Gold Coin of Luck
The Emperor with Gold Coin can appear only during the New Year bonus, and for each Emperor holding the Gold Coin symbol you will receive a bonus win that is equal to the value of your bet.
The track going around the grid offers 10 different check points, and each check point is in fact the Bonus event that takes place during the race. With each winning spin, you will be offered a fortune cookie, and each one will reveal a number between 0 and 6. The numbers in fortune cookies signify how many spaces forward you will move on the Astral Race Track.
If fortune cookie leads you to stop on either of the checkpoint spaces you will trigger the corresponding bonus round. When you either pass the finish line or stop on it, you will get a chance to take part in the New Year of the Emperor celebration where all the animals will be present.
As already mentioned, the Track has 10 checkpoints – the Feast bonus, the Dip bonus, All Together bonus, Double Wheel bonus, Halfway bonus, the Celestial Flight bonus, From Leap to Leap bonus, the Forced Swim bonus, Increasing Wheel bonus, and the New Year bonus.
The Feast round will let you select at least 5 dishes for the Pig, and get the chance to win a reward that is between x1 and x25 your bet. The Dip awards 5 spins and you may see the Dog respin some reels at random at the end of each of those games. All Together round lets you find your way through river with 5 steps and win at the each step. Double Wheel gives you a spin at the fortune wheel to win the multiplier value to multiply with your bet for both wheels. Halfway round awards 5 spins during which you will get to see all Wilds appear in stacks of 5.
The Celestial Flight round comes with 5 spins and with each new spin the Dragon can cross the grid and leave behind a trail of Wilds. From Leap to Leap you will see winnings distributed over the reels, and you must move the Rabbit, across logs, from one river bank to the other to receive the biggest win, and you have 5 lives to attempt doing so, just be careful, the logs are tricky and can drown easily. The Forced Swim gives you 5 spin and you can see the Tiger bringing walking Wild onto the grid with each spin. Increasing Wheel lets you spin a triple progressive wheel for multipliers. Finally, The New Year round offers 15 spins during which the winning symbols will trigger cascades, and you will get a chance to benefit from the Emperor Gold Coin symbol if it lands.
Astro The Great Race is one of those colorful and playful slots with the pop art vibe that is really inviting. The entire game has a sort of unique design and it seems to be the crossover between the board game and slot game. The RTP is a bit lower than average, and is set to 95.85% but that should not stop you from trying this slot as it really is fun and engaging game.
