An Asian Themed Pokie with Three Progressive Jackpots to be Won
Asian themed pokies are some of the most popular games on the casino floor, with players being drawn to the artistic and colourful imagery. Lucky Pig is another fine pokie to add to the collection. The pig, one of the animals featured in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac and is considered to be the luckiest animal on the list – hence the title. The pig on these reels is a small golden statue holding a golden ingot. Joining the pig are gold coins and further ingots, while firecrackers and an ancient Oriental style vase also appears.
Reasons You Should Beef Up Your Bankroll with Lucky Pig
The online pokie Lucky Pig is an entertaining Asian-themed poker machine from Aristocrat, with the following range of engaging features:
On the middle reel of the five you’ll find a symbol showing three crowns on a blue background. The Jackpot feature is triggered when you land a five in a row win, with the Jackpot symbol substituting as a wild (this is one of two wilds in the game) on reel three.
You’ll now touch reel three and activate the Jackpot reel. The reel will change from a standard game reel into one now featuring a series of multipliers and crowns. Land one of the multipliers and this will be applied to your win – with x2, x3, x5, x8 and x10 multipliers on the reel, you could be looking at a huge win.
Things get even more interesting when you hit the crown symbol. Now you’ll be guaranteed to win either the Grand, Major or Minor Jackpots or a bonus prize of 500, 1,000 or 1,500 credits. The Grand Jackpot usually offers a very attractive four-figure prize, turning any session into an amazing one.
As well as winning one of the three progressive jackpots on the reels, you can also be awarded one of the three prizes completely randomly. A nice and very unexpected surprise.
The game’s scatter symbol is a golden door knocker featuring the face of a beast. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll win 5x, 10x or 50x your total stake, as well as entering the free spins bonus feature.
Your free spins play in a similar way to the base game, apart from one important difference. There are many more crowns on reel three. This means there are more wilds around, making your standard wins easier to come by. You’ll also have many more opportunities of winning a progressive jackpot too.
Lucky Pig plays out on a 5×3 reel set up with the Jackpot Reel Power system in play. ‘Reel Power’ is Aristocrat’s take on the all-ways winning system, where you’ll win when landing matching symbols from left to right on consecutive reels, regardless of where they land on those reels. In all this allows for 243 ways to win on every spin.
Your wins are aided by the crown symbol on reel three and the Asian wording symbol on reels 2 and 4, each of which act as a wild. With all these wilds in play, as well as the all-ways winning system, wins are very regular.
Lucky Pig plays out against the backdrop of a delightful ancient town setting. Arched bridges and hills all hold dwellings, while angular trees add that natural feel. The game is played at sunset, with a distinctive orange sky and the town setting in a silhouetted red. The range of symbols add a nice glow of gold to the red backed reels, while the playing card symbols add a variety of colour too. The game has a mostly generic soundtrack, with the occasional tie-in with the Asian theme.
Aristocrat have come up with an Asian themed pokie here with a welcome jackpot twist. With the ‘Jackpot Reel Power’ format, you’ll never be waiting too long for a win in the base game, especially with all of those wilds hanging around. Look out for those ‘crown’ added 5 in a row wins, where the Jackpot reel is ready to pay big, while the jackpot opportunities are even greater during the free spins. You might even win a random progressive jackpot too. If you don’t feel lucky now, you never will!
