Just like there is a common belief that the number 7 is the luckiest, the Chinese people believe that the number 8 is the most luckiest. Lucky 88 slots is a game from Aristocrat that has a Chinese luck theme, and all the symbols used in the game are all Chinese luck oriented. The game uses symbols like Lions, Cranes, and the number 8 which are all oriented with luck and immortality. Though the game does have a good theme going, Aristocrat could have certainly put in a little more effort with the game graphics.

Game Features

When it comes to this game, the number 8 has everything to do with everything. The game has some amazing features and some of them are the bonus games with free spins and roll a dice bonus game apart from the usual features like wilds, scatters and multipliers.

But before we get into the features, it must be noted that the entire game is playable in two modes. The base game is playable from 25p to £50, but the extra choice featured game which gives you a lot of features to play is playable from 30p to £60.

Coming to the special symbols, Lucky 88 slots has just two of them for the whole lot of features it offers. The Emperor symbol is the wild symbol. Besides being a symbol substituting wild, if you get 5 wilds in your screen, then your win is multiplied by 888 times!

The paper lantern is the scatter symbol in the game. Getting three or more of these symbols triggers the bonus rounds of Lucky 88 slots. There are mainly 2 kinds of bonus rounds in the game. While both are equally dependant on luck, you will be used to one of these more than the other.

The two bonus games are a free spins bonus game and a roll a dice game. In the free spins bonus game you can choose anywhere between 25 to 4 free spins and a corresponding multiplier from 2x to 88x. In the roll a dice bonus game you will be given 3 free spins. After the first free spin you must roll a dice. As long as 8 keeps falling, you get re spins. If 8 does not roll up, you progress to the next free spin and so on.


Lucky 88 is one slot game where the number 8 is everything in the game. The features and the returns of the game more than make up for it. What matters at the end of the day is the profit, and not the entertainment anyway.
