Follow the lucky cat into a Far-East landscape full of prolific creatures in the latest title from BGaming, Maneki 88 Gold.
Maneki 88 Gold is a 5×3 reel slot with 243-payways and bonus features including scatters and golden symbols.
Maneki 88 Gold uses a bet of 1.14 FUN to demonstrate its playtable, so for the purpose of this symbols section, all offerings will be an example of this value of bet.
Low value symbols in the game come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards with 10 through to A. These symbols can offer between 0.15 and 1.50 FUN, depending on the amount of matching combinations that land on a single spin.
Medium value symbols are depicted as tortoises, birds, pandas and tigers. If the right amount of matching combinations land on a single turn then these symbols can offer between 0.15 and 1.50 FUN.
High value symbols are represented by gold versions of the medium value symbols, as well as a gold fish symbol that has no medium value counterpart. These symbols can offer between 0.3 and 30 FUN, depending on the amount of paying combinations that land in one go.
At the start of the game, players can choose how many of these animal symbols can appear as gold. They can choose between one and five, and the higher the value of gold animals, the higher the stake has to be.
A wild lotus flower is included, substituting for any symbol other than the scatter and only appearing on reels two, three and four. If a player has chosen more than two animals to be gold, then these wilds can contain a gold coin that will be applied to a progress bar at the top of the screen. Collecting 13 gold coins will trigger the jackpot round.
A temple door scatter is also available in the base game, offering a payout between 5.70 and 57 FUN depending on the amount of scatters that land on a winning combination. These scatters can appear anywhere on the reels and three or more will trigger the free spins mode.
During the free spins feature, 10 free spins are awarded to the player, but if three or more drop during any of the free spins, an additional 10 spins will be awarded. The maximum number of free spins during this feature is 300. Only high value, scatters and wild symbols can appear on the reels during the free spins.
Four types of jackpots can be awarded to the player, with a mini, minor, major and grand jackpot available. The amount of jackpots available to each player will be decided by the amount of gold symbols they have chosen to play with. Choosing more gold symbols will make more jackpot levels available.
After 13 coins are collected with gold coin wilds, the jackpot mode is activated. In this feature, players must choose between 12 coins that each have different jackpot values behind them. When the player has selected three coins of the same value, the prize they have randomly selected will be awarded.
