Jade Magician Slot Logo

VideoSlots Casino has added the brand new oriental themed slot from Play’n GO titled Jade Magician to their casino, live and playable for real and play money.

Jade Magician uses a regular 5×3 reel layout and 15 paylines which unusually pay from left to right in any position, with payline wins being possible on any of the first three reels, along with this feature there is special 2x wild multiplier symbol present on reel 3, a special “second chance” feature that triggers with just 2 scatter symbols, and of course a main free spins bonus round.

The paytable has some unusually high paying premium symbols with the total coin wins really increasing massively for the 5 of a kind wins (highest paying symbols awards 2500 coins), this could also be multiplied by 2x too.

The main focus of the game is triggering the main free spins bonus round, this can be done directly by landing scatters symbols on reels 1,3,5 or from picking an extra scatter symbol in the second chance feature, thankfully all of this is explained clearly in the promotional video below.

Overall Thoughts

The Jade Magician slot is a reasonable medium variance slot release from Play’n Go and whilst it doesn’t offer too much in the way of innovation, instead we have a combination of some very popular features from previous Play’n GO slots all mixed together and housed into an oriental themed slot.

The positive features are the slightly higher than normal volatility rating (6/10), along with the very high paying 5 of a kind premium symbols (Golden Dragon), and the free spins round which adds plenty of excitement with the extra bonus spins, extra wilds, wild multipliers, and bonus re-trigger potential.

Overall a decent release with potential, but lacking in innovative features to make us rush to play it.
