If you’re looking for a simple online slot with great potential jackpot, look no further than Lots a Loot. This slick slot from Microgaming has entertained casino players for many years now, and while it doesn’t have such sharp graphics or bonus games like its rivals other, you’ll still have a good time playing.
Presented over a 5x3 setup with a standard 25 paylines, this slot needs to have all these in play to make it worth your while. This is because it’s the only way to get the progressive prize fired up.
Graphics-wise it’s a bit weak to be honest, and that’s quite disappointing from Microgaming. The idea is that it takes you back to the heady days of the classic slot machines from 20 years ago, found in bricks and mortar casinos throughout the world. The soundtrack is the same, dated and not good enough as even an ironic retro throwback.
The classic looks are continued onto the reels, which sporty the old Bars, fruits and triple sevens. The playing card symbols that have stood the test of time in this industry are here too, ranging from 10 to Ace.
You’ll find just the one special symbol here, the wild symbol. In this case represented by the Lots a Loot logo, typically substituting for all other symbols over the reels. There is not a scatter in this game, as was typical in old times.
Bonuses and features to get you hooked
Because of its classic slant you won’t find one single bonus game on this slot, and although this is slightly disappointing it’s not the end of the world. You can get excited about the fact that this slot machine is perfect for new slots players, those who are just beginning to understand and enjoy online slots – seasoned and higher rollers will not be so enamoured.
All is not lost though. There is a very nice progressive jackpot. This means that the jackpot increases as more and more people play the game, just like those long-lost evenings down the pub. Who doesn’t remember jumping on the gambler after you watch three or four people lose their beer money over an evening, only to bag a huge jackpot? Like real-life it also resets when there’s a big win.
Just get five Lots a Loot logos spread across the 25th payline of the slot to win the jackpot, so again, make sure they’re all active.
Although Lots a Loot looks pretty tired, and is retro but not in a cool way, this game does like to share - and call us old-fashioned, but that’s all some of us care about. Give it a try, but make sure you wait until the pot is full, like the old days.
