The return to player (RTP) percentage is 96.15% for this online slot game.


This online slot game is very oriental indeed. The text featured on your screen is written in a Chinese style and the paylines are shown as lanterns. As you play you can view the Great Wall of China and dusty hot skies in the background. Symbols featured on your reels include 10, J, Q, K and A, ancient ships, gems, the emperor himself (Hongwu Emperor), an empress (Empress Xu) and a palace. Experience tranquil sounds as you press the reels.

This is a very basic online game that only offers wilds, scatters and multipliers, however, it does pay both ways; right to left and left to right – meaning you can boost your chances of winning on every spin.
