Lucky Zodiac Slots - Microgaming
ABOUT LUCKY ZODIAC SLOTS
Launched in Microgaming casinos in September 2015, Lucky Zodiac is a five reel, twenty line video slot themed on the Chinese astrology that celebrates the world's most populous country. Offering a top payout of 140,000 credits and highly rewarding bonus round, the game does have potential to award big wins, even if it falls into the medium variance slot category.
Rather than using the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac as an inspiration, the game developers turned to other popular items representing the Asian culture, meaning that symbols like red lanterns, lotus flowers, blue vases and hand fans are used to form winning combinations. High cards Ace through Ten are present as well, with Game Logo, Ram and Firecracker representing the special icons.
HOW TO PLAY LUCKY ZODIAC
Pays button located in the top right hand corner triggers a three-page Paytable, which you should definitely study closely before playing for the first time. Meanwhile, clicking on the Bet button opens a drop-up menu, where you get to select coin size ($0.01-$0.50), coins (1-10) and lines (1/20), as well as activate Max Bet.
Press Win button to view Top 5 and Recent wins, and this is where you can also choose to view wins in coins & credits. As that is usually the case, Game Logo acts as a substitute for remaining symbols, apart from Firecracker Scatter. The good news is that Ram icon becomes an additional Wild during the Free Spins round.
Lucky Zodiac does not contain too many special perks and benefits, but a high-value bonus rounds, two Wild icons and Scatter payouts should prove enough to land a nice win every now and again, as witnessed by the advertised 140,000 maximum coin jackpot.
The main bonus round is activated each time three or more Firecracker Scatters are found anywhere on the game screen. When that happens, players will get 12 free spins, where multiplier of up to x7 will be applied to all wins, with both Game Logo and Ram acting as Wilds for the duration of the feature.
Exploding Firecracker symbol is Scatter and it goes without saying that this particular icon awards entry into the main bonus round. The good news is that you will also be in for instant credit payout of 2x, 4x, 20x and 200x total bet when two, three, four and five of these respectively occur in any position.
If you are into progressive jackpot games you might have to look for elsewhere considering that there are no progressives linked to Lucky Zodiac, but you are unlikely to be disappointed by the 140,000-credit maximum payout. When it comes to the maximum amount one can win per single line, it stands at 30,000 coins, with said prize awarded each time five Game Logo Wilds are found on an active payline at a ten-coin bet per line.
