There are 12 standard symbols in 12 Zodiacs online pokies, representing the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac: the rat, the cow, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the sheep, the monkey, the rooster, the wolf and the pig.
All standard symbols pay the same, offering 8 coins for 3 of-a-kind, 33 coins for 4 of-a-kind and 188 coins for 5 of-a-kind. All symbols pay left to right, but the scatter symbol pays in any direction.
The full moon is the wild symbol, but it only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. It substitutes for the regular symbols to help you complete winning combinations, and at random, the wilds in a combo can turn into the sun, offering 3x multipliers to the prize.
The scatter is the red lantern, paying by itself a top 38 coins for 5 of-a-kind. 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger the free spins bonus game, rewarding you with 6 free spins. During this game, only zodiac symbols are available, and whenever they match, they change into scatters and pay accordingly.
We saved the best for last, as 12 Zodiacs also offers a progressive jackpot. It gets triggered randomly, so each spin is a chance to win it. The progressive jackpot wins are added to your other wins.
