Slot tester's review: Trystan Michielsen

Slot tested

Chinese Treasures takes players to this beautiful country with its deep, rich culture and long history to find out if we are able to get our hands on some of these treasures!

The game was developed by Red Tiger and released in 2016, adding yet another Asia inspired slot to the growing list. Other examples include Double Dragons by Yggdrasil and Dragon’s Luck which was also released by Red Tiger itself. As much as I understand that China can be a rich source of inspiration, these slots do have a tendency to all blend together somewhat. There are only so many shades of red and gold, and only so many renditions of dragons and lions!

Chinese Treasures is made up of a 5-reel, 3-row playing field and uses 20 betlines. The graphics are sharp and look good, but the low- and high-paying symbols are presented in different styles. While the high-paying symbols look like photo-realistic images, the high cards that act like low-paying symbols are made to look like they were drawn with a paintbrush.

The music is nothing special unfortunately and is exactly what you’d expect from a slot set in the East. It sounds clear and has an impressive variation but it’s not creating anything new. Some of the sound effects are better, especially the dragon that sometimes shows up has an impressive size to it thanks to the rumbling roar you can hear. I also liked how the win jingles are in the correct style so they don’t take away from the mood.

Symbols

Chinese Treasures uses the familiar split in symbols between high and low paying. The high-paying symbols are different kinds of golden animal statues while the low-paying symbols look like painted swirls and shapes, based on cards. The choice takes away from the theme but they were at least made to fit the setting.

From highest to lowest the symbols are:

  • Free Spins: With 3 Free Spins symbols on the screen at the same time the Free Spins mode activates.
  • Wild: Wilds substitute all other symbols in the game except the Free Spins symbol. Max. 300 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • Dragon: Max. 200 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • Phoenix: Max. 160 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • Turtle: Max. 120 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • Lion: Max. 90 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • Fish: Max. 60 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • Ace: Max. 40 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • King: Max. 36 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • Queen: Max. 30 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • Jack: Max. 24 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • 10: Max. 16 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.
  • 9: Max. 10 coins with five-of-a-kind on a winning line.

Because of the large number of symbols, it is difficult to get a win which results in a High Volatility. There aren’t a lot of wins to be had while playing the base game and I found that even in the Free Spins mode it was rather difficult to get a win as well. Since Wilds have a 2x Multiplier this helps balance it somewhat but you shouldn’t expect regular wins while playing Chinese Treasures.

Features

The features in this slot are simple but change the core gameplay in different ways. The features are:

  • Wilds: Wilds substitute all other slots in the game except the Free Spins symbols.
  • Multiplier: All Wilds have a 2x Multiplier. Any time a Wild is part of a winning payline the multiplier is applied to the win.
  • Free Spins: Get 3 Free Spins symbols on the screen to activate the Free Spins mode. All wins during the Free Spins mode are doubled.
  • Stacked Wilds: Wilds can appear Stacked, filling an entire reel.

Both during the base game as well as during the Free Spins mode the gameplay stays very basic. The only real feature that we’re going to see is the Wilds, which have a few different changes made to them.

The first is that all Wilds are multiplied, coming with a 2x multiplier. They will grant this multiplier to any win they’re a part of. The second change is that Wilds can come Stacked, filling the entire reel. I say can because I have seen single tile Wilds appear as well.

This is the same both during the base game and the Free Spins mode. The only real difference between the two modes is that during the Free Spins mode all wins are doubled. If this means that there is a 4x multiplier when a Wild is involved is never made clear, but I imagine so.

The fact that the features all act the same during any part of the game means that activating the Free Spins mode isn’t going to give the player any special benefits, other than the free spins themselves. Due to the high volatility, I didn’t find the Free Spins mode to be especially useful in getting wins, often leaving me disappointed.

While I think players that enjoy classic slots might appreciate the small number of features and the limited impact they have on the game, I think it made it too difficult to get any sizeable wins and as a result, I felt like my funds were only shrinking and never growing.

In Conclusion

Chinese Treasures isn’t a bad slot but it is a very basic slot. The graphics are good but not groundbreaking, the music is fine but not original. Finally, the features don’t do much to liven up the gameplay, leaving a rather simple and forgettable experience.

Players can choose a bet between £0.10 and £60 per spin, which is a nice variety but I found it very unwise to bet any higher than £1 or £2 per spin. It’s up to each individual player to decide what they’re comfortable with. The max. win of 1,446x your bet feels paltry in comparison to the high volatility and doesn’t seem worth it.

I didn’t dislike my time playing Chinese Treasures but it also generated zero positive feelings towards this game either. There are slots in Red Tiger’s library that look better, play nicer and have more exciting features. Players that are looking for a classic experience with updated graphics might get more out of this though.
