Progressive Jackpot: Yes
Relive the vibrant celebration that is Chinese New Year in this online slot developed by IGT called Gong Xi Fa Cai. This slot’s title is actually the Chinese translation of the annual festival and this game comes with free spins and best of all, a progressive jackpot that will keep punters playing for that massive payout.
Gong Xi Fa Cai is a five-reel slot that has three rows and 50 fixed paylines. It features an animated and cartoonish design that sees a gold ingot-toting character at the bottom right-hand corner, next to a pile of gold coins and right beneath the different jackpot totals.
The slot makes sure to put in a lot of the most celebrated elements of Chinese New Year. This includes Ying and Yang, and the Phoenix which is an iconic symbol of the end of one year and the birth of another from its ashes. And the great news is that these iconic symbols and many others can help you win some worthwhile prizes!
Not only that, the best part of this slot is you can win one of four jackpots. These are the Mini, Minor, Major and Maxi Jackpot – with the latter giving players the chance to win an incredible eight million dollars!
As many people of Chinese lineage have made homes all around the globe, Chinese New Year has since been transformed into a globally celebrated event. And now, you can partake in all the fun in style with the help of Gong Xi Fa Cai.
There are a lot of prizes, multipliers, and wilds to help you celebrate, though we can all only hope that your yin and yang are in perfect balance so you can come away with one of those lucrative jackpots. Now that would be a happy New Year unlike any other!
The four higher value symbols are stylized animals that include a dragon, a tiger, an eagle, and some Koi carp. 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. The wild symbol is a big, colorful “Wild” that substitutes for all others except the Chinese symbol scatter icon.
This is triggered by landing three of the Chinese symbol scatters anywhere on reels one, three and five. You will now receive eight free spins that can be retriggered by landing three scatters once more.
This only happens on reel one and your win will be multiplied by 2x, 3x or 5x if a symbol displaying a multiplier appears as part of a winning combo. It occurs in the base game and free spins round.
Dynamic Symbol Replacement
Symbols on reels two, three, four and five can transform into one of the four high-value icons before any base game spin.
This can be randomly triggered after any base game win which includes the multiplier feature; all you have to do now is pick the red envelopes until you’ve found three matching gems which will determine the jackpot win – Maxi, Major, Minor and Mini.
