Lucky Tiger is another pokie to the add to the list of Asian themed online pokies – fast becoming one of the most popular themes in any online casino. The game centres around a Golden Tiger, which appears on all five reels as the wild and is stacked on reels 1 and 5. Joining the tiger are a series of classic symbols from the Far East including a koi carp, a lotus flower, a fan and a sailing boat. Colourful traditional Chinese lanterns fill much of the reels.
In the main bonus game of RTG’s Lucky Tiger, you’ll find a variety of features. The opportunity is there for a big win on any spin. Here are the standout features:
The scatter symbol of the game is a gong – which appears on all five reels. Land 3 or more gongs to enter the free spins feature. Four or five gongs will also pay immediate wins of 18 and 188 coins respectively.
Having triggered the feature you’ll be asked to pick one of the gongs on the reels, which will reveal one of the following three features you’ll play:
‘Lucky Tiger’ Feature – You’ll be awarded 8 free games. During each spin 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 gong scatter symbols will instantly reward you with 1, 2, 5, 8 or 25 additional free games, ensuring regular retriggers. Every win is tripled throughout this feature.
‘Gong’ Feature – On triggering this feature you’ll be awarded with 8 or 18 free spins. All ‘gong’ symbols appearing will now transform into Golden Tiger wilds, effectively giving you double the number of wilds throughout these spins. Three or more gongs will also retrigger the feature, adding 5 spins to your total.
‘Fortune Feature’ – In this final feature you’ll be awarded 8 free games. A multiplier is applied to each spin based on the free game number. For example, on the 4th spin you’ll have a 4x multiplier and on the 8th spin you’ll have an 8x multiplier. A retrigger will award an extra 5 free spins, with all extra spins playing out at the 8x multiplier.
While spinning on Lucky Tiger you’ll have the opportunity to win one of the two progressive jackpots in play – the Major and the Minor. These are awarded at random, with greater opportunity the higher the stakes you play.
You’ll notice immediately that Lucky Tiger has a large focus on the lucky number 8. The game features 8 win-lines and the cost of each spin is 88 credits.
The Golden Tiger is wild and has a top prize of 5,888 coins. This wild is stacked on reels 1 and 5 and appears as usual on reels 2, 3 and 4. A portrait of a village scene pays 2,888 coins while the range of other themed symbols pay between 1,888 and 588 coins. The playing card symbols 8, J, Q, K and A appear on the side of traditional Chinese lanterns.
In the background of Lucky Tiger there is a pastel painting of a scene by the lake, with reddish leaves from the trees adding colour to the image.
The standout symbol on the reels is the Golden Tiger which features a face-on 3D image of the creature which comes to life any time you land a wild win. The symbols are nicely designed and stand out against the dark backing of the reels, with the many Chinese lantern symbols filling much of the game. Hear the roaring of the tiger while you spin, as well as generic upbeat pokie sounds after every win.
This RealTime Gaming design offers an engaging and variety-filled poker machine experience. The Golden Tiger symbols in the base game ensures that your win chances are given a regular boost. The progressive jackpots are always on hand to pay out those huge wins. It’s the free spins that offer the standout moments of Lucky Tiger. You’ll enjoy one of three different features – each one having a very different experience, ensuring no two gaming sessions will ever feel the same.
