Pragmatic Play – Lucky Lightning – Free Slot Game

Pragmatic gaming partner Wild Streak Gaming has created Lucky Lightning, a somewhat generic-looking slot for ancient Greece, but one that stands out a bit from similar games. The ever-popular Hold & Respin feature plays a central role in all stages of the game, but here it’s more of a lightning round version. You won’t get any new answers, as is usually the case, but the 1-answer chance you get can certainly lead to significant payouts.

You can expect the Money Collect Respin feature to be triggered more often in the bonus round, although it also occurs frequently in the base game. You will get many different “big win” messages, such as “you are a rock star” and “you are on fire”. This can be fun when it’s earned, but annoying when the payout isn’t really impressive. If you enjoy a lot of action and unpredictability, this game offers both, all based on a solid mathematical model that can pay off at any time.

Lucky Lightning Slot Features

The golden lightning coin is the wild symbol and can only land on reels 1 and 2. If you land a wild symbol on both reels 1 and 2 on the same spin, the reel set may expand to a 3-3-4-4-4 setup with 6 reels.

This also triggers the Hold & Respin feature , where all money symbols on reels 3 through 5/6 become sticky for a respin . All adjacent money symbols from reel 3 are collected after the respin, and reel 6 may contain only money symbols. The money symbols land with random values between 1 times and 500 times your bet.

In addition to the regular money symbols, you can also land silver, gold and platinum jackpot symbols on reels 3 to 5/6. These correspond to fixed jackpots that are worth 50x, 250x and 10,000x your bet. The coverall feature ensures that all money symbol prizes are paid out twice exactly when all possible reels contain money symbols.

You win 10, 15 or 50 free spins if you land 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols on reels 1 to 5 at the same time. The bonus round is always played on the expanded 6-reel grid, and you can retrigger the feature in the same way it was originally triggered.

The bonus round plays out in the same way as the base game and takes place on average every 167 spins. Players outside the UK can purchase the bonus round for 100 times the total bet. This gives you a slightly higher RTP of 96.48%. You are guaranteed at least 3 scatters on the next spin, and we should also mention that your chances of triggering the collect money feature are increased in the bonus round.

The highlights video starts with a few base game spins before we buy the bonus round. The feature plays for a little over 5 minutes after that, and we got some decent payouts. See for yourself by hitting the play button below.


Despite its somewhat dated and generic appearance, it’s hard to argue that Lucky Lightning is a boring game. Wild Streak Gaming has included so many different features in this version that it will take you a while to get used to it. The unpredictable nature of the base game keeps things tense and entertaining, at least if you enjoy the core money collecting feature.

Bigger wins are possible at all stages of the game, not least if you are lucky enough to win the top level jackpot. The bonus round also offers plenty of bells and whistles as more wilds are added to the reel strips. The maximum win is capped at 10,100 -times your bet, which is more than solid enough. We see a lot of standard hold & respin games every month, so kudos to Wild Streak for daring to do things a bit differently.
