Asian-themed slots are very popular at online casinos. Similar to slot games inspired by Ancient Egypt, Oriental-themed games take you to a world that may seem completely new to you. Often, you’ll find that these games are inspired by traditional Japanese or Chinese culture and that themes revolve around mysticism, tradition, or cultural identifiers.
There are loads of Asian slot games on the internet that cover the many aspects of this theme. If you are looking to find some recommendations for games featuring this theme, we have created a list of Asian-theme slots we think most players will like!
Funcanglong is a slot that makes use of the ever-popular dragon theme. In Chinese culture, the dragon is often seen as an animal representing wisdom and luck. While playing the real money slot, players can expect to see a load of theme-related images, such as temples, golden coins, and dragons spinning across the screen.
While the game has a funny name for English speakers, we can assure you that the jackpot offered in the title is no joke. With a return-to-player percentage of 96% and average volatility, you can expect to have a good chance of winning with this game (we did!)
2. Great 88 (Betsoft)
Great 88 by Betsoft seems to take every single Oriental stereotype and sticks it in a slot game. Bamboo, dragons, Chinese lanterns, and calligraphy are some of the themed symbols you can expect to see on the reels. As is usually the case with Betsoft games, all visuals look beautiful, making for a wonderful experience.
The RTP percentage in Great 88 is set at 95.36%, meaning you have a good chance of winning. The game also seems to like awarding big prizes regularly, which suggests that the volatility may be better than expected too.
3. Dragon Orb (Realtime Gaming)
Dragon Orb has been around for a while. This is one of a number of dragon-themed slots created by Realtime Gaming. Similar to Funcanglong, Dragon Orb uses a lot of imagery traditionally related to the stereotypical idea of Chinese mysticism, including temples, scrolls with calligraphy, golden ornaments, and cherry blossoms.
The game has an RTP of 95.4%, but it is slightly more volatile than other games. With a major jackpot of near $5,000 up for grabs, you need to decide whether dealing with the less forgiving variance is worth putting up with on bigger bets.
4. Sushi Bar (Betsoft)
We really feel like Betsoft outdid themselves with Sushi Bar. The game is really very beautiful, and the soundtrack makes it seems even more inviting. The software developer has creatively designed traditional card symbols (A, K, Q, J, 10) with classic sushi dishes. For example, the letter “J” has been illustrated with a number of salmon rolls.
Sushi Bar’s RTP is 94.75%. Overall, some players may get bored of the game after a couple of spins because there aren’t as many bonus modes as seen in other Betsoft games, but we had a great time with this game. (Some of the members of our team even won some nice prizes while playing it.)
5. Fa-Fa Twins (Betsoft)
Fa-Fa Twins seems to be Betsoft’s attempt to make a game influenced by kawaii culture. The game features cute twin girls and a lot of stereotypical Asian imagery, including a golden cat ornament, cherry blossoms, a golden fish, and lanterns, among others. There are also card-themed symbols in the game, meaning there are many different symbol combinations available.
Overall, Fa-Fa Twins is a fun game to play and pays 243 ways. Although the RTP is set at 95.29%, the game is highly volatile, so there is that to consider.
