Asian game producers have become so successful that one starts to recognise mythology, characters and themes that are common over there. Such is the case with He He Yang, which takes the famous Cai Shen from the folktales, and brings him as a character of luck on the reels.
But it’s not all about the theme, as you’ll have plenty of other reasons to give a spin or two. Your lucky wins become even luckier if you manage to hit one of the jackpots. Collect the coins and find out what else is going on here...
Theme and Symbols
RubyPlay doesn’t take too many liberties with the subject matter. You could change the symbols just a bit and this would pretty much be your classic slot...in fact, you’ll find the playing card ranks amongst the symbols. There are plenty of symbols for luck, or what we presume are symbols for luck, such as turtles, fishies, and flowers. Sound effects are very primitive, suggesting that this is a slot originally aimed for terminal gamers.
Betting Options and Functions
Though there are only three symbols on each of the five reels you’re still looking at fifty paylines to cover them. Quite a combination, and can require some higher bets to fully take advantage of. Be careful with your bankroll when you start spinning this one!
The variance is between medium and high, which seems a bit weird given the prizes this slot offers. At worst you’re looking at five times your line bet, and at best 150 times the line bet...which is not at all that good when betting on fifty paylines.
Do the special features then change this setup?
Three, four and five scatters award up to 100x your total bet, and then 6, 9 or 15 bonus games. These spins come with 50, 100 or 200 wilds added to the reels. That’s up to 13 wild per spin...which is enough to cover almost all the reels.
Collecting coins is part of the game, and getting six of them at the same time will start the Sunlight Spins. These coins hold their place as three respins are played out. Any further coins hold their position, and reset the spins back to three.
The coins come with either a cash prize or a jackpot prize. If you manage to land all coins on the reels you win the grand jackpot, which is 2000 times your bet.
The wild symbol can also randomly award a jackpot bonus game, where you pick different symbols to reveal one of the jackpot. Possible wins are 20x, 50x, 200x or the grand jackpot mentioned above.
It doesn’t quite deliver if you’re looking for a slot with normal spins with worthy wins. This is a game that banks everything and the kitchen sink on the special features...the problem being, that those are hard to get to, and the bet level is high to begin with. Check out other Cai Shen slots if you’re after the theme, or progressive jackpots if you’re after the wins!
