 8.
