Caishen is widely regarded to be the Chinese God of Wealth and, if you're in favour with him, you could win a small fortune thanks to his Wild Wins, Scattered Gold Ingots, Free Games Feature, and Progressive Jackpot in this fun slot game from Real Time Gaming.
The setting for this slot is serene and very relaxing as you reside in the comfort of a beautiful Chinese home and look through transparent reels out into a gorgeous Chinese garden. From here you can choose to play 1 to 25 pay-lines on any spin of this 5-reel game, and then choose total-bets ranging from 0.01 coins to 6.25 coins to suit your staking plan – remembering that all prizes are multiplied by your line-bet, except Scatters which are multiplied by your total-bet.
The number 8 is thought to be the luckiest of all numbers in China because in Chinese the word for 8 is Fa, which is very similar to their word for wealth – and wealth to the tune of up to 250x your line-bet will come your way if you can line-up 3 to 5 symbols of any of the six different coloured 8's you'll find spinning around the reels.
However, even bigger prizes await you in the form of Chinese Lanterns at up to 300x your line-bet, Oxen at up to 500x, Tigers at up to 2,500x, and Green Dragons at up to 5,000x your line-bet.
You'll be even luckier if you're are in favour with Caishen the God of Wealth as he's the game's Wild Symbol and, when he substitutes himself into any winning combination by appearing on reel-3, he will double the normal prize. Caishen can also appear in multiple form on all reels where he acts as a prize symbol on his own – with 5 Caishen Symbols paying a fantastic 10,000x your line-bet.
You'll also want to find plenty of the Gold Ingots that look like fortune cookies as these are the game's Scatter Symbol and can trigger total-bet multiplying wins and the Free Games Feature. 3 Ingots will trigger 3x your total-bet and the Feature, 4 ingots will trigger 10x your total-bet and the Feature, and 5 Ingots will trigger a fantastic 200x your total-bet and the Feature.
When the Free Spins Feature is a triggered you will be offered the choice of several Gold Ingots from which you must choose one to reveal up to 10 Free Spins. During your Free Spins all Green Dragons, Tigers and Oxen will be replaced by Caishen Symbols as he bids to shower you with some of his wealth.
More of his wealth can also come your way via the Progressive Jackpot which was $1,462.45 at the time of review, and the Jackpot can be randomly awarded after any spin.
Chinese Themed Slots may be plentiful, but Real Time Gaming must have spent some serious time designing God of Wealth as it’s one of the better games in this category. They’ve took time to find a real and interesting protagonist, and have then given him plenty of Wild Power in both the main game and Free Spins Feature. Add in the excellent Scatter wins and the Progressive Jackpot – and it’s easy to see we’ll be all be hoping we’re in favour with the God Of Wealth!
