God of Wealth
Realtime Gaming's God of Wealth online slot uses an in-depth Chinese theme with a lot of symbols of superstition and mythology from this culture. It's a game with a beautiful background and solid visuals, and it also has a random progressive jackpot that starts at the $1,000 level and goes up until someone hits it. Players will have no problem getting lots of ways to win in this game because it's completely packed with features.
It starts with a five-reel format with three rows, which is typical of Realtime Gaming (read more). There are 25 paylines in this game, and although you can choose to play with fewer than that, we recommend that you do not because playing with fewer paylines deactivates features and lowers your average payout rate (also known as RTP).
It's worth noting that you don't select coin sizes in this game. Instead, you select total bet sizes per spin, and the amount per payline is inferred from that. With all paylines activated, you can play for $0.25 per turn, which is like playing with $0.01 coins. Bet sizes go up to $6.25 per spin, which is the same as playing the game normally with $0.25 coins on each payline.
The god of wealth is the wild symbol in this game, and during normal play, you'll only find him on the middle reel. He is a 2x wild multiplier, so hitting a winning combination using this wild doubles your prize. You can earn a 5,000x win (10,000x with the wild) for five of the dragon symbol along with a 2,500x prize (5,000 with the wild) for five of the tiger. Next up is 500x (or 1,000x) for the bull and 300x (or 600x) for either the lantern or the dragon mask.
There are six different 8 symbols in various colors. The green, gold and silver ones pay out 250x for five of a kind, and all of them are 500x if you include a wild. Along similar lines, the pink, blue and brown ones pay 125x if you get five on an activated payline, and this doubles to the 250x level if it uses a wild.
The gold ingot symbol is the scatter in this game. Two gives you back your bet, and three activates a bonus feature that we'll describe above. Four gives you 10 times your total bet with the bonus feature, and five gives you a whooping 200 times your entire bet while also activating the bonus feature.
Like many slots (read more) these days, the scatters activate a set of free spins.
Free Spins Bonus Round
When you get three or more gold ingots, they'll each reveal a number of spins worth up to 10 each. If you get three, you'll get a maximum of 30 free spins, for example. Getting five gets a maximum of 50 free spins along the same lines. Once you're in the free spins, the god of wealth wild symbol shows up on all five reels instead of the only the center one.
During this feature, the god of wealth wild gets its own payouts. Five of a kind gives you a 10,000x win, and four earns 2,500x. You can pick up 250x for three or even 25x for just two of a kind. On top of that, they retain their multiplier when they help to make other winning combinations, so you're getting a pretty good deal in this feature.
The Chinese-themed God of Wealth is an entertaining game with a fun spin on how the wild works with it being tied into the free spins bonus feature. You're also able to land a large number of free spins at one time, which is something that you don't always see. While the graphics are good in this game, it does seem a bit crowded, and there's not a lot of empty space between things that makes it seem easier to breathe. With that having been said, it's definitely not a bad game at all, and some players will get a lot of play time out of it.
