Ancients of Korea Slot (iSoftBet)

With the Asian market increasing becoming a popular hunting ground for slot developers, it is a niche that has slowly carved itself, and many new slots are now borrowing inspiration from here.

Ancients of Korea, a slot machine that was released in 2021 by iSoftBet is one of these games, and it borrows a lot from the legends and renowned heroes of the Korean peninsula.

Among its main characters are kings and queens, and from what I found out, it’s a title that will offer lots of satisfaction for players looking for something less complex in the Asian category. I will share more findings of the game:

Game Set-Up

Ancients of Korea offers a very bigger game area, and by this, I mean, a 6x4 reels design, and up to 4,096 ways to win. Its features are free spins multiplier wilds, as well as the regular wilds.

Betting and Prizes

I love the slot’s setting because it allows a player to modify the coin value (in the range of between $0.01 and $1).

I aimed to place real money bets, and so I put several bets with different amounts of money but within the set limit of $0.20 to $20 (20 coins can go into the entire 4,096 ways to win active).

Although I’m happy with the many paylines that iSoftBet has given this slot, I’m a little disappointed with its low potential because the much that you can get from it is 1000xs, with an RTP of 95.94%.

Ancients of Korea Features

Although the slot offers up to 6 reels, I noticed that the Wild only appears in the middle four. They come in their own Wild logo and you can easily identify them from their stone-made creature kind of image.

The wild as usual acts as a substitute, and I was able to combine it with any regular icon to get trigger a win.

The other symbol that offers a special role is the gold pendant that comes with images of horses drawn on it.

It serves as the scatter and it is what I used to activate some free spins. The good thing about the scatter on this lot is that it can be landed on any reel, and depending on how many you manage to land (3, 4, 5, or 6), you can be rewarded with 8, 15, 20 or 50 free spins.

During the free spins, I also got to enjoy a multiplier since the wilds gain by either 2x or 3x. Additionally, the slot’s top symbols, plus the wilds can be joined if they appear together, and this is another way of forming combos as scatters.

With a set of an additional 2 to 6 scatters landing again on the reels, you get extra free spins of between 5 to 50.

Theme & Design

The design heavily relies on the Korean flavour, and I’m happy with the workmanship, especially the painted characters that appear like real people.

High-value icons include warriors, kings, queens, and priests, while the low-value ones come in the images of Korean books, gold vessels, temples, maps, boats, and other decorations.

Conclusion

Ancients of Korea gives the right mix of Korean graphics, and overall, it’s a good slot machine.

It is a decent choice for gamers interested in this type of theme, or for players who simply want a break from the all-too-common Chinese titles.
