The Caishen’s Gold slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge of Caishen’s Gold is 2.92%.
Will you get your hands on Caishen’s gold?
Caishen’s Gold is a 5 reel game that doesn’t use traditional paylines. Instead any 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the left side of the reels constitutes a win. This is equivalent to 243 standard paylines.
The ‘Laughing Caishen’ symbol is Wild and only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
There are two bonus features when playing Caishen’s Gold. The first bonus feature is randomly triggered sometimes when you receive a Laughing Caishen symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 12 Gold Coins symbols. Select the Gold Coins one at a time to reveal one of the 4 Jackpot values. When you reveal 3 matching Jackpot values the bonus feature will end and you will be awarded that Jackpot.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive the ‘Scatter’ bonus symbol anywhere on 3 or more adjacent reels starting from the left side of the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins the low symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K and A) are removed from the reels. An alternative set of reels are used during the free spins. Free spins can be retriggered.
Caishen’s Gold is a pretty game and while its bonus features are limited in variety it offers them at a House Edge that’s very attractive. A good game and one of the best we’ve seen on offer from the Pragmatic Play stable.
