Lucky88: My Opinion
Aristocrat have released their popular land-based Lucky88 slot machine
online (should probably refer to them as pokies with Aristocrat being an Australian company I guess) joining their popular games the Zorro slot and the popular Choy Sun Doa slot as online games. More slots are pencilled in to follow - check out the Aristocrat slots
for the latest games at any time - I generally update the site when new games arrive on the scene.
Like the Novomatic slots
, Aristocrat games have an old-skool feel to them and are generally quite high variance. The Lucky88 slot is no exception but it has a really interesting wild symbol that can multiply wins up to 88x at random. In the free spins feature (see the video above) you can pick how many spins and what multipliers you want, again up to 88x. There is also a "Roll The Dice
" feature which is like a pick 'em
style award and not quite so exciting. Again, the video above shows this feature aswell.
A note on the RTP (expected returns to player) on the Lucky 88 game. All Aristocrat slots are generally set to between 94% and 97% payback with most being at around 95% (source: Aristocrat website, November 2011
) including games like 50 Dragons and 50 Lions, both of which weigh in at marginally under 95%. However, on Lucky88, if you play the 'Antebet
' feature to activate the Dice Roll feature, the RTP is closer to 97%!
The free spins bonus on the Lucky 88 slot game - or more accurately, the options that are provided when you get to the free spins bonus - take on a similarity to the way the bonus works in Queen Of The Nile 2 and like that one, Lucky 88 should be treated with some respect: it can eat through a bankroll very quickly if you don't get the feature but for that alone, it's worth playing. Good fun.
