How to Play:

  • Set the bet per line by using the +/- buttons beside the Line Bet Field.
  • Choose up to 20 paylines by using the +/- buttons beside the Lines Field. You can also choose paylines by clicking on the numbers 1-20 on the sides of the reels. Please be aware that choosing a number will activate all paylines numerically below it.

Note: The Total Bet = Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

  • Press Spin or Bet Max to start the game. Spin will play the slot with the current bet and paylines. Bet Max will spin the reels with all 20 paylines activated.
  • Select Auto Play if you wish to set 10-99 spins to be played automatically. The button will change to Stop when Auto Play is active. Select Stop to exit from Auto Play.
  • Switch on Turbo Mode if you wish to skip the animations of the reels spinning for faster results.

Note: A winning combination of symbols will be highlighted on the reels after a spin. The total win will be displayed in the Win Field.

Note: All possible payouts are listed on the Paytable, which is accessed via the Info button. Line Wins = Payout x Line Bet. Scatter Wins = Payout x Total Bet.

Info Pages:

Access the Info Pages by clicking the Info button on the bottom right of the screen. You can change pages by using the arrows on the bottom right of each Info Page. Pres Back if you wish to return to the reels. The Info Pages are described below:

Paytable – shows all possible payouts for winning combinations. In addition, the Paytable displays the positions of the 20 paylines.

Emperor’s Treasure Bonus – explains the rules and awarding of the Emperor’s Treasure Bonus, which leads to Free Games.


Paylines are the directions that matching symbols must follow from left to right across the reels to pay out as Line Wins. Only active paylines (the ones that you bet on) can record Line Wins.

Please be aware of the difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount staked on each individual payline. The Total Bet is the amount staked on all active paylines.

About Payouts:

All payout information can be found on the Paytable screen. Line Win payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.

Only the highest value Line Win is paid out on each payline. Multiple Line Wins can be paid on different paylines.

A Line Win starts on Reel 1, moving left to right across the reels in a chain of symbols.

Wild Symbol:

Wild Symbols can substitute for all other standard symbols to make the best possible winning combination on a payline. Wild Symbols can substitute for the Bonus or Scatter Symbols.

A group of Wild Symbols can form their own Line Win with a separate payout award.

Scatter Symbol:

Scatter Symbols do not need to fall on paylines to be active in the game. A payout (x Total Bet) is awarded if three or more Scatter Symbols fall on any position on the reels. This payout is added to any Line Win payout from the spin.

Bonus Symbol:

The Bonus Symbol appears on Reels 1 and 5 only. It does not have any payout value. Instead, you will be awarded the Emperor’s Treasure Bonus if the Bonus Symbols land anywhere on Reels 1 and 5 simultaneously.

Emperor’s Treasure Bonus:

Press Click To Start to begin the Emperor’s Treasure Bonus. A new screen will be launched. You will be prompted to choose one of six Lanterns to reveal the number of Free Games. You will then be prompted to choose one of six Treasure Chests to reveal the Multiplier for Free Games.

Note: You can be awarded a maximum of 16 Free Games and a x 6 Multiplier.

Free Games will begin after you open the Treasure Chest and reveal the Multiplier.

Free Games:

Free Games will play through automatically. The remaining Free Games and Multiplier are shown on the top left of the screen. Payouts from Free Games will be multiplied by the Multiplier awarded in the Emperor’s Treasure Bonus.

A random number of extra Free Games will be awarded if the Bonus Symbols land on Reel 1 and 5 again. The Multiplier will not change if this occurs.

Please note:

  • Free Games are played at the same Line Bet and number of paylines as the triggering spin.
  • The total win from Free Games is displayed on the top right of the screen.

When all Free Games have been played through, a results screen will appear detailing the total win from the feature.

Press Continue to return to the main game.
