New slot offers players chance to find Chinese God Caishen’s Gold

  • Casihen’s Gold draws on Chinese folklore, featuring the popular god of wealth as the main hero in the game
  • In addition to 243 ways to win and an exciting free spins bonus, the slot also features four randomly triggered jackpots

Pragmatic Play’s Caishen’s Gold slot is another that tries to borrow from Chinese culture – how authentically is up for debate.

Drawing its main theme from the Chinese folklore, this game offers a rather unique gaming experience and it might help teach a thing or two about a god most Westerners won’t know too much about.

In the Chinese folklore, Caishen is the god of wealth and prosperity, and he is often the central figure of big Chinese holidays, such as New Year.

The god has a tendency to handsomely reward those who please him, and finding Caishen’s favor is what this game is all about.

Wins across the board

Somewhat uncharacteristic for Pragmatic Play titles, Caishen’s Gold doesn’t feature traditional paylines but rather 243 ways to win, meaning that paying symbols simply need to be on adjacent reels regardless of their positions on the reels.

This is not new, but still is a relative departure from the norm.

Symbols you’ll encounter on the reels are typical for these types of slots, like lotus flowers, a traditional Chinese instrument, fans, and Caishen himself acting as a wild.

The music playing in the background consists of traditional oriental tunes, giving this game even more authenticity.

Share in on Caishen’s generosity

The game’s main feature is the free spins round triggered by three scatters appearing on the first three reels. During free spins, all low-paying symbols (playing cards) are removed, significantly improving your chances of a big win during the bonus round.

But, even during the base game, Caishen’s Gold will keep your attention because every spin can potentially be the big one.

This is because the game features four non-progressive jackpots, and every time a Caishen wild symbol lands on the reels, the jackpot game could be triggered.

During the game, you’ll click on the symbols to reveal the jackpot hidden behind them, and once you uncover three of the same, you’ll be awarded the respective jackpot.

This addition might be good for players who enjoy slots with big potential payouts and don’t mind a bit of variance.

The return to player (RTP) on the slot is a fairly healthy 97.08% meaning for every 100 coins staked, your average return will be 97.08 coins.

Where you can play

Not too many online casinos host Pragmatic Play games currently, but Caishen’s Gold went live exclusively with Betsson and will be available at other online casinos from September 14.

LeoVegas Casino however does offer Pragmatic Play games, and may host this slot when it is widely released.
