Strike it Lucky 20p is a progressive slots jackpot that used to be playable at JackpotJoy Casino. As of JackpotJoy's April 2010 site redesign, the casino no longer offers the game. The information here is preserved for archival purposes.
Strike it Lucky is JackpotJoy's 20 line slot machine interpretation of the long-running UK gameshow of the same name. You can win the progressive jackpot by playing the Strike it Lucky bonus game and making it all the way through without revealing a dreaded Hot Spot.
Entry to the game show bonus round is achieved by spinning bonus symbols which only appear on the middle reel. Each time you spin a bonus symbol you win a prize and the symbol is "banked" in the row of monitors below the reels. Bank 10 bonus symbols and you are off to the game show bonus round which plays exactly like the final part of the TV show.
First you must make a prediction of the maximum number of hot spots you will hit while playing the bonus round. The lower the number, the higher the risk and the reward. There are 10 sets of three monitors, and you pick one monitor from each starting from the left. If you pick an arrow you win some cash and advance to the next monitor. If you hit a hot spot you still advance as long as you have not exceeded your prediction for number of hot spots. If you hit a question you will be asked a true/false question and, in a win for playing online, there is plenty of time to look the answer up using google. Did you know the capital of Turkmenistan is Ashgabat? Neither did I until I played this game so who knows, you might even learn something…
There are three different sized Strike it Lucky jackpots available at JackpotJoy, which caters for players of all budgets. The information on this page is for the 20p game, but there are also 5p and 1p versions available too.
