Fu Dao Le is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot powered by Bally Technologies. With an Asian theme, this game is very popular in land based casinos. It can be played from 38p to £35 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices and benefits from 5 fixed jackpots, free spins with multiplier wilds and stacked reveal symbols.
Visually, Fu Dao Le has a very Asian feel to it and is predominantly red – to the side of the reel set, you will see the Fu Dao Le boy and girl who oversee proceedings. Symbols on the reels include regular playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9) as well as red envelopes, lanterns, wilds and gong bonus scatters.
The game benefits from Mystery Stacked Reels – each reel contains stacked mystery symbol positions that are replace with 1 randomly chosen symbol after each spin. All mystery positions are replaced with the same chosen symbol on each spin.
Fu Dao Le comes with a Pick feature which is activated when you get 3 wild symbols stacked on the middle reel or a partial stack of wilds appear on reel 3 that can be nudged up or down. You then make picks from a grid of 15 coins until 3 of them reveal the Mini, Minor, Major or Maxi fixed jackpot.
There’s also a Red Envelope Jackpot feature – before each spin in the base game, any combination of 2 scattered Red Envelope symbols can trigger the Red Envelope Jackpot feature. These symbols only appear on reels 1 and 5 and can trigger at any stake level. The more red envelopes you get, the higher the jackpot can reach – randomly, it will trigger to give you the fixed jackpot amount.
There’s more – there’s a Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 gong bonus scatter symbols on the reels. You will get 8 free spins are 2 times your total stake initially. Look out for bonus scatters appearing during the feature as each 1 will give you an additional free spin. As for standard wilds, you will benefit from 2x and 3x multipliers that appear on the middle reel and could enhance your winning potential further.
Fu Dao Le is very popular in the land based casinos and is sure to become a big hit online – I found it to be a medium variance title with the bigger wins coming in the Free Games feature due to the potential wild multipliers and additional free spins. I also recommend you try Bally’s Dragon Spin which also has an Asian theme.
