We all know that no matter how much anyone praises their strategy or claims to have figured out some vital trick, gambling has a lot to do with luck, and thus it’s only natural for the theme of luck to have become a genre of its own in the online slot game industry. A prominent representative of this genre is Playtech’s Streak of Luck. At first glance you’d think that it has more of a mystical, gypsy vibe, but upon closer inspection you will notice that it’s actually more of a weird mashup of different style lucky charms. You have four leaf clovers, ladybugs, acorns, golden horseshoes, maneki neko figurines, and the lucky Chinese coin. Now, the graphics quality in this title isn’t exactly the latest word in technology, but it’s not at all that bad either.
What’s unusual about this title, though, is its layout. Most Playtech offerings tend to stick to the traditional grid you see most of the time. But Streak of Luck actually boasts a slightly taller one: 5 reels and 4 rows. These come with a total of 50 paylines for you to bet on. However, note that the paylines are fixed and therefore the initial stakes here will be rather steep. The minimum bet will set you back some 50p per single spin and the maximum amount you will be able to wager here is £20 per spin.
The lovely lady holding a hand of cards acts as the game’s Wild, and as such, she will have the capacity to substitute for all other symbols on the reels. The only exceptions are the Bonus and Scatter icons. Hence, the Wild will be able to boost your winnings by helping complete winning sequences, but on top of that, this happens to also be the highest value symbol on the reels. With its help, you can potentially pocket up to 1,000 times your line bet.
Freespins & Jackpot
Yes, Streak of Luck does come with a Freespins Feature, but you don’t trigger it the way you do with most other titles. Instead, you will have to land at least 4 consecutive wins in order to activate the bonus round. Note that all freespins come with a 2x multiplier valid for all winnings and even extra Wilds.
4 wins will award you the minimum of 5 freespins, whereas 5 and 6 wins will give you 10 and 15 freespins, respectively. If you manage to land 7 or 8 consecutive winning spins this will award you 20 or 45 freespins, respectively. Last but not least, you can count on a whopping 60 freespins if you land 9 wins.
However, the Freespins Feature cannot be retriggered.
On the same note, if you’re lucky enough to land 10 winning spins, one after the other, this will receive the jackpot prize! There are six different pots, depending on your stake, but even the smallest one will be sure to make a huge difference.
The final bonus feature in Streak of Luck is the Dice Bonus, which you can trigger by landing all three Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. Then, you will enter a new screen where you will roll a pair of dice 3 times, and the result will be the multiplier for your total stake.
Aside from cash prizes, you can also receive extra rolls if you land a double. There are also lucky 7s on the dice and a double of those will award you 20x your bet. If you happen to land triple 7s then you will benefit from a cash prize of 200x your total bet.
Streak of Luck certainly does boast an unusual setup, but there’s an abundance of winning opportunities and that’s what counts. It does tend to be a pretty volatile offering, though.
