Jin Chan's Pond of Riches slot by Thunderkick brings us to the Orient for a simple and volatile game of which the splash screen screams it can pay 10,000x bet! Thunderkick are one developer who do not actually make many Chinese-themed slots, Divine Lotus being the only one to date. The mechanic seems to be similar to Quickspin's Eastern Emeralds with it's enhanced Wilds which in turn are like those incorporated into Netent's Drive: Multiplier Mayhem slot. We have reels set in a decorative pagoda surround, the stock oriental music and sounds to listen to as we spin plus some highly decorative animal symbols to complete the setting. So can our bankroll fish the riches from this here pond, or will it end up sunk to the bottom?
We are given 15 pay lines over 5 reels of 3 rows on Jin Chan's Pond of Riches slot with all symbols including Wilds appearing either single or double-stacked. The 5-of-a-kind pays are 50x bet Money Frog or Moon Wild, 20x Heron, 17.5x Carp, 15x Turtle with six card values of 6 down to 5x for a full line. No random features here but we do get Wilds which multiply according to their reel, so 1x for reel 1 and 5x on reel 5 and these in turn are multiplicative so 120x is the highest multiplier possible therefore 6,000x for a full line! The final symbol is the Gold Token scatter which appears on all reels.
You will get 8, 12 or 16 for 3, 4 or 5 scatters respectively. You get an extra spin for each one landing during the bonus and every 3 collected will earn you a randomly-placed Wild on the reels for the remaining spins. You can earn up to 3 extra Wilds in this manner maximum. Now there is also a re-spin in play whenever you get a win, so winning symbols will remain in place and the reels re-spin until no further winning symbols land. Some big potential here, we are told.
Jin Chan's Pond of Riches slot is colourful and easy on the eyes and ears but being volatile has a low win frequency. The big let-down is the poor 94.27% RTP which seems to be something offered by many developers now to please the casinos suffering from ever-increasing costs. You do hit some decent wins in the base game via those Wild multipliers but be warned, the free spins are hard to trigger and could cost a fair bit to land. When you do get them, you need as many scatters as possible for extra spins and a chance to get those Wilds added each spin, if you really want a chance at that big-pay potential. By all means visit this pond, but whatever you do don't fall in the deep end...
