Lady Luck Double Take is similar to many other £100 jackpot fruit machines from Reflex gaming, with a predetermined Deal or No Deal type super feature game and a progressive game play that can be used to the players advantage if caught at the right time.
The look and feel of Lady Luck Double Take is of a regular Bell Fruit Deal or No Deal game, with feature entry been awarded via a win or three symbols in view or on the win line. Feature entry with three bonus symbols on the win line will open up the super feature, otherwise it must be opened during the feature game by landing on the gold pots. There isn’t much point in playing the fruit machine except for the super feature, but it is fairly generous when it comes to offering it. Although as mentioned previously, the hidden value is predetermined, i.e. not random like the majority of Deal or No Deal games, excluding The Big One and Power Play which are also predetermined. This means that if you are not forcing the fruit machine, the majority of super feature awards will be around the same value.
A reasonable new element to fruit machines and one that was likely introduced by Reflex is the messages after losing a feature game. ‘You are guaranteed a feature within X spins on this stake..’ While this may seem like a good idea, it is obviously only for the machines benefit to keep you playing longer. Most features you are either going to lose again, or at best get your money back. The only time it is worth paying attention to the messages is when it is about to award the super or double super game. These may result in a profit if you are to collect the super game, but for the most part they should be ignored.
Lady Luck Double Take also features progressive cashpots which are awarded from the super game via a hidden box value. As you may have noticed, many of the cashpots are on £100 so don’t use their value to judge whether the fruit machine is worth playing or not. The cashpots are very difficult to win, even when forcing you may not get one, so be wary of that when you see a high value. The Double Take part of the name refers to the opening of a second super feature board. With both boards open you will be able to work out what your hidden value is early on during the game as it will have to be the remaining value on both game boards. For example, if £100 is eliminated from one board but not the other, you can not have £100 in your box. The progressive feature and cash ladder is similar to that of many other fruit machines, but as this machine is ‘forcible’ you will notice an increase the longer you play the machine for. If you are to force the machine for the jackpot, you will find the cost to be around the same value as the top prize, with the profit coming from any repeat or additional wins that may be awarded.
