Lucky Beans Slots

Lucky-BeansThe story behind Lucky Beans is one that a number of other developers have approached already, the idea of the magic beans appearing to be quite popular. It’s the story of Jack and the beanstalk that is told here, about a boy that trades a cow in exchange for a couple of magic beans, and once water touches them they grow so big that they reach the kingdom of the giants, which is high in the sky, among the clouds. It’s a game which luckily is about treasures as well, and which covers a story that many of us grew up with. The developer that created this game is called WGS.

Lucky Beans gets 30 bet lines and the standard 5 reels on which they can form. Free spins, bonus games, scatter symbols and wilds (both regular and expanding) are part of the feature list. The top prizes mentioned here would offer you $75,000.

Features of Lucky Beans

The game does quite well feature wise, offering wild symbols, scatters, bonus games and free spins. You get pretty much all you could ask for from a normal slot machine.


Jack is the one that’s used for the best paying symbol of the slot, which just happens to be the wild at the same time. Landing wild symbols on paylines where regular matching symbols are in place, will potentially bring you new winning combinations, since a wild has the ability to take the same role as another symbol. Wilds also form their own winning combinations, if you get two to five such icons on the same line and arranged from the left to the right. You can win up to 5,000x if this happens.

Another feature is the one called Vertical Wild. At the end of each paid spin, there is a chance that a vertical wild reel can be awarded at random, on the 1st and 3rd reels. Though it’s called a Vertical Wild, it’s actually a regular expanded wild.

Regular spins can also offer you randomly triggered prizes and multipliers. You can get paid up to 200x the bet this way, or you could be getting a multiplier of up to 5x to apply to the wins of that round.

Free Games Feature

The symbol which is responsible for triggering the free spins has an image on it which looks a bit like a Pixie or Fairy. As a scatter symbol, it is not very important where it lands, but it has to be on both the 2nd and the 4th reels to get you the feature. These symbols will have values on them that decide how many free spins you will get.

You can get vertical wilds during the free spins, a feature which can occur on the 1st and 3rd reels.

Lucky Beans Feature

This would be the bonus game in Lucky Beans. You collect one bean for each occasion on which a symbol with magic beans appeared on the reels. Once 200 such symbols have made appearances, which might actually take a long time to happen, you get access to the bonus game.

You start off at Level 1, where you get to make four choices, out of the six possibilities laid out in front of you. The target is a prize which will allow you to advance to Level 2. Once you’ve reached Level 2, another choice has to be made, only this time you have three picks and six possibilities. Once again, you have to get to Level 3. If you get there, you have only two picks to make, and six options in front of you.

Betting options and jackpots

Between 1 and 90 coins are used in a bet in Lucky Beans. Each of the 30 lines can get up to 3 coins, while their denominations go as high as $5. That would mean bets of up to $450 used each round, though penny slot players can also afford to play it since the bets can be reduced drastically if needed.

The rewards are best when they come from the wild symbol, a 5,000x jackpot being advertised. There are 15,000 coins which can be won this way, with a value of up to $75,000.

Design and symbols

For some reason, it seems that all developers tend to do a good job when they create a slot machine themed around this particular story. It’s the case with Lucky Beans as well, a cartoon style game which is well made and which doesn’t overwhelm the viewer with playing cards. The white fluffy clouds are visible in the background image, while themed symbols include Jack, Ogres, cows, a goose, treasures and magic beans.


Symbols: Jack (5,000x, wild), Pixie (scatter), Magic Beans (1,000x), Ogre (500x), Goose (400x), Treasure Chest (300x), Cow (200x), Ace (120x), King (100x), Queen (80x) and Jack (50x).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’ve enjoyed all the games that have come with this particular theme, and Lucky Beans is no different. From its prizes, to its graphics and features, it does very well in every category.

This Lucky Beans slot is offered by all online casinos with WGS software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
