Platipus Gaming’s Jade Valley slot is visually pleasing with a pleasant soundtrack. As you spin the reels, you join the brave warrior as he travels through the valley to save the beautiful princess. The background images and purple reels with beautifuly symbols create a peaceful image on the screen. The wild is a blossoming peach tree which can appear stacked on the reels. When the stacked wilds help create winning pay lines, they join together and you get to watch the tree grow. Another special symbol is the red scatter fan. Symbols you want to see on the reels are the green coin bonus symbols. When enough of these symbols appear, they trigger the Re-Spin Feature. This feature comes with three re-spins and extra payouts. There are jackpots available in the Coin Chain Feature that pay out according to your betting level.
Jade Valley has five reels and three rows with 50 pay lines. Place your bets from as little as 0.01 per line, which results in a 0.50 minimum bet per spin. The maximum possible bet is 2.00 per line, totaling 100.00 per spin. Jade Valley is a crisp and clearly designed slot which is easy to play. Simply pick your betting level and spin the reels to get started. You can also pick Auto Play and set the reels to spin more quickly.
The Jade Valley slot game has fairly straightforward payouts. The Coin Chain Re-Spin Feature is where the big wins are. When you play at the maximum betting level, you can win up to 200,000 coins in the Grand Jackpot. The slot’s RTP (return to player) is on the slightly lower side, however, it is still possible to hit bigger wins. Regular wins in the base game come with a top payout of 500x the line bet when you hit five princess symbols.
The beautiful flower wild substitute symbol takes the place of all symbols other than the scatters and the bonus symbols. This symbol only appears on reels two, three, four, or five. Wild substitutions help create more winning pay lines. When wilds appear stacked two or three high on a single reel, the symbols can join together. The wild peach tree grows only when the wilds can help form winning combinations.
When you see three or more scatter fan symbols, they pay out in any position on the reels. Scatters pay out multiplied by the total bet rather than the line bet as is paid out in regular wins.
The green bonus symbols active the re-spin special feature. These symbols often appear stacked two or three high on the reels. When you see a combination that includes six or more green bonus symbols on the reels, they trigger the re-spin feature.
The Coin Chain Re-Spin feature triggers when you see six or more green coin bonus symbols on the reels. Start out with three re-spins. During re-spins, each symbol’s cell rotates on its own. The reels do not spin as they do in the main game. Should an extra bonus symbol appear during a re-spin, the remaining re-spin total is reset to three.
Each of the coins show information regarding winnings. You can win cash awards, and even a jackpot symbol. Any bonus symbols that appear during the re-spins rounds remain stuck on the reels until you complete all three re-spins. The Coin Chain re-spin feature ends either after you complete three re-spins or if enough coins trigger the Grand Jackpot. Since the Grand Jackpot pays out when the screen is filled with the green bonus coins, there is no need for additional re-spins.
During the re-spins feature, coins may appear with the words Mini, Minor, or Major. These coins pay out special jackpot prizes according to your betting level. When you play the maximum bet, the Mini Jackpot pays out 2,000 coins. The Minor Jackpot pays out 10,000 coins and the Major Jackpot pays out 50,000 coins. It is possible to win these jackpot prizes multiple times in a single re-spin round.
However, this is not all as far as the jackpot prizes are concerned. There is also a Grand Jackpot. The Grand Jackpot does not have its own special bonus coin symbol. This jackpot pays out when every space on the reels contains a green bonus coin, totally 15 bonus coins. The Grand Jackpot pays out a huge 200,000 coins. When there is a jackpot win, all coin symbol prizes pay out in addition to the jackpot prize.
Platipus Gaming designed Jade Valley so you can play it on your desktop computer or mobile device. Since it plays on the HTML5 technology, there is no need to download extra software to your smartphone or tablet. Simply go to your device’s web browser, log in to a casino where you find this slot, and tap on the slot icon in the games lobby. The game opens up quickly and you can begin play.
Jade Valley is a pleasant slot to play. We like the graphics and soundtrack but would prefer a few more special features. While the Coin Chain Re-Spin Feature is great, it does take a long time to trigger. We miss free spins and would have liked a gamble feature to make the slot more exciting.
