1421 Voyages of Zheng He Slot
Ancient Chinese heritage has always been a popularly exploited theme in land based and online slot machines and IGT is continuing the tradition with 1421 Voyages of Zheng He. The focus here is on Zheng He, a diplomat, explorer and fleet admiral.
1421 Voyages is quite unique in terms that it has 88 paylines. There are not many slots like that. We will look for more but now just Microgaming’s Emperor of the Sea and an RTG slots machine, Lucky Tiger come to mind.
Besides Zheng He himself as one of the slot icons, other symbols represent different areas where this adventurer and world traveler was most prominent – Battle Ship, Map, Shrine Bell, Golden Table are all different references to his many journeys and his life as a Ming dynasty protégé.
