If you want to get lucky in this Lucky Links slot, you don’t actually need to do much at all, just start spinning.

In fact, this low volatility online slot is erring towards the “just spin and you will win” side…but that does not mean that you’ll win much, or that it’s not fun to play.

Imagine something really, incredibly boring.

Like any food that does not have maple syrup drizzled all over it. Got it? Yeah, well, the theme of this Just for the Win Lucky Links game is a lot more boring than that.

The theme is bland, but the jazz makes up for it

It is bland. It is your bog-standard fruit machine with a couple of the symbols switched out for symbols than an intern likely designed when they couldn’t find anything else for them to do.

So, an acorn. No idea why there is an acorn, but there is an acorn. At least the four-leaf clover makes a little more sense, even if it’s not wholly original.

If we have one thing that we love about the theme of Lucky Links, it is the music that plays in the background as you spin the reels.

The smooth jazz is beautiful, and you will clearly want to stick around and listen to it. It makes it a little bit more fun to play.

Lucky Links is a win both ways slot with 20 paylines and 5 reels

Part of the reason as to why it is so simple to win on Lucky Links is down to the ‘win both ways’ feature.

The game pays out both left to right and right to left. This makes it simple to score wins, and usually, you find it only in 10 payline games like Kawaii Kitty slot by Betsoft or the excellent Toki Time slot by Thunderkick.

In fact, the wins will start to stack up pretty quickly. They are rarely going to be that high, but they are going to come frequently and that is always great.

In fact, it is probably this feature alone which has managed to keep so many people spinning the reels in this Lucky Links video slot.

How the slot symbols link up to create wins:

When you spin the reels, you will probably notice that certain symbols on the reels have little links on them. If you get multiple linked symbols touching, then this bonus feature will trigger.

The symbols will lock into place and you will get free re-spins. The re-spins continue until you get no more symbols locking into place on the reels. How cool is that?

Well… turns out…not very cool at all.

Because the problem with the Lucky Links slot feature is that it happens too often. Yes, this is a genuine complaint.

Hard to get excited when you know you won’t win much

When you play a slot machine, you normally want there to be some sort of thrill or special symbol you look for on any one spin.

You want there to be a possibility of maybe hitting a bit feature or a big 5 of a kind win.

You don’t always want there to be a linking feature on every spin (it is not on every spin, but it is near enough), and the problem is that the feature is so mediocre that there is no real excitement after about the 10th time it happens.

You will probably just let out a little cheer (the first few times), knowing that for a couple of spins you won’t need to pay a penny…but you will barely earn a penny either.

Is the Lucky Links slot online worth playing?

Just For The Wins studios, the creator of this game made exclusively for Microgaming, have the potential to create great games, but this isn’t it.

Maybe make this a medium to high volatility game. Cut back on how often the main feature of the game triggers, and add wild symbols into the mix. This game could have been an instant hit.

As it is now, Lucky Links is really going to struggle to stand out from the crowd.

There are other games out there which do things better…much better and that’s the problem. It’s not a bad slot, but it’s not a standout casino slot either.

Maybe use Spotify for those relaxing jazz tunes if you want, and if need be check out the Temple of Tut slot by the same provider which is just a lot more fun.
