Luck8 Slot Game Review
Lucky 8 is an Asian-themed game that is centred on the number eight, a number that in Chinese culture is said to be one of the luckiest. Everything in the game has a Chinese feel from the symbols such as the Chinese warrior, the vase and the jade statue to the emperor, who is the game’s wild symbol. With 25 paylines, this five-reel game developed by Real Time Gaming and brought to you by Yebo Casino is one that offers players more than just good luck, but some impressive winnings too.
As a penny slot, this game is ideal for those who are just starting out in online gaming, though even high rollers will enjoy it, since they can bet quite high. For those on the lookout for free spins, the symbol to find is the lucky 8 itself, which will award players with eight free games as well as a multiplier of up to eight times if you manage to find the gong symbols. Since the free spins feature can also be re-triggered, this means even more chances to be paid out.
And if you’re focused on the payouts, you’ll find that these are quite impressive too. If you manage to find five of the emperor symbols, you are in for a lucky payout of 3 888 coins, while five of the Chinese lady symbols will net you 888 coins. However, if you use the emperor to complete a winning combination with four of the Chinese lady symbols, you’ll get a massive payout of 888 coins multiplied by eight. That’s a total of 7 104 coins.
Other payouts you may want to keep an eye on include the Chinese wall, which has 288 coins to give up (2 304 if you use the emperor to complete a winning combo with the wall) and the Chinese guard, which also offers up 288 coins if you find him five times on the reels. The progressives also make this game worthwhile and at the time of writing this, the minor was sitting at a total of about R4 000, while the major was worth a hefty R17 000. As with so many games produced by Real Time Gaming though, the progressives are random, so you will need to start playing if you want to be a contender for these great jackpots.
The game’s autoplay feature makes it easier for players who don’t have the time to watch the reels spin, and if you set up your parameters using this feature, you can let the game do all the work for you.
This is a game that has a lot of the style and ease of use that RTG is so well known for, and while it could have been made even better with the addition of a bonus game, it has a lot of impressive features and payouts to offer players. The payouts are probably what will keep players coming back to this game over and over again, and even though the progressive jackpots are not as large as those on other games from this developer, the fixed payouts are very impressive.
