The story behind the game
According the Chinese calendar the Year of the Ox is set to bring good fortune and happiness through hard work. At Silver Oak Casino, we want to bring it without all that hard work part. A person born during the Year of the Ox will be calm and methodical – however if you win a jackpot playing this new Real Series Video machine you are permitted to freak out and throw your hands in the air. As is expected, these people are supposed to be similar to Oxen in that they are stubborn, yet logical. Unfortunately, this is where the game differs from mythology. Year of Fortune possesses a random progressive jackpot and has huge payouts – so throw logic to the wind as you spin this game that has quickly become a favorite since released in the summer of 2009.
Scatter Symbol: Symbols that pay no matter where they land.
Random Progressive Jackpot: A jackpot that is awarded randomly, and that increases in value until it’s won.
Autoplay: Pre-setting your slot machine with a set number of automatic spins. This way you don’t have to hit the “Spin” button each time you want to play.
Feature/Bonus game: This means a number of spins you get to play for free, but where you still get to keep anything you win.
