Great 88 Slots - BetSoft
ABOUT GREAT 88 SLOTS
Welcome to the mystical lands of China, where many secrets and treasures await. Great 88 focuses on the number 8, which is believed to bring prosperity and success, and as such, is considered a very lucky number in Chinese culture. That said, a 5 reel, 30 payline slot with so many eights is bound to bring fortune to its players.
Great 88 is fantastically designed, and has some of the better graphics we have seen in a while. The soothing music in the background also feels fitting. Betsoft’s release splits the symbols it has into two tiers. Lower paying icons will include several traditional Chinese symbols, while the higher paying tier has the more defined icons, including a paint brush, a jade frog, a blue lion and a red dragon.
HOW TO PLAY
The game presents most information visibly, and even as a new player, you should not have any issues finding important details. You can adjust your coin value and bet level, make use of the Autoplay option, and turn music on and off easily. Some things, however, such as the Turboplay option, are hidden in a menu screen.
While other slots might downplay their Wilds, Great 88 does not have that issue. Wilds are powerful enough in that they bring the largest win of the game if you get five of them in a single payline, but if you draw Wilds from lucky boxes, they can also explode and spread onto the reel around them.
The large draw of Betsoft’s release is in the Lucky Boxes, which act as the Scatter in this game. A myriad of bonuses come from these Lucky Boxes, but they do not come easily.
Free spins come hidden away behind the Lucky Boxes. Opening three or more crates that reveal jade coins inside will award the player a bonus round. How many spins you will get depends on how many jade coins were found inside the Lucky Boxes when they were opened.
Drawn as a red box, apart from creating Firecracker Wilds and Free Spins, Scatters also bring several other bonuses.
Within the crates you can find high paying symbols, such as the red dragon and blue lion. These icons will combine with others to increase your win – provided you had enough of the same symbols to create one to begin with.
Bronze coins increase the size of your win. Depending on how many bronze coins you get from Scatters, you can increase your win from x3 up to x15.
Finally, Lucky Boxes can contain golden dumplings, which serve to award spins on the Bonus Wheel. There, you can win free spins and multipliers, or access to the Mega Win Wheel.
The jackpot in Great 88 comes from the Mega Win Wheel.
Mega Win Wheel has three different bonuses to win. You can get a Mini Mega Win that gives you x100 your stake, a Big Mega Win that earns you x750 your wager. And the largest win in the game is the Giant Mega Win, that gives you x6000 your total stake!
Playing at the highest wager, that will earn you $900,000 in a single reel spin, which is a life changing amount if you can score it.
