Presuming you want to know more about the game than just its RTP and the fact that it’s colourful, our in-depth review will give you an idea of the sort of game you’ll experience if you decide to play it.
In terms of special features, Lucky Ladies 88 only really has one of any note. There aren’t even any Wilds to look out for, so if bonus games matter to you then you’re likely to be slightly disappointed.
The Bingo Bonus game will be triggered if you see a Bingo Machine symbol landing on the first reel of one of your active pay lines. What happens next is that a new window will open and you’ll be presented with your bingo ticket. You’ll then ‘play’ a 20-ball version of bingo, during which time you’ll be hoping to get 1 Line, 2 Lines or a Full House.
The number of times you’ll get to play the Bingo Bonus game will depend on how many lines you’ve played, with one line resulting in one go and nine lines giving you three goes. If you ‘win’ the bingo then you’ll receive a multiplier amount that is determined by the size of you stake.
Two Fat Ladies 88 Progressive Jackpot
The progressive jackpot on the Lucky Ladies 88 game is triggered by landing five Two Fat Ladies 88 symbols on active pay lines. There’s no game to play within the jackpot, as such, you’re just awarded an amount of it that’s dictated by the size of your stake. If you opt for the full stake amount of £5, for example, then you’ll get the entire amount of the jackpot. The amount you’ll win then decreases in segments down to just 2% of it if you’ve staked 10p per line.
Gameplay & RTP
Looking at the theming of the game first and foremost, Lucky Ladies 88 is at least consistent with how the game looks throughout. It’s bright, fun and entertaining from the word go, including the arrive of the Lucky Ladies themselves when you first load up the game. Looking a bit like John Travolta’s character Edna from the musical Hairspray, you’ll meet ladies that have a dabber in their hand and look like they’re ready to head straight to their nearest bingo hall. Head into the game proper and you’ll see that bingo theme is continued, with the pay lines indicated by bingo balls that run alongside the reels. There’s fireworks at the top to indicate the ‘luck’ element of the game, whilst the symbols are made up of typical bingo callee cliches. We’re talking Two Snakes 55, Heaven’s Gate number 8, Two Little Ducks 22 and so on.
The Bingo Bonus Game is also perfectly in keeping with the rest of the theme, with the bingo ticket and the bingo machine providing you with ample opportunity to keep enjoying your much-loved game even within the side game. It’s meta times two. The reels spin smoothly enough and the bright, glitzy nature of the game will definitely please some people. Ultimately, though, the lack of interesting games and things to keep you engaged might well do for it. It’s all well and good looking colourful and running smoothly, but if there aren’t any games other than the standard spinning of the reels and a small side one to keep you coming back then there’s a strong chance that you will look elsewhere for your entertainment.
In terms of reasons to come back, the Return To Player percentage of 93% is unlikely to win you over. It’s not terrible, sitting just 1% less than a good number of games on the Virtue Fusion network, but by the same token it’s nowhere near as good as the 98% you’ll be able to find on some of the best paying games. It’s silly to constantly allow a game’s RTP to dictate whether you play it or not, with the most fun games being the ones that you’ll head back to play more often as long as the Return To Player amount isn’t so low as to be silly. Yet the combination of a mediocre RTP and a game that relies more on graphics and colours than exciting gameplay means that this is unlikely to be one that you rush to play. That’s especially true if you’re the sort of player that likes to shop around to find a game that ticks all your boxes.
