A 2023 release from IGT, this online slots game follows the Oriental theme seen in a number of its recent offerings. It may lack some of the bells, whistles and animation of other titles, but you’ll be mesmerized by its elegance and will soon be hooked by its simple charm, exciting features and ample rewards.

Game Overview

When a game invites you to be “blessed with wealth and prosperity” then, of course, you’re going to try your best. The game has 5 reels, medium volatility and a relatively low 93.3% return to player (RTP) but plenty of free spins, respins and multipliers to make it interesting. The game uses advanced MultiWay mechanics which gives 243 ways to win and offers four fixed jackpots offering between 10x and 10,000x your original bet. Scatters and wilds run through the reels, triggering a variety of additional features including lots of respins, some of which carry guaranteed wins.

How To Play

Treasure Box Dynasty has 11 symbols, each relating in some way to Chinese good luck and good fortune. There are three special characters and a substitute wild. As the luckiest number in Chinese culture, the 8 is the character to look for, in particular the red 8, which, with a maximum of five matching symbols, will pay out 40x. Lesser symbols include golden dragons, cranes and koi fish, each with a maximum reward of 30x; the yin and yang symbols have the lowest values of 15x. Golden coins also appear and trigger additional features. 

During free or basic spins, if fewer than five gold coins are in view, they activate a coin symbol feature that allocates each coin a random value of up to 750x the face value of the coin. More than five gold coins trigger the lock and respin feature. There are four jackpots for which you need five diamonds for the grand prize and only one yellow gem for the mini. Free spins are activated by three to five scatters, with up to 600 free spins available in any one session.


From its rich red color, which holds such symbolism for the Chinese, and a cherry blossom background with falling petals, this slot has all the elegance associated with oriental art and culture. The graphics on the reels further immerse players in the Asian theme, with teapots, fans, bamboo, lanterns and dragons represented in both 2D and 3D. Do you, like the Chinese, also have a personal talisman, symbol or good luck charm that you take with you to your casino table games? The music adds to the overall harmonious theme.


A number of unique features make this a great slot to play among the many online casino games available. Within the base game, there are four possible jackpots – mini, minor, major and grand. There’s a wild feature that appears in both the base game and free spins rounds with the wild symbol replacing all except the coin symbol and golden lantern scatter. Three or more golden lanterns activate the free spins with guaranteed wins on each spin. There is also a hold and respin feature.

The game is compatible with a range of devices on all operating systems and doesn’t require any special software to play. It can also be played in demo mode so you can get a good feel for how the game plays out before you commit to playing online slots for real money.

Bonuses and Jackpots

There is both quality and quantity to the bonus features in this game, including generous respins and a good jackpot slots maximum win potential, making this a worthwhile game to play.

Four Jackpots

Each of the four different jackpots is triggered by a different gemstone. Five diamonds during a hold and respin game wins you the grand jackpot 10,000x prize, three rubies for the major jackpot for 500x, two emeralds for the 30x minor jackpot or just one topaz for a 10x payout on the mini jackpot.

Free Spins

The wild symbol replaces all others, with the exception of the coins and golden lantern scatter, and can trigger lots of free spins for a win. And, if you land three golden lantern scatters, the free spins bonus round is activated with its guaranteed win on every spin.

Random Spin Bonuses

On any random spin in the base game, a stack of different symbols may transform into the same one, but if this happens during a free spin round, they may transform into higher-paying characters, including the red 8, giving you bigger winning potential.

Hold and Respin

Five gold coins activate the coin or hold and respin bonus feature, which gives you an additional three free spins. Each of the positions on the 5×3 reels spins independently, giving multiple options for more symbols to pop up.

The Chest Symbol Bonus

Landing the chest symbol clears all the coin symbols, leaving space for new, possibly higher-scoring symbols to appear.

Similar Games

If you love the Orient, with all its mystique and superstitions, its dragons and martial arts and you also love IGT’s work, try Enchanted Lamp or Fortune Coin online slot machines. If you’re as convinced as the Chinese about the lucky number 8, try 88 Fortunes or 88 Coins. If fixed jackpot games combined with an Asian theme appeal, Ling Chang is also worth a go.
