Red Cliff is a 5-reel video slot, the game is played with 25 fixed pay-lines. The background image of warships approaching a beach defended by cavalry and giant crossbows is quite a sight. The reels are surrounded with red and gold accents and the title sits above them in an elaborate gold frame to help bring the styles of ancient China to life. All the main characters of the plot have found their places on the striking reels. Lady Sun is the most high-paying regular symbol while three prominent men of that time make the rest of the high-paying grid.
