Lucky Twins Slot
Lucky Twins is a 5-reel, max 9 pay line online slot from Microgaming. This game appears to be a very swift follow up to another 2015 Microgaming release called 'Lucky Zodiac'. Both games take a Chinese theme – indeed the imagery used in both games is practially identical. It's almost as if Microgaming had some imagery left over once they had completed Lucky Zodiac and decided they didn't want to waste it. We're not exactly sure why Microgaming have deemed twins to be lucky – perhaps it is something to do with the recently-abandoned 'one birth per family' policy in China. Anyone who had twins might have been thought to have been lucky to bear two children as opposed to the standard one. We might, however, be clutching at straws here.
Anyhow, there are twins involved in this game – a symbol with one boy and one girl although they do look ever-so-slightly different from one another. Also on the reels are playing card values ten through to ace, plus firecrackers, pots, a very pleased-looking cat and a bag of money. You can choose how many lines you want in play by clicking on the corresponding number at the side of the screen. Your base bet can be anything from 0.25 to 5.00, and your final wager-per-spin is your base bet multiplied by the number of lines you've selected to have in play. When you're ready to see if the twins will be lucky for you, hit the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest winning pay out is for three jack or ten symbols, which will pay you 10x your bet-per-line. The jackpot is acquired by landing five of the 'Lucky Twins' log symbol. This wins an amazing 5,000x your line bet.
The twins themselves act as the wild symbol in this game. They substitute for all other symbols aside from the 'Golden Pot' scatter symbol.
The scatter symbols can appear anywhere to win you a cash prize – you do not have to land them on your chosen pay lines. You need to land three, four or five in order to win some cash.
And that we are afraid to say is about it for Lucky Twins. It's a very basic game with only the simplest of features. There are no free spins or progressive jackpots to win, or bonus games or features to enjoy. For a 2015 release, it's a surprise that Microgaming have chosen to create something so basic. Certainly it looks nice enough, but in the cut-throat world of online slots looks are not everything. A little more action would have upped our opinion of this game, but in all truth we have to say that if we never experienced this game again, we would probably not even notice.
