Jin Chans Pond of Riches Slot is said to be a sign of future wealth, so seek enlightenment in this new Asian Themed Slot from Thunderkick and see if the Pond of Riches envisions wealth for you.
This new one from Thunderkick comes in rather controversially with a dismal 94.27% RTP, which is low as far as a non-Jackpot game is concerned. Maybe we misunderstood and Jin Chan’s Pond is talking about itself when it says it envisages signs of future wealth?
Odd statistics aside, we’re going in with an open mind for a game by a Casino Software Provider that has brought so much quality in the past.
Thunderkick are the minds behind the brilliant Day of the Dead themed Esqueleto Explosivo, as well as the terrifying and captivating Beat the Beast Krakens Lair, each with significant potential.
Jin Chans Pond of Riches Slot is certainly in the right hands, so there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be a great game in its own right.
The graphics are stunning for the game, it looks like a lot of work went into it to give it some real depth with rich visuals and meticulous attention to detail.
The music is a tranquil kind of tune often seen and expected from games with this theme, and it really gives the game that calming vibe. You’ll notice various animals on each side of the reel upon a Pagoda like structure.
Asian themes is something that seems to be a hit among many games, and it’s a no-brainer why, considering the beauty and wonder integral within the cultures the games are themed upon. If you like Asian themed games you’ll be pleased with the aesthetics.
As far as betting options go, Thunderkick have you covered. Betting starts from as little as £0.10 for those who prefer to play it a little safer, with bets as high as £100 for those who believe well and truly in the pond’s epiphany of imminent wealth.
There’s plenty of options in between too, plenty enough for any player to find the stake right for them. The top symbol in Jin Chans Pond of Riches Slot is the Frog symbol, 5 of these in a line will pay 50x your current bet.
Various other animals make up the composition of high paying symbols, these are represented by a Heron, a Koi Fish and Turtle. There’s also a Wild symbol which substitutes for any other paying symbols.
Jin Chans Pond of Riches Slot uses a traditional pay line mechanic, of which there are 15. Landing 3 matching symbols from left to right starting from the left-most reel will form a win.
Maybe it’s fitting that a traditional looking Japanese game would use a more traditional pay line mechanic, and it’ll definitely attract more of the Slot Purists or old school players that prefer this classic style to the new and bizarre mechanics available nowadays.
Jin Chan’s pond of riches Slot has an interesting feature that could result in some massive hits in the form of the Wilds. Wild symbols will have a multiplier based on the reel it landed on, e.g. reel 2 Wild will always have a 2x multiplier and reel 3 will always have a 3x multiplier.
The interesting thing about this is they multiply with each other if connected on the same pay line. You can do the maths but for context a full line of wilds will be 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 resulting in a huge 120x.
Maybe a full line of Wilds is very few and far between, but it’s possible, and using the same formula you could still end up with 2x, 6x and 24x multipliers.
3 or more Scatter symbols trigger the bonus game. The amount of Free Spins awarded will entirely depend on the amount of Scatter Symbols you land.
In the Bonus game Scatter symbols will be collected, and each will grant 1 extra spin. For every 3 collected, a free Wild symbol is randomly placed on the reels at the start of each Free spin up to a maximum of 3.
In the bonus, any win will trigger the Sticky Respin feature. Any winning symbols in a win line will be locked and the remaining non-winning symbols will respin. These respins will continue until no additional winning symbols land.
Jin Chans Pond of riches Slot has a great design, which seems to be something we consistently see when it comes to games made by Thunderkick.
The Asian theme has been done beautifully, and is a safe bet considering that this type of theme is consistently popular among players everywhere.
The features of the game are great. Even in the base game you can get excited about the Wilds and their corresponding multiplier, which has the potential to hit that huge 120x.
The only questionable thing about the game is the RTP, which is strangely low for a game without a Jackpot feature. This aside, Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches is a decent game.
