To win, you have to land a combination of the same symbols on a payline. The positions of the winning combos are not in the menu, so there is no way of knowing what they are. The game rule is that all wins including the scatter should be a combo from the leftmost reel.

All of these numbers are multipliers applied against your bet per line.


Here are the game features that you need to look forward to:

  • Wild – the Chinese Emperor is the wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The wild does not pay coins.
  • Scatter – the Golden Nugget is the scatter. It triggers the free spins bonus. It only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4. It also pays out coins as multipliers against your line stake. The prizes are:
  • 5x – 20
  • 4x – 5
  • 3x – 2

The scatter symbol triggers the feature bonus where you have to choose how you want to play your bonus round. You can choose between 6 and 25 free games, but each choice comes with a wild that has a random multiplier.

As you choose more free games, the wild will award lesser multiplier values. The multiplier values are between 2x and 40x if the wild was used for a win during the free games.


  • Lightning Storm – there is a lightning symbol that attaches itself to random symbols in the base game. Landing at least six of this will trigger the Lightning Storm round. During this round, all reels with a lightning symbol will stay in place and the other reels will spin.

You have three re-spins. If a lightning symbol appears on any of the reels, this reel will stay in place and you will get a new set of three re-spins.

During this round, you will also choose three slots that do not have the lightning symbol. If a lightning symbol lands on all three slots that you chose, the prize of the lightning will be multiplied by two.

  • Jackpot prizes – the three jackpots are Minor, Major, and Grand. Minor is a fixed prize but the other two are progressive. The number of lightning symbols will determine which prize you win as shown below:
  • 13 – Minor
  • 14 – Major
  • 15 – Grand
