Lucky U is a 5 reel, 5 payline slot from Playtech that can be played from 5p to £500 a spin on all devices. With a luck theme, it’s all about the Free Games feature where the Lucky Star symbol gives you the triggering prize and more free spins.
Lucky U is simply designed and is like Playtech’s The Flash (graphically) – with an upbeat soundtrack (which is quite annoying in reality), symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 card values as well as pyramids with eyes of them, Aztec masks, lions, bulls and purple gem hearts.
The latter is by far the most valuable symbol giving you 10, 20 or 100 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 times your total stake. The star symbol is the wild and only shows up on the middle 3 reels (2, 3 and 4) – it replaces all symbols bar the horseshoe symbol.
The horseshoe symbol is the scatter with 6 or more triggering the Free Games – you will receive 5 free spins and the combined sums appearing on the horseshoes. This sum becomes the repeating win during the feature – each star that appears during the feature will give you the repeating prize as well as 1 additional free spin.
The key to winning big is to get a big sum seen on the horseshoe symbols when triggering the Free Games feature. The most you can win on a spin or free spin is 500 times your stake by filling the reels with the high value purple gem heart. Variance wise, it’s in the middle.
Lucky U is simple in terms of appearance and gameplay – it’s not the best slot you’ll play for obvious reasons but decent if you like simple offerings. I would recommend you play Playtech’s Vampire: Princess of Darkness which also have 5 paylines but can reward you with 7,500 times your stake on every spin!
