Gong Xi Fa Cai Grand


Gong Xi Fa Cai Grand

This new Asian-themed game on IGT’s large-format Peak65 cabinet features both primary-game and secondary bonus features.

The base game is a five-reel, 50-line slot with many of the same features as the popular Gong Xi Fa Cai Ultra. In the primary game, a major symbol on the first reel can appear with a multiplier up to 5X, boosting any win involving that symbol. Randomly, the symbol also will trigger the main Jackpot Bonus.

In the Jackpot Bonus, the screen displays 16 red envelopes. Players pick until three symbols match to win one of five progressive jackpots—resetting at $15, $40, $200 and $1,500, or a top wide-area progressive prize resetting at $500,000. Alternatively, the envelopes can reveal a red dragon coin symbol that boosts the value of all but the top jackpot.

One of the most exciting bonuses in Gong Xi Fa Cai Grand is the free games, which allows players to pick from coins to reveal a free-game reel configuration—classic (three rows by five reels), or expanded arrays in super (four by five) giant (five by five), or mega free games (six by five)—with all minor symbols removed for bigger wins.
