It’s often considered a source of good luck but can the famous green gemstone help you to a jackpot? Mega Jade is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot from Red Tiger Gaming that’s available on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The chief attraction here is the giant 3×3 symbol that can create some bumper winning opportunities. Play from between 20p and £500 per spin.

Mega Jade is a simple, fast paced affair. The design is pretty basic – the plain white reels include a selection of brightly coloured playing card symbols as well jade stones, a jade rectangle and a jade pentagon. The jade circle encased in gold is the most lucrative symbol – 3, 4 or 5 of these in 1 of the slot’s 10 paylines results in a payout of 50, 100 or 500 coins.

All of the gemstone symbols can appear fully stacked and can land on multiple reels. Winning paylines can be formed starting on reels 1, 2 and 3 as long as the symbols fall on adjacent reels on the payline.

The chief attraction is the giant 3×3 gemstone symbol – whenever this lands, you’re guaranteed a winner. The giant symbol counts as up to 9 of the top paying jade circle symbol. Land the giant 3×3 symbol in full in combination with other jade circles and some spectacular payouts are possible.

You’d think a slot without any free spins or any other features would be a little dull – Mega Jade is certainly not that. The base game action races along. The game engine is super smooth and action comes thick and fast. You won’t suffer seemingly endless dry spells which drain your bankroll. Decent sized wins are certainly possible too thanks to the all-important giant jade symbol.

Our heart sank a little when we checked the paytable and found a distinct lack of features. We needn’t have worried though – there was more than enough action on offer to make up for any like of free spins or cash trails.

With its HD design, quality Chinese-style soundtrack and rollicking base game action, we found Mega Jade a surprisingly entertaining and enjoyable slot. If you like the Chinese theme, Red Tiger Gaming offers plenty with Golden Offer and Three Kingdoms recommended.
