Choy Sun Doa

Published: 07/01/2013

In 2011, Bet365 introduced a number of new games to its video slot line-up, including the Chinese-themed Choy Sun Doa from Australia’s Aristocrat Technologies. This game was originally released on the Widescreen Viridian™ cabinet for the Asia-Pacific region’s land-based casino market, and its migration to online casinos is a welcome addition, indeed. “Choy Sun Doa” means the “God of Wealth and Prosperity.”

Choy Sun Doa’s pedigree as a cabinet-style slot game shows up immediately in its “Reel Power” format: 5 reels with 243 ways to win. All wins are paid, regardless of how many times a symbol may be included in winning ways. The audio that accompanies various wins will also be very familiar to players who frequent bricks-and-mortar casinos.

Credit denominations available on Choy Sun Doa range from €0.02 to €2.00 and can be adjusted by using the +/- toggles beneath the first reel. From 25 to 125 credits may be wagered per spin in increments of 25 for a maximum wager of €250. The credits per spin control toggles are located beneath the second reel.

The game is initiated by clicking “Spin.” Winnings appear beneath the fourth reel, while the current credit balance is displayed in the lower left corner and Total Bet is displayed below the third reel. Use of the Auto Spin in the lower right corner allows repetition of 5, 10, 20, 50 or 100 bets.

The lowest winning combinations on Choy Sun Doa slots are three or more matching card symbols, Nines through Aces, paying multipliers of 5X to 200X. Higher payouts are received for matches of three or more Money Packets, Carp, Jade Rings, Dragons, Gold Coins or Gold Crowns. Line payouts range from 15X up to 1250X. The Choy Sun Doa symbol is wild on reels 2, 3 and 4, substituting for all symbols except the Gold Crown.

Whenever winning combinations appear, the symbols triggering the payout animate by flashing. The Golden Crowns will spin within a circle of gold coins and the wild Choy Sun Doa will laugh heartily as a shower of gold leaf falls in the background. When truly big wins are awarded, coins will appear to cascade right out of the middle reels.

Free Games are won by catching three or more Gold Crown in succession on the reels from left to right in any position. After the line payouts have been awarded, a second screen will appear, offering five “Fish” options with varying numbers of free spins and different multipliers for Choy Sun Doa symbols appearing in winning combinations.

The Yellow Fish awards 20 free spins with multipliers of 2X, 3X and 5X. The Red Fish activates 15 free spins with multipliers of 3X, 5X and 8X. The Blue Fish provides 10 free spins with multipliers of 5X, 8X and 10X, while the Purple Fish has 8 free spins with multipliers of 8X, 10X and 15X. Lastly, the Green Fish offers 5 free spins with multipliers of 10X, 15X and 30X. According to the paytable, the “return to player for all five features is essentially the same.”

During the free spins, if Money Packets appear simultaneously on reels one and five, they award a random total bet multiplier from 2X to 50X. The Gold Crown symbols appear on the reels during the free spins, too, so the feature can be retriggered indefinitely.

Clicking on the “Main Menu” in the upper left corner of the screen reveals a pull-down menu with additional “Options.” These include on/off toggles for the sound effects and graphics. There is also a toggle that allows the slot display to “Fit to Window,” thus maximizing the viewing area.
