Birds playing the role of humans is a concept that Microgaming brings in every now and then. It has done so in the online pokie Lucky Eggsplorer with comic effect. What makes Lucky Eggsplorer different from the rest is the discovery theme that reaches out to the indigenous people across the globe.
The leader of the voyage of discovery is Captain Chook, the comical rooster. The allusion to Captain Cook is intentional. Chook is the wild symbol and it also awards the highest line payouts. Five Chook symbols on an active payline pay 6,000 times the line bet. In the win animations Captain Chook sights land through his telescope. Another high paying symbol is his ship the Endfeather, which is a play on Captain Cook’s ship the Endeavour. You also have the ship’s wheel, rooster and hula dancer as high paying symbols. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons.
The map is the scatter symbol, which awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. Three or more map symbols landing anywhere on the reels trigger the bonus feature. You will first be taken to a second screen that displays the map of the world. Five birds from Africa, Australia, Asia, Pacific and South America are shown in ethnic indigenous costumes. You have to choose three of these birds. Each pick awards either random bonus credits or a number of free spins. The bonuses immediately get credited to your account. Five free spins are added to the free spins won and then played out. During the free spins feature all the payouts are multiplied three times. Microgaming changes the background for the free spins feature and this is pronounced in Lucky Eggsplorer online pokie. The background changes from a day scene to an evening scene. The sky turns orange and the stars come out. Unfortunately, this exciting bonus game cannot be retriggered.
Lucky Eggsplorer is a video pokie in the standard 5×3 structure. It has 30 selectable paylines, but you are advised to play with all paylines activated. You can wager up to 10 coins per payline. The coin denomination varies between AU$0.01 and AU$0.25. This leads to a maximum line bet of AU$2.50 and max total bet of AU$75.00. High roller players will be interested at the upper range. Lucky Eggsplorer can be played at all Microgaming powered Australian online casinos. Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and All Slots are some of the casinos recommended.
