Imperial Opera is a slot machine from the Swedish game developer Play’n Go and it has taken its theme from the Chinese Opera. Opera has long traditions in China. Yes, it can actually be documented as far back as the 3-400’s. True enough, the early opera was probably not the same as we associate with opera today and the Chinese opera is also not the same as the western one. In China, the various Chinese dynasties used the opera in their doctrines and so did the Chinese Communist revolutionary Mao Zedong and his fourth wife in the early years of the Chinese Republic.

The slot machine layout.
Imperial Opera is one of the traditional online slot machines in that it is played over five reels and three rows and it offers 20 fixed paylines. It has a payback percentage (RTP) of 96.5 and a medium to high volatility. Therefore, it is not a slot machine you should bet on the day you have a low gaming budget, because then all the money can disappear before you see any benefit from them (there is of course no guarantee that they will not do it anyway. But you know that probably already).
The bet per spin it can be adjusted from 2 kroner (0.2 €) and up to 1000 kroner (100 €). The maximum win in Imperial Opera is at 2500 times your bet.
The graphics of the machine are beautifully executed and a delight to the eye and the music does not get tiring, but should you feel it, then you can turn it off as you know.
Imperial Opera’s four functions.
This is a function that is activated randomly and when activated then 2 or 3 wheels that are next to each other will synchronize and display the same symbols. A bit like the feature of NetEnt’s Twin Spin.
function This function is also activated randomly and when it does, from 1 to 2 reels will be covered by wild symbols and become a so-called wildcard wheel.
Neither of the above two features can be activated during the free spins round.
This feature is available on all spins. A symbol is selected at random and a stack of this symbol will be placed on the wheels.
Mega symbols feature
In the latest game launches, the latest from Yggdrasil Gaming for example, we have seen several versions of large symbols covering multiple symbol spaces. In Play’n Go’s Imperial Opera, the feature is called Mega Symbols. There is always a character symbol that can become Megas symbol. This is a symbol that extends to cover 3×3 symbol spaces, with the increased chances of winning it brings.
Free spin in Imperial Opera.
Free spins are always nice to get and that is often what we consider a bonus game in a slot machine. The way free spins are activated can seem a bit complicated, as it is activated when you have a Megasymbol on your reels and the scatters symbol with the text FREE SPINS stops in the Megasymbol. This feature is only active in the basic game Harmony and you will be rewarded with 10 free spins. If you manage to spin another scatter symbol, you get 10 more free spins and this can continue indefinitely or until you get the maximum winnings.
Imperial Opera on mobile.
Of course, the game works great on all your handheld devices as well as data whether it is an Apple product or another. This is almost superfluous information in today’s society, but we still include it. So if your mobile casino is your thing, you can play Imperial Opera without any problems.
Imperial Opera is an interesting addition to the slot machine front. It’s nice to see some high culture entering the world of the slot machine. Though that said, the culture only comes in the name because you don’t learn much about either Chinese or Western opera for the part through this slot machine. Still, this one comes in fresh among all the slot machines about Vikings, mythology, etc.
We have had fun playing at Imperial Opera as well, though we have no trouble admitting that this is hardly going to be one of our new favorites. For that, the market has far too many interesting things to offer. If you are an ihuga fan of Play’n Go on the other hand then you will probably like this slot machine which fits nicely into the Play’n Go portfolio of slot machines of particular interest.
