Jewels of the Orient Slots

Jewels-of-the-OrientWhile Jewels of the Orient does include quite a few symbols with precious metals and gems, you get the idea pretty quickly that it’s really about the beautiful women that Asia has to offer. There are beautiful women from countries like India, Japan or China, though those are only some of the symbols available. It’s a theme that I enjoyed, and which actually tries to bring something new to the Asian theme that so many other slots are using without any imagination.

Despite the very modern look, this 5 reel slot only has up to 9 paylines for you to activate. Once the game starts, besides the regular symbols you will also encounter scatters and wilds, triggering for you free spins with multipliers. Payouts of up to $12,500 are offered.

Features of Jewels of the Orient

The wild symbol that is offered in Jewels of the Orient is nothing special, but I would use that word to describe the bonus game and the way it offers free spins, multipliers and cash prizes.

The slot’s top jackpot is offered through the wild symbol, up to five of them arranged on the same active line being required in order to get prizes. As the wild symbol, the Jewels of the Orient Logo is used to create other combinations as well, acting as whatever symbol is needed in that location, as long as it’s a regular one, not a scatter.


The most fun symbol to get is the scatter though, with its image of the Imperial Palace. Since it’s a scatter, you don’t have to get it in a certain position in order to trigger whatever it has to offer. You only need it to be in enough locations simultaneously, and you will get its reward. 3 to 5 of these Palace icons will reward you with free spins and multipliers, plus some cash prizes.

Free Games Feature

Depending on the number of scattered Palaces that you have on the screen, you get a different range for the prizes offered.


The minimum of three Palace symbols will bring you a prize between 5x and 25x the value of the bet, plus 10 to 15 free spins and multipliers between 1x and 5x.


Four Palace scatters will award more free spins, going from 15 to 20 now, with multipliers being the same at 1x to 5x, and with the cash prizes being between 20x and 100x.


Finally, getting the maximum of five Palace scatters will bring you between 20 and 40 spins for free, 1x to 5x multipliers and payouts of 50x to 120x the bet.

Betting options and jackpots

A total of 9 lines are available, and each one requires at least one coin to activate it. You can use up to 20 coins per line though, as their values are very low, going from $0.01 to $0.25. With all 20 coins per line used, at maximum denomination, the line bet is $5, while the total bet is $45.

The wild symbol gives you the biggest payout of Jewels of the Orient, multiplying the line bet by 2,500x. You can get 50,000 coins this way, or up to $12,500.

Design and symbols

It’s a gorgeous game, and Microgaming did a great job at putting the beautiful ladies of Asia front and center. There are quite a few of them among the symbols, along with some that are related to gold and treasures, and I think that they go very well together. The game’s lovely design is completed by the background image, with Asian buildings and bridges, seen at sunset.


Symbols: Game Logo (2,500x, wild), Palace (scatter, 120x bet), Girl in red (800x), Girl in yellow (500x), Girl in green (300x), Girl in blue (200x), Girl in pink (150x), Treasure Chest (100x) and Jade Pot (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a gorgeous game, with a unique theme, so you’re not going to feel like you’re playing a common slot machine. The number of paylines is the one aspect I’m not happy with, but the design and the features are definite pluses in its favor.

You will find Jewels of the Orient at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
