Free Prosperity Palace slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Prosperity Palace slot is about as basic as Play'n Go slots get and you may deduce from this that the volatility is higher than their usual output. This is even more apparent when compared with their other oriental-themed slots such as Golden Legend and Chinese New Year. We still hear the haunting yet peaceful sound of Chinese pipe music as we play with white reels over a temple, which is quite appropriate as the Buddha is quite important in the game as we shall discover. Don't be fooled by the Buddha's benign smile though as there is no guarantee we'll leave his temple more prosperous than when we entered!
On the reels...
The game is presented in the standard 5 reels and 3-row format as we only get 10 pay lines and the symbols aren't stacked either which indicates the pays may be quite high here for any 5-of-a-kind wins. The Green Dragon is a Wild and appears on all reels and you would certainly prosper with all 5 on a paying line as you will receive 500x your bet! There is a young child sitting on a goldfish for 100x, her little brother sitting on an orange fish for 50x and gold tokens for 25x stake for the full line. The remaining icons are card values and even these will pay either 15 or 10x bet for the 5.
There is one further icon, the Golden Buddha which appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. Should you land all 3 on the same spin you will trigger 10 free games. There is no multiplier applied to these but they can be retriggered indefinitely which has a double twist as for the duration of the free games the scatters become extra Wilds too. This bonus will be either disappointing or very rewarding - I did say Prosperity Palace is quite volatile for a Play'n Go slot!
Prosperity Palace is nothing to shout about when it comes to graphics, sounds and animations although we do get a fairly good 96.25% RTP for our money. This is no criticism as far too often games are produced with very little potential and excitement, such as Novomatic's recent attempt at a low-volatility slot, Snake Rattle and Roll. Here we get potential in both the base and bonus game and a win frequency that will ensure we get a reasonable turnover for our bankroll as we wait for the Wild Line. The final word rests upon who will actually prosper when you visit this palace - the Buddha or you?
