Chang’e Goddess of the Moon is a Chinese-themed slot from Pariplay. The base game action is played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine. Trigger the bonus round and you’ll be awarded up to 50 free spins on a 243 ways to win machine. Look out too for the wilds that can lock in place for up to 5 spins. Stakes range from between 20p and £10 per spin.

Set against a backdrop of pagodas, temples and blossom trees, there’s a definite Asian feel to the design here. Joining the lower value A to 10 values are lotus flowers, ruan guitars, a block of pie and a white rabbit. The most lucrative symbol is the potion bottle with the dragon motif which awards 50 times your stake if you land 5 in combination.

The woman is the game’s wild – she can land anywhere on all 5 reels. When she does, the wild is locked in place for between 2 and 5 spins. Land 5 wilds on a payline for a 50 times stake payday.

The main feature offering is the Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing 3 or more of the archer symbol on the same spin. 3 archers will give you 10 to 20 free spins with 4 giving you 21 to 40 free spins. If you get 5 archers, you’ll be rewarded with between 41 and 50 free spins.

These free spins are played out on a new 243 ways to win reel set where winning combinations are created by landing matching symbols on adjacent reels. The sticky wilds are in play during the free spins round too. It’s not possible to re-trigger more free spins though. We landed the feature regularly and would put the variance in the medium range.

Chang’e Goddess of the Moon is the name given to the Chinese Lunar Exploration Programme – we wouldn’t quite call this slot out of this world but its combination of classy design and simple features works pretty well. It’s not the flashiest take on the Asian-themed slot but for some straightforward action Chang’e Goddess of the Moon delivers. I would strongly recommend you try some of Pariplay’s other slots like Jack in the Box and Fire vs Ice.
