Available on Qora Games, Year of the Rat is a 3-row, 5-reels slot game based on an Asian festivity theme. 2020, which was the year this game was launched, was the year of the rat zodiac according to the Lunar Calendar. This is where the slot game takes its inspiration from and revolves around a quirky theme of rats gathering their riches back to their abode. Massive fortunes await those who seek these riches.
Year of the Rat slot game is known for its progressive multiplier free spins feature, which can be triggered endlessly. The Firecracker symbols on the reels are the Double Wilds in this game, called so because when one or more of the substitutes in pay, that pay gets doubled. During the free spins round, each Double Wild symbol that appears on the reels is collected and increased the multiplier by 1 for all subsequent free spins. This is known as the progressive multiplier, which ceases once the Double Wilds appear on the last free spins. Multipliers start from 2x for any win and keep increasing by 1.
Double Wilds appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 and are wild for all symbols except Scatters. Players can also land 12, 15, or 20 free spins on collecting 2, 4, and 5 Scatter symbols respectively on the reels. Apart from the Scatters and Wilds, the slot reels also feature other unique symbols such as the Ingot, Red Envelopes, Gold Coins, and Oranges, which are medium- to high-paying symbols on the game. The symbols A, K, Q, J, and 10 are the low-paying ones. The Ingots are the highest-paying symbols on the reels, rewarding players with 2500 coins on landing 5 symbols on the reels, 500 for 4, 50 for 3, and 10 for just 2.
With an RTP of 96% and a maximum payout of 2400 times the original bet, Year of the Rat is a highly rewarding game. Bets on the game range from 0.50 to 100 per spin. Payouts vary based on wins and bet sizes. The game is built on HTML technology and can be played across desktops, laptops, and mobile phones.
