This slot is themed on the Spring Festival or the Chinese New Year, a celebration that starts towards the end of January or February in China and also other countries where there is a Chinese diaspora. The game has 5 reels and 15 paylines. The coin size ranges from 0.01 to 0.25, and you can play a maximum of 5 coins per line. The minimum wager is 15p and the maximum wager is £18.75.
Chinese New Year is a brilliant slot from Play'n Go that has high quality graphics and cool features to help you score some great wins. The symbols include all the animals that represent the Chinese New Year: a horse, a rat, an ox, a snake, a rabbit, a pig, a rooster, a dog and a goat. The wild symbol in the game is the tiger and there are 2 bonus symbols: a dragon and a monkey. The wild symbol replaces all other symbols except the bonus symbols.
There are different bonus games and also a Gamble feature to help you pick up wins when playing Chinese New Year. The free spins bonus is triggered when you land 3 monkey scatter symbols across reels 1, 3 and 5. When this happens the monkey lights up and then spins a wheel of fireworks. Once the wheel stops one of the symbols on it becomes an extra scatter; the monkey then hits the gong to reveal the number of free spins awarded.
Another bonus feature is the Firework bonus that is triggered by landing 3 dragon symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5. There are 5 giant fireworks that you need to select and see them explode; each explosion reveals a prize and this continues till you select a dud. The Gamble feature allows you to double your wins - you can even quadruple it - by making the right choice. Pick the correct card colour to double your winnings or the correct suit to quadruple it.
