Chi Free Demo Play

ELK is not among the best-known studios, which is a shame as they have some really cool titles in their portfolio. The Ecuador Gold, one of ELK’s early 2019 releases, turned out to be a smash hit. Now, Chi is in the works and from the look of it, we should set our expectations high.

If you have been playing slot games for at least two years, you must be sick and tired of Chinese, Viking, and animal-themed slots, featuring the bare minimum of bonus features most of which are impossible to trigger. Luckily, Chi is a completely different story. It has turned the slots production upside down. No jokes here.

The Best Online Casinos & Bonuses to Play Chi for Real Money

Chi - Slot Review

Chi is a vertical, pay-both-ways slot that has 5 horizontal reels and three vertical rows and accepts bets between 0.20 to £20 per spin. It features 27 paylines, but since it is a pay-both-ways slot, the paylines are technically 54.

The gameplay is centred around Chi and Mow – two cute creatures (spirits) that represent fire and wind. The symbols you will land on the reels include typical Chinese objects – lotus, lanterns, jade stones, flutes, gourds, etc. There is also a wild that replaces all the other symbols bar the scatter to help you create winning combos.

Totems are places on both sides of the reel set. When a totem symbol lines up, one of the two spirits (Chi or Mow) is summoned. If you activate Chi (the red one) 1-6 wilds will be added on the reels. If you activate Mow (the blue one) you get a multiplier between x2 and x5.

Free Spins

Land 3, 4 or 5 free spins symbols on the reels to get 10, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively. You can get an unlimited number of retriggers. In addition, if Chi lands wilds for you, they remain locked in place for the duration of the free spins round. A first hit on Mow grants you a progressive multiplier that can reach x5.

Stairway to Fortune

Land 3 bonus symbols to trigger the Stairway to Fortune feature. Chi draws a random number between 1 and 6 and Mow moves the corresponding number of steps along a path of multipliers. The feature ends when Chi draws “Collect”. Your winnings are determined by the multiplier Mow holds, as well as the size of your bet.

If you make it to the Fortune Reels, you should anticipate some sweet rewards. In the best-case scenario, you will pocket 12,500 times your stake.

Bottom line

The last thing we can say about Chi is that this is a slot slated to launch just for the sake of releasing fresh content. It is apparent that ELK has gone the extra mile to develop a slot that is both entertaining and well-paying. Beware the variance, though. Chi is probably the highest volatility slot in ELK’s portfolio. May 7th, 2019 is the date when Chi will go live across all ELK casinos. We are positive that it will get a huge mass appeal.
