Blazing X Asia Slot Review

Blazing X Asia is another Chinese-themed slot to come of the Asian conveyor belt at Bally Technologies. Played using a 5 reel, 5 row, 40 payline game engine, it comes with wilds that expand to fill the whole of the middle reel when they hit. They also deliver a multiplier boost which is active for 3 spins. Land more wilds and the multipliers increase, up to a maximum of 25x. There’s also a bonus round that awards 10 free spins. Play from between 24p and £180 per spin.

Classic Chinese design

The Blazing X Asia online slot has the classic Chinese look. The reels are set against a deep red backdrop and watched over by a pair of golden dragons. There you’ll find A to J letters alongside a fan, a money pouch and a butterfly. The best paying symbol is the coin which awards 1.5 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline. Not a huge amount we grant you. You can boost those awards thanks to the multipliers.

Expanding wilds with multipliers of up to 25x

Land a wild symbol on the middle reel and it expands to fill the whole of the reel. It also brings a multiplier into play. This will be active for up to 3 spins. If you land another wild on reel 3 on 1 of those spins, it expands as per usual as well as increasing the multiplier.

The multiplier jumps are 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x and 25x. You can keep tab of how many spins you have left with the multiplier active via the meter to the right of the reels. This is known as the Blazing X Multiplier feature.

Free Spins with multipliers

Land 3 of the roaring dragon scatter on the same spin to activate the Free Spins feature. On offer here are 10 free spins as well as a payout of double your stake (boosted if a multiplier is live). Any multipliers currently active in the base game are carried through to the free spins. Multipliers don’t reset during the free spins but can expand if the wilds fall nicely – this makes it easier to achieve the maximum 25x multiplier.

Simple but playable Chinese action

Bally has kept things simple with the Blazing X Asia slot. The gameplay centres on the expanding wilds and the multipliers they bring with them. The key to success is getting on a roll with these. Despite its name, Blazing X Asia isn’t particularly volatile – you can win up to 1,500 times your stake on each spin or free spin though.

If you want gameplay that offers something a little different, then it’s worth a look though. Alternatively, Bally’s Monopoly Heights slot is a better choice.
