We’re going to be entirely honest with you. When we first heard Chinese themed slot with a 3x3 playing field, we let off an involuntary groan. Both of these have been done to death, and usually serve as a great way to get us to nap. So we were more than pleasantly surprised when Pragmatic Play has created a magnificent game using these elements! With exciting special features, a decent number of paylines and pretty visuals, this release has captured our attention. But can it keep it in the long run?
The awesome graphics mostly come from the fantastic background image. They capture the beauty of China without looking generic, which seems to be a lost art form to many developers. Treasure Horse’s background image is honestly something we’d hang up on our wall. The beautiful nature sprawling as far as the eye can see is a great view on its own. But add that Chinese building off to the side, and the view is that much better! Pragmatic Play even have some minor animations to make this slot feel alive.
You play this game on a 3x3 board with 18 paylines, which pay left to right only. There’s only one special feature available: a free spins round! Three golden horses earn you eight free spins, during which a fourth reel is added to the screen. This fourth reel houses only multipliers, which are applied to any winning combination you earn during free spins. And the best part? You can win more extra turns while already playing them, extending them beyond the initial eight.
Hats off to Pragmatic Play, they really know how to design a UI. You’ll never have to open the paytable to be able to play this release. Everything is cleanly labelled and easy to use and figure out. Players can change their total bet in one of two ways. They can either press the plus and minus keys until they reach their wanted wager. Or they can adjust their stake by tweaking the coin value and coins per payline. No matter which method you use, you can bet between GBP 0.18 and GBP 90 on each spin.
Treasure Horse has a high volatility, owing to the way it’s structured. With only one special feature and such a small playing field, it was really the only option they could go with that wouldn’t feel incredibly boring. By giving it a high variance, the developers were able to give it a fantastic jackpot, worth 6000x your total stake! Sure, you’ll have to get super lucky with the free spins and the multiplier to get it, but it is well worth the trouble. This slot’s RTP is 96.52%, which is above the current industry average.
Three Scatter symbols in any position will earn you eight free spins. Once the extra turns are active, any additional Scatter that appears will add one more free spin. There’s no upper limit on how many extra turns you can give yourself by just picking up more Scatters. So fingers crossed you get plenty! During free spins, a special fourth reel appears. On said fourth reel, only multiplier can appear, and they range from 2x to 6x. On the first three reels, all icons have a chance of appearing fully stacked.
Our expectations going into this game weren’t that high. That, in turn, allowed it to not only exceed our expectation, but to do in a spectacular fashion, too. The graphics were top notch, especially the background image. With 18 paylines, wins are frequent enough so you’re not bored to tears. And with those awesome free spins and multipliers, it all but guaranteed it’ll have a loyal fanbase. This might be one of the best Pragmatic Play releases we’ve ever played! So if it looks even remotely interesting to you, we recommend giving it a go.
