The new Gung Pow slot is a relatively simple game to play, which makes it ideal for both more experienced players as well as relative newcomers to the online slot scene. It is a 5×3 reel game that offers 243 ways to win on each spin, as well as a potential jackpot of 90,000 coins – should you be lucky enough to hit it.
The first thing that strikes you about the Gung Pow slot is the vividness of its colours. The symbols on the reels, are bright, eye-catching and many are of important symbols relating to Chinese New Year, such as fireworks, paper lanterns and similar. These graphics and animations are enhanced by a gentle Oriental-inspired musical accompaniment that is the perfect backdrop for the game.
Wilds can appear on reels two and four and increase the likelihood of a winning payline when they do, however it is the free spins round where the bigger money can be won and this is accessed by landing three or more scatter symbols across the reels.
Each free spin round sees a 3x multiplier on all wins and 15 free spins, but these spins can be retriggered if you land another set of scatter symbols across the reels during your free spins, thus giving you an even greater chance to win more money.
Finally, when you reach the end of your free spins and have won some cash, you can elect to gamble what you have won. Select the colour of the next card correctly and you’ll double your money immediately.
Gung Pow captures the essence of Chinese New Year and what makes a playable, entertaining slot perfectly and is a timely and fitting addition to the Microgaming stable of slots.
