The game will come in a standard Megaways format with 6 reels and columns containing 2 to 7 symbols. The default RTP is set to 96% so it will be safe to assume that the slot will be highly volatile. The grid will hold 117649 paylines, and the bets range will vary between 0.20 and 20 credits.
Jin Ji Bao XI Megaways is no different from other Asian themed slots and therefore features many of the same symbols and legendary creatures from the country’s stories as the other titles.
The game uses a combination of dark red and lots of gold as the dominant colors and offers you to form winning combinations with symbols that show you, for the lower paying ones, the traditional six Royals (values or families of playing cards) and ranging from 9 to Ace; and Koi fish, turtles, tigers, Phoenixes or even dragons as stronger symbols. You will also find icons with the wild and a gold coin as scatter.
In the Free Spins round, everytime a coin appears, its amount is collected and icreased for the next spin.
The features on the Jin Ji Bao XI Megaways slot machine
Help will come via special wild cards, symbols available on reels 2 to 5, acting as substitutes and contributing to the formation of all wins.
There will also be coin scatters that you will get on the reels and that will allow you to trigger the free spins when there are at least 4 of them present on your screen. The choice is yours, as to which variant of free spins will be triggered. The difference is the number of spins offered and the premium symbol that will replace all other high value positions.
During these free spins, you can use one type of premium symbol, scatters, wild cards and all the low value Royals. Land extra coins here to get instant prizes and 3 extra spins for 3 extra symbols.

Our review of the Jin Ji Bao XI Megaways slot from SG Digital
Jin Ji Bao XI Megaways may look like any other slot aimed at the Chinese audience, but its volatility is also not as high as what we get from other slots that use the same engine. It also has fewer features than the others, and there are no multipliers or tumbling reels to help you, but it’s still a game worth trying out to form your own opinion; knowing that in addition the title is offered in a free demo version on our site, just like any other game of chance like roulette, etc. A game that deserves at least a trial spin and some attention if you are curious and like the Asian atmosphere.
Yes, there is a whole series of Jin Ji Bao Xi slots, all launched by Scientific Games.
