The wombat says: Excellent! Another slot inspired by the Orient from those savvy slot makers Microgaming- the people behind the Cosmic Cat slot machine, Terminator 2 and Jurassic World. The Asian Beauties in question here are 4 lovely ladies from the Far East, all sporting opulent royal gowns in what looks like an emperor’s garden. Quite what any of that has to do with online slots we have no idea, but still, let’s spin the reels and see if they will land auspiciously!
Look and Feel
As you’d expect from the theme of Asian Beauty the design have a heavy oriental theme- a popular avenue for the designers with games like the Kathmandu slot and Winsumdimsum all floating around there in cyberspace. The graphics aren’t the best we’ve seen (particularly by today’s standards) but the slot was released in 2011, so it’s understandable.
Asian Beauty slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and uses Microgaming’s trademark 243-ways to win pay-out formula. This means that your usual pay-lines are dispensed with; and instead all you need to do to win is land matching symbols on adjacent reels.
Your low value symbols on the reels are made up of lotus flowers, cherry blossom, gold bowls and silver tea pots but it’s the Asian beauties themselves who are worth the most moolah. There are 4 of them; one wearing what looks like a sexy Santa outfit, one in a blue gown, one lit by a moonlight sky and finally the Asian Beauty with the pink flower in her hair. If you are looking for bronzed bodies then head to the Jason and the Golden Fleece slot as the Asian Beauties prefer the modest look to keep their skin fair!
The Asian Beauty logo is Wild symbol in this game, and it will substitute for all other symbols on the reels to help you scoop winning combos. Meanwhile there’s also an ornate jewelery box which acts as the Scatter symbol in the game, and this will set off the free spins.
Asian Beauty Free Spins
Land 3x or more of the Scatters anywhere at all on the reels and it’s x10, x15, or a whooping x25 Free Spins for you, depending on how many Scatters you landed in the first place. Oh, and one more thing; during the Free Spins bonus, any pay outs you scoop are doubled thanks to a x2 multiplier! Plus, you can re-trigger this lucrative bonus round by landing another 3x or more of the Scatter Jewelery Boxes!
This cheeky little pick ’em bonus feature is activated completely at random during the base game play. If you’re lucky enough to set it off, 12 mirrors will appear on a second screen with the 4 Asian Beauties hidden behind them. You must select the mirror you think conceals the Eastern goddess and match 3x of them. If you do land all 3x of the beauties, she will reveal a hidden multiplier value to you that can (apparently) win you up to a jackpot of 9,000 coins!
Asian Beauty is not one of this wombat’s fave Far-East themed slots, mainly because it feels a bit dated. That’s a personal viewpoint though! The randomly triggered bonus round can be pretty lucrative, and the traditional Chinese soundtrack is quite soothing. So if you fancy a trip to the Orient, or even just a stroll around an emperor’s garden, then this is the slot for you.
