Contemporary slots have various themes and concepts. There are direct replicas of slot machines in the land-based casino’s lobby. Still, some of them offer special features, like free spins or mini-game. You can find hundreds of slots that are either based on or inspired by blockbuster films and cartoons.


But there are three themes that remain staples in online gambling – Ancient Egypt, Irish folklore, and Chinese traditions. Lucky New Year, released by Pragmatic Play on 14/02/2018 falls in the latter category. Fun visuals, exciting gameplay, wide betting options, and several jackpots. Now, let’s learn how and where to play Lucky New Year and more details on what the slot has in store for its players.




Becoming a good gambler means spending a lot of time learning various rules, tips, and tricks of each game. There are several strategies that often promise a guaranteed win to learn. But slots are different. There are no complicated rules, and no strategies to apply. Among all games, the slot is a true game of chance, as, despite the concepts and features, it’s always “spin & win”. Lucky New Year follows the same path, and you can easily start playing the game with the next steps:


  • Log in to an online casino that has Lucky New Year in its lobby
  • Click on the slot and allow it to load completely
  • Press the “i” icon to check the rules and symbol values
  • Adjust the bet using the “+” and “-” knots
  • Hit “Spin” and start playing


Lucky New Year has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 25 fixed paylines. The slot has wide betting options that are suitable for both penny punters and high-rollers. The minimum bet is just €0.25. But adjusting the in-game coin value, and the number of coins per line increases the bet to the maximum of €125. It’s important to remember that bet size is reflected in the winning amounts. Thus, if you want to get better wins, you need to opt for higher stakes.






Chinese New Year is the main theme of the slot. The design is bright and colorful. The grid is presented as a traditional Chinese house, with fireworks in the background. While the graphics may seem dated, the visuals are stunning nonetheless.


Traditional Chinese melody serves as a soundtrack. But the melody is upbeat rather than sedative to better fit in the festive mood. The soundtrack will unlikely irritate you, especially when you have one winning spin after another. However, if playing the game in complete silence is your type of thing, you can easily mute the soundtrack by clicking on the sound sign.


Despite the presence of inescapable poker icons, the symbols in the Lucky New Year remain faithful to the theme of Chinese tradition. The poker icons, which are made of gemstones, are the lowest-paying symbols in the slot. Oranges, Chinese Drums, and Chinese Trinkets can bring you decent rewards. The Dragon is the highest-paying regular symbol. And the game has 3 special icons:


  • Golden Dog — a Wild symbol, which substitutes for all symbols, except the Scatter and bonus icons
  • The Money Tree — a Scatter. Landing 3 Scatters initiates the free spins feature
  • Chinese Lantern — a bonus symbol, which triggers the respin feature






Free Spins
Landing 3 Money Trees on the grid, you will get 5 free spins. Landing 3 Scatters during the feature will re-trigger it. You can re-trigger the feature as long as you want, as there are no limitations. But there’s another thing – during the free spins the middle reels combine with one giant symbol. If you manage to land matching symbols on the side reels, you get decent payouts.



Respin Feature
The bonus symbols come with a specific amount of money. If you get a winning combination of Chinese Lanterns, you will get immediately awarded the summed-up amount of prizes displayed on them.


But, aside from that, the respin feature will be triggered. All other icons, except the Chinese Lanterns, disappear from the grid, leaving empty spaces. You start with 3 free respins. During each round, you have a chance to land more bonus symbols on the reels. Whenever you land one, the number of respins resets back to 3.


The Lucky New Year slot has not that generous potential maximum win. Playing the slot, you can get 2,500x your bet, given that you hit free spins or when triggering the respin feature. But, here, you need to remember that bet size is reflected in the winning amount. Betting with a minimum stake of €0.25 gives you a chance of winning €625. But if you opt for the maximum bet of €125, you can potentially win €312,500.



Depending on the number of bonus icons landed during respins, you can win one of the three jackpots. Minor, which is 30 times the bet, if you fail to land more bonus icons. Major, which is 100 times the bet, if you manage to land more lanterns. And if all the empty spaces are filled, a player will be awarded the Grand Jackpot, which equals 1,000x the bet.





Lucky New Year is a fun slot, which, aside from proving players with sheer gambling joy, gives a chance to win life-changing amounts. The bonus features are great, especially the respin one, providing players with the possibility to hit one of the three jackpots. The potential maximum win is suggestive, but even without it, hitting the Grand Jackpot is already great, given that you bet the maximum.
