Thunderkick is one studio who has stood out from the crowd for a while now. Thanks to their unique slot creations and big success within the casino industry. This year the studio has planned to release multiple slots to be part of a new slot series, titled Beat The Beast. With 4 releases so far, all with unique qualities. Next from the studio is not part of this series and a solo creation. Titled ‘Jin Chan’s Pond Of Riches‘, set to release soon.

This slot has an Asian inspired theme, which is still a popular pick by studios when creating new releases. For me, the theme is overused and been used to its full potential now. Visuals show a unique art style used, with the backdrop set within a sort of forest. There is a pond with water Lillies and plants surrounding the forest setting. The reel set has a wooden arch behind, with coloured detailed animals carved in. I personally love the visuals aesthetics for this game and think the studio has done a fantastic job.

Jin Chan’s Pond Of Riches has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 15 set pay lines. This game is a medium variance slot with a set RTP of 94.27% and max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.

Any pay line including a wild symbol will have a multiplier based on the landing reel number. Wild symbols multiply with each other on the same pay line. Reel 1 = 1x, Reel 2 = 2x, Reel 3 = 3x, Reel 4 = 4x and Reel 5 = 5x.

Landing 3 or more scatter symbols during one spin will trigger the ‘Bonus Game‘. 3 Scatters Award = 8 Free Spins, 4 Scatters Award = 12 Free Spins and 5 Scatters Award = 16 Free Spins. During spins scatter symbols are collected and each scatters grants 1 extra spin. After 9 scatters have been collected additional scatters only grant 1 free spin each. Any win triggers the ‘Sticky Respin Feature‘, during this respin any winning symbols on a pay line will be locked and other symbols will respin. Continues until no additional winning symbols lock.


Overall, I think this slot is lacking within volatility but fun within gameplay. A set RTP as low as 94% is surprising, especially since the average is 95 % – 96%. Features are enjoyable and visuals really catch the eye. Be sure to try the game out for yourself on release. Also, be sure to check out our exclusive casino offers.
