Pokie Review


Zhao Cai Tong Zi is one of the lighthearted Chinese themed free online pokies from Playtech. The legends of Zhao Cai Tong Zi are deeply embedded in Chinese culture and centre around a child deity who is associated with wealth and making predictions. What better little god to worship via a pokie machine?

The story

By now you know that online pokies often come with a backstory, and also how the pokie game designers are an eccentric and imaginative bunch. This time the theme they have chosen is the story of Shan Cai or Zhao Cai, whose name translates literally as "good with money". It is thought that this child deity was showered with gifts at birth, and for the Chinese people, this has as much to do with good fortune and happiness in one’s own skin as it does material wealth. For the purposes of this game, the God of Wealth will rain down blessings upon the heads of the faithful.

Zhao Cai Tong Zi

The gameplay

There are five reels and nine paylines in this game. The positive, colourful and happy vibe is translated into a fast-paced game with a whopping jackpot of 10,000 times your wager. What's more, the paylines work in both directions, which fits in perfectly with the light and whimsical designs on the screen, which encourage you to think quickly and flexibly, like a clever Chinese philosopher.

There are no bonus games or free spins in Zhao Cai Tong Zi, but there are four cheeky child icons, each bearing a traditional emblem of Chinese culture. These are, in order of ascending value, a peach, a koi carp, a pot and a golden bat. These range from 115 times the bet for four on a payline for the peach, to 500 for the golden bat.

The jackpot

Your luck will truly be in if you hit the jackpot in this game. If you can nail five golden bats, you will receive a handsome pay out of 10,000 times your wager. Bearing in mind that you can bet up to 100 credits a line, high rollers will be counting their lucky stars that this game is so generous. Even if the pinnacle of wins remains elusive, you will still have plenty of opportunities to win significant returns on your bets. Other symbols include a pineapple, a purple lantern, a hanging charm, a red envelope, a red sack and a triple coin. These pay out between two and fifty times line multipliers.

Delightful dragon

The wild card in this game is a handsome Chinese dragon. He appears on the second, third and fourth reels and can stand in for any other symbol. What is more, he magically doubles any win that he plays a part in creating.

Scatter brain

The scatter card symbol in this game is, of course, Zhao Cai Tong Zi himself. As long as he appears on consecutive reels he will give you from a 1x multiplier to 100x depending on how many times he appears on consecutive reels. This happens regardless of payline position, keeping things really simple and very interesting.
