Imperial Palace is an ornately designed, Chinese-themed slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Played using a straightforward 5 reel, 20 payline game engine, it comes with stacked wilds that can land on multiple reels as well as a free spins feature. Play, on all devices, from between 20p and £500 per spin.
Flanked by pillars and trees filled with pink cherry blossom, the reels have a traditional Asian feel. The lower value playing cards are daubed calligraphy style and are joined by flowers, mystical birds, a Ming pot, a guzheng (musical instrument) and the entrance to the Imperial Palace.
On each spin, look out for the artist’s fortune brush which can sweep up and down single or multiple reels and turn them wild. Fill the reels with 5 stacked wilds and you’ll pocket a 1,000 times your stake payout.
Imperial Palace also comes with a Free Spins feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land the Princess free spins symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. Pick from the golden masks to reveal whether you’ll receive 8, 11 or 13 free spins.
The artist can again work his magic during the free spins by adding multiple stacked wilds to the reels. Better still is that each stacked wild comes with a multiplier that can double, treble, quadruple or even quintuple your payout.
Imperial Palace follows the formula on show in many slots we’ve seen from Red Tiger Gaming. The design is rather good – the visuals are clear and crisp and very nicely drawn. The traditional Chinese style backing track complements the on-screen action nicely.
The range of features on offer here is limited – the free spins are very, very difficult to trigger. The multipliers can make it worth the wait though. Hitting much more regularly is the magic brush which delivers stacked wilds in the base game on a very regular basis. They can hit big though.
We managed to win over 140 times our stake after landing 3 stacked wilds and 2 reels full of palaces. We’d put the variance in the medium to high range.
Imperial Palace isn’t the most innovative slot you’ll see – it’s a perfectly solid effort though combining quality design with some fast paced action. Both the stacked wilds and the free spins offer plenty of winning potential. If you enjoy Asian themed slots, then this Imperial Palace is worth a visit. I also recommend you try some of the other games from Red Tiger Gaming with God of Wealth worth playing.
