With a heading like that you might think that this Choy Sun Doa slot machine won’t be giving you much to shout about. However this Aristocrat slot is for the lucky few who this god will pay up for.
Aristocrat like to make casino slots based around themes that you will instantly recognise. They have the more recent Red Baron slot, based all round the World War 1 German fighter pilot, and this, the Choy Sun Doa slot game with it’s Asian theme, based around the god of wealth.
That’s not the only similarity between these two slot machines as they are part of the ‘Reel Power’ 243 ways to win slots.
It gives you five high variance reels with the opportunity to win big, but at high risk to your casino balance.
We’ve found ourself many a time watching this old casino floor favourite spin its reels as the koi carp, jade rings, gold coins, gold ingots, golden dragons and the familiar A – 9 symbols produce nothing much in the way of wins.
But we have had a few decent 80x our bet wins in the base game, with the help of the happy god chappy acting as the wild symbol, to know more is possible. Infrequent but very much possible.
It’s true that it’s hard to feel like you’ll walk away with a fortune, like you can on some of the hard hitting WMS slots with features that seem just within reach.
And whilst we’d argue that the Choy Sun Doa slot has the same potential, the big wins feel a little far away, mostly because you’re just spinning till you get the free spins.
That said, with a decent oriental theme, much like the Lucky88 game, this theme will appeals to a wide audience and knows how to entertain.
Add a gamble feature that allows you to double or quadruple your winnings in the base game to keep things interesting, and you can easily get by till that fateful moment that you trigger the free spins.
Much like a few of the other Aristocrat slots out there, they like to let you choose your own fate. Do you go for more free spins with a lower multiplier or for fewer free spins with a larger multiplier in the hope that one of your spins gives you the biggest win of the game?
Get three or more golden ingot symbols on a winning payline, ie. reel 1, 2 and 3 and you’ll be rewarded with your choice of free spins.
You get a choice of 5 ‘fishy’ bonus games:
The reason you get multiple multipliers is because they only apply to wins where a wild is involved. The wild symbol then randomly multiplies your win by one of the three multipliers.
Like most of the Aristocrat games we have played online, when playing on our tablets we have found them to be slightly more enjoyable. Perhaps because the game fills the whole screen rather than taking up a smaller space online, like it does in the Choy Sun Doa online slot.
Whatever it is, the arcade style sounds, graphics and action on the reels stays the same. With both having a return to player rate between 94.5% and 94.6%. Which compared to the actual land based slot is a marked improvement from its’ 90% RTP.
With the big wins hiding in the free spins, you almost won’t mind waiting for this wealthy god to reign down wins.
With a betting range of 0.25 up to 50 in real money, we wouldn’t recommend this online slot machine for beginners, but for those with a little more experience.
And mostly, if we are being honest, a healthy gambling budget and the patience to wait for those potentially lucrative free spins to occur.
Don’t think that just because you finally hit them after a good 150 plus spins you will be rewarded for your efforts either. This god can be just as cruel and disappointing. Many a time we have walked away to play on some other casino slots as lady luck just wasn’t on our side this time.
Still, there is something about Choy Sun Doa that keeps bringing us back to worship at his altar.Play Now at Guts »
