Eastern Emeralds is a flagship slot from Swedish giant Quickspin and one of a growing number of Asian-themed games from this developer, with innovative layouts in its portfolio. It’s a 20-payline, three-row, five-reeler transporting you to the heart of the Far East. Determine your own destiny and reap rewards from ancient Chinese gods!
Visually tranquil and with a simple yet stunning design and excellent sound quality, the key selling points of this medium-variance game are its multiplier Wilds in the base game. Together with the free spins feature, presenting four options to choose from, these can combine to enable you to win a 1,680x multiplier, one of the industry’s highest. Make no mistake, this one’s a feature-packed treat!
How to play
Play Eastern Emeralds across all devices, mobile and PC, from 20p to £100 a spin. You’ll love the backdrop of a breathtaking Asian mountain range. The design is also dominated by the colour red, a shade, of vital importance to many Asian cultures.
What’s more, it’s a straightforward game that isn’t too complicated to understand or play.
Among the symbols on the reels are oriental A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards, alongside others including various oriental themes, such as coins, turtles, koi fish, golden ingots plus the most rewarding symbol of all, the dragon. This has the same value as the Wild, and provides a return of 7.5 when you land five across a payline.
Decrease or increase your bets using the Total Bet arrows, and stick on Autoplay to spin the reels automatically.
Choose your bet, and then get the reels moving by hitting the Spin button.
Eastern Emeralds Special features
Destiny Bonus and Multiplier Wilds
Destiny Bonus free spins
Eastern Emeralds is all about this feature! Trigger Destiny Bonus free spins when you land three Scatter symbols (the phoenix rising from the flames to swoop down on to the reels) anywhere on reels 2 to 4 at the same time. You then have four choices, ranging in risk from high to low, and with between six and 15 free spins. The more spins you choose, the lesser the Multiplier will be, and vice versa.
In other words, the options with fewer free spins have more risk, but greater potential for a bigger win.
Multiplier Wild symbols
These can land on any reel, and, once landed, will substitute for all others to create a win line – apart from the Scatter. The highest of these is x5, the lowest 1x. Together with the higher-paying symbols, they can cause your winnings to pile up.
Land at least two multiplier Wilds on an active winning payline for them to multiply. This can lead to a 120x multiplier on every base game spin.
Multiplied bets can, at their highest, yields wins of up to 1680x your original stake, a figure previously unheard of in the industry.
Return to Player (RTP)
As with all Quickspin offerings, this is eminently acceptable, at 96.58% with medium-to-low volatility. Of this, 67.94% is in the main game, 28.64% allocated to the free spins.
Eastern Emeralds is a fun, vibrant affair that’s a lot more than just a pretty face. There’s strong potential for some serious winnings and for having fun while being transported to another world. Some reviewers feel having another bonus feature could perhaps liven things up still further, but we reckon there should be plenty here to keep you interested and coming back for more.
