Graphics

The graphics are fairly basic, so don’t play this game if you are looking for 3D features and spectacular animations.

Paylines

Lucky Tange comes with five reels and 20 pay lines. You decide how many pay lines to activate, from just 1 to all 20. You activate a payline by betting on it. You can only win on activated pay lines.

Autoplay

This game comes with autoplay, but not for more than 25 consecutive rounds.

The red rose is wild

The red rose is wild and can substitute for any of the standard symbols to help you form a winning combo, but it will not substitute for the accordion or for the dancing couple.

The rose can also pay out plenty in its own right; if you get five roses in a row on an active payline you win 5,000x the coin amount.

The accordion is a scatter symbol

The accordion is a scatter symbol, which means that the accordions can give you a coin win even if they don’t line up on a payline.

3 accordions pays 5x your wager

4 accordions pays 50x your wager

5 accordions pays 150x your wager

During the free spins round, the roses will fall over the reels, turning some symbols wild.

It is possible to trigger the free spins round during free spins, so this feature can continue for quite some time if you are lucky.

Trivia: Accordions and more

The term accordion covers a wide range of instruments featuring reed ranks. The most well-known accordion type is the piano accordion, but the button accordion is more common in Argentine tango music. The button accordion is also heavily featured in musical styles such as Conjunto, Tejano, and Austro-German alpine music.

Bandoneón

The bandoneón is considered an essential instrument for tango ensembles of the orquesta típica variety in Argentina and Uruguay. Normally, such an ensemble contains a bandoneón section with at least three bandoneóns. There will also be a string section with violins and cello, and a rhytm section with piano and double bass.

For a sexteto tipico ensamble, only two bandoneóns, two violins, a piano and a double bass is required, so this configuration is more common than the orquestra típica at smaller events.

The famous Argentine tango composer Astor Piazolla (1921-1992) composed for bandoneón, and was also a highly skilled bandoneonist who regularly performed his own compositions. He is considered one of the world’s foremost composers of tango music and he helped create the style nuevo tango.
