Golden Beauty Theme
Gold is hugely important in Chinese culture. Since ancient times it’s been associated with good fortune and good luck, and the Chinese emperors would wear golden robes and jewellery. During the Spring Festival people buy gifts of gold and golden accessories for themselves and others, and we can see exquisite pieces of jewellery on the reels ready to dress the lustrous locks of the Golden Beauty herself.
First Impressions of Golden Beauty
This Pragmatic Play pokie finds the developers on familiar ground with this beautiful Chinese-themed game. This beautifully designed pokie is one of a long line of games from this developer that explores the mysteries and beauties of the Orient, which is enduringly popular with players. Although Golden Beauty repurposes some features from earlier pokies, the stunning conception and design make this a highly playable game.
How to Play Golden Beauty Pokies
This pokie plays out with a progressive feature that turns marked reel positions wild every tenth spin. The trick is to land the wilds in combination with high-paying symbols for big wins, but we found these payouts incredibly hard to come by.
This game uses a 75-payline engine, so there’s plenty of potential for landing combos of three or more matching symbols. Look out for the blue wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the golden pagoda - five of a kind will pay out 2.8x your line bet.
As ever in Pragmatic Play pokies, the player interface makes game setup a breeze with plenty of speed and autoplay options just a click away. Before you hit the spin button, select a stake between 0.25 and 250 credits across all 75 fixed paylines.

Golden Beauty Paytable
As you’d expect in a Chinese-themed pokie, the lucky number eight features prominently in the available payouts. There are twelve symbols on the paytable: five royals and seven theme-related symbols, including jewellery and musical instruments that pay from 0.8x for five of a kind to 2.8x for five of a kind Golden Beauty symbols.
What Is the RTP of Golden Beauty?
The RTP on offer from Golden Beauty is 96.44%, but beware - this figure represents a statistical possibility of the payout ratio available over the long term rather than a guarantee of the return to expect. Treat with caution and be aware that your own RTP can vary massively from the developer’s figure.
How to Win at Golden Beauty Pokie
Golden Beauty features an unusual progressive gameplay system that sees the reels fill with wilds after every 10 spins. This is no guarantee of a win, and we struggled to combine the wilds with lucrative high paytable symbols. It’s a similar picture when it comes to landing the free spins. They’re packed with potential but frustratingly difficult to land, which is pretty much what you’d expect from a medium-high-volatility pokie.
Golden Beauty Pokie Bonus Features
Progressive feature: This pokie plays out in 10 spin blocks. For every lotus flower that lands on the reels, the position is marked and will turn wild after the tenth spin. Free spins: Hit three or more pagoda bonus scatter symbols to unlock your choice of free spins and multipliers:
- 5 spins with 10 wilds
- 10 free spins with 7 wilds
- 15 free spins with 5 wilds
- 10 free spins with 10 wilds
- 20 free spins with 7 wilds
- 30 free spins with 5 wilds
- 15 free spins with 10 wilds
- 30 free spins with 7 wilds

During the free spins feature the wilds remain on the reels throughout, changing position at random. Three or more scatter symbols trigger an additional free spins feature which plays once the current spins have ended. You can choose a new combo of spins and multipliers, and this feature can be retriggered indefinitely.
Golden Beauty Top Win
The top win available when playing Golden Beauty is 210x your stake by packing the reels with Golden Beauty symbols. It’s a disappointingly low top prize for such a high-volatility game.

Golden Beauty Pokie Review
Pragmatic Play may be on safe ground here, but that doesn’t stop Golden Beauty being a beautifully put together pokie with enormous potential. The sounds and visuals are beautiful, but you’ll find the free spins frustratingly difficult to land - this is a medium-high-volatility pokie but one that’s well worth playing if you love this theme.
The Caishen's Gold pokie is another top-notch gold-themed game.
