It’s time to step into a portal to Ancient China in this new offering by Yolo Play. Taking players back all the way to second millennium BC and into the era of the Shang Dynasty, where this slot got its name.

This is a time of legends and myth and none is more legendary than the Dragon Emperor, full of wisdom and divine power. Chinese lanterns appear to celebrate the dynasty with a selection of different kinds of free spins.

Live the legend in this historical-themed slot and enjoy the multiple and engaging special features.


On the banks of the Yellow River in China, there is a relaxing and beautiful scene of cherries in bloom. This is where the game takes place.

The production values here are slick and the game looks sharp and crisp in widescreen on desktop and mobile.

Taking a tour around the reels…

…we have the standard card numbers the low paying symbols here stylized to resemble Chinese ideograms. Going one step up, there’s a selection of Asian fruits like mangosteen and persimmon.

 Finally, there is a fish figurine and a priceless Ming vase as the two highest paying icons.

Yolo Play has taken great care to make every aspect of the offering fit the Chinese theme.

Betting Options and Functions

This is a five-reel and three-row slot with 20 fixed paylines. Punters can choose to stake 20 cents as the minimum bet or a full 100 euros as the maximum one.

But there are unusual aspects here:

The payline system is quite different than in most games. The first ten pay left to right but the other ten pay from right to left. And...

…three of a kind in the center of a payline will also pay out.

Special Features

There have been many other games about Ancient China so one way to stand out is to have some great special features.

And Yolo Play has delivered.

There is not one, not two, but three different kinds of extra spin on offer here. The kind players get is determined by a pick game that occurs after three lantern scatter symbols appear on reels 1,3, and 5.

The Spawn Wild feature, represented with a dragon fruit will see wilds appear on reels 2 and 4. When at least one appears it will clone itself until it forms a winning combination.

Next is the Sticky Wild represented by a lotus flower. When the lotus appears anywhere on the reels it will remain in the same position for the duration of the remaining free spins.

Finally, the Sticky Respin features the Dragon Emperor himself as an expanding Wild that triggers a respin every time it appears. If a new wild appears it will respin again up to a maximum of four times.

Our Take

While slots featuring Chinese motifs have always been common, this offering does enough to differentiate itself with its great and varied features and appealing graphical design. Do not skip this one.
