Gung Pow Slot

Gung Pow SlotNowadays, all players are familiar with game cloning and game reskinning. But did you ever hear about game mirroring? If not, get ready.

Simplified:

Cloning is when 1 company stole the model of another company’s creation and gave a few twists to disguise it;

Reskinning is when 1 company remakes its own (supposedly successful) creation after some time and changes the exterior, the apparel superficially;

Mirroring is… when for no particular reason, 1 company releases some years later the same game.

  • Microgaming Company developed and released the Gung Pow slot in 2012. Dedicated to the Chinese New Year, this Medium Volatility 243 win ways machine with an RTP of 96.19% and a maximum payout of 90 000 CAD is abundant with fireworks, crackers, lanterns, sparkles, and lucky amulets. In addition, the game comes with Free Spins and a multiplier of 3x for all the wins in them.
  • Microgaming Company developed and released the Lucky Firecracker slot in 2015. Dedicated to the Chinese New Year, this Medium Volatility 243 win ways machine with an RTP of 96.19% and a maximum payout of 90 000 CAD is abundant with fireworks, crackers, lanterns, sparkles, and lucky amulets. In addition, the game comes with Free Spins and a multiplier of 3x for all the wins in them.

Do you suppose we made a mistake by writing the same paragraph twice? No. We change 1 thing - the name. If you are familiar with our previous columns on game reskinning, you should know that we think the developers are taking a shortcut with that habitude, and with the mirroring, we believe they went too far. See, we have only a skeptical /negative opinion and position of an utter disappointment of such providers. 

In Microgaming’s case, it can be that the mirroring is a result of shifting from Flash to JS and HTML5. Well, that is just an upgrade - it doesn’t need a new name and a whole new presentation as a totally separate game. So, we reckon it’s a mistake on Microgaming’s part, but why is it not repaired/straighten up after so many years?

Feel free to check the Gung Pow slot in the DEMO version on our site. And you can compare it with the other game.

Recommendations

  • As usual, our first advice is to determine the optimal bet (given your starting investment has to be sufficient for at least 300 spins).
  • Second, we suggest that you hold on firmly to that bet as the slot commonly rewards a Bonus round within 1 cycle of around 200-250 spins.
  • And finally, if you manage to increase your capital by 30-35%, we strongly suggest that you leave the game for a day (and return the next day, or just switch to another Microgaming slot).
