Silk Dynasty is a part steampunk, part oriental html5 video slot whose developer DreamTech Gaming released it on January 18, 2021. Game’s plot: the protagonist is oriental steampunk engineer-and-emperor Han Wudi (alternatively named Emperor Wu) whose reign, during the Han Dynasty, commercialized silk; other themes are playing card suits, feng shui ideology, gear-inspired Chinese cultural symbols, and mythology.
DreamTech owns numerous oriental games, including: Investiture of Gods (May 2019), Gold Jade (June 2018), Big Red (June 2019), Dragon Phoenix Prosper (May 2019), Fu Lu Shou (May 2019), Tales of Wusong (June 2019), Guang Gong (May 2019), Mahjong King (February 2019), Cai Shen Dao (September 2020), and Golden Rat (January 2020).

One symbol (guardian lion) requires three scattered winning combinations. Ten symbols (Chinese dragon, elephant, horse, koi carp, shield/sword, open-mouthed dragon head, spades suit, hearts suit, clubs suit, and diamonds suit) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Silk Dynasty Game Characteristics
Silk Dynasty has a translucent, blackish 5X5 grid in a golden piping system that forms the front wall of a red-roofed bay house. There are 40 left-to-right fixed paylines, eleven coin values, eleven total bets with X20 factor, twelve symbols, shifting win multipliers, free games, neither bonus game nor side game, and regularly pays from X5 to X1000.
Silk Dynasty has two special symbols: the substitute is the monocle-wearing “wild” Emperor Wu in a piped gray-and-red robe and black-and-golden graduate cap; and scatter is a golden guard lion.
There are ten gear-fitted, metallic ordinary symbols: green-and-golden Chinese dragon; steel blue elephant; fuming bronze horse; meter-fitted copper koi carp; purple-and-golden shield/sword; golden-and-sky blue dragon head; gray-and-blue spades suit; gray-and-purple hearts suit; gray-and-golden clubs suit; and gray-and-green diamonds suit.
Silk Dynasty’s coin values: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.08, $0.10, $0.15, $0.20, $0.25, and $0.30. Resulting from multiplying the aforementioned coin denominations with X20 factor, the total bets are as follows: $0.20 (minimum bet), $0.40, $0.60, $0.80, $1.00, $1.60, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, and $6.00 (maximum bet).
Silk Dynasty has these payouts. Three scattered guardian lions pay X5. Three, four, and five: Chinese dragon pays X40, X200, and X1000; elephant pays X20, X100, and X500; horse pays X20, X50, and X50; koi carp pays X15, X30, and X125.

Three scattered guardian lions prompt twelve free games, alongside three shifting win multipliers. Each of these “X5” multipliers progressively increase by +1 after multiplying a winning combination; these multipliers are contained in three cells that randomly envelope symbols as they keep shifting up and down the three inner reels. Silk Dynasty lacks a default maximum win.
