Click on the Lucky Links slot for big wins during Re-Spins
The Lucky Links slot combines good luck charms with a rewarding re-spin feature. This game pays both ways and has the potential for big wins.
So, this slot is chiefly about the symbols that have lucky links around them and they can re-trigger spins of the reels to potentially build up bigger value wins by landing more of these lucky links to add to those already part of the win.
It all sounds rather exciting and when you also consider that this a win-both-ways slot, where you can trigger wins left to right and right to left across the reels, things get even more exiting.
Let's take a look now at the Lucky Links slot in more detail.

The Lucky Links slot is decorated in a purple colour and it does not have a discernible theme to be honest by looking at the reels and backdrop. Instead, you are focusing solely on the reels and to be truthful, in a game like this which is a little different to the typical slot, that is no bad thing.
The reels each have four symbols on them and each of the symbols is stacked on the reels, which gives you a chance of multiple pay line wins on each spin. This is also a win-both-ways game which means that you can win from left to right across the reels, but also from right to left.
This is a great feature as it effectively doubles the amount of pay lines that you have in play on a spin, without you having to pay extra to cover for them and it also means that players remain fully invested in the slot until the conclusion of each spin.
With a space-age soundtrack that is rather mellow to play along to, the Lucky Links slot is very nicely presented and Just For The Win games have done a good job on behalf of Microgaming in producing an unusual and eye-catching slot.
What is on the reels?
There is a total of nine symbols on the reel and somewhat unusually, there are no Wild or Scatter symbols in this game (which does impact the features available on the slot). The symbols are all based on the neon lit symbols you can see on Fremont Street in Las Vegas and include the four playing card suit symbols (Diamond, Club, Heart and Space), a four-leafed clover, an acorn, a silver horse shoe and a triple seven symbol.
The highest paying symbol on the reels is the Lucky Links bonus which pays out a maximum of 7.5 times your total stake. All wins are calculated as a fraction or multiple of your total stake and the way to win big on the slot is to land stacked symbols together to create multiple winning lines and the Lucky Link Feature is the key way to achieve this.
Lucky Link feature
On every spin of the Lucky Link slot the game selects entirely at random one of the nine symbols on the reels to be the Lucky Link slot. This symbol is then covered by the Lucky Link golden border for that spin. If you land a group of these symbols together across two or more reels then you will trigger a free re-spin of the reels that are not linked together.
On this re-spin, if you then add more of the Lucky Link symbols to the group you already have landed on the reels, you will trigger a further re-spin until you do not add any more links or until you have links across all five of the reels.
Obviously, the higher the value of the symbol that is the Lucky Link symbol on the spin, combined with the number of these symbols you manage to group together across a greater number of pay lines then the greater the value of your potential win.
It is worth remembering though that although you can re-trigger spins from landing a cluster of Lucky Link symbols on the middle three reels, you do need to land at least one of the Lucky Link symbols on either the first or fifth reels in order to trigger a pay-line win.
Free Spins features
The Lucky Link slot does not have a dedicated free spins round. You can only earn re-spins as part of the Lucky Link feature.
Best feature of the Lucky Links slot
There is only really one feature on the Lucky Links slot and that is the Lucky Link feature, but it does work very well and makes the slot different to most others you will have played. You can land some decent wins using the Lucky Links feature and the appealing aspect of it is that it triggers very frequently indeed, although not all triggers will produce a cash prize.
In addition, you can also land some nice wins in the base game using the non-Lucky Linked symbols, especially the higher value symbols which when you land a group of three across the reels can trigger some sizeable rewards.
The Lucky Links slot is a very enjoyable and different take on a slot to what you would normally expect from a Microgaming game. The win both ways and Lucky Link features both work very well and produce a fun to play lower variance slot that isn't going to hammer your bankroll if you play at a sensible level. Wins of up to 352x your stake a possible on every spin but most wins are in the lower to mid-range.
This is a fun slot to play and one that is a little different to the usual Microgaming offering.
