Whats not so hot?
Thai Emerald video slot from RealTime Gaming introduces players to three things.
Firstly is the thriving Thailand jungle with its flowers and birds. Year-round travelers inundate Thailand as a destination holiday spot.
The slot introduces you to the emerald gemstone which the Thai people mine.
We did a bit of research and noted that nowhere does the emerald pop up in Thailand.
Therefore, we have reason to believe that the ‘Thai Emerald’ is Thailand’s pristine jungles.
RealTime Gaming takes you to the islands where you can earn a potential 2,000x your bet.
How’s that for a bit of sightseeing? Play occurs on a 3×5 grid with 25 paylines.
Moreover, this includes stacked reels and free spins at the top instant payout casinos online.
The betting range starts off with $0.25 while the maximum wager is $12.50.
The coin denomination is well within the range of most budgets. When you play don’t overplay your bankroll, and always play it safe!
If you had a big win bank 75% of your winning and play with the rest.
Note, RTG did not publish the Return to Player of Thai Emerald. We guess it to be in the normal range of 96%.
However, the game comes with high volatility, so it might be a tad below 96%. Make a mental note of that before you play.
The backdrop to the reels is an exceptionally realistic 3D pool filling up with a waterfall.
The regular symbols are cards from 9 to A. Winning combinations of 5 identical symbols for the 9, 10, and J offers a win of 100x your bet.
Your Q, K, and A card carry a payout of 150x coins for 5 identical symbols.
A banana bunch carries a value of 250x for the same land total.
The beautiful Frangipani flower of Thailand earns you 350x for 5 falls, while the butterfly’s value is 750x your bet.
The Macaque monkey steals the show with a payout of 2000x.
The parrot is the wild that substitutes all symbols except the mystery symbol. However, the wild only has value when it appears on the 3 center reels.
The mystery symbol is an emerald, which can randomly morph into any other symbol.
When it falls on reels 2, 3, or 4, free spins and thus extra mystery symbols activate.
This feature only activates once the mystery stack feature has run through.
Gameplay features are few and hardly worth mentioning beyond the mystery symbol’s elements, like free spins.
When the mystery symbol emerald drops into the center reels. It becomes stacked and activates a maximum of 8x free spins.
They retrigger during the spins and keep dropping the coins in your bankroll.
Thai Emerald can run on Autoplay for a more leisurely slot experience. Unfortunately, this feature excludes all UK machines due to legislation.
As is standard, the machine only pays the highest win on a payline.
The dominant winning feature is when you land 5 of the monkey symbols. Other than that the excitement is few and far between.
You might like the fact that the emerald symbol is indeed mysterious. The reason why we say so is that it mutates into any of the other symbols.
However, it does not happen often, and gameplay can become tedious.
We would have liked to see the beauty of Thailand and its natural inhabitants become more animated in the game.
Twister Wilds is another top-notch slot machine from RealTime Gaming.
Not online does the slot offer you a grand cash prize of 50,000x the stake.
It greases the wheels with Expanding Wilds, Free Spins, and 2 progressive jackpots.
