The Chinese New Year is upon us, with 2018 being the Year of the Dog. Celebrations begin soon and top software company Microgaming has just announced a new slot game release based on Chinese mythology, just in time for the New Year festivities. Titled Lucky Little Gods, the five reel game has 243 ways to win and offers players the ability to spin for awesome prizes.

Microgaming provided details of the new game in a press release, showcasing the special aspects of the game. Because the game is based on Chinese mythology, the background is an ethereal realm with two gods of fortune highlighted. The game includes quality animations and colorful graphics, with several bonus features on offer.

Within the game, players will find the Golden Tree, which acts as the scatter symbol. When the Golden Tree appears on the 1st or 5th reel during the base game, the tree will start to dance. The dancing causes golden coins to rain down and coin awards are duplicated.

Another special symbol of this game is the Treasure Pot. This symbol can appear on the 3rd reel during the base game and provide additional prizes. A cash bonus will be awarded if the Little Gods appear on the reels during a non-winning spin.

The Firecracker symbol is the scatter of Lucky Little Gods, which helps to provide players with even more cash. This scatter symbol will activate the extra spins mode with the 1st and 5th reel wild during the spins to hopefully produce big wins!

The new game went live on Microgaming and Quickfire yesterday, so players can go ahead and experience everything that Lucky Little Gods has to offer! The new title joins a long list of Microgaming content available via online casino game play.
