Renowned slots developer Microgaming confirmed the release of its new explosive Chinese New Year-themed slot Gung Pow this week, reviewed here at Gamingslots.

Gung Pow is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot that focuses on the celebrations and joy that surround the Chinese New Year. The reels are set against a red colour scheme background to symbolise good luck within Chinese culture and symbols across the reels include fireworks, sparklers, fire crackers, and Chinese lanterns.

There is also a free spins bonus round where players can earn 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier if they manage to trigger the free spins by hitting three or more Scatters across the reels. The Scatters coming in the form of the traditional Chinese gold coin symbols.

The Chinese New Year is not officially until Thursday 19th February but the timing of the release of this new slot allows those that celebrate the Chinese New Year to build up the excitement as the momentous day approaches whilst also allowing those that celebrate the Christian calendar New Year to keep the party going a little longer.

Gung Pow is Microgaming’s first big title release of 2015 with the developer keen to hit the new year running after experiencing one of its most high-profile years of slots releases into the slots industry throughout 2014.

Microgaming was responsible for some of the biggest slots releases on the market last year including the smash hit Jurassic Park slot and the highly anticipated Game of Thrones slot.
