This beautiful gypsy lady has your best interests at heart, armed with the obligatory crystal ball she poised to get rubbing. Surrounded by her charms and talismans, GameArt has made sure that the theme is strong, and the wins are big enough to keep you interested. Lady Luck is one of the better slots that take this theme, but how does it fair overall?
Presented over a standard 5x3 setup with a modest yet predictable 20 paylines with a bet level of 0.5 coins per line, this slot is a very good-looking game from GameArt. Set around the popular theme of fortune-telling and the business of luck, all the usual suspects are here in terms of symbols.
High-value symbols on the reels include a four-leaf clover, a lucky rabbit’s foot and a range of horseshoes. The fortune-teller herself is of course present, she’s the wild. They sit against a pink and mystical looking backdrop, but there is also a sense of glamour here too with the mirror-like images of our star figure.
The highlights of the game
The free spins feature is the star of the show here, and although there are many slots that have good free spins features, this one is one of a handful of slots that really make the most of them with some special characteristics.
Each time you activate the free spins you’ll also get a 3x multiplier that rides alongside the feature, bringing with it potentially huge wins. This coupled with the slots massive potential jackpot makes this slot a great choice for those with a higher budget looking to pocket some bigger wins.
As mentioned, visually this slot is pleasant enough and relatively inoffensive, but the soundtrack is a little suspect and probably not to everyone’s taste. We were able to put up with it for about five minutes before we turned on Kylie Minogue’s I should be so lucky on Spotify, which is arguably significantly better than the game’s original offering.
As seems to be cropping up more often within slots right now is the controversial gamble feature, present here in the form of a simple 50/50 choice format. It will need to be activated from the menu, but as always, it’s dangerous. We believe these features are a trend driven by casino profit more than player benefit, as they know you’ll probably end up losing your bankroll to them.
The bonuses to watch for
As mentioned, our wild is the fortune teller gypsy lady herself. This acts as you might expect, replacing all other symbols to form wins, except for the scatter. Our girl also appears as the jackpot symbol too, so keep your eyes peeled for the subtle differences – see pay table.
The scatter in the game is that crystal ball, with three or more appearing at random across the reels bringing with them 15 free spins. Whilst the free spins feature runs, you’ll have a 3x multiplier added to all resulting wins. There are some seriously big sums to be pocketed during these rounds, so persevere if it seems it’s not going to go, it will eventually.
Lady Luck is quite nice. It looks good, the graphics are well designed and the gameplay smooth enough to keep most players happy. That free spins feature is a corker, probably one of the best on the market right now, we struggle to think of a better one overall right now.
