Play Lucky 8

Put away that fortune cookie. Actually go ahead and eat it, but don’t worry about the fortune written on that paper. You don’t need baked goods to feel the power of Chinese luck. Just play Lucky 8, our amazing online slots game that puts the good fortune of ancient Chinese prophecy in your corner. And with so many ways to win, we predict you’re in for the luckiest streak of your life.

In Lucky 8, you’ll come face to face with an ancient Chinese Emperor. You’ll want to bow before him because he’s your ticket to claiming big prizes. Sit back and watch your bankroll grow with two big progressive jackpots, a win-win feature guarantee that pays you out even if luck isn’t on your side, a top award of 50,000x your bet per line, a special Gong symbol that gives you big prize multipliers, and so much more. All you need is the free CoolCat Casino software to get started. The game is accessible through the downloadable client or through Instant Play, so feel free to try your luck wherever and whenever you’re in the mood!

How to play

Ready to meet the Emperor and enjoy a wealth of opportunities to win? Get started by making your bet and line selections. You can play between 1 line and all 25, and you can bet between $0.01 and $5 per line for a maximum bet of $125 per spin. Just use the up and down arrows next to the Bet and Lines buttons to make your choices. When you’re happy with your bet, click Spin to get the reels moving. When they come to a stop, you’ll win if you’ve managed to line up qualifying symbols. To see which symbols pay out the most cash, just click the Help button at any time from within the game.

Game Rules

Taking a trip to ancient China is easy with us. We’ll take care of transporting you there and showing you the right way to bow to the Emperor. While a lot of luck is going to float your way, we ask that you follow these rules on your quest for fortune:

  • The Emperor symbol can substitute in for every other symbol in the game, except for the Lucky 8 symbol.
  • Lucky 8 comes with a top award of 50,000x your bet.
  • Any scatter wins are added to line wins and multiplied by your total bet.


In this 25-payline game, you can play anywhere between one line and all 25. But just because you have the option to play fewer lines, it doesn’t mean you necessarily should. If you’ve got a limited budget to work with, consider lowering your bet amount per line instead of the number of lines. By lowering your lines, you risk lining up symbols on a payline that you didn’t play. And when that happens, you don’t win.


If you’re the type of casino player who prefers to play with the volume turned down or completely muted, you might want to turn up the volume for this one. Lucky 8 features a special Gong sound that leads to automatic prize multipliers. While you don’t technically need to hear the Gong sound to win the extra coin, if you’re using a betting strategy to modify your bet after a big win, the sound is important.

In ancient Chinese culture, the number 8 is considered one of the luckiest numbers around. The Chinese word for “eight” (Pinyin) sounds almost identical to the word for prosper or wealth. How serious is the number 8? Several Asian airlines have number flights between Beijing and North America 888. And back in 2003, a telephone number featuring nothing but the number eight was sold for $280,000 to a company that wanted to represent luck. It’s not uncommon for those who believe in ancient Chinese luck to seek out houses that are numbered 8. Today, we’re excited to bring Lucky 8 to CoolCat Casino so everyone can feel the luck of the number 8.


Ready to feel lucky? We recommend learning the lingo first. Traveling to ancient China requires a little bit of upfront knowledge. Learn these terms and you’ll have more fun playing Lucky 8.

Substitute Symbol: In Lucky 8, the Emperor symbol can replace all other symbols in the game, except for the Lucky 8 symbols. You can think of this as a wild symbol.

Scatter Symbol: Look out for the Lucky 8 symbol. Hitting three or more of them gets you eight free games.

Autoplay: Rather try your luck on autopilot? Turn on Autoplay and the software will spin for you automatically, and then pay you out if you’ve won something.
