Which animals would you consider to be lucky? Well this lucky chinese themed video slot developed and published by RealTime Gaming considers quite a few animals to be lucky with the Ox bringing the most fortune the way of the player.
While the game might be fairly basic in its setting and theme, the jackpot aspect of this title will surely pique the interest of anyone hoping to hit it big, or anyone that is a fan of lucky Chinese coins and oxes!
Let’s take a closer look at the title and see just how RTG created this lucky animal slot.
Theme & Symbols
The theme of this game is pretty straight forward, there are a bunch of animals that all have in their possession, in one form or another, a lucky Chinese coin. There isn’t much more than that but that doesn’t mean that the game is devoid of life or character.
The play grid is centred in front of a huge building with gorgeous blossoms growing in from the left and the right. Blanketing pretty much everything else is a heavy fog making it so that your attention is on the grid at all times.
The music is very fitting for the theme that they went for, it feels authentic and is just subtle enough that it doesn’t distract you from the game. There is a disappointing lack of sound effects however. Without sound effects the game doesn’t feel like it has much weight behind it but that is in no way a major flaw.
Animations are smooth, the reels on the grid spin effortlessly and there are fun little animations that play on winning spins.
The art work and the graphics, while limited, are very well done. Every symbol is a joy to look at and there’s nothing that is eye catching for the wrong reasons.
In total, the overall presentation of this title, while lacking in a few areas, is done fairly well. It’s clear that the main focus of this title wasn’t on the theme and that’s okay.
Starting off with the low-paying icons we have classic playing card values. Expect to see 9, 10, J, Q, K, A and a surprise Chow Chow appear quite often during your time spent with the game.
Heading into the higher-paying symbols we have a Pig, a Rat and, of course, an Ox. These are the icons you’ll want to keep your eye out for.
There is a Scatter symbol present in this title, landing three during a single spin will award you with bonus spins, landing three or more will net you a bonus along with those bonus spins.
Finally we have the Wild symbol, represented by a different ox. The Wild only appears on the first reel and will substitute for any common symbol. Any wins that come from the Wild are doubled.
Betting Options & Features
Ox Bonanza is a 5-reel, 3-row progressive jackpot video slot by RealTime Gaming. This title boasts a respectable 25 fixed paylines and a RTP of 96%.
The Wild symbol possesses a unique feature which allows it to morph the major symbols to a Wild symbol before winnings are counted, allowing you to build better combos. This feature will be active during bonus spins.
Landing 3 Scatters will award you with 10 bonus spins, landing 4 will get you 20 and if you’re lucky enough to get 5 Scatters in a single spin you’ll receive a ridiculous 100 bonus spins.
Either one of the progressive jackpots (Minor, Major or possibly even both) has the chance to be randomly triggered during gameplay.
