Return to Player (RTP)
Though this slot packs decent features, its RTP is set low at 95.3%.
From free spins to lucky multipliers and jackpots, Cai Shen slot truly meets up to its name. The God of Wealth is ever generous on these reels, however, the base game might not offer the most encouraging payouts so you would have to work your way to the bonus features for impressive wins.
