Xing Guardian is powered by NextGen Gaming and has 5 reels and 1,024 ways to win. Available to play on all devices from 50p to £125 a spin, this game has a modern Chinese theme as it’s set in a fantasy dragon realm. It benefits from 3 bonus features which are described below.
Visually, it has a Chinese feel to it but in a somewhat futuristic setting which has an air of fantasy about it – set in a mystical canyon, symbols on the reels include playing cards (A, K, Q and J), water lilies, pearl rings, phoenixes and dragons. The mystical dragon is the highest value symbol giving you 75 coins for 5 on a payline.
The woman (the Xing Guardian) is the wild symbol and appears stacked on all reels – she also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. 5 of her will give you 100 times your line stake.
Look out for the Xing Guardian randomly appears on any 2, 3, 4 or 5 adjacent reels in the base game – this will trigger the Xing Guardian Locked Reels feature. They will then lock and spin together to give you the same symbols on the locked reels.
You also have the Rise of the Dragon feature which is randomly triggered in the base game – a Dragon can appear and reveal a stack of wild symbols on 1 or more reels.
The most important symbol is the yin yang as this is the scatter – if you get 3 or more anywhere in view, you will win a cash prize of up to 10 times your stake as well as triggering the Free Games feature. Here, you begin with 10 free spins. On each free spin, up to 5 adjacent reels can lock and spin together – basically, the Xing Guardian Locked Reels feature applies on each free spin. You can also get 5 more free spins each time 3 or more scatters appear during a free spin.
Visually stunning, this medium variance game can give you big wins in both the base game and Free Games feature. I like the Rise of the Dragon feature where I’ve managed 4 stacked wild reels before. In both the base game and free spins, the Xing Guardian Locked Reels feature can give you huge wins if you get high value symbols locked in place. If you like Chinese themed games, Prosperity Twin by NextGen Gaming is recommended.
