Microgaming’s September release of 2015 is the Lucky Zodiac which is based on oriental motives and few mystical elements as well. This game was not a part of some major experimenting by its creators, instead they took a rather different approach where only features players know and love are implemented. Lucky Zodiac is suitable for all types of players, beginners find it surprisingly easy to get the hang of it. Seasoned players also like this game as it has some fairly rare features that are hard to find elsewhere. Playing this game will not only entertain you and put you in a good mood, but will also bring the Chinese culture closer to you. On top of this the frequent winnings and the high return to player make the game even more appealing.
Lucky Zodiac is a 5 spinning reel video slot with 3 rows. It offers a maximum of 20 paylines activated at a time. Since the game is intended for players of all skill levels the bet range was tailored to meet all kinds of playstyles. If you want to see more of the content and play more set the lowest possible or if you are playing to win some serious money pick up the pace with a higher bet. The minimum coin size you can set is 0.01 and it go up to 0.50. You can place up to 10 coins per activated line. With a bet range of as little as 0.01 per spin up to amazing 100 all players can experience the best of the game.
The oriental culture is rich with history and distinctive elements that are characteristic only for that part of the world. Microgaming didn’t find it difficult to find suitable symbols that will blend in the theme. However, they wanted to be sure they have the perfect symbols that will represent the Wild and the Scatter. The Wild Symbol is represented with a shiny text Lucky Zodiac and it will substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter. Unlike the Wild Symbol, the Scatter has a unique appearance and it is represented as Firecrackers that are about to blow up. Hitting 3, 4 or 5 Scatters will reward you with 12 Free Spins. During the Free Spins there is another Extra Wild Symbol shown as a Zodiac Animal. Another thing that must be noted is the possibility to win additional free spins. As you’re winning during Free Spins there is a multiplier that will further increase your prize up to 7 times.
The Zodiac Wild Symbol will be replaced each year to match Chinese Zodiac sign for each particular year. This is an amazing idea that should attract a bigger player base each year. Another rare feature that’s rare to find is the Gamble Feature. Winners in the base game can double or quadruple their winnings if they guess if the card is red or black.
Microgaming always surpasses fans’ expectations. Lucky Zodiac is another great game in terms of design, gameplay and a return to player that should make it to top the ranking lists. It’s a proof why this software provider is still considered as one of the best and a leader in the casino software industry. It is a slot game that has a modern looking design, features classic oriental elements and offers many entertaining features that keep the player excited and wanting for more.
