Lucky Lightning Review
In ancient Greek mythology, Zeus is the god of the sky and thunder (as well as being the king of the gods). Pragmatic Play's Lucky Lightning follows Zeus and his wife Hera on Mount Olympus with the goal being to obtain Zeus' Lucky Lightning Fixed Jackpot.
Developed by Pragmatic Play's Wild Streak Gaming, the base game plays on 5-reels with 243 ways to win, but this expands through free spins and the Wild Respin. This mythical slot can see players win up to 10,000x their stake through the jackpot and a maximum of 10,100x their stake through the base gameplay.
Lucky Lightning is clearly set on Mount Olympus with coliseums, alters and various flowers in the background of the reels. Naturally, there are a few lightning strikes but they don't intensify until the free spins round. During the free spins round, the entire sky turns red and the thunder becomes even more intense.
The symbols on the reels feature various ancient Greek myths such as the Minotaur, Pegasus and the Griffin along with Zeus and Hera. They don't animate - but they do light up once you land a winning combination with it on.
During the base game, the music features chanting and violins to create something epic. However, during free spins, it becomes pure chaos with drums and loud lightning sounds. It all fits together to create something you'd expect to experience with ancient Greek mythology.
The core gameplay of Lucky Lighting is simple and easy to follow with the only real complications coming from reels 1 to 2 expanding during the Wild Respins and free spins. Despite this, the gameplay remains traditional and you win by matching up certain combinations.
In true Pragmatic Play style, the spin button is to the bottom right of the reels with a crown on top to highlight it. Along with the bottom menus, you'll find bet level, autospin, sound and other general settings that you may need. The fixed jackpot can be found on the left-hand side of the screen with the buy feature next to it.
The maximum win on this slot is 10,100x your stake which can be won through landing the Platinum Fixed Jackpot. This combined with the solid RTP of 96.45% makes it a slot that is definitely worth a spin. If you like high volatility slots, then you are in the right place.
Mythical slots are insanely popular within the slot community but they can sometimes be oversaturated. Thankfully, Lucky Lightning shows exactly how a good mythical slot should be done with engaging visuals, fun gameplay and solid wins to create something spectacular.
For those of you who love mythical slots, this is one that is worth checking out. Be warned that it is a high volatility slot, so make sure you have the bankroll to sustain yourself.
