Is this the well-balanced game it hopes to be? Well, not quite, but this Yin & Yang mobile slot is interesting enough to be worthy of a second look.
We like it when casino games providers try and do something a little different. In this case, you get to play two 3 reel oriental slot games at once.
That right, the screen is split between two sets of reels, the white ones and the dark ones. They both have 5 paylines, they both have the same symbols and the same paytable.
And visually it’s very striking; from the soft glow of the morning light to the imaginative mahjong tiles as the lower paying symbols, you can happily spin for ages… until you look at the paytable.
This, right there is the problem. And whilst the minimum bet of 0.10 isn’t huge, you are paying to play on both sets of slot games at once, so it’s not as cheap as the 0.05 minimum bet it should be.
Second, the maximum you can win, if you get stacks of the dragon symbol on all reels, on both sets would be… 150 times your bet. Not bad for some classic Yin & Yang slots?
Sure. But that makes the top win in one set of reels only 75 times your bet, and frankly getting stacks of any symbol here is unlikely. Thank-god then, for the small dragon and the free spins.
Randomly the little dragon hiding in the pot may wake up and add extra wilds, join reels together, or give you extra bonus symbols. It’s nice to watch and distracts you from the fact that you’re not seeing many big wins.
Hopefully, you catch the Yin & Yang slot bonus games quickly, and then things get interesting. Because you’ll have at least 2 sticky wilds on the screen at all times, and one singular 6 reels fruity.
Now you can capture 4, 5 or even 6 of a kind wins and try and get that impossible 35,111 times your bet that this slot game boasts.
That number alone grants this Leander slot machine a little leeway, if only because we can forgive a slow base game if the free spins can truly deliver.
After all, this Yin and Yang video slot are all about finding balance.

This Yin and Yang slot on mobile is a little bit of an odd creature, but definitely better the other Asian inspired Leander game, as you can read in our than Golden Wild slot review.
In the base game, you are basically playing 2 sets of classic slots, with small wins keeping you topped up, and the dragon bringing some small feature to life.
Catch the free spins, however, and it turns into this beast of a 6 reel video slot where you chase big wins over 5 paylines full of sticky wilds. Or catch nothing at all.
It's probably a little too black or too white for most out there, but we have to say that we saw a glimmer of brilliance in the mechanics that will make us come back.
Yin & Yang is a 6 reel 3 row slot machine with 5 paylines, two sets of games in the base game, and free spins that joined up the reels and give you extra sticky wilds.
