What We Like
The Jackpot is a tasty 500,000 credits, or 500 coins. The coin size is adjustable and the highest coin value is 100. This is a big win from this game. The player payback percentage is also a modest 96%. While playing this game we noticed that although it only has 9 payline regardless of what we bet.
If we kept our bets consistent, our bankroll never strayed too far from where it begun. Wins are frequent enough, that this is one of those perpetual motion game. We played for a couple of hours and left on a high, a whopping $20 more than we put in. While this is not much of a win, this was 2 hours of entertainment and we now have $20 to show for it. You will not find too many pokies where you can do this.
The panel is very nicely designed and bets are customisable. The smallest possible bet is 10p (0.20 AUD) which is a very affordable wager. The other side of the spectrum, is a £10 (20.73 AUD) max bet which accommodates high rollers.
What We Do Not Like
The Lucky Twins are not lucky enough, for Microgaming to add a bonus game to their pokies. Apart from the wild and scatter symbols, this game has no features which are not just spinning the reels. We feel they could have dug a little deeper with the Chinese theme.
Meneki Neko is Japanese, twins are not lucky and fireworks are a bit too obvious a choice. We do not want to play Anthropologist on Microgaming but they could have done better with the oriental, for this oriental game. The music, was the worst we have ever encountered in an online pokies game.
It sounds like a busy shopping centre meets a video arcade. This irritating sound is supposedly Chinese percussion music, but there are no percussive sounds just a wall of unpleasant noise. There is an option to turn of this ruckus in the options menu
Is This Game worth Playing
This game is worth playing. It is not the best pokies game out there, but it is certainly worth a play. The most appealing aspect of this game is how there a frequent wins and with a little luck you will break even on your bets.
This is a solid pokies game from Microgaming. It is lacking in features but if you are after a conventional reel spinning game, than Lucky Twins is a good pokies game to try.
