BONUS GAMES AND FEATURES EXPLAINED
- Wild: The game comes with three wild symbols. These are represented by the Caishen on a dark red portrait, a Caishen on a light red portrait and a Caishen on a gold portrait.
- Scatter: The golden gong icon acts as the game’s scatter symbol.
- Gold Stack Feature: At the start of each spin, one reel position will be occupied by a blank golden spot. This spot is filled by anyone of the game’s high value symbols before the commencement of the game. The symbol that fills the blank golden spot will become the gold stacks symbol.
- Jackpot Feature: The Jackpot Feature may be triggered when one or more of the wild symbol icons appear on the reels. When triggered, 12 ingots are presented on the screen. These ingots will reveal hidden jackpot values when clicked upon. The player’s task is to click at random on the golden ingots until three of the ingots reveal the same jackpot value – the player will in turn win that jackpot. Potential jackpots that the player may hit include the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpots. It’s possible for the player to win a bonus prize in addition to the won jackpot.
- Wild Reels Feature: At the start of a spin, it’s possible for any of the Caishen icon on a dark red portrait to transform into the Caishen icon on a light red portrait or the Caishen on a gold portrait. When this happens, the reel on which the transformation took place will turn into a wild reel. This may happen during both the base game as well as the free spin round.
- Free Game Feature: Landing a scatter winning combination will help the player trigger the Free Game Feature. When triggered, the player is asked to pick anyone of five selections. These are as follows:
- 25 free games with 12 wilds added onto the reels
- 15 free games with 24 wilds added onto the reels
- 10 free games with 36 wilds added onto the reels
- 6 free games with 48 wilds added onto the reels
- A mystery choice of free games with a mystery number of wilds awarded
All reels that have the wild (Caishen on a gold portrait) are nudged so that all reel positions are also occupied by the wilds. Free games cannot be retriggered.
