Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor slot from Microgaming

Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor slot from Microgaming
Another ‘badass’ Asian-themed slot by Microgaming: Huangdi -The Yellow Emperor. This impressive historical character is said to be the tough religious figure, uncompromising, and intimidating initiator of Chinese culture. He allegedly lived to be 113 years old. So, it was about time that somebody dedicates a slot to this fearless ruler. Microgaming did just that in 2017, releasing the heroic Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor slot. So, Huangdi rules the game, while all the other symbols are more or less secondary. Except for the Golden Dragon, which initiates the Free Spins. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

In them, the Yellow Emperor shows its true generosity. Suspenseful Asian music lilts in the background as you spin the reels of this Medium-High Volatility game, RTP of 96.5% and hoping for expanding high symbols to land, which is the main feature here. Any high symbol appearing stacked on the first reel will make all matching symbols on the remaining reels expand as well, as long as they are part of a winning combination.

Personal testers’ opinion

We did have good times testing this generous slot (with a theoretical RTP of 96.5%). We kept looking out for those extending high-value symbols, which landed regularly. In the base game, the hit probability is good - around 40 out of 100 spins. The Free Spins are launched about every 130th spin (statistically, 0.77%), which is not entirely to our liking. Moreover, only 21% of the entire prize pool is designated for the payouts of the bonus round. However, during our testing, the maximum prize reached was 175x the total bet. Nowhere near the promised 60 000 coins in one spin during the bonus round. All in all, we reckon that Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor slot has an inadequately low potential for a medium-high variance action, offering less than heroic encounter on average in the Free Spins (we calculated our average figure was just 31x the total bet). So despite the lavish RTP, we can only leave neutral advice for real money sessions and negative recommendations to the bonus hunters, as the slot scored only 3.50 (out of 10) wagering points.
