The symbols you will land on the reels include the standard low-value Royals, as well as better paying animals representing the Chinese zodiac signs – rabbits, goats, tigers, etc. The macaque monkey is the wild that substitutes all the other symbols except for the gong scatter and the drum bonus symbol to help you land winning combinations.
Land at least 3 scatters to trigger the feature. You will be presented with 4 gongs. Pick one of them to win either free spins or to secure yourself an entrance into the Fire Blaze Respin feature. The low-value symbols do not appear during the free spins, which significantly increases your chances of landing a nice win.
Fire Blaze Respin Feature
The other way to trigger the Fire Blaze Respin feature is by landing at least 6 bonus symbols in one spin. You will be awarded 3 respins and the drum symbols that triggered the feature remain locked in place.
You get either a cash prize or a Jackpot Star icon for every new drum symbol you land. If a Jackpot Star icon appears on the reels, you win a Mini, Minor, or Major jackpot worth 10x, 25x, and 100x your stake, respectively. Fill all positions with symbols and claim the Grand Jackpot worth 2,000x your stake. Every drum, wild symbol or Jackpot star icon resets the respins to 3.
