In this particular case, the beats are the ones that influence the game’s theme first and foremost, as Lucky Link Beats is a game that revolves around the night club life and it mostly uses music and stage related icons on its reels. Responsible for this modern release is Bally Technologies, one of the oldest developers still around right now.
As for the game area which will be in use, it’s going to have 5x4 reels and 50 lines. There are big fixed jackpots to be won, even as high as $200,000, while winning combinations can deliver $12,500 under the right circumstances. Check out its features, to find out more about the free spins, scatters, Lucky Links and the wild multipliers of up to 25x.
Betting and Prizes
It’s going to be a simple betting system, one which will require you to select a total bet of $0.50 to $100. This allows you to always cover the 50 lines of the game, with the amount going to each one being $0.01 to $2.
Payout wise, the regular combinations of the slot don’t offer all that much, the best one of the base game being set to 500x. The wild can influence the regular combinations while in free spins mode, to pay as much as 25x more, so a regular win of 250x will make the jump to 6,250x, or $12,500 per line.
Even better than these regular wins from combinations will be the fixed jackpots mentioned at the top of the screen, of which the Grand Jackpot is my favorite, its value reaching $200,000 for a $100 bet.
Even the RTP is looking good in this Bally slot, the figure that’s been announced being 96.09%.
Lucky Link Beats Slot Features
First among the feature symbols should be the wild Lucky Link Beats logo, as this one will pay the most (500x) and will also be capable of helping you form many other types of combinations as a substitute. It’s not a replacement for a scatter or a lucky link though.
A regular Free Games logo will be your link to the free spins feature, provided that three such symbols are in view during the same round. It’s the sort of feature where you pick how many free spins you want, but the number will influence the size of the wild’s multiplier. The five given options will have you choose between options which have as their two extremes 5 free spins (wild multipliers at 10x, 15x or 25x) and 20 free spins (2x, 3x and 5x wild multipliers). There is also the Mystery Pick, which gives you a random number in both cases.
Lucky Link Bonus will be triggered via a minimum of four dedicated symbols. Have a Lucky Link appear on a row, to then lock it in its position. 3 additional free spins can be won this way, if the row is unlocked. This game mode plays on 5x8 reels, though 4 rows are locked at the beginning. Every 4 Lucky Links unlock a row. These lucky links will also have the big jackpots in them, along with regular prizes.
Theme & Design
It’s a music themed game, with the night club feel being obvious from its symbols. You have people dancing in the background, while the reels get neon-style card suits and images of DJ equipment, sound boards, headphones, microphones or stage lights. It’s a good design, modern and quite unexpected from a developer like Bally.
Lucky Link Beats look good for a Bally slot machine, offering advanced features, a high RTP and a shot at a $200,000 jackpot.
