Low value symbols are represented by playing card royals, with Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces able to appear. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.08 and x0.32 the player’s bet. 

Moving up the paytable, gold dragon turtles, money trees, boats and Caishen – a mythological figure of Chinese folk law – depict the high value symbols, providing wins between x0.08 and x1 the player’s wager. 

Gold bonus coins can drop into play, displaying prize values that range from x0.4 to x12 the player’s bet. Landing six or more coins on the same spin will activate the hold-and-win feature, where these coin prizes can be won. 

Additionally, flower-shaped coins can appear, acting as collect coins. If one of these collect coins lands alongside five or more prize coins, the hold-and-win feature will be activated. 

However, if the collect coins appear beside one to four prize coins, those coins’ prizes will be collected and awarded to the player at the end of the spin. 

Each reel can also contain stacked mystery symbols, revealing identical random low or high value symbols across the board to increase the win potential. 

Red ‘extra win’ symbols can only appear during the hold-and-win feature, collecting the values from a random number of prize symbols across the board and awarding the total to the player.

Once this has occurred, the extra win symbol will transform into a standard prize symbol. 

Green wild symbols are available, substituting for all symbols other than the prize coins, collect coins and extra win symbols. These wilds can only appear on reels two, three and four. 


In the hold-and-win game mode, players are given three spins on an empty reel set where only the triggering prize symbols start on the board. 

During the three spins, additional prize, collect and extra win coin symbols can land on the board. Each symbol that does drop into play will reset the number of spins to three. 

Only one collect symbol can appear across the feature, collecting all symbols that have previously dropped into the game mode, while also collecting the values of any subsequent prize coins that appear. 

While prize coins can appear with monetary or jackpot prizes. Jackpots that can be won from prize coins include mini (x15), minor (x30) and major (x200) prizes. 

Once the three awarded spins have been completed, the player will receive the accumulated value of all collected symbols that have dropped into play. If the board becomes filled with prize or collect symbols, the grand jackpot prize of x2,000 will be awarded. 

Players can buy access to the hold-and-win game mode for the price of x50 their stake, or to the hold-and-win game mode with a guaranteed collect symbol for x70. 


Jonathan Crook, Account Management Team Lead of Betsoft Gaming, stated: “This game combines the allure of Chinese mythology with the high-quality gaming experience that Betsoft is known for. We are confident that players will enjoy the dynamic gameplay and the opportunity to win significant rewards.”
