Chi Technical Features
Chi is played on three reels and five rows. There are 27 paylines paying both ways to create 54 paylines overall.
Unusually, the reels spin horizontally instead of vertically when you press the ‘spin’ button. You’ll win a prize or trigger a bonus feature if you match three or more symbols on a payline: standard symbols award cash payouts while bonus symbols activate the features.
Click on the coins icon in the bottom-left corner to open the bet setup menu, where you can pick a wager of 0.20 to 20.00 per spin. Chi’s RTP is 96%.
The beautiful Lotus Flower is the top-paying symbol in Chi, offering between 2x and 10x your bet. The traditional red Chinese Lantern awards a maximum payout of 6x your bet. Match 3 or more Golden Gourd symbols to win up to 4x your bet. The Jade Stones award a top prize of 2.40x.
The Red Fish and Blue Cup symbols both pay between 0.50x and 2.50x. Finally, the Green Flute and Yellow Wheel symbols award up to 2x your bet.
Chi Bonus Features
The Wild can replace any other symbol except for the Free Spins and Bonus symbols.
If you land Chi (the fire spirit) on the small set of reels on the left-hand side of the grid, one to six Wilds will be added to the reels. But if Chi lands during the Free Spins feature instead, any Wilds he awards will become sticky!
When Mow, the wind spirit, appears on the small set of reels on the right-hand side of the grid, a multiplier of between 2x and 5x will be awarded. His first appearance during the Free Spins feature will award a 2x progressive multiplier, and every other appearance after that will boost the multiplier by 1x up to a maximum of 5x.
Stairway to Fortune
Match three Bonus symbols to trigger the Stairway to Fortune bonus game. Chi will draw a random number between one and six, then Mow will take the corresponding number of steps along a cloud path leading to the Fortune Reels.
If Chi draws ‘collect’ instead of a number, Mow’s current multiplier value will be collected and you’ll go back to the base game. But if Mow reaches the Fortune Reels, one spin on each of its reels will be awarded and all multipliers collected will be added.
In the first section of the feature, following Mow on his path to the Fortune Reels, the multipliers available range from 2x to 200x. But the top multiplier available when Mow gets to the Fortune Reels is 10,000x!
Free Spins Feature
Land three or more Free Spins symbols during the base game to trigger the Free Spins feature! The number of spins awarded is based on how many symbols trigger the round:
- 3 Free Spins symbols: 10 free spins
- 4 Free Spins symbols: 15 free spins
- 5 Free Spins symbols: 20 free spins
But you can retrigger the feature if you land another three or four Free Spins symbols on a free spin!
Chi Theme and Design
Chi is a beautifully crafted slot from the ever-reliable ELK Studios team, boasting amazing visuals, peaceful music, and outstanding animation. It gets off to a strong start with Chi and Mow, the loveable lead characters, introduced during an exciting animated sequence at the start. They’re shown flying across the sky, on clouds, towards the ancient city at the heart of the game.
The background scene is a graphical treat from start to finish, too. Cherry blossoms sway in the breeze and their petals drift lazily to the ground, with tall buildings standing on top of mountains in the distance, high up in the clouds. There’s plenty to feast your eyes on while you play!
Conclusion and Verdict
ELK Studios’ Chi has a lot to recommend it, from the exciting theme to the high payouts up for grabs during the Stairway to Fortune feature. Chi and Mow are a wonderful addition to the game, with cute designs and special powers. They could help you grab the top prize on offer, and even increase your chances of winning big during the bonuses, too! So, what are you waiting for? Play Chi at Genting Casino today!
