Eastern Emeralds Slot Overview
Have you been keeping your eye on Quickspin lately? If not, you should. The Scandinavian game designer is showing that the north is the place to go for online video slots innovation at the moment. They’re pouring out great looking games, and in their Eastern Emeralds slot have an even better gimmick than any number of beautiful symbols – an enormous win multiplier that could deliver genuinely life-changing returns.
The theming of this game is Far Eastern. We’re no cultural experts, but it features gently plucked instruments and a number of symbols from Japanese or Chinese culture.
Eastern Emeralds slot game looks great, like almost all Scandinavian games do at the moment. It’s simple and easy to understand with really smart colours and a great elegance to the design. A pleasure to have on your screen in fact.
Under the lovely surface sheen, the machinery of the game is relatively simple: a 5 by 3 grid, with betting from 0.2 to 100 coins producing a theoretical return to player of 96.58%, which is generous.
Beyond the mountains
The backdrop of peaceful mountains sits behind our reels, with squared off, minimal symbols. They start with a run through a deck of cards from 10 to Ace before the higher paying symbols that reflect the game’s theme: carp, turtles, jewellery, and most valuable, a dragon that pays 7.5-times stake for a full set of five.
Above that is the wild, the emerald of the title, that also pays out that amount. Wilds also function as a multiplier, multiplying your win by the number of the reel on which they land. It’s in this function that you’ll see them helping to create the biggest win in the base game, a 900-times stake pay-out!
Let joy be uncontained!
It’s the scatter that you’ll want to see, a phoenix. Three of these trigger free spins. You then decide how you want to play your spins by choosing between four options that trade off the number of free spins (6, 9, 12 or 15) against multipliers (from 2x to 8x).
If you’ve been wondering where those life-changing figures are coming from, well, we’re there now, because the multipliers, plus a big stake, plus the biggest multiplier total could give you a pay-out of 12,600x your initial stake.
This has come out with a deal of publicity that claims actual wins in test play of up to 16,003x. Wow!
It’s important to be realistic here. In testing, Quickspin went through 100 billion spins and the fact that the developers themselves rate the Eastern Emeralds slot machine as low volatility, which, in theory, means more regular but smaller pay-outs.
This huge potential is just one tempting aspect of the Eastern Emeralds slot machine game. To add to that you can add a generous return, nicely thought-out bonus delivery that will really make gamblers think, and everything else we’ve come to expect from Quickspin games – great graphics, nice sound, super smooth play, and easy-to-use interface.
If you enjoy eastern themed slots then we reckon this one could be the best reason to take a long-haul flight that we’ve seen in a while.
