The look of the game is impressive with a forest backdrop in the background. There’s a Chinese style soundtrack which is more than bearable but can be muted if you so desire. The symbols are set inside a bamboo frame and include a tiger, a monkey, a bird of some kind (ask David Attenborough he’ll know), an elephant and of course a panda. We also get the nine to Ace playing card symbols padding out the rest of the reels and supplying you with a steady stream of low-paying wins.
Don’t Be Afraid of this Wild Animal
It’s the Wild Orient logo that is the wild symbol in this game. Now this can substitute for other symbols to get some wins for you but it’s not on every reel. It only appears on the second and fourth so keep an eye out for it. The wild isn’t able to sub for the scatter symbol which is the stone carving symbol as that plays a major role in activating the free spins bonus round.
There’s a fair amount to know about in this game so it’s really important to have a look at the paytable. This tells you about the winning combinations avaiable and their value, for example five elephants on an activated pay-line wins you 800x your line stake. There’s also information about the Reel Respin Feature and the bonus round.
This is an easy game to operate with the control buttons down the bottom of the screen and an autoplay feature is also available.
Three of the stone carving scatter symbols get you into the free spins round. This can be really lucrative because you are given 15 to play with and any wins you get have a 3x multiplier attached to them. Even better is the news that if at least three scatters end up on the reels again that re-triggers the free spins.
Fancy a Respin?
Another great opportunity to get some wins is via the Reel Respin Feature. After each spin of the reels (unless you’ve set an Autoplay so remember that), you have the chance to respin one of the reels. Now this is really handy if you’re just one symbol away from a decent win. However, it comes at a cost and you have to pay for the respin. The more chance you have of getting a win by going down that route, the more it’ll cost you. Yes, it might get you that win you want but that’s no way guaranteed. Be careful with this then because it can just result in you wasting your valuable account balance.
Another impressive slot from Microgaming. It has a good look to it and there are definitely some good wins to be had here. The tripling of wins in the bonus game is definitely appreciated and that can get your account balance climbing, especially if you re-trigger those free spins. The Reel Respin Feature is a good addition too but don’t use it too much.
