Red Mansions Slots

Red Mansions may seem like yet another generic Asian-themed slot to fill the library of online casinos, however those of you who know your Chinese literature will know that it’s based around one of China’s Four Great Classical Novels – ‘Dream of the Red Chamber’ which is often referred to as ‘A Dream of Red Mansions’.

It’s hard to summarise such a great novel but it basically tells the story of two Dukes from the extremely wealthy Chia family who have contrasting views and you’ll see the main characters that the story revolves around featuring as symbols on the reels with an alluring oriental soundtrack accompanying the drama as it unfolds.

Chinese Classic

Upon loading the reels of the Red Mansions video slot, you will find yourself under a magenta sky looking at a grand pagoda which encases the five columns with 4 rows of symbols, with each symbol position being a separate reel.

The return-to-player percentage varies between 92.90% and 95.03% and players who enjoy MultiWay Xtra slots will be pleased to hear that this is yet another which means you can win by matching symbols on adjacent reels and the more symbols on a reel will see your prize multiplied. It boasts up to 1,024 ways to win and you can also opt to play with 40, 20, 10 or 1 win line active instead but I’d strongly recommend against doing so as you’re sure to miss out on some memorable wins by being a cheapskate.

While base game wins of up to 500 coins may not sound the most appealing, if you come across two or more jade pendants on the central reel you will trigger a free spins bonus feature which never fails to see you become wealthier – not quite on par with a Chinese aristocrat though!

Wealth and Influence

As you’d expect, the pay table of Red Mansion is filled with symbols that accentuate wealth and influence. The stunning view of the pagoda at night is the most special symbol of all as it is the Wild symbol that can appear on all but the first column to substitute for all symbols aside from the jade pendant Bonus symbol.

I will assume you are playing with 1,024 ways to win active to describe the payouts you should expect with the highest-paying symbol being Lin Daiyu, who is considered to be one of the most studied literary figures in history, seeing you claim up to 500 coins. Jia Baoyu is worth as much as 350 coins, Xue Baochai greets you with up to 250 coins, Wang Xifeng and Qin Keqing are worth up to 100 coins and the standard Ace to Jack symbols we see so often feature as the lowest-paying symbols of all, worth a maximum of 40 coins.

Jade in His Mouth

The inclusion of a jade pendant as the Bonus symbol may seem a little random (although it could be associated with the family’s great wealth) but those of you who know the story will know that it’s a reference to Jia Baoyu, the principle character from the classic, who was born with jade in his mouth.

Seeing two or more of these Bonus symbols appearing on the third column in this free Red Mansions slot machine will see you edge closer to becoming a lot wealthier as you trigger a very lucrative free spins bonus game. The more symbols you trigger the feature with, the better, as two of them see you claim 10 free spins, three earn you 15 free spins and four of them appearing at once see you celebrate 20 free spins.

While I prefer free spins features that offer multiplied wins and there are no such perks here, the fact you can retrigger the feature again with the same combination of symbols that have just been outlined often sees you play for free for quite some time!

Will You Accumulate Great Wealth?

The Chia family, who the classic 'Dream of the Red Chamber' novel revolved around, were renowned for their vast wealth but you’ll probably be disappointed with your balance after a session playing Red Mansions.

Visually it is very impressive with the main characters from the story featuring as stunning symbols, however the base game wins are average at best and the only real excitement comes from the free spins feature which can be retriggered.

Red Mansions was actually released hot on the heels of Jewel of the Arts which is another Asian-themed slot that I’d thoroughly recommend you checking out instead!
