According to the Chinese zodiac, 2009 is the Year of the Ox. And that means right now is a great time to shoot for a little luck with our brand new and extra ox-y online slot machine Year of Fortune. You’ll want to keep your eyes out for symbols like the Golden Ox and the Year of The Ox logo, because if you find enough of them you could soon be enjoying a fortune of your own.

Like almost all our online slot machines, you can play Year of Fortune for as little or as much as you want. In this game you always play all 25 lines, but you can make it a penny slot if you want, by just playing one cent per line. Maybe you’re feeling extra fortunate? Then play $5 per line.

As I mentioned, cross your fingers you see some of those Golden Ox symbols when you spin. They substitute for all other symbols except scattered logos and the God of Wealth (more on him later). And if you hit a winning combo that includes a Golden Ox, your prize is doubled. Hit 3 or more of those scattered “Year of the Ox” logos and say hello to the free games feature.

The feature gives you 8 free spins which is nice. But the really cool thing is that you play 88 lines per spin for your free games! And all prizes are doubled in any winning combination that contains a Golden Ox. You can also win extra free games during the feature.

And if you’re really lucky, you could hit the progressive jackpot. Unlike in a lot of our games, it’s not random in Year of Fortune. Hit 5 “God of Wealth” symbols on any pay-line and you win the big prize!

Want to give it a shot? Find it in the Slots menu. Or if you’re not already a player at Silver Oak, download our free software and you’ll be ox-ing it up in no time!
