This beautiful enchantress celebrates the mystical Far East, but will the Jade Magician slot bring you good fortune?
There’s something about this Jade Magician mobile slot theme that works better than the online game.
Why? Maybe it’s the simplicity of the design, with just the eyes of the Jade Magician peering at you from the top left of the reels.
Don’t get us wrong, this is a far more inventive theme than the usual red/purple reels of Asian slots like Gong Xi Fa Cai or Golden Legend.
But it just works better as an Android and/or iPhone slot, in our opinion.
This is a very simple Play’n GO slot game, mostly because you get really only 3 features:
So you’d think this would be pretty slow going; but you’d be wrong.
This is mostly thanks to those wilds, and the fact that you can get a win when any three symbols are adjacent to each other on these 15 paylines. So you get a win is reel 1, 2, and 3 have a symbol, but also if reel 2, 3 and 4, or reel 3, 4 or 5.
Same goes for 4 of a kind wins of course.
It keeps things fairly interesting, if not always giving you enough to quite make it exciting.
Thank-god then for the bonus games, which are both created specifically in order to get you to the free spins.
Because, let’s be honest, the second chance bonus which hit on 2 scatters only has one good result; getting you a third scatter to get to the bonus free spins. The cash prizes are barely worth mentioning.
But these Jade Magician slot free spins are great fun. Namely because the wild is now also an extra scatter and only 1 needs to show up in order to trigger 1 or 2 extra free spins.
You start with 5 free spins, and with those wild scatters, you can theoretically keep triggering these free spins until you hit 50.
How likely are you to get there? Well, the most we’ve seen is about 22, and a good round gives you about 15. But with those extra wilds, you certainly see the difference to your balance.
It’s not always guaranteed, especially as the free spins come often, much like in the Pimped slot machine, but considering this is the major selling point of the Jade Magician game, it’s just as well.

Wild: The wild symbol is the one that simply says 'x2' on screen, and as the image implies, gives you a 2x multiplier on any win you use. However it only appears on reel 3.
Pays On Adjacent Reels:Tthis just means that any 3 or more symbols will pay if adjacent to each other on any of the reels, as long as they fall within the 15 paylines. Much like in the Just Jewels Deluxe slot by Novomatic.
Second Chance Feature: When you get two scatters on screen (The Jade Magician herself), you get a second chance feature where you get to pick from four different symbols.
This will either win you one of two cash prizes (not more than about 2x your bet), nothing at all, or an extra scatter, which then triggers the bonus free spins.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 Jade Magician scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you'll trigger 5 free spins.
This doesn't sound like a lot, but during the free spins the scatter is now wild and when just one shows up you get a +1 or +2 free spins.
The most free spins you can get is 50.
The Jade Magician slot for mobile looks good, though perhaps doesn't quite have the same animation flair as Legend of the White Snake Lady slot, which is similarly simple.
Still, with multipliers on the wild, and frequent wins and free spins, this is a fun game to spin and works particularly well as a mobile and tablet slot.
If you're looking for a theme that's a little more fun, but doesn't have as big of a top win, the Grim Muerto slot has similar (though not exactly the same) mechanics.
