Developed by Aristocrat Technologies, Lucky 88 is a slot that’s centered on the Chinese belief that luck and good fortune comes from the number 88. To reflect this message, the music, symbols and theme of the game all emulate an oriental style, giving it a wonderful twist that many gamers will enjoy. Add to this with free games, scatters, wilds and multipliers, and you’ll feel as though some of this Chinese luck is rubbing off on you in no time. This Aristocrat game is a 25-payline slot with 5 reels, and you’ll find many of the symbols represent the Chinese culture. And all of this is available on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. Read our full review below.
The symbols you’ll find on your reels include Chinese lamps, a pagoda, a Chinese drum, cranes and golden lions. You’ll also find the standard card symbols on your reels--9, 10, J, Q, K and A. A Chinese man acts as the wild icon and can replace all of the other symbols except for the scatter to help you create more winning combinations, thanks to forethought from Aristocrat.
Three of more of the red lanterns (the scatter) will trigger the bonus game, and this can be a game of dice or free spins, the option is up to you. Up to 25 free spins are available in one go but the decision of what you go for is up to you, and you need to think strategically to make the most out of what’s on offer. Options presented to you include four free games with an 88x multiplier, eight free games with an 18x or 88x multiplier, 18 free games with an 8x or 38x multiplier or 25 free games with a 5x or 18x multiplier. The multipliers only come into play when a wild is used to substitute one of the other symbols.
There’s also an extra choice feature available in Lucky 88, which is great if you feel as though luck is on your side. This allows you to bet on all the active paylines plus an additional five credits. The extra choice feature is also how you trigger the scatter bonus feature. In this, three dice games are awarded and if one or more eights are rolled, and these are held while the remaining dice are rolled again. This will continue until there are no more eights or you roll all of them. The prize awarded will depend on the number of eights you rolled. At the end of each of the dice games, the middle die is rolled again. If you roll "3 More Games,: the feature will begin again.
Gamers can choose how many lines they want in play (from 1 to 25) and the bet amount per line (from $0.01 to $2.50). This creates minimum bets of $0.01 and maximums of $62.50, suiting low- to mid-rollers.
There’s also a gamble feature available which allows you to double or quadruple your money by correctly guessing the color or suit of a card.
