Huangdi - The Yellow Emperor Gameplay

Although this is a newer Microgaming slot it is certainly set up very much like an older style game. The 5x3 reels and 25 paylines are somewhat standard nowadays, but where the game does shine is in terms of presentation with all the higher value symbols in particular, plus the backdrop and the sound all being top notch and fitting the theme perfectly.

The slit is a medium variance game and this does need to be noted as it means you need to have a sensible approach to bet size here. Bet too much for your bankroll and if you hit the slot when it is playing more tightly then you can find that this is a game that takes a Samurai sword to your bankroll and chops it into Dim Sum sized pieces.

However, when played at an appropriate level and for a decent length of time, this is a very enjoyable slot. It is a simple game, which means that beginner players can certainly get a lot of enjoyment from it without having to delve too deeply into slot strategy and the bonus games are great fun and easy to follow (though not so easy to trigger).
