Bringing you good fortune is the Twins logo symbol itself which is the Wild and substitutes for all other symbols (except the gold ingot scatter symbol)

Knocking this game down our list of top Chinese slots is the fact that this game has no special features whatsoever - not even a free spins mode, which we think is a bit of a shame. On the plus side the game is super easy to play and is suitable for low rollers and beginners.

Lucky Zodiac Slot

play Lucky Zodiac  Slot

Overview: Also from Microgaming we have Lucky Zodiac a colorful oriental-themed 5 x 3 reel, 20 pay line game.

This is a fun game bu it's a bit of a shame more wasn't done with the Zodiac theme - you get a monkey symbol and a goat symbol and rooster but the other signs of the Chinese zodiac are missing and instead we get a fairly ordinary collection of oriental themed symbols including a vase and Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace with a few pretty fan and lanterns finishing off the set

In terms of gameplay it's standard Microgaming fare - in the base game the Lucky Zodiac logo is the wild symbol while hitting three, four or five firecracker scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger the free spins feature with twelve free spins awarded and an extra wild (the rooster/monkey depending on the version) added to the reels. Free spins can be re-triggered during these rounds.

Bets on Lucky Zodiac start as just 0.01 and as this game is pretty simple so this is a good for penny slots players and beginners - but don't expect anything revolutionary with this one and we reckon you shouldn't expect much in the way of massive wins either.
