Lucky numbers… We all have them. For a long time my lucky number was 13 but for some time now I firmly believe that I don’t have one or it might be 17,346,382,753 because I am not sure anymore when is going to be my turn to revolve things around into my advantage. I read about 8 being a lucky number in China, that it sounds similar to the word which means “wealth” or “prosper” but in some dialects it’s similar to the word “fortune”; there is also a visual similarity between “88” and “double happiness”. I didn’t need to know more; all I needed were seconds to log into my account at Grand Parker Casino and open the “Lucky Tiger” slot. It has 88 lines, the minimal bet is $0.88 and the whole slot is skillfully designed to attract as many players as possible. All I have to say about this slot is that 8 must be a happy number in Chinese culture but it’s not for me. I have to admit, I truly believed that this would going to be THE slot for me. I know, I know, I’m young… and naïve. Well, I’m still learning about these things.
Then I played “The Elf Wars”; a newer slot which has this fantastic animation and I hoped it is going to be a pleasure to play it. But mainly, it’s about Christmas and I really thought that Santa will come and bring me some presents because I’m sure I was a good boy this year. The game started the same way as the first part of my year; my balance was disappearing fast because of a countless number of empty spins and small wins which were smaller than my bet - $0.50. Some good spirits must have heard my cry in desperation and at one point everything changed. First I started having spin wins which were as high as or higher than my bet. Then I had some very decent wins between $5 and $10. All these little pleasures culminated when I triggered the Bonus Round. I won $57.50 and my balance went up to $64.68. I finished it with a blast and it was a very satisfying overture for the holiday season.
