The wild symbol features the steps that lead up to the Emperor’s palace. However, it will substitute for just two regular symbols, the Emperor and his consort, when helping to form winning combinations.
There are three scatter symbols, a case, a scroll and a large jewel.
The Great Ming Empire does not have many paylines, only five. However, the paylines are bidirectional. This means that you can form winning combinations starting on the leftmost reel and the rightmost. This effectively doubles the number of paylines without increasing the amount you need to bet per spin.
If you land three or more matching scatter symbols on consecutive reels then The Treasure Room Bonus begins. It is a picking game that takes place in a room with eight items of treasure displayed on pedestals. You need to pick three of them to reveal cash prizes that will be proportional to your bet. If you triggered the game with four scatter symbols then you win a 3x multiplier and if you triggered it with five scatter symbols then you win a 10x multiplier.
The Great Ming Empire has a top payout of 2,000x for landing five wild symbols along a payline. The Emperor can payout up to 1,000x, his consort can payout up to 500x and the junk can payout up to 250x. The A, K, Q and J symbols can payout up to 200x, 150x, 100x and 50x respectively. It is worth noting that all of the symbols in this slot will payout when just two of them land along a payline.
