Lucky Shot’s creator, Microgaming, has picked a theme for this slot machine which is by no means original, but which has rarely been done as well as in this case. The design quality seems to be a major part of the slot’s appeal. It will take you to a golf course, where you can see various players, caddies and the equipment that they would use as they advance on the green. Interested in the features? You will find here a Gopher bonus, scatter symbols, free spins and multipliers. You have 20 lines to work with, there are 5 reels, while payouts can get to an impressive amount, up to $75,000.
Betting and Prizes
If you give Lucky Shot its chance, you’re going to have to make a few decisions concerning the betting system. The options included allow you to modify the number of active paylines, in the range of 1 to 20, and then to decide on the coins per line, which can go up to 10. The denomination range is at $0.01 to $0.50. If you put it all together, you find out that you can spend $5 for just one line, while for all of them the wager can reach $100 with 200 coins.
The big reward in this case seems to give you back 15,000x the wager per line, which is actually a very good multiple. It can mean 150,000 coins from the big reward, which will have a value of up to $75,000, more than enough to change your life for a better, at least a little bit.
Lucky Shot Slot Features
You can rely on the Gopher symbol, to be a scatter symbol which will bring you bonus prizes that reach 50x the bet, and to also trigger the Gopher Bonus. The symbols need to appear on adjacent reels, a limitation which many games don’t have for this type of feature. The bonus feature, once started, will give you a number of picks to make on another screen. The number of triggering icons decides how many picks you get. The payouts can go up to 75x total bet if you had three scatters as triggers. For four symbols, it could reach 160x the bet. With five, the best payout can mean 300x the bet.
The only other feature symbol is another scatter, also required to appear in adjacent positions. With 3 to 5 Golf Cart symbols arranged this way, you can get either 9 or 18 spins for free, with the multipliers at 2x. The same scatter will also pay up to 50x the bet, at the same time as it offers you that prize.
Theme & Design
I haven’t had that much luck with golf themed slot machines, the graphics being on the older side most of the time. It’s different in Lucky Shot though, the game offering high quality images wherever you look. Behind the reels you see the golf course, while on them there are gophers, golf carts, the slot’s logo, a trophy, four different golf players, the caddy and three equipment pieces.
Lucky Shot has the right design and decent features, though it lacks wild symbols and the scatters are limited in use. Overall, I think that golf fans will enjoy playing it.
