Deriving from the Chinese New Year celebrations, ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai’ is another joyful game created by IGT. Not to mention its very action-packed nature, having 5 reels and up to 50 different paylines, you’re bound for a good time. Oh, and did I mention that four different jackpots are up for grabs on ANY spin?

Get ready for the Chinese New Year, for we’re going to find ourselves in it for a moment.

Gong Xi Fa Cai is offered on both desktop and mobile devices and offers the opportunity for high rollers to get their fix as its max per spin wager is £750.

If you prefer to for smaller stakes or longer game session, you need not worry as you can set it to as low as 50p. The Chinese New Year is welcomed to be celebrated by everyone, which is wonderfully portrayed by this game, made available for you by IGT.

Look & Feel

Being a very bright and colourful, alongside with a smaller Chinese man to accompany you, this game is made to fill you with joy. The game’s symbols include playing cards between A to 10, birds, dogs and fish. The dragon is the highest value of them all.  ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai’ in Mandarin means Happy New Year, and the title really does summarise the overall feel of the game.
