Symbols and Payouts

The theme is China and is played against a backdrop of fishermen and a jungle with blossoming trees and colourful birds.  The golden pheasant can be found at the top of the reels and as the reels spin the pheasant becomes animated.  China River features the following symbols, lotus flower, Chinese symbols, emerald frogs, Chinese pots, golden pheasants, gold coins and playing cards from Ace to Ten.

The golden pheasant is the wild symbol and will substitute for all the other symbols.  The wild symbol appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.  In China River the wild symbol also substitutes for the scatter symbol, the golden coin.  The highest paying symbol is the Chinese symbol which pays out 1000 coins for 5, the lotus flower has a payout of 500 coins for 5, the Chinese pot is worth 250 coins for 5 and the frog pays out 200 coins for 5.  The playing card symbols have lower payouts and the Ace and King pay out 150 coins for 5 and the Queen, Jack Ten and Nine all have a payout of 100 coins for 5.  Payouts are paid out from left to right.

Mystery Stacked Symbol

For each time the reels spin the game will select a stacked symbol.  This symbol is chosen automatically at the start of each spin.  Each of the pokies reels has a stacked symbol, which is replaced with a random symbol.  These mystery symbols are able to replace all of the other symbols except the golden pheasant.

Free Spins Feature

The gold coin will activate the free spins feature and 3 or more must appear on the reels.  The number of free spins is determined by the amount of gold coins that appear.  3 coins will reward players with 8 free spins, 4 coins will reward players with 10 free spins and for 5 coins players are rewarded with 15 free spins.  This bonus feature can be reactivated when 3 or more gold coins appear.  All the free spins, the extra and remaining spins are added together.  Free spins are played at the same bet that activated the bonus feature.  The free spins will end when players run out of spins.  Players who manage to get bonus symbols on the first 3 reels will be rewarded with 240 free spins.
