Playtech's Chinese-style video slots have beautiful graphics and a typical 5x3 grid, however the payline is not only from left to right but also in the opposite direction. This gives players twice the chance to win, and the modest amount of only five paylines sounds less appealing. The theme chosen by Playtech is unique - unlike most Chinese and Asian-style slot games, the Daming Empire actually draws inspiration from the historical period from 1368 to 1644, a great era in the history of the country. In fact, China is known as the Daming Empire. The slot depicts two noteworthy characters - the Emperor Hongwu, the founder of the dynasty, and his spouse, Matthew.
