Happy Golden Ox of Happiness Slot Review

Happy Golden Ox of Happiness is a 5 reel and 50 pay lines video slot game that was released by Real Time Gaming in 2009, to celebrate the Year of the Ox.  It includes; a Wild symbol, Multipliers, a Scatter symbol, a Free Spins round and a Progressive Jackpot.

About Happy Golden Ox of Happiness

Happy Golden Ox of Happiness is a bit of a mouthful for a video slot game; however it is a Chinese New Year themed slot game that celebrates the year of the Ox.  

The Happy Golden Ox of Happiness slot game can’t help but put a smile on your face, thanks to its brightly coloured cartoon inspired graphics.  The symbols include; a smiling Golden Ox, the Year of the Ox Chinese symbol, Red Firecrackers, Tao Hongbao (Red Envelopes containing Monetary Gifts), Chinese Pottery, Chinese Silk Fans, Paper Lanterns and some other Chinese Letter symbols.

When you look at the games pay table, you will notice that all the multipliers are connected to the number eight.  This is because it is considered a lucky number in Chinese culture.

Betting Options

The one downside to this video slot game is that you cannot amend the games total bet amount.  This is rarely seen in a slot game, and we were rather shocked to come across it in the Happy Golden Ox of Happiness slot.  This means that you have to spend $1 per spin on the game, no matter what. 

Slot Features

The Golden Ox Wild symbol is one of the most impressive symbols in the game, as it can do three different things.  First of all it can substitute the other symbols in the game (excluding the Scatter symbol), to help make up a winning pay lines combination.  However, if you manage to bring up all five of the Happy Golden Ox symbols on one of the games 50 pay lines, then you will win the games progressive jackpot.

That is still not all though, as if you manage to bring up the Happy Golden Ox symbol in any position on the games 1st and 5th reel at the same time, then you will trigger the games re-spin feature. This will hold the two Wild symbols in position, as it re-spins the reels up to eight times.  The first re-spin will carry a 1x win multiplier, the second re-spin a 2x win multiplier and so on.  It is not possible to trigger the free spins round or the progressive jackpot during your re-spins.

The game also boasts a free spins feature that gives away eight free spins on the game.  However, this is only if you manage to bring up three or more of the Year of the Ox symbols in any position on the reels.  All your winnings will be tripled during the free spins round, excluding any re-spin winnings.  You cannot trigger the games progressive jackpot during free play.
