Head back in time to ancient China where this Microgaming Huangdi mobile slot brings the historic battle of Zhoulu to life.
“Huangdi The Yellow Emperor video slot” is the full title of this 25 payline machine, and celebrates this iconic warrior’s win over the Nine-Li Tribe.
Not familiar with your ancient Chinese history? Don’t worry too much about it, just keep looking out for the main man Huangdi. He is the most profitable symbol and comes stacked across all five reels. The bigger wins of the game will involve him.
And we’re not just saying that because we played it, but because that’s exactly how the Ariana slot works, and this casino game follows the same mechanics.
That said, though this mobile game boasts decent Microgaming slot games animations, you’ll barely care as the Huangdi slot wilds, expanding symbols, and free spins grab your attention away from what is simply another Asian theme.
The first thing you’ll notice is that reel 1 is the only reel where you get stacked symbols. But, thankfully, this is just a trigger; cover reel 1 in one symbol, and that symbol will then expand all others of that symbol on the other four reels… if you had at least one of those symbols on the reels.
What does this mean for you? Well, it means the potential for bigger wins. You’ll be able to trigger multiple, 3, 4 and 5 of a kind wins more regularly, and cover more paylines.
It’s impressive looking when you manage to trigger it, but unless you manage to get a stack of the Huangdi symbol, rarely pays out as much as you’d expect from such a striking slot feature.
Find 3, 4 or 5 of the golden dragon scatter symbols and you’ll not only be rewarded with a 2x, 10x or 100x your bet win, but you’ll also trigger the 15 free spins.
The main difference between the free spins and the base game is that the wild symbol, which is represented by the Huangdi slot logo, can now appear as stacked on reel 1.
Meaning the potential to get stacks of wilds all across the 5 reels. However, mostly we got some decent 50x your total bet wins, with a far more conservative average of around 5x – 10x your bet more likely.
And that’s really because this Yellow Emperor slot game doesn’t have the top wins you might find in harder hitting Microgaming games like Life Of Riches, which boasts a top 120,000 cash win.
Instead this Huangdi slot for mobile and online provide easier game play, with a top win of 30,000 cash, or 240 times your bet.
Good for beginners, but most of us will eventually move on to something with a little more striking power, like the Leonidas King of Spartan game for example.
Still, some of us are looking to hone our battle skills with small risk-free victories, and Huangdi can certainly show you the way.

Wilds: The Huangdi slot logo is the wilds symbol and substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter symbol. It also comes stacked on reel 1 during the free spins.
Expanding Symbols: Find a full reel of the same high paying symbol on reel 1, and if that same symbols is sitting across the other reels they will expand to create full expanded reels of symbols... if a winning line can be made that is.
So if you get a stack of swords on reel 1, but you only have a sword symbol on reel 3 and 5, you wont get the feature as expanding that symbol won't lead to a win.
You would need to get a stack of swords on reel 1, then at least one sword symbol on reel 2 and 3. Obviously, the hope is to expand the stacked symbols to cover all reels.
Free Spins: Find 3, 4, or 5 of the golden scatters and you'll trigger 15 free games. Here the wild symbol comes stacked on reel 1, leading to potential stacked wilds across the other reels.
You can also re-trigger them by finding 3 or more scatters during them. It's where you'll get your biggest wins of the game.
Scatters: The Golden Dragon symbol is the scatter and pays up to 100x for finding 5 of them.
Microgaming have gone back in time with this mobile Huangdi slot game as you battle it out on the five reels in search of action and wins.
With a starting bet of 0.25, ranging up to a max 125.00 per spin, this casino slot game lends itself to all types of players, and with multiple betting levels, gives you a chance to try out a good slot strategy.
A medium variance game that you will have to budget for if you want to trigger the free spins, as they can take a good 100 or so to hit in our experience.
Overall though, this online Huangdi slot machine is a game with decent graphics, game play, and frequent wins, that will entertain, if not always excite.
