Game Release
Feb 15, 2024


Popular iGaming slots provider BGaming is building on the success of its first Merge Up™ release with cascading slot Lucky 8 Merge Up™. The cluster-pay game boasts the studio’s trademarked mechanic, along with glowing Scatter symbols, free spins, Cell Multipliers, and its popular Buy Bonus and Chance x2 buttons. 

Lucky 8 Merge Up™ appeals to players who enjoy easy-to-follow sessions with added thrills and casino bonuses. Here, the base game is the primary feature, with the Merge Up™ mechanic causing symbols to merge into ones of higher value and unlock rewards.

The Merge Up™ mechanic sees four or more identical symbols drop adjacently, either vertically or horizontally, and form a cluster. Some symbols in the cluster subsequently disappear, and those remaining transform into leveled-up symbols. There are nine levels of symbols, and the final win amount depends on the level of the merging symbols and their numbers.

The Scatter is the highest symbol on the ninth level, representing the glowing number eight. This symbol lands in any position, and if four or more land on the reels, a round of Free Spins is triggered. The Scatter may also appear on the reels if a cluster of high eighth-level symbols is formed, in which case the winning is paid, and the Scatter symbol forms. 

When the required number of four, five, or six Scatters appear on screen, 15, 18, or 20 free spins are triggered. If another four, five, or six appear on the reels during the Free Spins round, the round is retriggered, with five, eight, or 10 extra spins granted. Cell Multipliers are generated from winning clusters during the Free Spins mode and the multipliers can increase by x2 up to a maximum x128. This is then applied to subsequent wins.

This very-high volatility casino game with 97.25% RTP and a €250,000 max win also offers BGaming’s popular Bonus Buy and Chance x2 options, which provide faster routes to free spins. 

We are pleased that our Merge Up™ mechanic is powering this latest addition to the series, with Lucky 8 Merge Up™ promising intriguing gameplay that appeals to general players and streamers alike. The latest trends in mobile gaming inspired the merging mechanic behind this family of slots, and we hope the feeling of progressing through the different symbol levels will delight players.
