Audio, Design And Symbols
As we’ve already mentioned, Ingots of Cai Shen is an online slot machine inspired by the world of Asia, specifically Chinese culture. Wealth also plays a role, judging by the palatial setting and the fact that Cai Shen of the title refers to the Chinese god of prosperity. The game is powered by Microgaming, in collaboration with up-and-coming game developer, All41 Studios. Anyone familiar with their previous work can expect this latest co-creation to deliver strongly in terms of graphics, sound, features, gameplay, and navigation.
Visually the game uses typically prominent Chinese colours like reds, golds and yellows, while low-value symbols include stylistically designed standard playing card royals like A, K, Q and J. Other standard symbols more directly tied to the Chinese theme include the gold ingot, gold bell, gold fish, and glowing lanterns.
Interestingly, there is no Wild symbol, but there is a Scatter, which can appear on the 3rd, 4th and 5th reels in the base game and during Free Spins. This symbol is represented by gold coins tied by red ribbons. The Scatter is integral to activating Free Spins.
