A low risk game that promises lots of wins, but can this Lucky Links mobile slot actually deliver?
There’s not much here not to love; re-spins, locked reels, win both ways, 20 paylines… it’s a good combo of features.
The theme, granted, is a little simplistic, relying on your love of lucky symbols and smooth jazz to appreciate every spin.
Yet, we found ourselves struggling to play more than a few spins on this Just for the Win slot, and here’s why.
That’s already a recipe we love.
And when you get wins paying from left to right and right to left, the next best thing you can add is more of the same symbols bunched together.
And overall, you get them, but the symbols themselves don’t pay out a lot, even on a 5 of a kind win, so you need to get all 5 reels covered to get the heart truly racing – and that’s the job of the bonus round.
One symbol will be chosen before each spin, so if they land, they will lock into place with other of the same symbols next to them.
You’ll then get multiple re-spins where every one of those same symbol will keep locking into place until no more show up.
It’s a little like the sticky wins in games like Moby Dick slot and Mayana by Quickspin.
And that’s what we were asking ourselves as we were spinning.
Technically, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this Lucky Links slot. You don’t win huge, but then you don’t lose much either, it’s a nice easy going slot for when you need to stretch that budget. And with a minimum bet of 0.10 per spin you can stretch it quite far.
Maybe it’s the fact that the music and lights just didn’t bring the energy we needed to make the linking exciting.
Instead it felt like the main feature was a little bit of an afterthought, rather than the cherry on top of what should have been a great mobile phone slot.

Win Both Ways: These reels will pay from left to right, and right to left, much like casino games such as the always brilliant Starburst and the less well known, but brilliant, Legend of the White Snake Lady.
Lucky Links Features: The Lucky Links feature will add stacks of linking symbols that will lock in place. You'll then keep getting re-spins of all the rest of the reels, until no more of that symbol shows up.
Stacked Symbols: All the symbols on the reels can come stacked several symbols high on all reels.
With stacked symbols and win both ways reels, this should be a slam dunk for Just For The Wins, but the Lucky Links online slot doesn't quite hit full marks.
It's still a very playable low risk slot, that offers lots of little wins, and every so often, the chance to win over 350 times your bet.
It also has a huge betting range, from 0.10 to 250 a spin, by far one of the most varied we've seen in a while.
But there's not denying that it rarely makes your heart race, even as the sticky wins build up, there is little anticipation.
Personally we prefer Just For The Wins Goldwyn's Fairies with it's far more imaginative theme.
