The introduction to Master Chen’s Fortune Slots is fantastic. The red background lends itself to the highlighted slot machine that you will be playing. The intro tells you that all wins are paid left to right and right to left; that you can win over 1150xs your bet; and winning combinations with substituting wilds that are multiplied by 2xs. The slot game itself is beautifully rendered and very colorful. The black background of the slot gives a superior richness to the symbols in the game.
About the Game
There is an Auto Play button available as well as a Turbo Spin button when you use the space bar. The small “i” at the bottom left of the slot will take you to the pay table. We encourage you to red the 5-page pay table as it contains all the symbols, payouts, any special features, and rules of the game. Note that you can play up to 10 coins per line, with a coin value as high as 50 cents.
Playing the Game
As noted in the opening paragraph, all symbols will pay left to right and right to left. However, if you get all five symbols, they are only paid once in one direction. There are two important symbols in this game. Master Chen is the wild symbols and substitutes for all other symbols to form winning combinations. He will appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 only. All wins in a combination with a wild will pay out 2xs your bet. Note that Master Chen only has to appear once to pay out 2xs your bet. The Chinese symbol is the scatter and will be present on all reels. What truly surprised me about this game is that there are no special features. Basically, the symbols and payouts are on the first page of the pay table only, and the other four pages consist of the rules of the game. The symbols are low-paying, therefore in order to win over 1150xs your bet; it appears you would have to count on the two major symbols; the wild and the scatter. As I played this game with the max number of lines at .50 per line, the payouts increased exponentially. Moreover, when you do bet the max, the payouts change in the pay table. For example, 5 cats will win you 25,000; 5 money trees will garner you 12,500; 5 oranges and coins will win you 6250.00; and five green jars will pay out 3750.00. Unless you know that the payouts change when you up the ante on your bets, you will be playing for peanuts. So please read the pay table and adjust your wagers accordingly.
Master Chen’s Fortune Slots is great for beginners. It is an easy game to play and the payouts can be quite high if you bet the max which, in this game, is $45 per spin over all 9 lines
