Taste of the Orient
Casino Technology are renowned for creating oriental-themed slot machines and Jade Heaven is yet another added to the ever-growing list. Other titles to bear the same theme are Fortune Fish, Golden Flower of Life, Dancing Dragons, Duck of Luck and Duck of Luck Returns.
Scales of dragons and symbols of gold are lavished upon the reels with cherry blossom trees waving in the breeze. If you are familiar with Casino Technology slot machines, you will no doubt recognise the layout of the slot; the reels to the centre of the screen along with paylines to the left and right and the easy to navigate control panel to the lower of the screen. Once you’ve selected your bet, you can spin those reels. Splashes of colour will explode onto your screen when the symbols drop into place, these symbols are Chinese emperor, kung-fu fighter, Chinese princess, Yin and Yang symbol, tiger, golden tortoise, golden frog and card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
The frog, tortoise, tiger and Yin and Yang symbols are considered to be lucky symbols in Chinese culture, so it’s no surprise to see them being a prominent feature of this slot game.
To trigger the non-progressive jackpot of 300,000 coins, you’ll need to risk it all by betting maximum stakes of 450 coins. Land five of a kind of the Chinese emperor symbols on your payline and the slot will release that eye-watering jackpot into your bankroll. The second highest payout comes from four of a kind of the Chinese Emperor symbols, this dishes out 75,000 coins.
Other high paying symbols include; Yin and Yang with 45,000 coins and the kung-fu fighter with 22,500 coins.
Keep your eyes peeled for the Chinese Emperor, because should he complete a five of a kind payline – he will double the value of that symbol, more about this later on.
We previously highlighted that the Chinese Emperor symbol can double the value of the symbols (bar scatter), so now we’ll explain how. With him being a wild, he has more than just one feature, so should you land four of a kind of a specific symbol with the Chinese Emperor falling to complete that payline to five of a kind, the stated value will double.
It sounds a little complicated, but if you land four of the kung-fu fighter symbols with a wild completing that payline – you will not receive 22,500 coins as stated, it will double to 45,000 coins. The wild symbol also pays the non-progressive jackpot and replaces other symbols on the reels (except scatter) to help you create winning paylines.
Look out for the Yin and Yang symbol as this is your scatter, 3 or more and you will receive 15 free spins. During the free spins bonus, a 3x multiplier will be added to all wins and you can re-trigger the free spins bonus too.
Double Up – this allows you to gamble your initial base game win for a 2x or 4x multiplier. Guess the correct colour or suit of cards to win.
Out Verdict on the Game
Jade Heaven slot machine is a medium to high variance slot machine, but deposit this – you have numerous ways of spinning in the wins and walking away with a fortune.
Unlike traditional slot machines, you don’t need three of a kind to win with this game, because the kung-fu fighter, Chinese princess, wild, scatter and card value of 9 – allow you to win when matching just two of a kind.
