Habanero will ring in the Chinese New Year with its latest Fire Rooster slot and other Chinese-themed slots. Habanero’s Chinese slots include Fenghuang, 12 Zodiacs, Fa Cai Shen and more.
The Fire Rooster slot is homage to a Chinese folklore, The Rooster’s Lament. The Rooster’s Lament is a tale about how the rooster loses his crown because of the centipede. The slot symbols and artwork are references to the folklore.
The bonus feature of the Fire Rooster slot is its ‘Random Wilds’. When the player triggers the free spin mode of the game, the Rooster or wild symbol will change. During the free spin mode, the Rooster symbol can turn a random number of symbols on any reels into a Rooster symbol.
Fenghuang is the mythological creature that is lord of all bird creatures. In Today’s Chinese culture, the use of Fenghuang and dragon is a representation of a husband and his wife. Habanero’s Fenghuang slot uses the two mythical creatures as the key figures of the slot game.
Fenghuang slot’s bonus feature is its two wild symbols, which are the Fenghuang and the dragon. When a number of them appear on the reels, they trigger the bonus feature. The wild symbols will move across the reels and expand where the symbol takes up the entire reel during the bonus feature.
The 12 Zodiacs slot is a game about the Chinese zodiacs. The Chinese zodiac animals are representations of the Chinese calendar that have a 12-year cycle. The 12 Zodiac reference the animals by using them as the slot’s symbols.
The bonus feature happens when a player makes three or more red lanterns appear on the reels. Any symbols a player match in the bonus mode turns into a red lantern. By turning random matching symbols into one symbol, players have a good chance of matching five lantern symbols that give a big payout.
Fa Cai Shen is a slot about the god of wealth, Caishen. The slot’s name also makes use of the Mandarin Chinese New Year greeting, Gong Xi Fa Cai. ‘Gong Xi’ means wishing someone happiness and ‘Fa Cai’ is to be wealthy.
Caishen is the main focus of Fai Cai Shen’s bonus feature. The god of wealth is the wild symbol of the game where he acts as a substitute for other symbols. During the bonus feature, Caishen’s symbol expands to fill out the whole reel where he lands on. A player can get a large payout if he can get three Caishen symbols to appear.
