The Lotus Lamp is a mystical item, also known as the lotus lantern. It is found in the story of a female named San Shengmu, an immortal sister of Erlang Shen. In the story, she fell in love with a mortal man and had a son called Chen Xiang.

Chen Xiang died in the story while saving her, but the lotus lantern’s light illuminated and revived him, reuniting him with his mother on top of a Chinese mountain.


The symbols you will see on this slot game are characters found in the legend. These are:

  • San Shengmu
  • Chen Xiang
  • Erlang Shen
  • Old Hermit

  • Golden Chalice

While there are no ordinary low-value symbols in the online slot, there are several symbols here that pay lower than the ones above.

These are:

  • Battle Axe
  • Maid
  • Warrior
  • Heaven’s Gate

These low-value symbols pay between $10 and $300 at the highest bet

The game has a wild, scatter, and bonus symbol.

  • Wild – this wild is the lotus flower that glows. It substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. If used to substitute for San Shengmu and Chen, the payout will be doubled. The wild has no payout of its own, and does not award a multiplier to the other symbols.
  • Scatter – the scatter symbol is the ordinary lotus flower. It awards free spins plus cash as shown below.
  • 5x – $1,500 + 20 free games
  • 4x – $750 + 25 free games
  • 3x – $450 + 30 free games
  • NB: The scatter does not have to appear on a payline. You just have to land them anywhere on the grid to win a prize.
  • Bonus – the bonus symbol is the mountain. It pays money and activates the Save San Shengmu bonus round. The payout is shown below:
  • 5x – $750
  • 4x – $400
  • 3x – $75

To activate the bonus round, you need at least four bonus symbols on a payline position. There should be no wild in this combo. If you fail to meet this, you will only get cash but not the bonus round.

In the bonus round, you have to split the mountain with an axe. After the split, the slot will award your with cash prizes. The larger your bet, the larger prizes you will get.


We rate this free Chinese themed pokies game with 7.6 out of 10 points. It is packed with features and bonuses, plus the cash prize are generous. One issue we have is that you have to land the bonus symbol on a payline, and you need four symbols to activate the Save San Shengmu bonus round. This was difficult to achieve in our testing given that there are 13 symbols in the game. Not to worry, try it for yourself free right from our site above.
