Asian Attraction Slot
If you hadn’t been told in advance that the Asian Attraction slot was a Novomatic game you would hardly suspect it when you opened it. Aside from a few familiar sound effects and the game controls, this is much more like one of the more popular Asian themed slots produced by High 5 Games and IGT such as Golden Peony or Golden Goddess. Like those titles Asian beauties are the big draw and we are sure you will be attracted to their rewards.
It’s a big compliment to Novomatic to compare this new slot to those games and not without reason, this may only be a 5×3 reel video slot, but it’s really attractive! Not only that but so many of the terrible sound effects associated with Novomatic games are gone, replaced by bespoke audio and animation worthy of the best game developers. They may not be at the level of BetSoft and NetEnt just yet, but Asian attraction truly deserves its name.
Asian slot fans will rejoice as this game is chock full of classic imagery and, as the lotus blossom scatter grants free games, there are bonus features to look forward to as well!
Theme & Icons
It might be a little unfair to say that Novomatic mainly produces basic games, after all, both Wonder World and Zenia: Queen of War are recent titles from them that are very visually impressive. Asian Attraction seems to be another slot which looks to leave behind the old fruit machines they are known for and branch out in the video slots arena with a little more feeling.
It’s a good attempt too, from the hand stitched playing card icons to the light blues and golds of the silk backdrop, this plays right into the hearts of Asian slots fans everywhere. Speaking of hearts, you’ll be mindful that yours isn’t stolen by the Asian beauties who make up the games high pay symbols. There are four in total and the full combinations offer between x400 and x1000 which is not to be considered trifling.
The low pay icons are the old playing card symbols but the way they are rendered allows them to fit into the theme. With 200x – 300x on offer, you also can’t really consider them that weak in terms of their pay-outs. We are very happy that the Lotus Blossom scatter has its own pay-out but that is offset by the slightly weak wild which replaces all symbols except for the scatter – but in the end is just a fixed wild.
Gameplay & Features
The 20 pay-lines on the game are fixed, so with a wide bet range your strategy is mostly confined to bankroll management. The RTP isn’t listed yet but expect it to be decent with this being a Novomatic slot. One mild complaint is that Asian Attraction does feel quite low variance and the closeness of the values for the symbols indicates that might be the case. Of course, only long term play will indicate how true that is.
The most obvious way to big wins in the new Asian Attraction slot is via the free spins feature. Not only does the scatter symbol offer 80, 800 or a massive 2000x bet instant win, it also grants 10 free games. These values are for 3,4 or 5 scatters respectively. For the duration of the spins, an upgrade feature is automatically activated. If the lady in the bronze outfit appears on the middle position in reel 3, she transforms into a silver lady. The silver lady turns to gold and the gold turns to a diamond lady. Each of these upgrades nets you more free games. There’s also an additional re-trigger If a Scatter symbol appears on the middle position of reel 3, giving you 3 more free spins!
