Vital energy flow
Chi is one of the ELK Studios releases for spring 2019. It is a martial arts slot that runs through an idyllic oriental landscape during the sakura, and is dedicated to two fox-shaped spirits: Chi and Mow.
The game screen is actually a temple to invoke the two fighting spirits in 3 × 5 format (3 rollers of 5 heights each), with 54 possible combinations in both directions. Chi has RTP 96% and high volatility (9/10), with an adjustable bet between € 0.20 and € 20 per spin, for a potential maximum prize per combination of € 250,000. That’s 12,500 times your bet playing with the maximum available, which is not bad at all.
Chi allows you to design your game strategy to measure your forces during the game, and is loaded with wild cards of all kinds (random, additional, waterproof and common), plus bonus symbols, scatters, multipliers and rounds of free spins. One of its most particular characteristics is that its narrow rollers rotate horizontally.
- Lotus flower: X10 times your bet per combination
- Red lamp: X6
- Yellow Pumpkin: X5
- Green Jades: X3
- Carp, cup, flute and yellow jade stone: between X2.5 to X2
On both sides of the Taoist temple on which the rollers rotate, you will see two totems: the one on the left (red) is to invoke Chi, and the one on the right (blue) Mow. If you complete the Chi symbol, reward you with between 1 and 6 wild cards. If it happens during a round of free spins, they are waterproof wild cards. Mow gives you a multiplier between X2 and X5 for completing its symbol. And if it is in the free spins it is a progressive multiplier from X2 to X5 that is applied in the successive spins.
- Bonus: 3 symbols start the Stairway to Fortune function, with which Chi and Mow work together. The first one chooses a number from 1 to 6 and the second one ascends the corresponding steps towards the Lucky Rollers with the multiplier that has touched you (between X8 and X200), which will be applied to the next roll.
- Wildcard WILD: replaces all regular symbols
- Scatter FREE SPINS: 3 or more start reactivatable free spins.
The best of playing Chi
For starters, the maximum prize potential X12,500 is more than appealing, and it is that rounds of free spins with multipliers and waterproof wild cards are one of the main attractions of the game. They are joined by the bonus wheel with massive multipliers and an impeccable design that combines the best of nature’s energy and martial arts culture.
