The Lucky Eggsplorer Online Pokie
March 19, 2016
Lucky Eggsplorer can be called an Easter themed slot game only on account of the "Eggs" in its title and that it was released a few years ago during Easter. However, this 30 paylines video pokie is very popular at Microgaming powered Australian online casinos.
One of the reasons for this is that the online pokie is a spoof on Captain Cook with birds playing the role of humans as you go on a voyage of discovery. The expedition is led by Captain Chook, a comical rooster, aboard the ship Endfeather. Those players familiar with the history of Captain Cook will realise that this is a take on his ship the Endeavour. The high paying thematic symbols on the reels include the ship’s wheel, the ship, the map and natives from the discovered lands, one of who is a hula dancer. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons. All the symbols have a caricature styling in keeping with the theme. Chook is the wild symbol and it also awards the highest line payouts. The map is the scatter symbol and awards scatter payouts that are multiplied by the total bet.
The best feature in the Lucky Eggsplorer online pokie is the Journey bonus game. It is triggered when three or more map symbols appear anywhere on the reels and is a combination of a bonus game on the second screen and free spins. First a world map is displayed on the screen with five chickens in their native costume. They are from Africa, Australia, Asia, Pacific Islands and South America, the lands that were discovered by seafaring explorers about 600 years ago. You have to choose three of these chickens to win bonus credits or free spins. The number of free spins won plus five extra free spins are then played out. During the free spins all the payouts are tripled. Unfortunately, this exciting bonus game cannot be retriggered.
Lucky Eggsplorer video pokie can be played at all Microgaming online casinos like those of the Fortune Lounge group. All of them are reputed online casinos licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority and certified as Safe & Fair by the independent expert agency eCOGRA.
