There’s something truly magical about the styling of old Egypt. Red and gold are colours that have always worked well, and no other nation or culture has monopolised those colours as well as China has.
While seeing them in just about every title can get a bit monotonous, but this iSoftBet release does enough differently to help it stand out. The game offers several special features to players hoping to make use of it – expanding Wilds in specific reel positions, and a free spins bonus that allows higher paying symbols to upgrade to the more valuable icon.
Symbols include playing card icons which include J, Q, K and A with a Chinese décor, as well as a pair of red money wallets, lanterns, golden coins, frogs, bowls, and a golden dragon’s face. Special symbols include an Asian woman in red, which is a Wild, and a yin-yang system with a green dragon and a golden swan, which is the Scatter.
iSoftBet is a iGaming company based in London, with plenty of licenses world-wide. It’s been around for a few years, and has plenty of popular branded titles, such as 24, Rambo, and Beverly Hills. The games we’ve played were varied in quality – while a good number of them had great quality, a fair amount of titles were simply subpar.
iSoftBet’s speciality seem to be with 3×3 playing field games, as several of their titles have had interesting innovations like optional reels. Still, compared to larger studios, the company is still lagging behind – here’s hoping the upcoming year treats them better.
How to Play it
The game is played on a 5×3 playing field with 10 fixed paylines, which means gamblers cannot turn some paylines on or off in order to decrease the minimum bet. Instead, they can only set the bet by using the coin value. The user interface looks quite nice – a semi-transparent, black reel with glowing white buttons, save for the Spin which is large and green to help it stand out.
Still, certain parts are clearly done in such a way as to work for both mobile and desktop version at once – the paytable is one of them, as it’s clearly designed with a touchscreen in mind.
Gamblers can bet between $0.01 up to $100 per spin, which is an awesome bet spread that should allow every level of player to find a wager that suits them, and be able to play with that comfortably. You also have access to an Autoplay function if you want to use it – with which you can set a single win limit, or a regular loss limit under advanced settings.
The background image seems to be one of a large, richly decorated shrine. A beautiful building with two, scarlet pillars, and golden dragons wrapping around them. Two dragon heads sit off to the side of the playing field, and a pair of lanterns hang above them. Symbols have small, repeating animations, which could have been looped a bit better, but we like the visuals over-all.
Pick Your Bonus and Play Pearl of the Orient Slot On Your Mobile:
There are two bonuses available to players. The first is rather simple – a mystery woman dressed in Red is a Wild, which can only appear on reels two, three and four. While she doesn’t have a cash prize of her own, when she lands, the Wild expands to cover that entire reel, meaning players can have up to three entirely Wild reels on each spin.
The second available special feature are the free spins. Collecting three, four or five Scatters grants a cash prize worth 2x, 20x, or 50x the stake, respectively, as well as twelve free spins no matter how many Scatters trigger the bonus. During free spins, each Wild that appears upgrades a high value symbol into the next most lucrative one. This means money wallets become lanterns, lanterns turn into golden coins, and so on.
The largest jackpot you can score isn’t that amazing – it’s 500x the wager. There are certainly better pays than that, especially since we’re talking about a title that has a medium to high volatility. The RTP for Pearl of the Orient is 95.97%, which is above average for video slots.
This iSoftBet release turned out to be a mixed bag after we played it. The graphics are good, bordering great, the gameplay can be a lot of fun with upgrading symbols, expanding Wilds and free spins, and the jackpots, admittedly, could be a bit higher. While it’s rather enjoyable, there are better titles if you’re hoping to get some solid wins.
