Horoscopes and zodiac signs are popular all over the world and so they have naturally found their way into online pokies. This article reviews and recommends three video pokies based on zodiac theme.
One of the earliest zodiac themed online pokies was from Microgaming and was titled Lucky Stars. The introductory clip shows stars connecting to form some of the signs of the zodiac. The online pokie uses some of the zodiac signs as symbols along with the playing card icons. The globe is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property and also awards the top line payout of 10,000 coins. The zodiac wheel activates the bonus feature. You are awarded 7 free spins at tripled payouts. But before you play the free spins, you spin the wheel for bonus credits.
Lucky Zodiac, also from Microgaming, is based on the Chinese zodiac system. The high paying symbols are thematic and include the game logo, zodiac animal of the year, lantern, fan, porcelain urn and blue lotus. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons. The Lucky Zodiac logo awards the top line payout of 3000 coins. Each year of the Chinese calendar is attributed to an animal. In a very sweet and innovative twist, the zodiac animal will automatically change at the Chinese New Year. The firecracker is the scatter symbol and triggers 12 free spins with a random multiplier up to 7 times. The zodiac animal becomes an additional wild during the free spins. The free spins can be retriggered.
Playtech offers a zodiac themed online pokie titled Zodiac Supernova developed by its subsidiary Virtue Fusion. Comically crafted zodiac signs appear as symbols on the reels, with Leo awarding the top line payout. There are no conventional bonus features in Zodiac Supernova online pokie, but the appropriately titled Exploding Reels feature makes up for their absence. After any spin the payouts are first awarded and then all symbols in the winning combinations explode like super novae and disappear. The empty spaces on the reels are filled by symbols from above. If new winning combinations are formed then you receive those payouts in the same spin. The process continues till no new winning combinations are formed.
The two Microgaming pokies are live at all Microgaming online casinos like Casino Mate and Royal Vegas. The Playtech zodiac themed pokie can be played at Playtech powered Australian online casinos like Mansion Casino and Omni Casino.
