Lightning Dollar Link minimum bet bonus trigger

Brian Christopher plays a lot of Lightning Link-style games, with multiple families of games out there to draw not only his interest, but those of other players. And they do draw a ton of interest!

Part of the allure is the Hold and Spin bonus, which leads Brian to say one of his favorite catchphrases, “Big numbers attract big numbers.” But that has caught the ear of one player, who has a simple question:

Why do you say big numbers attract big numbers? Isn’t it just a RNG?

Susan M.

Thanks for the question, Susan! We have a few things to share about this very popular feature, and that will include an answer to your specific question.

First off, in our conversations with Aristocrat over the years, we have confirmed that the hold and spin bonus is RNG-based. This means that there is an actual purpose to your hitting the button each time to spin for more numbers.

The way the bonus is structured, one out of the 15 spaces is incredibly difficult to land (which tends to move around the board as the bonus progresses, if you pay close attention). If you land a number in that space, your chances of landing the Grand and filling all 15 spaces increases quite a bit – but is not guaranteed. As those of us who play these games often enough know, even filling the 14 easier spaces isn’t a lock, and often doesn’t happen.

Another aspect to the numbers that appear is how the numbers come out. Oftentimes smaller prizes, say 1-5x your bet amount, are the norm, but bigger numbers can appear more rarely. But one aspect to the game some don’t always notice upfront is on certain spins, the numbers themselves can simply be much larger across the board.

At the top of this article is an example of a trigger screen a member of our staff got on Lightning Dollar Link. You can see right away, despite the $1 bet, how there’s not all 1-5x prizes, but instead it is weighted more towards 10x and 20x prizes.

These larger numbers carried through for the remainder of the bonus – here’s how the bonus concluded. Notice more 10x prizes and even a 50x Minor!

So that’s what Brian is referring to – the aspect of the game where on a minority of spins, bigger numbers are the focus, drawing other big numbers during the hold and spin if it is triggered. While the RNG has a role in what numbers come out and when, so does this notion of whether it’s using the smaller numbers more prevalently or emphasizing the larger ones.

It’s one of the nuances of the game that makes it so exciting, and one reason why nearly a decade after Lightning Link hit casino floors, it and its siblings continue to perform extremely well.

    Which likely are better and faster bonus hitting games, dragon link or dragon Cash, I need a Jackpots 🤑🎅🏼🙏🏽

      Dragon Link and Dragon Cash are basically the same game, with just a difference in how the progressives are handled, so you won’t find one bonusing any more often than another.
