Lucky Shot SlotLucky Shot is an amusing golf-themed video slot by Microgaming which is played over 5 reels and 20 adjustable paylines. It can be played with up to 10 coins per line and players can choose a coin denomination from 0.01 to 0.50 credits in the currency they use. The maximum bet reaches 200 coins, or 100.00 credits, but those who are on a budget can wager as low as 0.01 credits per spin.

As a leading developer of online casino software, Microgaming offers an impressive diversity of slot genres and themes. Lucky Shot combines two extremely relaxing, yet very serious and potentially profitable pastimes such as golf and slots into one entertaining, lucrative video slot game. It features cartoon-like golfers, plenty of golf-related accessories, and a funny gopher character who probably secretly lives in holes and tunnels under the golf course. The standard 5×3 reel grid is set in the middle of this green golf course, the design is very beautiful, and the soundtrack is very lively.

This is a colorful, light-hearted video slot with a really positive atmosphere. However, it is not available for practice play and punters need a real-money account at their preferred casino in order to play.

Special Symbols

The slot has various golf-themed symbols such as a ball washer, a golf bag, a golf club hitting a ball, as well as several golfers – male and female, old and young. The trophy and the Lucky Shot logo are the highest paying symbols, bringing prizes of up to 2,000 and 15,000 coins, respectively. Interestingly, this Microgaming release does not features a Wild icon. At first, slot players may find the lack of a Wild frustrating but it to balance it out, developers have added two Scatters.

The first Scatter symbol is represented as a gold cart which, unlike typical Scatters appearing anywhere on the reels, pays whenever three or more carts land on adjacent reels. The maximum payout for 5 carts on adjacent reels is 50x the total bet. In addition to the Scatter payout, players receive either 9 or 18 free spins.

The game features another Scatter symbol that triggers a second bonus feature. Surprisingly, this is the cartoonish gopher. Depending on the number of gophers landing on adjacent reels, players can win up to 50x the total bet. The gopher symbol also triggers the Gopher Bonus Game.

Bonus Games and Features

The two Scatter icons in the game activate two different bonus features. The first one is triggered whenever 3, 4, or 5 cart symbols fall on adjacent reels and players receive randomly either 9 or 18 free spins. These free rounds come with a 2x multiplier and the payouts for cart and gopher icons are different than they are in the base game. Players who get 3 matching Scatters during the free spins will receive winnings worth 10x the total bet; 4 Scatters will earn them 50x the total bet; and 5 Scatters bring 200x the total bet.

The second bonus feature is the Gopher Bonus Game which activates after 3 or more gopher symbols land on any position but on adjacent reels. When this happens, players are immediately awarded the corresponding gopher payout and then, the reels are replaced with a second screen. An animated game starts and 15 gophers hold 15 targets. Players need to pick a certain number of targets, depending on the number of Scatters that triggered the feature. When the golfer hit the targets, they will reveal different cash prizes. The maximum prize in this bonus game is worth 300x the total bet.


With its lovely imagery, great soundtrack and outdoor setting, Microgaming’s Lucky Shot slot should appeal to every golf fan, even on a rainy day. The game creates an amazing, positive atmosphere while the cartoon-style graphics are really adorable.

Of course, the golf theme and the colorful appearance are certainly not the only great things about this video slot. It offers two Scatter symbols, each triggering its own bonus feature. Both the free spins and the pick-and-win style game offer decent winnings, although they are nothing extraordinary really. The lack of a Wild icon will not be warmly welcomed by most players because forming combinations will not be as easy.

Still, Lucky Shot is a very entertaining slot game which offers decent returns over time. For those who strike it lucky, the bonus game and the free spins may turn out to be extremely generous. So, this video slot is worth a try, whether you are golf fan or not.
