How to Play
Set against a purple background, the buttons all appear on the right of the screen. The big round button with the arrow on? That’s the spin button, you can’t miss it. Just like the simple slots of old, Lucky Links is a super easy to play. Above that you’ll find the button to adjust your betting and the menu button, which you can look at any time to find out all the other details, such as symbol payouts, paylines and how the bonuses work. Or just read about it here. Over five reels and 20 paylines, the symbols float across the reels, seamlessly spinning once you hit that button. The electronic soundtrack makes you feel as if you’re in a funky jazz bar and the sound effects when you land a winning combination make that sound much, much sweeter.
Rather than just giving you the standard retro symbols, Lucky Links makes it a classy affair. The low-paying symbols are represented by the card symbols, Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades, each of which has coloured gems shining brightly within it. Then the Irish aspect kicks in for the higher paying symbols, as the Silver Horseshoe, Acorn and Four Leaf Clover and the game’s logo making an appearance. The Lucky Sevens symbol is hugely rewarding and keeps in with the retro theme.
With a name like Lucky Links, you might expect a bunch of bonuses. In fact, Lucky Links keeps it super simple as there is no Wild or bonus symbols on this slot, but it does pay in both directions and benefits from the Lucky Links feature.
