Cai Fu is an online slot developed by Iconic Gaming. 

It has five reels, three rows and 243 payways. Unfortunately, the game’s RTP is not recorded by the maker and has not been calculated by any other source. Neither is there any information on its variance level. It deals with expeditions launched by the Chinese empire to find gold and treasure. It features wilds, scatters and free spins.


Thematically this is less specific than some of the Iconic Gaming demo slots in the company’s portfolio, and all that really matters is landing the best combinations without worrying too much about context. In this respect it is reminiscent of Pragmatic Play’s Caishens Gold slot, although Iconic’s inherent grasp of Asian design traditions sets it apart from competitors originating from outside Asia. As ever, it makes sense if you are thinking about gambling real money to try out the free slots versions before committing yourself.

Cai Fu has a five-reel, three-column grid with 243 payways. The minimum bet is 1.50 and the maximum is 750.00. There are 10 regular symbols: a peacock, a ship, a tortoise, a wonton, a lucky coin and the five highest playing cards.

Theme, Graphics and Soundtrack

We glimpse the impressive background of a temple’s interior which is only partly obscured by the semi-opaque reels. The symbols are beautifully drawn with wonderful detail and rich colours. The music is a fairly serene piece played on strings accompanied by light percussion and suits the visuals very well.

Cai Fu RTP and Variance

The makers have not provided any details of what the game’s RTP is. The variance is similarly unquantified.

How to Play Cai Fu

  1. Cai Fu has 243 win ways. The objective is to land combinations of the same symbol in adjacent positions across the reels, counting from left to right.
  2. You’ll see a minus and a plus button on the screen. Click on either of these to change the number until you find the bet with which you wish to play.
  3. Open the auto play and turbo mode options by clicking the small play button which you see in the top right of the screen. This will turn the minus button into the auto mode button on the left of the main play button. Click this new auto button to select a number of automatic spins from a choice of 20, 50, 100 or 300 or to spin continuously until you cancel. The number of spins which remain until you need to reset will be shown on the play button. If you wish to leave auto mode at any time, simply click the number that is displayed.
  4. When the auto button replaces the minus, you will see that a lightning bolt has replaced the plus sign. You can click on this to activate the fast play mode. Click it again to exit fast play mode.
  5. Press the play button to start the reels spinning at the selected bet level. You may use the space bar to spin them. You can stop the reels whenever you wish by pressing the play button or the space bar again.
  6. The wild can replace any symbol except for the bonus symbol. The wild appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4.
  7. If you land three or more bonus symbols, you will trigger a free spins bonus. Three bonus symbols will award two times the current bet amount.
  8. We are committed to safe gambling initiatives, including BeGambleAware. We encourage you always to play responsibly. If you wish to play for money, you should remember that you could lose as well as win. Ensure you keep within the limits of what you can afford. When the game stops being fun you should stop playing.

Cai Fu Bonus Features

Free Spins Bonus

When the bonus symbol appears on reels 1, 2 and 3 you can win seven free games. In the free games the five high-paying symbols can be connected from left to right to score wins. A combination of five is doubled but calculated only once.

In free games a symbol will appear at random and the other symbols will convert into the symbol which appeared randomly.

If three bonus symbols appear during a free game, you can win an additional seven free games. The maximum number of free games you can win is 777.

Cai Fu Review: Our Verdict

This has the usual strong graphics that Iconic Gaming is known for, and the game play itself is entertaining as far as it goes. With such a visually rich subject we thought there might be room for a bonus feature. When you win free spins a temple door opens, but before you are ushered in the grid reappears and you are back where you began. An opportunity missed, but Iconic Gaming doesn’t seem to put much emphasis on genuine bonus games, which is a shame.

What is the RTP and variance of Cai Fu?

Unfortunately, there is no official or third-party information on the Return to Player, but the variance has been measured as medium.

What are RTP and variance?

RTP means Return to Player. This percentage is a guide to the average level of your expected winnings compared to the amount you have wagered in the course of one session. Variance ranges from low to high. It indicates the size and frequency of wins. A high-variance game will give you occasional large pay-outs, while low-variance games will pay wins more often but they will be smaller.

Is there a secret to winning online slots?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to beat the game, as it operates entirely according to chance. There is no correlation between one spin and the next.

Are the spins genuinely random?

Yes, totally. The game uses random number generation algorithms to govern the spinning of the reels, and these operate without human involvement..
