I Love Lucy Slots

I-Love-LucyI Love Lucy is a game from WMS which is dedicated to the TV series with the same name. WMS appears to have made it under official license, so you get pictures with the actors from the series among the symbols. It was a sitcom which aired in black and white, between 1951 and 1957 in the original form, and in a modified format from 1957 to 1960. A very successful TV series, it has won multiple Emmy Awards and even a Peabody. The game manages to capture the retro look of the 50s, that so many other slots have used.

The slot has the standard 5 reels, but an unusual number of 27 paylines on them. There are cascading reels inside, along with various bonus games, wild symbols and a scatter. Its top payout is valued at $2,500.

Features of I Love Lucy

The slot’s features are based on wilds, on scatter symbols, cascading reels, Win It Again and a bonus game.

First of all, the game has Cascading Reels, which rely on winning combinations to be formed. Whenever this happens, the symbols which are involved go off the screen, and new ones come in and give you a second chance to get paid, without spending money to spin the reels again. The game even rewards you for having multiple consecutive wins through cascading reels.

Get three cascading reels in consecutive order, and you will be given a prize that is worth as much as the last five wins. You will find the wins in the meter called Win It Again.

There is also a feature called Cash Out Chance, which you can trigger at will. You can get the money from the meter when you do this, or it can happen when you close the game, in which case it triggers automatically.

A Mystery Boost can happen after a losing round, though it triggers at random and you’re not guaranteed to get it. You can get anywhere between 200x and 1,000x the line wager, money which is for the meter.

The wild symbol has the WILD Logo on it and it is a substitute for most symbols of the game, the Feature icon being the one exception. You will find that it’s quite useful because it brings you more wins, but the developers didn’t gave it its own prizes to give away.

Pick a Clip Feature

The bonus game of I Love Lucy comes when the scatter symbols get involved. Marked with the word Feature, you need three of them to be on the reels, no matter where, and you will get the feature to start. Up to 50x the bet is won as well when there are enough of them.

You get 20 hearts on the screen, and you are asked to pick. Each one brings you a different video from the TV series. You have to match as many clips of the same type as you can, and the rewards can vary anywhere between 200x and 1,000x. There is also a chance of getting a 2x multiplier, to double the wins of the bonus game.

Betting options and jackpots

A total of 40 coins are part of every single bet you place inside. 27 coins are used for the line bets, with 13 coins being used to trigger the features. The coin denominations vary from $0.01 to $5, so you can expect wagers of up to $200 per spin.

The I Love Lucy Heart will bring you up to 500 coins, with values going as high as $2,500.

Design and symbols

The slot has a certain retro vibe to it that I enjoyed immensely. It is similar to a number of other slot machines which chose to deal with the 50s and on its reels you will discover symbols which are from that era, starting with the old TV sets of different shapes which have scenes from the series, continuing with objects like old rotary phones or medicine bottles.


Symbols: WILD Logo (wild), Cartoon Stars (scatter), I Love Lucy Heart (500 coins), Lucy on TV (300 coins), Lucy and Ricky (150 coins), Fred and Ethel Mertz (150 coins), Tube (120 coins), Rotary Telephone (120 coins) and Bottle (120 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

The slot’s theme should insure it an audience immediately, but there are enough features inside to warrant that kind of attention anyway.

I Love Lucy, the TV Show

A very popular sitcom that aired in the United States in black and white, I Love Lucy started in October 1951, and lasted until May 1957 in its original form, with another version being aired between 1957 and 1960. The focus was on the main character, Lucy, which was played by Lucille Ball. Other important actors in the series were Desi Arnaz, William Frawley and Vivian Vance. Even after more than half a century, the show is still incredibly popular, especially when airing in its now colorized version.

The I Love Lucy slot machine is offered through the WMS platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
