Legacy of Dynasties Features
It’s yet another Play’n Go ‘book of’ style slot, but this time the setting is that of a place where you’d find a wizened Chinese man stroking his long, wispy beard as he sips tea and reveals ancient mysteries. The action takes place on a 5x3 game area with all pay symbols nicely displayed just above—I’ll explain why in a mo’.
You win by landing winning combinations on the game’s 10 paylines, starting from the leftmost reel, as has been tradition since the reign of the Shang dynasty. Jack to Ace are the low-pay symbols. If you land a 5-of-a-kind, you’ll pocket up to 5x the bet. The high pays come in the form of a frog, a peacock, a pander, a tiger, a lady and then a man. If 5 of these land along a payline, you can win up to 100x the bet! Wilds can land on any reel and they substitute for any and all pay symbols. Also, if you land a payline full of Wilds, 200x the bet will be your reward.
The Bonus Action
The bar displaying the 10 normal pay symbols above the game area is the Expanding Symbol bar. Throughout the game, pay symbols can be randomly assigned the role of Expanding symbol. If 3 or more of these allotted symbols land, they expand to cover the entire reel, thereby increasing your chances of landing big, fat winning combos.
To gain access to the Bonus round, you need Scatter symbols to land on reels 1, 3 and 5. If that happens, you first pass to the Free Spin Wheel, where you can win 3 to 20 free spins. Also, up to 10 normal pay symbols will be randomly allotted the role of Expanding symbols. During the round, if 2 more Scatter symbols land, they trigger the Dynasty Spins, which, to be honest, are nothing more than further free spins within the free spins round. But I’m not complaining, as it seemed like quite a frequent occurrence while I was playing.
