The wombat says: Locked reels: that’s what this All41 Studios (from Estonia) & Microgaming slot is all about!
Yup, Lock A Luck slot has a cool new feature that can lock and load up to 5 reels with matching symbols. Rumour has it you could scoop up to 1,333x your bet in this groovy game – which all sounds pretty bonza to this Wombat!
These games are getting ever more innovative (the Alchemy Blast slot is another that comes to mind on this note). Let’s load up the reels Wombat Fans!
Look and Feel
A royal blue background and gold-topped reels give this old-skool fruit-machine slot a bit of pizzazz – in addition to the job lot of flashy spangly symbols that litter the reels! It´s pretty traditional when you fire it up next to something like Micro Knights from ELK, but that´s OK – Old Skool is good form time to time.
There’s also an upbeat soundtrack to accompany your spins and hopefully get the good luck vibes buzzing. All in all, it’s easy on the eye. Funkay!
Lock A Luck Game Play
Lock A Luck slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and a stonking 243 pay-lines. Well, they are Ways to Win really, a pay-line game looks more like the 9 Pots of Gold slot from Gameburger. That´s a good ´un too.
And now for those all-important icons; there’s a whopping big diamond as the game’s highest value icon, and it will reward you with a cash landslide of 50x your wager if you hit 5x of the sparkly fellas on the reels. Nice work!
Then there’s a red number 7, a golden horseshoe, a four-leaved clover and pair of cherries – your standard fruit machine fare. Meanwhile, the Ace through 9 of the card deck make up your lower value symbols.
The Wild in this game is the shiny red and gold symbol and will fill in the blanks of your winning combinations. You’ll notice that there are no Scatter symbols in this slot Wombat fans, which means there’s no Free Spins. But more on that below…
Spicing up your spins is All41Studio´s main plan with an innovative locked reel feature.
Let’s explain: On every spin, 2 random reels lock side by side, so that they move as one. That means the symbols that land on these Locked Reels will always be identical, giving you a higher chance of hitting a winning combination.
But there’s more! Those Locked Reels don’t stop at 2, and you could find that these lucky reels expand to 3x, 4x or even 5x reels. Hurrah!
The more reels lock in, the more you could win!
This new fangled feature also means that there’s no Free Spins bonus – which is no bad thing. OK, it sounds a bit scary, but a change is as good as a rest sometimes. You know what they say: ‘Out with the old and in with new!’
Here’s the deal Wombat fans: Lock A Luck slot might be a bit of a one-trick pony for some of you, but we think that sometimes less is more.
Fans of classic fruit machine slots will like the simple game-play and pared-back interface, but if you want the latest graphics, tech and a mountain of bonus features then this might not be for you.
Wombat Score: 3.5 out of 5. A smart and straightforward game.
This game is no longer available at Wombat Casino. Sorry about that chaps!
