A virtual trip to the Far East is a regular occurrence for online slots fans and in Celestial King we have another chance to visit the mysterious and inscrutable orient; it’s a game developed by Bally Technologies with some hefty jackpot prizes and free spins chucked in for good measure.
Celestial King is a five reel slot with three rows and thirty fixed paylines; those gold-framed reels occupy the centre of the screen against a backdrop of ornate, golden, Chinese buildings just peeking out above the drifting clouds.
The higher value symbols are the priestess, the pig, the golden medal, the coin and the lotus flower; J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wild is the stylised king and he will replace all others to help form winning combinations except for the jackpot wild, the dragon bonus and the blue scatter symbols.
The Jackpot Wild acts as a normal wild symbol but if you can land five on an active payline it will award the Grand Jackpot which is 1250x your line stake. Note that you must be using stakes of at least £4 per spin to qualify for this prize.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the dragon bonus symbols anywhere in view for which you will receive an initial eight free spins but these can be retriggered. There’s no Jackpot Wild symbol in this round.
Celestial King Respins
Trigger this by landing at least five of the blue scatter symbols anywhere in view; those symbols will remain locked in place and the reels will change shape so that reels one, two, three, four and five contain three, four, five, six and seven rows respectively.
You’ll start with three free spins and the only symbols on these reels will now be scatter symbols and the Celestial King; each scatter which lands will freeze in place, display a multiplier value of up to 50x your stake and reset the number of spins to three.
When no more scatter symbols land the prize of all those multiplier values is awarded.
Celestial King is an odd but enjoyable little slot with some admirably large jackpot prizes and three well-designed bonus features of which our favourite is the Celestial King Respins. Give it a try if you fancy something slightly unusual – it comes with an RTP of exactly 96.00%.
