Lady of the Orient came out of Microgaming’s labs and it appears to be a slot machine that is based on the idea of Asia, featuring a number of characters and objects which are recognizable as coming from that region. The graphics are quite pretty, a bonus in the game’s favor as far as I’m concerned. The features are rich, giving you pretty much every option you might be used to having, from the free spins, to multipliers, bonus games, scatter symbols and a wild. The game places 20 win lines on its 5 reels, while the prizes you can win inside can go up to $150,000.
Betting and Prizes
A game with 20 lines, it can get expensive fairly quickly if you let it, its maximum bet going up to $200. You can go as low as $0.01 for one line though, so it can be as cheap as you need it as well. You can include up to 20 coins in the line bet, with the denomination of up to $0.50, so the maximum you can spend is $10 per line.
The game, with its 5,000x top prize, does well enough for the player, promising a payout of up to 100,000 coins, or $50,000. Keep in mind that tripled prizes are offered during the free spins, meaning that the jackpot could actually reach a value of $150,000.
Lady of the Orient Slot Features
We see a beautiful lady of the Orient in the wild symbol, shown as a young woman with a gold headdress and with a flower behind her ear. As the wild, you only get this symbol on the reels 2, 3 and 4. Appearing there, it can only be used as a substitute, for symbols that are considered regular. Naturally, this doesn’t include the Palace scatter.
With help from the scattered Lady that I mentioned above, you can get a bonus game to start up. The Lady wild has to be on the middle three reels during the same spin, and this will trigger the feature. You simply have to match three Lucky Cats of the same color, and you will get a prize.
The other symbol to watch out for is the scatter, and its image is that of a Palace from that region of the world. You’re going to trigger both cash payouts and free spins with its help. In the case of the former, you need 2 to 5 symbols, and in exchange you will win back 2x to 100x the bet value. For the latter, with 3+ Palace scatters you trigger the 15 free spins, where all prizes will be tripled.
Theme & Design
The design of Lady of the Orient video slot is actually rather interesting, elegant and managing to show off a different part of Asia than you might be used to. It looks like it is perhaps inspired by the culture of Thailand, but it’s difficult to tell. Symbols do give you some basic poker letters/numbers, but there are also lotus flowers, bracelets, a sail ship, an elephant, the palace and the lady.
Lady of the Orient delivers a decent enough design, one which is not too common looking, plus it has pretty much all the features you could ask for.
