China is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. Thousands of years of history has created an incredibly rich culture and interesting traditions.
The countries of the Far East, like China and Japan, have been capturing the imagination of people for many centuries now. Game developers often find their inspiration …
…in folklores and customs of these nations. The number of slots with the artistically represented elements of the Far East are the true testament on how the achievements of these civilizations get the creative juices flowing.
Let’s see how Lucky 3, one of such popular installments, holds up compared to the other titles in this not – so - small niche of the gaming world.
When it comes to graphics and design, there are definitely more impressive examples out there, but sometimes adequate coloring and clearly defined illustrations are more than enough. When you add to that a soundtrack that follows the theme perfectly, an immersive atmosphere emerges.
Betting Options and Symbols
This slot has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 25 fixed lines.
As far as the betting options are concerned, players can set their bet in the range from 0.25 up to 25 euros per spin.
…on the golden reels, all symbols are in sync with the theme.
The low – value icons are standard 9, 10, J, Q, K and A but done in such a way to resemble Chinese characters. The highest paying among them is A with 300 coins for 5 on the payline. The rest will get you between 50 and 200 coins for landing 5 of a kind.
The high – value icons look like postcards. All three of them are small children depicted together with different elements of Chinese culture. On two of the icons are little girls …
… and one of them is holding a golden ingot and the other a peach. The highest paying among them is a little boy riding a koi fish, and he’ll reward you with 450 coins for landing 5 of them on the line.
Lucky 3 fruit machine comes with two special features.
One of them is represented by a Wild symbol, which comes in the form of a red bag full of golden coins. And as Wilds usually do, it substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. It also occupies the top position on the paytable with 500 coins if you manage to land five of them on the line.
The other special feature is the bonus game with 10 extra spins and 3x multiplier. This round is triggered when you get 3 or more Scatters anywhere in the view. The spins can get re-triggered …
… in the same way, the round was initially activated. The mythological animal most frequently associated with China is the dragon. Here the dragon represents the Scatter and is also a part of the paytable. Getting 5 of them on the grid in one spin will secure you 50 coins.
Overall, this slot is pretty standard when it comes to both gameplay and design.
Graphics are good, the design is wonderfully done and animations are interesting. Bonus spins in combination with the multiplier are always great, and the fact that they can get retriggered is another plus. However, with 30 euros per spin as the highest bet, high rollers may be disappointed.
