In Xing Guardian, you’ll find two randomly added bonus features. The first of these is the ‘Rise of the Dragon’ feature which can appear before any spin. This feature will see one or more reels turned completely wild, adding to other wilds potentially on the reels. Wild reels can turn a losing spin into a winning one, or a winning one into a mega win – look out for this feature.
This second randomly added feature takes place when the Xing Guardian flies onto the reels. A frame will now be locked around 2, 3, 5 or all 5 of the reels. Each of the selected reels will now contain the same combination of the three symbols.
If you’re lucky enough that all 5 reels are selected, you’ll be guaranteed a five-in-a-row win on each of the three rows. While any combination of matching reels is likely to be fruitful, the best-case scenario will see all of the locked reels filled with stacked wild symbols, ensuring some brilliant wins.
During the base game, the ‘Xing Guardian Locked Reels’ appears randomly. However, during the free games, these locked reels will be in play on every single spin. You’ll receive 10 free spins in total, while the spins can be retriggered, awarding an additional five free spins onto your total. This feature is activated by landing three or more Yin and Yang scatter symbols.
