Give the orient one thing, they inspire some of the brightest and most beautiful slots we have seen. One such slot is the Jade Butterfly game developed by none other than Pragmatic Play. With an interesting individual reel respin feature and a great bonus spins round, will the Jade Butterfly bring you luck?
Jade Butterfly is a 5-reel, 1024 ways to win slot offering players an RTP of 96.47%. The reels are set out inside a jade temple structure and filled with bright, colourful symbols. In the background you get just a glimpse of cherry blossoms too, which are the staple of any oriental themed slot, but certainly pretty to look at. The symbols are all bold and eye catching with higher values being depicted by different coloured lotus flowers, gold, purple, orange, green and blue. Lower value symbols are shown by golden edged card denominations A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9, and each one has a small golden butterfly landing on it.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Jade Butterfly begins at 30p per spin and can be adjusted to £150 per spin. Amend those bets by clicking the plus or minus symbols on either side of the spin button. This will open the bet amounts and you can change the coin value or coin level until you are happy with your bet.
Wild Symbol – Following in its namesake, the wild is a beautiful Jade Butterfly. It will substitute for all other symbols except for the scatter. It will only appear on reels 2 and 4 in the main game, or reels 2, 3 and 4 in the bonus game.
Scatter Symbol – A golden edged mandala is your scatter symbol and landing three or more of these anywhere on the reels will trigger your bonus game. Scatter wins are also active within Jade Butterfly, so by landing just 2 or more symbols anywhere on the reels, you will also trigger an extra win on top of your line win. The scatter win multipliers increase as the stake increases, so be sure to check the pay tables prior to spinning after each stake change.
Reel Respin Feature – At the bottom of every reel there is a little price tag, this is to give you the option of respinning each reel at your will. The cost per respin will change after every spin, depending upon the symbols that have landed and the potential outcome of the reels respin. This feature is particularly handy if you have two scatters on the reels and want to nudge the other reels until your get the third. But be sure this is the way you want to go, as the respin costs can eat into your balance if they don’t go in your favour.
Bonus Spins Feature – Having landed three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels your bonus spins will begin. You will be allocated with 13 bonus spins to play through and given a x3 multiplier on every win made during the round. Land three or more scatter symbols during the bonus spins to retrigger the feature. There is no limit on the amount of times you can retrigger either, meaning if you are lucky you could be looking at spending quite some time in the bonus round!
Jade Butterfly is a simple yet effective slot that plays well, along with providing fast wins in both the main and bonus games. Pragmatic Play have added the individual reel respin feature which was a great thing to do. We love having the chance to respin individual reels to force the hand in our favours. Be prepared to be respinning those reels for some time though. So, if that is an option you want to take make sure you are happy with the cost of the respin, otherwise just go back to spinning the whole set instead. Aside from that, we have nothing negative to say regarding the game, as the wins came regularly within both the base and bonus games. We even managed to retrigger the bonus round albeit only once, but once was enough for us.
