Large barks with red banners and sails sail beyond the Mekong into the oceans of the world. Microgaming has launched Emperor of the Sea, a slot machine from the Far East where the sun rises. It’s about a Chinese conqueror and his ships leaving the Asian coast to discover new islands and treasures to put at the feet of their emperor. But there is danger. Heavy storms, sea monsters and not enough provisions can make the crew difficult. They must rely on their lucky charms, ancient Chinese symbols, which hopefully bring luck with their presence. And hopefully also luck for the player who is waiting in this slot machine so some treasures that want to be won. Lifebelt strapped and off you go!
The Emperor of the Sea slot machine from Microgaming has five reels and 88 paylines. Then 88 is our lucky number from now on! The slot machine is graphically convincing and represents an Asian sea drawn in the style of Chinese artists. The infinite blue and a cloudless sky to show seafarers the way. The symbols on the reels are Chinese lucky symbols, which of course should not only benefit the sailors, but above all the players. Because all symbols are particularly auspicious in money matters. There is a pot full of coins, the emperor’s ships, Koi carp, a dragon, a turtle standing on a mountain of coins, a golden hat, the Emperor of the sea logo and a deck of cards. The letters on the deck have several small decorations with other lucky symbols. This can only work well!
The bet starts at 0,88€ and can be increased up to 44€. Pleasant is the autoplay function, which can be set to a certain number, but can also be set to run until you click on the stop button. In the background there is a golden sun on the horizon, which sparkles with the golden winnings.
bonuses and winnings
There are some interesting bonuses and winnings in Emperor of the Sea, let’s have a look. The wild symbol is the Emperor of the Sea logo and can replace all symbols except the scatter symbol. The scatter symbol is the golden hat that triggers eight free spins when three or more appear on the reels. Another feature that can appear are the Rolling Reels and Growing Wilds. Rolling Reels can pay out multiple winnings, while a fixed Wild symbol can “grow” and trigger multiple Wild Spins. The lower symbols that follow are Dragon, Coin Pot, Turtle, Koi and Ship. The taillight is the deck of cards. It has the lowest value.
All in all, Emperor of the Sea is a nice pastime and a very well designed slot machine. We had hoped for a bit more in terms of extras and features and missed a bonus game. On the positive side was the Rolling Reels feature, which could trigger some good winnings. We recommend trying the slot machine, as the number of paylines is high and you should try your luck.
