Chinese New year is still several months to go from now, but this Chinese New Year game from Play'nGo has been around for about 2 to 3 years, only that I have not played it until very recently. Generally speaking, Play'nGo games tend to be either good or bad for me, don't ask me why, but that's how things are naturally. I have a few Play'nGo games that have been good to me, but I also have a few that were completely disastrous whenever I played it. As for this game, well, all I can say for now is that it wasn't that bad and it wasn't that good either. Only more plays on the game could determine which one it would be, but for now, I'll skip finding that out.

The graphics in the game are pretty nice but not outstanding, and all the symbols in the game are taken from the Chinese zodiac animals. Not surprising of course, since the Chinese New Year is based on Chinese Astrology. The Tiger, the Wild symbol, pays a nice 5000x the line bet for getting 5 of them, but the Bonus symbol, the Dragon, doesn't pay anything at all, except to trigger off a Bonus game. The Monkey is the Scatter symbol, also a non-paying symbol, that serves to trigger off the Free Spins game. The other symbols pay from 1000x the line bet (Rat) down to 100x the line bet (Pig) for getting 5 of each kind. Not really a good paytable, just an average one.

To start off the Free Spins game, a wheel is spun to determine how many free spins you can get, and also to determine which one of the animal symbols would become the Extra Scatter. This symbol will pay as scatters and not as payline winning symbol, which improves the overall payout potential of the game. Sadly though, more free spins cannot be won and the Free Spins game cannot be retriggered either. What a waste! I've never liked any game that doesn't offer retriggers, simply because there wouldn't be any further chances of getting better wins. What that Free Spins game pays is all you can get, and that usually sucks!

In the Bonus game, there are 5 fireworks symbols which you need to pick one at a time to win instant cash prizes. Get a firework that doesn't work and that's the end of the Bonus game. This can end on the second pick, but it usually ends on the third pick. If you're real lucky, you may get to pick all 5 of them for the best win of up to 150x the total bet amount. For a Bonus game, that's a nice good win potential. Most other Bonus games wouldn't pay more than 50x the total bet amount.
My biggest dislikes on this game are the non-paying Scatter and Bonus symbols, and the no retriggering of the Free Spins game. It all reduces the additional winning chances, thereby decreasing the excitement in the game on the whole. My best win on the game so far is only a miserable 114x, and it was pretty hard even to get any wins exceeding 50x my total bet amount. Not a game to my liking, unfortunately.

Chinese New Year is a video slot game from Play N` Go. The first time I played this game I started placing bets that were only 0.15 euros per spin. I wanted to test the slot first and see if it is worth the risk or not. I continued playing for an hour and still did not raise my bet. I got some kind of vibe that if I raise the bet I will start losing the money, so I wanted to play safe. I had a good gaming experience and my balance was going up and down but nothing drastically though.

Chinese New Year is a 5 reels and 15 pay lines video slot game and the theme is more than obvious a Chinese one. The highest paying symbol in this game is the tiger. If you are lucky enough to get 5 on an active pay line your balance will increase, actually it will be multiplied by 5000 x your bet. I never got more than 3 tigers on an active pay line and this win is not that bad either.

There are 2 features in the Chinese New Year video slot game. Most of the times I was activating the Firework Bonus feature. You need 3 dragon symbols, and they appear only on the third, fourth and the fifth reel. Then you have to shoot fireworks where it is possible to win 150 x bet. I never won anything higher than 30 x bet and I activated the feature numerous times.

The monkey symbol activates the free spins feature. I managed to activate this bonus round only once. I got 3 monkey symbols on the first, second and the third reel. This is a very interesting feature and it is not like the simple free spins where you find spinning of the reels only. I won only 20 x bet, so I cannot say that I was happy with the animations because that is not the reason why I play online slots.

Play'N Go is now a known software for video slots. I happened to love a few games of this software, for example: Energoonz and the new comer Golden Ticket! I also love Wild Blood (not at first).

