Slot fans will be buzzing with the news of the release of a new Irish themed slot game, as the luck of the Irish never goes wrong on these games. The latest edition to hit Dazzle is the Lucky Links slot by Microgaming in collaboration with Just for the Win.
This slot is a five-reel, four-row slot game; however, it plays with a completely unique game engine. On the face of it, Lucky Links has just twenty paylines, however, the game is a both way paying slot, which means it will pay combinations on those paylines from left to right and right to left.
Our Verdict: Lucky Links stands out as an interesting and fun addition to the online casino catalogue. On the game, there is the original payline structure, which makes for fast and exciting gameplay. There is not a lot in the way of bonus features, however, the game does have a Lucky Links feature which the whole game is centered around. In terms of design, the game is creative but simple. The game is set against a purple hazy background. The reels are also purple and dominate the majority of the screen.
How to Play: Lucky Links is a both way paying slot game which has twenty fixed paylines. What this means is that all twenty paylines will remain active on every spin. The object of the game is to spin the reels and land combination of three or more symbols on a payline to win a prize. To begin a player will select his stake, this can be between 10p and £250. Once selected a player will spin the reels and try land a combination. If a combination lands the value of the payout will be determined by the number of symbols which land, the value of the symbol and how much your stake is. The highest payout on a single spin will be 7.5x a player's stake.
Symbols: On the game, there is no bonus symbol or wild symbol. The symbols on Lucky Links are instead split into two categories, higher paying symbols, and lower value symbols. The lower value symbols are the playing card suit symbols of Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs, and Spades. The most lucrative symbols are the theme associated symbols of four-leaf clovers, acorns, horseshoe, red 7's and the games logo which is the most lucrative worth the 7.5x for a five-symbol combination.
Lucky Links Feature: The bonus feature on Lucky Links is the main draw, and the game is entirely centered around it. The bonus is simply called Lucky Links feature, and it's a completely random bonus. At random intervals, as the game plays symbols will be chosen and framed in gold. Players will look for these symbols to line up one after each other, and if so a re-spin will be awarded. After the respin, if a further symbol lands and is framed in gold, it will freeze along with the others and another spin awarded. This process will continue until no more gold symbols land.
