Caishen's Gold Introduction
Based on the Chinese God of Prosperity or Wealth, Caishen appears in this pokie to help you take home the riches. The reels are set at the forefront of a tranquil meadow, full of flowers and trees which all glow in a pink and orange hue. A traditional Chinese banner hangs at the side of the reels displaying the number 243 to signify the importance of the 243 ways that you can win when playing this pokie.
The symbols are all reminiscent of Chinese culture with a lotus flower, fans adorned in dragons, a mandolin and children. At the top of the reels stands a large pot full of gold coins and surrounding it are the names of four different jackpots, but more to come on those later.
Choosing your stake
As with all our other pokies, you should start by choosing how much you want to wager per spin. You select your bet value and the number of coins before getting your total stake. Your bet value can be between 1 and 10 whilst your coin amount needs to be set between $0.01 and $0.50 per spin. There is also a bet multiplier of x38 which means that you are able to stake a total minimum of $0.38 and a maximum of $19 per spin.
The information option will give you the details of what each of the symbols could win you whilst giving you more information on the ways to win. Once you are happy to play, you can go straight for the spin button or choose to play automatically using the autoplay feature. If you prefer to watch the reels carefully, you can choose between 10 and 1000 automatic spins.
What features are available?
With 243 different ways to win, it’s inevitable that features help play a big part of this pokies attraction. The wild symbol, shown as Caishen himself, not only substitutes for all other symbols minus the scatter, but whenever you see him on the reels you could be in for the chance of the jackpot bonus being triggered. If this happens you will need to choose from the symbols to reveal either the mini, minor, major or grand jackpot prize.
If free spins are your thing, then look out for the scatter symbol. Find three or more and you will receive 10 free spins and be taken to the free spins feature. All of the symbols in this are transformed into the special symbols so you have a much better chance of winning big. Whether you prefer to play on desktop, mobile or tablet, this pokie has plenty for everyone.
The graphics are well done and the features keep you interested. The Oriental theme is one that has been done by several pokies, but Caishen’s Gold from Pragmatic Play is one of the few that is definitely worth your time.
