The Ancient Four

The Ancient Four Slot Review

The Ancient Four represent the traditional symbols of wealth and prosperity in Chinese culture in the form of the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermillion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Tortoise of the North. I wish I had a crew of legendary animals to bring me wealth and prosperity; it would make life a hell of a lot easier. Perhaps it's time I move to China and get the authentic experience.

Gameplay

The Ancient Four is a 5x4 reel, 50 payline video slot powered by Platipus Gaming. Symbols include Royal Card Suits (9-A), Amulets, Bonsai Trees, and 3 Animal Characters (White Tiger, Vermillion Bird, and Black Tortoise). Special Symbols include the Azure Dragon Wild and the Yin Yang Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature. More detail will be provided in the Features section.

At the bottom left of the reels, you will find a Menu icon (three horizontal lines) that expands to the full menu that gives you the following options: Sound, Pay Table, Full Game Information, History of Play, and Full-Screen Mode. The rest of the function bar contains the Balance window, Total Bet window, Win window, adjustable Bet button, Autospin button, Turbo button, and Spin button.

Features and Unique Features

Features in The Ancient Four include the Azure Dragon Wild and the Yin Yang Scatter triggers the Free Spins Feature.

The Azure Dragon Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Yin Yang Scatter, to form winning combinations.

Land 3 Yin Yang Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 to trigger the Free Spins Feature, awarding between 10 free spins. On each spin, an Azure Dragon Wild is added to reels 2, 3, 4, and 5, and the feature can be retriggered.

Performance

The Ancient Four has minimal features, with only a Wild and Free Spins Feature. Platipus missed an excellent opportunity to incorporate nifty features for each of the Ancient Four Characters, which is such a pity. However, the Free Spins Feature can yield some decent wins. The design, animation, and graphics are great. RTP is at a low 95.02%, with medium volatility.

Max Win

The max coin win is 1000x your stake.

Conclusion

The Ancient Four may be a bit ticked off by the fact that the RTP and max win are so low, considering that they are the symbols of wealth and prosperity. So Platipus created a bit of a hit and miss here, in my opinion. Much like me whenever I participate in sports.
