Globally renowned slot developer IGT has enjoyed a busy start to 2014 and has already seen releases including the western-themed Western Belles slot and the sinister Black Widow slot receive positive reviews.
On the Reels…
However, in the turbulent industry of online casino gaming only the naive rest on their laurels and IGT have moved quick to release another slot in the form of this 5 reel, 20 payline Jewel of the Arts slot. The minimum bet of $0.01 means that players of all budgets can play this slot and there is also a maximum jackpot win of up to $250,000 up for grabs. The payout ratio is 96.08% which isn’t the best but not bad.
Immediately, fans of other Oriental slots will be right on board with this theme. The reels are rammed with Asian symbols including samurai, geishas, ancient Japanese men, origami models, Japanese fans and your regular Jack through to Ace symbols.
Geisha Gone Wild!
The Wild symbol is represented by the geisha in the red kimono. This symbol will substitute for all other symbols, except for the bonus Scatters, to complete winning combinations across the reels.
Earn 3 Free Spins with Locked Wilds in the Fan Dance Bonus
The bonus Scatters come in the form of the Fan Dance Bonus symbol. If you hit three of these symbols across the reels then you will trigger the Fan Dance Bonus where you will be handed 3 free spins. On the first free spin, the entire second reel is Wild. On the second free spin, the second and third reels are locked as Wild. For the third free spin, the second, third and fourth reels are all locked Wild giving you fantastic chances to complete winning combinations and winning big prizes.
You Can Trigger Extra Spins Too!
It is possible to earn additional free spins during the Fan Dance Bonus. This will occur if you manage to hit the Extra Spins symbol across the reels on one of the free spins you receive.
That is it for this slot though which is slightly disappointing but if there is one thing IGT know how to do well it is a straight forward slot with no messing. There’s a Wild, there’s a Scatter and there’s a free spins bonus round with locked Wilds. No science degree needed here. It won’t take IGT to the next level but it is a sound enough slot release. If you are looking for some more Oriental slots gaming then I would recommend checking out Microgaming’s fantastic Asian Beauty slot or give NextGen Gaming’s colorful Cherry Blossoms slot a try.
