There’s a class of games, which includes games like China Shores, where the potential for hundreds of free spins can make for a fun, lengthy period of time with the potential for lots of retriggers, big wins, and game time without having to wager your own money.

As such, these games are popular with a percentage of the casino players, enough so that sequels and variations of many of these games have been coming out over time.

One such version, China Shores Great Stacks, extends the reel set on a tall cabinet and further amps up the bonus potential.

That brings us to this week’s Slot Moment, courtesy of TheBigPayback. On a $2.40 bet, he got a massive 440 games on the trigger, thanks to a lot of four-reel symbols lining up.

On the original China Shores, you have the choice of going for a credit prize. On Great Stacks, three other choices are added that feature the chance for bigger multipliers, and/or some symbol reduction to increase the chances of a big line hit. Of course, those choices have less games to play.

He starts of choosing the basic 440 games option, but notices early he has the ability to go back to the choice screen at any time, helpful if you want to change things up.

Around 25 games in he swaps to one with the chance for a bigger multiplier, and the stacked symbols are limited to a couple of options, including the ability to retrigger.

He then jumps back out again after 25 or so spins on the green option, moving on to the red, which has a much bigger multiplier potential. He sees his biggest hit yet there. Finally, after 30 games, he moves on to yellow, which has the least games but the biggest potential with poker symbols completely removed.

With a few games left, he moves back to red for more of the higher multipliers. A couple of more big hits follows, and with a couple of games left, he goes for the credit prize and picks up a few more bucks.

His final score was under a handpay, but not by much, a massive outcome for that $2.40 wager, a nearly 500x win in total. It’s another great example of how you don’t necessarily need a massive wager to see a tremendous outcome.
