Despite being aimed at Asian players, Ancients of Korea is not focused on China. As its name suggests, the theme is Korea and it is based on the legends and heroes of the peninsula.
iSoftBet plans the release of the game for the 10th of August 2020. It is unique with its theme and very close to the look and appearance of actual heroes of Korean history. You will also see books, boats and other items on the reels that create an authentic atmosphere.
The game uses 6 reels and 4 rows (a 6×4 grid) with 24 symbols and 4096 ways to win. The top payout is 7.50 times the stake, which is 150 coins for each of the winning ways. You can place wagers in the range of 0.20 to 20 credits per spin and 20 coins for the 4096 win ways active. The jackpot per spin is not revealed from the provider yet.
The features include multiplier wilds of x2 and x3, which appear during free spins. You can trigger between 8 and 50 free games and retrigger 5 to 50 extra rounds. During them, besides from multiplier wilds, you can win from the premiums that combine with wilds. These can play as scatters and no longer need to appear on consecutive reels from left to right to get you wins. They pay in any direction. From activating and retriggering free spins you can win up to 100 rounds.
As you would expect, there are queens, kings, priests and warriors as the main characters on the reels. All of them including the low-value symbols are painted. They look authentic like photos of the real historical figures. You will get a glimpse of Korean history by playing the slot. The low-value icons are Korean books, gold vessels, temples, boats, maps and decorations.
The images on the grid and around it are detailed and precise. The reels are light orange to brown and there are frames in red and stylishly ornamented. The background reveals a magnificent view of green hills and mountains. There is a Korean temple to the right of the grid. The game menu is on the bottom of the screen and its logo is at the top centre of the reels.
The pay-table includes opened books, pagodas, small ships, lamps and Korean hieroglyphs. There are also kings, queens and warriors as the main characters and the premiums symbols. The special symbols are the wild and scatter.
The wild substitutes for all regular paying symbols and appears on reel 2, 3, 4 and 5 only. This is the symbol of a stone carved creature with the word ‘WILD’ itself. The scatter is the second symbols with a significant role. This is the gold pendant with the horses. It can land on all reels and triggers the free games.
To get wins, you need 3 to 6 identical symbols landed on adjacent reels from left to right. Since Ancients of Korea has 6 reels and 4 rows, you will relish in 4096 ways to win active at all times.
To trigger the free spins you need to hit 3 to 6 scatters in a spin. Getting 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters in a spin in the base game gives you 8, 15, 20 or 50 free spins respectively. During them, the wild symbols gain an x2 or an x3 multiplier and land as wild multipliers. They increase the wins of the combinations they take part in by 2 or 3 times. You can even win an x6, x9 and higher boost when more than one wild multiplier contributes to the same line.
Additionally, the top-paying symbols and the wilds can combine when they land on the same spin. They form combinations as scatters that don’t need to be on consecutive reels from left to right to ensure wins. These pay in any position. To retrigger more free spins and add them to the tally, land 2 to 6 scatters in a free spin. If you do, you will win 5 to 50 extra free rounds respectively.
Ancients of Korea offers a fresh escape from the Chinese-themed slots. The great images of characters and typical items will set the scene. You can win from the multiplier wilds and free spins, which are plenty and you can retrigger a lot more of them. If you like Korean culture and history or want a different video slot, spin the reels of this new game. It is due to release in August 2020.
