Game Facts

IGT’s Gong Xi Fa Cai comes to the online casino world after proving a hit with players at real-world casinos.

A side bet feature lets you play Gong Xi Fa Cai with its Multiplier Feature active to enlarge pays by up to five times.

A randomly triggered bonus game lets you play to win one of four levels of jackpot – Mini, Minor, Maxi and Major.

Gong Xi Fa Cai Slot

The Gong Xi Fa Cai Slot slot from IGT initially taxed our language skills but, if our Google search results are to be believed, its title is Mandarin for “Happy New Year”! That certainly makes sense of the festive, Chinese theme for this game, which sets out its stall with five reels and fifty pay-lines to test your luck. This is also an online incarnation of one of IGT’s real-world casino machines, so if you like the thought of playing a slot you might find on the gaming floors of Vegas or Macau, then Gong Xi Fa Cai has that vibe.

Game Info

Like many Chinese-themed slots, Gong Xi Fa Cai sticks to the essentials of video slot gaming, with a traditional feel. The highest paying symbols reflect the theme, with playing card symbols occupying the lower ranks of the paytable. Assisting your mission to convert wagers into instant wealth, there are two feature symbols, a Wild and Scatter. The former does the usual trick of substituting for all but the Scatter symbol to build wins, whereas the Scatter will bring you the good fortune of a free spins bonus if it shows up simultaneously on the three odd-numbered reels.

Gong Xi Fa Cai’s free spins feature awards eight free spins (eight being considered very lucky in Chinese culture), enhanced by playing out on modified reels that exclude the lowest-paying symbols and upgrading the pays for the symbols that remain. These are also gold-encrusted to further signal their superior status in this feature.

Unexpectedly large wins are also the preserve of this slot’s random jackpot feature. A quartet of jackpots – Mini, Minor, Major and Maxi – can be won should this bonus game suddenly trigger on any basegame spin, and a player pick of on-screen envelopes to reveal different coloured gems decides your reward. The first “Match 3” of one colour signals the jackpot you exit with.

One final feature to mention is Gong Xi Fa Cai’s side bet option. Engage this, and in return for increasing your wager per spin by half, you activate multipliers on reel one. These can range between x2 and x5 values and will apply to any winning result while they are in effect!

Summary

High volatility is Gong Xi Fa Cai’s nature, so if you love Chinese-themed slots and the buzz of chasing very big wins from just a single spin… well, look no further.
