Lucky Streak Mk2 slot – Gameplay and Features
It looks overwhelming at first. That’s also the charm of these kinds of slots. But when you ignore this, you’ll find out that the slot is not difficult to understand.
The Golden Horseshoe, which also acts as a Wild symbol, is by far the highest-paying symbol. If you land a 5-of-a-kind of these, you get a 500x a win. A full screen is therefore good for 10,000x.
The three BAR symbols are the other high-paying symbols. The eight typical fruit symbols are the low-paying symbols.
The Lucky Streak symbols are the Scatters, which give you access to the free spins.
Cash Stoppa Bonus
Fortunately, the main game is cheered up with the Cash Stoppa Bonus, which you see on the left and the screen’s righthand side.
Some symbols have points (1, 2 or 3 points). If you spin at least 11 points, you activate the Cash Stoppa Bonus.
You may (must) press the Cash Stoppa button (at the bottom on the right side) until you get paid out a win. If you’re lucky, it is 500x the total stake.
Wins are expressed in x times the bet per line. But as you’re playing with 20 fixed paylines, you have to divide the win by 20. The top win of 10.000x becomes 500x that way.
Lucky Streak Trail (free spins)
You activate the free spins when you spin three Scatters.
Now you get to press a large green button to find out how many (up to 15) free spins you get.
The lovely thing is that every single free spin is a winner. You also get to retrigger the free spins if you manage to spin three or more scatters. These also yield lovely wins (100x for a 5-of-a-kind). Like in the main game, the Horseshoes (and Wild symbols) are the most lucrative symbols.
Payout percentage (RTP)
The payout percentage of Lucky Streak Mk2 is an OK 96.32%.
Lucky Streak Mk2 slot – the variance (volatility) is medium to high.
Big Time Gaming does not reveal what the variance is. I see that wins will easily top the 500x and perhaps even several thousands of times the bet.
I expect the variance to be medium to high.
Pros and Cons
- Bearing in mind that it’s a retro slot, this slot has a lot to offer. Both in terms of gaming fun and win potential.
- You feel you’re playing in an old-fashioned arcade hall.
- It’s still a retro slot, and you have to love it.
- It becomes a bit monotonous at some stage.
So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?
Anyone who loves (fruit) retro slots will also love this slot. But this slot is still entertaining and worthwhile playing, even if you don’t have a thing for retro slots.
However, once you’ve seen the Cash Stoppa Bonus and the Lucky Streak Trail (free spins), you’ll likely switch to something different.
