Kung Fu Rooster

Kung Fu Rooster is a 5 reel, 3 row, 12 payline Chinese-themed video slot game developed by RTG software. Released first at a limited number of casinos in July 2017, it was designed to honour the Chinese Year of the Rooster. The rooster zodiac comes round every 12 years and this corresponds to the fire element this year – the first time rooster and fire have corresponded since 1957. The rooster theme is depicted through the rooster symbol which is the wild in the game, and the fire theme is depicted through the red colours and Fire Claw Multiplier feature that can be randomly triggered during the free spins bonus round. While not yet widely available, the game can already be enjoyed at a number of top online casinos, such as: 

  • Springbok Casino 
  • Thunderbolt Casino 
  • Silver Sands Casino 

How to Play 

Kung Fu Rooster is a Chinese themed game based on the zodiac of the rooster and therefore the rooster is the most important symbol in the game and the one you will want to keep an eye out for as the reels spin. The high paying symbols are all related to the theme, while even the low paying card value symbols are designed to look like Chinese symbols.  

The symbols in the game include: 

  • Yin Yang ornament 
  • Lotus flower 
  • Decorative knife 
  • Nunchucks 
  • Purple 9 
  • Blue 10 
  • Pink J 
  • Green Q 
  • Orange K 
  • Red A 
  • Monkey – This white haired character is the kung fu master. He acts as the scatter symbol, activating the free spins bonus round when three or more land in any positions on the reels. 
  • Rooster – This is the wild symbol and also the highest paying symbol in the game. It can land stacked on every reel and if it does this to cover the entire reel set, it will pay out the maximum fixed jackpot of 50,000 coins. As the wild symbol, it substitutes for any other symbol, with the exception of monkey the scatter symbol, to help create a winning combination. 

The game has betting range of $0.01 to $12.00 per spin, making it accessible to players with all sizes of bankrolls. 

Jackpot 

Kung Fu Rooster is a non-progressive game with a fixed jackpot of 50,000 coins that can be won by spinning up the wild rooster to cover all 15 positions on the five reels. This is a high variance game with a small number of paylines, but a high fixed jackpot.

Special Features 

Kung Fu Rooster is attractive for its free spins bonus round, multiplier feature and stacked wild symbols. 

  • Stacked Wild Symbol – The wild rooster symbol lands stacked and can cover all three positions on all the reels. If all 15 positions are covered by the rooster on a single spin, it awards the maximum fixed jackpot. 
  • Final Trials Free Spins Bonus – Three or more monkey scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reels activates the Final Trials free spins bonus. Players will receive between 10 and 25 free spins. The free spins cannot be re-triggered from within the feature. 
  • Fire Claw Multiplier Feature – This is a randomly triggered multiplier feature that is only available during the free spins bonus round. When it triggers, it awards an increasing multiplier value, starting at 1x on the first spin and increasing by 1x on every free spin up to a maximum of 25x by the 25th free spin. 

Graphics and Sounds 

Kung Fu Rooster is a visually attractive slot game with beautiful and calming graphics in the background and bright colourful symbols on the reels. The reels are encased by a golden frame, decorated in red designs. The background of the reels is a granite colour, although the background scene is faintly visible behind them. The brightly coloured symbols stand out on this background. The background depicts an old stone staircase leading up a steep mountain into the clouds. On either side of the reels are beautiful stone pagodas and cherry trees in full blossom. The soundtrack fits in with the theme with its Chinese music creating a tranquil atmosphere for the game. 

Bottom Line 

Kung Fu Rooster is a new addition to the RTG slot suite and while it has a limited number of bonus features, it offers players the opportunity to win impressive payouts on every spin in the base game. The stacked wilds, together with the free spins bonus round and randomly triggered multiplier feature, give players many reasons to keep on spinning the reels. The familiar theme has been beautifully designed with top graphics that are both calming and vivid at the same time. The 50,000 coin maximum fixed jackpot is certainly an impressive addition to this game.
