Where to play?
Eastern Emeralds is a medium variance Chinese themed video slot from Quickspin that has 20 paylines, 5 reels and pays a top jackpot (non-progressive) of 2,667x your stake on a single spin.
In terms of bonus features it has a lot going for it. During the main game there are Multiplier Wild and Destiny Bonus features. The Destiny Bonus mode gives you a choice between huge multiplier wilds and extra free spins although the multipliers are a tad smaller.
If you decide to go for the option that’s more volatile with an incredible 1,680x multiplier, the net result is a huge payout of 2,667x your stake. Basically you have a bonus mode during the base game that gives you wilds with multipliers and during the free spins feature the multiplier can shoot up to an incredible 1,680x!
Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see a picturesque mountain range, symbols on the reels are dragons, fish, gold ingots, turtles, wild, coins and low value cards from 10 to Aces. The symbol that pays the top cash is the Dragon, hit 5 of them on an active payline at the maximum bet you’ll pocket 7.5x your stake. The RTP or average return to player percentage of Eastern Emeralds is above 96%.
Since the multipliers are very high it’s understandable that the volatility is in the mid-range. If you’re chasing the big wins it’s best to play the game with a bankroll of £500 or more but only if you can afford it. The smallest bet per spin is £0.20 up to £100 on mobile phones (Androids, iOS, tablets) or computer desktops (Apple or Windows).
Winning combinations are completed by the wild symbol (appears only on reel 1) when it substitutes symbols adjacent to it except the scatter symbol. Multiplier Wilds pitch on all the reels, they also complete winning combos by replacing symbols adjacent to them except the scatter. Their multiplier values start at 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x up to 5x. Here’s the interesting bit, when 2 or more multiplier wilds combine, the multiplier can be as high as 120x on each spin during the main game.
Destiny Free Spins
The free spins feature is triggered when 3 scatters pitch on the reels during the base game, a new screen opens up with a Phoenix that emerges from the flames. It’s an interesting free spins feature because it gives you a choice between 4 free spins (pick one):
- The multipliers are 5x, 6x, 7x and 8x, 6 free spins are awarded.
- The multipliers are 4x, 5x, 6x and 7x, 9 free spins are awarded.
- The multipliers are 3x, 4x, 5x and 6x, 12 free spins are awarded.
- The multipliers range from 2x, 3x, 4x to 5x, 15 free spins are awarded.
Don’t know if you noticed, the fewer the free spins are the higher the multipliers but the cash prize is so much bigger too!
The lower multipliers start on the second reel and increase with each reel set. The value of each multiplier increases when they combine. Once again the payout you’ll receive depends largely on the option you’ve picked:
- When the multiplier is 1,680x it pays 2,667x your stake on each free spin, you’ll get 6 free spins.
- When the multiplier is 840x it pays 2,289x your stake on each free spin, you’ll get 9 free spins.
- When the multiplier is 360x it pays 987x your stake, you’ll get 12 free spins.
- When the multiplier is 120x the payout you can win on a single free spin is 382x, you’ll get 15 free spins.
