Online Slot Based On Chinese Epic


Most players from European and English speaking countries are familiar with stories from Greek mythology. Therefore they can empathise with slot games like Jason and Prince of Olympus. The Orient is as rich in mythology, but this remains largely unknown outside. Most Oriental themed slots have general iconography of cherry bosoms, lanterns, dragons and the like. But there is one video slot on the Microgaming instant play platform titled 108 Heroes that is based on a popular Chinese legend. The legend appears in the epic Water Margin, which is considered as one of the four great classic novels from Chinese literature. The 108 Stars of Destiny were demonic overlords who had been banished by a Taoist sage. After completing their penance they were reborn as 108 heroes who united for the cause of justice. So there is a bit of Marvel superhero mythology in this as well. The slot game is live at Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas and All Slots.

The setting is ornate and the background music is epic. Five of the 108 heroes are the high paying symbols on the reels. The slot game has vibrant animations when these heroes appear in winning combinations. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons A, K and Q. The game logo is the wild symbol and it awards the top line payouts. A combination of five symbols pays 15,000 times the line bet. The second highest payout is only 500 times the line bet. 108 Heroes is a high variance slot game suited for players who are willing to take risks in the quest for big wins.

108 Heroes online slot has two special symbols. The treasure chest is the bonus symbol. Three or more of these symbols appearing in an active payline from left to right activate the King’s Treasure bonus game. There is a story to this bonus game on the second screen. The king is transferring his ill-gotten gold to his vaults. The heroes besiege the king’s convoy and distribute the wealth to more deserving people. The second screen displays 12 treasure chests and you have to pick up to five of them depending on the number of bonus symbols in the trigger. Each pick awards a bonus payout. The Scatter logo awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The highest scatter payout is 400 coins. Three or more scatter symbols award 10 free spins with tripled payouts. The free spins can be retriggered.
