If there’s a provider that has the Asian themed slot nailed down it’s Red Tiger. We’ve had Imperial Palace, Dragons Luck, Magic Gate, Lion Dance and now, Clash of the Beasts Slot.
It’s no wonder that Red Tiger choose this theme time and time again for their New Slots, they just bring in such an audience with their captivating, mystical, wonderous and aesthetically pleasing visuals.
Dubbed by Red Tiger themselves as the titanic battle between beasts, we’ll see Dragon and Tiger go head to head in an epic battle.
Red Tiger have delved deep into Chinese mythology for this one, drawing inspiration from Taoism, where Yin and Yang can often be expressed alternatively by the two forces of the Tiger and the Dragon.
It’s said that the two powerful creatures are mortal enemies, yet linked together by destiny intricately by destiny bring perfect balance, but what kind of balance will Clash of the Beasts Slot bring you?
As you already know the Tiger and the Dragon are our figureheads for the game, both of the animals have gorgeous illustrations, and sit dominantly either side of the reels.
Everything else is also nice visually, with the authentic looking Chinese design of the border around the reels and subtle Chinese structures around the beasts and in the background.
You can see that no expense was spared when it came to the design of the game, and even the music has a traditional oriental feel to it.
Red Tiger games regularly shine in this aspect, delivering quality games built on an engine renowned for performance, compatibility and quality and speed.
Betting and Symbols
A wide array of betting options is available in Clash of the Beasts, giving everyone a chance to play the game. The lowest bet available to choose is a mere £0.10 per spin, and the highest available stake is £60.
There’s plenty of options in between for those who prefer something in between the two boundaries. The top symbol in Clash of the Beasts is the Wild Yin Yang/Tiger Dragon Wild symbol, which you’ll only see in Free Spins, with various other symbols of Chinese origin coming in as other premium symbols.
A, K, Q, J & 10 make up the low paying symbols. A little Easter egg if you like, is the fact that a lot of the pays for the game in the pay table seem to include the number 8 a lot.
This is because the number 8 is long since regarded as the luckiest number in Chinese culture. Hopefully this sign of prosperity and success shines through for you when you try it out.
The Base Game
Clash of the Beasts slot is a 6 reel game that uses paylines as its mechanic to calculate wins. There are 40 of said paylines, and all of them are active at all times regardless of stake.
Wins are paid from left to right, and 3 or more matching symbols along any of these payline patterns will form a win.
There isn’t loads going on in the Base Game unfortunately, all of the features within the game are actually variations of Free Spins, of which there are 3. Your best hope for the Base game, and it goes without saying, is to land a nice number of these premium symbols in a pay line.
Tiger Spins is awarded if 2 or more Tiger symbols land on reels 1, 2 and 3. 2 symbols will award 10 Dragon Spins, and 3 will award 15 Free Spins.
During Tiger Spins, the tiger may swap symbols for guaranteed wins.
Dragon Spins will trigger when two or more Dragon Symbols land. Dragon Symbols may appear on reels 1, 2 and 3. 2 symbols will award 10 Dragon Spins, and 3 will award 15 spins.
During this game, the Dragon may appear to nudge the reels and rows for bigger wins.
The best of the bunch is Clash Spins, this will trigger when both the Tiger and Dragon symbols land on a single spin. 2 will award 10 Clash Spins, and each addition symbol will add 5 bonus spins up to a maximum of 30 Free Spins.
In this mode both the features from Tiger Spins and Dragon spins may trigger including Random Wilds, which is unique to this feature.
If the Tiger and the Dragon appear together, a random number of Wilds are added to the reels creating a guaranteed win.
For all the praises that can be sung about the design of the game, and the meticulous level of detail Red Tiger went into to make a game with in depth Chinese Lore…not a lot can be said about the game in general.
The Base Game doesn’t have any features at all, so you’ll just be spinning away in hope of one of the features making an appearance. Thankfully, and rather uncharacteristically for a Red Tiger slot, these Bonus don’t take forever to land, with the exception of the Clash Spins.
For two animals’ representative of ‘perfect harmony’, Dragon Spins seems to be a lot less frequent than the Tiger Spins, which is probably explained by the fact that the Dragon Spins seems to have more potential, but still.
Clash Spins can be very infrequent, and when all is said and done, and you look at the maximum potential, it seems relatively low. 1,286x is the maximum win stated by Red Tiger, and it just seems a little small.
Clash Of The Beasts Slot is available to play on most Online Casinos now
Overall, the aesthetics really draw you in, but once you take off the rose-tinted glasses and really look at the game, it becomes something that is mediocre at best.
