This 5-reel, 15-payline slot from Play ‘N Go has a theme inspired by the Chinese zodiac. It offers two bonus rounds, where you get the chance to land some significant wins. Chinese lucky colours--red (good fortune and joy), green (prosperity), and yellow (good luck ) abound in this game. Even the background music perfectly complements the Oriental theme.

Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You may start by clicking on the Coin Value tab to set your preferred coin denomination. You may then click on the Coins +/- tabs to set the number of coins you want to wager per payline. To set the number of lines you want to play, click on the Lines +/- tabs. If you want to wager the highest amount allowed, click on the Bet Max tab. To set the reels into motion, click on the Spin tab. If you want the reels to spin automatically, click on the Autoplay tab at the rightmost end of the control panel.

Feature Symbols

You will not see any of the familiar playing card symbols in this game, as all base game symbols are theme-related. There are nine base game symbols, and they are all animals that represent the Chinese zodiac. There is a pig, a dog, a rooster, a goat, a horse, a snake, a rabbit, an ox, and a rat.

The three remaining animals representing the Chinese zodiac are special symbols on this slot. The game’s Wild symbol is represented by the tiger. It can substitute for any of the other base game symbols, with the exception of the two Bonus symbols. The Bonus symbols are represented by a monkey and a dragon, to complete the animal zodiac set. These symbols are key to the game’s main bonus rounds.

Bonus Rounds

One of the game’s main bonus rounds is the familiar Free Spins feature. This is activated when you land the monkey symbol on the first, third, and fifth reels. The monkey will then light and spin a fireworks wheel, and when the wheel stops, the symbol on which it stops will become an extra Scatter symbol. The monkey will then strike the gong to reveal the number of free spins you get. This feature cannot be re-triggered within the bonus round.

The other bonus round that makes this game more entertaining is the Firework Bonus. This is activated when you land the dragon symbol anywhere on the third, fourth, and fifth reels. You will then be taken to a lakeside setting where you will see five giant fireworks rockets. Click on the rockets one at a time and watch them fly off and explode, rewarding you with a special prize with every kaboom. When you click on the dud, the bonus game ends.

The game also has the Gamble feature. Every time you land a winning combination, you will be given the option of whether to collect your prize or gamble it. If you choose to gamble, you will be taken to a mini-game where you will need to guess the colour of the next playing card to be drawn. If you guess correctly, your prize will be doubled and the mini-game continues. If you guess wrong, the mini-game ends and you will lose your total wins for that round.
