Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, with nine through to Ace. If the right amount of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.1 and x0.5 the player’s stake.
Golden toads, fish and tortoises depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.25 and x3 the player’s preferred bet.
High value symbols are represented by a golden dragon. These symbols can offer between x1 and x50, depending on the amount of paying combinations that fall in one go.
Red envelope wilds are included, substituting for all symbols other than the two scatters.
Finally, two golden boat scatters are available, with one using an orange background as a standard scatter and the other, with a purple background, working as an enhanced scatter.
Landing three or more orange scatters will award 10 standard free spins, but if one of the triggering scatters is purple, the enhanced free spins feature will be activated.
This release has an additional top horizontal row above reels two, three, four and five. This top row adds one symbol to the reels that it sits above.
Throughout the base and bonus game modes, a pot multiplier is active above the reels, revealing multipliers between x1 and x10 for the base game. This multiplier can go higher during the free spins.
The free spins pot multiplier will start with a value of one and increases by one with every wild that contributes to a payout.
During the enhanced free spins mode, a wild red envelope is guaranteed to land on every spin.
When players win over x80 their stake they will gain the chance to swap this win for 10 free spins or enhanced free spins.
Alternatively, players can buy access to the free spins game mode for x70 their stake or pay x200 for the enhanced free spins.
Furthermore, players can gamble any win between x25 and x80 to enter the free spins game mode. To gain access to the bonus game mode, players must land a spinning wheel marker in the green section of the wheel.
Landing the wheel marker in the red area will cause the player to lose their winnings and return to the base game.
