Bally Technologies’ Blazing X Asia Video Slot Review

Blazing X Asia: Demo

Simple, Chinese-themed action is on the menu in Blazing X Asia. Created by Bally Technologies, it’s a 5 reel, 5 row, 40 payline video slot that comes with expanding wilds that fill the whole of the middle reel when they hit. These expanding wilds also deliver multipliers which can reach up to 25x. Trigger the feature and you’ll receive 10 free spins. Stakes here start at 24p, rising to a max of £180 per spin.

Chinese Design

Many Chinese-themed slots are dripping in bling. Blazing X Asia has a definite Sino flavour but it’s not over the top. Set against a deep red backdrop, the reels include Asian-style A to J letters as well as a fan, a money pouch and a butterfly. The gold coin is the most rewarding symbol, awarding 1.5 times your bet if you land 5 on a row. That’s not exactly a big number. There are chances to boost the awards thanks to the wild multipliers.

Up to 25x wild multipliers

The wild symbol can land on the middle reel only. When it does, it expands to turn the whole reel wild in the Blazing X Multiplier feature. It also activates a multiplier which will be in play for up to 3 spins. If another wild hits on the middle reel during those 3 spins, it too expands.

It also increases the value of the multiplier. The action starts a 1x then rises to 2x, 3x, 5x 10x and 25x. The meter to the right of the reels shows how many spins you’ll have left with the multiplier live.

10 free spins with multipliers

The golden dragon is the scatter. Land this on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature. First, a payout of double your total bet is made. If any multipliers are live, the payout is also boosted by that amount. You’ll then receive 10 free spins. Any multipliers from the triggering spin are carried over to the free spins. Multipliers don’t reset during the free spins either. They do increase though, if the wilds fall on reel 3.

No frills Chinese play

Like many Bally slots, Blazing X Asia started life in live casinos. That simple design and gameplay is evident in this online conversion. There’s nothing overly flashy here. It’s all solid enough though. The multiplier wilds are the key to success here, especially during the free spins – you can win up to 1,500 times your bet on every spin or free spin.

If you like the Chinese theme, then Blazing X Asia is a game to consider – Bally also offers you 88 Fortunes Megaways which combines a classic land-based slot and the popular Megaways mechanic.
