Lucky Links Online Slot: Pays Both Ways and Awards Respin/s
Lucky Links is a 20-payline, pay-both-ways online slot created by Just for the Win (JFTW) for the Microgaming platform. As luck is the main theme of the game, objects widely believed as bringers of good fortune, appear as top paying symbols. All icons are configured as stacked images, including the low-win Card Suit totems. They may land entirely, or in part, as sets of identical images in a single reel.
A matched arrangement is a win, whether starting from the leftmost or rightmost position of a payline. In every set of images occurring in the 4 x 5 grid, take notice of those enclosed by a gold frame. A bet-free respin activates if those gilded enclosures transpire under appropriate conditions. The cost-free respins could then go on as a series of free turns.
Although this game has no Free-Spins Bonus Round to boast of, the Lucky Links Respin feature could lead to a series of respins and continuing wins.
Lucky Links Online Slot: Respin/s Feature
This win-boosting feature activates whenever two or more symbols with Lucky Links frame align horizontally in adjacent columns. Reels containing framed icons lock in place, while the rest launch a respin. If more of the framed images come into view, the remaining non-locked reel/s launch another respin.
In an ensuing respin, additional columns lock in place if they also display a set of horizontally aligned framed images. That being the case, the number of respins awarded depends on the remaining number of non-locked reels.
There are instances when a single spin or respin produces sets of two, three, four, or five framed images in two or more consecutive reels. At times, leaving only one (1) or two (2) unencumbered reels, and possibly, even none at all.
The corresponding rewards of all matched images occurring as payline contents will then be appraised and awarded once the respin feature ends.
Lucky Links Online Slot: Betting Options
The range of values to place as bets is from 0.10 up to 250.00 per spin. Any amount selected as Bet per Spin activates all 20 paylines. The bet value will then serve as multiplier to the equivalent pay-rate awarded by a winning symbol. This denotes that higher Total Bets correspondingly bring higher pay equivalents.
Using as example the Lucky Links icon, a 3, 4, or 5-symbol win involving this element can bring as much as 1x, 2x, or 7.5x the Total Bet. If won with a minimum 0.10 Total Bet, the equivalent pay of a 3, 4, or 5 Lucky Link combo, is 0.10, 0.20, or 0.75, respectively. On the other hand, if won with a maximum 250.00 Total Bet, the corresponding payout is 250.00 (250.00 x 1), 500.00 (250.00 x 2), or 1,875.00 (250.00 x 7.5).
Lucky Links online slot combines pay-both-ways feature with a mechanism that awards a respin when identical images occur as framed and linked elements. The feature carries on until no additional framed and linked symbols occur as outcomes, or until all reels have locked.
