All Chinese symbols of luck and good fortune are collected in one place to help you win a massive jackpot.
Only by its name Great 88 slot suggests abundance of features and hefty payouts. Number 8 is considered the luckiest number in China and it is a symbol of prosperity and wealth, so it is no wonder that the newest slot from Betsoft has this number in its title.
Great 88 slot comes with 5 reels and 30 paylines where lucky red colour prevails in the stunning 3D animation delivered by state-of-the-art technology, along with the dragons, ingots, frogs, lucky coins and other Chinese symbols. Read on and find out more about this Asian-themed video slot.
What We Love
Let us cut to the chase here. What we absolutely love is the top prize of this Asian-themed spinner. The very idea of total stake being multiplied by even 6,000 makes our head spin. If you see a Lucky Box with a golden Chinese ingot it will trigger the Bonus Wheel and thus the opportunity to become rich.
Still, we knew right away that this will be a high variance slot. This means that you will probably turn red in the face much like Great 88’s 5×3 grid before you hit Great Mega Win. Anyway, we like it that there is a possibility of a hefty jackpot.
Don’t worry; there are plenty of features to keep players with regular appetites satisfied. The magic Lucky boxes hold other prizes as well. You could unlock the red dragon and blue lion to help you form high-paying combos.
On the other hand, when coins spring out of the box you will stand to win either up to x15 multiplier if the coins are bronze or up to 25 Free Spins if the coins are made of jade. Finally the Lucky boxes could surprise you with expanding Wilds so watch out for those firecrackers.
What we always like to see in Betsoft’s slots is the Double Up option that gives you the opportunity to double your win or half of it. You can hit the bank at any time and collect your loot or put your luck to the test and play for all or nothing.
What We Do Not Like
We definitely don’t approve of the random character of bonus features. The Lucky boxes have a will of their own so you cannot pick the bonus feature that you like. It is understandable, though, as surely, everyone would always pick the Bonus Wheel of course.
Even so, we would like it if we had at least some control in this slot. Also the high volatility of the game makes it slightly tiresome.
When you hear what Great 88 holds in store for you, you instantly rush to spin it but perhaps some of you won’t find it worth the hassle. While it is an affordable slot with maximum bet of $15, it is a high variance slot and the main game is not as rewarding as we would like.
On the other hand it will all be worth it if you manage to bank Great Mega Win that returns your bet 6,000 times. With the help of lucky number 8 it might happen.
