Eastern Emeralds Megaways Slot Review – Quickspin
It has been a hot minute since I last reviewed any new releases from studio Quickspin. My most recent was for the game titled ‘Sticky Bandits Trail Of Blood’, which has a max win capped 17,000x and a Free Spins feature with sticky wilds. Today we are learning all about ‘Eastern Emeralds Megaways’, which is available to play exclusively on Leo Vegas and releasing worldwide on October 11th.
The original game is titled ‘Eastern Emeralds‘, released on 29th October 2018. Sticking with the original Asian Wilderness theme. The game background shows off a beautiful landscape with tall mountains, temples and trees. The reel border is a temple structure, with golden details and vibrant symbols. Symbols are represented by the typical 10 to A and golden Asian inspired items such as koi fish.
Eastern Emeralds Megaways has a setup of 5 reels by 2-7 rows; this includes up to 16,807 Megaways. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.04% and a max win capped at 17,800x. You can bet from £0.20 to £100.
Eastern Emeralds Megaways Pay Table & Symbols
There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. There are 5 premium symbols; these are represented by golden engraved coins, Sycees, Turtles, Koi Fish and Golden dragon heads. In addition to these regular symbols is a Phoenix Scatter and a Multiplier wild. The highest paying symbol is the Golden dragon head premium, which pays 3x for 5 across a pay line. Multiplier Wilds can appear on reels 2 to 5 and substitute for all symbols except the scatter. If 2 or more Multiplier Wild symbols appear and are part of the same win, the corresponding multipliers are multiplied. Multiplier Wilds in the base game have the same multiplier value as the reel they land on.
Eastern Emeralds Megaways Features
Landing 3 or more scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. You can also purchase this feature for 90x your current stake. There is an option to gamble your spins if the feature is triggered with 3 or 4 scatters. There is a 50/50 chance of winning to the Next Level; losing the gamble will result in you losing your feature. You can pick from one of four Free Spin options; these are;
- 15, 30 or 60 Free Spins with Multiplier Wilds of 2x, 3x, 4x and 5x.
- 12, 24 or 48 Free Spins with Multiplier Wilds of 3x, 4x, 5x or 6x.

Overall, I think this slot is the perfect game sequel with the new Megaways mechanic added and high variance on offer. With a max win capped at 17,800x and a Free Spins feature with combining multipliers up to 24x. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
