Slot players can connect to the internet today and find a range of slots that replicate Asian art and symbology in their designs. Asians as well as many other people in the world look to Asia with reverence and admiration for its ancient teachings in many areas of interest. Asian symbology is huge and many emblems are thought to bring luck from animals to numbers and even colors. One of the popular symbols in China is the Chinese dragon. The dragon is thought to be the most potent symbol of good fortune. The dragon is a sign for new beginnings, continued success and prosperity and many players not only find the symbology beautiful but fortuitous.
Admittedly, “Asian-themed games” is a bit of a catch-all for those internet slots based on any number of icons from several distinct and ancient cultures flourishing on the world’s biggest continent. However, most online slot players know generally what to expect from this artificially-created subgenre: Japanese geishas, lucky Chinese dragons, Thai vacations, et cetera.
Take a trip to Asia the next time you visit the online casino for some great Asian-themed slot games. With a bevy of dragons, samurai, ninjas, geishas, and Thai beauties, it’s no wonder these cultures make for many a themed slot.
Geishas, samurai and ninjas tend to dominate this subgenre, combining erotic adventure with, well, adventure. Check out the slot games Geisha Wonders, Samurai Princess and Naughty Ninjas – just to cite three titles – for representative examples. Also tremendously popular among Japan-flavored slot games: Sushi. The Sushi Bar and Sushi Express slots will leave you hungry for more winnings, that’s for sure!
“China” may be a bit of dirty word to US president Donald Trump, but not in online casinos, any of which will feature more than one China-themed slots game. Dragons (an especially red dragons, as red is a color associated with luck) and tigers are considered in some areas of China as symbols of wealth – see Triple Fortune Dragon, Golden Dragon, Tiger Treasures and King Tiger as just a very few of the many examples of these iconic animals.
Buddha will make his appearance – sometimes even alongside golden trinkets, as gold is associated with wealth in Asian cultures – In Chinese slot machines. And the big land China has plenty of online slots of other themes with Lucky Money, Happy Golden Ox of Happiness, and Chinese New Year; again, just scratching the surface here
While China and Japan tend to dominate the “Asian-themed” subgenre of online slots, at least a couple more great nations of the big continent are well represented culturally in internet casino land. If you’re interested in Thailand (beaches or nightlife), check out the Thai Sunrise, Thai Paradise and Bangkok Nights slots.
India also gets fair representation in the virtual gaming halls, crossing over into slots subgenres like animals/wildlife (Untamed Bengal Tiger), sports (Rickety Cricket) and food (Cash ‘n’ Curry). Plus, more than one version of Jungle Book slots is out there.
In addition to the above-listed lucky icons, goldfish (a.k.a. koi or carp) are another Asian symbol thought to produce an abundance of gold while the yin-yang symbol is thought to promote balance in all things.
In China, number 4 is considered unlucky while 8, 13, and 18 are lucky; 4 and 8 are considered the same way in Japan, while 9 is an additional unlucky number. In Thailand, however, 9 is thought to be lucky; for most Indians, 3 and 6 carry good fortune. Finally, in Vietnam, 4 is unlucky as 7 is lucky, while 5 and 11 may be considered inauspicious. We don’t know if any of this will help you at the online casino, but hey…
