Celebrate the Year of the Dog in style with the new Lucky New Year slot

  • Pragmatic Play launches new Lucky New Year slot
  • New game features Chinese Year of the Dog theme

Start the Year of the Dog in style, and in affluent fashion with developer Pragmatic Play’s latest online slot game, the vibrant and action packed Lucky New Year.


The multi-aware winning casino games developer has launched the 3×5 slot game to coincide with the Chinese new year, and it offers much in the way of gusto and celebration, from drums, dragon masks and firecrackers to the opportunity to hit some big wins.

Year of the Dog

Lucky New Year is a fun game aesthetically, with the brightly coloured reels and themed background – think classic Chinese street parties – adding to the intended atmosphere well.

As well as the drum, dragon mask and firecracker symbols, the dog acts as the game’s wild symbol. Once a successful spin is achieved by the payer the dog will appear in stacks on the reels and bark wildly.

In Chinese mythology, the dog is the 11th sign of the zodiac, and is generally perceived to be honest and loyal, while at the same time being a true friend and reliable partner. Players will surely be hoping that honesty and loyalty translates into some big wins in this latest video slot.

Bonuses and spins

The game boasts a few features that are well worth looking out for. There’s a free spins mode that merges the middle reels to form a reel of ‘giant super symbols’. Essentially, these boost your chances of achieving the game’s biggest wins. Hit six or more lanterns during this period and a re-spins features is thrown into the mix too.

In this feature all other symbols apart from the lanterns disappear from the reels and each of the lantern symbols either gives a direct money prize of access to one of Lucky New Year’s fixed jackpots.

“We are proud to launch Lucky New Year, a game that builds on our reputation for delivering engaging, best in breed video slots,” says Melissa Summerfield, Pragmatic’s chief commercial officer.

“The game cranks up the excitement with an enticing array of bonus features, and we look forward to rolling out the title with our growing number of internationally recognised platform and operating partners.”

Pragmatic Play provides its titles to a host of online casinos, the likes of which include LeoVegas and Videoslots.
