Chinese lanterns and fierce glowing dragons come together in this Asian-themed video slot from game developer Konami. Bet limits start at $0.45, which pays for all the paylines.
Imperial Wealth Online Slot’s Layout
This game features a common video slot layout with 5 reels and 30 paylines. The symbols are drawn from Chinese culture, and when they appear in bunches via the popular “Action Stacked Symbols” feature, big wins are to be expected. The most valuable symbol is the glorious Chinese dragon, which can return up to 500 times your bet on each payline.
Other icons in Imperial Wealth include a whimsical golden fish symbol, the playing card ranks from 9 to Ace, and a couple of additional Asian-influenced symbols that are hard to characterize. All I know is that you want them all lined up, whether you can identify them or not!
An Innovative Bonus Feature
The main bonus feature of this game is quite an innovation, despite its humdrum name of “Lucky Frames”. Allow me to explain with some screenshots.
Each reel on the slot includes empty golden frames around some spots. Before each spin, a symbol is randomly chosen to fill every one of the golden frames. For example, in this spin, the symbol “9” fills every golden frame. I drew white circles around them to emphasize the frames.
Most of the symbols are eligible to be selected to fill the frames. Here are the rules about that:
The exciting part of this feature happens when you end up with golden frames showing on at least 3 of the 5 reels, like in the example screenshot above.
Several things now happen at once…
- Any reel that shows a golden frame in any position is nudged so that the entire reel is now filled with the frames.
- Any reel that shows a golden dragon wild symbol in any position is nudged so that the entire reel is now filled with dragons
- A new random symbol is selected that replaces all the golden frame symbols. Now any symbol is allowed, including the scatter pay symbol, which can also award 8, 18, or 88 free spins.
What this means in practice is that a seemingly minor spin like the one I pictured above can turn into a monster win. Let’s see what happened on my spin…
In my case, a minor 84 cent win involving “9” symbols has been transformed into a $26.50 win with 4 reels filled with dragons. Not bad!
How did that happen? First, the 2nd, 3rd and 5th reels were nudged down to fill the entire reel with golden frames. Then the wild dragons on reel 1 were nudged down to fill the reel. Finally, a random symbol was picked to replace the 9s in the golden frames, and that symbol was… you guessed it… the dragon wild!
This game can deliver surprises around every corner and that makes it really fun to play.
