Playtech has a bunch of Asian-themed video slots available for punters, and I have had the unfortunate pleasure of looking at most of them. I say unfortunate because many of the games are very similar, playing on historical Chinese themes and offering next to no bonus features for players to be entertained with. Unfortunately, The Great Ming Empire slot falls into many of these pitfalls and becomes a bland and forgettable foray that you may not want to waste your time with.
The Great Ming Empire is a 5 reel, 5 payline video slot that is based outside the Great Wall of China, and the reels are set against a paper background. The game's symbols include standard slot symbols (Jack, Queen, King, Ace), a ship, a queen, Ming himself, a dragon statue covering a scroll, a dragon statue covering an orb, and a dragon statue covering a vase. There are also temple steps, which serve as the game's wild symbol. Feature wise, the game also includes scatters and free spins. Other than that, the game is quite bland. The game does have a posted return to player percentage of 96.2%, which is pretty decent for an online slot machine.
The game is pretty bland, and I have to say that I tired of it very quickly. This game looks dated, lacks compelling features, and is just not that great of a choice. There are way better slots from Playtech out there, and there are also way better Chinese slots, for that matter.
If you're looking for a game to play, I recommend you look elsewhere. The Great Ming Empire is more like a "Meh Emplire". There is nothing here that makes the game stand out, and you owe it to yourself to not waste your time with something like this.
