Caishen’s Arrival Slot review
It’s a wealth themed game, Chinese themed and it’s offering a huge potential payout, of up to 10,000x total stake.
Coming from Betsoft, seeing a slot machine with a good design and awesome potential is not a surprise, though lately the developer doesn’t have as interesting stories to tell, as it once had. The Chinese wealth related theme is a great example of that, this being one of the most common story choices they could’ve gone with, particularly for the Chinese market. Still, theme aside, I think you will appreciate the graphics quality, it’s at their usual high level. Caishen, the god of wealth, is the main character and symbol. Other relevant images shown on the reels range from Red Tickets, to Coin Purses, Turtles, Gold Ingots, Money Trees, Noise Makers, Gold Bells and Pots with Gold Coins. Eventually, you reach the less exciting side of the paytable, the one with the Royals. Those don’t look customized in any way, and in fact they have a dated look that ruins the overall good first impression.
Caishen’s Arrival will feature 5×3 reels, where 25 lines form combinations left to right. Mentioning top wins of up to 10,000x total stake ($50,000), the game is impressive in at least one way, and it manages to fulfill the promise of the wealth god. Otherwise, it’s got a below average RTP of 95.74%, and as features it uses wild reels, stacked wilds, re-spins, free spins and scatters.
You select whatever wager you want to use, from the bottom list of options. The range of the bets is between $0.25 and $5 there, so you spend up to $0.20 on each line.
Caishen himself will be part of the wild symbol, which you can get stacked on the reels. Land three together, to cover the reel with wilds, and then get a free re-spin as well. Obviously, the wild reel locks for the re-spin, while the others change.
Land two Red Ticket scatters, on the 1st and 5th reels, and the game will offer you access to 10 free spins.
Coin Purse scatters need to land 3+ times, so that you can get rewards of up to 400x total stake from them. For this feature, the Caishen Wild serves as an additional scatter, so it boosts your wins.
If it wasn’t for that low RTP and common theme, Caishen’s Arrival could’ve been a lot better. Even as it is, having a 10,000x top jackpot to go after is no small thing.
