Cai Hong Slot Game Review
Cai Hong is a video slot from Real Time Gaming (RTG for short), and the game centres around a cheeky-looking Chinese Emperor - whose funny smile makes for quite interesting and exciting gameplay!
Now, as we’ve seen with most of RTG’s slots in recent years, Cai Hong has a special attention turned towards its graphics, and this ensures you can enjoy the action of the slot in a way that looks good.
It’s also built using HTML5 technology, and helps to ensure that you can enjoy the game’s action from both your desktop computer/laptop, as well as your mobile devices, including phones and tablets.
Now, in terms of the symbols you’ll see on the reels; Cai Hong combines both lower-paying symbols and higher-paying symbols, and the lower-paying symbols include playing card values, including 10, jack, queen, king, and ace.
The game’s higher-paying symbols are all game specific symbols, and include a Rabbit, a Rooster, an Ox, a Tiger, and a Rabbit - all of which are, of course symbols depicting Chinese years - and there’s also Caishen, the smiling God of Wealth, who’ll multiply any wins you manage to make using him, as he’s a wild symbol.
Like most RTG slots, Cai Hong’s main feature round is a free-spins bonus, and in order to trigger this, you simply need to land 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view.
Once you’ve landed the scatter symbols you’ll be awarded a set number of spins. You’ll be awarded 10 free-spins for landing 3 of the scatter symbols, while landing 4 or 5 of the scatter symbols will award you with 20 and 30 free-spins respectively.
During the free-spins, you can enjoy a multiplier of up to 10X. Each time you make a win, a multiplier between 2X and 10X will randomly be applied to your wins - and while this may not sound particularly exciting, you’ll find that the wins can actually add up pretty quickly and fast, especially if you’re lucky enough to land the 10X multiplier.
Of course, again, as with most of RTG’s slots, it’s possible to re-trigger the free-spins round, and this is achieved by landing another 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view during the bonus round.
Doing so awards a further 10, 20, or 30 free-spins - and there’s no upper-limit on the number of times you can re-trigger the bonus round.
Pros: The random free-spins round appears quite easy to trigger, and this - of course - makes for interesting gameplay, as it means you can enjoy spinning the reels and enjoying the free games quite regularly.
Cons: Unfortunately, while the game is optimised for mobile devices, it may not run too well on older devices, as it appears to use a fair amount of CPU power.
