Jin Chans Pond of Riches (Thunderkick)
Thunderkick has swum into unfamiliar waters by creating their very own version of a slot, whose main focus is the Asian market.
Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches is the tittle that Thunderkick has given this new game, and from afar, it looks as good as many others that they have previously created.
When I realized the payout potential of this slot, I was tempted to try it out, and this is my experience:
The developer went for a 5x3 reel set up with Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches. The slot has a total of 15 active lines.
For the features, I was able to work with multipliers, wilds, sticky respins as well as some cool free spins.
Betting and Prizes
The slot allows you to place bets starting from as low as $0.10 to a high of $100 per spin.
The payouts are my favourite category, and this game has the potential to deliver as much as10,000x the stake, from a single spin.
A slot with such high payout is most likely going to have high volatility and is the case with Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches.
Even with what appears to be a perfect design, the slot has a few downsides, and one is the RTP.
Thunderkick has announced an RTP of 94.27% for this game, and it falls way below 96%, the average in the market.
Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches Slot Features
Wild symbols are the most obvious feature of this slot. When combined with multipliers, the results are more impressive.
Wild multipliers will appear on Reels 1 to 5, and they will be between 1x to 5x. You can also get a combined multiplier of 120x, but this will require you to land a regular symbol on the 1st reel, alongside some wilds on all the other four reels. These musts also sapper along the same line. The result will be a huge boost of 120x (2x3x4x5) to the win.
With the help of bonus symbols, this slot will reward you with between 8 and16 free rounds. However, before this happens, you will need to land between 3 and 5 triggering symbols (Gold Coin) on the reels.
Theme & Design
If you have played Thunderkick games already, you will agree with me that the developer creates games with above-average graphics.
Despite the slot having a Chinese theme, it still manages to deliver great gameplay.
Royals are present, and they appear in a metallic design. For its regular symbols, Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches has used Jin Chan (frog), birds, as well as some turtles, and decorative fish.
Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches appears to be a great video slot, but the RTP does not make it a very attractive slot to many players.
This would have been a perfect video machine, but considering the risk that is involved, it may not be a great game to play for real money.
