The Ming Imperial Guard slot tells the story of the legendary Chinese dynasty. It has five reels with 25 paylines. The main character of the game is the Imperial Guardsman. The video slot was released in 2017 and immediately attracted players with its two bonus features: a bonus round and free spins.
The number of lines in the Ming Imperial Guard video slot is fixed. This means that before starting the game, the user has only one parameter they need to adjust, the total bet amount, which can equal 25, 125, 250, 625, and 2,500 credits. The preferred bet amount is selected in the menu that opens with the New Bet button. To start a single spin, players should click on the round button in the center of the control panel. By pressing and holding this button, the user will initiate a series of automatic spins. The Max Bet key activates the highest cost of one spin round. Payouts are awarded for combinations of 2 to 5 identical symbols. The amount of payouts for such combinations is specified in a special table that can be summoned by the button in the lower right corner of the screen.
The slot’s wild symbol is the picture of a Chinese man against a green backdrop. It does not form paid combinations but can substitute for the majority of pictures in them. The character in a red national costume brings the largest payouts, multiplying the linear bet by 20, 80, 200, and 1000 times. Multipliers for crossed sabers are 40, 150, and 500. The picture of a Chinese man wearing a green robe pays with multipliers of 10, 40, 100, and 500, and the sword increases the bet by 20, 100, and 250. The rest of the pictures have the following multipliers:
The picture of a disc with hieroglyphs is the slot’s scatter symbol. It increases the total bet by 3, 5, and 8 times.
Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters will give the player 15, 25, and 35 free spins, respectively. The slot has a special symbol that provides access to the bonus round. It looks like a scroll that says Bonus on it. The Bonus symbol has linear multipliers of 15, 80, and 150. The bonus round feature is activated after the player gets four of such icons on adjacent reels. During the bonus game, users are expected to shoot at the attacking invaders. Each defeated enemy will bring instant prize payouts.
The RTP of the Ming Imperial Guard video slot is 96.02%. The provider does not share information about the slot’s volatility. The two most profitable features of the game are its free spins and the bonus round. The higher the bet amount at the time of their launch, the more generous the payouts.
