About Chinese New Year

Although the majority of the world celebrates the New Year on January 1st, the Chinese celebrate the holiday on different days throughout the year, corresponding with the Lunar calendar. Internet betting software developer Play'n Go has developed its Chinese New Year slot to celebrate the legend behind the holiday, and the result is a game that is a fun way to get in the New Year spirit.

Chinese New Year is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot that features a variety of creatures that symbolise the 12 years of the zodiac. These symbols include the pig, rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster and dog. The look of the game is cartoonish in appearance, but the artwork is very well done and is very sharp. The backdrop for the game is an old Chinese temple.

Feature wise, Chinese New Year features free spins, scatter symbols, and a fireworks pick'em game. The firework bonus is set off when three or more dragon symbols are unveiled on the reels, allowing punters the chance to select rockets that pay out cash prizes after they explode into fireworks in the night sky. The second big bonus is the free spins feature that is set off when you get three or more monkey symbols on the reels. Before the spins the game has a wheel of fortune that spins to select an animal, which serves as the bonus symbol during the round. The game has a pretty good theoretical RTP of 96.7%.

Playing the Chinese New Year slot, I was entertained by the healthy amount of features that are present in the game. I feel like the game has a great theme and really hits the spot in terms of offering up a fun experience that fits well with the Chinese calendar theme.

Although I usually don't go for chinese themed slots, recently I gae this one a try and was very pleasantly surprised. I was playing this game at Slotjoint casino with minimum stakes and I managed to get a few decent bonus features that paid from 50x up to 150x my bet. Definitely this is a game I will play more.

This one is another copy of Book of Ra of Novomatic but more unique copy:) Just principle of the bonus game is similar. But i love this game. Fun chineese themed music creates funny atmosphere, i feel like playing a childish game:) But it;s ok. Because sometimes it pays not childish money:) If i hit a bonus game i always be payed good actually. Sometimes even get more than expecting. But at the moment cant tell a very great story because wins in most cases from bonus were not more like 170x bet.

A good game and recommended. As far as I play it looks. So they can't take money from me unless they give a small victory continuously. I don't know when I was lucky. But that still happens today. I often use this game for capital multipliers before trying other games. I think other people will like it too.
