Great 88 Slots

Great 88 is a 5-reel 30-payline online video slots game released in 2016 by Betsoft. The game is a new release from the Slot3 series and it is inspired by Chinese tradition according to which 8 is a lucky number. 

It’s no wonder all prizes revolve around this magic number in the graphically advanced video slot with a soothing Asian soundtrack. Not only that the game looks great, but it also offers great opportunities to win as it is loaded with bonus features. 

You can win instant prizes, extra Wilds, extra high value symbols, free spins and up to 1,000,000 coins in a single spin of the Bonus Wheel while the top fixed jackpot stands symbolically at 8,888 coins.

The Great 88 slot is played at 5 reels and 30 fixed paying lines. To adjust your bet you can choose from up to 5 bet levels and the coin denomination from R0.20 and R1, which means that the game is playable from R6 and you can wager up to R150 per spin. To set your reels in motion, you can press the spin button or activate up to 100 automatic spins. The reels set against the night landscape of a garden with a pond and lanterns are populated with symbols related to the theme of the game such as dragons, lions, frogs and amulets standing for high value symbols while the rest of the reels are covered by coins featuring 6s and 8s and other suitable items. To hit a win you have to land at least three of a kind consecutively on a winning line left to right.

Wild represented as a string of firecrackers replace all the symbols except for Scatter to help you create more winning combinations. Scatters are depicted as Lucky Boxes and you need at least three of them to trigger the feature. As soon as you hit three or more Lucky Boxes, you will reveal one of five bonus features at random. You can win extra dragons or lions which are added to your reels and can complete high value winning combinations. Another bonus feature is awarded by Bronze Coins which can deliver up to 15x your stake. You can win additional Firecracker Wilds too which will be added to your reels. Lucky Boxes can reveal up to 25 Jade Free Spins or Golden Dumplings which are your ticket to the Bonus Wheel. The Wheel can award 8 free spins with enhanced reels, up to 20x your total stake or a spin on the Mega Bonus Wheel with only 3 awards. If you are lucky enough, you can win 100x, 750x or unbelievable 6,000x stake. That’s how you can win over 1,000,000 coins in a single spin.

Although you have probably played many video slots inspired by Chinese tradition and the idea of prosperity and luck, Great 88 is something completely different due to its bonus features. You will be again and again surprised by all its options when it comes to bonus features which are highly entertaining and rewarding. Find your way through the beautiful garden and try hit some nice awards with enhanced reels, free spins and other innovative bonus features both at online and mobile casino offering Betsoft titles. Just as with their other releases, while playing Great 88 you will undoubtedly enjoy its rich graphics and sounds.
