Slot games that follow an Asian theme usually do well and Quickspin have certainly provided a unique game for players to experience.
Eastern Emeralds slot game follows the Asian theme expertly and provides players with some great bonus features that can help bring them the riches that many would associate with the Asian themes.
As we started our Eastern Emeralds slot review, we found that the game is played in a traditional format, which helps to keep things rather simple for bettors.
The game is played across a standard five-reel grid and has 20 paylines available. Players are able to spin from as little as R0.20 and can go as high as R100 – a betting range that appears to be the standard across many of Quickspin’s slot games.
Also standard are the additional feature buttons; the autospin option and the double speed option remain as normal for this game.
There are a number of different symbols available to form winning combinations in the Eastern Emeralds slot game, with most of them representing the Asian theme that has been followed. The low-paying icons are the traditional oriental playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10), whilst there are also coins, golden ingots, turtles, fish and dragons – with the latter paying out the most for five-of-a-kind.
There are Wilds as well. The first one can substitute all symbols except for the Scatter to form winning combinations, however it only appears on the first reel.
The second Wild is the Multiplier Wild. These come with a value of either 1x, 2x, 3x ,4x and 5x, whilst two or more of these on one spin will see the values combined.
As mentioned, there are a number of great bonus features available in this Eastern Emeralds slot game from Quickspin.
The first of note is the ‘Destiny Bonus’ feature and this is triggered when three of the Bonus Scatter symbols are landed upon. Represented by the Phoenix rising from the flames, this icon is available on the middle three reels (2, 3, and 4) and will provide players with the opportunity to choose from four Free Spins options:
- 6 free spins with 5x, 6x, 7x and 8x multipliers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively
- 9 free spins with 4x, 5x, 6x and 7x multipliers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively
- 12 free spins with 3x, 4x, 5x and 6x multipliers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively
- 15 free spins with 2x, 3x, 4x and 5x multipliers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively
It should be noted that the options with fewer free spins carry a higher risk, although the rewards are extremely high. Nonetheless, the more spins chosen does not necessarily wins will be as frequent, despite the opportunity of having a vast number to make.
