Pokies with an Asian theme are all the rage at both land-based and online casinos right now. Imperial Wealth is another fine slot title to add into the mix. It features eye-catching traditional Chinese symbols and game play to match. On the reels, the golden dragon is the standout symbol as the wild, and is joined by symbols such as gold ingots, koi carp and bags of gold coins.
If you like a pokie where the action is fast from the start, Imperial Wealth is the game for you. Nudging reels in lucky frames make for a change from the regular pokie features. Here are the ways this medium variance game could bring you wealth:
Throughout the game you’ll find a series of adjacent symbols with a frame around the outside. This is due to the Action Stacked Symbols format, where all of the framed symbols will then be filled by the same randomly chosen symbol. This symbol can be any in the game apart from the wild. With Action Stacked Symbols you can easily line up full stacks of the same symbol, ensuring that big wins are always possible.
Things get interesting when a series of gold-framed symbols all hit the reels at the same time. With frames on three or more reels, all of those reels will then expand to ensure frames become stacked on the whole of that reel. The three (or more) stacks will then all transform into a further randomly chosen matching symbol. Knowing the symbols appearing on the other reels already, you’ll want the transformation to be in line with those symbols, leading to a big win.
During the Lucky Frame feature, as well as all of the usual symbols that can be picked, you’ll also find the wild dragon can feature, making for a real money-spinning spin. In addition, a new symbol appears showing a red scroll featuring a golden inscription, acting as the bonus symbol (see below).
Land 3, 4 or 5 full reels of the red scroll in the Lucky Frame feature and you’ll win yourself 8, 18 or an incredible 88 free spins respectively. During these free spins, one of the reels will be chosen at random to be filled with a frame. With one guaranteed stacked frame, this makes landing the Lucky Frame feature that much easier. This can lead to retriggers, as the bonus symbol can be chosen at random during the feature.
Imperial Wealth is a five-reel pokie featuring 30 win-lines that pay from left to right. Each spin comes at the cost of 45 credits – 30 credits for the win-lines and an additional 15 credits for the wide-ranging bonus features.
The highest paying symbol in the game is the dragon wild, which pays 500 coins for the maximum five in a row, as well as substituting for any other symbol apart from the bonus scatter. The gold ingot pays 250 coins, while the koi carp are worth 200 coins. Red and gold symbols including a money bag and a cushion each pay 150 coins. Alongside the themed symbols you’ll find the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, which pay between 60 and 100 coins as a top prize.
The backdrop to Imperial Wealth shows a stunning sky scene, with branches playing host to colourful orange and pink petals. Chinese Lanterns light up the sky, while the glow of the sun gives the whole scene an orange colouring. The sun hints through at the top of the pokie. The reels themselves have a purple backing, with the symbols bringing a rich mix of red and gold into play.
With those Action Stacked Symbols in play, any spin on Imperial Wealth can be a big one. The Lucky Frame feature only adds excitement. Line up those frames and then look on to see which new symbol is revealed on three stacks or more – will you win big? Enter the free spins bonus feature and wins become even easier as at least one stack is guaranteed to be covered with a Lucky Frame.
