Lucky Twins Pokies

Twins are seen as a sign of luck in China, partly because it gets around their one child per family policy, and Lucky Twins is yet another in a long line of Chinese-themed pokies from Microgaming. Good fortune comes from getting the right symbols in the right places, especially when the symbol of the Chinese twins land on the reels, while other traditional elements like the playing card icons, firecrackers, lucky coins and so on make this quite an attractive game to look at.

What’s not so attractive is the lack of bonus features, with wild and scatter wins being the only additions to the normal run of play. But there are plenty of people who like the simplicity of that, preferring to concentrate on the business of spinning the reels and hopefully collecting some wins, rather than waiting to trigger bonus rounds. It’s just a matter of taste and Microgaming have provided lots of games that look fairly similar and come packed with extra features for those who want like multi-round pokies.

A deep red hue dominates Lucky Twins, with a simple background of different shades of red, adorned with some gold leaf fluttering down from above. To the sides of the reels are the payline indicators, with 9 lines in total, all of which are permanently activated. This gives a 0.09 minimum bet size, with the option to adjust the amount staked on each line from 0.01 up to 5.00, for a maximum wager of 45.00 per spin.

The paytable lists how much is won each time matching symbols land across a line on at least 3 adjacent reels, running from left to right. Microgaming have some standard playing card symbols, 10, J, Q, K and A, which make up the lower value icons here.

Again, whether the playing card symbols being included is a good thing or not is a matter of taste with some players liking the fact that it’s obvious which symbols pay the least, while others would prefer to see all of them related to the theme for a bit more visual interest.

The 10 carries rewards of 10x the value of a coin when a line of 3 appear, while getting 5 of them right across the reels will be worth 100x, while moving up the table sees the A being valued at between 25x and 150x.

There are a few symbols that are unique to the game, and these start with a silk purse full of coins that pays from 5x when just 2 of them stop on a line, up to 250x for a line of 5, while we also see the firecrackers, a dreamcatcher, cute cat and then at the top of the pile is the Lucky Twins logo which is worth from 20x to 5000x the coin value depending on how many land across a line.

Lucky Twins has a couple of extra symbols, just don’t expect much to happen when they land, other than getting a few extra credits. The twins themselves make an appearance as a wild symbol, looking like they are dressed as Santa for some reason, and carrying a big tray of gold coins. They can substitute for all except the scatter to complete winning lines. There’s no other special features attached to the wild, so no chance of a multiplier win or even a jackpot payout when it makes up a line on its own.

The scatter symbol is represented by a golden ornament, which needs to appear in at least 3 places after a spin to be worth a prize. As it’s a scatter, there’s no need for it to land across a payline, and the wins are multiples of the total bet per spin, not just the coin values.

Landing 3 scatters equals a win of 18x the bet, while 4 will pay 90x and anyone lucky enough to land 5 scatters at once will win a very nice 450x the amount staked per spin.

Lucky Spins on Lucky Twins?

Potential players will either be totally put off by the lack of bonus features or drawn to this game for exactly that reason. Most pokies that simply require players to spin the reels and nothing else, tend to be the old-style 3-reel games, so Lucky Twins is something of a novelty, with 5 reels, 9 paylines and lots of well-designed images to make it a visual treat.

Maybe the maximum bet could be a little bigger, or Microgaming could have added their signature gamble round to proceedings, but these are fairly minor issues and if simple, straightforward gameplay is required, then players should find Lucky Twins to be a good all-round pokie.
