At first sight, I didn't notice this game was a 5-reels and 243-paylines video slot. It looked like 20 or 25 paylines machine to me. But then I realized I was mistaken. This game has an oriental theme, which is a bit mystique and somehow attractive to players. This time it's about Chinese New Year and its celebration. Honestly speaking, it's not so attractive to me and I came across this slot by chance, but as always, I was willing to give any new game a try. Same thing happened with this Microgaming addition. But overall, it doesn't look so nice with its golden colors dominating.

Let's check this festive slot paytable before we make up our minds whether we like and will play it or not. The Wild symbol is 'Paw Logo' and it appears only on reels 2 and 4, not so good though. Another bad point goes for its payout. The Wild doesn't pay for itself, doesn't double, expand and does nothing more than substituting for all symbols except for the Scatter. Very often in Microgaming slots, you will see Scatters that pay 100x your total bet for 'five of a kind'. Here it's the same. Getting 3 or more Scatters will trigger 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. The Free Spins game can be re-triggered, but to me, it seems like mission impossible. I have triggered the Free Spin game by crazy luck, yet I ended the round with empty pockets, with no decent win at all.

As for the rest of the symbols, it seems pretty low. The Rocket Fireworks symbol pay 120x, the Big Crackers 80x, the Lantern 60x, the Sparklers 30x, and the rest down to 4x, all for 5 of a kind. Now this tells me that I don't have a single reason to invest my money here. Instead of being a high variance slot, the way it pays look like a medium, if not low variance to me. And no, there is nothing which could keep my attention.

There are more and more Oriental orientated games appearing now, not necessarily oriental customs or people themed, but including animals and environmental themes. Not that I don't like it at all, I do, just that I haven't found one yet that sticks to me like a glue. Maybe I've been looking in the wrong places, I haven't a clue, but wherever I've been and gone through, none has yet to come true. As for Gung Pow...oh wow. I love fireworks and firecrackers. Used to play them a lot when it was still legal to buy and play them. Not anymore. A written permission from the Police is now required beforehand, but that's out of everyday people's hand. Too much hassle, too troublesome, but even the authorities know how to close their eyes on certain festival ceremonies, and that's a good thing.

The logo 'Gung Pow' is the Wild symbol, appearing only on reels 2 and 4. It is yet another true blue dumb Wild symbol, loved so much by Microgaming, but certainly not by players. The Wild doesn't pay, doesn't double wins, doesn't move, shift or expand, and only substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol. The ancient Chinese Coin is the Scatter symbol, paying 100x the total bet for 5 of them, and getting 3 or more scatters award 15 free spins with all wins tripled. Free Spins games can be retriggered, but don't count too much on it. Symbols wise, the Rocket Fireworks pay 120x, The big Crackers 80x, the Lantern 60x, the Sparklers 30x, the small Firecrackers 20x and all the rest from 8x to 4x, all per total bet for 5 of each kind. A low paytable indeed.

Well, firstly, the overall look of Gung Pow doesn't strike interestingly in any way. The graphics look mediocre, it doesn't look attractive enough, and for those who have seen the paytable, it just doesn't grab players to play the game at all. My first glance at the paytable only gave me a "hmm". Even with 243 ways to win, Gung Pow doesn't have the explosiveness to excite big-win hunters. Casual players may enjoy the game, with its fairly frequent small wins of 5-of-a-kinds, but trying to get wins of 100x the total bet, or more, seems like a damn tough task to me. I've spinned at least 1000 spins, yet not seeing a 70x win at all. The best I got was 69x from the free spins, and that sucks. I simply hate it when out of 15 free spins, only 4 or 5 spins actually paid out something!
As always with most of Microgaming games, new or old, they have hardly ever impressed me at all, except for a very few games. A large number of players seem to love Microgaming games, but impressive huge-winning screenshots are hardly ever from Microgaming games. Perhaps players are being too sentimental, but not me. Realistic and regular good wins are what I'm more interested in, not empty promises of astoundingly huge wins from getting 5 Wild Reels or All-of-a-kind wins, which comes only once-in-a-lifetime anyway. Where winning from games is concerned, I'm not a dreamer. Never will be either.

Gung Pow slot is another game coming from Microgaming software. This is a 5 reel and 243 ways to win video slot. This means that the winning combinations are formed by the matching symbols on adjacent reels. I cannot say what is the theme in this slot but it might be representing some kind of a celebration since there are fireworks as one of the symbols.

