Eastern Emeralds was created by Quickspin and takes you to the heart of the Asian wilderness. With 5 reels and 20 paylines, you can spin away on this beautiful game from 20p to £100 a spin on all devices. It comes with multiplier wilds in the base game and the free spins feature which can combine to give you a whopping 1,680x multiplier!
Visually, Eastern Emeralds is very tranquil with a beautiful mountain range in the background – symbols on the reels include oriental A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as coins, golden ingots, turtles, fish and dragons. The dragon is the most rewarding symbol giving you 7.5 times your stake for 5 across a payline. There’s also a wild which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter – it appears only on reel 1.
Now, you’ll also see Multiplier Wild symbols appear on all 5 reels – they substitute for all symbols bar the scatter. They have a multiplier value of 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x and 5x – if 2 or more Multiplier Wild symbols combine on a payline, their values are multiplied. This can result in an 120x multiplier on every base game spin.
Eastern Emeralds is all about the Destiny Bonus feature which is played when 3 Bonus scatter symbols, the phoenix rising from the flames, appear simultaneously on the 3 middle reels. You then choose from 4 free spins options – they are as follows:
- 6 free spins with 5x, 6x, 7x and 8x multipliers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively
- 9 free spins with 4x, 5x, 6x and 7x multipliers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively
- 12 free spins with 3x, 4x, 5x and 6x multipliers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively
- 15 free spins with 2x, 3x, 4x and 5x multipliers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively
Now, the option with fewer free spins carry a higher risk but have bigger potential for a higher win. In terms of the multiplier wild symbols, the lower multipliers start on reel 2 and go up with each reel. As in the base game, 2 or more multiplier wilds combining on a payline will multiply the values – here’s what you can win depending on what option you choose:
- 6 free spins option – 1,680x multiplier with maximum win of 2,667 times your stake per free spin
- 9 free spins option – 840x multiplier with maximum win of 2,289 times your stake per free spin
- 12 free spins option – 360x multiplier with maximum win of 987 times your stake per free spin
- 15 free spins option – 120x multiplier with maximum win of 382 times your stake per free spin
Overall, I really like Eastern Emeralds – apart from looking good, the win potential is huge due to the unseen wild multipliers that can combine to devastating effect. Saying that, it’s a medium variance game with maximum wins of 2,667 times your stake on every free spin involving the illustrious 1,680x multiplier! If you like Quickspin titles, I highly recommend you try Dwarfs Gone Wild which has plenty going on.
