Old But New
Lock A Luck was a collaborative effort between All41 Studios and industry legends Microgaming, and is set to mark a retro wave of slots that celebrate the past.
From the symbol designs, to the way the reels clank around as if they were mechanical, it is clear that much time and effort has gone into making this a truly nostalgic experience. Yes, the world of slots has mostly moved beyond cherries and 7s, but seeing them here will bring a smile to the faces of those who enjoy a glimpse into the past.
But the most interesting aspect of Lock A Luck is that although it is convincing in its retro design, it still features gameplay that makes it a blast to play. Mirrored Reels are the core mechanic, and you can’t accuse this interesting twist of being anything but 100% modern. Try it out and see a true example of old but new.
Symbols Of Old
What would a retro slot be if it didn’t showcase all those symbols that have started to fade? Yes, you guessed it; horseshoes, cherries and diamonds are back in fashion! Of course, the old classics are paired with their usual companions; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
No, they don’t animate, but animating them would have been a betrayal of the theme. Besides, even if they look outdated, it doesn’t stop them from paying out modern money. And plenty of it too!

Retro Made Modern – Mirrored Reels
Mirrored Reels are the added feature that this slot needed to stand apart. Besides appearing to be made of metal, nuts and bolts, of course. Mirrored Reels activate automatically during each spin, locking two adjacent reels in place. This increases the chances of matching combinations being created.
But that’s not all. These locked reels have an additional random chance of being joined by more locked adjacent reels. Each locked reel will have identical symbols, drastically increasing the chances of even more combinations to be achieved. Combine this system with the Wild symbol, and raking in winnings will add all the more charm to the retro design.
