Choy Sun Doa slot review
It might be considered as one of the all-time most iconic slots to have hit the market but the Aristocrat-developed Choy Sun Doa is available on the mobile market and the big question on everybody's lips is how well it converts to the mobile platform.
On the Reels...
Choy Sun Doa is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win mobile slot that has a theme based on the Chinese God of Wealth. There is even a happy little song that pays tribute to the God and any God of Wealth is a welcome sight for a slots player. This slot also comes with Aristocrat's Reel Power function. This is where all symbols, except Scatters, winning combinations will pay through any position on the bet reels and the centre line only on other reels. Reel Power is something that has become a big drawing point for fans of Aristocrat's slots so it is great to see it has made the transition to the mobile slots.
There are a number of Oriental-themed symbols across the reels. These include a golden dragon, green jade bracelet, Koi carp, red envelopes, gold ornament, and the regular 9-through-to-Ace symbols.
The God of Wealth is Wild
The Wild symbol is represented by what appears to be the God of Wealth himself... or a generic Chinese man... but for the sake of argument we shall say it is Choy Sun Doa! He only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 but substitutes for all other symbols, except for the Scatters, to complete potential winning combinations.
Scatters Have Power!
You will also want to keep an eye out for the Scatters. These are on the reels in the form of the gold ingot symbol and they pay out Scatter wins that multiply by your total bet for that spin. They are also the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. If you hit three or more of these symbols across the reels you will be given the chance to choose your number of free spins and multiplier. Get ready because this is going to get interesting.
Earn up to 20 Free Spins or a 30x Multiplier
There are five options with each option represented by a different coloured Koi carp. The yellow Koi carp gives 20 free spins with Wild wins offering up to a 5x multiplier. The red Koi carp awards 15 free spins with Wild wins delivering up to an 8x multiplier. The blue Koi carp rewards you with 10 free spins with Wild wins paying out up to a 10x multiplier. The pink Koi carp promises 8 free spins with a multiplier value of up to 15x attached to Wild wins. Finally, the green Koi carp provides 5 free spins with any Wild wins producing a multiplier value up to 30x.
Find the Red Envelopes to Reveal Cash Wins
In addition, during the free spins, if you hit a red envelope symbol across the reels then you will win a random cash prize up to 50 coins. It is not a huge amount to win but you should never look a gift Choy Sun Doa in the mouth. It is also possible to re-trigger the free spins bonus round during the free spins so your bonus feature could last for longer than you initially anticipated.
Overall, Choy Sun Doa is a simple mobile slot and it is easy to see why it conquered the land-based and online markets. Now, on the mobile market, it appears to have lost none of its magic. Aristocrat are the masters of Oriental-themed mobile slots. You only need to see the beautiful 50 Dragons mobile slot and the visually rich Geisha mobile slot. However, does this mobile slot stand as the finest Aristocrat mobile slot out there? I'm not convinced. It could do with an additional bonus feature but maybe I am just being picky. This slot's reputation precedes it for a reason.
