So how many Asian themed online slots are we going to see in our lifetime? Apparently quite a few if the online casinos keep pumping them out like they have. With that said, let me introduce you to Microgaming’s latest online slot called Lucky Zodiac.
Lucky Zodiac is a 5 reel and 20 pay line slot game. One would expect to see symbols that reflect the Chinese zodiac symbols, right? Well, not in this game. Microgaming chose to use symbols such as the high card symbols, a Lotus, a Chinese Vase and a Lantern. Who knows what happened to the monkey, the rabbit, the dragon or the snake that appear in the actual Chinese zodiac.
There are two special symbols in the new slot. One being the Lucky Zodiac logo that acts as a wild symbol and the other being a Chinese Firecracker symbol that acts as a scatter.
If you land three or more Firecracker symbols in your reels, you will be given 12 free spins. The 12 free spins have the ability to be awarded up to a 7 times multiplier. During the free spins, a Sheep symbol will act as another wild symbol. During the free spins games, if three or more Firecrackers land in your reels, you will earn another 12 free spins.
The Lucky Zodiac wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols including the Chinese Firecracker scatter symbol.
That’s about all there is to Microgaming’s new video slot Lucky Zodiac. It is your basic run of the mill Asian themed slot that has a free spins bonus round. I’m not trying to discourage you from trying out the new game. If you want to, you can find the new slot machine at Lucky Emperor and Royal Vegas. Both are top-notch Microgaming casinos.
