Play 1421 Voyages of Zheng He slots for free or real money
Aiming to popularise Zheng He’s interesting life outside of China, IGT has created a good looking video slot which plays with 88 pay-lines and the Player Decision feature that lets one choose among several free-play options and an amusing mini-game. Here, we have a totally free version of Zheng slots, no download required to play.
IGT’s 1421 Voyages of Zheng He is not your typical Chinese-themed slot with a generic set up; it tells the story of an interesting character from the country’s past and pays tribute to his worthy accomplishments. Zheng He was a Chinese explorer and diplomat during the early Ming dynasty.
As a child, he was captured by the Ming armies, castrated at the age of 10, and sent to serve as a soldier under the command of the Prince of Yan. Having gradually won his confidence, Zheng He received proper education and became the prince’s trusted adviser, later on serving in high posts during numerous sea voyages taken on behalf of the emperor.
The number of lines you play in this game are flexible and players can choose to activate as few as 8. Setting the line bet between £0.01 and £1 allows them to wager from £0.08 to £88 per spin.
In order to win, they need to land multiple Zheng He images, massive bells, jade statues, ornate plates, or matching playing card symbols. Wild depicted as an ancient gold coin will replace any of them to help create a paying combination. The only icon it can’t substitute for is the Scattered map. Get three Scatters on the middle 3 reels and you’ll be paid double your total stake, at the same time triggering the Player Decision feature.
Choose Which Bonus Round to Play
Once the Player Decision has been activated, players are prompted to select one of Free Spins features or alternatively opt for the Cup feature. The latter is a variation of a popular cups and balls game. A golden ball is placed under one of three tea cups which are then shuffled and the player tasked with selecting the one which hides the ball. Correct guess wins them 91x their bet.
One can instead decide to try their luck with one of re-triggerable Free Spins bonus rounds, each a combination of spins and multipliers. If you opt for a maximum number of 20 spins, each of your wins will be subject to a random multiplier of x1, x2, or x3. Going for 10 rounds on the house will get payouts boosted by x1, x2 or x8, and taking the middle road with 15 Free Spins means you’ll benefit from multipliers of x1, x2 or 5x. Feel free to test what works best by making a different choice each time Player Decision feature offers you one.

Could this be a Lucrative Journey?
IGT’s titles widely differ in terms of visual appeal, and while some are as simple as can be, others clearly demonstrate time and effort invested into developing attractive graphics and amusing, theme-related animations. 1421 Voyages of Zheng He slot falls somewhere in between, though it does feature a captivating soundtrack.
As far as payback goes, expect an RTP of between 92.10% and 96.04%. Wild is the most generous game symbol but it can only win you up to 888x your line bet, which is not exactly a fortune. In order to win larger amounts, you’ll have to make smart decisions when offered to choose your bonus and have a bit of luck with Free Spins re-triggers.
