iSoftBet Tells the Legend of the Four Beasts

Legend of the four beasts pokie by iSoftBet

iSoftBet continues its foray into the world of niche Asian pokies with the launch of Legend of the Four Beasts. The Four Symbols are mythological creatures appearing among Chinese constellations. They are Azure Dragon, the Vermillion Bird, the White Tiger, and the Black Tortoise. All feature heavily in the Legend of the Four Beasts pokie machine.

Legend of the Four Beasts Fundamentals

Legend of the Four Beasts hits online casinos from June 29, 2021, and should become popular in an instant. It is not the most original machine, but it is one of the better games bearing this theme thanks to its engaging and rewarding features.

The tried and trusted 5×3 layout is used for the game, a layout with 243 ways to win. Your bet sizes range from $0.25 up to $25, and those bets can be multiplied by up to 10,000x if you hit the maximum payout limit. That equates to a top prize of between $2,500 and $250,000.

iSoftBet opted for a medium-to-high volatility model, meaning there are spells where you do not see winning spins. Ensure you have a substantial bankroll to ride our the droughts.

RTP comes in at exactly 96%, so a house edge of 4%. This is about average for today’s pokies, although we would prefer to see higher. RTP increases slightly to 96.5% during the Ultra Bet bonus, however.

What Are the Legend of the Four Beasts Symbols?

The four mythological creatures mentioned above feature in Legends of the Four Beasts. They are the highest-value symbols in the game and pay between 1.6x and 10x. Lower-value symbols, made up of royals nines-through-aces and Chinese ornaments, pay between 0.4x and 0.8x. The base game’s payouts are considered low-to-moderate; we wish they were higher.

Wild symbols can land on reels 3, 4, and 5, and substitute for regular paying symbols. These wild expand one symbol position vertically and horizontally to form a cross-like wild. This, of course, leads to much better chances of winning.

At least three scatter symbols are required to trigger the bonus round. Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters awards 10,15, or 20 spins.

What Are The Game’s Features and Bonus Rounds?

There are two main features on the Legend of the Four Beasts machine. First, landing 3, 4, or 5 scatter gives you 10, 15, or 20 free spins. The free spins occur on the base game’s board but with one major change: Wilds become Golden Wilds. Golden wilds still turn into a cross to give you more chances of winning, but each one increases the multiplier by 1x for the duration of the free spins. There is not a limit to how high the multiplier reaches.

The second feature is what iSoftBet trademarked at Ultra Bet. Selecting Ultra Bet increases the RTP of Legend of the Four Beasts to 96.5%. It gives you the chance to play 50 games for 50x your current bet size. Ultra Bet is essentially an auto-play for 50-games, which spin a little faster than standard. Symbols sometimes carry stars on them, which you collect to advance through a trail on the right-hand side of your screen. Prizes up to 1,000x your stake can be won depending on how far you navigate down the trail.

Any free spins won during Ultra Bet are saved and play out automatically once your 50 games are completed.

Some jurisdictions block the Ultra Bet feature. These include our friends in the United Kingdom.


Legend of the Four Beasts is a pokie that should have you clambering for your mouse and logging into your favourite online casino. The visuals are quite stunning, and the soundtrack works perfectly with the theme.

The mathematics model is such that it never feels unfair, although we experienced a few long stretches without any meaningful winning spins. We particularly liked the free spins with their special expanding wilds. Obviously, the lure of a 10,000x payout is also strong.
