Peking Luck contains five reels and twenty-five paylines slot from Pragmatic Play based on a colourful Chinese festival.
Set against a backdrop of magic lanterns, rolling seas and blossom trees, the purple reels include lower-value royal values and a selection of icons traditionally associated with China. The symbols a cymbal, a fan, a drum and a dragon. The best of the standard icons is the carnival mask. Landing five of these on a payline and players will receive a payout equal to thirty times a bet stake.
The best rewarding symbol is the mystery woman with the fan who is the wild. Players who land three, four or five wilds on a payline and will pocket 20, 160 or 400 times their bet. Whenever a wild is part of a winning combination with a standard icon, the payout will be doubled.
The golden gong is the scatter symbol and obtaining three, four or five of these anywhere on the same turn and will boost a winning payout by either x3, x10 or x250 a bet staked plus activating the Free Spins round. Players will be offered a selection of six fans where they will need to reveal one to view how many free spins there are.
Then players will be shown six dragons - picking one will reveal the multiplier that will be applied to all wins during that free spin - anything between x2 and x18 the original bet. Furthermore, players can win ten more free spins each time they obtain three or more scatter symbols during a free spin – with no limits! Moreover, the wild can combine with the multipliers to offer even more winning chances.
Peking Luck is a very volatile game so players should expect some winless runs, with even the free spins at times not offering any payouts.
Peking Luck has excellent audio and visuals with simple gameplay with the occasional explosive action. The high volatility and risk won't be for everyone but will please more patient punters.
