Kiss your lucky charms, wear your lucky socks and do your lucky dance. Whatever your lucky ritual is, you'll need all the luck you can get as you spin the 5 reels of this charming little slot machine by Euro Games Technology which is available to play free and for real cash also. There are 20 paylines upon which you can find the pot of gold jackpot worth 80,000 smackers. There is also a wild symbol, a scattering symbol and a bonus four-leaf clover that will transform other game symbols into wild icons.
Luck is the name of the game and this slot machine drives that message home with its magical luck o'the Irish theme. This makes for a bright green aesthetic and some novelty style sound effects to keep the atmosphere bright and cheerful. Plus, the reels include some symbols which are indicative of the enchanted fairy tale forest such as toadstools, ladybird beetles, a leprechaun and a beautiful fairy character, all of which will perform jolly little jigs of animation whenever they appear in a winning sequence.
This slot machine is part of Euro Games Technology's “Touch” range, which means that it is specially designed to be played on mobile phones, smartwatches and tablets. Therefore, in order to set your bets, you will have to tap the cog icon in the top left hand corner of the screen to access the settings menu. Here you will discover that the slot's 20 paylines are permanently fixed and that the only available wagers are 20, 40, 100, 200 and 400 credits.
This does mean that conservative bettors won't be able to play a super safe strategy. But then again, you have to make your own luck if you want to win the big bucks. So, with a maximum bet of 400 credits, you can expect to win as much as 2,000 in return just for lining up five of the slot's least valuable symbols – the A and K icons. Toadstools and ladybirds will return up to 3,000 while the fairy offers 4,000 and the leprechaun will pay 8,000.
You need a little bit of luck with any slot machine that you play and fortunately, spinners will come across a number of icons on the reels of this game that might help their luck move in the right direction. These lucky charms are an upside down horse shoe, a four leaf clover and a golden coin embossed with the lucky number 7. Not a black cat or broken mirror in sight!
Ok, so each of these icons won't actually improve your luck, per se. But they will help your wins move along with their special gameplay characteristics. For example, the lucky horse shoe symbol is a wild icon that will complete winning combinations by substituting for all ordinary icons. Plus, this symbol will pay out a seriously good line bet multiplier of 1,000x when five appear on one of the game's 20 paylines. That will turn a maximum stake of 400 credits into 20,000.
The golden 7 coin is a scatter icon. That essentially means that it doesn't have to appear on an active payline reward spinners with a winning prize. In fact, if five of these lucky coins appear on the game screen after a spin, then you will multiply all of the bets placed by 200x. Since the paylines are fixed, this payout constitutes as the ultimate jackpot since it will return 80,000 coins from a maximum bet.
The last of these lucky icons is by no means the least lucrative. That is because the four leaf clover symbol has the power to change other icons around it into wilds, which will greatly increase your chance of getting a winning line, two, or perhaps even more! Clovers only appear on reels 2 and 4 and it will reward the same payout value as the horseshoe wild when a win is formed just with clover symbols.
No matter how lucky you are, you're not going to win big bucks with every spin of this Game of Luck slot machine. However, any small win from the reels which is less than 35x the value of the total bet can be gambled in a double or nothing card game. This is where luck really comes into play, because you will be presented with a 50/50 gamble – red or black?
In truth, this game does perhaps go a little bit over the top with the lucky charms, almost to the point where it starts to verge on the cheesy side of things. But even so, the graphics are bold and well rendered to present a visually interesting game. Plus, with many bonus elements, there is always a chance that every spin could be a lucky one.
