An Action Filled Asian Themed Pokie with Regular Progressive Jackpot Wins
Golden Peach is a Quick-Fire Jackpots pokie from Aristocrat. Unlike many other jackpot systems, which might be won randomly or within a bonus feature, the jackpots here can and will be won during the base game. Land any five in a row win and a jackpot might be yours. The game follows the popular Asian theme, with the title ‘Golden Peach’ symbol acting as the wild. Joining the peach are a series of distinctive Asian style symbols, including a princess, a peacock, a scroll and a lantern.
Reasons to Give ‘Golden Peach’ a Spin
This Aristocrat design is an all-action pokie, with big wins only ever a spin away. Look out for the following features:
Throughout the base game you will regularly see small ‘flame’ symbols joining the regular symbols on reel five. The more you bet, the more frequent these flames will become (at the highest levels these flames will be constant on reel five). These flames are important when it comes to landing the Quick-Fire Jackpots.
There are four Quick-Fire Jackpots in all – the mini, the minor, the major and the grand. To win a jackpot you’ll need to hit any five in a row win, alongside the small flame symbol on reel 5. If you look below the jackpot amounts on the upper screen, you’ll see exactly how you’ll win each one. For example, to win the Grand Jackpot, you’ll need a five in a row win with one of the five leading symbols (all symbols apart from the playing cards), with no wild substitutions and a flame symbol. At the other end of the scale, to win the mini jackpot, you can use any number of wilds and any symbols to win.
As well as the progressive jackpots, you can also the free spins bonus feature. This is activated by landing the symbol showing a scenic village three times or more across any of the five reels. Doing so will award you with 10 free spins. During these free spins a random symbol is selected, and all instances of that symbol will turn into wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4. Reel five will also be turned completely wild too. This makes those 5 in a row wins much more frequent, although with the wilds in play, you’ll only win the smaller of the jackpots in this bonus feature.
The free spins can be retriggered too, with 5 more spins added to your existing total.
Golden Peach plays out on a 5×4 reel configuration, giving opportunity to offer a total of 50 win-lines and therefore 50 opportunities to win a jackpot on each spin. The game pays from left to right and offers a good mix of Asian themed symbols at the top end of the pay table. The lower end of the pay scale is filled with the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Golden Peach is one of the more eye-catching pokies on the casino floor. The reels are set against the backdrop of a green, space-like setting, with clusters of shining stars all around the reels. These reels have a purple backing and contain a series of very colourful and well-designed symbols. Both the bonus symbols and the wild golden peach are oversized on the reels, so you really can’t miss either. The soundtrack to the game is mainly generic, although an Oriental style gong resounds every time you hit a bonus symbol.
Aristocrat have to be commended for designing a high-speed, all-action and fun pokie in Golden Peach. With those regular peach wilds and 50 win-lines, you’re never far from a pay-out, while the free spins feature is sure to make things even more interesting. However, the real focus of the game is on those progressive Jackpots, landed by flame-added five in a row wins. Line those symbols up right and you could be on the end of a ‘Grand’ session.
