Lucky Drink

In a Nutshell


What is it about those folks at Novomatic, the online slots arm of Austrian games manufacturer Novoline, and their love for the bottle?


As well as barfly-themed slot Lucky Haunter, they have produced the similarly-entitled Lucky Drink, to prolong the hangover a bit further. Lucky Drink is a 5-reel, 9-payline affair with some boozy icons (in a good way) on the reels, so read on and we’ll try to stay standing as we explain more..


A Closer Look


The reels on Lucky Drink together make up the essentials of any down-and-out’s life; a barman (naturally), crate of beer, some smoked fish, a drunk cat with a bottle, a whisky cask, a floozy, a trilby hat concealing some chicken bones,  a pint of foaming ale…and a candle (burning the midnight oil, remember) all vie for your attention.


There are no wilds on this game, and it is as straightforward as doing the straight-line walking test compared with other Novomatic slots.


Bonus Game Features


If you get 3 or more scatter symbols (the devil himself, appropriately) you’ll get the chance to accrue some more points by opening the barrels one by one, on the bonus screen.


Special Features


Lucky Drink also has the signature ‘gamble or collect’ feature which Novoline/Novomatic put on a lot of their games.


This is triggered every time you have a win in regular play, where you get the ‘take or risk’ option, which, if you take it, opens up a video poker type screen, where you can double your winning on the last spin if you beat the dealer’s card from one of the remaining 4.


You can continue to double up each time for as long as you like unless you either lose to the dealer or decide to claim your winnings. You then go back to the main screen.
