Chinese New Year Slot Review
So, I’m definitely not Chinese (I’m a very Eastern European, Ashkenazi Jew), but Chinese New Year is probably my favorite holiday. Where I grew up, there was a huge Chinese expat community, and they would always celebrate with such gusto. I mean, compared to Western New Year it’s just so much more tasteful and special. Our New Year consists of getting absolutely sh*tfaced drunk, probably vomiting in a taxi that you’ve paid too much money for, feeling sad because you don’t have somebody to kiss when the clock strikes midnight, and going home alone to deal with your hangover in a cold, dark room. Not great.
Chinese New Year is a 5-reel, 25-payline video slot powered by software from Evoplay. I think the theme is pretty self-explanatory so let’s move on. Symbols include Chinese Dragons, Lions, paper lanterns, dumplings, feng shui coins, and other Chinese symbols. The Wild is represented by the Chinese Zodiac calender.
The controls are very straightforward but let’s run through them. Below the reels you’ll find Info, Bet+/-, Coin Value +/-, Max Bet, Auto Spin, and Spin.
So, what features can you expect from Chinese New Year? Wild: Wild symbol substitutes for all others.
After each sequential spin resulting in a winning combo, the multiplier displayed on the multiplier meter doubles. 6 or more sequential spins increases the multiplier to a maximum of x32 on payline wins.
Much like the actual festival, this slot is handled with grace. Expect genuinely lovely graphics, a melodic soundtrack, and gameplay available on any device.
The max coin win is 700 (but don’t forget the multipliers).
Overall, Chinese New Year is a hell of a good time. Expect solid wins, huge multipliers, and wilds in abundance. Grab a couple of dumplings and settle in for a night of big payouts.
