The screen is a soft red with piles of gold coins covering the base of the screen and golden serpents on either side of the reels.

The icons here are related to Chinese culture with a golden lion head, Chinese lantern, gold coins, lion statue, red ribbon, golden egg, lucky number 8, Chinese lettering, a frog and a fish. The gold colouration pervades the screen and features on all the symbols to give a feeling of richness and opulence.
Before beginning your Chinese adventure, you need to decide on your stake. There are 8 paylines in this game and these are all fixed into place to give you the maximum number of ways to win each spin.

Lucky Number 8 Scatter
Watch out for the lucky number 8 symbol as this is the scatter icon in the game and can boost your rewards with lucrative payouts. Spinning 4 of these anywhere on the reels awards 2x your bet, 5 symbols pays x8 your bet, 6 symbols awards 38x your bet, 7 symbols pays x188 your bet, 8 symbols pays x888 your bet and spinning all 9 of these lucky symbols to cover the reels pays a huge x8,888x your bet!
The Scatter Holds the Only Key to This Oriental Adventure
Ji Xiang 8 is a simple game with just 3 reels giving the slot a 3×3 grid layout, however there are some decent payouts to be enjoyed here, especially from the lucrative scatter symbol. This lucky number 8 is certainly the luckiest icon in the game and if you spin all 9 symbols together you could enjoy a glorious reward.
In general, however, this game feels rather too simple to offer entertainment over a long gaming session. The scatter symbol offers the only feature here and with no bonus game or free spins to enjoy, enjoyment in the Chinese theme is only short-lasting. Players who manage to hit the lucky 8s can experience rich oriental rewards but others may feel their lovely red lantern deflates too soon.
