Lucky Star Revolution

Published: 22/05/2013

Developed by Electracade for distribution to online casinos like Bet365 through Orbis OpenBet, “Lucky Star Revolution” is an update and expansion of the previously released “Lucky Star” fixed odds betting game. In fact, it features the popular Oriental-style original, which was based upon roulette-type wagering, and it adds two exciting variations that can be played within the same application.

The original game board for Lucky Star features a racetrack arrangement of the numbers 0~8 in a five-pointed star-shaped configuration. In Lucky Star Revolution, this configuration can be found under the “5 Star” tab at the top of the game display. It is accompanied by tabs for the seven-point “7 Star” and triangular “3 Star” games as well as one for “All Star,” which allows all three versions to be played at once.

In each version, bets can be placed directly on the game layout to back a specific result or in a special wagering section on the left side of the screen. Game controls run along the bottom and scoring information can be seen along the top. The chip denominations appear at the right side, with available sizes being £0.50, £1, £2, £5, £10, £25, £50, £100 and £500. Bets are placed by moving the cursor over any of the betting sections on the game board and choosing options such as Odd, Even, Black, Red, Green or a specific number on the race track.

As the cursor passes over each betting section, the corresponding numbers light up and the respective odds are displayed in the jewel-like area at the very centre of the board. The special wagering section on the left features spots for betting on each number: 0~3 for 3 Start, 0~8 for 5 Star and 0~9 for 7 Star. For all but 3 Star, wagers can also be made on “In” or “Out,” referring to numbers surrounding the central jewel or along the points of the star.

The rows that form each leg of the race track can also be backed with bets. They are identified by the Chinese ideograms and light up when the cursor passes over the betting areas. Another possible wager on 5 Star and 7 Star is “Hi” or “Lo,” referring to the sets of number 1~4 and 5~8/9.

When placing bets, several useful controls are available. On the left side of the screen are buttons for “Clear” and “Undo.” The former can be clicked to remove all bets, and the latter is used to clear only the most recent wager placed. Another button on the right side marked “Repeat” can be used to wager on exactly the same numbers and/or combinations as were backed during the last game.

In the upper right corner of the screen is a “Turbo” button that can be used to speed up play. There are two toggles that will display “Cold” and “Hot” numbers and a “Stats” button for showing the frequency of success for each line in the star. Along the far right side of the screen is a history of the most recent 16 results, too. Using the “Options” menu tab on the Toolbar, audio and graphic adjustments can be made for “Sound” and “Quality.” As for sound effects, chimes and gongs greet every aspect of play.

When the “All Star” option is selected, all three star patterns appear together in the display. Clicking on one of them will highlight the game and bring up the corresponding special wagering section so that bets can be made. Because the betting areas are so small, a “Magnifier” toggle is provided at the lower right to enlarge the view as the cursor passes over various sections of the display. Each of the three stars has its own “Total Stake” and “Winnings” counters, plus there is an overall “total Stake” counter at the upper right. Total winnings display in the very middle of the screen after each game.
