Huangdi or, in literal translation of the Chinese, “the Yellow Emperor”, is a figure who straddles myth and the dawn of ancient history. We may place him along a prism which includes western figures like King Arthur and Ragnar Lothbrok: Huangdi has probably slightly more basis in fact than the Round Table Knights but far less proof of existence than the Viking forebear.
Real or not, since the emperor’s theorized reign of over 4,500 years ago, Huangdi has ascended to full-on mythological and religious status in China – but makes for kind of an odd theme for a slots game marketed to Westerners…
Wellllllllllllll, most of the higher-paying symbols are objects rendered rather abstractly, so your guess is as good as ours.
Huangdi is here of course – no law against crafting images of gods in Chinese-influenced religions, one supposes – and damn is he studly. Perhaps it’s no surprise that kicking ass in the 2600s BCE can really build up the muscles, this dude is a serious pretty boy by modern standards. Graced with the face of an angel, Huangdi was…
The creators/designers of the Huangdi slot went to the default on the wild symbol, using the game logo for this purpose.
And on the low-paying end of the scale … the A, K, Q, J, 10 symbols. Now we’ve played a lot of games and we’ve seen these symbols done up in more ways than we can count. The inclusion of the poker-run symbols in the Ancient China-themed Huangdi The Yellow Emperor slots game really made us lol, though. Really, guys? Ancient China is in your artistic wheelhouse and you serve up playing card icons? Come on…
Huangdi the Yellow Emperor is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot. Wagers run from 1¢ to $2 per payline per spin for a range of 25¢ to $50 when covering all paylines. And you want to cover all the paylines. Always.
Is Huangdi The Yellow Emperor a low-variance or high-variance slots game?
The Huangdi slots game is a low-variance game with lotsa smaller payouts doled out. This of course symbolizes the generosity of Huangdi to his people, despite encroaching barbarian hordes and sometimes limited resources. Or something.
In the Huangdi the Yellow Emperor slot, the payouts generally befit a low-variance game. Five wilds on an active payline score 250x the payline bet, while five Huangdis (which is a fantastic plural, if we say [write?] so ourselves) win 200x.
You bet your Confucius! As in a handful of Microgaming slots, this game features expanding symbols. All symbols in the base game are stacked – including wilds. When any symbol fills reel 1, all other like symbols expand to fill their own reels and hopefully thus pay out generously. In the free spins bonus round, all wilds expand as well.
