Game Rules

Zhao Cai Jin Bao

5-Reel, 9-Line Slot

The objective of playing Zhao Cai Jin Bao online casino slot is to spin the reels and land matching symbols on the paylines. Unlike many slots, paylines in this game will pay from left to right and from right to left.

How to Play:

  • Start by choosing the Line Bet. Do this by using the +/- buttons underneath the Line Bet Box.
  • You must then choose the number of paylines (up to a maximum of nine) you wish to bet on. You can do this by using the +/- buttons underneath the Lines Box. You can also select paylines by clicking on one of the numbers on the sides of the reels. Please note: if you choose a number, it will activate all paylines numerically below it. For example, choosing ‘7’ will also activate paylines 1-6.
  • The Total Bet is calculated as the Line Bet x Number of Paylines. This is the amount deducted for each spin on Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot.
  • When you have selected your bets and paylines, click on the Spin button to play the slot. You can also spin the reels using the Bet Max button; this plays the slot at the maximum number of lines (9) for your chosen Line Bet.
  • You can set a predetermined number of spins to be played through consecutively (without your input) using the Auto Play Function. Click on the Auto Play button and choose from 10, 25, 50 or 99 Auto Spins. These will play through automatically, only pausing if you select the Stop button.
  • If a winning spin has been achieved, it will be clearly highlighted on screen and the winnings shown in the Win Field. All possible payouts for Line Wins and Scatter Wins are shown on the Paytable, which can be accessed via the button on the bottom left of the screen.

Info Pages:

Clicking on the Info button – located on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen – will open the Zhao Cai Jin Bao Info Pages. You can move through the pages using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. To return to the reels, click on the Back button. The Info Pages are as follows:

Paytable – shows all possible winning combinations and their respective payout values.

Paylines – shows how all nine paylines appear on the reels.


Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must follow across the reels to achieve Line Wins. In this slot, paylines work from left to right and from right to left.

Only active paylines, i.e. the ones you have bet on, can record Line Wins.

Please note that there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The former is the individual wager placed on each payline, whereas the latter is the accumulative amount wagered on all active paylines.

About Payouts:

All potential winning combinations are displayed on the Paytable screen. To calculate the value of a Line Win, multiply the figure shown by the Line Bet. For Scatter Wins, multiply the figure shown by the Total Bet.

Paylines work from left to right and from right to left. A winning combination must begin on either Reel 1 or Reel 5. It is possible to have two Line Wins on the same payline. However, if five of a kind occurs you will only be paid once, i.e. not in both directions.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It can substitute for all other symbols to help form winning combinations.

The Wild Symbol will double the value of any winning combination it is involved in.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol does not need to appear on any payline to be considered active. If you land two or more Scatter Symbols (starting on Reel 1 or Reel 5 and appearing consecutively), you will earn a payout, which is calculated by multiplying the figure shown on the Paytable by the Total Bet.

A Scatter Win will only pay once, i.e. not in both directions.

The Wild Symbol can substitute for Scatter Symbols, and thus will double any Scatter Win if it substitutes for it.

Return to Player:

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot at William Hill Casino is 95.99%
