Like many casino software providers, Real Time Gaming (RTG) decided to celebrate Chinese New Year in 2020 by unveiling a new slot themed on the Far East. Lucky Rat is the outcome of that decision, and it is a decent slot as far as RTG developed games go. Most Real Time Gaming slots tend to be drab and dull affairs, so it is a pleasant surprise to see a bit of action in this Chinese luck-themed slots. Ultimately, what players are looking at is a 5-reel, 720 ways to win game. A word of warning, though, it is costly. A minimum stake on this game is going to set you back at least 2.50 per spin. Maximum bets can rise to 250.00 a game. On the upside, you do get value for money in terms of non-progressive jackpot prizes, with these capped at 330,000 coins in all. Players should also note that Lucky Rat has an RTP rate of 95.7% and is a low variance effort, which is difficult to find lately.
Much of the imagery which appears on the reels of this release will be immediately familiar to players who have tried their hand at Asian-themed slots before. One which is worth looking at in particular is the Lucky Rat stature. This gold icon is a wild symbol, and it can substitute for all save for firecracker scatters and coin symbols.
When enough coin symbols appear on the reels, players can expect to pocket an instant win cash prize. This could be worth as much as 50x the total bet wagered, so that is not to be missed if the opportunity knocks.
Free spins are triggered via scatters, which take the shape of firecrackers. You’re going to need to land at least three such symbols on the reels to begin the bonus round in the first place.
To get the ball rolling, Lucky Rat can deliver a total of 8 free spins to players. However, as many as 240 in total could be won, if you were able to retrigger the round by landing additional firecracker scatters on the reels. During the bonus round, players can land firecracker scatters in certain combinations (based on where they land) and this determines the number of additional spins paid out. It is the only thing which is really original and unique in this Chinese luck-themed slot.
