Fu Chi, which means “to help” or “to assist” in Chinese, is an exciting new Chinese themed video slot game from Realtime Gaming. The slot game is very appealing in its design, and the graphics are professionally designed along with the sound effects and background music.
Fu Chi is classified as a high volatility slot game, so players would need to pace themselves to maximise their bankroll. With five reels and three rows the game is divided into fifty variable pay lines. The scatter symbol, three of which trigger the free spins feature, is the Zodiac icon. The substitute or wild symbol is the Dog icon, and this counts for all symbols including the scattered Zodiac.
There are two local progressive jackpots, called Minor and Major, which can be triggered at random after the completion of any game. Playing with all fifty pay lines active, which is recommended, the betting starts of at R0.50 a spin and this can be increased in incremental steps all the way up to a whopping R250 per spin.
Fu Chi Free Spins Feature
The highlight of any slot game is the bonus feature and Fu Chi does not disappoint with its own unique feature. When three, four or five Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the five reels then fifteen, twenty or thirty free games are awarded, respectively. The number of free games will be doubled if no wilds appeared in the triggering combination.
During the free games all prizes are tripled, and any retrigger will award the same number of free games as the original trigger.
Fu Chi is a wonderful slot game to play especially if you’re able to trigger the maximum number of spins in the free games feature. The only criticism would be the fireworks sound effect which sounds more like static electricity and this can be a bit annoying.
