Online casino players enjoyed scores of new games in 2016, and the year ahead looks sure to be just as good, with Microgaming launching two brand new titles in the first week of January alone. Those titles are Huangdi The Yellow Emperor, which is based on a character from ancient Chinese mythology, and Life of Riches, which offers players a thoroughly modern preview of what their lives might be like if they already had all the money they ever wanted.

Huangdi The Yellow Emperor is a 5-reel slots game with 25 lines based on the story of an emperor in Chinese mythology who is said to have ruled from 2697 BC. The Yellow Emperor is credited with a number of inventions, including the bow sling, the Chinese calendar and Chinese astronomy, and is also famous for defeating the mythical Chi You and his army at the Battle of Zhuolu.

Symbols in this game include the playing card suits 10, J, Q, K and A (all of which are rendered in the style of traditional calligraphy), a sword, dragon, Huangdi logo and the Yellow Emperor himself. Get three or more Scatter symbols on the reels at the same time and you will trigger 15 free spins, and if you win big your display will be inundated with ancient Chinese coins. 

The artwork in Huangdi The Yellow Emperor is superb, but the soundtrack also deserves a special mention because it was created in-house by Microgaming using a variety of traditional Chinese instruments. It is that kind of attention to detail which gives this game a remarkably authentic atmosphere and sets a very high standard for other historical titles to live up to in the future.

Whilst Huangdi The Yellow Emperor gives players the chance to enjoy a historical setting, Life of Riches is as modern a title as they get. This 5-reel game has 30 pay lines, and the theme here is financial aspiration, so any online casino player who has ever dreamed of getting rich – and we mean tycoon rich – will enjoy the world of luxury that is portrayed here.

The symbols in this title include a private jet, a luxury yacht, designer luggage, casino table, passport, the Life of Riches logo (which is a WILD), and more. Trigger the Free Spins feature and all prizes won will be doubled, unless you also get a stacked wild in the winning line, in which case the regular pay table prize will be improved by a x4 multiplier. An upbeat soundtrack plays throughout the game, and with up to 120,000 credits to be won, this title is one that could well give you the wherewithal to experience a taste of the Life of Riches first hand.

Both of these brand new games are very impressive, and the Microgaming team are naturally proud to have launched them. ‘It’s a great way to start the New Year with two games of highly contrasting styles,’ said David Reynolds, who is the games publisher at the company. ‘Of course, both are built around our engaging gameplay 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.’

Huangdi The Yellow Emperor and Life of Riches can be played at 32Red Casino and other venues on the Microgaming and Quickfire platforms.
