Dream of the Red Chamber by Cao Xueqin and Cheng Weiyuan is an 18th century novel, considered one of the cornerstones of Chinese culture. The story is about an aristocratic family’s rise and fall during the Qing Dynasty and based on Cao Xueqin's own experiences. The books are full of his friends, relatives and servants, and all the intrigue that occurs in a noble home.
With an incredibly huge cast of characters, it seems well suited to this MultiwayXtra game.
Playing the Game
As with any other game, players need to set their stake and paylines to get going and make their combinations. The symbols in this game mix up low paying playing card symbols with themed symbols. The lower values are the J, Q, K and Ace. The higher paying combinations are the Lord and all his various wives and concubines.
The Wild is a Red Pagoda and can substitutes all the other symbols except for the Bonus. The Wild symbol is missing from the first reel, so in this game it doesn’t form its own high paying combinations. But most players will come to this game for the MultiwayXtra feature. 1,024 ways to win is certainly nothing to turn your nose up at and in this game, this feature will basically double your bet.
You pay for one bet per line and you get two per line. But that's not the only reason to play this game. The Red Mansions free spins bonus is triggered when players find two or more bonus symbols in the central reel. See these and you’ll automatically go into a 20 spin game, where your stake is paid by the game but you get to pocket the winnings. This feature can be triggered indefinitely.
This is a very attractive game with great graphics, great atmosphere and a real feel of 18th century noble China. The backing track and sound effects are peaceful and easy on the ears, while the animation is smooth and satisfying. Some players would describe this as a high volatility game, with the winning combinations showing up in clumps.
If you’re the kind of money player who likes to keep an eye on your budget, Red Mansions is a good game to practise stake modification. The return to player (RTP) for Red Mansions is around 95.03%, with some big prizes to be won. However it’s not the only MultiwayXtra game on the market, so if like the feel of Red Mansions, there are plenty of other MultiwayXtra pokies to try out.
