Nian Nian You Yu is roughly translated as 'plenty of fish.' This greeting is used to wish others abundance in their lives at the time of the Chinese New Year. The slot game has Chinese symbols on the reels and a background of a Chinese temple. The oriental music and brightly coloured symbols help to set the scene. While the game may be a very simple one to play, it comes with some lucrative progressive jackpots. Players will see Chinese lanterns, Koi, dragons, Chinese letters, flowers, and more.

Important Symbols and Combinations

  • Scatter: The scatter symbol is depicted by the Chinese characters that translate as Nian Nian You Yu. They pay out when two or more are seen on a single payline.
  • Wilds: The wild symbol is the fish, a big red Koi. This symbol can substitute for all symbols, including the scatter symbol. The wild symbol will only be found on reels two, three, and four. Wins with wild substitutes are doubled.
  • How to win the top prize: The top prize, a progressive jackpot, is randomly triggered. The bigger the wagers, the more chance it will be triggered.
  • The top fixed prize is awarded when players see five purple dragons on a single payline. The payout is 10,000 times the amount wagered on the spin.

Nian Nian You Yu comes with an Autoplay feature. Players can choose to have the reels spun automatically choosing 10, 25, 50, or 99 spins at a time. It is possible to stop the Autoplay feature at any time by clicking on the Stop button. This feature is particularly useful when players wish to continue play while they focus on something else.

Bonus Rounds

The Dragon Jackpot Mystery Progressive Jackpot round is randomly triggered at the end of a spin, whether the spin was a winning payline or not. There is a greater chance of this round being triggered if a higher line bet has been wagered.

Once a player has entered the Dragon Jackpot round, it is guaranteed that one of the four progressive jackpots will be won. Players need to spin the wheel in order to collect three of the same dragon symbols. When three identical symbols have been collected, the player will win the corresponding progressive jackpot.

In addition to the four possible progressive jackpot wins, players also stand the chance to hit a number of other winning combinations.

Top and Secondary Prizes

Although the progressive jackpot is likely to pay the highest prize, there are other lucrative jackpots to be found in the Nian Nian You Yu slot game. The highest non-progressive payout of 10,000 coins is awarded when there are five purple dragons on a single payline. When four purple dragons are seen on a single payline, 500 coins are paid out.

The second highest dragon symbol payout is 5,000 coins when five of these symbols are found on a single payline. For four dragons on a single payline, 250 coins are paid out.
