Realtime Gaming (RTG) offers over 270 online gambling games with at least 130 of them falling into the “video slot” category. Games are released from their Australian development labs at an ever increasing pace. Their latest slot to hit the U.S. and other markets is Lucky 6. This game shows that RTG developers are not resting on their laurels, but innovating with each new release.
At first glance, Lucky 6 seems like a slightly novel 6 reel, 10 line game – but there is a lot more going on here. What you have is a 3 reel, 5 line game on the left paying left to right, and another on the right paying right to left. The innovation here is that paylines can run into the next 3 reel set from either side giving up to 6 matching symbols on up to 10 different paylines. Add grouped wilds; the potential to fill all three positions on five of the reels with rainbow substitutes, and you have a game that can pay out big dividends.
One of our loyal readers sent in a screenshot of what this can mean. As can be seen, the more than 1,000x payout could have been much more with other symbols – but $358.50 from a $0.30 bet is nothing to sneeze at. It appears he was betting three cents per line. If the player had been staking all ten lines for fifty cents each the return would have been $5,975.00 easily beating most RTG Random Jackpots. With this game not offering a random, it is safe to assume that the real theoretical RTP (return to player percentage) is about 2% higher than most Real Series Slots as players aren’t contributing to the local jackpot pool with that part of their wager.
Bonus enhancements to the game can seem rather daunting to understand, suffice to say that with the right scatter trigger a player can end up with 25 free games, payouts quintupled, extra stacked wilds, two reels completely filled with wild symbols for all spins, an extra wild symbol (pot of gold), and re-triggers.
At it’s most simple configuration a player can choose to simply bet 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 lines and play the left side of the game (three reels) and scatters will still trigger on all 6 reels.
If you’ve had your fill of winter already and want to bring on spring in a big way, go see what the leprechaun has in store at the end of the wild rainbows with Lucky 6.
