Lucky Links is a game that relies on its features when it comes to the things that make it stand out, and less on the theme. That much is obvious as soon as the game loads up, since it will give you images that you’ve seen hundreds of times before, at least if you’re familiar with the works of the casino industry.
The classic theme that has been selected for Lucky Links might be designed to put a bigger focus on the features, and the quality of the symbols is pretty good, so perhaps it will not be as annoying as in other simpler mobile slots.
Among the symbols which were created for Lucky Links, there are ones with the game logo, with triple red 7s, lucky horseshoes, acorns, four leaf clovers and the four card suits. It’s not a very long list, but that only means that the odds of forming those winning combinations are better.
Though Lucky Links will only be available at Microgaming casinos, using either their Viper or their Quickfire platforms, the actual developer of the slot is called Just for the Win.
The developer is new, being formed in 2016 and launching their first titles in 2017. It’s a company that comes from Sweden, a country that has contributed a lot to the casino industry already. As of right now, the only two slot machines that are offered by this new developer are called Lucky Links and Goldwyn’s Fairies.
How To Play It
The game doesn’t rely that much on its 20 lines, as it would in other cases. Instead, you have a range of total bet values to choose from, where the smallest one is at $0.10, while the highest wager can be set to $250.
The game pays both ways, so your combinations can start from the right side as well, not just the left. You also get paid as a multiple of the total bet, not the line bet, which is an unusual decision but which makes things easier to figure out.
The feature that makes this game different from others includes the use of a golden frame around certain symbols. The game will select one random type of symbol and all instances of it will have that frame around them for that round. If you happen to get two or more frames next to each other, lining up horizontally, then those reels are going to be locked and then a re-spin will be awarded for the rest. Getting new frames to lock to the original ones will add new re-spins as well. The game’s feature will end once you got all the reels locked or when you get no more new locked frames.
That’s about it for the features that the game offers. There are no wilds inside, no scatters or free spins. You get only the linking frames and the re-spins that help you trigger more, and that’s enough to get the player a decent gameplay.
You are looking at a mobile slot machine that prefers to multiply the total bet, no matter what combination you’re forming inside. The best reward that you can get away with will multiply the total bet by 7.5x, which for a slot with wagers of up to $250 would mean that you can win up to $1,875 from one combo.
Lucky Links is a good game and it shows that Just for the Win could be one of the young developers to look forward to in the coming years. The theme is simple enough, but it was well implemented and the features were unique.
