Choy Sun Doa Online Slot Review
With so many land based and online slots out there, it comes to me as no surprise that the huge and diverse variety of themes employed by slot developers is pretty staggering. As a result, it is not surprising that I come across a slot from time to time with a theme I cannot understand. Even though I have seen Choy Sun Doa slot machine at brick and mortar casinos, I never really knew what the game was all about. Thanks to the age of modern technology and Internet, I didn’t find it hard to find out that the name of the slot stands for the Chinese God of Wealth.
Nevertheless, even though I found the theme confusing at first, it doesn’t mean that I found the slot not entertaining, but on the contrary. The Chinese theme is rather cool, but I think that the graphics could have been better. Still, Choy Sun Doa from Aristocrat software is action-packed with features such as a special free spins feature where you can choose from five different options. In addition, the game comes with good multipliers and the God of Wealth himself can earn you a 30x multiplier. If you like it so far, read on to learn more about the game and its mechanics.
Aim for the Dragon or the Gold Nugget
Choy Sun Doa is a video slot with 5 reels and 243 Ways to Win. Some of the symbols include a dragon, a gold nugget, koi fish, tile, ring and the standard playing card symbols- Nine, Ten, Jack, Queen, King and the Ace. To fit into the theme and complete the mood, the slot features a traditional Chinese new year song about the God of Wealth which I found it quite entertaining.
If you want to boost your riches, I suggest you aim for the dragon icon because if you spin five of them on the reels from left to right you will be given a 1,000 coins jackpot. Another important symbol is, of course, Choy Sun which is the wild symbol in the game and it appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. During the free games, this wild comes with various win multipliers. The scatter icon is represented by the gold nugget and three or more scatters on reels 1, 2 and 3 will activate the free games feature.
Choose One of the Five Options
When you trigger the free games feature, you will be presented with five options. Firstly, you can pick the yellow fish and get 20 free spins. In addition, all winning combinations with the Choy Sun wild are multiplied by 2x, 3x or 5x. Secondly, you can choose the red fish and get 15 free games and the wins completed with the wild are multiplied by 3x, 5x or 8x. Thirdly, there is the blue fish option that earns you 10 free spins and wild win multipliers of 5x, 8x or 10x. Fourthly, if you pick the pink fish you will get 8 free spins and all wins with the God of Wealth substituting are 8x, 10x or 15x. Lastly, the green fish option will give you 5 free spins and whenever the Choy Sun wild substitutes to complete winning combinations, winnings are multiplied by 10x, 15x or 30x. This feature can also be retriggered. Additionally, if the red packet appears on reels 1 and 5, you may win a cash prize starting from 2x up to 50x your bet.
Aristocrat’s Choy Sun Doa has an interesting theme and I liked the symbols and backing music. Feature wise, the big rewards come in the free games feature with the option to choose between five differently colored fish. Even though I found it tempting to go for more free spins, the smaller amount of free games was my choice because of the big win multipliers available when the wild icon forms a winning combination. A word of caution, the game is a high variance one and can quickly eat up your money. Therefore, play at low stakes and cross your fingers to hit the free spins.
