How to Win on Astral Luck

Instead of a mix of characters and playing card symbols, this slot uses the pictorial representation of the famous constellations on the reels. If you know your astrology, you might know these by heart – though I only recognized a couple.

The best paying symbol is the arrow of Sagittarius, which is worth a big 7500 coins for 5 on a line, 500 coins for 4, 80 for 3 and 8 coins for just 2. This is the only symbol which pays for just 2 on a line, all of the others requiring a minimum of 3 from the left hand side.

Next comes a red ‘m’ representing Scorpio, which is worth 1000 coins for 5. Libra, Virgo and Leo follow at 750, 300 and 200 coins for 5 of each. The other signs acting as regular winning symbols are Cancer, Gemini, Taurus and Aries.

If your sign has not yet appeared in the list, then this will be one of the special symbols instead – there are 3 of these in total.

First the Aquarius sign is an expanding wild. This only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. When it does appear there is an attractive animation while the entire reel becomes wild. This can often trigger multiple wins. If there are no wins possible, then the animation will not happen.

A bright blue Capricorn Symbol is responsible for triggering the free spins bonus round. The number of spins you receive depends on how many Capricorn symbols appear anywhere on the reels. 3 will get you 5 free spins, 4 is good for 10 free spins and the full 5 gets you 20 free spins. There is nothing particularly different about the free spins game – though any wins that you hit during this will be multiplied by 3.

The final symbol is Pisces; this triggers the break out bonus game when you hit 3 or more on the screen. That bonus takes you to an amazing looking screen, dominated by the red planet Mars. You will see two consecutive rings of the astrological symbols, with an arrow at the top of the screen showing a box where two can land. You get to spin the wheels 3 times, each time the symbols landing in the box will trigger payouts based on the special pay tables at either side of the screen.

Setup for Astral Luck

Behind the amazing graphics and unique game play you’ll find a standard 5 reel video slot game with 3 rows of symbols on each of the reels. There are 50 win-lines by default, though you are free to lower this number if you prefer. With expanding wilds I like to ensure that the maximum lines are in play, and so stick to all 50. As with all Rival Gaming slots, you also get to choose your coin size between 1c and 25c, and the number of coins you play per line (up to 10). There are also handy ‘Bet Max’ and ‘Autoplay’ options available.

In the background of this game you will hear an atmospheric sci-fi type noise which ebbs and flows. This does contrast with the more lively beeps when you spin, and ‘ding’ sounds for wins. The main effects are visual, and these are excellent. The reels are set within a circle, with the concentric rings of astrological charts and the planet Mars visible behind the symbols. Those symbols are vivid colors, and have the star map of their constellation in the background.

Wild symbols trigger a nice animation, where a reel fills up with stars before going wild – though the best animation is reserved for the break out bonus game with the astrological charts.


Overall Experience with Astral Luck

This is a beautifully produced slot and the best one I have played which covers this particular theme. I recommend that you take it for a spin – if only to see the excellent visuals for yourself. Once you add in the potential for big wins via the 3x free spins round and break out bonus – you have a slot which is good enough to play whatever it says in your horoscope!
