- A very basic slot with little going for it
- Only one Bonus which relies on the Wild symbols appearing regularly
- Looks bad, gets boring quickly and feels rushed
Lucky U slot from Playtech is a simple game offering you a chance to win some free spins and, depending on how many symbols triggered the Bonus, some extra rewards too. This isn’t an overly complicated game, but does that make it bad?
If we take a look at the design, the slot appears rather basic. There’s nothing going on in the background, no real theme and the graphics aren’t great either. It’s a bit disappointing and definitely doesn’t catch your eye. There are 5 reels here offering 3 rows and only 5 paylines, so nothing exciting here either. All you need to do to start playing is spin the reels to try and get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9, 10, Jack or Queen (lowest value)
- King or Ace
- Pyramid or Head
- Lion or Bull
- Heart (highest value)
Don’t worry though, because as well as these symbols, Lucky U slot also has a Star symbol which is used as a Wild. That means it substitutes for all of the above symbols in a winning combination. It appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4.

Lucky U Slot Bonuses and Features
Bonus. There’s only 1 Bonus in Lucky U slot and this is what it offers. You need to land 6 or more of the Horshoe symbols in the game in order to trigger it. Doing so will give you 5 free spins, and you’ll also be awarded the sum of the horseshoe symbols as a prize. Not only that, but the sum of them becomes the repeating win during your free spins, being added to any wins lines. There is more though. Every Wild symbol that appears during the Bonus will give you the repeating prize shown at the top of the reels, as well as an additional free spin. Note that unfortunately, you cannot retrigger the Bonus with more Horseshoe symbols.
Lucky U slot from Playtech is definitely a very basic game. It has all the essential components of a slot; some regular symbols, a Wild symbol to help you get some more wins, and a Bonus offering free spins and some extra rewards, but that’s it. No extra features to keep things interesting or offer you any more rewards. When a slot is so basic, it needs to be worth your time and that means making it profitable. So just how likely is this game to make you money? Well the RTP if fair at 96.05%, but the payouts from the slot aren’t that impressive and could be much higher in my opinion. The Bonus doesn’t trigger as often as I’d like, so most of the time you’re just watching the reels spin over and over with nothing happening. It’s a shame Playtech didn’t put more effort into this one as they’ve shown in the past they can create some good slots, but this one is probably not worth looking into. You can see some of their other slots here, however.
