The go to theme among Ainsworth’s developers definitely seems to be the Orient and as one of Australia’s most dominant games developers, you can always be sure of a real treat on the reels. In fairness, it looks rather traditional and we wouldn’t blame any player for mistaking it for the likes of 5 Dragons by Aristocrat, as the two are definitely similar. However, the gameplay and winning opportunities are noticeably different and we’ve got all of the details below so that you know exactly what to expect next time you find the game at the local casino!
The Pokie Style
As mentioned, the Orient is most definitely the order of the day on this game and while it doesn’t quite have the cutting edge graphics that some players may be used to from Ainsworth, the bright colours and simple look serve to make it perfectly accessible. We have to give special mention to the fact that this is one of only a few games to feature Japanese fish and they’re particularly important when looking to make the biggest winning combinations!
We compared the looks of Lucky Treasure to 5 Dragons above, and there’s also a handy comparison when it comes to the betting options. Like many of Aristocrat’s Reel Power pokies, this game offers a full 243 ways to win meaning that any adjacent symbols count, even if they’re in a somewhat odd line-up. The theme, combined with the options, means that if you’ve ever played Choy Sun Doa then you’ll have absolutely no trouble with getting to grips with this game! In terms of cash bets, the game offers Play 1, Play 2, Play 3, Play 4 and Play 5 options, with five, ten, fifteen, thirty and sixty credits required respectively.
Features and Bonuses
The main bonus feature on Lucky Treasure and the one that you’re most likely to encounter on a regular basis is the free spins bonus round which, as usual, is triggered by three or more scatters in view. Complete that line-up and you’ll be awarded eight spins with the bonus 6th reel multiplier coming into play. The free games themselves can be re-triggered and are already the subject of a multiplier of up to fifteen times the original value. The sixth reel multiplier helps things along by offering a further multiplier of up to twelve times during the bonus game.
This isn’t the only bonus either, as you might well also trigger the Lucky Treasure feature during free games. It’s a pick a win game with a difference and is the best way to win one of the numerous progressive jackpots on display at the top of the cabinet. It is by no means the only way, but when you enter the Lucky Treasure round, a jackpot is guaranteed to be awarded. Be aware though that if you’re playing for less than the maximum bet then you’re likely to receive just part of the jackpot rather than the full amount, so factor that in before you make a winning spin!
