If luck is what New Year’s is all about, then Lucky Wizard is the slot that best encapsulates this. The Red Tiger Gaming video slot is played on a 5x4 grid and offers 40 paylines. Unlike Lucky Links, Lucky Wizard has more features on offer including a wild symbol. It is available on mobiles, desktops and tablets and accepts bets from €/£0.10 to €/£500. As the name suggests, Lucky Wizard features a magic theme whilst the reels sit in front of a very green forest.
The video slot’s symbols includes the four card suits – spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs – along with higher valued symbols such as a book of spells, wizard hats, golden stars and golden horseshoes. The golden horseshoe is the most rewarding standard symbol, paying 480x your stake for landing 5 across a payline. The game also includes a golden 4-leaf clover wild, that substitutes for all standard symbols to help and form winning combinations. It can pay up to 800x your stake for landing 5 across a payline. The slot’s scatter is a golden symbol with the words Lucky Bonus written on it. There is also an instant cash symbol, the Lucky Win.
If the Lucky Win symbol lands anywhere on the middle reel, you are guaranteed an instant big cash prize. If you land 3 Lucky Bonus scatters on your screen, you will trigger the bonus round, where you have to pick from potions to win cash prizes.
At any point during the game, the wizard can appear, awarding you with one of the following bonuses:
- Lucky Bonus: Triggers the bonus round
- Lucky Win: Awards a big win
- Lucky Reels: Removes all the lower valued card suit symbols from the reels
- Lucky Nudge: Nudges the reels, resulting in a guaranteed winning combination
- Random Wilds: Adds extra wilds onto the reels
- Lucky Swap: Any win with lower valued symbols is substituted for a win with higher valued symbols
New Year’s wouldn’t be complete without a bit of Lady Luck. Or in this case, iSoftBet’s Lucky Lady slot. The title is played on 3 reels, 3 rows and offers 5 paylines, accepting wagers from €/£0.25 to €/£25. The maximum win amount for this classic slot is a fixed 1,000x your stake. However, there is also a progressive jackpot up for grabs.
Lucky Lady is a typical classic fruit machine. The symbols include red 7s, bells, cherries, a single bar, a double bar and a triple bar. In addition, there is also a Lucky Lady Wild, that will arrive stacked and double any win. The wild substitutes all standard symbols but doesn’t replace the jackpot or bonus symbol (which is the game’s logo).
Landing 3 of the diamond jackpot symbols will trigger the progressive jackpot. In addition, landing 3 lucky lady symbols will warrant a payout of 1,000x your stake. The red 7s pay 400x, the bells pay 300x, the cherries pay 200x, the triple bars pay 100x, the double bars pay 50x, the single bar pays 50x and a combination of any three bar symbols will pay 15x. Keep in mind, forming a winner with a wild will double these payouts.
Last but not least, Joker’s Luck from Skywind is the ultimate go-to game for a lucky New Year. Ultimately, Joker’s Luck is a suitable name for a game that has 1 reel and 1 payline. In order to claim a winner, you will need to land either the horseshoe, star or bell symbol in full.
Joker’s Luck has only 5 symbols and accepts any wager from €/£0.01 to €/£300. The slot is highly volatile and has the option of playing with up to 99 autospins. The RTP is 97.5%, which is also very high.
Much like Lucky Lady, the Skywind slot is somewhat reminiscent of a classic fruit machine. The visuals look rather slick and were developed for easy viewing. As for the symbols, you can expect to come across a bell, a horseshoe, a star, a smiling joker and a red joker. There is only one bonus feature in Joker’s Luck, the Cashpot.
Essentially, the Cashpot is three towers that sit above the reel representing the bell, the star and the horseshoe symbols. The towers are made up of 5 tiers. The top tier of the towers have big cash prizes and the bottom tier have small cash prizes. Every time you land one of the symbols in full, you will move up one tier, always starting from the bottom. When you land on the smiling joker, you will move up a tier on all three towers. You can withdraw your Cashpot at any time while playing. Here’s what the tiers look like:
- The bell has 5 tiers. The payouts from bottom to top are: 10x, 40x, 100x, 200x and 350x your stake.
- The star has 5 tiers. The payouts from bottom to top are: 3x, 8x, 16x, 29x and 50x your stake.
- The horseshoe has 5 tiers. The payouts from bottom to top are: 1x, 2x, 4x, 7x and 10x your stake.
The only downside to Joker’s Luck is the red joker. Whenever it lands on the reel, it will bring all the towers down to the bottom tier. In doing so, all the prizes that you have accumulated in the Cashpot prize will be lost. The silver lining in this is the Bonus Prize. If you can fill up the three towers to their maximum capacity, you will trigger the Bonus Prize. This amount is worth 500x your stake.
If you’re considering celebrating the New Year with some luck, then you’re in the right place. Celebrate the coming year in style with one of these slots and hopefully, you’ll hit some very lucky big wins.
