Whilst Chinese slots often celebrate wealth with luxurious palaces and precious metal adorning every corner and symbols covered with silver, gold and gems. In contrary to this the Wu Xing slot has taken a more reserved approach with the reels looking like calligraphy, backed by a calming orange sunset. Each reel on Wu Xing is represented by one of the five elements that make up Chi, these include: Earth, Fire, Water, Wood and Metal.
The lower value symbols on Wu Xing are represented through Chinese character meaning the number 1 – 5, the high value symbols continue with this theme of Chi in being the elements represented in different coloured orbs. The soothing sound of Chinese music is always playing in the background as you initiate each spin, while electric zips and crackles eagerly fill your ears when a winning combination is reached.
While the visuals might be a surprise, the mechanics Wu Xing certainly won’t be. The playing area is the standard three rows and five reels, with 25 pay lines to play with and a maximum bet of £/$/€100. With the main game maximum payout of 400x your stake it is clear to see how this game could be profitable if you are willing to bet high. The five high symbols pay the same, so there is no symbol to excessively be hoping for and none of them disappoint either. This could explain the moderate RTP (Return to Player) of 95.12%.
The developers really went the extra mile with this slot game. Not only are you getting awesome payouts, but they’ve thrown a couple of excellent bonuses in for good measure! The first bonus is unlocked when you hit a Yin Yang Scatter on your reels: it’ll open up the Wheel Bonus Feature where one wheel will be spun to determine the scatter value that appears during free spins.
You may be lucky enough to land a scatter symbol during the first round on reel 3, which will make your scatters extra valuable and give you more free spins. The second bonus feature is just a little something to help you out while playing in the main game. This random helping hand will transform reels into reels full of matching symbols so that you can generate more wins.
