While Lucky New Year is yet another title with a Chinese holiday theme, this 5-reel, 25-payline title has the graphics and overall appearance that will keep bettors spinning the reels. Lucky New Year is filled with golden dragons, firecrackers, drums, cherries and a J through A symbol set for the lower paying symbols. The golden tree is the scatter and it is only found on the first, third and fifth reels of the game; the red lantern is the symbol that triggers the bonus game and can lead to the jackpot. The golden dog is the wild and can replace any symbol except the golden tree and the red lantern.
Coin sizes start at $0.01 and top out at $0.50 but slot spinners can wager up to 10 coins per payline making the maximum payline wager $5. If a punter bets on the full 25 paylines, the single spin bet range is $0.25 and $125. This is title for all size bettors from the smallest to the largest bankrolls. The bonus features bring value to this title with no requirements as to minimum wager to qualify for the three jackpots.
When three golden trees appear on the reels, a player is awarded five free spins with the three center reels acting as a single symbol; this gives bettors a greater chance of creating a four or five symbol payline and a higher payout. The free spins round can be retriggered an unlimited number of times but only three spins are awarded on a retrigger. If a punter finds six or more red lanterns on the reels, it will begin the bonus game; each lantern is locked into place and contains an amount based on the wager, the minor jackpot and the major jackpot. The player is awarded three respins that reset each time another red lantern lands on the board. If all 15 symbols are filled with red lanterns, the mega jackpot is awarded, the bonus also ends when a player runs out of respins.
Lucky New Year Slots is yet another quality slot release for developer Pragmatic Play. The graphics are well-rendered for a game that is not 3D and the bonus content make this title a great value and opportunity for anyone who enjoys spending time spinning the reels at a favorite online casino.
