We love it when the big casino game studios fight it out to get our attention.

Usually, it’s times like Christmas, Easter, and the big Summer blockbusters that get all the attention, with everyone wondering if NetEnt Jumanji slot or Microgaming’s Playboy slot will take the crown.

But sometimes, smaller battles happen which go unnoticed and we like to shine a little light on them.

Because everyone thinks that Microgaming’s Lucky Little Gods slot will get all the attention this Chinese New Year, but they’ve not won yet – certainly not if Pragmatic Play has anything to say.

Let’s meet Goliath: Lucky Little Gods by Microgaming

And, as usual, we have a video to show you all that this excellent looking game has to offer.

And don’t get us wrong; we are only calling Microgaming Goliath because they are huge, not because we think they should be defeated.

Because let’s be honest, Microgaming slot games aren’t all fantastic, but they are usually very playable. Some, like Thunderstruck II and Agent Jane Blonde, are now iconic.

So can Lucky Little Gods get all your attention come Chinese New Year on the 16th of February?

What we know about Lucky Little Gods (out Feb 1st)

  • 5 reels with 243 ways to win
  • Min/max bet: 0.30 to 300
  • 8 to 10 Free Spins with wild reels 1 and 5
  • Golden Tree click me bonus pays out up to 40x your bet
  • Max win of 433 times your bet per spin
  • Random Cash wins with the Lucky Little God
  • Golden Pot click me bonus pays out up to 100 times your bet
  • Medium variance slot machine

So to recap, that 3 instant cash wins games and one free spins bonus where you get wild reels on every spin, all with a kick-ass Kawaii theme that is super cute.

Bet many of you are thinking that Pragmatic Play should just give up now and lay dead, like a good doggy.

Here comes David: Lucky New Year slot by Pragmatic Play

No video, but we’ve got some images for you, and you can also free play the game over at Pragmatic play site (until it comes out on February 14th).

Now the look of it is pretty generic, we will give you that, but Pragmatic Play aren’t known for their brilliant ideas, just their brilliant slots.

And we have a feeling that the Lucky New Year game will celebrate the year of the dog in all the right ways.

What we know about Lucky New Year on mobile:

  • 5 reels with 25 paylines
  • Min / max bet: 0.25 / 125
  • Wilds and scatter symbols
  • 5 Free Spins with Mega Symbols bonus game
  • 3 jackpots that change according to bet size
  • Medium variance slot

Already you can see this is a very different slot game from Lucky Little Gods, with much simpler mechanics and bigger prizes up for grabs.

The grand jackpot sits at around 1,000 times your bet when you play £€$1, more if you up your bet or coin size.

And it has the advantage that we already know we are going to love it, seeing as this is the sister to the Wolf Gold slot.

Which will be the Chinese New Year slot to play?

Until we get to play, it actually really hard to make a judgement call on that, but that’s what we are going to do.

The Lucky New Year slot game has a clear advantage in that we’ve got a game we can play to compare it to.

Lucky Little Gods, on the other hands, looks great, with a Fortune Girl slot feel to it, but could just be another Microgaming machine that will soon be lost in the noise.

Will David win this one?

Pragmatic Play has really impressed us in the last year; in fact, they got our rising star award as the most promising software of 2018.

There’s no doubt that Microgaming’s Lucky Little God looks much prettier, set high in a cloud kingdom where cutes deities bring you fortunes and smiles.

The best you can say about the Pragmatic slot theme is that you get the pretty fireworks in the background, bringing some festive cheer to a very generic slot.

But we loved Wolf Gold, and we loved the in-game jackpots that, unlike progressive’s, don’t take any of your hard earned cash or lower the slot machine RTP.

Add those Mega symbols during the free spins, that fully land to cover three reels, and that has to beat the 3 reels of the new Microgaming slot game… right?

Goliath is the more impressive opponent

We loved Wolf Gold, and if you do only one thing today, is you should head to somewhere like the Guts tablet casino and play it.

But…  God damn it if Microgaming don’t know how to make a new phone slot intriguing.

And despite you can clearly win more in Lucky New Year, that’s only because of the jackpots. Both games are around the mid variance volatility, meaning the pays should be pretty balanced.

Which, for Microgaming, still means giving you some blazing wins and so many bonus features, you’ll have a very fortuitous good year.

Our advice? Go play at Vera & John Casino, which hosts both software providers and a generous welcome bonus.

Because you might as well have a little freebie whilst you decide which game is best.
