Ten Elements is a traditional Chinese-themed slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 40 payline game engine and available on all devices, it comes with 10 different weapon symbols that can all turn wild, a free spins round and payouts of up to 1,000 times your stake. Stakes range from between 20p and £500 per spin.
Pastel shades dominate the colour scheme in Ten Elements – set against a cloud-filled backdrop with temples and pagoda buildings, the reels include lower value A to 10 symbols alongside a purple swirl, a fan and a pink flower. The best of the standard symbols is the glow worm which awards 68, 128 or 288 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 on the same payline.
There are potentially 10 different weapon symbols that can land – each them is a wild. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds in combination and you can look forward to a payout of 68, 128 or 888 coins. These wilds can land in different formations. Some will fill a whole reel, others will be 2×2, 3×3 or even larger. This is known as the Weapons Wilds feature.
As usual with Red Tiger Gaming slots, the main feature is the Free Spins feature – it’s triggered by landing the Chinese woman scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. Once triggered, you’ll be given a choice of 3 baubles – pick 1 which will reveal how many free spins you’ve been awarded.
On each free spin, a sprinkling of magic dust will drop onto the reels and in the process deliver a selection of wilds into play – this can be any of the 10 different wilds. You could get a few single wilds, stacked wilds, matching 2×2 wilds or maybe even something bigger. Regardless, you can expect to find at least 3 added wilds on each free spin. On your 10th free spin, you are guaranteed to get a 4×4 wild symbol!
Ten Elements isn’t the most exciting Chinese-themed slot we’ve seen. The gameplay is perfectly solid though. This game is all about the wilds – expect to see them land often in their various incarnations. Multiple large wilds can deliver some impressive action – to the tune of 1,000 times your total stake per spin!
The flowery design won’t be for everyone. If you fancy a simple, Asian-themed game them Ten Elements is worth considering. If you like the Chinese theme, there’s so many slots to choose from including Pragmatic Play’s Journey to the West and Playson’s Fu Er Dai.
