Great 88

Great 88 is one of BetSoft Gaming’s newest slot machines. Released in September 2016, this video slot is all about Chinese luck and culture. Expect to find a flurry of very popular, and somewhat predictable symbols on the reels of this game, including firecrackers, dragons, golden ingots, coins and much more.

Great 88 is very similar to other 3D slots developed by this company which also have an Oriental theme. For that reason alone, we can’t exactly dole out the gold stars to the developer for originality. One can only hope that the features make it stand out from those other similarly themed slots, then.

Developers

BetSoft Gaming is without a shadow of a doubt the leading developer of 3D slots. There is simply no other developer to match them for the quality of their graphics. If you are a big fan of 3D graphics in slots, then you’ll be mightily impressed with Great 88.

We’re more of the persuasion that each new slot must improve on those which came before it. We know that BetSoft is going to bring their 3D graphics to the table, and we’re psyched about it. However, again, can they deliver on originality?

How to play

Located below the colourful reels of this slot are a set of buttons. BetSoft Gaming haven’t exactly gone out of their way to develop a unique look and feel for those buttons. They are just kind of stuck in there. Those same buttons can see you choose coin values, betting levels, place maximum bets, double up, or check out the paytable.

Coin denominations range from a low of $0.02 up to $0.10 as is customary for a BetSoft slot, and you can wager up to 5 per payline. None of the 30 lines in this slot can be adjusted. In which case, you’re going to be wagering anything from a floor of $0.60 per spin, up to a ceiling of 15.00 per spin. That’s not too bad a wagering range, all things considered.

Features

Lucky Boxes: All of the special features in this video slot are doled out via Lucky Boxes. When 3 or more Lucky Boxes appear anywhere on the reels, players will pocket great rewards, which can include the following:

Top symbols: The best paying icons in this slot are hidden inside the Lucky Boxes. Revealing the dragon and lion symbols will unlock larger wins as you play in this slot.

Instant wins: Lucky Boxes may also contain between 1 and 3 bronze coins, and these symbols can offer you instant wins, which range from 3x up to 15x your total stake.

Firecracker wilds: Firecracker wild symbols may also be pulled out of Lucky Boxes. These symbols can then go off, and spread to 1 or 2 other symbols, turning those into wild icons, too.

Free spins bonus: If your chosen Lucky Boxes contain jade coins, then you will land a free spins bonus. Landing 1, 3 or 5 jade coins will determine how many free spins you win. It is possible to win between 3 and 25 free spins in total.

Bonus wheel: Lastly, a Lucky Box may contain golden dumplings. When they do, you will be taken to a bonus wheel. A quick spin on that could see you win 8 free spins, or 5x, 10x, or 20x your total stake. You could also win a spin on the Mega Win Wheel. This secondary wheel offers you the chance to win either the Mini Mega, Big Mega, or Giant Mega jackpots.

Maximum pay-outs

Even though there are 3 big jackpots to be won in the Mega Win Wheel bonus, they aren’t actually progressive jackpots. These Mini, Big, and Giant non-progressive jackpots include wins of 100x, 750x, and 6,000x your total bet,, respectively. In total, you could win as much as 4,500,000 coins in the Great 88 slot.

Summary

This new slot has already been launched, and should be available at all good casinos offering BetSoft Gaming software.

Even though Great 88 may look no different than other Chinese luck themed slots developed by this software provider, the special features take it above and beyond anything we’ve seen them from before. For those reasons alone, Great 88 is certainly a winner, and well worth a look.
