Microgaming's Lucky News Network Video Slot Review

March 29, 2013

 

Now here's a slot with a theme that's different. The Lucky News Network slot is based on a fictional television news show, and it features a pretty cool theme with reporters, anchors, cameraman and more of the things that you would normally associate with a news program. The payouts in this game are somewhat low, but you get them more often than you would in some of the games with larger jackpots. This helps to give the game a smooth feel since your swings aren't as dramatic. Overall, this game is great for players who like solid slots with good payout tables.

With Lucky News Network, you'll be able to set your coin sizes from $0.01 to $0.25. There are 20 paylines total, and you can bet up to 20 coins on each individual payline. This means the maximum bet is 400 coins, and you can bet up to $100 per spin. The lowest bet per spin with all paylines activated is just $0.20, so you'll have a good time playing this slot no matter how large or small your bankroll is. It's recommended that you maximize your value and activate all of the game's features by keeping all 20 paylines activated at all times.

Every news program has a logo that flashes on the screen all of the time, and you can expect the same thing from the Lucky News Network slot. The Lucky News Network logo symbol is the wild symbol for this game, and it's the key to getting the 2,000x jackpot. Five of the wild on an activated payline will get you this jackpot. The wilds are not limited, and substitute for everything except for the scatter symbol. This means that you'll have plenty of shots at getting awesome payouts.

The Bonus Bulletin symbols show up on the first and fifth reel. Get them both to show up at the same time, and you'll get a shot at a bonus feature. There are a bunch of different features that you can get including instant wins and free turns. The free spins are given multipliers worth up to 5x, and you can get up to 20 free turns at once. With the multiplier in place, you can win prizes worth up to 10,000x for five of the wild symbol. It's clear to see that the bonus features are where players will get a lot of their value with the Lucky News Network slot.
