When playing at any other venue, this information should be used as a guideline only as the game may be configurable.
What’s your lucky number?
The Lucky 88 game has 5 reels, 25 payline and you can bet one coin on each of the paylines.
The ‘Emperor’ symbol is wild.
There are two bonus features when playing Lucky 88. To activate any of the bonus features you have to have the ‘Lucky 88’ extra bet feature on, which means you bet an extra 10 coins per spin. All bonus features are activated the same way when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Chinese Lantern’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you’ll be asked to select from the following free spin options or the Dice feature; 25 complimentary spins with wins involving the Emperor wild symbol multiplied by 5 of 18, 15 complimentary spins with wins involving the Emperor wild symbol multiplied by 8 of 38, 8 complimentary spins with wins involving the Emperor wild symbol multiplied by 18 of 88 or 4 complimentary spins with wins involving the Emperor wild symbol multiplied by 88.
If you choose the Dice feature you’ll be taken to a new screen showing 9 dice. The dice will roll and any dice that show 8 are held all other dice are rerolled. This continues until a reroll produces no new 8’s. The more 8’s you receive the bigger your prize.
A reasonable house edge with some fair bonus features – Lucky 88 is lucky enough to warrant a look.
