Enjoy this Asian Tiger Themed Pokie in Lightning Cash and Lightning Link Format
Most of the pokies in the new Lightning Link range from Aristocrat were developed from scratch for this range. Eyes of Fortune pokie stands out as this was previously used in ‘Cash Explosion’ (all-ways) format – and has been adapted to work with the popular jackpot formats.
This game can be found under both Lightning Link and Lightning Cash ranges. The game-play is identical. You’ll find the ‘link’ version features a progressive shared by many machines – while the ‘cash’ version has a stand-alone progressive.
Here is what you’ll find in this big-cat themed game:
If you already know how the Lightning Link Hold N Spin bonus features work, you can skip to the next section for info on the unique features of Eyes of Fortune poker machine. This bonus game is the shared feature among all slots in the Lightning Link range.
To trigger a shot at some huge prizes – even a progressive jackpot – you need to hit 6 of the special symbols which show cash amounts on a single spin. You’ll see the tiger, followed by a unique bonus where the regular symbols are no longer in play.
You are awarded 3 free spins – and need to get at least one more cash amount before these run out. Each time an additional circular symbol is added to the reels, you start fresh with 3 more spins.
Most of the symbols show cash wins. The ones you’ll want to see show jackpots. Three of a four progressives can appear as awards. Missing is the ‘Grand’ jackpot. To win this one, you need to get all 15 award symbols on the reels before you run out of spins.
Lightning Cash versions of Eyes of Fortune have jackpots set for single machines. For the Lightning Link versions, this jackpot is shared between the different themed Lightning Link pokies in the casino.
After your spins end, the cash amounts you won are collected one at a time and displayed above the reels.
You only get 6 free spins with 3 scatter symbols in this game. Those spins can be very profitable. Instead of the usual setup, reels 2, 3 and 4 merge into one giant reel. You will see huge 3×3 symbols spinning around – one of which will hit the reels each time.
As well as the higher paying symbols, there are three others worth hitting in this huge middle reel. Scatters will award 3 more free spins, wilds will help connect wins (potentially across all the lines), and a cash symbol will trigger the Hold N Spin feature.
The Eyes of Fortune pokies are available in New South Wales, the Capital, Victoria and Queensland for both the Cash and Link formats.
Like all the poker machines in this range – it is multi-denomination. This means you can set your coins from 1c through to 10c before you spin. The jackpots will change for the higher denominations. You also have a choice of playing for 50 win-lines per spin, or 25. For the high-rollers out there, you also get to add a bet multiplier.
Line hits, wilds and scatter wins will keep your bankroll topped up while you wait for the two exciting features to kick in.
Of all the Lightning Link pokies, this one has the most distinctive header graphic. This shows a beautiful tiger, stating intensely at you from above the reels. He is at home in the jungle, with lush green foliage surrounding him. Above this striking image, you will see the jackpot amounts – and the header area which shows whether you are playing the ‘link’ or ‘cash’ versions.
A variety of Asian themed symbols join the distinctive tiger-eye on the reels.
It is the giant symbols in the free spins bonus, rather than the shared Hold N Spin feature, which makes this title stand out for me. With 4 jackpots to be won, Hold N Spin will be a welcome sight. Having the ability to trigger up to 50 line-hits from a single spin does add to the excitement.
