Choy Sun Doa
Choy Sun Doa Slots Bring Divine Riches
Australian digital casino games developer Aristocrat Technology invokes the ultimate luck-bringer in Choy Sun Doa, a five-reel video slots title in their Reel Power series: the God of Prosperity and Wealth himself. Choy Sun Doa literally means God of Wealth, and he is depicted on the game’s Wild symbol as a richly dressed, welcoming Chinese Emperor. Choy Sun Doa appears only on Reels 2, 3 and 4, but he can stand in for all other symbols except the Scatter, and is thus able to create several different winning combinations at once. Players can bet between 1 and 25 coins per spin, depending on the number of reels they choose to bet on.
Unique Payline Arrangement, 243 Ways to Win
Aristocrat games are known for unique innovations, and the Choy Sun Doa payline arrangement is unlike most other slots titles, but a simple and effective system that gives players up to 243 possible winning combinations. Instead of fixed paylines traced across the reels, players activate the possibilities reel by reel. Playing Reel 1 activates all three rows on Reel 1, but only the centre row on the other four reels. Adding Reel 2 activates both Reels 1 and 2, but the other three are still only active on the centre row. This process continues with each extra reel bet. When the player is betting on all five reels, all 15 spots on the three rows are active. Winning combinations must start, as usual, on Reel 1, but the matching icons making up the win can then be on any adjacent active spots, left to right across the reels, which gives the 243 possibilities of five-reel play.
Complex Bonus Game with Big Prizes
The Choy Sun Doa Scatter icon is a Gold Bowl, and to trigger special features the first Scatter must appear on Reel 1. Three or more Scatters, on adjacent active reels from left to right, trigger the Free Games bonus. Three, four or five Scatters will at the same time add a multiplier to the total bet; either X5, X10 or X50. The bonus game takes players to a second screen, which sees Choy Sun Doa depicted in five portraits, each one surrounded by different coloured fish. These all display a different number of free spins, along with a range of possible multipliers. The higher the number of free spins, the lower the range of possible multiplier. When the player has picked a fish, the appropriate number of free spins is triggered, with each win increased by a random multiplier from the range selected.
Bright, Detailed Design a Feature
Against a misty Chinese watercolour background depicting a tree-lined mountain river, Choy Sun Doa presents its icons in bold, vibrant colours. Six low-value Poker symbols, crisply outlined and adorned with Chinese tokens of luck, can be worth up to 200 coins for five of a kind. The five higher-value icons are all Chinese artefacts associated with luck and wealth: a Wallet with coins, a Goldfish, a Jade Ring, a Lucky Coin and a Dragon. Prizes at this level start at 15 coins for three Wallets, and get as high as 1,000 coins for five Dragons.
Other Features that Pay
During online slots Australia free spins, the Wallet icon also triggers random rewards whenever it appears, and free spins can be retriggered. This makes the bonus feature the most lucrative part of the game. Choy Sun Doa also has a gamble feature, so players can try to double or quadruple low wins by picking card colours or suits.
