Si Xiang, translating as the four symbols, relate to four constellations that have become mythical creatures intertwined in so much of Chinese culture and philosophy. These beautiful and mythological beasts are the subject of Playtech's recent online slot, Si Xiang.

An ornate red and gold screen with gentle Chinese stringed instruments accompany the reel spins of the Si Xiang video slot, which offers only 9 paylines and no Bonus rounds.

We test the slot to explore whether the substance of the free Si Xiang slot is enough to keep players coming back for more in a market teeming with Chinese themed slots.

It's certainly easy to access. Available with no download needed you can choose to play for free or to play for real money.

When you're comfortable with gameplay and the pay structure then you're ready to play for real cash.

Mythical Beasts Galore On The Reels

Symbology from Ancient Chinese culture and philosophies infuses the aesthetics of this game. The red screen symbolises wealth and prosperity and the yin yang Wilds symbolise balance and harmony. The symbols of the four mythical beasts are beautiful, high quality 3D graphics in vibrant colours reflecting each animals' representative colour.

There is the:

  • Black Warrior - the Black Tortoise of the North, of Winter and of Water
  • Red Phoenix - the Vermilion Bird of the South, of Summer and of Fire
  • White Kirin - the White Tiger of the West, of Autumn and of Metal
  • Blue/Green Dragon - The Azure Dragon of the East, of Spring and of Wood

In the Si Xiang video slot they also each have their own importance in terms of payouts, offering lowest to highest in the order of the above. Respectively they will reward a player 750x, 1200x, 5000x and 10,000x the bet for landing 5OAK.

The Turtle, Phoenix and Tiger offer 5x the bet for landing just two symbols and the Dragon offers 10x for 2OAK and will even double the bet for landing just 1 symbol.

Low limit symbols are playing cards offering 50x - 350x the bet for 5OAK. Variance is pretty high on this slot and with no Bonus to boost your winnings you need to manage your bankroll to hold out for the 5OAKs.

What, No Bonus?

Free Spins and Bonus Rounds are so ubiquitous now in modern online slots that to find a slot with no Bonus seems out of place.

Besides the high payouts of the symbols, though, there are some other elements to a players' advantage. Winning combinations can be made both ways on a payline - left to right and right to left, increasing your winning potential.

Look out, too, for the Wild and Scatter Symbols - both crucial to boost winnings.

The Si Xiang logo Scatter Symbol is not bound by paylines at all. When it lands consecutively from reel one to the right or from reel five to the left it will payout up to 10x your bet and 100x for the full 5OAK.

Wild Symbols are the gold encased Yin Yan symbol landing on the central reels and they will double any win they complete.

Missing Your Free Spins?

If you find yourself lost without a Bonus option you could try Ainsworth's Prosperity Dragon to make up for Si Xiang's lack of extras. In this online slot Ainsworth go Free Spins crazy with layer upon layer of Free Spins Bonus options.
