The name of this game, Bull in a China Shop, makes you think of a crazy, chaotic game that can be a lot of fun to play, and that is exactly the case with this offering from Play’n GO. Try to tame this raging beast and pick up some exciting wins and combos along the way!
The game has a distinct Chinese theme, and as the name suggests, it is set in a china shop, which looks like a pottery store run by a Chinese lady. The soundtrack is also quite suitable, and adds to the overall ambience of the game.
The game has five reels and three rows with 20 paylines. Winning combinations are created by landing three or more matching symbols from left to right across any of the 20 paylines.
Players can bet from $/€/£0.10 up to $/€/£100 per spin.
The symbols are encased in a traditional Chinese design, other than the high-value symbols, which are bordered by a more ornate design. The base icons for the game are playing card suit symbols that are decorated and designed in a very elaborate and colourful manner, while the high-paying symbols include porcelain vases and pots of different shapes, sizes and colours, while the shop owner herself also appears on the reels. She is the most valuable symbol in the game, paying out 50x, 100x or 250x of your stake if you land three, four or five of her on the reels. The same payouts are also applicable for the Wild Bull, which can land on all five reels and also substitutes for all other symbols other than the golden bull, which is the game’s Scatter symbol.
There are a number of bonuses available in this game, with the Wilds being central to most of them. These Wilds can land as stacked Wilds, to increase your payouts, or even have multipliers attached to them, which again helps to increase your win. The bull is the game’s Wild, and other than potentially providing the wins mentioned above and also substituting for other symbols, it can also provide one of these three bonuses in the base game –
The Free Spins feature is triggered when you land the golden bull on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. Here too, there are three potential spin features for the player to choose from, each of which will award the player with 10 free spins.
This round can be retriggered as well if the scatter lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 again, but this can only be done once, for a potential maximum of 20 free spins.
This slot game has a return to player (RTP) of 96.2%, which is quite good, considering that this is only a medium volatility game.
Bull in a China Shop is a superb game from Play’n GO, which makes use of a specific theme really well. The gameplay is simple, but the Wilds have the potential to deliver some huge wins, both in the base game as well as in the free spins round.
