This Eastern Emeralds mobile slot promises you a 1,680 multiplier during the free spins; but does it deliver?
The short answer is yes and no. Yes, you can get a 1,680 times wild multiplier on a win, but no you won’t get it often.
The good news is that it doesn’t matter; that this slots equivalent of hitting the grand jackpot prize and walking away with 16,000 times your bet. It’s not going to happen to many people often.
But you know what might happen? Maybe 1,000 times your bet. Or over 100 times your bet. Because this Quickspin studios slot has more multipliers than it knows what to do with.
We couldn’t decide on the rating for this Eastern Emeralds slot review because we figured it would be very divisive.
Which is strange because if you look at the features and slot theme, this is kinda old-fashioned. You have wilds with multipliers in the base game.
You have 3 scatters that lets you pick from 4 free spin options, and therefore, the volatility of your bonus rounds. All slot features we’ve seen many times before.
And whilst the Oriental slot theme is incredibly well done, again, it doesn’t break any rules.
This has golden symbols in the form of dragons, carp and turtles, with lucky coins and Ace to 10 symbols. The fiery Phoenix is beautiful, and the backgrounds are well done, but this could be anywhere in ‘Asia’.
The controversial part of this Eastern Emeralds video slot is the fact that it is ridiculously high variance, as you’d expect from a game with such a big payout.
Meaning the free spins can take well over 150 spins to trigger, and when they do, depending on which you choose, you can walk away with about 3x your bet. Maybe less.
But you get to choose your own destiny as you can, if you like, pick to play 150 free spins with multipliers that can total up to 120x on a win – and that would still be a grand win, just not as grand as the one in the 6 free spins with that possible 1,680x multiplier.
Not an easy casino slot to love, and very frustrating at times, but lovers of simple 5 reel slots with bonus games will appreciate a hard-hitting game that focuses on the reels and the wins – much like in the Isis game or Avalon of old.

Wilds and Multipliers: The Emerald is the wild symbol and will replace any other symbol on one of the 20 paylines to create a win.
But it also comes with multipliers. Reel 1 has no multiplier, reel 2 has a 2x multiplier, reel 3 a 3x multiplier, reel 4 a 4x multiplier and reel 5 a 5x multiplier on the wilds.
These multiply each other if they are all part of payline and also happens to have the same payout as the highest symbol on the paytable.
Free Spins Destiny Bonus: 3 Phoenix scatter bonus on reels 2, 3 and 4 will trigger the destiny bonus.
You will then have to choose from 4 options:
Notice how we put down 'lower' risk? That's because even the option that just reflects the base game is still pretty risky.
That said, you don't play a volatile machine like Eastern Emeralds and choose the lower risk option. Might as well at least try and go for the slightly bigger multipliers - at least, that's what we do.
We were tempted to give this Quickspin Eastern Emeralds machine an extra star for having the balls to give out a potential 16,000 times your bet win.
The problem is that the pace of this slot is a little slow, which will leave many players feeling a little cold, especially if you are used to playing on bonus heavy games like The Mask by NextGen or even the Anchorman film slot by Bally.
Still, personally, we found this mobile casino game very satisfying and frustrating all at the same time.
It's got some zen like spins that makes spinning on this slot a delight, especially with a 120x possible multiplier in the base game alone.
Not for the faint of heart, as this Asian tale rarely has a happen ending, but sometimes a little hope is all you need to find your happy ever after.
