Asia is the inspiration for a huge number of online slots across the market. Here, we take a look at the top 10 slots with an Asian theme and give you the low-down on what makes them so great.

1. Choy Sun Doa (Aristocrat)

One of the leading slot developers kicks our list off with this 5-reel, 243-ways-to-win title. It is up there with the likes of Queen of the Nile and Lucky Count, both by the same developer, in terms of its popularity with players.

The God of Prosperity and Wealth in Chinese culture is the focal point of the theme for this game and he will appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 as a Wild symbol. If you manage to land three Scatters on reels 1, 2, and 3 then you’ll trigger the free spins bonus round where you can also earn multipliers to increase any potential payouts.

RTP: 95.00%

2. Fu Dao Le (Bally)

What better way to entice players to your Asian-themed slot than calling it “Fortune has Arrived” in Mandarin. Well, that’s the rough translation anyway. Either way, this 5-reel, 243-ways-to-win slot immediately puts you in a positive frame of mind with its title and the theme of luck that resonates across the Mystery Stacked reels.

The Wild symbol called the “Wonus” can be a key symbol because you can trigger free spins if you hit three of them on reel 3. If you land a “Clumped Wild”, which is essentially an Expanding Wild that fills the whole of reel 3, then you can trigger the jackpot game and win big prizes.

The Red Dragon symbol can also pay out a mini-jackpot if you land it on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously. The number 8 is also ever-present on this slot due to its association with good fortune in Asian culture.

RTP: 96.00%

3. Double Panda (Cryptologic)

If you’re a seasoned online slots player then you’ll have certainly come across this 5-reel, 25-payline title that focuses on the noble Chinese creature of the panda as its theme. The panda plays a key role on this slot because it acts as the Wild and can substitute for all other symbols, except the Scatters, to complete any possible winning combinations.

This game also gives you the chance to earn up to 25 free spins if you hit three or more of the bamboo Scatters across the reels. It’s also possible to earn up to a 3x multiplier on any free spins you might earn. This can result in some high payouts and intense action on every spin.

RTP: 93.93%

4. Jewel of the Arts (IGT)

Asian culture was at the forefront of this developer’s mind when this 5-reel, 20-payline slot was released back in 2014. It was a frantic year for the developer as it also released popular slots Western Belles and Black Widow prior to this title. In terms of aesthetics, slots gaming hit a high when this game was released onto the market.

The Geisha plays a key role on this slot as the Wild symbol. An initial 3 free spins can be triggered with the fan dance icons. That might not seem like a lot of spins, but on each spin there are Locked Wilds. It is also possible to re-trigger the free spins so you could end up on quite a roll if luck goes your way!

RTP: 96.08%

5. Mystery of Longwei (iSoftBet)

Everything about this 5-reel, 40-payline Asian-themed slot is visually stunning. The game logo and the reels themselves ensure that the graphics fulfil their potential with color and vibrancy clear to see on every spin.

All the symbols on this game, except for the Wilds, are stacked so you can imagine the excitement when you press that spin button. A selection of symbols such as the phoenix, tiger, panda, fish, gold jar, and lily pay out up to 4x on winning combinations. You’ll also want to keep an eye on the dragon symbol that triggers the 4 Colossal Spins as well as the Scatters that activate up to 30 free spins.

RTP: 97.01%

6. China Shores (Konami)

This developer might mainly be associated with computer console gaming titles but it has turned into a dab hand with online slots. The 5-reel, 30-payline slots title in question here has proven to be a smash with players since its release.

The Action Stacked Symbols are a massive draw and they’re in full swing here. This means big pay outs on winning combinations triggered by normal symbols. Land three or more Ying Yang symbols to earn up to 15 free spins with all wins doubled during that feature. The Balance of Fortune Bonus feature is also the star of this game with a huge jackpot up for grabs.

RTP: 96.10%

7. Asian Beauty (Microgaming)

This 5-reel, 243 ways-to-win slot revolves around the Geishas and the imagery on the reels is beautiful. It’s a slice of 17th Century Asian life in a slot.

Up to 25 free spins can be triggered when you land three or more of the chest Scatters with up to a 100x multiplier awarded. The randomly-triggered Mirror Bonus feature also adds fun to the reels with a pick ‘em feature giving you the chance to win a lucrative prize.

RTP: 96.40%

8. Geisha Wonders (NetEnt)

Once again, the Geisha theme is strong in this 5-reel, 30-payline slot from the renowned Swedish-based slots developer. In a portfolio that appears to contain games based on most of the standard popular gaming themes it seemed only a matter of time that an Asian-themed slot would join their ranks.

The big prize on this slot is the Mega Wonder Jackpot. It’s triggered when you land five jackpot stars on any payline across the reels. The Buddha symbol can reward you 10,000x your line bet. If you hit three to five Geisha Scatters on the reels then you’ll earn up to 30 free spins with all wins doubled.

RTP: 93.10%

9. Wu Long (Playtech)

Not many Asian-themed online slots released will receive as consistently high reviews as this 5-reel, 25-payline slot from this world-famous developer. Everything from the color scheme used on the reels to the symbols that turn on every spin. You’ll soon see why this has gone down as a great slot.

The 2,500-coin jackpot is a really pleasing aspect of this game. The dragon head also acts as a Wild and Scatter on the reels. It boasts the power of a Wild by substituting for all other symbols to complete any potential winning combinations but also triggers up to 12 free spins. The high number of multipliers that can be added to these free spins means the action can become frantic in no time at all.

RTP: 94.13%

10. Thai Flower (WMS)

Is this 5-reel, 10-payline slot as gorgeous as the hypnotic lady staring longingly into your eyes on the game’s logo? No, it’s not. It’s even better! This is a developer that never fails to deliver a top-quality slot title.

If you like Thailand, then you’ll love this. Symbols include a Thai lady, Thai boat, Thai golden vase, Thai palace, and much more. The pink lotus flower acts as the game’s Wild and 12 free spins can be won. The fascinating fact about these free spins is that you get to randomly choose three symbols that fill the reels on those free spins. Payouts galore!

RTP: 95.00%
