Ancient Gong is a slot machine from GameArt released in 2014. It is a 5 x 3 reel game with an RTP of 96% and a medium variance. Players can enjoy winning on any of the 243 bet ways at a cost of 50 credits per spin, plus it offers free spins, wilds, and scatter symbols that pay well.

The gong is an important symbol in China. It was used in ancient times to call for military back-up, and as a signal that enemies are approaching.

In Chinese palaces, the small gongs are used to wake up the workers, or to announce beforehand that the Emperor or any member of the royal family is approaching.

Because of this, players will be spinning symbols that are found in Chinese beliefs, particularly those about prosperity.


These symbols are usually found in Chinese palaces, which are still very popular in Chinese homes until today.

The high-value symbols are:

  • Gold coins
  • Ship
  • Turtle with dragon head
  • Buddha
  • Vase

There are low-value symbols in the game, too, and these are 10, J, Q, K, and A. On top of these, there is a wild and a scatter symbol. All in all, you are spinning 12 symbols on each round.


Here is the paytable for the high-value symbols. These values change as you increase and decrease your bet. The numbers shown on the paytable are currency payouts, not multipliers.

Number of Appearance in a Pay Line
Coins Ship Turtle Buddha Vase
5 12,500 5,000 5,000 1,000 1,000
4 2,500 1,250 1,250 500 500
3 1,000 500 500 250 250

To win, you have to land at least three same symbols on three side-by-side reels. The combo must start from the leftmost reel.

A combo of three symbols that start on the second reel onward will not constitute a win, even if you landed four same symbols or more.

Even if the slot has 243 bet ways, the slot game only charges 50 credits per spin. You can adjust the size of each coin between 0.01 and 5, and this will be multiplied by 50 to determine your total bet for that round.


Here are the feature symbols of the slot machine.

  • Wild – this the brown box with a disc on top. It substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The wild symbol does not pay cash.
  • Scatter – this is the gong, which pays coin prizes and triggers the bonus round. The scatter cash prizes are:
  • 5x – 6,250
  • 4x – 1,250
  • 3x – 500

The numbers shown above are the highest possible prizes at the highest bet of 250 coins per spin.

  • Extra Wild – the wild in the game can award multipliers between 1x and 20x your win amount. This wild multiplier only works during the free spins round, and only appears on the fifth reel.
  • Free Games – if you land the scatter symbol at least three times anywhere on the grid in just one spin, the slot would reward you with free games. If you land three scatters, you will be shown ten gongs.

Out of these ten gongs, you have to choose five. These five goings you selected would reveal how many free spins you won.

All wins during the free spins round are doubled, and that is on top of the multiplier you could win if you landed the extra wild on the fifth reel.


We will rate this GameArt slot a 6.8 out of 10 points in our review. The graphics are great, and the wins were quite good in our real money testing. It has wild, scatters, and free spins bonuses that can help you win.
