Microgaming went with an Eastern explorer theme for Emperor of the Sea Deluxe. This online slots game has a layout that is slightly bigger than normal, with 4 symbols able to land on each of the 5 reels. There are 88 paylines, a number loaded with special meaning in Chinese culture, so it fits in perfectly with the theme, but one which also has positive attributions in the West. It symbolises good fortune in China, and many supermarkets in this part of the world have items with prices containing many 8s. But around the rest of the world, it is used to infer hugs and kisses by amateur radio operators and is also an Angel number according to Numerologists. To them, it signifies inspiration, integrity, efficiency, balance, and abundance. And even NASCAR drivers favour it, with several well-known names using it, like Pepper Cunningham, Tim Flock, Buck Baker, Ralph Earnhardt, and Fireball Roberts. This is why it’s become a popular bumper sticker with these sports fans..
The Sea-Faring Explorer’s Theme
For the Emperor of the Sea Deluxe online slots game, Microgaming has taken the fact that the Chinese explored the world in huge numbers from roughly then 2nd century through to the 15th one. While we may not know that much about it, there is a long list of brave adventurers that set off on dangerous voyages. With hundreds of ships in tow, they reached foreign shores like Ethiopia, India, Malaya, the Persian Gulf, and Sri Lanka. Emperor of the Sea players will see some of the details of these exploratory travels in the game. That means that there are sea dragons, exactly what the Ancient Chinese crews would have expected to see hiding out in the murky depths, and ships, gold, turtles, koi, and then the 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace to make up the lower-paying icons.
