Lucky Lightning Slot (Pragmatic Play)
Lucky Lightning, a new slot from Pragmatic Play, is yet another sot that borrows inspiration from the Zeus theme. They collaborated with Wild Streak Gaming on this project.
The leader of the Ancient Greek gods is a strong figure, and he has a reputation for bestowing huge rewards on people who follow his teachings. This is certainly true of this very volatile release, which will pay out handsomely, while also posing a significant risk as is evidenced by its high volatility.
Lucky Lightning uses the all-too-common 5x3 reels design, and the developer has given it 243 ways to win.
For the features, Pragmatic Play has included things like Free spins bonus, Jackpot, Buy Feature, Hold and Spin, Expanding Reels, and Extra Wilds.
Betting and Prizes
If you are looking for a decent real money game, then you will be happy to hear more about Lucky Lighting. The slot allows bets of as little as $0.25 per spin, with a maximum bet being $125 per spin.
As for the jackpot that Lucky Lightning gives a 10,100 xs stake or $126,250 per spin in cash is up for grabs.
Winning a jackpot of such magnitude is difficult, and the volatility of this game is quite high (5 out of 5 ratings). With a return to player (RTP) of 96.45%, the slot is good to play.
Lucky Lightning Features
Using a lightning bolt symbol that is set in gold, you can create a wild with your bet. The disadvantage that I encounter with it is that I could only get it on reels 1 and 2. Simply said, it is a replacement for the regular symbols.
Money Symbols, showing coins of three different variations, will appear on reels 3-6, and these will show in varying colours: platinum, gold, or silver. Each bears a cash prize.
Once the Wild symbol appears on two reels where it is allowed, you are likely going to get a sixth reel on the gaming area. Only Money symbols land on it. The slot machine makes the Money symbols sticky, and then it re-spins the reels 3-5 in an attempt to collect more of such.
Depending on the Money sign, the payout can range from 1x to 500x the stake. Each Money symbol pays a random amount. The fixed jackpots, which can be 10,000x the bet, are also paid out through this feature, and they are worth up to 10,000x the stake.
There is also a Coverall feature, in which you must have wilds appearing on the first two reels, as well as Money symbols appearing in all locations on the next three or four reels, to activate it. Whenever this occurs, the prize indicated by the Money symbols is paid out, twice!
There will also be free spins which are my favourite part. With them, you get rewarded anywhere from 10 to 50 free spins. However, to trigger these, you need to land between 3 and 5 Bonus symbols on the reels.
I love the fact that Pragmatic Play allows a retrigger to the free spins by using the same 3-5 Bonus symbols.
Theme and Design
Ancient Greece is once again the source of inspiration for a slot machine, with developers drawing inspiration from the ancient civilization.
Symbols used include Zeus, Hera, the Pegasus, the Minotaur, the Gryphon, and low-value Royals (10-A).
Lucky Lightning has a good appearance, it has the potential to pay out handsomely, and it has the appropriate RTP.
However, I find it too complex for beginners, and this makes it ideal for more experienced gamers.
