Liu Fu Shou is a Playtech-powered slot game with 5 reels and 5 rows. Playable from 50p to £10 per spin, it has an ancient Chinese theme as its based on the 3 stars/gods of blessings, prosperity and longevity. That’s all well and good as it’s a progressive jackpot title.

The 3 gods have been popular for centuries amongst traditional Chinese culture – colourful in appearance, the game features 6 cartoon-drawn symbols of snakes, monkeys, pandas, dragons, birds and lions. In order to get a winning combination, you need to match 5 or more symbols vertically and/or horizontally.

16 of the same symbol will reward you with the top prize for each animal with the snake giving you 1,000 times your stake and he lion giving you 5,000 times your stake. Once you getting a winning combination, the contributing symbols explode with more symbols dropping from above to fill the empty spaces – this gives you the chance to form new combinations and win time and time again.

However, the main attraction is the Liu Fu Shou Jackpot – you need to get a winning combination of 8 to 25 pandas to win the jackpot. If playing at 50p per spin, you will win 10% of the progressive jackpot amount. Playing at £1 per spin gives you 20% of the jackpot whilst playing at £2.50 per spin gives you 50% of the jackpot. If you play at £5 or higher, you will win the full progressive jackpot.

As far as Liu Fu Shou goes, that’s about it – it’s colourful and can give you a life-changing win but I prefer other Chinese themed games from Playtech such as Jade Emperor and The Great Ming Empire.
