Asian inspired themes are really frequent, although each author brings their own twist to it. It is so popular because of its beauty and elegance that can leave people breathless.
True that it doesn't give you much space to work with when it comes to the art design since almost everything from the culture was implemented in movies, books, plays, and video slot games, there are those creators who somehow manage to keep it fresh and intrigue us regardless.
BetoXin software provider managed just that by release that carries the name of "Golden Era".
The background has a rich red color to it with carvings of a lotus flower. It looks almost like a drapery. On the left, there is an elongated lantern that dangles in mid-air and has a similar hue with the setting.
Reels themselves look like a scroll that has a gold frame on upper and lower edges.
Symbols, although some of them may be found in other installations that are based on Chinese culture, are pleasing to look at. Special character wild is represented as a typical Chinese lantern, while the bonus or the scatter, looks like a traditional jade coin.
Other signs, besides those who are we all already familiar with like A. K, Q, J, 10 and 9 are…
…blue firecrackers, a sycee or yunbao that is dipped in gold and was used as a currency in Ancient China, and a panda whose eyes even the hardest of hearts can't resist melting.
Betting Options and Functions
"Golden Era" has in total 20 winning lines. Its layout has 3 rows and 5 feels like majorities of games do.
Highest amount in this video slot game that can be placed as a bet is €20 while the lowest is €0.20.
The biggest payout, if we are not counting the wild, would be the fireworks followed by the golden sycee while the smallest payout can be received from 10 and 9.
Autoplay is also included which is always a great feature to have especially if it allows a player to modify the number of rotations.
Although not so many, features in this game should not be disregarded so easily.
A wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols if we exclude the scatter one however, that is not its only function! If it lands on reels number 2, 3, 4 and 5 the wild will...
...float to the left on each spin! That gives a bigger chance of getting a win and will keep on happening until those characters exit the reels.
If 3 or more scatters appear on any of the reels they will…
...award with 5 additional rotations! The best part is that it can be retriggered unlimitedly!
