Another slot game is added to the long list of Asian inspired slot games when GameArt released Lucky Coins, a game with a lot going on. With 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 winning ways, the game is quite standard. The design is where all the crazy cheerfulness comes into play. With an interesting set of features to go with it, this game could be one of the better releases out there.
Chinese culture is very rich and has a lot to offer. It is full of different symbols and customs that just never seem to get old. The providers really made the Chinese spirit shine through in this game. The over the top design with much attention paid to detail is characteristic for their culture. Players are in for a fun ride.
The background is a deep red color with traditional lanterns hanging around. The reels have a beautiful gold frame and everything has a certain precious shine to it. The soundtrack consists of traditional music that is both calming and cheerful at the same time. It makes the player feel like they are walking the streets of China.
When it comes to the graphics, the symbols are the most interesting part and although the providers relied on the same colors used for the background, they stand out from it. The lower paying symbols include gold coins with card suits on them. The higher paying symbols are all different animals in the form of golden statues and include frogs, lions, toads, and cats. The game’s wild symbol is represented by a dragon and a fish acts as the scatter.
This is a medium volatility game which means that it is perfect for long term play. The minimum a player can bet is 0,25 and the maximum is 125 coins per spin. The payouts will deliver as promised and go up to 500 times the stake in the base game and up to 1000 times the stake with the help of features. The game has a 96, 08% RTP which is quite a good offer.
The features of the game are not as crazy as the appearance of it, but they are very valuable for the player. First to mention is the wild symbol that replaces all other symbols of the game, except the scatter symbol.
The other special symbol that the game features would be the scatter. It can only appear on reels 1, 3, and 5. When it appears on all 3 reels the player gets awarded 6 free spins. A great addition to the feature is the big 3x3 symbols that land on the middle reels. Not only do they contribute to forming a great winning combination but they also re-trigger the feature awarding the player with an additional 6 free spins. The feature can be re-triggered up to 3 times. The only downside is that all the prizes are reduced by 70% during the round, but they do come in flying.
Last but not least, the game offers a Lucky Coins feature that requires at least 6 of the symbols present on the reels in order to be activated. The triggering coins then get locked in while a re-spin occurs. In order to win the jackpot, the player would need to fill the reels with coins entirely, which is hard to achieve, but also not that far out of reach.
In the sea of many Chinese-themed games, this one can be viewed as one of the better ones. The design is interesting and unique which is hard to find these days. The providers did a great job of making a cultural theme fun and exciting for the player. The features are standard ones and they provide some amazing payouts. It is definitely a game worth the player’s time and money.
