Read the name of this slot game from RTG and you would probably believe that it has a lot to do with the orient. After all, it does sound very eastern. As it happens, there is some of that influence in this RTG offering, although potentially not the kind that you would expect. The soundtrack does have a very authentic flair to it, although the overall theme seems to favour fluffy animals. There is, however, method behind this imagery. You see, these animals all make up part of the Chinese calendar, representing various different years.
You’ll get to see symbols of the dog, hare, bull, rooster and tiger appearing on its reels. And the graphics that this developer has chosen to use make it a very visually appealing slot, too. There’s even a rainbow on display in the background appearing amongst the sky and clouds. The question is, does Cai Hong live up to any sort of hype?
Well, the answer to that is yes, but before we get into its special features and perks, let’s take a look at the base game. This is made up of five reels and three rows for you to play through, and RTG has also chosen to add a set of 30 paylines into it as well. These lines have all been set in position so you’ll always be wagering on 30 of them, however, you can still customise the value of a bet simply by using the plus and minus buttons. These dictate the coin value per line, with options between the minimum of 1p per line and the maximum of 10p. This means that the highest overall bet possible in Cai Hong is £3 per spin.
The God of Wealth symbol is what represents this slot’s wild, and he’s quite the character to bring into view. To begin with, his first procedure is to substitute for all the other standard symbols in the game.
This can, of course, assist you with forming winning combinations, but that’s not all, because if he does contribute towards a win of any kind he will ensure that the pay-out is also doubled.
You’ll also see a symbol featuring a rainbow and some Chinese symbols in front of it. This is the slot’s scatter which can appear in any position and still reward you with a pay-out.
If you manage to spin five of this one into view anywhere, your in-play stake will receive a multiplier of 500x. This symbol is also responsible for triggering the game’s free spins round.
All you need to do to access Cai Hong’s free spins function is spin three or more of the rainbow scatter symbols into view across the reels. You’ll get eight free spins from the game by doing so.
Prior to this round beginning though, you’ll get two, three or four bonus picks, depending upon how many scatters resulted in the free spins round being activated. These bonus picks can reward you with extra free spins and win multipliers. In fact, up to 33 free spins can be won, while the multiplier can increase up to a maximum of 15x.
Cai Hong is one of those games that is exceptionally appealing from the first moment that you load it up. The graphics stand out a lot, while the betting options make it suitable for different budgets. When you get to see the special features come into play things get even better – wild symbols with double multipliers and up to 33 free spins are always perks that can be appreciated. On the whole, Cai Hong makes a great addition to the RTG catalogue of games.
