Wu Xing Slot

When you hear that an online slot has a Chinese theme you likely start assuming that it’s going to be based on luck and good fortune, just like the Lucky Tree slot machine by Bally and the Wishing You Fortune slot machine by WMS, but Blueprint Gaming’s Wu Xing slot machine is actually based on Chinese philosophy.

The term Wu Xing is also known as the Five Elements, which are used to describe interactions and relationships between things that appear, and these have been employed in many field of Chinese research from medicine to astrology and even military strategy. These Five Elements are Wood, Earth, Water, Fire, and Metal which will see you rewarded with big wins for linking them up on the reels.

Five Reels for Five Elements

You’ll feel like you’re having an out of world experience once you load the reels as the background has a somewhat spiritual design with all of the different elements flying around in a spiral. The soft and gentle soundtrack of gongs being beat and cymbols being clashed also plays out throughout, with a much more frantic and upbeat tune bellowing over the top of it once you click the spin button.

Wu Xing is a 5-reeled online slot containing 40 fixed paylines which is standard enough but the meagre return to player percentage of 92.50% is sure to put many of you spinning these reels – it’s certainly highly volatile. To walk away with big wins here you’ll be needing the 5 Elements feature which can see energy shoot around the reels to transform random positions into mystery symbols before revealing the same symbol to hopefully create a win, the free spins mode which boasts a Super Spins feature to trigger regularly, and if you’re really lucky you could even scoop the Jackpot King Progressive!

Get Your Philosophers Hat On

While philosophy is probably a subject best left to the brainboxes of the world, no degree is required to spin these reels, so get your philosophers hat on and start exploring how the Five Elements work.

The Wild symbol is simply the word and this can substitute for the two types of Yin and Yang Scatter symbols that you’ll encounter with the Chinese designs for Wood, Earth, Water, Fire and Metal featuring alongside Ace to 10 icons which have been designed with an oriental twist.

Yin and Yang’s Lead to Free Spins

Unless you’ve been living under a rock all your life you will have encountered the Yin and Yang symbol before, which is a said to represent harmony in the universe as seemingly opposite forces prove to be complimentary, and you’ll certainly be feeling harmonious whenever you see three or more of them appear on the reels at once as this means you’ve triggered the free spins mode.

The more symbols you trigger the feature with the better as three will award you five free spins with one super spin, four earn you five free spins with two super spins, and five on the screen at once will see you receive five free spins with three super spins.

Your super spin will play out first as you see a multiplier ladder on the reels (this is very exciting to climb whenever you manage to trigger the feature with four or five free spins) ranging in value from 1x to 100x your stake. Once your super spins have been played your five normal free spins will then begin with the aim being to land as many Scatter symbols as you can as these will award you the Scatter win worth the value that you finished on the multiplier ladder, plus it’s even possible to win additional free spins or super spins by landing more of the Yin and Yang symbols you triggered the feature with.

You don’t need to be a philosopher to see how incredibly lucrative this feature can be!

Putting All the Elements Together

The Five Elements may be an irreplaceable concept in Chinese philosophy, but unfortunately the Wu Xing slot machine is very replaceable due to the poor RTP and the basic symbols that feature on the reels.

While I enjoyed the Five Elements feature where you will enjoy mystery symbols, it’s all about the free spins feature where you will need to accumulate a big Scatter win value from your super spins to make your five normal free spins worthwhile, and while it is also linked to the Jackpot King Progressive, you can scoop the jackpot on the Lion Festival slot machine and many others too so that’s not enough reason to bore yourself with philosophy!
