China River Online Slot Review and Guide

The China River slot game is a real money video pokie game that has been designed and developed by Bally Technologies, a British gaming manufacturer. The China River slot game offers players five reels and thirty fixed pay lines to play on, and it also offers them various wilds, stacked symbols,  roulette and a free spins bonus round. The China River slot game offers its players high quality graphics and 3D animations. The game is compatible with both Windows and Apple computers.

The China River Slot Theme

The China River slot, as its name might suggest, has a Chinese theme to it. The background of the game is set at one of the Chinese river banks, and is decorated with fishermen in their boats, various birds, and a jungle of trees, including a cherry blossom tree that will cover the screen in petals once the free spins bonus round is triggered.

The top of the reels is decorated by a golden pheasant, which comes to life as soon as the reels start spinning. On the reels, players will encounter symbols such as Chinese pots, golden pheasants, Chinese symbols, lotus flowers, emerald frogs, gold coins, and the standard playing cards running from the aces to the ten.

The musical background and sound effects aid the theme, but the game does offer players the option of muting the sounds if they so wish.

The China River Slot Wild

The wild symbol in the China River online slots game is represented by the golden pheasant. The golden pheasant wild can only appear on the second, third, fourth, and fifth reels. It can substitute any other symbol on the reels, except for the gold coin scatter symbol.

In substituting other symbols, the gold coin wild symbol can be used to complete as yet incomplete pay lines, form the best possible winning combinations, and give players the highest possible payouts.

Stacked Symbols

The China River slot stacked symbol is chosen automatically before each spin begins. Each reel will contain one stacked symbol mystery position, which will then be replaced by a random symbol. The only symbol that the mystery symbol cannot replace is the golden pheasant wild symbol.

The Free Spins Bonus Feature

The China River slot free spins bonus feature is activated when players land three or more gold coin scatter symbols. The number of gold coin scatters landed will determine the number of free spins rewarded. Landing three gold coins will reward players with eight free spins. Landing four gold coin scatter symbols will reward players with ten free spins. Finally, landing five gold coin scatter symbols will reward players with fifteen free spins.

The free spins bonus feature can be re-triggered when again landing three or more gold coin scatter symbols. The free spins bonus round will come to an end once players have run out of free spins.

The free spins will be played at the same bet level as the spin that first triggered the free spins round. The stacked bonus symbols can come to play in the free spins round and reward players with a total of up two hundred and forty free spins.
