Chinese New Year Slot Review

Chinese New Year is a 5 reel, 15 payline game created by Play ‘N Go. The theme of the game is Chinese celebration with its 12 zodiac symbols, the colour red, and oriental music in the background. Chinese New Year is an important traditional holiday for the Chinese - it is celebrated at the turn of the Chinese (Han) calendar.

You may notice the game is making use of the colours that Chinese think are lucky - red (good fortune and joy), green (prosperity) and yellow (good luck). Chinese New Year slot features scatters, wilds, a gamble feature, a free spin bonus and a firework bonus. Let's hope this game brings you luck and money. The minimum bet is 15p and the max bet is £18.75 per spin for all paylines.

The most valuable symbol is the tiger. If you get 5 tiger symbols on an active payline it will multiply your stake by 5,000 times. However, look out for the Dragon symbol which can only be found on reels 3, 4 and 5. Get 3 dragons simultaneously on these reels and it will trigger the Fireworks Bonus feature.

You will be taken to a new screen where there are 5 fireworks ready to be ignited - you shoot fireworks which multiply your bet until you find one that is not working which ends the bonus round. You can win a cool 150 times your stake if you’re lucky.

The other symbol of worth is the Monkey symbol as you will trigger the Free Spins feature where you get 3 or more monkeys anywhere on reels 1, 2 and 3. You will be rewarded with 5 times your stake and then taken to a new screen where our mischievous monkey jumps on a block and lights what looks like a magic fire wheel they use in Feng Shui, with all the zodiac symbols on it.

Lighting up the red wheel makes it spin and when it stops on an animal, then the monkey comes back and hits the gong in the middle of the wheel which reveals the number of free spins you have won. During the feature, an extra scatter symbol is added to increase your winnings: the pig. When you have played all your free spins, you go back to the regular game and the wins are added to your account.

Chinese New Year slot is a medium volatility slot - the bonus features do not trigger very often though but the payouts are decent. I’ve had my biggest returns in the free spins feature with just over 220 times my stake. Hopefully the Chinese New Year slot will bring you good luck and hours of fun. If you like Play ‘N Go slots, I recommend their flagship Riches of Ra game. If you like Chinese-themed slots, you should try the land-based favourite Choy Sun Doa by Aristocrat.
