All good things come with the number eight – high social status, strong intuition, success and fortune, according to the Chinese tradition. Silk manuscript scrolls represent five reels where different oriental symbols like dragons, green frogs and bamboo, assume their positions and every little detail is beautifully designed.

Before you decide to set the icons into motion take a minute to adjust coin values, them ranging from $0.02 to $0.10. Bet levels can be set between 1 and 5. These two parameters, and 30 active pay lines, will determine the wager. Good luck!

As you might have expected from a new slots machine, Great 88 can be played on all mobile devices, including Iphone, Android and so on.

The downside of this game, and that’s a big one, is the relatively low RTP of 94.3%. That can be considered ok in land based casinos, but when other BetSoft games offer RTP of above 97% (Good Girl Bad Girl, At the Copa, After Night Falls), 94% is a bit below what we’ve expected.

Great 88 Bonus Features

It’s a great Asian festivity when it comes to bonus features. The Wild symbol is represented by firecrackers and it replaces all other symbols except for Scatter Lucky Box icons. Three or more Lucky Boxes randomly trigger one of the five bonus features. The first one is called Top Symbols and consists of Scatters turning into high-payout lions and dragons.

The second feature is called Instant Wins where boxes show up to three bronze coins that can maximally multiply your win 15 times. The next feature of the lot is entitled Firecracker Wilds, which is an exploding Wilds feature, basically.  Then we have the Jade Free spins feature where you can win from 3 to 25 free plays.

And finally, there is the bonus Wheel feature where Lucky Box Scatters reveal bonus gold dumplings, each awarding you with a free spin at the wheel. You can get free spins, 20x multipliers and much more! If these are not enough, there’s even a Gamble feature in case you feel the need to double up your earnings.

Our Verdict

We know there are a lot Chinese-tradition-based slot machines out there and Great 88 slot is a solid addition to that list. BetSoft did a good job at designing it and really set the bar high with more than five different bonus features. The return to player rate is the only thing that stands against this slot. However, with medium to high variance levels you can still land some nice winnings.