The first time I tried this slot I was not happy at all. It ate all my money and I could not trigger the bonus either. I played this slot with 50 cents bets and the minimum you can play with is 25 cents. This is not so bad for a game that has 243 ways to win. This is definitely the cheapest I have seen when it comes to this kind of slots. While I was playing this game I realized that this is yet another game with no potential for any wins. Most of the wins during the base game are so low or not happening at all.

The next time I played this game it was a bit different. After just a couple of spins I triggered the bonus round and it paid me 50 euros. During the free spins round you get a lot of 5 of a kind combinations and with a x 3 multiplier I have to say that this is pretty decent. I did manage to trigger the free spins a couple of times more during my session this time, but it was nothing special. During the base game I had some small wins but they were not enough to keep my balance. After I saw that even the free spins round is nothing special I decided to leave this slot while I still had some dignity and some money on my balance. I would not recommend this slot to anyone. I tried it and I gave it a chance but the game is not paying at all.

Gung Pow is video slot with 243 pay ways from Microgaming software. I like the theme about China, here you can find the Chinese New Year theme. The first thing which I noticed in this game was sound and music. I must to say that i like the Chinese music, the best sounds came when I triggered free spins with three scatters. But later I was disappointed about results.

The base game pays ok, but nothing special. I think it could be much more interesting, most of the time i had only winnings around x3 to x10. Only once I had big win during base game which was around x60 bet size. I had 5 of the kind of some symbol and I liked it.

The free spins feature could be much more interesting. 15 free games at x3 multiplier and in the end big disappointment for me. I had twice this feature and both times I had small winnings. Really small. Never more than x20 bet. I was surprised, I expected more from free spins feature, because it is not so easy to trigger it. My results were around 4€ and 8€ from 0.5€ bet. Do you think this is a cool feature? I don't think so.

Otherwise I will not play it more, mostly because of payouts during free spins. I like the theme and music, but the other things is not so good. I will rate this game with 6 stars.
The free spins feature should be more fun. I miss here stacked wilds on all reels. But you can get them only on reel 2 and 4. And this is also the reason why i don't like this game. If wilds were everywhere, it could provide bigger winnings and i like to play this kind of games. I don't like Gung Pow so much, i played it only once or maybe twice. The payouts during free spins should be better, maybe at higher multiplier too and with better feature. With some additional feature mode or something like that.
Well, Gung Pow Slot is probably strangest slot release together with lucky firecracker, which Microgaming ever made. I am of course probably do not know something, and I am not work at Microgaming, but really, what about they think when release two absolutely same game with only one difference - look of symbols and sounds. I really was disappointed when saw paytable - it is same game, and I really do not understand the thing about releasing two same games.

Game looks almost same like lucky firecracker, I can't say that it is bad, but we all know that Microgaming can made game with much more better design, sounds, and everything else.

Wilds here work with the same way, only on reels 2 and 4, and for 243 lines game it is disappointing, I think most players will agree with me - when you make slot with a lot of lines, be sure to add there some good feature with wilds, like stacked, expanding, or probably something even better. But no, there are just regular wilds, on only two reels. Pointless to be honest, reminds me octopus slot, where wilds also on reels 2 and 4, but there this two wilds trigger feature!

Freespins feature here is 15 freespins with x 3 multiplier, it starting when you land 3 or more scatters. Yes, it is same to lucky firecracker.

I did not played this game much, only 3-4 times until I hit freespins and then leave. I have pretty same results as for clone slot - no any freespins feature with a win more than 100 x total bet, base game of course also never was even close to this mark payout.

I do not like when slot creators have no idea and just release same games, I feel bad about it, because I am always want some new ideas from slot creators, something new and interesting. Probably this is a reason why I am prefer Netent - they more creative.
It's hard to find a reasons to play this slot on regular basis, not interesting.

Gung Pow is a Microgaming software produced slot game. It was made just around Chinese New year, which is also the inspiration of the game. I started to play it recently, in one of my journeys at Microgaming casinos, out of curiosity. That time it ate my whole balance (about 30€) shortly, not giving me any bonus round at all.

