Lucky 8 Line
We owe a lot to Charles August Fey, the guy who first invented the coin-operated slot machine in 1894. They were pretty naughty at the time, and became banned in San Francisco in 1909 – and the only way to get around the law was to get rid of the coin operation, and dole out winnings in the form of alcohol and cigars in the old saloons. It’s safe to say these games have been around for a while, but a classic never gets old, and that’s why the fruit slots will never go out of style.
NetEnt have paid homage to the traditional casino slot with Lucky 8 Line, and have brought the old-school game to the new screen. Go back to where it all began with this slot game that looks and sounds just like the real thing.

About the Game
Lucky 8 Line looks feels and sounds like a genuine old fruit slot – it’s set up on a casino floor, with a retro (and slightly clunky looking) machine. It’s a three-reel, three-row slot, where you can play a single line or all 64 lines, as you can win vertically, horizontally and diagonally. As you spin, you’ll hear the classic slot sound – transporting you onto the floor of a real casino.
Just like a traditional slot game, there are no wilds, scatters or bonus rounds – but sometimes you just need to get back to basics! You’ve got lots of fruit symbols: watermelons, blueberries, oranges, with a bell thrown in for good fortune. Plus the high-value bar symbols and number 7’s: triple bar symbols can increase your bet up to 500 times, and the number 7 can help you increase your bets up to 1000 times.
Who doesn’t love a bit of nostalgia? When it comes to slot games, it’s great that there are so many innovative, creative and interesting slot games out there, but throw in the millions of bonus rounds you need to get your head around, and all the crazy animations – sometimes it’s nice to play something old-school, simple and to the point. This is where Lucky 8 Line delivers. Not to be looked down on, you can win up to 8000 coins if you play it right – so it’s a great game for those looking for a break from the modern slot world.
