The Jade Emperor theme
The Jade Emperor is an important figure in Chinese Taoist culture due to the belief that he represents the first God. The story goes that whilst serving as the Crown Prince, he devoted his time to helping the needy and ensuring that all in his kingdom were able to find peace. He became immortal and after millions of years was eventually chosen to take the title of the Jade Emperor, the ruler of all. He is also known by many other names which include Heavenly Grandfather, the Highest Emperor and Yu Huang Da Di.
As the slot is loading, players will see an image of a man sitting atop a golden throne. Given the slots title, this confirms that the stern and regal looking figure is the Jade Emperor. He features throughout the slot, looking to gift fortune and favour to those who spin the reels.
How Jade Emperor looks
Everything in this slot relates to the Chinese theme, with the symbols, font and background all giving players a taste of Chinese culture. It is a beautiful slot which is predominately green and gold, mirroring the colours that the Jade Emperor wears.
The outer edges of the reels look like a traditional Chinese building, which includes another major cultural aspect; golden dragons. They sit at each of the top corners, and also in the centre, showcasing the slot title which includes Chinese lettering and the Jade Emperor translation Yu Huang Da Di. Behind the reels you will see a dark, starry sky, possibly symbolising the Emperor's immortality and ascension to Ruler of Heaven.
The other symbols that you will see are also made up of vivid colours, both on the reels and on the 20 payline numbers which sit on the edge. Each box, be it those containing the symbols or the betting options, are all bordered by a beautiful golden edge. All writing is also golden in colour, which not only relates to the Emperor, it also gives players an idea of the riches available that this slot can offer. It is bright and interesting to look at which instantly gives this slot the advantage.
At the bottom of the reels you will find all of your betting options, ranging from the number of paylines and your line bet, to the autoplay and turbo options that you may wish to use. In the middle of these options are two scrolls which state your total bet and any winnings that you may have received on your most recent spin. There’s quite a lot of information at the bottom of the screen, and due to the borders and different colours used, it makes it easy to differentiate what each of them mean.
It is worth noting that rather than the standard playing card symbols that are often found on many slots, this slot instead uses mythical Chinese animal symbols as the lowest payers. Details such as this show that a lot of attention has been given to the theme and the small details that make it a much more convincing, and entertaining slot to play.
How to play Jade Emperor
With all of the playing options sitting at the bottom of the reels, it is quite clear where you need to start. Whilst the purple Spin button shimmers to the right of the other options, you should first take a look at how you can personalise this slot to suit your style of gameplay.
On the left, you will see the option for the paylines. This can be adjusted so that between 1 and 20 paylines can be played at any one time. Next to it, you can choose your line bet which ranges from 0.01 to 25.00. Depending on whether you like to make your credits last, or you prefer to go all in, this means that you can bet a total of between 0.01 and 500.00, quite a big margin for players of all betting preferences. You can also use the green Bet Max button to automatically set your stake at the highest possible level without having to click multiple times to reach it.
There are two other options which can serve as an added bonus to the way some people play. The autoplay option allows you to set a predetermined number of spins, ranging from 10 - 99, whilst Turbo Mode will make the reels spin in double quick time. You don’t have to use any of these options, but it is a great way of mixing it up and seeing if you like the slot whilst on a time limit.
The only other option left on the bottom bar is the Info button. This will take you to the rules and paylines where you can find out more about the importance of each symbol, including how you can trigger the bonus.
The Jade Emperor paytable
Once you click onto the Info option, you will automatically be taken to a key which tells you more about the potential winnings each symbol could bring you. As mentioned earlier, the animal symbols are the lowest paying on the reels, each offering just a little bit more than the others. The blue symbols pays 8 for 3 matching symbols, 20 for 4 and 50 for 5. The red pays 8, 25 and 75 for 3, 4 and 5 of a kind, whilst the white pays out 10, 30 and 100 for the same amounts. The green symbol is the last of the low payers with 10, 40 and 150 being given when you land 3, 4 and 5 of them on the reels.
The next level of symbols are all figures from Chinese mythology. The laughing man pays out 2, 15, 50 and 200 when you find 2, 3, 4 and 5 of them, whilst the warrior pays 2, 20, 75 and 300 for the same number of matching symbols. The woman offers 3, 25, 100 and 400 for 2, 3, 4 and 5 of a kind, whilst the Jade Emperor himself will award you with 3, 30, 150 and 600 when you land 2, 3, 4 and 5 of him on the reels.
The jade Chinese lettering which translates to Jade Emperor is the wild and will also pay out in addition to being a special symbol. Land 2 of them and you will be given 10, 3 gives you 200, 4 pays 2,000 and 5 pays out a whopping 10,000.
Features of Jade Emperor
The wild symbol also acts as a substitute for all other symbols on the reels, minus the scatter and bonus, which gives players a bigger and better chance at landing a winning combination.
The scatter symbol, which is represented by a golden dragon, is the ticket to a decent multiplier. Three matching symbols will multiply your winnings by 5, 4 of them will multiply by 25 and if you land 5 golden dragons, your winnings will be multiplied by 100.
There is one final symbol on the reels which is the red lantern bonus symbol. You must land the lantern on reels 1 and 5 to trigger the Emperor’s Treasure bonus feature. You are taken above the clouds where the Emperor sits on a golden throne. Above him are six lanterns, whilst sitting on the clouds at his feet are six treasure chests. You must first choose one of the lanterns to determine how many free spins they have won, before going on to choose a chest which awards you with a win multiplier to use on your free spins. You can win up to 16 free spins with a 6x multiplier if you choose carefully.
Even better, if you find another bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5 during your free spins, you will trigger even more free spins which will fall under your chosen multiplier. This can be retriggered multiple times, with no limit on how many free spins can be won.
