Explore the Enchantment of the Orient With Jade Butterfly
When it comes to modern slots it is best to be simple, with a few clever extras, and this is just what Jade Butterfly manages to do.
Pragmatic Play may not rank among the biggest names in the slots world, but they are certainly a company on the rise. In fact, they won the Innovation in Slot Provision Award at the EGR B2B Awards earlier this year. There is a lot to love about these guys, and they have already tasted success with their fun and popular slot Leprechaun Song. This is one of the most recent offerings from a company that is definitely going places, and certainly making waves in the slots market.
Well, moving away from Leprechauns and pots of gold for a moment, with Jade Butterfly, the latest Pragmatic Play offering, Canadian players get to enjoy the beauty and elegance of the Orient in this retro slot game. And we don’t mean retro in the old-fashioned sense of the word – no worries there! This is a game with some wonderfully colourful and attractive symbols, not to mention some basic and enjoyable gameplay.
Too many slots these days try to reinvent the wheel, and many of them come pretty close, but the fact is that none of them can quite manage it. When it comes to modern slots, it is best to be simple, with a few clever extras, and this is just what Jade Butterfly manages to do.
As we saw when they released 5 Lions, Pragmatic Play likes to keep things uncomplicated and work on providing a memorable and fun slot experience. There is a lot to like about this company, and the growth they’ve enjoyed this year is a good sign for the future, and for more great games as well.
Wearing its influences on its sleeve, the game is very much a nod to Asian culture, and the symbols and music thoroughly embrace this. Now, things aren’t all glowing here – the individual reel respins, for example, can often infuriate. This is one of the features that seasoned slots enthusiasts will view as a waste of time, and one of the big negative aspects of the game.
So, what about the gameplay and the bonus features? Well, wilds only appear on reels 2 and 4, which is another disappointing aspect of the game. But, the free spins round does make up for this because it has wilds available on every reel. This allows players to build up big wins and work toward those jackpots. Land 3, 4, or 5 scatters to unlock the bonus reels and start making big bucks with 13 free spins!
Melissa Summerfield, Pragmatic Play’s CCO talked about the great aspects of the game and was quoted speaking in glowing terms about the “…intuitive features and innovative, strategy-centric reels…” Many players will be thinking the game could have done better in this regard.
