Lucky Lager Means Boozy Slots Entertainment
Set in a richly detailed pub, complete with different types of beer on the shelves and draught taps above the reels, the Lucky Lager digital slots game is a tongue-in-cheek nod to the German beer hall. Developed by Amaya Gaming, Lucky Lager is accompanied by happy polka music and features a jokey beer brand called Schnitzengiggle. Poker symbols are displayed on bottle caps, and the other icons also relate to the pub theme.
The title is available on a number of online and mobile platforms. Lucky Lager uses five reels, each displaying three rows of symbols, and covered by 25 paylines. These are fixed, so the player must bet on all 25 for every spin, but both the coin denomination and the number of coins bet per line can be adjusted to suit a player’s budget. Apart from a range of winning combinations in standard play, there are two Lucky Lager bonus games.
Regular Wins up to 750 Coins
Lucky Lager uses six Poker symbols, from A to 9, in regular play, with a maximum win in the low values of 250 coins for five As. Winning combinations require three of a kind or better, beginning on Reel 1. There are three symbols of higher value: a Six-pack of Beer, a set of Draught Kegs, and a Barmaid carrying foaming tankards of beer. Five Barmaids on one payline win a prize of 750 coins.
Expanding Wild Creates More Combos
The Lucky Lager Wild is a Glass being filled with draught beer, and it can only appear on Reels 2, 3 and 4, below the three draught taps at the top of the reels. Whenever a Wild appears on one of these reels, the draught tap above it opens, to fill all the spots on the reel above the Wild symbol. So if it lands on the bottom row, the entire reel turns Wild. The Wilds can take the place of any other icons, except the two special bonus symbols, to make up more winning paylines per spin.
Two Different Bonus Games Available
Lucky Lager features two special symbols; a neon Free Games sign, and a Dartboard. The Free Games icon appears on Reels 1, 3 and 5, and three of them showing up on one spin will trigger a Free Games round. This consists of 10 free spins, with one entire reel randomly chosen as a stacked Wild on every spin.
Three Dartboard symbols appearing anywhere on Reels 2, 4 and 5 trigger the Dartboard Bonus on a second screen, in which the player is given a set of coloured darts, and must choose three to throw at the dartboard. One of these can hit the bull’s eye; if the player scores a bull’s eye on the first dart, they are awarded another three darts and an enhanced multiplier. Players can trigger an extra six darts to make nine in total, and the total prize for the bonus round is determined by the combined darts scores and the multipliers achieved.
