The Asian theme never seems to be losing popularity. With that in mind, Scientific Games released Golden Asia, a slot game that for a change does not focus on China. The game has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 winning ways active on every spin. With the amazing and not often seen design and the unique features that make it complete, the game sounds quite promising.
This Asian inspired slot game takes us on a trip to India instead of China for a change. It is something refreshing to see even though it is not amongst the best looking ones out there. There is a lot more that the Indian culture offers that could have been incorporated into the game, but the overall appearance is pleasing. The providers offered therefor some amazing features to accompany the simple design.
In the background is the beautiful blue sky with some traditional houses underneath it. There are different palm trees and a palace in the middle. The Indian culture could have been better pictured, but there is something special about the simplicity of the design as well. The soundtrack consists of traditional music that is very energetic. It fits with the theme nicely and will definitely get you in the mood to play.
Appearance-wise the symbols steal the show for sure. They include the regular colorful royals as the lower-paying symbols. Then there are lotus flowers, gold coins, snakes, elephants, and a beautiful Indian lady, as the higher paying ones. The game's wild symbol comes in the form of a tiger and the game also features different bonus symbols that appear in the form of a river or two different pots of gold.
The payouts should impress most players since they go up to 2000 times the take in a single spin. The betting range is standard with the minimum bet set at 0,20 and the maximum at 100 coins per spin. This is a medium volatility game which will be liked by many players. It also has a 96,42% RTP which is around average and goes well in combination with the variance.
The features will impress all kinds of players out there. There are quite a few here and they are also very creative contributions to the playing experience. They definitely make up for the lack of creativity in the design of the game. Just like most games in the industry, this one has a wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols in the game, except the bonus symbols. It can appear on all reels besides the first one.
The bonus symbol that appears in the form of a river can land only on the 3 middle reels. By landing 3 of them the Wheel feature is triggered and the player gets to spin a wheel that will award some amazing cash prizes, multipliers, or even trigger the Action Spins feature.
The other two bonus symbols are gold or black pot and landing 6 of them anywhere on the reels will trigger the Selection feature where the player chooses between Free Spins or Action Spins.
If the player chooses the Action Spins another wheel is spun. This can award the player with 3 free spins or some amazing cash rewards of up to 2000 times the take with possible multipliers that range from x1 to x100.
If the player chooses the Free Spins, they will be awarded with an equal number of spins to the number of triggering symbols. The number of wild symbols appearing on the reels during the feature is noticeably increased which ensures some amazing payouts. The great thing is that pot and river symbols are still in play which means that the Wheel feature and Selection feature can be re-triggered.
