What is this mobile slot about?

With 1024 ways to win, this Jade Butterfly mobile slot brings a pretty bouquet of bonus features with a sweet Asian flavour.

The slot studio Pragmatic Play like to do fairly generic themes; the Panda Fortune game gave you butterflies, Koi fish, and Panda bears, whilst their Tripe Tiger classic slot was all about that wild mountain cat.

Here, they don’t break rank by doing anything too different. Jade Butterfly is a 5 reels 4-row slot machine with 1024 ways to win and pretty lotus flowers, of different colours, as the high paying symbols.

Ace to 9 fill in the rest, and the green Butterfly is the wild symbol that brings the whole theme together.

Which of the individual reels respins will you choose?

Reel re-spin features are a little controversial. When done well, like in Bikini Party slot machine by Microgaming, they can add to the fun of the theme.

When done not so well, like in Merkur’s Smart Restart slot, they are just a dangerous tool that will take more than give.

In the case of this Jade Butterfly online slot, it sits a little bit in the middle. The fact that there are 1024 ways to win help.

It’s easy to see what symbol you need to find on a re-spin – basically, any 3 or symbol adjacent to each from left to right will give you something.

A little dangerous and you have to know your paytable

The good news is that the price of re-spinning one reel is based on your current bet level and the potential to create a new winning combination.

So they more a reel re-spin is worth, the more potential it has to give a win.

But if we can give you any piece of advice is this: know the paytable and make sure the re-spin is worth taking. If that sounds like too much math and hard work then follow these 4 simple rules:

  1. It’s rarely worth re-spinning the same reel more than once
  2. Don’t respin to try and catch a scatter. It’s expensive and doesn’t usually work out.
  3. Aim to respin to catch wins with the high paying flower symbols for 4 or 5 of a kind wins.
  4. If you don’t know if you should re-spin; just don’t.

This Jade Butterfly slot is fun even without the re-spins

And that’s what makes this slot machine on mobile so playable. Even if you never use the re-spin, this is still a fun middle of the road Lotus flower slot game.

So you don’t have to use the re-spins often; just when the base game is going a little slow and you want to try and bulk up a good win.

Because this slot game has a little ace up its sleeve; the 13 free spin bonus round where all your wins are tripled and you get more wild symbols.

It’s a brilliant slot feature that on its own, even without the re-spins, would have given this phone slot the same star rating.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: The Butterfly made from Jade is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols to create a win, except for scatter.

During the base game it appears on reels 2 and 4 only, whilst during the free spins bonus round it can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.

Individual Reel Re-spin: After every base game spin, you can choose to spin any individual reel as many times as you like.

There is a cost to this, which is marked clearly at the bottom of the reel. The higher the cost, the higher the potential return, but also (generally) the higher the risk of not getting anything at all.

Scatters and Free Spins: The golden flower with the red ruby is the scatter bonus symbols and 3 or more trigger 15 free spins.

All wins during the free spins are multiplied by 3x and there's no limit to how many times you can re-trigger this feature.

You also get wilds on 3 reels, rather than just the two in the base game.


Closing thoughts

Despite the fact that they are not generally very imaginative with their themes, we actually really like Pragmatic Play slots on mobile and online.

Namely, because they create decent machine where you know exactly what you are going to get when you open it: they state the variance, the features, and the min/max bet in the opening page.

It means you can quickly see what you are going to get; and what you get with this Jade Butterfly video slot is a pretty oriental fare with wilds, scatters, free spins and multipliers.

And sure, there are the paid reel-respins that give you an illusion of control and can be fun if you plan on playing this casino slot more than once.

But otherwise, you can simply enjoy a few carefree spins on a well-balanced machine; much like you might find playing on 7 Monkeys slot or even Wild Spells by Pragmatic.
