Celebrating the glamorous lifestyle of the international jet set, Lock It Link Night Life is a luxury-themed jackpot video slot from WMS Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 40 payline game engine, it comes with wilds that double payouts, a free spins round with multipliers of up to 8x and a Lock It feature that awards big cash bonuses and potential jackpot prizes. Stakes range from between 50p and £50 per spin.
As you’d expect given the luxury theme, the design in Lock It Link Night Life has a high-end feel – giant skyscrapers form the backdrop to the reels which include A to J values alongside an overnight bag, a bucket of champagne, a motorboat and a sports car. We’re not looking at a cheap weekend in a Blackpool B&B here. The most rewarding of the standard symbols is the mystery man who awards 100 coins if you land 5 on a payline.
Boosting your winning chances is the gold coin which is the wild – it substitutes for everything bar the scatter in the base game. If a wild forms part of a winning combination, that payout is doubled. Land 5 wilds on a line and you’ll pocket 150 coins.
The other symbol to look out for the is the cityscape which is the scatter – land this on the middle 3 reels on the same spin and you’ll get an award equal to 5 times your total stake as well as triggering the feature select screen. Here you’ll be offered the choice of 2 features:
Free Spins Bonus feature – an initial haul of 6 free spins are on offer here, complete with a multiplier of at least 3x. Any wilds that land boost that multiplier up to 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x or even 8x. Find 3 scatters and you’ll get another 6 free spins.
Lock It feature – you’ll be given a single free spin on a new set of reels to start with, with special heart and gold heart symbols brought into play. Each standard heart that lands can also feature a cash prize of up to 100 times your stake. The gold heart comes emblazoned with Grand, Major, Minor and Mini. Land 3 or more feature symbols in a row and you can look forward to 3, 4 or 5 heart spins which offer more chances to win cash prizes or trigger a jackpot by landing a full set of matching bonus symbols.
Luxury and wealth are the dominant themes of Lock It Link Night Life. The design, while solid enough isn’t the flashiest you’ll see. It does the job perfectly well though. The features aren’t bad either and offer some solid winning opportunities.
The 2x wild multipliers help the base game tick over. Land a good number of wilds during a free spin and the coins can quickly build. Throw in the potential jackpots on offer and this game from WMS could indeed lead to a night to remember if your luck is in. If you like the city, head to Metropolis in Playtech’s Superman II.
