Asian Beauty Pokie Game
The Oriental theme is a mainstay of online Pokie games to say the least and one of the favoured games among players around the world to make full use of the theme in question is Microgaming’s Asian Beauty. It lives up to its name by being one of the best looking games around, more than measuring up to all of the most modern releases, and this is by no means a case of style over substance, with 243 ways to win and plenty of excellent features to enjoy.
Game Type: Video Pokie
Win Lines: 243 ways to win
Special Features: Free spins, wild card and pick a win bonus game
Top Prize: 20,000 coins
As with many of Microgaming’s 243 ways to win games, Asian Beauty is far simpler to play than you might expect. Bet sizes are based on coin values rather than specific lines and adjusting those is a simple case of hitting the plus and minus buttons. You can see how the different bet sizes affect your gameplay by checking out the pay table and, when you’re happy with your selections, you can either hit Bet Max or Spin to get the reels into play.
Asian Beauty would be a fun game even without additional features thanks to just how quickly the wins pile up. The betting pattern means that any combination of three or more matching symbols starting from the first reel becomes a winner regardless of how they’re touching, but we’re just as interested in the fun aspect as the results! That’s where the main features come in and they all kick off with the Asian Beauty logo. That’s the wild card and it is joined on the main board by the wooden chest which serves as a scatter.
As with most Microgaming scatter symbols, the scatter is responsible for getting players into the main bonus round, although this is definitely a case of the more the merrier, with extra scatters awarding a bigger bonus. Specifically, three scatters award ten free spins, four award fifteen and five in view award a tasty 25 bonus spins. Even if you only hit the minimum amount, you’ll be pleased to see that every free spin sees a three times multiplier applied to all prizes.
Rounding off the feature action is something unique to this particular game and it brings the Asian Beauties themselves into the equation. The Mirror Bonus, as it’s known, triggers at random and will lead to the player being presented with twelve different mirrors. Each of the Beauties has a prize value attached and whichever you discover three of first makes for your bonus cash prize.
Game Culture’s Opinion
Even today, Asian Beauty remains a great looking Pokie game, something that is truly appropriate given the name. It covers all the basics with wilds, scatters, multipliers and free spins and then takes things to the next level with the Mirror Bonus. In short, there’s always something going on in this Pokie and it’s a great game for anyone that enjoys fast paced action.
