Some slots give you many bonuses. Others are packed full of nutritious features. With OnlyPlay’s delicious new slot Lucky Borscht, it’s a bit of both. Based on the Ukrainian staple food Borsht Soup, the fixed jackpot slot is one of the latest releases from OnlyPlay, which is one of the more well-renowned providers in the business.

We sit down with Anna Serheieva, Head of Partnerships at OnlyPlay, who takes us through how the idea of the slot was conceived, the creative process behind its development, and how pride in Ukrainian food is reflected in what is an exciting and fun new game.

More Details About the Lucky Borscht

1. What made you pick borscht as the theme for your slot game? It's quite a unique choice!

Onlyplay is a company with Ukrainian roots. Many of us are now in a foreign country and miss home. We wanted to create a game that would warm our hearts and also spread Ukrainian culture around the world.

At our team meetings during the development of this game, many people were drooling, but we had a really homely atmosphere during the development of this game.

If we talk about marketing and market research, we know that many providers have fruit games. We know that this classic scenario works well in the market.

But we also sought uniqueness and a breakthrough in our creativity. So these two factors overlapped.

2. In the game, players see lots of different ingredients from the borscht recipe. How did you choose which ones to include? Were any left out?

Each cook prepares his borscht in his own way. We even know recipes with beans, mushrooms or fish. There is also green borscht.

But we chose a classic set of products for borscht that everyone can recognize.

Lucky Borscht slot gameplay In the Lucky Borscht slot, you can see all the classic soup ingredients as symbols (beetroot, cabbage, salo, and more).

3. Did you encounter any funny or unexpected moments while creating Lucky Borscht?

The funniest was the moment - with the drawing of a tomato. We had a long discussion about that. After all, the tomato enters the borscht in a liquid state - in the form of processed paste. But at the same time, the taste of tomato is one of the most important things in borscht.

And so it happened that we spent dozens of hours discussing tomatoes. As a result, we chose the classic image of a tomato floating in tomato paste.

4. The graphics in Lucky Borscht are so colorful and inviting. Could you share a little about how you designed the game to look so tasty?

As they say, the main ingredient in borscht is love. In our case - love for borscht.

And I'll tell you a secret, the entire art was drawn in one breath and underwent a minimum of editing. Because our artists intuitively understood what exactly the team wanted to get from this game. So the process was extremely easy.

5. Is there a secret ingredient in Lucky Borscht, like a hidden feature or a surprise that players might find?

Yes, we in the team call it "Dance of Plates". When you start the bonus game, you can enjoy it. You will be able to observe the change of plates from different eras.

6. What’s the best way to enjoy Lucky Borscht? Should players have a bowl of borscht ready for an authentic experience?

The magic is that a plate of borscht will find you after playing Lucky Borscht. We ourselves do not understand how it works.


OnlyPlay are right to be proud of Lucky Borscht, an exciting and beautifully designed slot that is easy to understand and a pleasure to play.

Keep an eye out for further OnlyPlay releases coming shortly.
