Countries with rich tradition and culture appear to be generally used topics for crafting video slots. With its long folklore and so many characters to serve as an inspiration, China is among the most favorite choices of content producers.
Creative games developer, Red Rake Gaming, furnished its portfolio with (another) Asian-inspired game. Structured as a 5×3 configuration, Caishen 88 brings 25 paylines and entire collection of compelling features, eye-catching graphics, and a pleasant soundtrack.
Turning the Reels into Gold
Caishen, God of Wealth, is the mythological figure from Chinese tradition seldom conjured during the Chinese New Year celebrations.
There is a huge variety of appearances of this broadly glorified god, where he’s depicted riding a black tiger and holding a golden rod or with an iron tool capable of turning stone and iron into gold. With such huge powers, it doesn’t come as a surprise that he frequently ends up as a superstar of slot games.
RRG delivered their form of the story, covering it up in the most intense spectrum of colors and seasoning up the atmosphere with sufficiently selected sound effects and oriental melody.
“ the mythological figure from Chinese folklore”
The God of Wealth, as supposed is the most energetic symbol of the game, as it has several roles, all of which increase the winning chances.
Besides acting as Wild, he also multiplies the wins that he is involved in with the diversity of lucky multipliers: x2, x3, x5, x8, x18, x38 or x88. When three “Money Tree” symbols hit the reels, it activates a roulette game where punter gains the access to 4 different features that bring bonus spins with a variety of multipliers or the “Chinese Lantern Minigame.”
If the player lands on the roulette pocket with the “Chinese Lantern,” a new feature will be activated. This one begins with several Chinese lanterns fixed in place (from 3 to 5) and 3 extra spins.
Each additional lantern will be fixed in place…restarting the counter at 3 bonus rounds. The feature will end when the spins are over or when all of the reels are filled with lanterns. And to make the “Chinese Lanterns” shine even brighter, the punter can win the Jackpots that shows up in the upper section during this feature: Minor, Major, and Grand Jackpots, which will all generate meaningful winnings.
