Legacy certainly looks like a rich man’s game, with its swanky and fancy logos and very stylish setup and layout. Legacy does have a cracking jackpot, that is worth some $60,000 in real money (with the maximum wager set, of course), and its maximum wager has somewhat skyrocketed as opposed to other Microgaming slots. In short, all the signs point to a conclusion that Legacy is a high rollers classic slot machine, designed for the wealthy or those that don’t mind spending a little bit more than most when playing online slots.
How to play Legacy slots online
Wagers aren’t cheap in Legacy, certainly not in comparison with other Microgaming classic titles. As a classic slot, this one does offer 3 reels, and an extended set of paylines, with 5 in total to play on. However, coin denominations range from $1 up to $25, and even with a single coin per line stake, the minimum wager is still $1 and the maximum stake blasts up to a costly $125 per spin.
For your money, you are greeted with the same old classic slot icons you might expect. Single bars, double bar and triple bars are all elegantly designed in the same swank, style and sophistication as the remainder of the slot and the highest paying symbol is the glitzy looking 7 symbol. Keep an eye out of the L icon (for Legacy), as this is a special icon in the slot.
Legacy Slot Bonus Features
Microgaming has already decided to make this classic slot have 5 paylines, so why stop there? The casino software developers have bumped up the desirability of the slot, by including a wild and multiplier icon, which is of course, the L icon. This wild icon is not only a substitute symbol, but will also offer a 2x winning combination multiplier, or a 4x winning combination multiplier, when 1 or 2 wilds are used to complete a winning payline, respectively.
Legacy slot Payouts
The lowest acceptable combination to receive a payout in this classic slot is the any bars combination. 3 of any bar on a payline will offer the player 5 coins for their efforts. Matching 3 single bar icons on a payline will see the player bags 10 coins, whilst 40 coins and 80 coins are available for combinations that feature 3 double bar icons, and 3 triple bar icons respectively. If the player lines up three 7s on a payline, they will win the highest standard payout of 160 coins.
The Legacy jackpot
The jackpot can be won when a player lines up 3 L icons on a payline, but there are 5 different sums at stake, with each of the 5 paylines determining how much of a jackpot you will win. Line up the 3 wilds on the central payline and you’ll win 1,000 coins, but do it on the top or bottom payline and you’ll pick up 1,200 or 1,400 coins, respectively. Finally, if you land the 3 wilds on the fourth payline (diagonally from top right to bottom left), you’ll win 1,600 coins, and the top jackpot of 2,400 coins is reserved for the fifth payline, which runs from the bottom left to the top right, diagonally.
Other notes on Legacy
To say that Legacy is a high rollers slot, and that it has arguably the most expensive maximum wagers of all of Microgaming’s 3 reel classic slot releases, the top jackpot of $60,000 in real money, doesn’t quite add up to some other slots. What I mean by this is that there are other slots with only $25 maximum stakes and larger jackpots. Granted though, these don’t have extra features or additional paylines, so you do stand a better chance of winning when you play Legacy, albeit at a higher cost per spin.
