The Chinese theme is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for online casino game makers. Lucky New Year is a video slot that arrives in five reels, three rows and has 25 fixed paylines. All winning combinations are counted exclusively from left to right, starting from the first reel on the left. To make any winnings you need to connect a minimum of three matching symbols on the payline.
Only one win is possible on one payline. If you make more than one winning combination on one payline, you will be paid the highest value combination. The sum of winnings is possible only if they are realized on different paylines.
The Autoplay function is also available and you can activate it at any time. In the lower right corner are the plus and minus keys with which you can place your bet.
About the Lucky New Year slot symbols
It is time to introduce you to the symbols of this fun slot. The symbols of the smallest value are the classic card symbols J, Q, K and A. These symbols carry an identical value. The combination of five of the same symbols on the payline brings you twice as much as your stake.
The symbol of the Mandarin is next in terms of payout. Five of these symbols in the payline yield eight times more than the stakes, while five reels bring 12 times more than the stakes. Chinese New Year’s decoration is the next symbol in terms of value. Five of these symbols pay 16 times more than the stakes. The Lion symbol is the most valuable symbol of this game. Five Lions in a winning streak yield 20 times more than the stakes.
In the Lucky New Year video slot we also have several special symbols, these are the Wild, Scatter and Bonus symbol. The Wild symbol is represented by a Golden Dog. It changes all symbols except Scatter and bonus symbols and helps them form winning combinations. Five Wilds will also bring you 20 times more than the stakes.
The Scatter symbol is represented by Gold coins and the inscription Scatter over them. Scatter only appears on reels one, three and five. When three Scatter symbols appear on the reels, a round of free spins is launched.
Free spins bring giant symbols
You get five free spins. Reels two, three and four merges and turn into one giant reel on which 3 × 3 size symbols will appear.
Free spins can also be obtained during this round. If you receive three Scatter symbols during free spins, you will be rewarded with three additional free spins.
From Respin to the jackpot
Each bonus symbol will carry a certain monetary value or the value of the Minor or Major jackpot. When six or more of these symbols appear on the reels, the Respin bonus game starts. Then all regular symbols will disappear from the playing field and only bonus symbols will remain on them. You will get three Respins to drop at least one more bonus symbol. Each time you drop at least one bonus symbol on the reels, the number of retries will return to three. This round is interrupted either when you do not drop any bonus symbols from three attempts or when you fill all places on the reels with bonus symbols. If you fill all 15 places on the reels with bonus symbols, you will win the Grand Jackpot. The jackpot values are as follows:
- The minor jackpot brings 30 times more than the stakes,
- The major jackpot brings 100 times more than the stakes,
- The grand jackpot brings 1,000 times more than the stakes.
The reels are set on a colourful background and behind the reels, you will see traditional Chinese fireworks. You will listen to Chinese music all the time while playing.
