The game window is created out of ornamental gold with the pay table sitting to the left and a multiplier wheel on the right when the free spins are in play. The creation is completed perfectly by the with a typical Chinese soundtrack and the usual accompanying reel sounds. The slot packs a mighty punch with the free spins round as well as the extra multiplier wheel that can multiply wins by as much as x6, and the stacked symbols give the player the opportunity to land a completely full screen of matching symbols or wilds to be rewarded with a huge win of x6,000 of their stake. One might expect all of the symbols to be represented by traditional lucky Chinese charms this is not the case, but they have been designed in a typical format. The lower paying symbols are represented by the single, double and triple bars with the higher payers in ascending order being the bamboo pots, double eights, a pair of Hong Bao red packets, Chinese coins, and the wild symbol.
The scatter in the game is the treasure horse carrying golden yuanbaos. Yuanbaos have been part of the Chinese culture for years and were an early currency in ancient China being found mainly in silver and gold. As a horse was also a real extravagance and luxury and provided people with a way to transport their goods to sell at the markets and a form of transportation it seemed fitting that they should become one in this slot.
Predominantly the slot is played out over three reels however when the free spins round is activated there is a fourth reel added which can award win multipliers worth from x2 to x6 of the players stake. Wins are awarded for landing adjacent symbols which range from x0.3 up to x56.6 of the players stake and for landing three of the same type of symbol. The base game in Treasure Horse can provide players with some relatively large wins, when I played, I found that I landed the best wins in the free spins round. I put this down to having the fourth reel added as this contained the win multipliers of x2 to x6 which essentially gives the chance to win a whopping x6,000 your bet. When players land a scatter anywhere on the reels, they are awarded with 8 free spins
There are more free spins on offer whilst the feature is in play by landing a treasure horse anywhere on the reels to win an additional free spin and there are no limits on the number of free spins you can win. When I played Treasure Horse, I accumulated an average of 20 free spins during one round thanks to the single treasure horse that appeared frequently. Prior to the start of the free spins the multiplier wheel appears on the right of the screen and this then spins with the other reels, but it doesn’t stop until the three main reels have stopped and settled. The multiplier that is shown in the centre of the wheel is applied to any win created by the free spin and the fourth reel is removed when the feature ends.
