Lucky News Network Slots

Lucky-News-NetworkApparently inspired by the famous CNN, Lucky News Network (LNN for short) is a slot machine that shows off a TV station’s employees, from the camera man, to the doctor that’s giving health advice, the girl that’s telling you about upcoming movies, or the man that covers the sports section. There aren’t that many slots that deal with news stations, and this one seems quite well made, so I was glad to give it a try. Read on to find out how it fared.

LNN offers 5 reels and 20 bet lines on them. Among the features, there are the scatters and wilds, with the Bonus Bulletin feature being most important, as it brings you either cash prizes or free spins with multipliers of up to 5x. You can win a maximum of $10,000 by playing this slot.

Features of Lucky News Network

While the wild symbol is rather simple, the scatter symbol brings a complex bonus feature with it, which can result in prizes, free spins and multipliers.

The Lucky News Network Logo serves as the slot’s wild symbol, which is special because it can act as a substitute for another icon. The substitution occurs only when the wild’s position is exactly where another regular symbol would be needed, and if that’s the case then the wild takes that role and the combination forms, bringing with it a new prize for you. The wild doesn’t just help others award prizes, it also offers some of its own, if you manage to land multiple Logos on the same active line. The jackpot is actually offered with the help of five wilds, arranged on the same line.


On the scatter symbol you will see the words Bonus Bulletin written, and that’s the name of the feature that it can trigger as well. Before the bonus feature starts though, you will find that the symbol gives cash prizes first, which take into account two things, the number of triggering scatters and the bet you’ve placed that round. For 3 to 5 Bonus Bulletin symbols, anywhere on the reels, you get 5x to 50x the bet value as a prize.

Bonus Bulletin

The bonus game that starts up only needs two scattered Bonus Bulletin Logos to be present, but they have to be on certain reels. The 1st and the 5th reels are the ones that need this particular symbol in place at the same time, in order for the feature to begin.


There are two types of prizes that you can get from Bonus Bulletin, cash prizes or free spins with multipliers. The feature starts with a screen that has 15 symbols on the reels. You pick one of those 15 possibilities, and you get your mystery prize.


If you receive free spins, you can get up to 20 of these rounds for free, with multipliers that reach a maximum of 5x. That’s up to five times more than what the base game will offer you, so it’s a good deal.


If you get a cash prize, then you can take home a bonus payout of up to 157 times the total bet of that last round.


Betting options and jackpots

The game’s paylines accept bets of $0.01 to $5 when they are activated, but you can use only some of them if you want to. The line wagers are made out of 20 coins or less, with denominations ranging from $0.01 to $0.25. The maximum bet of the game is $100, using 400 coins.

You win up to 2,000x the line bet, which is not that impressive to be honest. It means a top prize of 40,000 coins, or $10,000.

Design and symbols

With plenty of details included in each symbol, with cheerful news anchors and TV employees that seem to enjoy their jobs, and with a high quality for the individual drawings, you will find yourself liking this game quite easily. It’s got only themed symbols inside, another big plus in its favor.


Symbols: LNN Logo (wild, 2,000x), Bonus Bulletin Logo (scatter, 50x bet), Male Newscaster (1,000x), Female Newscaster (600x), Weather Man (500x), Traffic Report (400x), Movies Report (300x), Sports Reporter (90x), Money Tips (80x), Health Report (70x), Camera Man (60x) and TV Van (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Leaving aside the rather disappointing top payout, the game does well enough when it comes to the design and the list of features which were used in it. Overall, I’ve enjoyed playing it, and you will probably feel the same way.

Lucky News Network can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
