Although Lucky Tiger slots uses the Asian theme as with many other slots games such as Asian Beauty and Monkey King from Microgaming, it is very different from any of the other slots with similar themes. In this five reel sltos game there are 88 winning lines. I learnt something new when I started playing Lucky Tiger slots which I played as a practice game initially; the number eight is a lucky number in the Chinese culture and hence in this slots game you find 88 winning paylines, bets range from $0.08 up to $88 and you can win free spins and multipliers that all have the number 8 in them.
Lucky Tiger Slots is full of Eastern color, you will find golden tigers, colorful lanterns, medallions, lotus flowers, red tassels, sailing ships, fans and even goldfish. All of the symbols definitely offer a bit of Eastern promise and I found them really enticing together with the music, they offer a great atmosphere to the game. As mentioned there are 88 paylines and all of the bonus options surround the number eight. The golden tiger is wild and appears on reels 1 and 5 only - when he does appear on these reels he can take the place of other symbols to make up a winning line. The only symbol that the tiger cannot substitute is the gong which acts as the scatter symbol.
Three or more of the gongs will take you to the bonus games. There are three different options to choose from when playing the bonus game; the Lucky Tiger Bonus, the Gong Bonus and the Fortune Bonus. The Lucky Tiger Bonus offers 8 free spins (yes that number 8 pops up again); all winnings during these 8 free spins are tripled. In addition you can trigger more free spins, up to 25 when the gongs appear on your free spins screen. The Gong bonus will give you 8 or 18 free spins and the gong turns into a wild to give you more winning chances. You can also retrigger the free spins and win an additional 5 free spins. The Fortune free spins game to some is the most exciting, here you win 8 free spins and with each free spin the multiplier grows until you reach 8x. In other words the first free spin is with a 1x multiplier, the 3rd with a 3x and so on until you reach the 8th spin which comes with an 8x multiplier- rather fantastic don’t you think? I enjoy playing this slots game mainly because it is so different, there is none of the same old same old and despite the Chinese theme being used in a lot of slots this is the first one where I have learnt about the lucky number eight- something that I will always remember now.
