Slot Details

Welcome to a world of Cherry blossoms and green valleys with tranquil shrines and melodious background music, together building the world that is seen in The Legend of Shangri-La. The game is a 6-reel, 5-row video slot with the Cluster Pays™ mechanic, featuring Sticky Re-Spins, Random Substitutions, Nudge Reel and Free Spins.

 

 

TRTP of this medium variance game is 96.59%, boasting a maximum win on 1,000x bet for a full screen of red Cat Guru symbol. Bet levels and coin values range from 1 – 10 and 0.01 – 2.00 allowing for bet sizes between $0.10 – $200. The slot is in HTML5 format available on desktop, mobile and tablet across all OS platforms.

Pay symbols are all stacked and consist of gold fish, fireflies, butterflies and sea flowers at the low end as well as the Monkey Guru, Elephant Guru and Cat Guru at the high end . Wilds or, as they have been called for this slot, Substitution Symbols are question marks which will magically transform to the highest adjacent symbol to give the best possible win combination. Pays for a full screen of symbols range from 200x – 1,000x bet. Scatters are a beautifully crafted tile showing a mountain scene with the dragon flying by and the words Free Spins across it.

Cluster Pays™

Don’t be surprised if you can’t find pay lines for this slot as wins are awarded for clusters of symbols, just like on the first game of this Netent series, Aloha! Cluster Pays™. This unique pay mechanism provides ample chances to really take hold and bring in those big wins. A minimum of 9 is needed for the lowest win, comparable to a 3OAK on a normal slot, up to a maximum of 30 for the top pay for each symbol. Might take some time to see that full screen though, especially for the top paying symbols as it seems very hard to get past 15 low paying ones and 10 – 12 of the high paying symbols.

Monk Random Features

Netent has given the game additional features that will help produce big and mega wins:

  • Random Substitutions: Activated when at least 2 clusters of the same symbol land in the base game. Each of these clusters must
    consist of at least 4 symbols. At least 1 Substitution symbol is added to the four middle reels, at positions adjacent to the existing clusters. More will be added randomly until a win is achieved.
  • Sticky Re-Spins: At least 2 non-winning clusters of 5 – 8 of the same symbol, appearing anywhere on the reels, can activate the Sticky Re-Spins feature. If there are two symbols which each meet the condition, then the lowest paying symbol is chosen. All other symbols are blanked out and any further winning symbols landing fully adjacent to the initial combination will be sticky and a further spin is triggered as long as there are more symbols added on each spin. The total win is counted up on the amount of all clustered symbols on the screen.
  • Nudge Reel: If 2 Free Spins symbols land on the reels and another Free Spins symbol lands to the right of them just outside the visible reel area, that third symbol can be nudged back onto the reels to activate Free Spins.

Shangri-La Free Spins Feature

Three, four, five or six scatter symbols landing on a spin will activate 5, 6, 7 or 8 Free Spins. During the feature, random Substitution symbols will be added to and removed from the reels each spin with the first 2 randomly placed on the reels before the start of the feature. The rest of the Substitution symbols during the Free Spins feature will be added to positions adjacent to clusters formed by the first 2 Substitution symbols:

  • After each spin and once the reels have stopped, between 2 and 6 Substitution symbols are added to the reels.
  • If the Substitution symbols can create a winning cluster, they will transform into the selected symbol and potential wins added.
  • The symbols that were originally Substitution symbols transform back into their original form.
  • Before the next spin, between 1 and 4 Substitution symbols are randomly removed from the reels with minimum 2 always being kept.
  • Extra Spin: If the total win from the Free Spins round is less than 10x bet, 1 additional spin may be awarded with no Substitution symbols being removed from the reels.

Final Words

Did we reach our own Nirwana after our first spins on new Netent slot? To be honest, after Aloha! Cluster Pays™ we were expecting something similar exciting and Netent has indeed produced again a game with new surprises and features. The maximum pay of 1,000x bet has been also kept, making it potentially very profitable. The feature hit rate is high enough to avoid boredom and the Free Spins have a minimum pay guarantee of 10x bet.

All good things that should entice any avid slotter to give this new game a few spins when it is released on 21st September 2017.
