My Fair Pearl is a Playtech slot with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Playable from 30p to £150 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, the game draws inspiration from a popular Chinese television costume drama. It comes with double wild wins and a Free Spins feature where you can play with up to 50 free spins with a multiplier up to 6x applied!

Visually, My Fair Pearl is colourful with the reels encased into a traditional temple. With a beautiful beach and mountain range in the backdrop, symbols on the reels include Chinese-style A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as hearts, soup bowls, butterflies, rings and Chinese dragons. The latter is the most rewarding symbol giving you 16.66 times your stake for 5 on a payline. To form winning combinations, you need to start from reel 1 and have symbols on successive reels.

The female character is the wild symbol which replaces all symbols bar the scatter – it only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. When you get a winning combination involving the wild, the wild doubles your outcome. The scatter is the temple and pays any way – 2, 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 5, 10 or 50 times your stake respectively.

When you get 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter appearing anywhere on the reels, you will activate the Free Spins feature – this will give you 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. During the feature, all wins are subject to a 3x multiplier meaning all outcomes are trebled.

Furthermore, 3 or more scatters will retrigger the feature giving you the possibility to play with up to 50 free spins. Now, if the wild symbol forms part of a win during the feature, the 3x multiplier is doubled to give you a potentially lucrative 6x multiplier.

If you were to fill the screens with Chinese dragons as well a 1 wild, you would win 3,000 times your total stake. If you filled the screens with temple scatters, you would be taking home 4,500 times your stake (50x times x 30 paylines with a 3x multiplier).

My Fair Peal is quite a simple slot in reality – it looks rather nice but it’s medium to high variance meaning you will have to be patient to trigger the all-important Free Spins feature. Saying that, it does have the potential to pay out big sums, especially if the wild forms part of winning combinations. If you like big multipliers, X-Files (by Playtech) can see multipliers combine to give you a 25x multiplier on each base game/free spin.
