Powered by Pragmatic Play, Caishen’s Gold is a five reels and 243 ways slot game that takes players on a virtual visit to the mysterious and inscrutable orient. Caishen’s Gold has some colourful visuals and some appetising jackpot prizes.
Caishen’s Gold is based on the title character who is the Chinese God of Wealth – always handy when players require a bit of good fortune when spinning the reels. Caishen’s Gold is a five reel slot with three rows and two hundred and forty-three ways to win, and behind those gold-framed reels players can make out a sunny landscape where payline standards sway in the breeze.
The design in Caishen’s Gold is set within a traditional Chinese architecture and backed by a tranquil valley, the higher value cards are Ace to 9 playing cards alongside a fan, a lotus flower, a stringed instrument, a young boy and a young girl. Land five of the latter in combination for a 200-coin payout.
Caishen himself is wild, he appears on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels and as the game's wild will replace all others to help form winning combinations except for the golden gong scatter symbol. Not only does Caishen substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter. Caishen is instrumental to triggering one of the game’s pair of features.
Bonus Features of Caishen’s Gold
Every time Caishen appears in the primary game, there’s a chance that the Jackpot game will be triggered. Players will be taken to a second screen where players will see twelve coins displayed, and all they have to do is select them until three matching symbols are exposed. Choosing enough symbols will determine which of the four jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major and Grand) will be won. These are fixed jackpot prizes and are worth either x30, x50, x100 and x1000 player's total bet.
This round is triggered traditionally by landing 3 or more scatters on adjacent reels on the same spin. As well as an award of five, ten or fifty times players stake, they'll also receive ten free spins. These are played on a different set of reels that contain only the higher value symbols. Players can re-trigger more free spins too!
During the free spins, only the wilds, scatters and higher value symbols are present on the reels.
Caishen's Gold is a jolly slot – the graphics are very nicely done combined with classy audios playing whilst players spin. The features don’t offer anything punters haven’t seen before but are decent enough to give it a go. Caishen’s Gold follows the format of other Chinese-themed slots but there are some likeable bonus features here and their high quality, distinctive graphical style will please all gamers.
