Players from the Far East make up a significant proportion of online casino players. Apart from the geographical Far East region, immigrants from China and Japan have settled down all over the world. Therefore online casino software providers offer a fair number of slot games based on Oriental themes. This article reviews three such online slot games from Cryptologic.

Eastern Dragon is one of the older Cryptologic online slots as is evident from the simplicity of its graphics and features. Players can enable up to 20 paylines. The thematic symbols are the fish, the lantern, the lotus and the crackers. Five fish symbols on an active payline pay out 3,000 coins. High value card symbols from A to 9 also appear on the reels. Eastern Dragon has two special symbols. The dragon is the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 1 and 5, but doubles payouts when making winning combinations. In the win animation the dragon breathes out fire. A dragon symbol appearing on the first reel pays out 2 coins. When the dragon symbol simultaneously appears on reels 1 and 5 the player is awarded 15 free spins with tripled payouts. The other special symbol is the scatter coin. It offers scatter payouts when two or more appear anywhere on the reels.

Martial arts are an integral part of Oriental culture. The Cryptologic online slot Little Master exemplifies this theme. The crafting of the graphics is more complex and is done in caricature style. A great feature of Little Master is that all the symbols used are thematic. They include the house, the garden, the water buckets, the swords, the scrolls and the bowl of noodles. After each payout players can activate the optional gamble game in which they can try to double or quadruple the payout. There are two wild symbols. The Little Master appears only on reel 2 and the Grand Master appears only on reel 4. When they appear simultaneously the Grand Master Challenge Feature is triggered. Players have to select one of three challenges that will reveal the number of free spins. The payouts during these free spins are doubled. The brick symbol depicts a stack of bricks being broken. When three of these symbols appear left to right the Challenge Feature is triggered. Players select challenges to win bonus credits.

Sushi Express is a recent Cryptologic online slot game as is evident from the sophistication displayed in the graphics and features. It focuses on sushi, which is an important component of Oriental cuisine. The reels are set in the background of a restaurant, of which Tako the octopus is the chef. The symbols on the reels include crab, prawn, fish, soya sauce and sushi. The wild symbol is Tako. It slices fish when in winning combinations. All 30 paylines are automatically enabled. The Sushi Bonus game is the highlight of the slot game. The first stage is played on a second screen where players pick sushi pieces on a conveyor to win bonus credits and free spins. In the second stage the free spins awarded are played out. At the end of each spin all the symbols except for the sushi symbols fade out. The players have to select a sushi symbol to win bonus credits. Sushi Express has a randomly triggered progressive jackpot as well.
