You don’t need to know anything about the mythological character of Caishen to be able to play this intriguing slot game. Caishen’s Arrival has been depicted in the slot of the same name, and we are about to find out what that arrival could bring.
Even though you won’t see any 3D images in this game, it still counts as one of Betsoft’s creations.
It does have a demo, just as you might have expected it would. Loaded with the usual demo credits, you can’t withdraw them, but they do allow you to give the game a go.
Since we have a character from Chinese mythology included here, we can guess the game revolves around that topic. The design bears this out, too.
That means you shouldn’t expect too much from the background. That said, there are a few neat touches there, albeit faded into the red backdrop. The mix of icons appearing on the reels themselves takes in several Chinese-themed designs, along with standard letters and numbers for the cheaper icons.
The slot presents us with five large reels. They haven’t included a progressive prize to be won, so you are restricted to going for the prizes contained within the paytable.
It makes sense that they would highlight Caishen as the substitute icon. He is powerful too, replacing everything here – the scatter as well. That scatter is shown as a coin purse, decorated in red and gold. Look out for Caishen to appear stacked on the reels – something that has its own potential. You might also see one more special symbol, designed as a Red Ticket. We’ll cover those special features in a bit.
We have 25 lines present in the game, and these are fixed.
Each spin requires just one bet to cover those lines. This could be a minimum of just five cents, or you could choose another value until you hit the maximum $5 wager.
All info about the game is to be found behind the info button. This is located near the balance area.
We mentioned the idea of Caishen appearing stacked on a reel. Should this occur, he appears in full height and stays there for one spin. This is a free re-spin, where all other reels spin again and Caishen stays where he is as the wild reel.
No, you can still secure some of these, and the Red Ticket is the key (or the ticket, we guess) to doing so. Find one on the first reel and one on the fifth reel and you’ll receive 10 free spins of the reels.
Yes, it is quite good at 95.74%.
8 out of 10, to be exact. While we do like to see a separate bonus feature away from the reels – something that isn’t included here – we do get a re-spin along with those free spins, so that is encouraging.
If you want to know what the prizes are, you should check out the paytable. This tells us that five turtles would produce the best line prize, the value of which would be dependent on your original wager.
The demo version is a great introduction to the game, so you can see how everything pans out and what you might experience if you played for real.
Any casino that offers Betsoft games should have Caishen’s Arrival on offer as well.
That covers tablets and smartphones on the iOS and Android platforms.
