This Microgaming game focuses more on the Chinese Zodiac rather than the Modern Zodiac as you spin to find some high paying wins.
In fact we would even say that the Lucky Zodiac slot machine isn’t really about the signs of the Chinese Zodiac either.
Instead of focusing on the actual symbols like Snake, Dragon, Rabbit, Monkey, Pig etc… Microgaming have been extremely lazy and these five reels are full of the low paying and familiar A – 10 symbols, as well as Chinese lanterns, fans, firecracker scatters, the slots logo as wild and… vases?
Poor show Microgaming, poor show. This could have been a graphically wonderfully and more entertaining video slot with all the animals as the symbols. Instead only one Zodiac symbol appears: the sheep – which, we guess, is because this casino slot came out in 2015, the year of the sheep.
Ok rant over.
At the end of the day, the game play is actually quite entertaining, and the free spins bonus game can pack a thrilling punch.
In the base game and free spins, the top symbols you’ll be on the look out for are the Lucky Zodiac slot logo wilds, which substitute for all symbols except scatters, plus the firecracker scatter symbols.
Find five wilds on a winning payline and you’ll get 150x your bet, find five scatters across the reels and you’ll win a whopping 200x your bet.
Not something that happens regularly but even the three and four of a kind wins are pretty decent.
And all of these factors come in to play even more so in the Lucky Zodiac free spins round, where you’ll get random multipliers of up to 7x on each spin, not to mention all those extra wilds.
We managed to trigger the free spins every 50 – 80 spins in the base game. Which is actually pretty decent given the fact that these can be some very high paying free spins.
Find three or more scatters on the reels, and you’ll get 12 free spins.
Not many you might think, but on each spin a random multiplier will show at the top of the reels, which can go up to 7x, and produce some impressive wins.
Find five of a kind wins and you are looking at over 200x your bet. That doesn’t include the wilds and scatters which have a very decent payout.
What gives an extra helping hand is that the sheep symbol will now also act as an additional wild symbol.
That’s two wild symbols during the free spins, for multiple winning combinations on 20 paylines.
Oh, and before we forget, find three or more scatters during the free spins, and you’ll re-trigger another 12 spins.
Will the year of the sheep be your lucky year?
Ok, so we slated the fact that this software, much like they do in quite a few other Microgaming games, have been lazy in terms of styling and graphics.
This does drops a few points off our Lucky Zodiac slot review. However the game play, especially the free spins, more than makes up for the lack of graphic diversity.
With a return to player rate of 96% – 97%, and a maximum win of up to 140,000 coins, this medium variance slot provides some thrilling spins.
Unfortunately the Lucky Zodiac mobile slot does not exist, which means that your are going to have to enjoy this slot game online only.
But with a betting range of 0.20 to 100 in cash, it should all allows beginners and experts alike to spin some uncomplicated five reels on their desktop.
There are no ‘unique’ features to speak of, just a frequent free spin bonus feature that keeps on giving with wins from around 40x upwards of 300x your bet.
This is a fun and entertaining video slot for when you need a few lucky spins.Play Now at Royal Panda »
