Gameplay, Playability and Volatility
Caishen’s Gold offers a video slot experience that is in line with most other games on the market. It allows for seamless play, especially for experienced players. While it is relatively simple, the 243 ways to win add some extra excitement and the bonus features keep players engaged.
Instant Win Jackpot
The Instant Win Jackpot is a random trigger within the base game. It can be triggered at any point in the game when a wild symbol has landed on the reels. Once it is triggered it gives a random choice, where players can win between 30 and 1,000 times their stake.
The free spins are triggered when you manage to land a scatter symbol on the first 3 reels. This will give you 10 free spins. In the free spins mode all low paying symbols are removed from the reels, this makes it easier to create wins and makes the wins bigger. The free spins can be retriggered during the free spins mode.
Caishen’s Gold has a medium volatility. This means that wins come along quite often, but they are rarely huge wins. This keeps players engaged, so is a bonus for lower budget players, but higher budget players may not be as enamoured with it.
RTP, Wagers and payouts
Caishen’s Gold has an RTP of 97.08% which is above the market average.
The maximum wager of $190 means that high bankroll players will be completely at home when playing Caishen’s Gold. The minimum wager of $0.38 also allows low budget players the same ability to play. The high maximum wager is a plus point, but it is hampered by the relatively low maximum payout of 1,000 times your stake.
Caishen’s Gold: Overall
Caishen’s Gold is an enjoyable game overall. The wins come along quite often which does keep engagement levels high. However, it is slightly hampered by the low maximum payout which could put off long term players. The free spins mode is very generous however, which offsets this negative point slightly. 3.7/5
