Setting its sights on becoming the next big slot game to hit the online casino world is Lucky Links.  This Irish inspired game is a creation of Just for the Win Casino, alongside leading developer Microgaming. On the slot, there is five-reels, four row, and twenty fixed paylines, meaning they must remain active throughout. Players will be able to enjoy Lucky Links on all devices, including their tablet, mobile, and desktop computer.  A spin of the reels will cost players a minimum 10p and a maximum of £250.  If players win the top prize on offer, they will be walking away with a jackpot of 7.5x your stake.

Our Verdict:

Microgaming and Just for the Win have combined on several new slot editions recently to good effect.  Lucky Links is the latest of their collaborations, and it might not have the big bonus features or fancy animations of some they have worked on, what it does have are clever gameplay, interesting features, and a smart design. The game is an Irish inspired slot, and in the background, there is a hazy purple backdrop.  The reels are also purple with big colourful symbols on them.  As you spin, you will also hear an electronic soundtrack which can be at times quite relaxing. The Lucky Links feature is a clever edition and makes for interesting gameplay.

How to Play:

Lucky Links is a special slot game as it will pay for combinations both left to right and right to left.  The aim of the game is to spin and landing matching combination of three or more symbols on one of the twenty fixed paylines.  This will reward a win.  The win value will depend on three things; the value of the symbol, the number symbols in the combination and how much you have wagered on that spin.  The higher the wager, the more symbols which land and the higher value of the symbol the more the payout will be.

Wild Symbol:

On Lucky Links, there is no bonus or wild symbol to speak off.  Instead what they have is a special game engine which pays in both directions.  Instead of a wild symbol, they just have standard symbols split into high value and lower value symbols.  The low-value symbols are the playing card logo symbols of Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds, and Spades.  The higher value symbols are the theme related symbols including the games logo, the red seven, a silver horseshoe, an acorn and a lucky four-leaf clover.

Lucky Links Feature:

The entire gameplay on Lucky Links centres on its only bonus feature the Lucky Links feature.  As players spin the reels at random intervals, certain symbols will be selected and be framed with gold. If the gold-framed symbols create a line one after each other, then they will freeze in place and respin will be awarded. If a player, then lands more matching symbols lining up with the framed symbols then another respin will be triggered. More respins will continue until the process ends with no more matching symbols landing.  During this process, regular combinations can still land.
