One of the newest online pokies to hit our screens recently is that of Lucky Zodiac from Microgaming. The 5-reel, 20-payline pokie that has an oriental theme brings with it a plethora of features such as wilds, scatters, and a mini-game that can deliver some welcome free spins.
Okay, so the oriental theme is definitely not a new one and it will not be the last time that it is used either, but we all know that the Zodiac is often used to predict fortune so there is little wonder that it makes a rather perfect partner for an online pokie.
At first glance you might not be too impressed with what you see as it seems a little bit bland but once you get playing you will not care so much about that aspect. The color scheme is mainly green, a color that represents both luck and money, and the reels are full of oriental related symbols. Those symbols include sheep, vases, hand-fans, Chinese lanterns and of course all of the lower value tens, jacks, queens, kings, and aces.
The special symbols for Lucky Zodiac are the games logo which is the wild and the scatter which is the firecracker on this occasion. The wild will be able to act as a substitute for any needed symbols whilst the scatter will be your key to the bonus game.
Lucky Zodiac Features
While the wilds and scatters are pretty self-explanatory for those of you that have been playing online pokies for a while, the main bonus game may need a little bit of explaining. It is a free spins round that is activated when you find at least three of those firecracker symbols on your reels. You will be awarded with 12 free spins which will each have their own random multiplier attached to them that could be as high as 7x.
When your free spins are rolling in, you will get the help of the sheep symbol which temporarily acts as an additional wild symbol. Also, while the spins are rolling in you can earn even more spins by finding three or more scatters on a single spin.
Lucky Zodiac is nothing special and is pretty much a run-of-the-mill pokie that does not quite meet the usual high standards that Microgaming generally offer. It is an average pokie that has nothing unique but is still an able platform for you to win some money from. Worth a try if you like the theme but if not it might be worth looking for a better pokie to spend your time and money on.
