Celebrate Lunar New Year with these 8 Chinese Slots
Happy Lunar New Year! On February 1st, the New Year begins in China. And what better way to celebrate than with some Chinese themed slots? Some believe that Lunar or Chinese New Year began during the Shang Dynasty (1600–1046 BC), with celebrations to honor ancestors and the gods at the start or the end of each year. The cultural and historic significance makes it China’s most important celebration as it marks spring’s beginning.
Here at Cafe, we celebrate Chinese New Year with the number eight, thought to be the luckiest number in China for its connection to wealth. In China, they believe the more eights the better, so we won’t disappoint with our eight Cafe Casino Chinese slots.
Looks like your luck is built-in.
1. Lion Dance Festival
The Chinese have excelled at combining massive traditional celebrations with ginormous parties that go back thousands of years.
The lion dance is a tradition in Chinese culture during which performers in a lion costume imitate the big cat’s movements for good luck and good fortune. Our Lion Dance Festival slot is ideal for players who enjoy Chinese art and culture… and a chance to win some money!
It’s a 3-row, 5-reel, 243-ways-to-win online slot with boxes of gold tokens, money, oranges, gold bowls, and more. You’ve got yourself a real party when you land the wild glowing lanterns that could boost your chances of a win. If you spot the Lucky Lion Dancer (Scatter 1) at the party on reels 1, 2 or 3, you trigger the free spins feature with 3 choices of free spins with multipliers. During this round, if you see the Firecracker (Scatter 2) on reels 3, 4 and 5, you enter a you-pick round with exciting prizes perfect for the New Year!
Accompanied by the sounds of exotic Chinese instruments and framed by an ornate pagoda, the Lucky Lion Dancer feels like a trip to Asia’s mysteries.
2. FaFaFa XL
This one is as classic, and basic, as it gets. Simple and enthralling, our FaFaFa XL slot is ideal for some easy and relaxing gameplay. The Chinese revere simplicity, often reflected in their art and their cuisine, which is never to be confused with anything on that duck-sauce-stained take-out menu in your junk drawer. This Chinese online slot is based on the first one-armed bandits introduced to the world more than a century ago; FaFaFa XL has only 3 reels, 4 different symbols, and one payline.
The thing is that that doesn’t mean the payouts are basic. Absolutely not. If you spin the perfect combination, there’s a massive payout of 188X your wager awaiting you!
So, with such simple and quick game play, you can expect hours of good times sitting on a stack of FaFaFa XL cold coins admiring the design and enjoying the music as the money rolls in.
3. Golden Children
Seeing young children smiling, dancing and clapping with uninhibited joy is always a delight to behold in any culture. The next delightful thing is doing that same dance yourself as you celebrate a huge real money payday!
The Golden Children were designed to spread the wealth and happiness among 4 rows, 5 reels, and 100 paylines. Play this free slot in practice mode a few times and you’ll get a taste for the prizes, features and payouts you can grab with the right spins at the right times!
Spin through super stacked Chinese symbols that bring in more big wins, all the while a joyful Chinese orchestra sets the mood for your happy dance in the background. Every time you hit it right, the kids share your happiness with hearty laughter that encourages you to keep going… there are more prizes to win! Look out for the pot of gold scatter that rewards you with up to 25 free spins, and select reels will fill with the lucrative scrolls wild symbol, too!
4. Year of the Ox
Last year ended the ox’s Lunar year to be replaced by the year of the tiger. However, the Year of the Ox will be celebrated daily at Cafe Casino for its abundant opportunities to win beastly prizes and the economic prosperity that thunders along with it.
This Cafe Casino new slot offers payouts to match the behemoth’s enormous physique. It’s a 3-row, 5-reel, 50-payline slot with brawny prizes known to grow a stake by 2,500X! Simply hit three or more matching tens, jacks, queens, kings or aces, or 2 or more red letters or gold symbols and you’re the winner.
In this online slot, firecracker double wilds substitute for other symbols and double your wins! The kanji symbols can lead to up to 20 free spins with an increasing progressive multiplier every time you land a double wild on the reels. With these amazing slots features, it clear the ox just might make 2022 your year!
5. Panda Fortune
Pandas have always seemed nice, gentle, cuddly, and, aside from the bamboo breath, they are one of few animals just about everyone wants to hug.
We believe a warm, fluffy hug from a huge, lumbering panda can be matched by embracing big, lovable cash prizes! Spin the reels of Panda Fortune and you might end up loving pandas much, much more.
This panda kindly shares lotus flower scatter symbols that trigger 20 free spins with up to 64x multiplier on his (her? It’s impossible to tell) 4-row, 5-reel, 1024-ways-to-win online slot. The panda’s peaceful bamboo forest welcomes you with leaves swaying gently in the breeze behind an elegant game board with card symbols, red panda cousins, a few tigers, and a few koi.
This is your chance to strike up a lasting friendship with our always generous and friendly panda in this Cafe Casino online slot.
6. Fortune Keepers
Do not be misled by the name! Our Fortune Keepers are very keen to share their fortunes with you! We call them keepers because they only guard their wealth so lucky players can have a chance to win big every day. And they do!
Luck is very big in Asian culture and it’s built into this Chinese slot game so you can play your way to riches with the Fortune Keepers. Our martial arts guardians keep watch on this 5-reel, 50-line multi-payway slot. If you land the mighty monkey, your payouts are awarded from left to right. The powerful panda plays in the opposite direction… just to keep it interesting. They’re cute but shrewd!
Fortune Keepers has a free-spin round and an expanding wild with separate bonus rounds for easy cash rewards. Our dojo is open 24/7 for you to work on earning your gambling arts green belt.
7. Koi Garden
Koi fish are very special members of the carp family and so prized for their coloring that they are entered into competitions for best in class koi like purebred dogs (that’s a movie idea). Koi breeding is a serious affair to boot. While many associate koi with Japanese culture, it also has a lot of meaning and associations to wealth for the Chinese too.
Enter our koi pond with this fascinating, and quite beautiful, 5-reel, 25-line video slot. Koi Garden is the place to relax watching the water lilies, bonsai trees, cherry blossoms, temples, fountains spin by, while several koi swim lazily through the reels.
Three or more water lilies will take you to the bonus round to pick two to four favorite koi. There’s a unique payout for each fish, so make the right choice. Your payouts can rise as high as 15,000 coins, which gives these elegant and graceful koi enormous value.
8. Panda Pursuit
Meet the happiest panda on earth in Panda Pursuit, a 4-row, 5-reel and 1024-ways-to-win slot online game that pays tribute to this fun-loving, adorable, blissful, and big-hearted creature!
Friendliness is the theme of this game with a smiling turtle, koi, a mischievous monkey, and our happy panda. Venture into the bamboo wilds that can help form winning combinations for you, and watch for the scroll scatters delivering enough free spins, multipliers and unlimited re-triggers to make you as happy as the panda himself!
With joyful and traditional Chinese music in the background, Panda Pursuit sets the scene for fun and frivolity that can often lead to bear-size wins.
