This Quickspin Eastern Emeralds slot machine offers you some simple high volatility action across its 5 reels and 20 paylines. The question is though will it offer you the promise of big wins?
There is the potential for some big wins in this Quickspin game, the only problem is that you have to have the patience and budget to go in search for them.
Set on the backdrop of a misty Orienatal village with lanterns hanging from the trees the bright and colourful A , K, Q, J and 10’s make up the lower paying symbols.
These are mixed in with the gold coins, and statues of golden turtles, fish, hats and dragons as the highest paying ones, which all blend in with the overall slot theme you’d expect from an oriental inspired game, much like the Lucky Koi or Golden Legend slots.
So far so good. The theme, and gentle background music all welcome you to take a few spins and with the addition of the special wilds you’d expect this slot game to offer some exciting spins.
That’s what you’ll find in the base game and the free spins. In the base game each wild that shows up on a reel will have the corresponding multiplier attached.
So say a wild appears on reel 3 it will come with 3x multiplier, if one shows up on reel 5 it will have a 5x multiplier. You get the gist.
But what’s potentially special about these is that if two or more multipliers show up on a winning payline, they will multiply together. So say the 3x and 5x showed up on the winning bet line that would be a 15x multiplier.
There is potential, but throughout our hundreds of base game spins we didn’t manage to see that potential come to fruition. In fact the biggest wins we managed was about 20x our bet, which means that we were either incredibly unlucky or this is a super highly volatile game and those big wins are super rare.
Where the wilds and bigger wins do come in to play on occasion, are the free spins though.
Find three of the bonus Phoenix symbols which only show up on reel 2, 3 or 4 during the base game and you’ll get to Choose Your Destiny.
And by that we mean you’ll get a choice of 4 free spins each ranging from the more free spins with less multiplier and lower risk to the less free spins with more multiplier but higher risk.
And those multipliers happen cause the value of the wild on reel 2, 3, 4 and 5 changes depending on which choice of free spins you decide to spin.
So which would we take? Well, we’ve tried them all and seen disappointing wins across all of them so far with only up to 16x our bet wins.
Again is that Lady Luck choosing not to grace us with any luck or is it that this game just doesn’t like to pay out? We have a feeling it’s the latter.
They do come around quite often though for a high variance machine, triggering within 100 main game spins or so, so there is a chance to get some decent rewards.
As far as Quickspin games go, this one is a little disappointing. We like high variance slots and the chance to win big, and the betting range from 0.20 up to 100 per spin definitely allows us to no matter our gambling budget.
But the fact that even in the base game the wild multipliers don’t show up often or give you those big thrills like hard hitting game likes Royal Masquerade and Book of Dead from Play’n GO do, makes us turn our heads to play some of the better slot machine games from this slots developer.
Don’t get us wrong it might just be our luck on the day, but if anything has told us from writing hundreds of slot reviews, it’s that first impressions count and if you have great features but can’t get them to gel together for great balanced game play then we aren’t coming back for more.
Even still if you like your Oriental style slots, with a chance to potentially win up to 16,000x your bet then this Eastern Emeralds mobile slot or online slot is worth a few spins.
Who knows you might get luck and hit that 1680x multiplier in the 6 free spins and never look back.
But if you do we urge you to cash out or go play on some more great big win slots, cause this one will probably gobble up your winnings like a hungry hippo.
Go try it for yourself and see if the wild multipliers will line up in your favour.Play Now at Casumo »
