The Great Ming Empire is a Playtech-powered slot game with 5 reels and 5 paylines. Playable from 5p to £500 a spin across desktop devices, the game takes you back to ancient China. It’s based on the Great Ming Empire which was the ruling dynasty of China for 276 years from 1368 to 1644.

As a result, the game benefits from rich imperial imagery as it’s set in a Ming palace. Symbols on the reels include the emperor himself, a ship and the palace – the latter is the wild symbol and substitutes for the male emperor (Hongwu Emperor) and female empress (Empress Xu). It also pays out 2,000 times your line bet if you manage to get 5 on a payline.

One thing to note about The Great Ming Empire is that lines pay both ways – this seriously enhances your winning potential. In terms of features, there is only one – the Treasure Room Bonus feature. This is played when you get 3 or more consecutive scatters of the same kind (i.e. on reels 1, 2 and 3).

In this feature, you pick 3 items for cash prizes – then a multiplier will be applied to your winnings depending on how many scatters you got to trigger the feature. If you triggered it with 3 scatters, there is no multiplier applied. If you had 4, all wins will be trebled. Now, if you got 5, your wins will be subject to a huge 10x multiplier!

Unfortunately, there is no free spins feature which is rather disappointing – The Great Ming Empire is a simple slot game but benefits from medium to high variance. I’ve had plenty of big wins in the base game of over 300 times my stake.

The Great Ming Empire is not the best Playtech game produced by any stretch of the imagination despite the intriguing theme and decent volatility aspect. In all honestly, I would recommend you try other Playtech titles like the under-rated Sultan’s Gold or the blockbuster The Avengers.
