Bonus Rounds and Payouts
For a 5 reel slot containing a Scatter, Zhao Cai Jin Bao is rather void of bonus features. The two special symbols are a little different to the standard symbols though and they work in the following ways:
The Wild symbol in Zhao Cao Jin Bao is that of a smiling Chinese Man dressed in festive gear. This symbol appears on reels 2,3 and 4 and can replace all other standard symbols in the slot game. The best thing about this special symbol is that it doubles your wins when it assists in creating a winning combination.
Although the Scatter doesn't unlock any bonus rounds or features, it is still unique in that you get paid out for landing as little as 2 Scatter symbols, these symbols also don't need to line up in any particular combination to create winnings. Rather they just need to land on any active pay-line.
The game is enhanced by the high pay outs from the standard symbols which somewhat make up for the lack of free spins, multipliers etc.
- Playing Card symbols
Even though these are the least valuable symbols, they still pay out fairly decently. Landing 5 of a kind awards you with anywhere between 100x and 500x your bet, depending if you landed 9, 10, J, Q, K or A. Payouts of 5x your bet are awarded when landing 3 of a kind of any of the playing card symbols.
Additional Game Features
Picture Symbols pay out even higher. The Koi Fish and Peacock symbols pay 1000x your bet for 5 of a kind while the Dragon pays out 2500x for the same combination.
The highest paying jackpot symbol is the Golden Statue, landing 5 of these in a winning combo grants you a massive 5000x your bet. The maximum amount on offer is 10,000x your bet when a Wild assists in a Golden Statue combination of 5.
9, 10, J, Q, K, A, Koi Fish, Peacock, Golden Statue, Dragon.
The Wild is the image of the Chinese Man in festive dress. He can replace all other symbols in the game and doubles any wins he assists in.
The Scatter is the Golden Hat symbol, it doesn't unlock any bonus features but it pays out for almost any combination.
Zhao Cai Jin Bao is the ideal game for players that don't enjoy too many fussy features. The lack of features is made up for in the form of the excellent symbol pay outs and the fact that you can win both right to left and left to right.
The game's Oriental theme is beautifully presented and portrays Ancient China in a festive light. The simple game-play is effective and easy to navigate.
