Each year the Chinese New Year is celebrated about 6 weeks after the traditional New Year of the 31st December and each year a different animal is named as the leader for the year. This slots game with its five reels and twenty five paylines is a tribute to the special Chinese Years that bring good fortune and health to all that celebrate. The golden ox is the central animal in this game and it brings good fortune to all. There is a progressive jackpot that increases with every real money bet and the player can win the progressive jackpot only if he has placed bets on all paylines and lands five of the god of wealth symbols on an active payline.
