Released in 2016, the five-reel slot with thirty fixed paylines will take you on a journey back in time, to the Far East, in the old imperial China, where number 8 was, and still is considered the luckiest number, since when pronounced it sounds like the Chinese word for happiness or wealth.
Play Great 88
In front of you is a beautiful Chinese countryside setting from couple of centuries ago, surrounded by wild oriental landscape, lit lanterns and trees in blossom. Aside from standard game, there are several rewarding features: Top Symbols, Instant Wins, Firecracker Wilds and Free Spins and the most lucrative, Bonus Wheels. Firecracker is the Wild icon, replacing all standard symbols, except the Lucky Boxes symbol that acts as the game’s Scatter icon.
How to Play
Before you start playing, you must choose coin value and bet level, but as mentioned earlier, the number of paylines is fixed. Bet level can raise your bet up to 5 times, while Max bet places the maximum available wager. The Autoplay feature offers the option to select coin value and bet level, as well as the number of automatically played spins.
Coin denomination starts at $0.02 and goes all the way to $0.10 per payline. Betting starts at $30 per spin, and goes up to $150.
3 of a kind is minimum for landing payouts, but the possibility of a hefty payout increases due to very special symbol of Lucky Boxes, which offers a wide array
Strategy & Tips
Lucky Boxes offer large awards when 3 or more are landed on the reels, which activates Firecracker Wilds, spreading to 1 or 2 other symbols, turning them to Wilds.
Hidden in Lucky Boxes are Bronze Coins, which give the chance for Instant Win and if revealed, they act as multipliers, increasing your total wager from 3 to 15 times. Top Symbols are activated when one of the top paying symbols, Lion or Dragon, is opened inside a Lucky Box.
Bonus features activated by Jade Coins, which are also hidden inside Lucky Boxes, triggering from 3 to 25 Free Spins. Unfortunately, Free Spins can not be retriggered, since Lucky Boxes do not appear during this feature.
Also hidden in Lucky Boxes is Golden Dumpling and each awards a Bonus Wheel spin, giving you the opportunity to win up 20x the total wager and spin the Mega Win Wheel and enlarge your win up to 6000x the total wager.
Mobile version is available on Android and iOS devices and brings the same level of graphic and audio quality found on desktop, to smartphones and tablets, which allows the player to immensely enjoy this 2016 title on the go.
Another feature worth mentioning is the Double Up option allows you to gamble your payout after every standard win, but is not available when Lucky Boxes are landed.
