Your Lucky Day is an entertaining throwback to the popular game shows that were around in the 1970s. Think back to ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ and ‘The Price is Right’ and you’ll have a firm idea of the theme. On the reels, you’ll find prizes such as bags of cash, luxury homes, jet planes, champagne and the host and hostess.
Being an online pokie, there are many ways for people to play. There are 20 win-lines as the default maximum. However, you can choose to play fewer. You’ll also get to choose exactly what stake to play. Some might want to play all 20 lines for 1 coin, or just 1 line for 20 coins – the same stake, but a very different way of playing.
This game offers up a pair of bonus games – one launched by the hostess and another by the host. Enjoy both a ‘Hi-Low’ bonus game and a ‘Lucky Money’ bonus game. In addition, you can also enjoy a free spins bonus feature with added multipliers.
Being an online pokie, there is a free play option for Your Lucky Day. This is perfect for getting to grips with the game. Checking out the Hi-Low bonus feature of Lucky Money picks game.
While all the info is there when you head to the pay tables, there is nothing like giving a game a few spins to find out exactly how they work.
Your Lucky Day follows the pattern of many Microgaming online slots today, with the familiar 5×3 reel setup. Before hitting spin you’ll need to work out exactly how you’ll play. First, you’ll choose the number of win-lines. These are set by default to all 20, but you can use the plus and minus buttons to change this. Then you’ll set your stake per line, starting at just 1c, with the option to rise all the way to $8 at some online casino sites.
Either side of the reels you’ll see the colourful win line indicators, with the number of coins being bet per line displayed. If you choose to play less than the maximum 20 win-lines, some of these will not appear.
In the base game, your most important symbol is the ‘Lucky’ title. This is the highest paying symbol, worth 5,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. It is also the wild. Being the wild, it will substitute for all other symbols apart from the three bonus-initiating symbols (see below).
To win you’ll need to land three or more matching symbols in a row from the left. The biggest standard win is 1,000 coins when you line up 5 money bags in a row. Alongside the bonus symbols, there are playing cards on the reels. The 9, 10, J, Q, K and A each feature a prize in the background, such as a plane, champagne or a fast car.
In total there are three bonus games to enjoy. A free spins bonus feature is like the standard slot fare, while two original ‘game show’ themed bonus games are there to enjoy.
The ‘free spins’ symbols show a TV screen and appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. Land the symbol on two of those reels and you’ll win your stake back for the spin. Land the symbol on all three of the reels and you’ll win double your stake and the free spins will begin. You’ll have 10 free spins in total and every win during the feature is doubled. These free spins can be retriggered.
To activate either of the two bonus games, you’ll need to either land the hostess or the host on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin.
Land the hostess on reels 1 and 5 and you’ll enter the ‘Hi-Low’ bonus game. This is a fun game where you’ll start with a single playing card and then aim to predict whether the next card will be higher or lower. The further you progress, the more you’ll win. In addition, you can also win bonus prizes if the cards make up poker hands like 2 pairs, straights or flushes.
Land the host on reels 1 and 5 and you’ll enter the ‘Lucky Money’ bonus game. Here you’ll find a screen featuring the host and 18 boxes, each displaying a dollar sign. Pick each of the boxes in turn and eventually you’ll uncover the same symbol three times – and you’ll win that amount.
There is no progressive jackpot prize available when playing Your Lucky Day. However, this is no reason to think you can’t win big. As stated above, the maximum prize is 114,490 coins – that’s a jackpot prize in itself. Play each line for a dollar and you could win a $100,000+ payout.
