Celebrate the arrival of the year of the dog in the lucky New Year, a Chinese-themed Pragmatic Play Slot Machine. It’s a 5 reel, 25 payline game that includes free spins where the 3 middle reels are dominated by huge 3×3 symbols. There is also a re-rotation feature that offers the possibility of getting a jackpot as well as many cash prizes. Join the festivities between £ 25p and £ 125 per spin.
The lucky New Year’s design is traditional: the reels are arranged in a pagoda building and include Chinese-style characters from A to J alongside oranges, drums and firecrackers. The dragon is the first payer, awarding 1, 10 or 20 times your total bet if you win 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. As the year 2018 is the year of the dog, the golden dog is the wild one. It can land on the 5 reels and replace anything that separates it. Reach 5 on a payline and you’ll win 20 times.
The money tree of gold is the cloud. Place it on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the same turn to activate the Free Spins feature. You will then get 5 free spins. Look here for the colossal 3×3 symbols that turn on the 3 middle reels throughout the free spins. Landing 3 scatters will give you 5 additional free spins – there is no limit to the number of free spins with which you can play.
You will also see lantern symbols that carry a monetary value – get 6 or more of them in the same turn and activate the Money Respin feature. The currency symbols are retained and the reels spin again 3 times, this time showing only whites or currency symbols. Whenever a currency symbol lands, the responses are reset to 3. Keep turning until all the answers are exhausted. All cash values are then added and this is the price you will win.
If you’re lucky enough to fill all 15 positions with currency symbols, you’ll win not only all the accumulated cash prizes, but also the Grand Jackpot prize – this is a fixed jackpot of 1,000 times your total bet .
There is nothing too brilliant in the lucky New Year drawing. The visuals are brilliant but not beautiful. The soundtrack is however rhythmic. This corresponds to the features we liked. The colossal symbol and landmarks provide a very decent action. If you want to participate in the Chinese Lunar Celebrations, then the lucky New Year is a very good starting point.
