Kung Fu Rooster Review

Kung Fu Rooster is a new video slot game with a Chinese theme. Developed by RTG, it has 5 reels, 3 rows and 12 paylines. It was released at a limited number of exclusive casinos in mid-July 2017, before it is more widely released. The game celebrates the Chinese year, which this year is the year of the Rooster. Each zodiac comes round every 12 years and corresponds to one of the five elements. In 2017, the rooster zodiac corresponds to the fire element, the first time since 1957. The game’s theme is represented with the wild rooster symbol, as well as the Fire Claw Multiplier feature that is randomly triggered during the free spins feature. The game can already be played at a number of top online casinos for South African players, including:

  • Springbok Casino
  • Silver Sands Casino
  • Yebo Casino

How to Play

Kung Fu Rooster slot has 5 reels and 12 paylines and includes a free spins bonus round and random multiplier feature, as well as a 50,000 coin maximum fixed jackpot available on any spin in the base game. It is based on the Chinese Year of the Rooster, with the fire element and the symbols in the game, adding to the theme. 

The high paying symbols include:

  • Yin Yang ornament
  • Lotus flower
  • Decorative knife
  • Nunchucks 

The low paying symbols include:

  • Red A
  • Orange K
  • Green Q
  • Pink J
  • Blue 10
  • Purple 9 

The special symbols include:

  • Scatter symbol – The white haired monkey kung fu master. Landing three or more scatters anywhere on the reels triggers the free spins bonus round.
  • Wild symbol – The kung fu rooster. It substitutes for any symbol, other than the monkey scatter symbol, to contribute to creating a winning combination. It is also the jackpot symbol. It appears stacked on the reels and if it lands stacked on every reel to cover all 15 available positions, it triggers the maximum fixed jackpot of 50,000 coins. 

The game is suitable for players with all sizes of bankroll, particularly penny slots players, with its betting range of R0.01 to R12.00 per spin.


Kung Fu Rooster has a fixed jackpot of 50,000 coins which is triggered when the wild rooster symbol lands all 15 positions of the five reels on a single spin. It is a high variance game due to the small number of paylines, alongside the high fixed jackpot.

Mobile Version

Kung Fu Rooster has been launched for play via desktop and mobile. It is suitable for Android, iOS or Windows smartphone and tablet devices, allowing players to enjoy the game via their desktop or on the go.

Special Features

Kung Fu Rooster can be enjoyed with its special features which are designed to increase your chances of winning on every spin.

  • Stacked Wild Symbol: The wild rooster is a stacked symbol that lands on all three positions on any of the reels on a single spin. If it covers all 5 reels on one spin, it pays out the maximum fixed jackpot.
  • Final Trials Free Spins Bonus: The free spins bonus round is triggered when 3, 4 or 5 monkey scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels. Players are awarded a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 25 free spins. The free spins cannot be re-triggered.
  • Fire Claw Multiplier Feature: The multiplier feature is only available during the free spins bonus round and it triggers randomly. This will award a 1x increasing multiplier value on every free spin, from 1x on the first spin up to 25x on the 25th free spin.

Graphics and Sounds

Kung Fu Rooster slot combines soft and calming graphics in the background with bright and vividly coloured graphics in the symbols on the reels. The background, surrounding and behind the reels, is full of beautiful pink cherry trees in full blossom between intricately designed stone pagodas. In the centre is a long narrow staircase, with old cracked decorative stones, leading up into the clouds. The reels are surrounded by a gold and red border with the dark, but transparent reels showing the background scene, while at the same time helping the brightly coloured symbols to stand out. The soundtrack of Chinese music is both tranquil and fitting for the theme of the game.

Bottom Line

Kung Fu Rooster has a familiar Chinese theme although the addition of the fire rooster to the theme does make it unique. The background graphics are typical of Chinese-themed games, while the symbols add a new dimension. The stacked wilds are particularly attractive for the 50,000 coin fixed jackpot they can help to trigger and the free spins bonus round is unique for the random multiplier feature that can be triggered at the same time. Overall, while not the most exciting game in the RTG suite of slots games, it does offer some added twists and enticing features to keep players coming back for me.
