Yutu Slot Machine
Slot machines with really authentic themes are really rare lately, and finding one is like hitting the jackpot. Playtech’s newest slot release features a theme that cannot be found anywhere else. It features a rabbit from the Chinese folklore that lives on the Moon. The name of the slot Yutu comes from the Chinese lunar rover that landed on the Moon, which in turn was named after the Moon Rabbit from the legend. As you can see, although it tells a story from the Chinese culture, you have never heard of this rabbit in other slot games. If you’re intrigued and want to learn something more about this authentically themed slot, stay tuned.
The features in Yutu are fairly standard and you have the Wild, the Scatter, and the Free Spins present.
The Wild is the Gold Crab, which can land on specific reels only, more precisely the last four reels. It can substitute for any other regular symbol and help you form winning combos.
The Rabbit and the Moon symbols will appear on the screen and you will have to choose which one will be your Scatter out of the two. Regardless of your choice, the Scatter can appear on the first three reels. When you manage to land three Scatter symbols, you will get a 4x the stake on your total win and you will trigger the Free Spins feature.
After you trigger the Free Spins feature, you’ll be initially rewarded with 10 spins, but this feature can be retriggered and it can give you another 5 spins if three Scatters appear again. In that case, you will get an extra Wild on each of the last four reels. These Stacked Golden Carbs can appear only during the Free Spins and can help you fill up multiple reels with Wilds, meaning reward you with the highest wins.
Theme & Design
To release an original slot with a unique theme is not an easy task these days, and Playtech has succeeded in that with ease. As you can see, the slot tells the story of the rabbit from the Ancient Chinese legends, unheard before and untold in other slot games. The symbols represent aspects of the legend and include a fox, monkeys, fruits, the Rabbit, the Moon, and the crab. When it comes to the graphics, they are, as expected from Playtech, impeccable. The gameplay is designed to be fairly straightforward.
Wagering & Paylines
The bet you can place per line is $0.01 and considering there are 50 fixed paylines, the minimum bet per spin is $0.50. The most you can place per line is $10, meaning the maximum bet is $500.00. The game potential is 1,000x per a round meaning for a maximum bet, you could be a potential winner of $500,000.00. Even though the RTP is not disclosed yet, that maximum payout is pretty attractive.
Theme-wise, the Yutu slot machine is unrivaled. In terms of payouts, the $500,000.00 could leave you breathless if you manage to hit them. When it comes to features and design, the game is simple yet appealing for its simplicity. Overall, there is a great potential in this game, because the bet ranges are convenient and the theme is superb, so it will come as no surprise if Yutu becomes Playtech’s next huge hit.
