The wombat says: This slot from Iron Dog Studios is inspired by an old Chinese legend. According to said legend, there are four divine beasts guarding the skies and these beasts are the Azure Dragon, Vermillion Bird, White Tiger, and Wild Tortoise – all of whom make an appearance in this mythical slot.
But with so many gamesmakers releasing Far East-themed slots nowadays, standing out can be a tricky business. Like the Legend of the 5 Ninjas slot for instance, or even Win Sum Dim Sum (hmmmm, my tummy has started to rumble).
Can Si Xiang deliver the goods? Let’s find out.
Look and Feel
The action on you reels place amidst traditional some Chinese pagodas and traditional music sets this scene nicely. This wombat likes all the red lanterns! Did you know that the colour red is auspicious in China? Well now you do. Yes, with its colourful sharp graphics this slot looks very nice indeed. In fact we’d put it up there with the Lucha Legends slot in terms of design. Let’s just say its easy on the eye my friends.
Si Xiang slot has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 28 pay lines. Bets start at 50p and go up to £100 per spin. That’s more than the Diamond Empire slot machine– but then again that’s a 3 reeler.
Your reels are jampacked with hand-drawn Chinese characters spinning alongside frogs, some koi carp and a weird monkey-looking fella.
Look to the left of your reels and you’ll see a yin yang symbol hanging on a piece of wood. This the wild icon in this game and will substitute for all symbols on the reels to make up more winning combinations (plus it gives you a x3 multiplier to any wins to contributes too). It will only appear on reel 3 but it can also open a portal to your free spins along with the Scatter symbol.
And speaking of which the Scatter in Si Xiang slot is the Magic Portal icon. When it lands on the reel 3 along with the yin yang wild symbol you’ll set off the very cool Free Spins feature.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
It’s time to get ready for the free spins Wombat fans! And there could potentially be a whole ruddy great load of them. Iron Dog calls them ‘unlimited spins’ because they don’t actually put a number on them. Instead, your free spins will stop when the wilds stop moving on the reels.
Let us explain… Before the bonus starts, 1 of the 4 animals will be selected at random and each of the god-like guardians comes with special wild features:
This is a stacked wild that moves 1 position to the left or right with each free spin.
There the wild will expand horizontally rather than vertically, moving up and down the reels with each free spin.
This creature will treat you to a block of wilds which move around the reels with each free spin.
This feathered friend delivers a cross-shaped wild which moves with each free spin.
It’s a volatile slot wombat fans, make no mistake – which means that the base game play can sometimes be a bit on the slow side. But if you do manage to trigger that bonus you will receive some very very generous wins. A great-looking slot that manages to hold its own. Hats off to Iron Dog Studio!
