Lucky 88

Lucky 88 is a game that revolves around the Chinese superstition that associates the number 8 with good luck. The Chinese have all kinds of mad-capped beliefs when it comes to numbers. One of the crazier ones is that many buildings were built without a 4th floor as people refused to buy 4th floor dwellings due to the fact the number 4 (si) sounds almost the same as the word for death (also "si").

8, 88, 888 and even more 8s are believed to bring good luck and fortune, hence why this and many other Asian themed pokies feature the number 8 prominently. So, is this game as “lucky” as its name presents? Read on to find out.

Classic Aristocrat Look and Feel

As expected, the reels on this pokie feature a number of images taken straight from Chinese culture. Golden lions, cranes, a Chinese drum, a pagoda, traditional Chinese lamps, and high card values A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 adorn the games 5 reels.

The Chinese man is the games wild symbol and there is also a Lucky Dice that can be used to activate the gamble feature during gameplay.

As with all of the older Aristocrat titles, this pokie has an old-school feel to it and is basic compared to the modern 3d pokies put out by the likes of Betsoft.

Gameplay

Lucky 88 is a 5 reel, 25 pay line video pokie that includes an Extra Choice Feature, Stacked Wild symbols, and and of course a free spins bonus. The game is medium volatility, so expect frequent enough smaller wins intertwined with infrequent larger wins.

One curious thing to note about this game is that it has an extra bet feature which increases the return to player percentage. Of course strictly speaking, this is a higher EV choice for the player, but given there is no such thing as a +EV slot, I'd only make this bet if your bankroll can handle it.

Good But Not Great

I'll admit, I'm a big fan of Aristocrat pokies. While this one isn't my favourite it definitely makes my top 5 list. If you enjoy the likes of Choy Sun Doa or 50 Dragons, then you will almost certainly enjoy this one too. Try it out for free above.
