In January 2015 Microgaming decided to celebrate the Chinese New Year when they launched Gung Pow slot. The oriental slot is a bright and bold as the real events with animated firework displays, stunning HD colourful graphics and audio that will put you in the mood. The game has free spins, multipliers, scatter wins and a gamble feature – and although not as feature-filled as most other 243 Ways-to-Win video slots, it still has fantastic top payouts to look forward to!
Gung Pow Slot features
This online slot is a 5 reel, 243 Ways-to-Win, non-progressive video slot by Microgaming that has the right amount of features required for lucrative gambling. There is an automatic 10X bet multiplier, which means that your chosen coin value and the number of coins you play will be multiplied by 10 – rather than you having to break the bank wagering on 243 ‘paylines’!
With 3 or more of the Chinese coin scatter, the bonus spins feature will launch. Here you can get up to 15 free spins, with an accompanying instant 3X multiplier. The scatter symbol further delivers scatters wins of up to 25,000 coins, multiplied by your bet staked! You can also retrigger the bonus spins with no limit on the feature.
- Gamble Feature
- Although there aren’t any real bonus games, the video slot does offer you the opportunity to gamble your winnings after every payout achieved with a spin. It is a usual ‘pick a card’ feature that allows you to double or quadruple your payouts by choosing either the red or black card.
- Wild Symbol Substitute
- The wild symbol has one purpose – to step in as a substitute symbol, except for the Chinese coin scatter, to complete payouts. It only appears on reels 2 and 4 though. Uncharacteristically, it also doesn’t deliver the highest base-game payout… The highest paying symbol in the regular game mode is in fact the firecrackers.
Coins and Betting
Coins values are set from 0.01 all the way up to 1.00, which results in a maximum wager of 250 coins, or 250.00 in CAD. You can stick to the default bet of 2.50 but to get your hands on the ultimate prize in the base game of 30k with 5 firecracker symbols, or 90,000 coins in free spins, stick to the higher end of the betting options.