On the look of the game Chinese New Year, this game could me my next favorite game, so I thought. I love the layout and the sound FX but that's all, yes that's correct!
I played this game at one of my favorite online casinos and to be 100 percent honest I think this game could be better, the payout is average (not bad but not good either for a 15 paylines video slot).

The most time I played this game I won the fire works bonus game quite a lot but unfortunately the winnings from it are always disappointing got it, it's too low but it's probably because the bonus round is easy to trigger. On the second hand, the free spins feature is really hard to get. I had a lot of chances to trigger it but it never came, yes never. First I thought it was just bad luck but I have played this game about 8 times and none of those gave me a free spins bonus round, none. We all know that Thunderkick's games have low payout and sometimes the bonus rounds most of the time disappointing and you know what? I'd rather play those game than play Chinese New Year.

It's almost the worst game ever but that's my opinion, maybe other people had more luck than I am. Sadly I had to add this game to my worst online video slots list. Don't get me wrong, Play'n Go is a great software but not all of their games is great. I find Thunderkick is a little bit better than Play'n Go.

I would not recommend this game to my friends or my fellow gamblers but if you don't believe me my advice to you is to try this game but play with the lowest bet (with max paylines of course).

5 stars!

There are lots of things to like about the appearance Chinese New Year slot but the first impression definitely how cute it is. My main concerns with such game is that no matter how like what I see but if it doesn’t make me believe it’s still a serious gambling partner, well, that product is not for me. Fortunately, it’s not the case with this Play’n’Go slot. It can prove me at times and did that despite the fact it has a fantastic and very charming graphics. Strangely the characters don’t have any Chinese or Asian decorations or specific signs and they seem as they just were from a cartoon movie but they are very well drawn as they illustrate the animals of the Chinese astrology. Snake, horse, rat, pig, rabbit and the other animal symbols are all cute and very tempting and just to be authentic the background music and the pagoda-like building in the background makes the big picture complete. For some players the interface of the game can be little childish because of the cartoon characters but somehow in my eyes this whole appearance is more beautiful than to be infantile so this is not just not a problem for me but in my opinion with such pictorial solutions the game became more powerful in visualization.

The 15-line product has decent game qualities but none of its sections will make you saying ‘Wow’. Tiger icon substitutes for other symbols without extra multiplying quality and also has the task to from the available best paying line and handover 5000 times of line bet prize. Whacky Monkey serves the game as Scatter and at least 3 of them are needed to start the free spin feature and after paying 5 times of total bet just by appearing a little Wheel of Fortune spin with the animals is made to determine the number of free spins and what figure is going to play the part of Extra Scatter.

My latest memorable section was when I won 15 free spins and Horse was the Extra Scatter. During the extra games this symbol can transform any figures on the table to Scatter and what is the best attributes the wins with Extra Scatters are not counted by line bet but total bet. So when my free spins are completed and lot of Horse icon covered the reels my final won amount was around €130 but I still felt a little sorry for myself because I played that triggering spin with just €0.75 bet instead of my usual stake (€1.50) because my balance wasn’t in good shape before.

I think the fact that the Extra Scatter wins there are multiplied by total stake is a very great feature and really gives high hope for players to something happen but on the other hand the free spins feature relatively rare times shows itself but it’s much better and rewarding than the bonus game. 3 Dragon character anywhere on the reels trigger the Bonus game where we have to shoot fireworks for instant cash prize and the potential top prize here is 150 times of total bet but in my history with this side game didn’t show such great returns and my usual wins are very, very far away from that amount.

I’ve got nothing but very positive things to say about this game. I love very much the amazing appearance and the very cute animal pictograms and at the same time I also can satisfied with the game features, qualities and rewarding system. I’m not saying it’s a perfect game but for my taste and style it is very close to this and that’s why Chinese New Year became my favourite Play’n’Go slot and my No. 1 target if I play where this game is available to play. Strongly recommended product.
