Witnessing a Chinese opera is no doubt a glorious thing and perhaps one day we’ll actually do it in real life – until then though we’ll make do with this intricately designed online slot from Play N Go called Imperial Opera; keep reading to find out how it all works.
Imperial Opera is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; those ornate reels are draped in red finery and lit by glowing lanterns. The backdrop is the huge wooden structure which hosts this performance.
The three higher value symbols are all male characters from the opera while the lower values are the standard 10, J, Q, K and A. Any symbol can appear as a 3×3 icon at any time.
The wild is the female character and she will replace all others to form winning matches except for the giant, 3×3 gong scatter symbol.
There are four mini-features which can occur at any time during the base game:
- Harmony – two or three adjacent reels lock together to display matching symbols.
- Crescendo – one or two reels will become completely wild.
- Showcase – one symbol is selected to appear stacked (also active during free spins).
This can only triggered from within the Harmony feature if a 3×3 gong scatter symbol lands completely in view; you’ll receive ten free spins but these can be retriggered by landing the large scatter again.
During this feature reels two, three and four are always locked together with matching symbols.
Imperial Opera has a lovely design and a great soundtrack which brings to mind (probably) famous performances of this legendary enterprise; we don’t know what the narrative is but there are bonus features aplenty and an RTP of 94.17%.
