The Ming Dynasty in China spanned from 1368 to 1644. During this time, it was ruled by the House of Zhu. The Ming Dynasty slot game features royalties that ruled during the fall of the Ming Dynasty.
The fall of the Ming Dynasty began in the 1630s when a minister known as Li Zicheng raised a strong rebel army to rebel against the royal family. The Ming army of the royal family was weak during this time, as they were unfed and unpaid thanks to constant raids from Manchu raiders from the north and peasant revolts in the provinces.
When the capital city, Beijing, fell to the rebel army on May 26, 1644, the Chongzhen Emperor decided to hold a feast for the imperial household. Instead of facing capture and probable execution, the Emperor killed the entire imperial household with his sword. However, he was unsuccessful with his second daughter, Princess Changping, and severed her left arm instead. The Emperor then hung himself on a tree in the imperial garden that was facing the Forbidden City.
