Peking Luck Slots

Ever since China opened its doors to foreign companies, we have seen a rush to capture this new, developed market. And if there is one industry that is doing their best to woo the eastern giant, it is the slots industry. Chinese-themed games have become very common, and they continue to remain popular, despite how much time has passed. As such, we were not surprised to see Pragmatic Play following the trend and setting their latest release in China. With a 5x3 playing field and 25 fixed paylines, it offers players Wilds with multipliers and free spins with multipliers and an awesome retrigger potential.

How to Play

The graphics have the standard polish we are used to from Pragmatic Play games and embraces the ancient Chinese look. You will find red and gold everywhere on the reels, while the sea below and the sky above are drawn in the traditional Chinese art style. We are sad to report there are not many interesting animations. Some icons, like the geisha and the drums, have a bit of effort put into them, but most symbols just do the standard zoom back and forth. Better than nothing, but nothing impressive, either. The title uses the standard Pragmatic Play user interface. Peking Luck is played on a standard 5x3 playing field, with pays being granted by connecting three or more identical symbols, from left to right, following the twenty-five fixed paylines. The slot has two special features. One is Wild, the other is a free spin round, and both come with multipliers to enhance any wins they are a part of.

Betting Options and Payout

You can wager between $0.25 up to $125 per spin, which is an awesome bet spread for casual gamblers and high rollers alike. The game has very high volatility, so you should expect a lot of dead and boring spins before you hit a massive jackpot that will blow your socks off. The maximum win is a mind-boggling 180,000x your total bet, and no, we did not accidentally add a zero! The RTP for this Pragmatic Play release is 96.50%, making it above average compared to other titles by the same developer.

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbols include playing card royals – 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as gold coins on a red string, a pink fan, red and gold drums, an eastern dragon, and a richly decorated mask. The woman with a fan is Wild and substitutes for all symbols except Scatters. A golden gong is Scatter and triggers free spins. When Wild is part of a winning combination, it applies a 2x multiplier to the win. Getting several Wilds does not grant several multipliers. Collect three or more golden gongs to activate the free spins bonus. Before the round starts, pick between six objects to determine how many free spins you will get, and then pick between six different objects for the multiplier that will be active during the special feature. You can get between 8 to 38 free spins, and between a 2x to an 18x multiplier. You can win ten additional free spins by collecting three or more Scatters while the special feature is already active. There are no limits as to how many times you can retrigger the bonus.

Our Verdict

While it could use a bit more visual polish, everything else has been top notch. Pragmatic Play paves the way and shows the terrifying winning potential of high volatility slots. We must warn you, you will most likely go broke chasing that jackpot, but if you want to give it a try anyway, Peking Luck awaits the brave and the foolish.
