1421 Voyages of Zheng He is a slot that’s based on the real life naval commander Admiral Zheng He who explored the seas in the 15th century.
And developer Spielo have immortalised this great sailor in the graphics of this game, with both an appearance on the reels as a high value symbol and also with his ship silhouetted on the frame.
The graphics may not be spectacular but the colours are vivid, with the gold edged frame nestling on the deep blue seas. Set sail under the red sky and disappear into the distant horizon for the chance to win some of the prizes on offer in the paytable.
Completing the scene is the authentic Oriental music in the background, providing an overall experience that you can become utterly immersed in.
Auspicious Number 8
The number 8 is considered to be very lucky in Chinese culture, and that’s why eagle-eyed players will have noticed that it comes up very regularly in this game.
Add up the numbers in the title, check out the number of paylines plus the min and max bets and you’ll find the number 8 appears very regularly. The question is, will it bring you luck?
The reels are slightly larger than the standard configuration, set out in a 5×4 layout, with the aforementioned 88 paylines. If you’re not too worried about attracting the maximum amount of good luck, you can opt to reduce the number in play – but only in multiples of 10, making sure the end digit always ends in 8 at least!
With a 1.00 minimum coin value on each line, the lowest amount you can spin the reels for while playing on all paylines is 88.00. The max coin value is 10.00, providing a max bet of 880.00.
The volatility of this game is fairly low and you may well experience regular, smaller wins. The overall theoretical RTP is between 92.10 and 96.04%, a little on the stingy side.
Fill Your Treasure Chest
This may not be a pirate ship, but you’re out to win some serious cash – and that means topping up your treasure chest with all the goodies you can grab.
In this game there’s lots of bonus features so it’s possible to get extra wins as well as lining up the basic symbols on the reels.
If you land three bonus scatter symbols, you’ll have the Player Decision Feature to play with. Here you’ll have to decide whether you want to choose the Cup feature or a variety of free spins and multipliers. This decision is entirely up to you, with no right and wrong answer. Make the Admiral proud and go for the most adventurous option, if you dare.
The Cup feature doesn’t offer a guaranteed win but there is the chance at a great prize. Everyone knows the classic game of hiding a ball under a cup, and then shuffling three separate cups to try and keep track – and that’s exactly what you’ll be doing here. Try to keep track of the golden ball as the cups move around on screen. If you get it right you’ll receive a handsome multiplier but if you get it wrong, you’ll leave with nothing.
If you play the free spins, these can be retriggered up to 20 times during play, giving a maximum of 400 free spins.
1421 Voyages of Zheng He by Spielo is an online video slot where you’ll be playing with beautiful symbols such as jade figurines and golden artefacts. There’s plenty of features without the game being complicated, which leaves it as accessible to players with all levels of experience.
You won’t find the highest RTP around, but this is a low variance slot with lots of small wins which can help to keep you motivated to play. Plus, if you hit the bonus, you could enjoy a nice payout.
