Lucky U

Tested & Reviewed by Our Experts

“If you’re looking to return to a simpler time in slots, you wouldn’t be wrong in picking Lucky U. But this game does more than offer simple gameplay with special features we’re already used to. The bonus was quite interesting, which makes us think this is Playtech testing the waters before fully committing.”

About Lucky U

Last updated: 20-06-2019

When we first heard about this slot, we had assumed it would simply be a filler release. Something to tide over Playtech fans until their next big game, and we thought little of it. But after getting our hands on it, it pleasantly surprised us! Not with a mind-boggling jackpot or mouth-watering graphics.What caught our eye was an interesting special feature, and its brilliant execution.

This release is played on a 5-reel, 3-row board with 5 fixed paylines. The graphics are nothing special. They’re reminiscent of old physical machines, which players will either love or loathe. But it’s the simple gameplay and its sole special feature that put Lucky U above many other slots in this category. We certainly hope to see more of it in other Playtech releases!

How to Play

Gamblers can directly change their total bet by pressing the plus and minus buttons on the left side of the reels. You can wager between $0.05 and $500 on each spin – one of the best betting spreads Playtech has ever offered.

Symbol designs range from the expected to the somewhat weird. There’s no central theme, so all the icons are kind of random. You’ll find gemstone hearts, buffalos and lions, a Mayan statue, a pyramid with a giant eye in the middle, and playing card royals. See what we mean with random?

The horseshoe is the bonus symbol used to activate the special feature. The star is the Wild icon.

To win, collect three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. All winning icons must follow one of the active paylines or else the cash prize won’t be awarded.

To activate the bonus, collect six or more horseshoe symbols at the same time. Their cash prize will be granted, but more importantly, saved! So do your best to get a big win here, because it will be beneficial in the second part of the bonus.

During free spins, there’s a Star meter above the reels. Each time Wild lands, the meter increases by one. This also grants the cash prize you’ve won from the horseshoe icons again and grants an extra free spins.

The game has a medium variance and an RTP of 96.05%, which is above the current average.

  1. Visit any Playtech-powered online casino and play Lucky U!
  2. Choose your wager.
  3. Hit the Spin Button.
  4. Test if horseshoes really are the luckiest symbol for gamblers!

"As it stands, Lucky U feels more like a proof of concept than an actual slot. While it was executed masterfully, it’s still just one special feature. We can’t wait to see what Playtech does with this concept."

“Just because it has the NetEnt name next to it, doesn’t mean it’s automatically high quality.Trying out new things can always be hit and miss. And while we appreciate the developers trying something new, this slot was definitely not ready for launch.”
