The appetite for Asian themed slots shows no sign of slowing with betdigital/NextGen Gaming another provider to throw their hat into the virtual ring in the form of Goddess of Asia. It’s a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot that comes with traditional sound and visuals and some interesting extras. Look out for wilds that double payouts, fans that award multipliers and stacked wilds and a free spins round with even more multipliers. Play on your desktop, tablet or smartphone from between 30p and £30 per spin.
betdigital has created an impressive looking game here. Set against a backdrop of sunlit seas, mountains and blossom trees, the reels contain dragon-clad royal values plus gold cats, gold bars, dragon masks and money envelopes. The envelopes are the best paying symbol, awarding 5 times your bet if you land 5 on a line.
Helping to create those winning combinations is the Goddess who is the wild. She offers awards of 6.66 your bet per payline as well as substituting for everything bar the fan and scatter symbols. If the Goddess wilds forms part of a winning combination with a standard symbol, the payout is doubled.
The fan symbol delivers some extra goodies too. When it hits on reel 2 it awards a multiplier prize. Land it on reel 3 and you’ll be awarded a respin. A stacked wild is guaranteed on that respin.
Land 3 of the gold ingot scatter on the same spin to trigger the Free Spin Bonus feature. After receiving a payout equal to 2 times your total bet, you’ll then be taken to a new screen and shown 9 envelopes. Pick 3 of them. This reveals how many free spins you’ll receive – there’s up to 15 to be won. Look out for the fan during the feature – every time 1 lands, it is collected. At the end of the feature, your total win is multiplied by the number of fans collected.
We found plenty to like in Goddess of Asia. The visuals are nicely crafted and the traditional soundtrack is a good match. The gameplay matches the high spec design too, delivering plenty of variety and the potential for some very decent action.
If you’re a fan of this theme then Goddess of Asia is certainly worth adding to your rotation.
