The Legend of Shangri La slot is a NetEnt online slot game which you can play on desktops, laptops, and mobiles for as little as 10p per spin. Like the Aloha slot by NetEnt, the slot game uses the Cluster Pays system rather than traditional paylines. It means that there are six reels, five rows of symbols, and you create winning combinations by forming clusters of nine or more symbols on adjacent reels and, even better, all ways pay! The slot also comes equipped with four special features including sticky re-spins, free spins, random substitutions, and a Nudge Reel, and the 3D graphics and animations make the playing experience even more gripping. With plenty of wins on offer, as well as a mouth-watering top jackpot of 200,000 coins is a game that’s just begging to be played!
The slot game shows clear oriental influences in its cherry blossom flowers, Hindu gods, and pagodas. If you’ve ever read the book, Lost Horizon by James Hilton, you’ll know that Shangri La is a fictional and mysterious valley hidden deep within the Himalayas, and its citizens are semi-immortal and enjoy a harmonious Utopian lifestyle. Hence, the graphics and music are wonderfully relaxing and inviting, with waterfalls cascading down the mountainside into the lakes below, petals gently falling from the cherry blossom trees, and a welcoming Tibetan monk (who happens to be a bear) acting as your guide throughout the playing experience.
The paytable symbols that appear in the slot game include gold koi, elephants, monkeys, tigers, question marks, a black-and-white oriental painting, dragonflies, butterflies, and pink flowers. The three animal gurus and the Free Spins symbols can appear stacked or singly on the reels.
To create a winning cluster, you need at least nine matching symbols horizontally or vertically adjacent to each other anywhere on the reels.
The circular green question mark symbol can substitute for all symbols in The Legend of Shangri La slot except Free Spin symbols, and it turns into the adjacent symbol that forms the most valuable winning combination.
The scatter symbol is the orienting painting labelled Free Spins, and when three or more land partially or fully on the reels, you gain between five and eight free spins.
The Legend of Shangri La slot has a further three bonus features. Random Substitutions can be activated when two or more matching clusters of symbols appear in the main game, and it adds more matching symbols until a winning combo is created. The Sticky Re-Spins Feature can be triggered when two clusters of matching but non-winning symbols are in view, and it re-spins the reels until no more matching symbols appear. The Nudge Reel can help move a Free Spins symbol which is just outside of the visible playing area back onto the reels provided there are already two Free Spins symbols present.
