Zhao Cai Tong Zi Slot
Now with a name like Zhao Cai Tong Zi there’s probably no surprise to find this Playtech game is another of its Chinese-themed slots. Our grasp of Mandarin / Cantonese is non-existent so don’t hold us to this, but – if Google is to be trusted – we think it means ‘Wealth Bringing Child’ which seems to fit with the cheery little rugrats that populate this slot’s reels. So what wealth of gaming goodies can these lucky Chinese children deliver? Hopefully bundles of joy rather than feelings that a ‘no child’ policy might have been a better idea.
The central playground for Zhao Cai Tong Zi slot is five reels with up to nine paylines in play to pluck wins from the paytable. The player options for betting are a linebet value that can be set between £0.01 and £100, and the number of paylines active on the next spin, so you can play Zhao Cai Tong Zi for as little of £0.01 or as much as £900 per game. Four ‘Wealth Bringing Children’ account for the top-paying symbols on the reels, with the cheery, red-hatted youth gifting 10,000 times your linebet if he appears five times on an active payline.
Turning our attention to Zhao Cai Tong Zi slot’s special features, it – like many of Playtech’s Chinese-themed slots – keeps things very simple indeed. First, there’s a Wild Dragon symbol that only rides the middle three reels, but it can double any wins it substitutes for.
Remembering that the headline standard pay is 10,000 times the linebet that’s an enticing prospect if the Dragon shows up to build that win. Secondly the Zhao Cai Tong Zi Scatter can pay when two or more are in view, although unusually the Scatters must be on consecutive reels from the right or left to count together.
And that’s it. There are no free spins, player pick games or bonus trails to linger around for on Zhao Cai Tong Zi. All the action happens in the basegame, so it’s all about the simple pleasures of seeing winning combinations line up on paylines with this kiddy.
Once again Playtech have kept things very, very basic with Zhao Cai Tong Zi slot, suggesting that that formula is what players really like and want from Chinese-themed slots. It’s certainly a very nice looking slot that plays like a good slot should.
How you feel about its lack of bonus features is likely to be a very personal thing, but if you’re happiest with online slots that make it child’s play to have fun and potentially win big then this ‘Wealth Bringing Child’ should bring a wide smile to your face.
