If you are looking for a new slot to play to ring in the Chinese New Year (and the Year of the Sheep) then Microgaming have come up with certainly the most appropriate choice of slot for you in Gung Pow.
This brand new slot is a celebration of some of the key aspects of Chinese New Year and it is lavishly presented with vivid colours and exciting animations and symbols bringing this eastern celebration to life like never before.
Running parallel to the game is a fantastic eastern-themed soundtrack which gives the game a calming, zen-like feel and makes playing it a real joy.
So, the design of the slot ensures it has the desired eastern-feel, but how does the gameplay live up?
Well, this is a 5×3 reel slot with 243 ways to win and the chance to win a jackpot of up to 90,000 coins. That is the bare basics behind what is a generally simple slot to play and understand, ideal for beginners, but with enough depth and a big enough jackpot to ensure more experienced players are kept playing too.
To increase your chances of winning, Wild symbols appear on reels 2 and 4 to give you more chances of hitting a winning payline, but it is through the Scatter symbols that you unlock the chance of a big win through the free spins section.
Land 3 or more scatters across the reels and you’ll trigger 15 free spins with all wins subject to a 3x multiplier. This is a good free spins offer, but it is even better when you consider that if you land another 3 scatters during free spins, you’ll retrigger the bonus, giving you yet another 15 free spins.
Then if you don’t think you have won enough in free spins, you can always choose to wager your winnings via the gamble option at the end where the correct prediction of a card can earn you double your winnings.
