If you’re not up to speed on your medieval oriental history, then you might not be overly familiar with the story of the 108 heroes of the Suikoden. This epic tale started life as an ancient Chinese novel but eventually became hugely popular in Japanese culture. The story revolves around 108 noble criminals who run in a Robin Hood style outlaw gang. For the past two centuries, 108 Heroes has become a staple part of both Chinese and Japanese art, literature and film. Now it is experiencing a new lease of life as an exciting slot game from Microgaming which is full of excellent special features and game play.
If you think you’ve seen enough of eastern Asian themed slots, think again. The design and artwork of 108 Heroes is of course totally Chinese and brimming with martial arts imagery and animation. The game invites you to join the gang of 108 Heroes, by entering the stunning setting of Liang Mountain to fight the rich and corrupt powers that be. The reels are beautifully decorated with an intricate golden frame set before a background of cherry blossom trees. Symbols on the reels include main characters, Ling Chong, Wu Yong, Sun Erniang and Li Kui.
How to play
Like most Microgaming slots, 108 Heroes is simple and straightforward to play. The game has five reels and a fixed amount of 15 pay lines. There is plenty of variation of the reels which can be spun from £1 to £75. The bonus prize on offer here is extremely impressive, worth a whopping 120,000 coins!
Bonuses and extras
The 108 Heroes were famed throughout china for their generosity and that is why they are offering two generous bonus games. Firstly, the King’s Treasure bonus springs into action when three or more treasure chest symbols appear on the reels. This is a pick ‘em round which requires players to pick five of 12 treasure chests, each one offering a different cash prize. Then there is the free spins bonus. Triggered by finding at least three Liang Mountain symbols, this game dishes out 10 spins with a 3X multiplier.
