Mark your calendar for the 12th November 2019, because that’s when a time machine will be made available at All Jackpots, a world-class casino online. Or at least a time machine in the shape of an online slot! The game is called Lock A Luck, and one glance will tell you pretty much everything you need to know. Yes, it looks like a slot from decades ago. This, of course, comes with the simplicity and elegance that made these early games so popular.
No, there aren’t expensive animated symbols, but then that is exactly the point of the title. Good, streamlined, simple slots fun with all the winning potential, but none of the unnecessary flash that has bogged down more modern creations.
Lock A Luck is a creation of All41 Studios, who joined forces with Microgaming. The game is perfectly optimised for play on desktop and mobile, so you can play how you want, when you want.
The Good Old Days
Yes, Lock A Luck revels in the retro styling’s of old. The symbols are recognisable as the most basic designs possible, coming from the earliest slots ever designed. The zone beyond the reels has even been dressed up to look like a mechanical machine of days gone by. It is all very charming, especially considering the impressive amount of detail that has gone into creating an obsolete contraption.
So, just because it appears old, it doesn’t mean a whole lot of work hasn’t gone into it. Lock A Luck is a celebration of the past, and as we all know those were the good old days.
The symbols are where Lock A Luck really shines. If you were starting to think that cherries, 7s, horseshoes, four leafed clovers and diamonds had mostly gone out of fashion, well, you’d be right. But here they all are, and happy to be making a comeback. Naturally, these relics of the past have also been brought back to life in full HD, just in case you were wondering. After all, retro style can be touched up a bit with some modern resolution magic.
Also featured are the traditional 9, 10, J, Q K and A.

Mirrored Reels And Wilds Features
Just because Lock A Luck wears the paint of a retro game it doesn’t mean that some interesting gameplay features haven’t been brought to liven things up. The Mirrored Reels feature is something special, and certainly an interesting twist to how players expect a slot to work. During each spin two adjacent reels are locked in place, completely at random. The chance exists that more reels can be added to this initial locked reels. The twist? The symbols on all locked reels will be completely identical. We’ll let you think about the payout potential of this crafty new angle.
There are, of course, also Wilds. They operate as you would expect, standing as substitute for any other symbol, and allowing more matches to be achieved. They appear on reels 2,3 and 4.
