Fu Chi Slots
If you're not very familiar with Chinese culture and mythology, then the name of this slot will come across as quite odd to you. Just remember, with a population of nearly 1.5 billion people, it is a formidable culture and a force to be reckoned with historically. Fu Chi is in reference to the much-celebrated Year of the Dog in the Chinese mainland, which has exported its richness to the world at large. You can have a lot of fun with this 5 reel, 50 payline monster of a slot, which is a lot larger than the average and thus offers you a wealth of opportunities - in a probabilistic sense - to win some prize or other.
Fu Chi is a slot of the progressive variety, which means that there's a pot of money that continues to accumulate depending on the number of players, until it hits a crescendo and is released to the luckiest gamer at the end of a round. The smallest coin size that real money players can bet is just one cent; there is a maximum of 5 coins per line for your playing and betting pleasure. With over 50 paylines, it's clear why you should use the option of betting a low coin amount over all the lines - you want to maximize your chances while minimizing your potential losses.
Another feature of this video slot is the ability to win 30 free spins in the bonus feature. The symbols are all weird Chinese characters such as floating lanterns that stay lit, the gold lotus, letters in Mandarin or Cantonese, orange fruit, zodiac signs, and bags of loot. The right combinations of these will help you get to the Free Spins Feature in this Real Time Gaming creation that's the talk of the town in the online space.There's a paytable somewhere in the game - probably on the intro screen - that will apprise you of the worth each of the symbol combinations and the scatter and wild icons.
In addition to the progressive jackpot, there are also two more jackpots: the Minor and the Major. The lesser of the two is obviously the Minor one, and it can give you hundreds of dollars if you win it. The Major jackpot can get you thousands to tens of thousands of dollars if fortune smiles upon you. It can be activated at random at any point in the game; this is in addition to the possibility of winning as much as 30,000 times whatever you put down as a line bet at the beginning of the game. For leisure players, there's an AutoPlay button that can easily be struck, allowing you to just wager, sit back and let the game do the work for you.
A sum total of three zodiac icons will activate the Free Spins Round and deliver some nice extra chances at winning for you. This means you can win 15, 20 or even up to the advertised 30 free spins to prolong your winning streak, should you be so lucky. Also, any win you do chance upon in this round is tripled in value. US players and others are highly welcome to try Fu Chi Slots for a grand old time in the free play mode, or for a riskier but potentially more rewarding chance in the real money version.
