Legacy of Dynasties Base Game and Features
Legacy of Dynasties is a 5-reel Video Slot with 10 fixed pay lines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The minimum bet available here is £.€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.28% and a max win cap of 2,300x.
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Character with the Red background, followed by the Woman, Tiger, Panda, Peafowl, and Frog. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, and Jack. Wild substitute for all other symbols except Scatters.
During gameplay, up to 10 regular symbols (excluding Scatters and Wilds) can be chosen at random to become a special Expanding symbol.
When enough instances of the chosen symbol land, they will expand to cover the entire reels they are on, but they do not need to land adjacent to each other for a payout to occur.
Legacy of Dynasties Free Spins
Landing Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 in the base game triggers the Free Spins round. This will grant you entry to the Free Spins Wheel which will award between 3 and 20 Free Spins, and up to 10 random Expanding symbols on every spin.
Landing 2 Scatter symbols during the Free Spins round will trigger Dynasty Spins, which retains the number of potential Expanding symbols on each spin from the triggering spin.
The number of Dynasty spins awarded is determined by the triggering Scatters, between 3 and 8. Additional Dynasty spins cannot be awarded during this time. During Free Spins or Dynasty spins, if a total of 70 Free Spins is reached, the round will immediately end.
Legacy of Dynasties: Our Verdict
Legacy of Dynasties captures the essence of Asian culture beautifully, yet it does little to excite us in terms of gameplay. Everyone has off days including slot providers, and Legacy of Dynasties certainly feels like an ‘off day’ for Play’n GO.
Legacy of Dynasties has similar characteristics of a ‘Book’ style game, with expanding symbols that cover entire reels and pay regardless of their positions, but it just doesn’t seem to hit the spot quite like Book of Dead or Legacy of Dead.
More of the Expanding symbols feature comes to light in Free Spins, only this time you can enter what’s called ‘Dynasty Spins’ by landing 2 Scatters on the first and fifth reel, seen previously in Scales of Dead. Only here in Legacy of Dynasties, you don’t get any sort of Multipliers that enhance the round.
Things only tend to go further downhill when you realize the game’s true potential. On a good day, Legacy of Dynasties can deliver max wins of up to 2,300x. This figure may be of interest to those just starting out in the slots world, but for those who have been playing for a while, it’s quite distasteful, to say the least.
