Eagle Shadow Fist Slots

While Jackie Chan is no longer the movie legend he used to be, his movies are still appreciated by an older crowd that enjoyed them during their primetime. He wasn’t the first to take that kung-fu action movie flick, but he was hands down one of the most successful when it came to popularizing it. And Jackie Chan has been making movies for a long time, to the point where there’s relatively obscure, Chinese films in which he only has a side role while he was still trying to get his big break into the movie business, and for many, it’s in this movie that Jackie finally stepped into the limelight to show off that he can carry that lead role. This game is part of a series that RTG are releasing based around classic Hong Kong action flicks. It offers gamblers a 5x3 playing field with 25 flexible paylines, allowing gamblers to turn them on and off at will. The big draw is the prospect of winning that juicy progressive jackpot, but on top of that, the developers left behind some goodies for gamblers who are willing to find them – Wild that doubles all wins it is a part of and Scatters that reward free spins with increased multipliers.

How to Play

When it comes to graphics, the developer certainly knows how to make the slot atmospheric. The downpour of rain over an idyllic Chinese village is gorgeous, and we like the reels being done as strips of paper. The view is peaceful and calm, much like the village itself is in the movie before the Japanese invasion happens and Jackie Chan and his comrades have to fight off the enemies who want to take their home. Not too much to praise or commend here, but we do wish some light animation in the backdrop was happening, as it would make the rain a lot smoother to watch. On the gameplay side of things, it plays with a clear focus being wrapped around the progressive jackpot. There’s no denying there are some good scores you win from the RTG’s release, but there’s also the fact that there’s quite a bit of downtime in between those wins. There is a single special feature that helps spice things up from the regular spin and wait cycle, and we can’t help but feel that maybe one more on top of that would have done the trick.

Betting Options and Payout

You can play Eagle Shadow Fist for as little as $0.01 up to $25. The slot offers players the ability to turn paylines on and off, which is something you see less and less as the years have passed. It has its advantages, especially if you don’t have a lot of cash to play with. However, lowering the amount of paylines also drops your chances of winning, so there are obvious upsides and downsides to making that choice. Beyond that, the progressive jackpot is the obvious prize to gun for, but the odds of winning it are obviously low. The wins you can score from the free spins are more than worth it, but they’re rare, so there is a lot of patience needed to grind towards that win.

Symbols and Extra Features

While we can’t say we’re big fans of the letters and numbers, but we do like how the movie characters are drawn in a stylized fashion. The visuals are great, but we do feel like some more animations could have made it a lot better. Getting three or more Scatters gives players 20 free spins. In addition to this, the feature also rewards a multiplier, depending on how many Scatters trigger it. Three Scatters will give a 2x multiplier, four will reward a 3x multiplier and five will grant you a 4x multiplier. It’s also possible to retrigger it.

Our Verdict

We generally enjoyed our time with Eagle Shadow Fist. The progressive jackpot is sadly out of our reach, but we can still keep dreaming. The feature is a bit difficult to hit, but when it does, it’s usually rather rewarding thanks to the added multipliers, and when the 2x from the Wild comes on top of that, it can be awesome.
