Jade Magician is a 5 reel, 15 payline slot powered by Play ‘N Go. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 15p to £75 per spin, it has an Asian theme and uses an adjacent pays system whereby you are rewarded with wins when combinations of adjacent symbols appear on paylines – there are also 2 bonus features.
Visually, Jade Magician is what you’d expect from a Play ‘N Go powered game – it looks superb with high definition graphics and animations. With the Jade Magician herself overseeing proceedings on the reels, symbols include 4 ornamental gemstones (made of jade of course) as well as eagles, white tigers and dragons.
The dragon is the most rewarding giving you 2,500 coins for 5 on a payline. There is also a x2 wild multiplier symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the bonus scatter – when part of a winning combination, it doubles your payout. It only appears on the middle reel (reel 3).
The Jade Magician is the scatter symbol – if you get 2 on the reels on the same spin, you will trigger the Second Chance feature. You then choose 1 of 4 symbols to reveal an award – you can win a small cash prize or find the hidden scatter to trigger the Free Spin feature.
The Free Spin feature can also be played when you get the Jade Magician scatter simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5. Once you’re in, you will receive 5 free spins. As well as the x2 multiplier wild, the Jade Magician symbol becomes an extra wild for the duration of the feature.
Furthermore, get 3 scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 during a free spin will give you an extra 5 free spins. If you get 1 or 2 scatters on the reels, you will get 1 or 2 extra free spins (respectively). You can retrigger the feature various times with up to 50 free spins in total available.
I found Jade Magician to be a medium variance title with big wins available in the base game due to adjacent pays and the x2 multiplier wild. However, the bigger wins will come in the Free Spin feature especially if you manage to get a few extra free spins. Medium variance, there are possible wins of up to 3,000 times your stake on each spin. I recommend you try other Play ‘N Go titles with Grim Muerto particularly good.
