Meet the God of Fortune
Fa Cai Shen is an intriguing pokie from Habanero with a traditional Chinese-inspired theme. Cai Shen (Caishen) is a Chinese god of fortune, and in this game, he bestows great prizes upon lucky players. There is a wide range of prizes to be won, with normal wins available plus bonus scatter and substitute functions and the added chance to win free spins. This game is available to play on both browsers and mobile or tablet devices, making it easy to play either at home or on the go.
Obviously this game is available to play for Free – just like the hundreds of other free pokies we have at Online Pokies 4U.
Fa Cai Shen has five reels and up to 28 paylines for you to select, and regular prizes are awarded for two, three, four and five-of-a-kind matches. The symbols consist of regular free pokies playing card symbols plus thematic additions such as the golden dragon, carp and zodiac wheel, which represent the higher-value prizes. Auto play functionality is included in this game, which causes the game to play by itself and is easy to set up with parameters such as total spins and winnings.

Starting at the top, the golden dragon is the most valuable regular symbol in this game and awards a maximum prize of 1000 coins for finding five on an active payline. At the other end of the scale are the J, 10 and 9 symbols, which all offer the same range of prizes up to maximum of 50 coins. With many winning opportunities and the chance to triple your wins, however, even these lower-value symbols can still add up.
The first of the special symbols is the substitute, which is represented in this game by the head of Caishen himself. These symbols will only appear on reels one, three and five but they can be used to substitute any other symbol except the scatter as part of a winning combination. If one or more of these symbols is used as a substitute in a winning combination, the prize is tripled. After that, the substitute symbol will expand to cover the whole reel before prizes are awarded.
There is also a scatter symbol in this game that serves multiple purposes, represented by the sycee – the golden object on a red cushion. The sycee awards prizes for instances of three, four or five symbols appearing on screen, with a maximum available prize of 100 coins. These wins are added to the line wins and multiplied by the total bet.
The other big benefit of this scatter is that it unlocks free spins. Finding three or more of these symbols will also trigger 12 free spins, which are then played using the paylines and total bet of the spin that triggered it. Although the feature cannot be retriggered during free spins, higher-value bets and consecutive victories can help factor into some giant winnings.
In addition to normal prizes, there is also a progressive jackpot, which is added to the other wins. This special prize is randomly triggered and can be won at the end of any game.
