Play Gong Xi Fa Cai Slot for Free & Review

Gong Xi Fa Cai is an IGT jackpot slot with 5 reels and 50 paylines. Playable on all devices, it’s based on the New Year and has a Chinese theme. If you play with the feature bet, your stake will go up by 50% but you’ll get access to the Multiplier feature – a win involving a wild on reel 1 will subject your wins by a multiplier up to 5x. This applies in the Free Spins feature where you begin with 8 free spins and all low value symbols removed – the animal symbols turn gold and increase in value. With more free spins to be won, there are 4 fixed jackpots to be won randomly from any spin.

Gong Xi Fa Cai is a 5 reel, 50 payline jackpot slot powered by IGT. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from as little as 50p to as much as £750 per spin, this is a New Year themed game with a Chinese theme. It benefits from 5x multipliers in the base game as well as a free spins feature and 4 fixed jackpots.

Bright and vibrant, a Chinese character appears in the below to the right of the reels and is quite animated. Symbols on the reels include A to 10 playing cards, birds of prey, dragons, dogs and fish. The dragon is the most lucrative symbol giving you 550 coins for 5 on a payline. The wild symbol gives you 600 coins for 5 in combination and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and multipliers.

Gong Xi Fa Cai means Happy New Year in Mandarin so it has a party feeling to it. With a clear Chinese theme, you can play with the feature bet on which increases your stake by 50% – the minimum stake would therefore be 75p and the maximum stake would be £750.

If you do select the feature bet, you will see multipliers on reel 1 – when part of a winning combination, that multiplier will apply to your wins. You can get 2x, 3x or 5x multipliers on all your wins! This is known as the Multiplier feature.

There’s a Free Spins feature which is played when the Chinese letter scatter appears simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5. You begin with 8 free spins and you are taken to play on a new reel set which doesn’t include the low value playing cards. The animal symbols all become gold increasing their value – the dragon, for example, gives you 750 coins for 5 on a payline.

The good news is that the multipliers from the feature bet apply meaning you can up to a 5x multiplier on each free spin. Look out for 3 scatters on a free spin as this will retrigger the feature and give you more free spins!

The game also benefits from 4 fixed jackpots which are randomly triggered on any spin – you get to choose a money wallet to reveal a red, green, blue or purple gemstone. When you match 3 of the same colour, you’ll win that respective jackpot (Mini, Minor, Major or Maxi). For example, if paying at 75p per spin, you’ll win £5,000 which equates to over 66 times your stake.

Gong Xi Fa Cai is quite a simple slot in essence with the big wins coming from the potential 5x multiplier in the free spins – I consider it to be a medium to high variance game which is surprisingly quite entertaining. I also recommend you play IGT’s other Chinese themed slot, 1421 Voyages of Zheng He which is very good.
