One of the most popular themes in the online casino world is the Chinese-themed video slot and Playtech has added to this already crowded field with Fat Choy Choy Sun. Boasting traditional design, it’s a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot that comes with a bonus round where you can choose from between 4 and 25 free spins with wild multipliers that range from between 2x and 60x. Also in play during the feature are instant win bonuses of up to 50 times your bet. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 20p and £500 per spin.
There’s nothing very flashy about the design in Fat Choy Choy Sun. The classical design is very simply done. Joining the lower value royals on the reels are higher paying money trees, lanterns, fish and pots. Top of the payers is the golden dragon which awards 2, 5 or 50 times your bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 of them on adjacent reels. The smiling man is the wild. He can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and substitute for all of the standard symbols.
Fat Choy Choy Sun comes with a Free Games feature – this is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the gold coin scatter on the same spin. You’ll then receive a payout of 5, 10 or 25 times your bet. You’ll then get to pick from a selection of free spin and wild multiplier combinations.
- 25 free spins with 2x, 3x or 5x wild multipliers
- 18 free spins with 3x, 5x or 8x wild multipliers
- 13 free spins with 5x, 8x or 12x wild multipliers
- 8 free spins with 8x, 12x or 30x wild multipliers
- 4 free spins with 12x, 30x or 60x wild multipliers
3 or more coin scatters appearing on the same spin results in a re-trigger and another round of free spins meaning you can get up to 50 free spins with wild multipliers up to 5x or up to 8 free spins with wild multipliers up to 60x.
There are special bonus prizes on offer during the free spins too. If the money tree lands on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin, you’ll receive an instant win award equal to between 2 and 50 times your total bet. This is called the Money Tree feature.
Many of Playtech’s Chinese-themed video slots are simple affair and they’ve kept to the usual formula here. The sound, visuals and gameplay are all very straightforwardly done. The Free Games feature can certainly have its moments though thanks to the potential on offer from the wild multipliers and can lead to payouts of 60,000 times your bet on each free spin (with the potential 60x multiplier).
We liked Fat Choy Choy Sun. There’s nothing overly original here but if you like this theme, then it’s certainly a game to consider. I would also suggest you try your luck with the Goddess of Wealth in Quickspin’s Divine Dreams.
