Life’s Simple Pleasures
Classic-style slots are one of life’s simple pleasures. There is a reassuring familiarity about their basic interfaces and lucky charm symbols. You know that, however intense the action can get; it is never going to be so complicated that you are not going to know what’s going on. That is pretty much what you can expect from the iconic imagery and simple but colourful design of this new online slot game. The jazzy soundtrack is just as much fun as the visual theme, and to top it all off, there are some great animations as well. Compared to the theme, the thrills offered by the gameplay in Lock-A-Luck are on another level.
Proper Old-Fashioned Icons
Charles Fey chose most of the symbols used in the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell, because they already were regarded as good omens or as lucky charms. They have appeared on reels ever since, and they have made their mark on popular culture around the world. Now, they are going to appear in Lock-A-Luck. No matter where you go, you are bound to meet someone who knows exactly what symbols of diamonds, horseshoes, 7s, 4-leaved clovers, and cherries mean – and if they know that, there is a good chance they are also familiar with the higher-value playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, and K. There also is a Wild symbol. The most lucrative of all the icons is the diamond and it is followed by the red 7 and the horseshoe.
243 Real Ways to Win
In keeping with the fine tradition of online slots from Microgaming and its many partners, Lock-A-Luck offers real chances to win, and there are 243 different ways in the icons can make it happen. You might be wondering just how good those chances are. All41 Studios offers us a clue. The developer said it simulated tens of thousands of spins. The results enabled it to calculate an RTP of 96.37% and a hit frequency of 27.74%. That is on the higher end of the medium volatility bracket. It basically means that there is a good chance you could see encouraging smaller wins every few spins, and more impressive ones after a bit of perseverance. If you are unfamiliar with the 243 Ways to Win mechanism, it means you will not see the paylines that most players are familiar with. Instead of landing on lines, like symbols only need to land on successive reels.
Wild Symbol Rules
The Wild is the only Lock-A-Luck symbol that cannot form its own winning combinations, and it can land on reels 2, 3, and 4 only. Despite these limitations, the symbol is an exciting one. It can substitute for all the other symbols if it lands in a position in which it can either help form a win or it can enlarge a combination. Source: Microgaming
Locked Reels Feature
The undisputed highlight of Lock-A-Luck is the Locked Reels feature. It chooses at least 2 reels at random, and it sees them transform into mirror images of one another. The real power of the feature is experienced when more than 2 reels are selected. If you play this new online slot game at the maximum bet, and the feature locks all 5 reels, you could be one of the lucky few to win the top payout of 160,000 coins. That translates to a whopping 80,000 credits. You do not need to do anything to trigger the feature, because it is active throughout the base game.
Important Betting Information
The 243 Ways to Win mean that there are no paylines to select. The number of coins bet per spin also is set. However, you can alter the coin value by setting it between 0.01 and 0.50. This offers minimum and maximum bets of 0.20 and 60.00. Not bad at all for a studio that launched halfway through 2019. Then again, All41 Studios is responsible for Le Kaffee Bar. The developer clearly means business! Play Lock-A-Luck at Ruby Fortune from 12 November 2019 and see if you can unlock a big win.
