Combining Oriental Features
There seems to be no end to the amount of Oriental or Asian inspired slot machines from Playtech, and Si Xiang is yet another to add to that collection. The reels of the game are encashed in gold with oriental patterns etched into the metal. Surrounding the reels is red (the Chinese symbol of luck) with dragons pressed into the screen. The control panel sits beneath the reels as it usually does, with the various options being displayed on golden buttons. Click the ‘Turbo Mode’ button and this will allow the reels to spin at a much faster rate than usual – but bear in mind, this will eat into your balance at a much faster rate too.
Autoplay allows you to play up to 99 spins automatically, this allows you to just sit and watch the game unfold without pressing spin each time. You will find only a handful of symbols on the reels, these are; Si Xiang logo, Yin and Yang logo, green dragon, snow leopard, fire eagle, turtle combined with a snake and the card values of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
You can trigger a 10,000-coin non-progressive jackpot when five of a kind of the green dragons fall on your payline. The amount that this is worth to your will increase with the stakes you place, so if you play conservatively with a small 0.09 bet – you’ll receive a much smaller cash prize to those playing 900.00 a spin.
Snow leopard will award your bankroll with 5,000 coins, fire eagle will award 1,200 coins with the turtle combined with the snake awarding 750 coins.
Si Xiang slot machine may offer some eye-watering amounts of cash, but when it comes to features, there’s not much on offer. The Ying and Yang symbol is your wild – this appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and will replace other symbols (bar scatter) to help reach winning combinations. The great thing about these wilds is, they double in value when they fall as a win line. Scatters are the Si Xiang logo and you’ll need at least two in view to trigger a win.
You can win in both directions with Si Xiang slot game – this means you can win from left to right as standard slot offer, but you can also win from right to left.
If you are looking for lots of fun and excitement with big features, then Si Xiang slot may not be for you. This medium to high variance slot machine can give big wins in a single spin, but there are no features to get your hands on. One big advantage to this slot game is the fact you can win both ways – unlike most slots on the market. The design and theme is superb and you can enjoy some effortless gameplay without the distractions of modern day slot machines. Si Xiang has a return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.00%, which is among the highest RTP’s of Playtech slots.
