1421 Voyages of Zheng He™

IGT’s latest video slot aims to take you sailing, with their Far Eastern and Chinese legend themed 1421 Voyages of Zheng He game. This slot is loosely based on the Chinese legend of the admiral and explorer of the same name, and features a total of 5 reels and 88 paylines for you to bet on. You won’t be able to adjust any of the paylines in this game, so at the very least you are going to be looking at minimum wagers of 88p per spin. There is also a reasonably good non-progressive jackpot to be won in the game, which is worth at least 100x your total bet.

Special features

Wild symbols have a very special role in this game. They appear as golden coins, but they are stacked and are capable of appearing on all of the reels of this slot. As good as the wild symbols are, though, they pale in comparison to the scatters.

Scatter icons take the form of a scroll (a map to be specific), and they can appear on all of the reels of the slot. It doesn’t matter whether you land 3, 4, or 5 scatters, you will still get offered the same bonus features. Players can pick from one of four bonus rounds in this slot.

Bonus features

The first of these bonus rounds is an instant win game. In this 3D bonus, you can select one of three cups to win a prize. If you find the golden call, you can win as much as 102x your total bet.

The other three features are free spin bonuses. Players can opt to select either 10, 15, or 20 free games with this feature, with multipliers worth up to 8x, 5x, or 3x being applied to winnings acquired in the bonus, respectively.


The 1421 Voyages of Zheng He slot is certainly not going to take the casino world by storm. There is little difference between this and other slots in terms of features. It does offer a tasty enough theme, though, and that could make it stand out from the other Far Eastern themed slots we have been inundated with of late.
