Our Verdict: Microgaming like to think outside the box with slot game themes, and they have done so again with Lucky Links. Although, clearly having some link to an Irish theme, the game is got a mix and match feel with casino light shows also proving to be some kind of inspiration for the game. In the background, the reels sit on a purple haze, which looks like the aftermath of a lights show, however, the reels themselves although also purple house symbols with an Irish twist. As players spin, there is an electronic soundtrack, which might be something you would hear at a light show. However, it seems as random as the theme. Despite the random theme, the game is fun, exciting and unusual.
How to Play: On Lucky Links players will win by landing combinations on the paylines, of which there are twenty fixed ones. However, being a special game engine those combinations on the paylines can run from left to right or right to left in both directions. Prior to starting a stake must be chosen. A max stake in the game is £250, but there is also the more low-level option at just 10p spin.
Symbols: Lucky Links stands out in terms of symbol choice on the reels too. On the game, there are no big bonus features, so there is no need for a bonus symbol. There is also no wild symbol on the game helping complete combinations. Instead, on the reels, there are playing card suit diamonds, hearts, clubs and spades. These symbols are the least lucrative symbols. There are some theme related symbols, which have an Irish twist. These symbols include acorns, red 7's, a lucky four-leaf clover and a horseshoe. There is also the games logo which is the highest paying symbols worth 7.5x your stake for five symbol combinations.
Lucky Links Feature: There is only the one bonus on Lucky Links which the game is entirely centered on, that is the Lucky Links bonus feature. This is a completely random bonus feature, and after any spin, the game might highlight certain symbols with a gold frame. These symbols highlighted may award a respin if they line up one after each other. If they do, the respin will be awarded the symbols frozen in place. After the spin, if a matching symbol lands in the line, it too will be framed and gold and another respin awarded.
