Lucky Fridays is a recent release from the renowned slot game makers at Red Tiger Gaming. The game was released in September 2020 and joins a long list of stunning games that feature in Red Tiger’s portfolio. You might recognise other successful slot games from this company such as Bombuster, Cash Volt, Gonzo’s Quest or Wings of Ra. Whether this is your first time playing a Red Tiger game or you’re already familiar with the brand, Lucky Fridays is not one to miss out on.
The game is played on a 5×4 set of reels with 30 pay lines. It’s an accessible game with a low betting range which makes it a great beginner slot game. Bets start from £0.20 per spin up to a maximum of £20 per spin. While there are no free spins available in this game, you will have the chance to unlock big multipliers, wild symbols and the party reels feature. If that’s not enough, you also have the chance to win the maximum jackpot of 3500x your stake, which is enough to make anyone smile. For details on how to play the game and what else you can expect, read the rest of the review.
Graphics and Theme
The backdrop to the reels reflects something that lots of us are familiar with, a screen on an office desk, surrounded by paperwork and stationery. While this is not the most exciting setting and one that all of us normally try to escape from, I have to say that the graphics are top-notch. You can see the steam floating off the hot cup of coffee, and the digital clock starts at 9:00 am Monday, showing you that you’ve got a long way until Friday. The reels themselves sit inside the computer screen, and the style of the symbols reflect graphic novel illustrations.
Unfortunately, the soundtrack keeps in line with the office theme. It’s pretty much silent… and you could hear a pin drop. There are slight murmurings, and you can hear some keyboards typing, but that’s it. You might want to play your music to keep yourself entertained. However, when you hit spin, the reels flicker with a classic arcade type of noise, and there is an explosion of sound when you land a winning combo.
Lucky Fridays Symbols
The low paying symbols in the game are made up of rich guy paraphernalia. In order in terms of value include aftershave, a wallet & keys, shiny red shoes, green-tinted sunglasses, and a gold Rolex watch. The watch pays out a maximum of £75 for five of a kind. The four high paying symbols are character symbols. These include, in order of value, a lady with purple hair, a bald man, a woman with red hair, and a guy in a suit and tie. The guy in the suit and tie is worth £300 for five of a kind. There is also a wild symbol worth £600 for five of a kind.
Each of the character symbols has a party alter-ego. You’ll notice the difference because of what they are wearing. The party characters are more valuable than the office version of themselves.
Party time special features
You’ll notice that the clock at the bottom of your screen moves forward one hour every time you hit spin. When it gets to Friday 18:00, you have until 00:00 for three of the special bonus features to be triggered. Each of them brings the chance to win big prizes.
Party Reels – if this feature triggers all of the low paying symbols will be removed from the reels to help make it easier to create the high paying combos.
Wild Party – during party time, wilds will increase in size up to 3×3 symbols that may land anywhere on your reels to help you win a huge prize.
Multiplier Party – during party time some dice may appear on your screen. If they do, they will be rolled to reveal a multiplier of up to 12x which will be applied to your next win.
Game How to Play
For you chance to win the huge prizes available in this game, you will first need to decide on your betting value. In Lucky Fridays, it can range from £0.20 per spin up to a maximum of £20 per spin for anyone looking to maximise the potential returns. The game is played across a 5×4 set of reels with a maximum jackpot of 3500x your stake. It has an unusual feature where you must wait for ‘Party Time’ to start to trigger one, two, or three of the bonus features. It’s worth the wait though as they can dish out some significant cash.
