Year of the Rooster Slot: Multiplying Wilds that Can Increase All Wins of a Single Bonus Spin
Year of the Rooster is a 243 ways-to-win online slot released by Genesis Gaming to welcome Year 2017. Aside from featuring the Rooster as top paying icon, other high paying images include objects such as Red Envelopes, Red Firecrackers, and Chinese Bamboo Plant. Feng shui (fung shway) practitioners often recommend those items as tools for creating balance between good and bad, as well as for attracting abundance or fortune.
The Chinese Gold Coins, popular good luck charms widely believed as effective in magnetizing positive life forces, appear in this game as Wild Symbols. In the Free Games, good fortune has chances of coming true, because some Gold Coin Wilds may reveal a 2x or 3x, or even both Multipliers via a single spin.
Year of the Rooster Online Slot: Wild Symbol
The Gold Coins Wild emerges only in Reels 2, 3 and 4; capable of filling in as substitute icon for any regular paying symbols aligned with a wild card.
Since its appearance is limited only to the three centre reels, the Gold Coins icon cannot form a winning combination. But in the free games, a random Wild Symbol currently in position may reveal a 2x or 3x Multiplier. The factor revealed, will then apply to all wins generated by the triggering spin; not at all limited to payouts earned on Wild-completed groupings.
Year of the Rooster Online Slot: Free Games
The icon with Chinese characters for Rooster represents the Scatter Symbol that can trigger a round of free games. A spin outcome that displays three, four or five Scatters anywhere across the reels, triggers the activation of 8, 15, or 20 Bonus Spins. During the round two Scatters can retrigger five free-spins, while 3 or more retrigger the same number of free games.
In addition to the Bonus Spins, Scatter Bonus Wins equivalent to 80, 400, or 800 will be awarded; but only on the longest combination of Chinese Character Scatters occurring after a spin.
The Free Games are played on a different set of reels, one in which some Gold Coins Wild Symbols are configured to reveal a 2x, or 3x Multiplier. It is possible to land on more than one Wild Multiplier, and such an event will be more advantageous for lucky Year of the Rooster slot players.
Here, the factors will first multiply in value, which further increases all payouts gained from the spin that produced the win-multiplier. Supposing three Gold Coin Wilds on display altogether revealed a 3x Multiplier, the Win-Multiplier applicable to that particular win-event will be 27x (3x. 3x. 3x).
Year of the Rooster Online Slot: Betting Options
All 243 ways-to-win patterns are active during each play. The game requires stakes of 25 coins on every spin to cover all pay patterns. Players can choose from 0.01, to 0.02, 0.03, 0.05 or 0.10 as coin value, which multiplies the 25 coins to arrive at the Bet per spin.
The lowest Year of the Dragon wager on each spin therefore is 0.25 (25 paylines x 0.01), while the highest or Maximum Bet staked per spin is 2.50 (25 paylines x 0.10).
