This game also gives you the chance to win one of four Progressive Jackpots.  Give it a spin today and discover why Zhao Cai Jin Bao Jackpot slot is making a name for itself like the popular games online blackjack, roulette and baccarat.

How to Play:

  • You must first choose your Line Bet. Do this by using the +/- buttons underneath the Line Bet Box.
  • Next you must choose the number of paylines to bet on. Use the +/- buttons underneath the Lines Box to choose from 1-9 paylines. 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 that are numerically below it. For example, choosing ‘8’ will also activate paylines 1-7.
  • The Total Bet is calculated as the Line Bet x Number of Paylines.
  • When you have selected your bets and paylines, click on the Spin button to spin the reels and start the game. You can also spin the reels using the Bet Max button; this spins the reels at the maximum number of lines (9) for your chosen Line Bet.
  • You can use Auto Play Mode to set a predetermined number of spins to be played through consecutively. Click on the Auto Play button and select from 10, 25, 50 or 99 Auto Spins. These will play through automatically, only pausing if you select the Stop button. Auto Play will pause if you are awarded the Dragon Jackpot.
  • If a winning spin has been achieved, it will be clearly highlighted on screen and the amount won shown in the Win Field. All winning combinations and their values 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 opens up the Info Pages, which includes the Paytable. 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 shown below:

Paytable – shows all possible winning combinations and their values.

Paylines – shows how the paylines appear on the reels.

Dragon Jackpot –describes the rules and awarding of the Dragon Jackpot.


Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must follow across the reels to achieve Line Wins. In Zhao Cai Jin Bao Jackpot slot paylines work both ways, i.e. from left to right and from right to left.

Only active paylines (the ones that you bet on) can record Line Wins.

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

About Payouts:

All possible winning combinations are displayed on the Paytable. 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 you land a Line Win consisting of five of a kind you will only be paid once.

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 doubles 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 win 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 it is involved in.

Dragon Jackpot:

Zhao Cai Jin Bao Jackpot slot features a Progressive Jackpot game, which is awarded randomly and is independent of the main slot game. If you gain entry to the Dragon Jackpot Game you will be guaranteed to win one of four Progressive Jackpots. A winning result is not needed in the main game to gain entry to the Jackpot game.

Progressive Jackpots are funded by taking a small percentage of each player’s wagers and using that to fund the award. The Dragon Jackpot is featured across several casino games, and as such the Jackpot grows by taking a percentage of player’s bets on all Dragon Jackpot games. The casino will provide a base amount (called a seed) to ensure that the jackpot remains relatively large if won twice by two players in quick succession.

As the Dragon Jackpot Game is awarded randomly you do not need to make a specific bet to be eligible for it. However, the higher the bet you make the greater your chances are of being awarded the Dragon Jackpot.

When the Dragon Jackpot is awarded to you:


  • A new screen is launched. On the left of the screen is a wheel with 10 Jackpot segments: 4 Green, 3 Blue, 2 Red and 1 Yellow. On the right of the screen the four Progressive Jackpot awards are displayed. Each Jackpot corresponds to a colour on the wheel – Yellow, Blue, Green and Red. Yellow is the highest Jackpot award, with Green the smallest amount.
  • You will be prompted to spin the wheel by clicking on Spin button (in the centre of the wheel). Each time the wheel lands on a segment it will be ‘collected’ and saved on the right of the screen. When you have ‘collected’ three of the same colour, you will be awarded the corresponding Jackpot award.
  • When a Jackpot is awarded the Dragon Jackpot game ends. A summary screen will appear showing your Jackpot win, as well as anything won in the triggering spin.

Please note: the Dragon Jackpot game works on a timer. If you do not make your choices in the allotted time, a Jackpot will be randomly awarded to you.

The Dragon Jackpot is awarded and funded as described below:

Seed (base amount provided by casino for jackpot) – Green = €10, Blue = €100, Red €1000, Yellow €20000.

Contribution Rate (amount taken from each bet to fund Jackpot) – 1%.

Win Condition (result needed to win Jackpot) – Dragon Jackpot is awarded randomly. You are guaranteed to win one of four Jackpots on entry to the game.

Win Requirement (how to be eligible for Jackpot) – Simply play Zhao Cai Jin Bao Jackpot slot at William Hill Casino.

Please note the following:

  • The four Jackpot amounts are displayed in Euros. You will be paid the equivalent amount in GBP, or any other currency that you are playing in.
  • The software used ensures that two Jackpots cannot be won simultaneously.

Return to Player:

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot at William Hill Casino is 96.08%, which includes the 1% Dragon Jackpot contributions.
