Just in time to usher in the Chinese New Year, Jackpot Capital Casino has released an Asian-themed online casino video slot game. The Chinese New Year begins January 31st and is brought in by a festival that lasts for 15 days. This year, the Chinese New Year is the Year of the Horse. The Lucky 8 slot release from Jackpot Capital Casino is a five reel and 25 payline video slot game.

The Lucky 8 Video Slot Game

While many Western online casino players see the number seven as a lucky number, in the Chinese culture, the number eight is a sign of, if not luck itself, rather good fortune and prosperity. The Asian-themed slot takes players to a place where they will see symbols of the Orient, along with great bonuses such as free spins and multipliers. The scatter symbol is the Lucky 8 symbol and the wild, or substitute, symbol is the Emperor symbol. The slot game comes with a local progressive jackpot and a random jackpot that has both a minor and a major jackpot. Many of the symbols seen in this slot game are the higher value card symbols that have been created to look like Chinese writing characters.

Oliver Smith, the Casino Manager at Jackpot Capital Casino, said: "The number 8 is a symbol of prosperity and sudden good fortune in Chinese culture and is many gamblers' lucky number. The number 8 runs all through this game: Lucky 8 symbols trigger 8 free spins, and bonus rounds award up to 8x multipliers. If bonus round wins are less than 8x the triggering bet, the Win-Win feature awards a bonus of 88x that bet."
