Where to play?
Now that the Chinese New Year is in full swing premier software house Microgaming rolled out Fu Lu Shou, a low to medium variance 3D online video slots machine. It has 20 paylines (fixed) played on a 5×3 reel set and has a RTP (average Return To Player percentage) of 96.12%.
The game is based on the Three Stars of Chinese religion (Taoism) namely Fu, Lu and Shou which each represents Prosperity (Fu), Status (Lu) and Longevity (Shou). The game art is flushed with colours of red and gold along with a simple game mechanic augmented by an Oriental design.
Bonus features wise, it does not have a Free Spins feature nor multiplier wins, but it does have expanding wilds that appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 with the prospect of re-spins. In terms of overall features the game is pretty spartan and a good start for players with limited slot game experience. If you’re into all things slots you can visit our highest payout slots page.
Symbols on the reels are the gods fu (pink), lu (red), shou (gold), gold ingots, gold charms, peach blossoms and calligraphy brushes. Bets per spin start at £0.10 to £3,000, really? Maybe we’re missing something with a slots as low key as this (sorry Microgaming) we’ll never wager this amount it’s utter stupidity.
Expanding Wilds and Re-spins
When one of the three Chinese gods (Fu, Lu or Shou) pitch they act as expanding wilds offering you a re-spin, that’s about as far as things go here. The big wins ensue when 3 expanded wild appear on the reels but don’t bank on it. Expect loads of dry spins before an expanding wild pops; all in all it’s a disappointing slots.
Sometimes less is more regrettably not more in this case as Microgaming fails to deliver with Fu Lu Shou slots on every level: technical shortcomings and wonky payouts that crushed the fun for us. As such Fu Lu Shou is best left unplayed.
