Lucky Fridays slot review
Lucky Fridays slot by Red Tiger seems to promise relief from the humdrum routine of the working week. This we can tell by the office furniture and lever arch files in the background and low flat ceiling with lighting panels, all the hallmarks of desk-bound 9-to-5 imprisonment. The music is a little more upbeat though, presumably getting the captive desk jockeys in the mood for the weekend's glamour and night life. Maybe it will end up raunchy like Microgaming's Ladies Nite slot promises, or fun as with WMS' Night Life game. What you don't want after a week's graft is to end up with Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway slot, as after a bad week at work that could really tip you over the edge. So will Friday be lucky for our bankroll or would you end up wishing you'd worked overtime?
On The Reels...
There are 5 reels with 4 rows apiece and 30 lines here on Lucky Fridays slot and symbols can appear stacked as usual with Red Tiger games. The pays for 5-of-a-kinds are Ferrari Wilds at 20x bet, Cigar Man 15x, Redhead 12.5x, Goatee Man 12x, Brunette 11x with minor symbols Watch, Shades, Shoes, Wallet and Perfume paying from 2.5 down to 1x for a full line. There aren't any random modifiers. Now those character pays are actually less in the standard game at about half the Friday Night amounts where they are dolled up for the party! In the standard base game you see them in dull office attire for the lower amounts, and you are no doubt wondering why!
You will have seen the LED clock under the reels. It starts Monday at 08:00 and advances 1 hour for each spin until it reaches 18:00. It does this daily, so by the time Party Time starts at 18:00 Friday, you'll have had 50 spins. Now 18:00 to 00:00 Friday is when Party Time happens, so it's for 6 paid spins. What happens at this office party then? Well, not a lot in all honesty. You may, on each of the 6 spins, get one of these 3 modifiers:
Party Reels - all low-pay symbols removed, so only the 4 characters appear on the reels along with Wilds and these are the higher-paying versions, now in their party clobber.
Wild Party - Wilds up to 3x3 in size my land anywhere on the reels.
Multiplier Party - a pair of dice is thrown, so up to 12x multiplier can land, to be applied to the next win.
Lucky Fridays slot is awful. I don't like these mechanics that tie you in to x-amount of spins before anything worthwhile occurs, which despite the promise of 'up to 3,500x bet' the Party Time spins won't be in most cases. The sounds and general look are okay as is the 95.76% RTP, but I simply couldn't put up with belting through 50 spins time after time, always with a sense of impending doom. Sorry Red Tiger, this slot is nothing but a party pooper...
