Paytable page:

  • Clicking Paytable opens the reference screen describing different game components. Clicking the arrow buttons at the lower right-hand corner of the screen enables navigating between the different info screens.
    • The Nian Nian You Yu (Paytable) screen shows all winning combinations. When opened after a winning spin, the winning symbol combinations (number of symbols and bet multiplier) are highlighted and blink.
    • The Dragon Jackpot screen describes how to win entry to the Progressive Jackpot game that rewards 1 of 4 jackpots, and explains the game’s rules.
  • Clicking Back exits the Paytable screen and returns to the game.


  • Active paylines are represented by lines that appear over the reels upon clicking on Bet One, or on the numbered buttons on either side of the reels.
  • Only active paylines can register wins.
  • There is a difference between the line bet and the total bet. The line bet shows how much is being bet on a single payline. The total bet shows how much is being bet in total on the game round, which will be the line bet multiplied by the amount of lines being bet on. Payouts shown in the paytable are multiplied by the line bet.

The Scatter symbol is an exception to these rules. More information about the Scatter symbol can be found below.

About payouts:

    • Payouts are listed on the Paytable screen. To find the possible win amount, the line bet must be multiplied by the payout.


  • Winning combinations on active paylines pay both directions: from left to right and from right to left.
  • If there are multiple simultaneous wins in either direction, the highest paying winning combination in each direction counts.
  • The same active payline can pay twice on a single spin. However, 5-of-a-kind wins are only paid once.
  • Left to right winning combinations must start from the leftmost reel and the symbols have to be consecutive.
  • Right to left winning combinations must start from the rightmost reel and the symbols have to be consecutive.
  • If more than one active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are added up.

The Scatter symbol is an exception to these rules. More information about the Scatter symbol can be found below.

Wild Symbol

The Wild symbol appears only on reels #2, #3 and #4. It can stand for any other symbol, including Scatter , to make the best possible winning combination.


  • Wild symbol combinations do not pay separately.
  • Whenever participates in a winning combination along an active payline while substituting, it will double the payout, but will not accumulate it, meaning that 2 Wild symbols will multiply the win by 2, not 4.

Scatter Symbol

The Scatter symbols do not have to occur on any particular payline. If there are 2 or more Scatters appearing anywhere on the reels in a consecutive order (either from left to right, or from right to left), the payout earned is multiplied by the total bet and added to payline winnings, if any.

Dragon Jackpot

The Dragon Jackpot is a 4-level mystery progressive jackpot game. It is accumulated by all players’ stakes bet in all games which feature the Dragon Jackpot, among all online casinos that offer these games.

The Dragon Jackpot is randomly triggered on any main game spin while playing any of the linked games. A bet of any size in the linked games can trigger the Jackpot game and you may be awarded a Jackpot game even after a spin that has gained no winnings. The higher your bet, however, the bigger your chance to enter the Dragon jackpot. Once you enter the Jackpot game, you are guaranteed to win 1 of the 4 jackpots.

Upon entering the Jackpot game, the screen will reveal a wheel with 10 positions on it. Each position holds a coloured symbol that represents 1 of the 4 jackpots. To win a Jackpot, you have to collect 3 symbols of the same colour. For example, if you collect 3 red symbols, you will win the value in the red ticker or its equivalent in other currencies.

Spin the wheel by clicking on Spin. Once you have collected 3 symbols of the same colour the corresponding Jackpot will be awarded. Click Continue to return to the reels.

The Dragon Jackpot works like this:

Seed (how much money the Jackpots start out with)*: Green: EUR 10
Blue: EUR 100
Red: EUR 1,000
Yellow: EUR 20,000
Contribution rate (what percentage of each bet goes into Jackpot): 1%
Win condition (the result you have to get to win the Jackpot): Entering the Dragon Jackpot guarantees a win. Collect 3 symbols of the same colour to win the corresponding Jackpot amount.
Win requirements (what you need to do to be eligible for the Jackpot): Play a game, featuring the Dragon Jackpot.

*The amount of the respective Jackpot awarded in your local currency should be equivalent to its amount in Euro.

Please note:

  • The seed and Jackpot values are in Euros in the progressive network and their value in your local currency is dependent on the currency exchange rate.
  • The mechanics of the Dragon Jackpot prohibit simultaneous jackpot winnings.
  • Imperfections in the Internet connectivity may cause you to experience delays in Jackpot messages or updates, but they do not affect actual Jackpot wins.
  • If a Jackpot is being discontinued (a game is closed and removed from the casino client), you will be notified of it by the casino.
