What is Chinese & Lunar New Year?
The Chinese Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is the most important traditional festival in Chinese culture, dating back some 3,500+ years.
It’s possible this ancient holiday originated in the Shang Dynasty when sacrificial ceremonies in honour of gods were held at the beginning or end of each year. The date for the ceremony wasn’t fixed till the Han Dynasty when Emperor Wudi commanded to use the lunar calendar.
Legend is that the beast Nian would emerge on the eve of the new year and devour crops, livestock, and even humans. To prevent the destruction caused by Nian, people would leave food offerings on their doorsteps.
They discovered Nian feared loud noises and the colour red, so it became customary to leave red lanterns and scrolls on windows and doors to stop him from coming inside.
Today, the Lunar New Year is celebrated with traditions like family reunions, house cleaning, decoration with red lanterns and couplets, eating dumplings, and giving red envelopes with money to children.

Game Strategies & Tips to Win
When it comes to strategies and tips on how to win Lunar New Year online slots, remember that online slot machines use RNG technology to provide completely random outcomes, so they cannot be accurately predicted except by chance.
