Lucky Twins slot from Microgaming

Lucky Twins slot from Microgaming
Who doesn’t want to get lucky with twins? No, nothing to do with indecent proposals! The 2015 Lucky Twins slot machine is just another decent Asian-themed slot by Microgaming, offering you all the Chinese good luck charms you can think of. The lucky twins are two Chinese kids carrying a plate with 10 golden ingots, seemingly ready to hand them over to you. Other symbols in the game include Lucky Coins, Firecrackers, and Kittens, all exuding good fortune. There are no Free Spins or any other bonus rounds, but don’t fret about it; with an RTP of 96.94%, there has to be compensation one way or another (in a long-distance). The twin action takes place on a standard 5x3 playing field, crossed by just 9 lines, which are two reasons why this slot could be suitable for starters in the online gaming world.

Take a deep breath, have faith in the Chinese lucky attributes, and keep your fingers crossed as you spin the reels of the Lucky Twins slot machine.

Personal testers’ opinion

The Lucky Twins slot machine is one of those that doesn’t leave a big impression unless you win a lot (which we didn’t). It’s too generic to be memorable, and we did miss the Free Spins or any other kind of bonus function.

It is, in fact, yet another reskin of a bunch of other Microgaming’s games: Big Top slot - 2010, Carnaval slot - 2015, to name a couple. Just inexplicably, many sites register this as a High Volatility game. At the same time, the previous versions, with the same paytable, bet range, RTP, math model, and gameplay, were announced as Low Volatility games. 5000 coins for 5OAK logo symbols - holding the top value is translating as 555x the total bet. That is immediately the highest outlook of the slot. It will not get larger, as there are no multipliers or lucrative features or rabbits to be pulled out of the Lucky Twins sleeve.

Microgaming is starting to lose our trust: reskins, clones, mirror games, often weak paytables, not good winning prospects, not a large bet range. And that in addition to lack of original themes, design, and noteworthy functionality. The absence of new stunning releases in this business is a recipe for failure or, at best, mediocrity.

In the Lucky Twins slot machine, the symbols of the higher half of the paytable pay even for 2OAK, plus there is a decent hit frequency (around 25%). That is it. We had to think hard to derive anything positive at all here. Regardless of the generous RTP announced ( theoretical number, now we see), the game generates insufficient winnings (by anybody’s standard) - only 30x - 40x the total bet, making it even less desirable to be played.

Our concluding evaluation of the game - yet another mishap in the Microgaming portfolio.
