Jinse Dao Tiger Bonus Features
Like the original Jinse Dao slots, Jinse Dao Tiger also features the legendary expanding reels, where up to 3 rows may be added to the reels and glowing orbs award cash prizes. Also popular in the series, the Hit and Win and the fortune wheel bonus features can be triggered here.
Both glowing orbs and Yin and Yang symbols appear as scatters in Jinse Dao Tiger. The orbs can land on any reel and activate the Hit and Win feature and those that land on reels 2-5 carry cash values. Landing 3 Yin and Yang bonus symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5 will launch the bonus wheel round.
Hit and Win Feature
You’ll need 1-3 glowing orb symbols to land on reel 1 to activate the Hit and Win feature. During the feature, reels 2-5 expand upwards to give you an extra 1-3 rows and any glowing orbs that land within the active reels award cash prizes of 1x- 200x your stake. It’s also possible to activate the Wheel Bonus feature while the expanded rows are still in operation.
Awarded during the Hit and Win feature or triggered with 3 Yin and Yang bonus scatter on reels 3, 4 and 5, the Wheel Bonus round contains free spins and glowing orbs with cash prizes. Give it a good spin to activate the free spins round and add and an extra 40-400 orbs valued at 20x, 100x, 200x and 1,000x your stake to reels 2-5. The extra orb scatters will increase your chances of achieving big wins if the expanding reels are activated.
You can win 6 free spins from the Wheel Bonus feature and the additional glowing orbs mentioned above. Landing 1-3 orbs on reel 1 during the free spins will launch another round of the Hit and Win feature.
Jinse Dao Tiger Jackpot
Jinse Dao Tiger is part of SG’s Jackpot Wars feature where 2 avatars battle for 4 progressive jackpots in organised tournaments. However, this function isn’t available for UK players so you’ll have to make do with the game’s wins capped at 1,024x your bet.
RTP and Volatility
Beware of the game’s high volatility making bonus rounds that much harder to hit, but at least there’s the hope of hitting bigger wins even if the potential is pretty modest. Sitting above the industry average, the 96.11% RTP is pretty decent, which is always nice to see.
