There is no way that Empress regnant of the Zhou Dynasty could have known that someday she will be the subject of an online slot. But she must have known that she will leave a deep imprint in Chinese history, as she was ambitious and ruthless. Known to have a heart of a serpent and a nature of a wolf, Wu Zatian was also known as Wu Zhao or Wu Hou. She was the concubine of Emperor Taizong, and after his death she became the wife of his ninth son, and successor, Emperor Gaozong. Primarily, she had the role of empress consort, but became administrator of the court after her husband suffered a stroke, and that position was seen as equal to the one of the emperor himself. She wore the yellow robe as a monarch and remains a controversial figure. Well educated, beautiful and intriguing, she was an excellent judge of men and, on top of that, politically astute.
In Wu Zetian, new Springbok Casino online slot, Empress Wu is depicted as a gorgeous woman in marvellous attire, and there are also symbols of important men in her life. Other icons in the paytable are items that she was likely to use or share presence with during her reign and most prosperous period – jewels, lanterns, gongs, jade statuettes and roses. You can also see a horse on the reels, probably Emperor Taizong’s horse Lion Stallion. There is an anecdote that says that the horse was so big and strong that no one could tame it. Wu Zetian suggested whipping it with an iron whip, striking it with an iron hammer and, ultimately killing it with a dagger should it not submit. Supposedly, Emperor Taizong praised her bravery.
