Lucky Tree is Bally Tech’s attempt to jump on the popular Chinese themed video slot craze at the moment. It is not an altogether successful attempt for one reason.
They haven’t tried to expand the theme at all. This leaves the Lucky Tree slot ranking alongside all the many other slots with this theme. They have tried to single it out as a “luck” themed slot, but we all know that aside from a few thematic symbols, there is precious little of that which comes across.
Players can expect to find 5 reels and 30 paylines of Bally Tech designed action in this slot. The one good thing that Lucky Tree has going for it is that Bally Tech has pushed the boundaries in terms of the features they offer in this title.
Yes, Lucky Tree contains considerably more features than you would ordinarily see in one of their slots, even if Lucky Tree disappoints thematically.
How to play
Lucky Tree offers up a standard 5-reel and 30-line structure as we’ve said. The wagering menus are a little off-putting since they do not really give you too much wiggle room in terms of what you can or cannot do. Players can opt to wager anything from a floor of $0.30 per spin, up to a maximum stake of $3.00 per spin.
Even though you don’t have total control over how your bets are structured, few players are going to grumble with a maximum wager which peaks at just $3 a pop. Curiously enough, the jackpot doesn’t suffer as a result of that petite maximum wager, either.
Play For Real Money Lucky Tree Slot With These Bonuses:
Wild symbols: Wilds take on the shape of golden coins, and these lucky symbols can substitute for all standard paying symbols. There are so many other symbols in this slot that the wilds cannot replace, though, that sometimes they can just appear to be downright annoying.
Scatter symbols: Scatter icons in Lucky Tree appear as the standard Yin & Yang symbols. These symbols can trigger a free spins bonus round, and offer up 2x your total bet back as scattered wins. You need to land 3 on the second, third, and fourth reels to land that free spins bonus round.
Wild Coin Mystery bonus: There is a randomly triggered feature in this slot. At any point in the game, the Lucky Tree which appears on the screen may shake. When it does, golden coins can pop down onto the reels and turn other symbols into wilds or scatters.
Free spins bonus: Players who have triggered the free spins feature in this game will be rewarded with a total of 10 free games.
During that feature, the Wild Coin Mystery bonus feature can offer you up to 7 wilds appearing on the reels during any given spin. Players can retrigger this free spin bonus whilst it is in session by landing more scatters on the reels.
Click and win bonus: A second bonus round comes in the form of a click and win game. You need to land fortune cat (or wild fortune cat symbols courtesy of the Wild Coin Mystery bonus) on the first, third, and fifth reels to trigger this feature.
Once it begins, players will be rewarded with between 6 and 15 picks. Behind the spheres are instant cash prizes or white cat symbols. White cat symbols can see you win the non-progressive jackpot.
Officially, the dragon symbols are the best-paying symbols in this slot. Landing 5 on a line can see you win up to 2,000 coins. However, landing 8 white cats in the click and win bonus can see you win 5,000 coins. The latter, is therefore, the real non-progressive jackpot. Eight thousand coins for a $3 maximum bet is not bad going at all.
Lucky Tree is rather simple to break down. In terms of its theme, it is dull and boring. No different than any other Chinese or Chinese luck themed slot.
However, its features, wagering range, and cash prizes make it one of the better Bally Tech slots to be released over the last few years. Our advice? Ignore the theme and enjoy everything else that Lucky Tree has to offer.
