Playtech Lucky Emeralds Slot Review

Lucky Emeralds: Demo

Simple gameplay that’s packed full of wilds is what you’ll find in Lucky Emeralds, a 5 reel, 10 payline slot from Playtech. Combining the popular gemstone and fortune themes, the key to success here are the Clover Wilds that can drop onto multiple reels and turn plenty of symbol positions wild. Play on your computer, tablet or mobile from between 10p and £500 per spin.

Basic design

There’s nothing overly flashy about Lucky Emeralds. That’s true of both the design and the gameplay. The visuals are neat and tidy enough though. Set against a green backdrop, the reels include 9 different gemstone symbols. As you’d expect, the emerald is the most lucrative symbols, offering 1, 5, 20 or 50 x your bet if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Clover Wilds

Lucky Emeralds is all about the wilds. Above the reels you’ll see a selection of Clover Wilds. These can appear in 1, 2 or 3 symbol stacks. When they appear, they shift 1 reel to the right with each spin until they disappear off the side of the reels. Most of the time, these wilds are inactive.

Wild Drops

If you land a Clover Wild symbol on the reels the wild above are triggered. They then drop down onto the reel directly below. If the stack contains 1, 2 or 3 wilds you’ll see 1, 2 or 3 wilds appear on the reel. A payout calculation then follows with all the added wilds in position. The Clover Wild pays 1, 5, 20 or 50 x your bet for a 2, 3, 4 or 5-symbol combination.

500 x bet wins

That’s it as far as features go. There aren’t any traditional bonus features in Lucky Emeralds. Despite the simple gameplay, we didn’t find Lucky Emeralds to be a boring slot. In fact, it can get quite tense if you see a line of Clover Wilds above the reels just waiting to be triggered.

With an RTP of 95.73%, you can win up to 500 x bet per spin. The straightforward gameplay won’t be for everyone. We were rather impressed though. If you like slots that take a single feature and hammer it for all it’s worth, then you should find plenty to like in Lucky Emeralds. Alternatively, NetEnt’s Starburst is the most popular slot for this kind of action.