As the theme of this slot is Chinese New year, it has bright red color dominating. It also has Microgaming most common details - 5 reels, 243 paylines and free spins bonus round. Free spins can be triggered when you get from 3-5 scatters on wherever the wheel. No matter how many (3, 4 or 5) scatters you have, you'll play 15 free games with 3x multiplier. The good thing is that the free spins can be retriggered. And this game also has a Wild Symbol which is the Gung Pow feature. It appears only on 2nd and 4th reel and increases winnings. That's it about the game features.

Firs time I tried it I got so frustrated, I had 30€ balance and I played with the minimum bets and lost all balance just super fast, without any free spins game. Then after some time I was ready to face this game again. I made a 40€ deposit in one of my favorite Microgaming casinos, placed the minimum bets which are 0.25€ per spin. I set autoplay on 100 spins and again, within my spins my balance dropped to 20€ my only few wins came from 5 of a kind combinations, I got 3 times 2 scatters, but nothing more. I played another 100 spins and I finally got the free spins. But I just can't express how disappointed I was. The 15 free spins with 3x multiplier gave me 0.53€ win. After the autoplay I played a little longer, no other free spins appeared and I lost my balance for this game again.
This game is my biggest disappointment from Microgaming so far. I've never said that I'm disappointed in a Microgaming game but this is it. 1 free spins round within more than 200 spins and with a 2x bet win, I have lost 70€ for this game and I just don't see the point to play it, the scatters for me are impossible to get. I don't recommend this game.

Gung Pow slot is a very pleasant game from Microgaming and though we don’t experience any specialty in its appearance but it is still attractive and impressive. The game chose for its theme ‘Asian fireworks’ and in my opinion every single symbol is very characteristic, well-drawn and perfectly fit to each other. The graphics are great, the color usage is very decent and I really like how the entire interface look like and how its beauty is hidden in simplicity. I think overall this is a very compact and well-structured product so we have got really nothing to complain about here and all we can deal with is just to enjoy the displaying work of Microgaming.

Initially, I imagined 20 or 25 paylines for this slot but the developer thought it other way and make this slot a ‘243-ways-to-win’ type game and though it doesn’t offer too much feature but the game still has some good qualities. The best paying symbol pays up to 3000 coins and generally can be said about rewarding capabilities of winning combinations that they’re quite good. I don’t really like at this game that the Wild has very limited functions and only can substitute for other symbols without multiplying the wins and sadly it only appears on the second and fourth reels. I think this main symbol should have better qualities and I don’t really understand why this icon became so powerless. It should have either win multiplying function of if it doesn’t have that at least it could pop up anywhere on the screen, not just on two specified reels.

On the other hand the only real feature the game offers to win some real big is a very great side game. Getting 3 or more Scatters on the reels means we got an entry to free spins (15 extra games) where all wins are multiplied by x3. This is the segment of the game which has real big potential (up to 90.000 coins) but without winning this high grand prize this segment most of the times are very generous and has a real great game settings. The triggering tendency of this feature is acceptable and I almost always excited when it starts because based on my experience the winning combinations there more frequently happen and it seems the Wild also like to show itself over and over. Though I have never won any worth mentioning amount there but I could collected some nice wins at my level that I could be satisfied with.

I really like at this slot that nothing’s complicated the rules, the game scheme is very simple but the game still has the ability to entertain me for extended times without being boring or one-dimensional. In my book, this is a fine example how a great game can do its job on a high quality level and not requiring being action rich or having numerous features to dazzle me. Starting from the pleasant and simple appearance through the very decent features that have potentials till the very fair and working game settings, everything seems to be a deliberate game segment and all in all it’s really a well-made, cleverly deliberate project that hasn’t got any real shortcomings.

Gung Pow slot brought to us by Microgaming software, this is a fairly new slot since its debut was on January 2015. I recently played this casino at Royal Panda just out of pure curiosity. The game has 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 possible payline combinations with a minimum bet of 0.25$.

