Microgaming marked the New Year with the launch of two new online slots, Huangdi and Life of Riches.

Life of Riches - Microgaming

Players can now join Huangdi, the Yellow Emperor, whose revolutionary inventions are intertwined with authentic calligraphy and ancient symbols. Bringing the game to life is a unique soundtrack, created in-house using a number of traditional Chinese instruments.

Beautifully designed artwork, including a stunningly rendered background capturing the legendary Zhuolu battlefield, feature across the five reels and 25 paylines, with stacked and expanding symbols, 15 re-triggerable free spins, and expanding wilds in both the base and free spin games. Animations are true to the theme; instead of generic gold coins during big wins, this game features ancient coins.

Life of Riches brings all the glitz and glamour of the jet-set lifestyle to the slots, with players matching super yachts, sports cars, private jets and much more in this aspirational game. This five-by-three reel, 30-line game gives numerous opportunities for amassing a small fortune with a multiplier free-spin feature where wins are doubled.

David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming, said: “It’s a great way to start the New Year with two games of highly contrasting styles. Of course, both are built around our engaging game-play features, but the quality of the graphics, animations and sounds are what really bring these games to life. The game development teams work hard to ensure all facets of the games are true to the theme.

“For example, in Huangdi, the low symbols were designed to capture Chinese calligraphy, but the creative team had to ensure that the stroke direction and patterns were accurate when recreated digitally.”
