2By2 Gaming presents the exotic Chinese themed slot game Mandarin Fortune where your ultimate goal is to spin five Mandarin Fortune symbols on a payline to be rewarded with 750 coins per given payline! With 5 reels and 1 to 20 variable paylines you may find that the silk road to China is not so far out of reach!
Symbols and sounds which let you taste the Orient
There is no doubt that the developer put effort into providing a complete gaming experience when it comes to the choice of graphics, sound effects and music. All compliment each other, starting from the lower level poker symbols carved from different coloured stones and etched with writing. The symbols that follow are representative of the Chinese culture and include a tea-pot, dynasty vase and woman dressed in traditional Chinese attire to name but a few. The sound effects during base game spins are standard but take on a thematic dimension during wins as does the music.
Yin-Yang wild symbol
Negative and positive forces combine to bring you the Yin-Yang wild symbol. This symbol can appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel and replace all symbols with the exception of the bonus gate scatter symbol. During the free spins bonus feature they will also act as multipliers to boost your winnings.
Gate scatter symbol is your entry way to free spins
The gate bonus scatter symbol may appear on any reel, with 3, 4 or 5 triggering 8, 12 or 16 free spins. If 3, 4 or 5 scatters appear then you are rewarded with a corresponding 1, 10 or 50 coins regardless of their positions on the reels. When the free spins bonus feature is triggered, the lower paying poker symbols are removed to increase your odds of higher prizes. To further enhance your odds, one Yin-Yang wild symbol can act as a 2x to 3x multiplier should it appear. The appearance of two Yin-Yang wild symbols can act anywhere between a 4x to 9x multiplier with three Yin-Yang symbols acting as a multiplier anywhere from 8x to 27x. Also remember that it is possible to re-trigger the feature while it is actively running for additional free spins.
Great Chinese theme with a low variance
Mandarin Fortune can be played with bets ranging from as little as €0.01 to as much as €10 with bets per payline ranging from €0.01 to €0.50. The developer states the theoretical return to player (RTP) at 95.0544%. The variance for this slot is closer to the low end as you are more likely to win smaller amounts with an outside chance of winning substantially more. To increase your odds of winning I suggest you play all 20 lines. With great graphics, a superb theme and a good level of features and prizes you may want to give this slot a try.
