This game is no longer available at Wombat Casino. Sorry about that punters! Why not try 24K Dragon from Play’n GO instead?
The wombat says: This slot from Iron Dog Studios is inspired by an old Chinese legend. According to said legend, four divine animals are guarding the skies and these 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 game makers 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 your reels is set among traditional 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. We’d put it up there with the Lucha Legends slot in terms of design. Let’s just say it’s easy on the eye, my friends.
Si Xiang slot has five reels, three rows, and 28 pay lines. Bets start at 0.50 and go up to 50.00 per spin. That’s more than the Diamond Empire slot machine– but then again that’s a three-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 is 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 3x multiplier to any wins it contributes to).
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 third reel 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 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, one of the four 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 one 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 that move around the reels with each free spin.
This feathered friend delivers a cross-shaped wild that moves with each free spin.
It’s a volatile slot wombat fans, make no mistake – which means that the base gameplay 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!
