Authentic Oriental Reels
The layout of this game has been adapted to make it a little bigger than what you would usually find with a video slot, so while it still has five separate reels, it also incorporates four rows alongside. Therefore, you’ll find more opportunities in this one to form wins. On the reels is where the various different symbols are housed, starting with the often seen A, J, K, Q, 9 and 5 symbols. These are accompanied by four different, beautiful Chinese girls. The first of them is dressed in blue and adorned with deep red peonies, while the second is attired in green and clutching a vibrant red flower. The third one is dressed up in yellow and holding a pink peony, while the fourth has a floral crown on her head.
As well as all of the above mentioned features, Golden Peony also includes a total of 40 separate bet lines as well, and these can be customised to suit your own personal needs. Further to this, you can fix the lines at the standard maximum of 40, or you can adjust it to 40 lines plus the extra additional feature, which we’ll discuss shortly. Not only that, but players also have the chance to change around the bet they wager per round, and this is done by altering the amount of the wager placed per active line. Here, you can choose from a range of between $0.01 and $10. This will therefore allow a maximum wager of $400 per spin, or if you have the extra feature in play, $800.
As we noted previously, there are a few specialities offered in this game, and one of them is only activated when the extra bet is placed. This is known as the ‘Scatter Bucks’ feature, which can be found in a few other products from this developer. For every wild icon appearing on the reels, a credit value will also show on it. The wild is represented by the yellow fan, and as a wild, this one will also stand in for any other symbol on the reels in order to form a winning combination, except the glowing lanterns icon. Should five of them appear on a winning pay line, you’ll receive a maximum pay out of 1,500 coins.
However, returning to the scatter bucks feature, the wild will also play the part of a scatter, and the credit value showing on it will contribute to the scatter bucks pays. Each of the reels hosts different credit value fan icons, with reel one and two offering up values between 25 and 100 credits. Reel three offers up between 25 and 2,000 credits, while reel four provides between 25 and 1,000 credits. Finally, the fifth reel offers up between 25 and 10,000 credits. At the end of each spin, these credits will be instantly added to your win balance.
Finally, there’s also the addition of the other scatter symbol, which is the one reading ‘Free Games’ on it. This can appear anywhere on reels two, three and four, and if three of them should appear across these columns, you’ll trigger the freespins round. A total of seven freespins will be awarded to you and the scatter bucks feature will continue to be in use during this.
Golden Girls and Peonies!
This is a nice game, and High 5 Games have managed to incorporate a lot of features into such a specialist type of theme. However, it all works really well, and we love playing it!
