Slot maker Iconic Gaming have taken us to the intrigues of an Emperor’s Palace in Ruyi’s Royal Love, which has plenty of features to keep the player engaged. The game plays out on a 5x3 reel set which generates 243 bet ways paying left to right. This slot has a maximum pay out of x5760.

A wild symbol, the Emperor appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and substitutes for all other symbols other than the bonus and scatter. The bonus symbol triggers free spins which carry a x2 multiplier, whilst the scatter, in the shape of the Empress, is a paying symbol when it appears three or more times and can pay out x50 the total wager when five land on the reels.

There are nine standard paying symbols, with the top payers being the eponymous Ruyi and three courtesans. These symbols are supplemented by five lower-value card symbols ranging from Ace to Ten.

If you have sampled this designer’s work in the past and enjoyed the experience, you can find more Iconic Gaming free play slots to try out in demo mode if you are thinking of visiting an online casino to play their games for real.

Theme, Graphics and Soundtrack 

This slot is based on the novel Hou Gong Zhuan by Wu Xeulan, better known by her pen name Liu Lianzi. The novel was made into a popular Chinese TV series in 2018.

The graphics are quite stunning with the main characters beautifully designed and life-like. The semi-transparent reel set gives us a glimpse of a room in the palace, and it is framed in an ornate gilded frame, whilst the dashboard and controls are quite clear and easy to understand.

The theme tune is worthy of a TV series and is played on a collection of classical Chinese stringed instruments. 

If this theme appeals to you, why not take a look at the Heart of Romance slot by Konami, which has an RTP 96.06% and displays medium variance? It is available to play in demo mode here at Slots Temple.

Ruyi's Royal Love Review 

This is a beautifully designed game with lots of features, including multipliers, free games and paying scatters. There is also a great bonus game.

Once again the game maker has failed to provide an accurate RTP, and this is a big negative, and all players should be wary.

There is, however, a great bet spread, which means you can find your way into the game, and once having done so high rollers may well be tempted.
