Book of Cai Shen Slot Overview

Unimaginable treasures await in iSoftBet’s newest venture which takes inspiration from an immensely popular genre of game that we just can’t get enough of. 

Book of Cai Shen Slot is an exciting game centred around Chinese Mythology, and iSoftBet have aptly chosen Caishen as the figure head of the game.

Caishen is the God of wealth and money, and he’s revered in both Taoism and Chinese folklore by people who are hoping that he’d bless their coming year with prosperity.

As it happens, we’ve just entered a new year, so it’s not too late to make your plea to the philanthropic deity yourself for your share of fortune. 

Blessings from the God of Wealth in Book of Cai Shen Slot 

It’s been said many times, but there just aren’t any theme of games that can inspire the kind of awe that traditional Chinese themed games can.

Everything about the visuals are so attractive, and as you enter the tranquil temple of the God of Wealth to make your offering, you’ll definitely stop to appreciate the beauty.

Golden columns can be seen in the background with Chinese inscriptions, and candles and lanterns can be seen shedding light on the pristine interior that really makes you appreciate the culture.

Theme aside, the idea has to be applauded too. It won’t be coincidence that a god worshipped traditionally at New Year celebrations makes his appearance between in time for Lunar New Year celebrations.  

Betting and Symbols

Betting options for Book of Cai Shen Slot cover a wide enough array of different options to suit the needs of most players.

The lowest option available here is £/€0.10, and the highest option is £/€10. There’s a fair few options in between, so make an offering of your choice to the Cai Shen and he’ll accept it graciously! 

High paying symbols in the game are all symbolic Chinese symbols, with the top symbol being Cai Shen.

Other high paying symbols include a Dragon, a Red envelope and a ring. Low paying symbols in the game are represented by A, K, Q, J & 10. There’s also a Book symbol, which acts as a Scatter and a Wild.

The Base Game

The gameplay for Book of Cai Shen Slot is something you’ll undoubtedly recognise, as it’s genre of game that has been extensively covered by providers everywhere due to its immense popularity. 

There are 10 pay lines in total for the game, and 3 or more matching low paying symbols, or 2 or more high paying symbols are needed across any of these 10 pay lines to award a win.

The Book symbol will act as a Wild, which will help to connect those wins, and decent wins are possible if you manage to match up some high paying symbols all the way across a pay line.

Much like every ‘Book of’ game in existence, all the fun will be waiting for you in the Free Spins round.

Free Spins

3 or more book symbols are needed anywhere in view to trigger the Free Spins round, and 10 spins are awarded.

Scatter symbols pay, and the amount you get will depend on how many books you triggered the bonus with. 

  • 3 Books – 2x
  • 4 Books – 20x
  • 5 books – 200x

At the start of the round, a special symbol is chosen to become the expanding symbol going forward.

In a little bit of a twist, players are able to change this expanding symbol out for another symbol if they aren’t happy with the initial choice.

This is a feature like the one we’ve seen previously in No Limit City’s Book of Shadows, and it’s a really nice feature to have if you’d like to up the risk a bit with a higher paying symbol, or roll again for a lower symbol if you feel like it’ll work in your favour for a less volatile bonus. 

Book of Cai Shen Slot also includes an interesting change in the form of their Golden Book symbol.

This is in Free Spins only, and when this lands, it will turn the reel golden and will substitute for the special symbol if a win is possible.

iSoftBet have opted to include their Ultra Bet feature in Book Of Cai Shen Slot, seen before in games like Hot Shots 2.

Ultra-Bet allows players to place a single wager which will unlock 50 high voltage games which will have you collecting wins, multipliers, stars and bonus rounds as you progress. 

The inclusion of this feature will not be present in the UK, but readers in other countries may well be able to make use of this rousing feature. 

Our Verdict

In reality, you’ve probably played Book of Cai Shen Slot a hundred times before, but just like us, you’re here because it never seems to get old.

The theme of the game is gorgeous, and the thought that went into it and the timing of releasing it around the Lunar New Year celebration is a nice touch that’ll hopefully popularise the game. 

Book of Cai Shen Slot may be a little bit uneventful in the Base Game, so your opinion of it will depend entirely on your experience in the exciting Free Spins round, which has the potential to pay big with a huge maximum win potential of 11,069x.

The Golden Book within the bonus is a really nice touch, acting as a substitute for your special expanding symbol, which will make this an integral part in landing those nice wins. 

Overall, Book of Cai Shen Slot has a lot of potential, and it’s clear to see that the game will be a popular one, though it’s a hard market with this type of game due to the sheer number of them out there.

Book of Cai Shen Slot will be available to play across most Online Casinos on the 2nd of February 2021!
