Microgaming has delighted us in recent months with a number of excellent slots such as Lost Vegas, Dragonz and Secret Romance. Only we found Tarzan a bit less ourselves. Now Microgaming had released a very strong title in mid-2016, called Ariana. This slot looked very nice and had some very nice features, such as expanding symbols and free spins.
And as soon as something is successful at Microgaming, the first thought is always: let's milk it as much as possible with cloning. And so it happened with Ariane. New graphics, a completely different theme, some new sounds and voila: a new slot machine: Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor.
Although Huangdi is simply a clone of Ariana with exactly the same paytable, the same bonus and the exact same game mechanism, this is a very enjoyable slot machine. Where Microgaming was too lazy to come up with something original, it must be said that Huangdi looks fantastic. The graphics are razor-sharp, beautifully designed and perfectly follow the theme: the Chinese Emperor Huangdi.
Time for a little history lesson: for those who don't know (it doesn't matter, we also had to look it up), Huangdi is a Chinese emperor with the nickname "The Yellow Emperor". In addition to leading the country of China, this dear gentleman was responsible for coming up with many things that we still use and enjoy in today's world.
Did you know that Huangdi has introduced the calendar as we now use it worldwide? Or that he invented football? Whether he invented the slot machine remains to be seen. But the fact is that it was a smart and important boss. Anyway, enough history. What we really want to know is: how does this slot machine work?
How does the Huangdi slot machine work?
Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor is an online slot game from Microgaming with 5 reels and 25 paylines. You play Huangdi on your desktop or on your mobile device. The minimum bet is 0.25 euros and the maximum bet is 125 euros per spin.
The Asian theme is beautifully worked out – Huangdi itself looks impressive and in the background you see an old Chinese village.
The symbols also fit perfectly with the theme: we see Chinese instruments, swords, medicine boxes and dragons. These are the high paying symbols. Slightly lower on the hierarchy are the map symbols (A, K, Q, J and 10), which are also drawn in Chinese style.
The Golden Dragon is the Wild and replaces all symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol. The scatter symbol activates the free spins bonus.
Expanding Symbol Bonus
On high roll 1 the high symbols are stacked. If a stacked symbol covers the entire roll 1, the same symbols on successive rollers will also expand. This can cause huge payouts, especially if you know how to spin 4 or 5 expanding symbols.
The Free Spins Bonus
Three or more scatters activate the free spins bonus and give a cash prize. With five scatters you win 100x your total bet, so that can tap well. You get 15 free spins, with the wild symbol also counting as a stacked symbol on reel 1 and therefore expanding. . This can be a huge advantage because this way large winning combinations can occur more often. Free spins can be retriggered for 15 extra free spins, which happens regularly.
Our verdict: a very successful slot machine
Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor is a medium to high variance online slot machine with a payout percentage of around 96.2%. The expanding symbol feature and the free spins bonus can both result in huge payouts.
The game is beautifully designed and the music and sounds are of a high level. A big enough for Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor.
Play Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor at Guts with 100% bonus up to 100 euros and 50 free spins Starburst.
