The original concept of the kingdom of Shangri La came from James Hilton’s 1933 novel Lost Horizon. This hallowed place was the destination of many explorers. NextGen Gaming has subsequently decided to create a slot in tribute to the original story, and they have done an excellent job with the Shangri La slot game. It’s bright, colourful and a bit over the top – exactly what we like to see from modern slot games. It certainly looks the part and could prove to be a very entertaining game for many different types of player.
The ancient and mystical kingdom of Shangri La forms the basis for this game, and the slot itself looks fantastic. The background of the game offers a highly interactive outdoor scene with ancient looking buildings, bright gems, waterfalls visible. The reels are well-designed, and the level of detail and thought that has gone into this game is impressive. On the reels, there are even more objects and animals including rhinos and elephants. There are various flowers, precious looking jewels and even some classic playing card symbols such as spades or hearts.
Regarding the slot’s structure, NextGen sticks to its guns with a simple five reel, 15 payline setup. The game can be accessed from a desktop, tablet, and mobile, so there are plenty of ways to play. The maximum bet is £40, so high-roller players can also enjoy playing for significant amounts of cash!
There is a wild symbol to look out for on Shangri La slot, and it is the female adventurer character, and she replaces almost all others on the reel to help you pick up some more frequent wins. The wild can only appear on the second, third and fourth reels but when it contributed to a winning combination, it can expand to fill the entire reel as well which can also offer the player some big wins too.
There is a scatter available on this Shangri La slot also which is the Golden Amulet, and this symbol is the most valuable in the game. If it appears five times, then you will receive a 3000X payout, although, this is rare. The scatter is also the key to the bonus round which we have described below.
The bonus round can be triggered by the scatter symbol that we mentioned above and you have to land at least 3 of these symbols to trigger it. The bonus feature is split into several mini-bonuses, and there are free spins, super free games, trail bonuses and a chest bonus also. We found the trail bonus to be the most profitable when we played, and you can win a 100X line wager if you are lucky.
