iGaming software provider transports players to 16th century China with new original game based on Buddhist monk’s legendary journey
25th January 2019 – Pariplay Ltd., a gaming technology company serving iGaming operators, land-based casinos and lotteries, has released Xi You Ji, an original online video slot, ahead of exhibiting at ICE London. Boasting powerful, evocative graphics and a range of special player features, Xi You Ji immerses players in the centuries-old legendary Chinese novel renowned in English as Journey to the West.
Pariplay’s Xi You Ji five-reel, 25-line slot allows players to follow in the footsteps of Xuanzang, a Tang dynasty Buddhist monk who explored the western regions of Asia in the 16th century. With authentic Chinese music in the background and matching symbols, players join a slots quest across Asia to find sacred scrolls.
A three-time scroll symbol triggers the ‘Sacred Journey’ bonus whereby players can collect multipliers and Xuanzang’s three disciples – Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujing – for the chance to win the big prize of a 1,000x multiplier.
Additionally, players can enjoy the ‘Lantern Bonus’ game by filling them up to be awarded sticky wilds, a chance at 10, 15 or 20 free spins, cash prizes and an up-to 12x instant prize multiplier, as well as the chance to spin the ‘Jackpot wheel’. Players spin the wheel and win one of the five available jackpots worth between 50x and 1,000x multipliers.
Xi You Ji’s offers a lucrative 95.95% return-to-player (RTP) rate and is designed for a global audience with over 20 different languages available, including simplified Chinese, Thai, German and Spanish as well as English. To further optimise player enjoyment, the game was developed in HTML5, allowing for gameplay on mobile phones (portrait and landscape modes) as well all other devices.
Certified by gambling regulators in the UK, Isle of Man and Malta, the slot is the latest addition to Pariplay’s growing portfolio of over 100 online casino games. Alongside its original and branded slot titles, the company also provides a selection of online scratch cards, bingo games and instant win titles.
Pariplay will be showcasing Xi You Ji and its entire games portfolio at this year’s ICE London, held at ExCeL London, UK, between 5th to 7th February 2019. Delegates attending the conference can demo the games at Pariplay’s booth, N8-445.
Richard Mintz, Commercial and Marketing Director at Pariplay, said: “In developing the gaming features for this title, we made sure to include elements that allow for extra winning potential to maximise player engagement. Xi You Ji recounts one of four of the greatest novels in Chinese literature, so it was important for us to accurately pay homage to the timeless story with incredible visuals that will keep customers returning to the game time and time again.”
