Coins of Fortune has two special symbols and ten ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the scatter is a wild-and-substitute square-cored golden Feng Shui coin set on a red Chinese rug; and the second wild-and-substitute is a golden dragon with unsheathed claws, on a green background.
There are four high-paying and six low-paying symbols. The high-paying gold-framed symbols: an open-mouthed red-and-white dragon; an open-mouthed yellow-and-white phoenix; a snarling blue-and-white tiger; and an open-mouthed green-and-white dragon.
The low-paying symbols: a triangle-cored red-and-golden Feng Shui coin; a triangle-cored blue-and-golden Feng Shui coin; a triangle-cored green-and-golden Feng Shui coin; a round-cored golden Feng Shui coin; a round-cored silver Feng Shui coin; and a round-cored bronze Feng Shui coin.

The Coins of Fortune payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations are as follows. These are the high payouts. The square-cored golden Feng Shui coin, or the red dragon pays X20, X40, and X500. Phoenix pays X15, X70, and X400. Tiger pays X12, X60, and X300. Green dragon pays X10, X50, and X200.
These are the low payouts. The red-and-golden Feng Shui coin, or blue-and-golden Feng Shui coin, or green-and-golden Feng Shui coin pays X8, X30, and X125. The round-cored golden Feng Shui coin, or silver Feng Shui coin, or bronze Feng Shui coin pays X5, X25, and X100.
Three-of-a-kind in a single reel unlocks the dragon nudge rounds, where wild dragons cover that particular reel before respins progressively nudge them down. Three square-cored golden Feng Shui coins unlock the Lucky respin, where there are: walking wilds, progressively increasing win multipliers capped at X10, and sticky Feng Shui coins. An entry under the “game rules” states that the maximum win is $250,000.00; ironically, the game information on its official webpage claims that the simulated maximum payout is X6015, which (100X6015) is $601,500.00.
