Gung Pow is one of the many Microgamings slots to be inspired by the Chinese. The theme is quite typical unfortunately, so this isn’t one of the aspects that could set it apart from the competition. You get a design that focuses on things like paper lanterns and fireworks, a cute look being made for it, but I don’t think it’s enough. The slot offers all the usual features, from the wild, to scatters, to free spins and even some multipliers. You will get a chance to bet on 243 ways to win, the slot having 5 reels. You can win $30,000 in the best case scenario.
Betting and Prizes
You work with multiples of 25 coins, since that’s the number of lines the betting system uses instead of ways to win. You can wager 25 to 250 coins each round, meaning that each line gets between 1 and 10 coins. A second choice that is yours to make is in regards to the coin value, going up to $1. That would mean that the line bet reaches $10, while the total can be at $250.
The slot appears to be offering payouts of up to $30,000 through its regular symbols, and up to $25,000 through the scatter icon. You get paid more only if you’re in free spins mode, where multipliers can improve things for you.
Gung Pow Slot Features
The Gung Pow Logo is of course among the symbols which have something extra to give you. In the case of this slot machine, that little extra would be the wild ability it can apply, whenever its position is good enough to allow it to participate in a combo. The downside here is that you get wilds only on the 2nd and 4th reels, so they can’t be as helpful as in other slots. The upside is that wilds have more chances to help out in slots with ways to win.
The Gold Coin scatter will be the one used to trigger the free spins. You will need these symbols to just be on the reels during one of the spins, in numbers that go from 2+ for payments and from 3+ for free spins. The prizes offered, for 2 to 5 scatters, go from 1x to 100x total wager.
The free spins, offered in exchange for 3 or more scattered Gold Coins, will give you 15 rounds, during which tripled prizes will be awarded. You can retrigger the free spins as well.
Theme & Design
You should expect a decent looking slot machine, but with a theme that is not that special. The darker shades of color used in Gung Pow video slot work well for it, with the symbols being combinations of things Chinese in origin (gold coins, paper lanterns, firecrackers and fireworks) and some that are standard for a slot machine (poker letters).
Gung Pow delivers exactly what you’d expect from such a slot machine, so it’s difficult to call yourself impressed by it. Still, it does pay well and has all the right features inside, so it might worth a try if you enjoy the theme.
