Best of Luck is a slot game from the acclaimed Rival Gaming based around the items that are traditionally seen as being lucky, be they a wishbone, a rabbit foot or a four leaf clover. The game starts with a short animation of a man opening a treasure chest in a long discarded house, and then you’re transported to the slot itself, where you’ll have a chance of landing the treasure.
In this review I explore all aspects of the Best of Luck slot. I start with the basics of the slot and a look at the symbols which will be most profitable when playing. I then move on to the bonus feature, and explain both how it is activated and how the feature works. I finish with a look at the iSlots range which the game is part of and an overview of this slot.
Best of Luck Slot – Basics
After the animation sequence comes to an end and the slot game begins, you’ll realize that this is a 5 reel slot with 20 win lines. When playing you’ll have the option of choosing both the amount of lines and the amount of coins, as well as having the ability to set the game to auto play.
The top symbol in the game is the lucky cat that not only wins you 10,000 coins if hitting five in a row, but it is also the wild symbol, promising more wins for other symbols as well. The green gem and the elephant are the next best symbols in the game. The other standard symbols in the game are the horseshoe, the lucky penny, the four leaf clover, the acorn, the ladybird, the keys, the rabbit foot and the wishbone. The final symbol of the game is the bag of gems – this is a scatter symbol which enables the bonus round.
The graphics in this game are of a high quality and the symbols will animate when hitting a winning line. The soundtrack is somewhat jingly, almost Christmassy – although after a while you might want to turn the sound down, or even mute it.
Best of Luck Slot – Bonus Round
The bonus round will activate if you hit three or more of the ‘Bag of Gems’ symbol. Three of the symbols will give your four spins, four will give you five spins and hitting the symbol five times will give you six free spins. At the end of each spin, you’ll be taken to a bonus round, based upon the symbol that has landed on the reels three times or more (this is guaranteed). For example, if this is the wishbone, you’ll choose one end of the wishbone, and if correct you’ll win bonus cash - if it is the keys, you’ll choose one of three keys to fit in a lock. If you hit 4 of the symbols, your wins are doubled, five of the symbols and they are trebled!
iSlots by Rival
The Best of Luck slot is part of the iSlots powered by Rival gaming software. The aim of this series is to develop interactive ongoing storylines in their slots – although this particular slot doesn’t lend itself to this aim as well as some others in the series. All of the games in the range are available on both a PC and a Mac, playable through either a browser, or on an individual casino’s download version. A selection of the iSlots games are also available on mobile devices, these slots designed in HTML5, making them ideal for use on both an iPad and on Android devices.
Best of Luck Slot – Overview
This slot is a good one in the respect that the graphics are strong and some big wins are achievable, particularly the 10,000 coins for hitting five lucky cats. However the game is a little lacking in features, the only one being the scatter feature when hitting the lucky gems – fortunately as well as winning free spins, you’ll also have the chance to win an extra bonus each time, so this makes up for the lack of features a little. Overall, this is a game I enjoyed, however it wouldn’t jump into my top ten.
