OpenBet’s Chinese New Year Jackpot is the top prize offered on a 20 payline, 5 reel video slot that features a bit of a twisted take on the Chinese holiday, interspersing the various animals that the culture celebrates as having a specific year and making them into reel symbols.
The Chinese New Year game actually features three levels of jackpots, with the game offering a Mini, Midi, and Mega prize for players to pick up. The jackpots are picked up when you turn up three (Mini), four (Midi), or five (Mega) jackpot symbols on the reels.
Chinese New Year has an assortment of reel symbols, including the rooster, tiger, pig, dragon, monkey, horse, dog, ram, hare, snake, ox, and snake. The symbols all have their own pay amounts, and the game’s Jackpot Symbol is a wise Chinese man, who doles out big wins on the reels. In addition to the Jackpot Symbol, the game also includes Scatter and Wild symbols. Players who reveal three or more Scatters on the reel set off the free spin feature with a super wild reel. The Wild Symbol allows for players to see wins multiplied by either 2x, 5x, or 10x the value of the standard win.
While the Chinese New Year slot may feel a bit antiquated in terms of presentation and graphics, the game does an acceptable job of being enjoyable, and the big progressive jackpots tied to the game really makes it worth keeping an eye out for.
