Make the Chinese New Year festivities go off with a bang courtesy of Lucky Little Gods. Created by Microgaming, this 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot comes with a variety of base game scatter bonuses that can award up to 100 times your stake. Also on offer is a free spins round where reels 1 and 5 are wild. Stakes range from between 30p and £300 per spin.
With the possible exception of ancient Egypt, there are few more popular locations for a video slot that China. This game from Microgaming is a little different from many Asian-themed games as far as visuals are concerning, offering a nice mix of new and old.
The setting here is a traditional Chinese palace which is misted in cloud. On the reels you’ll see 4 lower value Chinese letter symbols, 4 manga-style cartoon characters and a wild. The base game action is spiced up thanks to the presence of a selection of scatters that offer different rewards when you hit them on different reels.
Golden Tree Scatter Bonus feature – land the Golden Tree scatter on reel 1 or 5 and the tree will spring into life and start dropping coins which can total between 1 and 15 times your stake.
Treasure Pot Scatter Bonus feature – the potential rewards are even better if you find a Treasure Pot scatter on reel 3. A payout of between 20 and 100 times your total stake is then awarded.
Little Gods Bonus feature – even if your spin is a loser, you could still end up with a special bonus. Look out for the fish and fruit gods which can award a consolation prize of between 4 and 40 times your stake.
Free Spins feature – the main feature offering is triggered by landing 3 or more of the Firecrackers scatter on the same spin. Your reward will be 8 free spins. Land a scatter during the feature and another free spin is added to your tally. Boosting your winning chances here are the stacked wilds that are present on reels 1 and 5 throughout.
With so many Chinese-themed video slots on the market already, it’s hard to stand out. Microgaming has made a pretty good go of it here. The unusual design works well and the instant win bonus features from the scatters liven up the base game. The best opportunities come via the free spins round though thanks to the ever-present stacked wilds on the 2 outer reels.
If you’re looking for a game to see in the Chinese New Year then you could do worse than say ‘Gung Hay Fat Choy’ with Lucky Little Gods. If you prefer something more hard-hitting, Microgaming’s Immortal Romance is 1 to play.
