Taiwan Black Bear is a 5 x 4 reel slot by KA Gaming released on 20th December 2017, it has has 50 paylines. The game’s RTP is 96%, and the number of reels and symbols makes the slot variance high. It has wilds, scatters, and free games bonuses to trigger.

The Taiwan Black Bear is officially known as Formosan Black Bear. Also called white-throated bear, it is a sub-species of the Asiatic Black bear. They are only found in Taiwan, and they are endangered because of the destruction of their habitats.


The 5×4 grid sits on a backdrop of a mountain, where the Formosan black bears live. It depicts the bear’s natural habitat and the hunters that caused its degradation and decline in population.

The high-value symbols are:

  • Black bears
  • Deer
  • Gold fish
  • Honey
  • Fruits
  • Bees

The slot game also has four low-value symbols that pay between $5 and $500 at the highest bet. These symbols are:

  • Hunter
  • House
  • Coconut
  • Bear cave


Here are the prizes you can win at the highest bet of $250 per round.

Number of Appearance in a Pay Line SYMBOLS
Black Bears Deer Gold Fish Honey Fruits Bees
5 4,000 2,000 1,500 1,250 750 750
4 2,000 1,250 1,000 750 500 400
3 500 400 300 175 125 125

All pays are in currency, not in multiplier values. All the 50 lines are active at any given spin, so all the bet sizes already count for all these lines. The betting window is between $0.50 and $250.

To win, you need three matching symbols on any of the 50 paylines. A matching symbol, or a combo, is made of three symbols on different reels. The reels must be side by side, and the combo must start on the first reel.

The online slot machine only pays from left to right. The exception is the scatter symbol, which pays in any position.


Here are the features to look forward to in the game.

  • Wild – the wild is the single Formosan black bear. It substitutes for all symbols to help you make a winning combo. It cannot substitute for the scatter symbol. During the free spins, you may land a Super Wild in any of the last three reels.
  • Scatter – the scatter symbol is the bear paw. You have to land at least three of it anywhere to win free games. It also pays cash.

The prizes are:

  • 5x – 25 free games plus $750
  • 4x – 20 free games plus $500
  • 3x – 15 free games plus $250

You can retrigger free spins during the free spins round, but only once.

  • Bonus – there is a random bonus called Running Bear Bonus. If this gets activated, you will play a mini-game where you have to help the bear run away from the bees. You will win coins in this round. The cash prize is not known, and it depends on the size of your bet. Higher bets that triggered this bonus round also pay higher cash prizes.


We will rate this slot with 6.4 out of 10 points. The game has a wild and scatter, plus free spins. These features meet our basic expectations from a 5-reel slot.

The bonus is a good addition, but nothing to look forward to because the wins are relative on your bet size.

Overall, this game is highly recommended for beginners. The game mechanics and win structure are straightforward, so it is best for punters who want to get started playing simple slots.
