Pariplay Releases Xi You Ji PokieTia Winter | 30 January 2019
It’s a new year, and it’s always exciting to see what developers will come up with next. Pokies are just about as good as it gets when talking interesting themes and characters, and online casino games developer Pariplay has certainly not wasted any time in releasing their first title for the year off the development-block.
Xi You Ji is a 5 reel, 25-payline pokie. The setting is China and the main character is a monk named Xuanzang. An avid explorer, the monkey king figure transports players to China as he embarks on an exploration quest.
Superb Theme And Winning Features
Not only does the game include realistic images of China, but traditional Chinese music has also been included in the plot. Players have become increasingly more discerning regarding the true depiction of various cultures, and it’s obvious that many players value a well-developed theme.
But that’s not to say that theme is the only thing that Xi You Ji has got going on. Many special features are part of the parcel, including sticky wilds, multipliers and free spins. What’s more, the pokie presents players with a 95.95% Return To Player yield; a rate that is quite competitive when considering some other titles that have seen the light of late.
The traditions and music of China; especially Ancient China; are popular amongst players and more and more developers are trying to incorporate these into their offerings. They do not always hit the nail on its head, and we have seen everything from cultures getting mixed up to recurring themes being done to death. Xi You Ji is a breath of fresh air in this regard.
Following The Process
Pariplay’s Richard Mintz explained a bit about what had gone into the development process, and its immediately obvious that his developer had done its homework! Mintz pointed out that Xi You Ji depicts one of the four most prominent works of Chinese literature, and that it was therefore a priority from Day 1 to get it just right.
Xi You Ji is officially live and the game can be played at all online and mobile casinos featuring Pariplay content
