Chinese imperial history is always something that seems to be a fascination of online casino game designers, as there are so many games out there that it's impossible to run into a casino not offering them in some aspect. Playtech has a few games in this category, and they've added to it with the Yu Huang Da Di slot, which takes you an imperial palace from several hundred years ago.
Yu Huang Da Di is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that is based in China and features a number of different symbols associated with the country. The symbols include a blue, red, white, and green dial that's decorated with different astrological symbols, as well as an older man, a warrior, a queen, and a king. The game also has a title symbol that's a wild symbol, a gold dragon that's a scatter, and a flying lantern that serves as a bonus symbol.
The game's bonus features include wild symbols, free spins, scatters, and the Emperor's Treasure Bonus, which has you selecting flying lanterns in order to set the free spins round up.
Having played this game for a bit, I can tell you that it is a lot of fun to play, and has some staying power, although I can say that I'm probably not going to be itching to play it much in the future. The game has a relaxed atmosphere and I did notice that time passed quickly while playing, but I just never really got too excited for the slot like I do with some others.
With that being said, there will be a large market for this game and I think that Yu Huang Da Di is already proving to be popular among Playtech customers in the short time that it's been in the wild.
