Named for a Chinese martial arts ceremony, Bai Shi mixes together an oriental theme with majestic animal imagery to create a game that is as easy on the eye as it is generous on the wallet.
Progressive Jackpot: No
Bai Shi is an online slot created that combines two common genres – animals and the enigmatic Orient. Developed by Playtech, Bai Shi is a five-reel slot that has four rows and up to 40 paylines. The setting for this game is a mountainous landscape marked with ancient ruins that looks remotely oriental but there’s a gentle soundtrack that suggests otherwise.
Taking a unique oriental style and complementing it with good-looking animal images to create a distinct theme, Bai Shi is a slot game that has a lot of impressive features.
First off, one can’t help but be awed by the striking and yet simple appearance that lets it be easy on the eye without compromising gameplay. That gameplay itself, too, is quite easy to grasp. However, it can get quite repetitive and somber.
That is because the game does not have a bonus round to give punters more incentive to play it for extended periods of time. It does, however, include stacked wilds and scatter symbols, which can trigger precious free spins. Those extra features, therefore, aid in improving this game’s winning potential even if they don’t add a great deal to the gameplay itself.
Add all of that to the slots exceptional array of staking options per spin and the end result is a slot that is ideal for those players that are looking for an attractive and a simple game that also deliver high payouts.
The high-value symbols are the wild animals that reside in this area and they include the female of the lion pack, two lion cubs, an eagle clutching a scroll and a gold crown. The lower values are marked by the common characters 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
While it is a relatively forthright slot game, Bai Shi does have a couple of additional game features. These are its wild symbols and its scatter symbols, which serve to initiate valuable free spins.
Depicting an image of a majestic white lion, Bai Shi’s wild symbol does more than just make up the game’s most valuable payline combinations. It also takes the place for all other symbols – except the scatters– in order to make up the most beneficial possible combinations for each spin. What’s more, when the symbols do appear, they become stacked in order to cover the whole of the reel they appear on.
Alongside the slot’s wild symbols, the other kind of special symbol featured on the Bai Shi reels is a red scatter that shows off the Chinese characters for “white king.” Those scatter symbols appear on reels two, three and four, and if three appear at once players get an immediate win worth three times their total bet and five “Majestic Night” free spins.
Majestic Night Free Spins
This is the only bonus feature and it’s initiated by landing three of the White King scatter symbols anywhere on reels two, three and four. You will earn just five free spins initially but more can be earned by landing three more scatters on those three centre reels. The wild symbol can appear stacked during this round and it also appears often to help you out with those winning combos.
