Caishen’s Gold is a Pragmatic Play-powered video slot which draws inspiration from Chinese mythology and beliefs. Caishen is the Chinese god of prosperity and his name is often invoked during the Chinese New Year celebrations. The game’s music is adventurous and traditionally Chinese, making for an enjoyable tune to listen to while you play. Will you be able to earn the favour of the god of wealth?
And while there are many questions left surrounding Caishen, one thing is certain – he blessed this 2017 Pragmatic Play title with several varied bonuses. On the reels, you will find Wilds, four fixed jackpots and free spins with awesome retrigger potential. The maximum possible win stands at 1,000x your total bet.
Play Caishen’s Gold
Usually, we are not big fans of including playing card royals, but somehow, Pragmatic Play managed to make it work. They are joined by a guitar-like instrument with traditional Chinese decorations, a beautiful light-blue fan with a red dragon on its surface, a blooming pink flower, a little girl, a little boy, and Caishen himself, laughing merrily.
How to Play
The slot is played on a 5-reel, 3-row board that offers 243 ways to win. It uses the same layout the developers use in all of their other games, so it should feel immediately familiar.
The Spin button is in the lower right corner of the screen and the Autoplay option is right beneath it. On the left and right of the Spin button are a minus and plus, used to adjust the wager. You can keep pressing the buttons or use the menu that pops up to adjust coin value and coin per payline manually. Coin value ranges between $0.01 up to $0.50 while the maximum bet is $190 per spin.
Wins are granted by collecting three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, from left to right.
Strategy & Tips
Caishen is Wild and substitutes for all symbols except for Scatters. He only appears on the second, third, fourth and fifth reel. Every time he lands on the playing field, he can trigger the Jackpot bonus game. The title has four different jackpots, so to determine which one you will win, you pick through a 4x3 grid of coins. Match three identical symbols to be rewarded with the corresponding jackpot.
Three or more Scatter symbols from left to right on adjacent reels will grant players 10 free spins. During the free spins, you can retrigger the bonus and that will award 10 more free games. There is no limit to how many times the special feature can be retriggered. While free spins are active, playing card royals are removed from the reels.
If you wish to curry favour with the god of prosperity on the go, Pragmatic Play has you covered. The mobile version plays and looks exactly the same, with only minor changes to the user interface to accommodate a touch screen display.
