Peking Luck is a highly volatile video slot from Pragmatic Play that has a chance to win 180,000 times. It is played on a 5 reel, 3 row layout.
Peking Luck is a video slot from Pragmatic Play that was released in August 2018. The theme is Asian and is set in a Chinese opera. It has 3 rows, 5 reels and 25 lines. There is a very interesting free spins feature in this slot, but we will go into more detail about that in this review. It has an RTP of 96.50% and a maximum win of an impressive 180,000x. That would be pretty crazy to get that maximum win, don’t you think?
This video slot has a fancy looking wild symbol that multiplies winning combinations they are part of with a 2x multiplier. Although this is an older video slot that Pragmatic Play released, it meets today’s standards when it comes to excitement, gameplay and design. It is a beautiful slot game, and the potential wins are insane.
Peking Luck has a very high volatility, which means that it has a higher chance of making big wins in a shorter time than slot games with lower volatility. The design of the symbols looks like something you would typically find at an Asian celebration, and they are very nicely designed. Let’s take a look at what they can pay out.
- Mask – pays 30 times your bet if you land five on a payline.
- Dragon – pays 20 times your bet if you land five on a payline
- Drum – pays 16 times your bet if you land five on a payline
- Sun Feather – pays 12 times your bet if you land five on a payline
- Cymbal – pays 10 times your bet if you land five on a payline
- Ace – pays 8 times your bet if you land five on a payline
- King – pays 6 times your bet if you land five on a payline
- Queen – pays 5 times your bet if you land five on a payline
- Jack, Ten and Nine – pays 4 times your bet if you land five on a payline
The Wild Symbol
The very well and nicely designed wild symbols are represented by a girl holding a sun feather and wearing a tiara and a pink flower behind her ear. This wild symbol holds a secret. This secret is the 2x multiplier that is added to all wins that include a wild. It substitutes for all symbols except the free spins symbols.
Free Spins Scatter
The free spins scatter symbol can appear on any reel and carries a large medal on the picture card with the text Free Spins. When three or more scatter symbols land anywhere, not only are the free spins triggered, but they also pay out accordingly:
- Five scatters – pays 250 times your bet if you land five anywhere on the screen.
- Four scatters – pays 10 times your bet if you land four anywhere on the screen
- Three scatters – pays 3 times your bet if you land three anywhere on the screen
- Two scatters – pays 1 times your bet if you land two anywhere on the screen
Free Spins Feature
To trigger the free spins rounds, you must land three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the screen. The scatters can appear at any time on any reel and surprise you with a free spins round. If you are so lucky to land the scatters and get into the free spins rounds, there are two different stages that you need to go through before the free spins start.
In the first stage, you get to pick 1 of 6 objects that will reveal a random number of free spins. Up to a total of 38 free spins can be awarded. In the second phase, you get to pick again. This time the multiplier is selected. Up to 18x multiplier can be awarded. The combination of 38 free spins and the 18x multiplier will leave you in excitement and thrill.
In addition, all line wins that contain at least one substituting wild will multiply the win by 2x. The feature can be retriggered if you land three more scatters. The feature can be retriggered any number of times.
Stakes and winnings
Betting in Beijing is a matter of luck. The lowest bet you can make is €0.25, and if you want to try your luck, you can bet up to €125. The game has a high volatility, which means that it pays out less frequently, but has a higher chance of winning big in a shorter time than video slots with lower volatility.
The maximum win is 180,000 times and requires some luck. Maybe the dragon will be your lucky symbol?

Peking Luck is a nice and exciting video slot. With the possibility of winning 180,000x and with a pretty high RTP of 96.50%, it is quite possible to get some really good wins. The design and feel of the video slot are nice and smooth.
