Playtech has recently released a great new addition to its Chinese-themed video slot games, The Great Ming Empire. As is clear from the name of the game, the slot is set way back in the time of the famous Ming Dynasty that ruled over China for almost 300 years until the middle of the seventeenth century.

About The Great Ming Empire Slot

The video slot game is played on five reels, and three rows with just five paylines. Even though the game has only five paylines, Playtech designed the slot so that you can choose whether to play one or more lines per spin. It is possible to wager from as little as 0.01 credits per spin up to a possible 100 credits per spin. This makes the game suitable for both newbies and high rollers.

In The Great Ming Empire slot, wins can be paid both ways. This means that even though there are only five paylines, there are more winning opportunities available than you might have thought at first glance.

When five of the same symbols are seen across the reels, the win is only paid out in one direction, and not twice. When you get the emperor symbol five times across the reels, the payout can reach up to 1,000 coins.

The wild symbol is a little different in this slot. Whereas wilds can usually substitute for almost all of the symbols, this wild symbol can only be used to substitute for the emperor or his consort when helping to form a winning combination. A five wild symbol winning combination pays out 2,000 coins.

Win More Cash in the Scatter Bonus Round

The scatter symbol is the next important symbol to look out for. There are three different scatter symbols including a Ming vase, a huge crystal ball, and some rolled up scrolls. To go to the scatter Treasure Room Bonus round, you will need to see three of the same scatters on the reels. Once three similar scatters have appeared, you will be taken to the Treasure Bonus Room where you get to pick three of the eight items found in the room for an extra cash prize.
