Some slot titles leave us pondering the theme before we begin to play. That is true of the Lock a Luck slot game, which has dropped ready for players to try online. Are we going to find some surprises tucked into this slot? We think so, as it mixes old and new for something very interesting indeed.
This game was created by Microgaming. It comes to us in association with All41Studios.
It does, and we would recommend it as it reveals more about the slot.
Classic slots have horseshoes, cherries, and diamonds involved. This one does too, but it isn’t a classic in the normal sense. Instead, we get a bigger game with some modern twists, as we are about to see.
It does score highly in our opinion. The background is minimal, but it uses a bright blue shade to catch your eye. Everything is focused on the sharply rendered icons appearing on the reels. They’ve added the classic letters and numbers as the lower-paying symbols, and you’ll guess what the higher-paying ones are before you play too.
We have five reels in this game, and these present us with a mix of symbols on each spin. The game does possess a wild icon. It is displayed as WILD, with the colors ranging from yellow up to red as you look up the letters. It looks as if it is on fire. It can appear over the second, third, and fourth reels, with the chance to appear on more than one reel at once, too.
Don’t expect to see a progressive jackpot in this slot though, as you won’t get one. There are some neat prizes elsewhere though, as revealed by the paytable.
Don’t worry, though – it simply means we have 243 ways to win instead.
We think so, yes, because the cheapest wager per spin is 20 cents. You can also max things out at $60 per spin.
It explains the rules of the game and gives you an idea of whether this game is well suited to you. If you are unsure (or simply new to the game) try the demo first.
There is a bonus of sorts, yes. Look out for the Locked Reels feature that explains the title and can appear on every spin. This happens at random, seeing two reels next to each other locking in position. This means the same icons spin into view on those locked reels. There is also the potential for three or more reels to spin in unison. If all five reels were locked together, you can get ready for some amazing prizes to come your way.
The Lock a Luck slot does not give you the chance to secure any free games.
We do – it has been reported as 96.37%.
This one is a solid 7 out of 10 for us. We prefer more complex slots, but we think players who like basic slots are going to love this one. It manages to keep that basic element, yet it adds those Locked Reels for some added magic potential on every spin.
The game information tells us the title can trigger a maximum prize of 1,333x your stake. Depending on the amount you were wagering at the time, the resulting prize could vary significantly in size. It would be great to have though, right?
The best way to see how the Locked Reels feature works is to try the demo game. This is free and available at all casinos offering Microgaming slots to try.
