Game Review Conclusion

Initially we were not sure about this game but it ended up being pretty fun to play. Admittedly we like games that have a story line, or as in this case the legend of the main character being lucky. We ended up getting a pleasant surprise and picked up the minor jackpot once during our initial testing. Not much time was spent using the higher risk button, we assume that raises the volatility slightly.

Overall a decent game you may enjoy. You can find this game at casinos that offer the slots from BGaming software.
