Lucky New Year Slot Review

The Lucky New Year slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge of Lucky New Year is 4.00%.

Will the New Year bring you good fortune?

Lucky New Year is a 5 reel game with 25 paylines and you can bet up to 10 coins on each payline.

The ‘Golden Dog’ symbol is Wild.

There are two bonus features when playing Lucky New Year. The first bonus feature is triggered when you receive the ‘Gold Coin’ bonus symbol anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. When this happens you will be awarded 5 free spins. During the free spins reels 2, 3 and 4 spin together and are populated with giant 3×3 sized symbols. Free spins are played on an alternative set of reels. If you receive 3 of the Gold Coin bonus symbol during the free spins you are awarded an additional 3 free spins.

The second bonus feature is active on every spin. Each ‘Lantern’ symbol has a random cash prize displayed on it, or the name or one of the two smaller jackpots displayed at the top of the reels. When you receive 6 or more of the Lantern symbol on a single spin you will be paid any wins due then all non-Lantern Symbols will fade from view. All Lantern symbols will be locked in place and all other symbols will be respun a total of 3 times. Each time you receive a new Lantern symbol that symbol is locked in place and the respins are reset to 3. The feature ends when you have no respins remaining or all 15 symbol positions are filled with Lantern symbols. When the feature ends the cash and jackpot values on all visible Lantern symbols are totalled and awarded as a prize. If all 15 symbol positions are occupied by Lantern symbols you also win the Mega jackpot.


Lucky New Year is pretty enough graphically and the House Edge is fair if not attractive. The bonus features are entertaining if not the most imaginative we’ve ever seen. All in all a fairly good game.
