Jin Ji Bao Xi
Jin Ji Bao Xi
Enter the world of the Jin Ji Bao Xi slot (Endless Treasure) which is a glossy journey into Chinese gaming traditions. I have just come off the Twin Happiness slot myself, so I was happy to dip a toe in. This slot is a perfect way of getting yourself into a high-stakes game in Macau!
This game’s exotic title is an expression of good luck and wealth, which sounds just right to this wombat. Let’s try and luck-in, big time, I’m for whatever it takes.
If you love the taste of the Far East then Scientific Game’s Asian-style foray will ring your bell. This game is very close in design and feel to the 88 Fortunes slot, another game from the master slot designer.
The Jing Ji Boa Xi Endless Treasures slot (that’s a mouthful for a wombat with all of my teeth, I can tell you) is an oriental stunner with 4 juicy jackpots and a Fu bonus feature. And, as if this colourful and expensive exterior wasn’t enough, there is a 15,499x your wager wins on offer too. Let’s get spinning my friends!
Look and Feel
The Jin Ji Bao Xi Endless Treasure slot lays on the opulence and glamour of gaming of Asia’s big casinos. I have been to Macau a couple of times, and let me tell you some of the casinos there make the Las Vegas strip look like a craps shoot on a dusty day in Coober Pedy, north of Adelaide.
There’s a combination of traditional Chinese icons, with lucky red, gold and purple, for a total immersive casino feel.
Sitting above the reels is an enticing pot of goodies that boost your bonus play. And there’s some perky upbeat Chinese music to keep those reels spinning and your energy levels up. Although I did find myself drooling at the thought of some steaming hot dim sum being served out in a swanky Chinese restaurant – I guess that’s just sound association for you, Pavlov’s Dog, that’s me.
Of course, some of you fellas and ladies might have had a whirl on this Asian slot sensation in a land-based casino before this catchy game became available online. That’s because Scientific Games are one of the largest games suppliers to land based casinos.
This swanky Chinese-themed game will have you spinning for wins over 3 rows, 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Compared to games like the Aurora Wilds slot with its 10 pay-lines, that seems like a big number, but don’t worry- this kind of ways to win mechanic is very easy to play. If you really want to go bat crazy, you could always try the Voodoo Gold slot from ELK. That goes all the way up to 4096 Ways to Win. Eek!
Your wins are generated by landing matching icons on adjacent reels.
To kick off the gaming action choose how many credits you wish to add to the game. And why is this important?
Well, the decision you make dictates the access you have to golden versions of the top value icons at play. This is the route to the bigger wins if your luck is in. Of course it entails more risk too, so watch yourself. Who can resist being surrounded by gold? You don’t have to be called King Midas for this to float your boat.
First of all, choose your credits. So choose 8, 18, 38, 68 or 88 credits per spin (the Chinese love a number eight) and get your hands on 1, 2, 3, 4 or a maximum of 5 golden symbols which are more valuable than the standard icons.
At the lofty top of the pay-table is a virtual zoo of Chinese animals. Keep your wits about you and try and spot a fish, a turtle, and some tigers. And look out for the even more exotic mythical beasts: the phoenix and dragon. There’s a space in Chinese legends for a mythical wombat if you ask me. I can do Kung Fu – you should see my “Blue Steel” pose. Devastating, and not just for the lady wombats.
Each animal is worth the same amount of 20x your wager for 5 on an active pay-line.
Now pay attention, you lot: for a small fee you can upgrade your animals for golden versions (spot the metre on the left of the reels where the number of these fancy creatures are recorded). These goldies are worth a tidy sum and can help you to get into some of the bonus action too.
The standard, Ace through 9 of the card deck are the lower value icons.
This game’s lucky golden bat Wild only appears in the base game and lands on the middle 3 reels. Likewise, the Bonus icon, a red and gold Chinese letter, only shows up in the base game.
Watch out too for a yellow and a green coin. These have a role to play in boosting your wins.
The yellow coin will only make an appearance in the Top Up feature and the Free Games mode. During the free spins game, this yellow coin only lands on the middle 3 reels.
The green coin and the handy +1 symbol are only active during the Top Up feature. Are you getting all of this? Did we mention that this game has a tone of features!
Land the Wild on the middle reel in the base game and this icon becomes effectively a golden Wild. When this happens it upgrades the pay-outs for standard animal symbols to make them pay at golden rates. You’ll need to press that spin button with your Gooooold fingerrrrr!
Better still, if this golden Wild is part of a winning pay-line, it doubles the value of that win. That’s one busy Wild!
Base Game Fu Bonus
Land the Bonus icon in the base game and you will discover that the game could randomly award you a Fu Value. I know FU is a bit rude in English, but Fu is a good luck symbol in Chinese.
Depending on the number of golden icons at play, your pay-outs can be a whacking great 11x your wager. And the fun’s not over there. All the bonus Fu value you earn is collected for the Free Games Feature later on. This is one of those games that just keeps giving.
A Feast of Bonus Extras
Simply land 6 or more Bonus icons in a single spin and you’ll get 6 free spins. You should grab the chance to add to your collection of golden creatures. During the spins, the low-value icons and the special yellow coin are at play. Any wins made during these spins are combined with the Fu values in the magic pot to give you a whopping great chunk of cash.
Top Up Feature
Take the Top Up Feature option during the Free Spins game and boost your winnings. Here the Bonus symbols that triggered the feature stick around (with their Fu value) while you get a re-spin. This time the +1 icon, and the yellow and green coins are at play.
Land the yellow coin and get a cash pay-out that reflects the triggering combo complete with Fu values. Or, even better, land the green coin and you’ll receive a nice big pay-out of your total pot so far, including any bonus icons and the yellow coin amounts too.
Hit the Jackpot
This slot has a quartet of progressive jackpots, so the more you wager, the bigger the jackpot on offer.
There are Mini, Minor, Major and Grand prizes up for grabs. That great juicy Grand jackpot can be triggered by filling your screen in the Top Up Feature with bonus icons and the special green and yellow coins.
Jin Ji Bao Xi Feature – the Jackpot!
If you’re a lucky so and so you can randomly trigger this jackpot feature. Otherwise, you will need to get the reels full of bonus and coin icons. Now take part in a picking game to match 3 icons.
While it’s hard to miss the growing number of slots in the Asian genre, this popularity of games is growing thanks to slick titles like Jin Ji Bao Xi slot. This really does take slot gaming up a level. There are more bonuses and features on this game than you can shake a didgeridoo at.
This slot might sound complex but it’s highly entertaining and gives you the chance of 2304 times your wager win (the Grand Jackpot). Once you dive in and start playing, you’ll soon get the hang of it. Keep your bets low to begin with to learn the play.
This is a slot that will have you planning a big trip to Macau and the Cotai Strip.
Wombat Score: 5 out 5
A game that’s slick, clever and gave me a great gaming appetite.
