Symbols and payouts

Pictures of the Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot can be subdivided into regular and special. In this category, let's consider the regular pictures. Their only function is to form combinations according to the rules. In this slot machine, sequences are counted from the first reel to the fifth and the fifth to the first. To earn a reward, symbols should land one after another without gaps on the same payline.

Among regular pictures, two categories can be distinguished:

  1. Low-paying symbols are numbers and letters. Stylized pictures are playing cards running from a 9 to an Ace.
    • 9 and 10 pay 5, 15 and 100 times the bet per line
    • J and Q — 5, 20, and 200
    • K — 5, 25 and 300
    • A — 10, 30 and 500
  2. The high-paying symbols are pictures of animals and mythical creatures:
    • Carps and phoenix award the multipliers of x3, x20, x100 and x1,000 for 2, 3, 4 and 5 pictures in a row
    • The dragon earns you the multipliers of x5, x50, x250 and x2,500 for 2, 3, 4 and 5 pictures respectively
    • The lion awards the multipliers of x10, x100, x500 and x5,000 for 2 — 5 symbols And even one picture of this kind is paid, earning you 2 times your bet per line

Among the low-paying pictures, A is considered as the most lucrative, as forming a combination of three symbols, it gets a reward that exceeds the cost for a spin. The remaining pictures of this category play in your favour, forming combinations of 4 — 5 pictures.

Among the high-paying pictures, the lion awards the biggest win. However, even less paying symbols exceed the total bet, when there are three in a row.

Special pictures

Additional useful options of the Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot are applied thanks to the special pictures. Such symbols do not play by common rules and perform a number of special functions.

The Wild symbol is the picture of Zhao Tsai Jin Bao. This picture replaces any other symbol, forming or extending a combination. If, for example, carps landed on the 1st and 3rd reels and the portrait appeared on the second reel of the same payline, a combination of three carps will be counted. Unlike other slot machines, Zhao Cai Jin Bao supports interacting of the Wild and the Scatter symbols.

The ritual bent tray for offerings plays as the Scatter symbol. This picture differs from the remaining ones by its ability to form combinations of symbols, scattered across the screen. They do not have to be on one payline, the number of identical pictures on the screen is what counts. The second feature of the Scatter symbol is that the factors, assigned to this symbol, apply to the total bet rather than to the bet per line. So, 2, 3, 4 or 5 pictures of the tray pay you 2, 5, 10 and 100 times the total bet.


The Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot by Playtech does not offer a versatile gameplay. However, due to the applied options, it can be quite lucrative. This game would appeal to beginners to learn the basics of the game on the five-reel slot machine. Experienced players will probably like the attractive payouts for combinations.
