Dynasty is a NextGen Gaming-powered video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 20p to £40 a spin only on desktop (i.e. laptop/PC) devices, you are taken to the Ming Dynasty where power and wealth is legendary. As the Emperor, your aim is to gather the finest warriors in order to the defend the Great Wall (of China) again the Mongol hordes in order to become victorious.

The graphics are bold and striking with a strong theme – look out for the wild symbol which appears stacked on any of the 3 middle reels. The sword-wielding warrior is the most lucrative symbol on the reels as 5 of them across a payline will reward you with 5,000 times your line bet.

This game is all about the Free Games feature which can be played if you get 3 or more Emperor scatter symbols anywhere in view – you are then rewarded with 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier meaning wins are doubled. The good thing is that the feature can be re-triggered with a possible 20 free spins on offer. If you manage to get 20 free spins and get a few stacked wilds, the wins can soon mount up.

That’s about it for Dynasty as this simple game is medium variance – the theme is appealing despite the graphics and soundtrack being quite basic. There are better Chinese-themed slot games out there though with Aristocrat’s Choy Sun Doa and Play ‘N Go’s Golden Legend much better options in my opinion.

If you like the warrior element, Katana by Novomatic is a great game which, despite having basic graphics and animations, packs a heavy punch as it’s very volatile.
