Lucky Zodiac Feature ImageIt is fair to say that all slot players are big believers in luck. However, do you know how to maximise your luck? One way to do so is by reading your horoscopes. There are various branches of astrology that you can subscribe to; the most popular of which are Western horoscopes and Chinese zodiacs. This new slot explores the latter. Microgaming’s new slot, Lucky Zodiac features these 12 animals of the Chinese animal zodiac, multipliers and more!

Lucky Zodiac is a 5×3 reel, 20 line slot game. These reels feature card values ten to ace, plus cute illustrations of the animals associated with the Chinese calendar. Lucky Zodiac is quite a profitable slot. You can win up to 140,000 times the total stake per line! The winning frequency is pretty average and I would class this game as a medium-variance slot.

Lucky Zodiac Gameplay

Lucky Zodiac accepts wagers from 1p to 50p per payline. Assuming you choose to play with the maximum 20 paylines, that’s a minimum wager of 20p and a maximum wager of 10 pounds per spin.

For starters, Lucky Zodiac includes the usual wild symbols and free spins. The Wild symbols substitutes all symbols except the firecrackers; subsequently increasing your chances for winning! In order to win free spins, you’ll need to score at least three firecrackers in any position on the reels.

When this happens, you’ll be rewarded with 12 free spins and 7x multipliers! On top of that, the Zodiac symbol becomes wild during free spins mode. This means that there are two active Wild symbols during free spins mode — the regular Wild symbol and the Lucky Zodiac.

Lucky Zodiac Free Spin Feature

There is also a gamble feature, which is activated after every win. If you choose to partake in this round, you’ll have to choose from either red or black. The game then pulls a card from the virtual deck of cards. If the card drawn matches the colour of your choice, you’ll double your winnings! Be careful though — if you lose, you’ll forfeit all winnings from that round. This feature is proving popular among players, as it adds extra excitement to a regular game of slots.

The designers have successfully evoked quite an Oriental feel in this slot. There are lanterns, lotus blossoms and firecrackers; plus an overall red-coloured aesthetic. The same way dining at a posh teahouse makes me feel ladylike, these Oriental lucky charms make me feel a tad luckier than  usual! That’s not a bad feeling to have while gambling…

Since Lucky Zodiac is developed by the world’s leading slot developer, Microgaming, the game is as reliable as can be. The game’s HD graphics loads quickly; it hardly crashes. The user interface is always very easy to use. The quick-access menu allows you to configure the game settings to your preferences.

Unique Features?

Here’s a little gimmick that might pique your interest. The Chinese zodiac is a rotating cycle of 12 years, which each year being represented by an animal and its reputed attributes. For example, people born in the year of the rabbits are typically cautious people — they’d never take huge risks while gambling.

Every Chinese New Year, the animal of the year changes and another set of astrological conditions come into play. In the slot game, the featured animal changes too! You’d always be playing with optimal conditions for fortune.

Droid Slots' Stamp of ApprovalMicrogaming did not pack very many features into this game. Besides the unique gimmick of updating the feature animal every year, the game is relatively standard. We have seen Wild symbols and the gamble feature at many other slot games in the market. The mathematical algorithm isn’t particularly fortuitous and there isn’t a jackpot either. I’d recommend that you give the game a short visit. Take it as a visit to the Oriental corners of the Internet. You may become quite fond of it!
