The Zodiac rules the lives of a lot of people, who believe the mumbo jumbo of it controlling their destinies. Microgaming's new Lucky Zodiac slot tries to take advantage of this on the Chinese view of the stars, complete with various symbols that will boost up the luck of the player with the goal of taking home a mountain of credits.
Lucky Zodiac is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that appears to be set on the same generic Asian-inspired backdrop, albeit this time with a green color. The game's symbols seem identical to some others I've seen from Microgaming, and they include: 10, Jack with coins, Queen with fan, King with dragon, and Ace with Jade stone. Other symbols include a lotus flower, blue pot, green fan, and red lantern as well as rooster, firecracker, and game title symbol.
The features in the slot include wild symbols, scatter symbols, and free spins. There is also a gamble feature that allows you to put your winnings at risk for a chance to double up your money. The game does have a posted Return to Player (RTP) percentage of 96%, which is considered to be very competitive for an online slot.
I put a small bit of time into Lucky Zodiac, but I honestly feel like I've been here before. The game is so close to many of the other Chinese inspired Microgaming slots I've seen that I can't really tell a difference. If you've played one, you played them all. With that being said, if Lucky Zodiac is your first slot of this style, you'll likely enjoy yourself. The game has enough variety that it stands up as being a decent enough game in its own right. The bonus features do hit quite frequently and offer up some big wins.
