Chunjie Slot Review
Chunjie is a slot game by software manufacturer Endorphina. Chunjie has a very common for slot machines theme of China with all the corresponding imagery. However, it’s not just any Chinese-themed slot game. ‘Chunjie’ literally means Spring Festival, so this is a game that centers on the celebration of the Chinese New Year. The graphics here are very pleasing, as is the overall design of the slot. You will notice the symbols include the lower value playing cards, which are uniquely styled to mimic Chinese hieroglyphs. They range from A to K, Q, J, 10 and 9. Following them are traditional depictions of mandarins, golden coins, firecrackers, golden koi fish and golden sycee. There’s also a very pleasant soundtrack to add to the authentic feel of the game.
As for the setup, it features 5 reels and 3 rows, with a total of 38 paylines. You can choose to play with less paylines – the available numbers are on either side of the reels. Stakes can range anywhere from 38p per spin up to £38 per spin and players can count on a RTP of 96%.
You will notice that this game features a Wild symbol, which can appear in any position on the reels. Furthermore, as any Wild should, it can replace any of the regular symbols to help create winning combos. What’s more, when part of a winning sequence, the Wild can multiply the payouts by 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 18x or 88x. The only symbol it cannot replace is the Scatter symbol.
The Scatter, in turn, comes in the shape of a colorful Chinese dragon. It is responsible for activating the freespins feature. In order to trigger it, you will need to land 3 or more Scatters anywhere on the reels. This will provide you with a choice of three different freespins features. The first option will offer you 20 freespins and any Wild that appears in a winning combo will provide a multiplier of either 5x or 18x. Alternatively, you can choose to receive 10 freespins, whereas the Wild can provide a multiplier of 8x or 38x. Finally, you can gain 3 freespins with a Wild offering a multiplier of either 18x or 88x! What’s more, you can also retrigger the feature by landing 3 or more Scatters again.
In addition, Chunjie also has a Risk feature. It’s basically a side game that will offer you to double your wins up to 10 times after each winning spin. If you decide to take advantage of the feature, you will need to beat the dealer’s card. You will have 5 cards, facedown, to choose from. If yours is higher, you will double your wins. In the event that it’s lower, you will lose your wins and the game will end.
Chunjie is a fairly entertaining slot game with high quality graphics and a pleasant take on an old theme. The freespins bonus feature with the opportunity of multiplying your wins is a pretty attractive one that can offer handsome payouts. We like the fact that you can pick what kind of volatility you like in the free spins bonus feature. If you like to play it safe we would recommend the 20 free spins, as you are almost guaranteed some kind of win. If you are aiming big you can pick the 3 free games option which is very volatile, meaning you can go several bonus features without a single win, but you can also win massive with the 88x multiplier.
