Chi Slot Machine
Try ELK Studios Slots
ELK Studios has a new slot release called Chi. It is a slot that will take you to the Himalayan highlands, where you’ll be joined by two foxy-looking animals that are actually your warriors in the slot. These cute creatures will take you through the gameplay and will help you get to the maximum payout of the slot, which is an incredible one.
On both sides of the reels in the slot, you will see totems. If you manage to land a Totem symbol on the reels, you activate its respective spirit. The Blue Totem will awaken Mow, who will boost your rewards with a Multiplier from 2x to 5x, by hitting the gong-gong. The Red Totem will summon Chi, who will shoot fireballs right onto the reels and add 1 to 6 Wilds on the reels. The Wilds replace for all symbols on the reels, except for the Scatter.
You will benefit from 2 bonus features in Chi. You activate the first one by landing 3 to 5 Free Spins symbols on the reels, anywhere in sight. This is when you activate 10 to 20 Free Spins, respectively. You can retrigger the Free Spins feature. During the Free Spins, all of those Wilds that you have previously gotten by Chi will become Sticky and remain throughout the feature. Also, if you manage to hit Mow, you will activate a Progressive Multiplier that will begin with 2x but can go up to 5x.
Now, the star bonus feature is the Stairway to Fortune. You trigger it by landing 3 Scattered Bonus symbols. Mow and Chi start working together to help you reach the Fortune Reels feature. Chi will draw a number from 1 to 6 at random, while Mow will move the corresponding number of positions and increase the Multipliers. The same thing happens up until Chi draws the Collect option, and you get a payout Multiplied in accordance with the Multiplier from Mow and your bet level.
If you manage to get to the Fortune Reels, you will get a 10,000x Multiplier to your wins. But in total, the game can deliver a staggering 12,500x the stake maximum payout potential.
Theme & Design
As mentioned, the game takes to the Himalayan forests. Surrounded by a mesmerizing natural scenery, the reels represent a small Asian temple, on which you will see symbols like lotus flowers, jade stones, fire lanterns, golden gourds, flutes, fans, car fish, and cups.
In the background, you will hear a tranquil soundtrack that sets the calming tone. We must say that ELK has done a pretty amazing job in the design of this slot because visually, it is a real masterpiece.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 27 paylines in the slot, but all symbols pay both left to right and right to left, meaning you get 54 paylines that count. Your minimum bet is $0.20, but your maximum can go up to $20.00. The developer has decided to offer the average RTP for the game, of 96.00%.
When it comes to payouts, you should know that you’ll be getting quite the nice ones, considering you have a 2x and up to 5x Multiplier added to your wins on most spins. However, the game promises a maximum payout of 12,500x the stake, which in money terms means $250,000.00 for the max bet. This is an astonishing payout for a game whose maximum bet is only $20.00.
We were really impressed by Chi. It is somehow a refreshing slot, one that puts you in a relaxing state and gives you some incredible payouts to make your blood pressure go up from time to time. But the maximum payout potential is what makes the game really worth trying. Sure, the design and imagery implemented are stunning, but the payouts are what we’re all after, right? So, make sure you try out Chi as soon as you can because it is a game that you cannot miss.
