Chi Introduction

In Chinese culture, ‘chi’, is believed to be a sort of ‘energy’, a force which gives life. ELK Studios was inspired by the concept of the Chi to create the Chi slot, a Chinese themed slot with a detailed theme and themed features. In Chi, you will meet some interesting furry spirits which represent different spirits. These are Chi the fire spirit and Mow the wind spirit. Together, they will guide you on your journey full of special features and bonuses, including wilds, sticky wilds, multipliers, and even progressive multipliers. 

Chi is a beautifully-designed slot which is played on a unique setup of three reels and five rows, and 27 paylines which pay both ways! This means that there is a total of 54 paylines to play on. Chi is a high volatility game which also comes with a free spins feature and a Stairway to Fortune bonus game. 

Chi Game Features

Besides placing a traditional bet, Chi also comes with four betting strategies that you can choose from if you wish to, described below.  

Optimizer bet strategy

Your bet level will change automatically, adapting to the selected percentage (1%, 2%, 5%, or 10%) of your balance. 

Leveller bet strategy

This raises your bet by two levels after five consecutive losses. A repetition increases the bet by two more levels, and it resets after a win. 

Booster bet strategy

This raises your bet by one level after a loss, until reaching four levels above base bet. You can choose your initial bet and you’ll see the next four levels that the bet can go up to after a loss. It also resets after a win. 

Jumper bet strategy

This strategy raises your bet by one level after every winning round, until reaching the next four levels above your chosen base bet. The strategy is reset after a loss. 

In all four bet strategies, you can choose the minimum bet to start with. The higher levels that your bet can be raised to will be highlighted, so you’ll know that maximum amount that can be automatically bet in your chosen bet strategy. 

Chi comes with three very special symbols: the bonus symbol represented by a fish making up the yin and yang symbol, the wild symbol, and the free spins symbol. The wild symbol can substitute any symbol on the reels except for the bonus and the free spins symbols.  

On both sides of the reels, you will also notice a special cylinder with three rows that spin when the reels spin. If the symbols of the wind sign or the fire sign line up, Chi or Mow will appear! 


Whenever Chi appears next to the reels, he will throw one to six wilds onto the reels. 


If Mow, the spirit of the wind, appears next to the reels, he will award a multiplier ranging from 2x to 5x.

Chi Free Spins and bonuses

Three or more free spins symbols landing anywhere on the reels will trigger the free spins feature. For three free spins symbols, you win 10 free spins, for four symbols you will win 15, and for five free spins symbols, you trigger up to 20 free spins! If you get another three free spins symbols appearing on the reels during the free spins, you trigger additional free spins!  

During the free spins, if Chi appears, all the wilds he adds to the reels will be sticky wilds. If Mow appears during this round, he will award a 2x progressive multiplier which increases by 1x with every hit.  

Stairway to Fortune Bonus

Three bonus symbols trigger the Stairway to Fortune bonus. The first part of the bonus game consists of 17 increasing multipliers which range from 2x to 200x. The fire spirit Chi will draw a random number between one and six to be given to the wind spirit, Mow. Mow will then move that number of steps towards the Fortune Reels above. If the Collect is drawn, the multiplier value held by Mow will be collected and the bonus game ends there.  

If the collected multiplier is 200x, you move on to the second stage in the game. In the second stage, the Fortune Reels will consist of a tower of five horizontal reels, with multipliers starting from 10x and going up to a big maximum of 1,500x! One spin on each reel will be awarded and each hit is added to the multiplier total.  

The Stairway Fortune bonus game will end if there are no remaining spins on the Fortune Reels, or if a Collect is drawn.

Chi Payouts

There are four high paying symbols in Chi and four low paying ones. The highest paying symbol is the lotus flower, worth between 2x and 10x your bet. The red lantern is next with prizes ranging from 1.5x to 6x your bet, followed by the golden symbol which pays prizes ranging from 1x your bet to 5x, and the green gems which pay at least 1x your bet and up to 3x.  

The lowest paying symbols are the four Chinese symbols, the colours of which match the colours of the high paying symbols. These pay varying prizes ranging from a minimum of 0.25x your bet to a maximum bet multiplier of 2.5x your bet.

Chi Graphics and Sound

The graphics, artwork, and animations in Chi are definitely some of the most striking and attractive out there. The stunning scenery, soothing colours, and gorgeous illustrations will immediately impress anyone who appreciates a well-designed game, and the soundtrack simply ties it all together and creates a wonderful atmosphere. You can hear the sounds of chirping birds, gongs, wind chimes, and other instruments coming together to create a harmonious effect. Next to the reels, you can find several floating icons which are the bet settings, the paytable and rules of the game, and the Autoplay button. 

Chi Conclusion

Chi is a unique slot in many ways: the graphics are original and ethereal, the Stairway to Fortune bonus game is very detailed and fun to play, and the paylines pay both ways here!  Join Chi and Mow as you make your way to the Fortune Reels to discover great wonders in this fantastical landscape!

About the Provider

ELK Studios is a software company founded in 2012, based in Stockholm, Sweden. They focus their attention on developing mobile casino games and they’re all about quality over quantity. They aim to release perfectly-designed quality games rather than a massive portfolio of average slots.  

Besides a passion for mobile games, they focus a lot on beautiful artwork for their games as well, boasting crisp graphics and amazing artwork. Being a “mobile first” developer, they require strong communication between the artists and developers on the team in order to get the best out of their assets.  

Their maths model is what really defines their games. They work with statistical modelling, cloud-based computing and databases to develop, adjust, and verify their game models. While their games are available at a large variety of online casinos, all casinos using ELK software must undergo a random fairness and performance testing by RNG as part of the company’s security policy. 

In 2017, their hard work paid off when Wild Toro was awarded “Game of the Year” at the EGR Operators Award, a very prestigious award to win!

You have to play some of their games yourself to really experience the amazing results from this developer. Check out a wide range from their portfolio here at, including Ho Ho Towers, Wild Toro and Poltava Flames of War
