Play’n Go will be kicking off the new year with the release of Jade Magician as early as this coming Thursday, January 26, 2017. This appears to be yet another fantasy themed slot continuing the trend from the previous year. The Jade magician herself looks just as stunning as any of the beauties in 7 Sins, released this past November (2016), with emerald eyes and flowing black hair. An early peek at the demo version reveals that this online slot effectively blends mysticism with the Orient and offers an RTP of 96,53% with the chance to win as much as 225,000 coins in a single round!
A Closer Look
Jade Magician has 3-rows and 5-reels filled with 10 mysterious symbols. There are 3 high-paying symbols represented by mythological creatures such as a Golden Dragon, Immortal Phoenix and White Tiger. These high-paying symbols have the potential to award as much as 2500 coins for a 5 of a kind match. 4 jade stones, covered in magical symbols representing air, water, fire and earth, serve as the low-paying symbols. This slot also has a Wild that only appears on reel 3 and a Free Spin Scatter symbol that triggers a bonus.
A rather unique feature that sets Jade Magician apart, is its ability to award wins of 3 – 5 of a kind starting from reels 1, 2 or 3 respectively. When compared to most online slots which only allow winning combos to start from reel 1 or reel 5, Jade Magician feels a bit unique.
There appears to be great flexibility in the bet options with 15 adjustable pay lines and the opportunity to bet up to 5 coins per line. The coin value can be set from as little as 0.01 allowing players to bet as little as 1p per spin. The Total Bet range (as demonstrated by the demo) is 1 – 75 coins or 1p – £75 currency. With a maximum bet selected, it is certainly possible to win up to £225,000 during gameplay.
A bonus screen appears when triggered by 2 Scatters. Players may pick from 4 symbols for the chance to activate either a round of Free Spins or an instant coin win. It is possible to retrigger up to a maximum of 50 Free Spins in a single bonus round!
Wilds that complete winning combos automatically award double payouts!