I started of this game with a minimum bet of 0.25$ and the slot started off pretty slot I had absolutely no decent wins in the first 15 minutes whatsoever. The couple of wins that I had were thanks to the Gung Pow symbol which is a wild symbol and its substitutes for all symbols except scatter. So I continued playing regardless of the hard start and with a hope I would hit the scatter that would have granted me 15 FS and during those FS all the winnings are multiplied by a factor of 3x and also the free spins can be re-triggered. Besides these features this slot had nothing else, so as I continued spinning I managed to land 3 scatter symbols for 15 FS and after those spins finished I came out with only 2.5$. But still regardless of this I continued playing and I was now hoping more for a five of a kind win since I saw even at minimum bet it is possible to get 100x bet win, for example on that fire works symbol. But unfortunately that didn't happen since it was really hard to get three of those symbols together not to mention five. The game also has a gamble option which makes you choose between a red and a black card therefore you can get win equal to you winning line or double that.

After many FS passed and I still couldn't manage to get a good win I just decided to quit the game before losing any more of my balance. Also the game will give pretty hard a good win so without any motivation from their part it became really dull to me pretty fast. Overall I honestly expected more out of this game and from me 6/10.

If I were to tell the truth, lately Microgaming has become a bit “stupid”. Almost none of the new slots were good. Especially this Gung Pow which seemed to me extremely weak. So weak that hardly deserves a mark of 6. There is nothing new, same payouts, same frequency of the wins, what to say... a total disappointment. Hard to describe this disappointment pretty fair in a review, a disappointment still a disappointment remains no matter how it is described.

Gung Pow is a slot about the Chinese fireworks. This is not the only game of this kind and does not bring anything new. Yes it is true, the music is beautiful (like the banjo music), and the payouts have all about the same value as playing all other standard Microgaming slots. That is, “5 tens” pay 1 Euro. In the paytable “5 fireworks majors” pay 20-30 Euro, but here in all my game I did not had these combinations. Only once in “5 smaller fireworks” gave me 5 Euros. And that was all. 30 Euro lost for about 15-25 minutes spent here is my brief description of the game. And I never have some extra money.

I was always under the impression when I played that this slot takes during the normal game to give then in the Free Spins round. And when with extreme difficulty I entered into the Free Spins (15 in number) I have finished them with just a few Euros. A disaster followed by another disaster. Yes it is said that one can win enormous in these Free Spins, but this has not happened to me. I could be wrong, there were good slots that I was wrong about them but “Pow Gun” never seemed to be extraordinary in any respect. This is very bad, not very good for Microgaming.
In my opinion with extreme difficulty this slot acquires an appreciation of 6 of 10 possible. It does not get a 5 just because it is a MG slot. Like I said, this slot does not impress with anything. Even a longer review I could not write for it and it is not worth.
Not sure if anyone else noticed, but every year around the month January Microgaming tends to release a video slot inspired by the Chinese New Year celebration which is in February this year I believe. It shows they cater to their Asian fans as well, and since Asians are very fond of gambling it completely makes sense business wise.

Last year they released Lucky Koi if I remember correctly, while this year the game in question is Gung Pow. Not sure what it means in Chinese, or if it means anything at all, but it made me think of fireworks.

And that’s exactly how the majority of the symbols in Gung Pow are decorated with. Lots and lots of fireworks to ring in the Chinese New Year. Personally I’m not Asian and therefore obviously don’t care much for it, except seeing some decent potential and prizes during my play.

I’ve had the chance to play this game at a bet size of 50 cents per spin. The minimum is 25 cents, which is not bad if we consider the fact that Gung Pow is a 5-reel, 243-ways-to-win type of slot. Certainly cheaper than other games of the same format.

During my play I couldn’t help being left with the impression that this game is just a filler though in Microgaming’s portfolio. The potential just doesn’t seem there and most wins during base game are mediocre unfortunately.

Gung Pow for instance features wild symbols but only on reels 2 and 4, which just doesn’t seem very noble to me. The game also has scatter symbols (Chinese coin). You need 3, 4 of 5 of those to trigger the free spins feature, which awards 15 free spins and a 3x multiplier.

I’ve managed to trigger the free spins feature a couple of times and one time even with five scatters. Gung Pow is one of the very few games on which I’ve achieved five scatters on. However, I was deeply disappointed with only winning 100x my bet.

Not exactly a DOA type of payout. During free spins my best win was around 75x bet size, while the base game had many smaller wins to keep the balance on a decent level. I think this game is good for clearing WR on, but like I said it’s a filler and certainly not a game with huge potential.

I will probably choose to ignore Gung Pow in the feature, despite breaking even more or less.
Low payouts and not really ever winning anything higher than 100x bet size even with 5 scatters.
