Lucky 3 might be one of the recent releases that have came out of iSoftBet, but in terms of theme I wouldn’t consider it a modern slot machine. At its basis, you will find that there are classic fruit icons, which occupy the reels entirely. There are things to set this game apart, even from modern games, not just classic ones, but the idea that they started with doesn’t seem very interesting to me.
A big layout, with 5x5 reels, has been chosen for Lucky 3. iSoftBet created 5 horizontal lines for that setup. You can get a jackpot of $5,000 if you have the right combo on the right active line. You get multipliers for certain active lines, but no other features seem to be present in this unusual slot.
Betting and Prizes
The game allows for only 5 active lines to exist on the large setup of 5x5 reels which are spinning each round. You can set up the line bet for them, but you may not reduce their number. By clicking on the arrow that is placed next to the Total Bet (Coins) display, you will get a menu where you can choose a line bet of $0.01 to $10. The complete range of the bets that you will be able to place in Lucky 3 will be from $0.05 to $50.
The game’s top jackpot is offered by the Lemon symbol, which can pay you when it appears five times on the 5th active line of the slot. The reward would be at 500 coins then, while the actual value could reach $5,000.
Lucky 3 Slot Features
You will get no regular features from Lucky 3. The only one that would belong in that category is the multiplier which is associated with each active line. The number of the line will tell you what kind of multiplier you will get from it. The 1st line gets wins at the regular value, the 2nd line gets them at 2x, the 3rd one at 3x and so on. The highest multiplier of 5x is associated with the wins that arrive on the 5th line. There is an exception there though. If the Lemon symbol forms its full combination on reel 5, then the multiplier is increased to 20x for it, and that’s how you get a win of 500 coins, the jackpot in this case.
There are some things that you can enjoy about this game, despite the lack of features and the small average payouts. The fact that you get only three types of symbols would be an advantage, since it’s much easier to get a combination formed, with three or more matching symbols on an active line. That’s why you still have an average RTP of 96% in a game like this.
Theme & Design
As I’ve mentioned before, the theme that Lucky 3 received is based on the old pub slots, the ones sporting fruits as symbols. The three types of fruits which have been turned into symbols here are the lemon, the cherry and the melon. There are no other symbols to be had inside and no features. It’s a big 5x5 reels area, with a strip of yellow led lights surrounding it.
Lucky 3 feels like an entertaining enough game, and that’s despite the handicap it has, of a classic fruit theme.
