Asian themes are a favourite genre amongst slot players, which is why developers continue to pump out new versions including Eastern Emeralds from Quickspin.
Eastern Emeralds slot game is rich with graphics and features that include multiplier wilds and four free spin modes with varying risk and return profiles for prizes of up to 1,680x!
Wealth, Good Fortune & Longevity
Quickspin has designed a 5-reel and 20 fixed paylines slot with thematic graphics bursting with colour, imagery and imagination that include rolling mountains in the background.
The upper-value symbols are represented by golden trinkets: a traditional coin, Feng Shui Fu Dog statue, a koi statue, a turtle statue, sycee ingot and traditional coins. The symbols and colours represent wealth, good fortune and longevity.
Rather uninspiring, but popular none the less, are the five poker symbols that make up the lower-value end. As is standard in Asian-themed slots, this one has a Chinese tune that feels right at home with the artwork.
The Multiplier Wild
The multiplier wild may appear on any of the five reels with the ability to substitute for any of the other symbols except for the bonus scatter.
The wilds are multiplicative when appearing on the same winning payline. Their values during regular games can range from x1 to as much as x5, corresponding to the reel that they appear on.
Additionally, they can form their winning payline where 3, 4 or 5 will handsomely reward up to 125, 300 or 750 respectively. We were delighted to find that multiplicative wins were not unusual.
A red phoenix scatter symbol may appear on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reels and combinations of all three will unlock the Destiny Bonus Feature. At this point, you are presented with four options from which to choose.
The options are six free spins for up to 1,680x, nine free spins for up to x840, 12 free spins for up to x360 or 15 free spins for up to x120. The reason for the different top payouts is the potential value of the wild multipliers that can appear which can reach as high as x8.
This feature is difficult to trigger but worth the wait as it was fun and potentially very rewarding.
Destined for Greatness
Eastern Emeralds slot can be played with a range of wagers starting from 0.20 and climbing to 100. The game has a return to player (RTP) towards the high side of 96.58%.
The developer has stated that this is a low volatility game meaning that you are likely able to play it for longer with a smaller bankroll.
Just as importantly the slot is configured for desktop, mobile or tablet so you can even play it when you’re on the go. All you’ll need is an Android or iOS device and a reliable Wi-Fi connection.
Boasting a 1,680x win multiplier which the developer states are one of the highest in the industry, this July 2018 release would seem destined for greatness.
