Full Review - Golden Ox of Happiness (9.29)

The mechanics of Happy Golden Ox of Happiness are very simple. The only coin denomination allowed is 0.02. All fifty paylines are automatically enabled. And the player is constrained to wager one coin per line. Hence the player does not have to make any selections but play with the mandatory bet of 1.00. This is a low amount per spin and therefore the slot game is suitable for low rollers. Players just have to open the game, click on the SPIN button and they are into the game.

Happy Ox is the wild symbol. When this symbol substitutes in a winning combination it is accompanied by interesting animation and audio effects. This symbol appearing simultaneously on reel 1 and reel 5 triggers the Re-spin Feature. These two reels are held while the remaining three re-spin up to eight times. The multiplier keeps increasing by 1 with each re-spin. The Year of the Ox is the scatter feature. Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels result in a scatter payout, which is multiplied by the total bet. Five scatter symbols have a payout of 188 coins. Three or more scatter symbols trigger the Free Games feature, which offers 8 free spins at tripled payouts. The free spins can be re-triggered. Also the Re-spins feature can be triggered during this feature. The progressive jackpot cannot be hit in any of these features. If five Happy Ox symbols appear in any payline during these features players receive a payout of 8888 coins. Outside these features five Happy Ox symbols result in the progressive jackpot being hit.

The highest fixed jackpot is 2888 coins, which is hit when five of any of the like Chinese Character symbols appear in a payline. The second highest fixed jackpot is 888 coins when five Masked Dancer, Lantern or Firecracker symbols appear in an enabled payline. The payout table can be accessed by clicking the HELP button.
