Why You Should Play The Legend of Shangri-La
The Legend of Shangri-La is a welcome addition to NetEnt’s online slot portfolio, with a fascinating theme based around the mystical Asian valley first described in James Hilton’s 1933 novel Lost Horizon. The Shangri-La here is equally tranquil, featuring temples, waterfalls and butterflies, but it is inhabited by a range of creatures who have found peace among the high peaks, and the images of the wildcat, elephant and monkeys as spiritual gurus are sure to raise a smile.
The relaxing soundtrack fits in with the story perfectly, while the gameplay is also refreshingly different to many other slots. Anyone who has played Aloha! Cluster Pays will be familiar with how it works, as you don’t even need to worry about paylines and instead pick up wins if you land adjacent symbols in a cluster. The aim is to create groups of at least nine matching symbols which are connected either horizontally or vertically.
How to Play
Select the size of your stake before starting. All you need to do is adjust the Level and Coin Value by using the + and – signs, and the total bet can be seen at the bottom of the screen. The minimum is £0.10 and the maximum is £200. Press the circular play button to start the game, or Auto Play if you want to spin the reels without interruptions. Hit Max Bet to automatically set the highest available wager, while you can select the information icon to find out more about the game.
The Wild symbol is a green circle with a question mark enclosed. It will change into the symbol which provides the best payout if there is a possible cluster, but will not replace the Scatter symbol.
The Scatter symbol is the brownish Free Spins image which shows a dragon, temple and tree branch. If you land three, four, five or six of these symbols you will receive five, six, seven or eight free spins. Between two and six Wilds will then be added to the reels after each spin.
If you land at least two clusters of at least four matching symbols, more Wild symbols will be added to the reels until the clusters join up for a payout.
If you land two matching clusters of between five and eight symbols, you will a free respin with those clusters fixed in place. Every time you land an extra matching symbol you will be granted an extra spin.
When two Free Spins symbols appear on the reels and another lands just out of view, the third Scatter will be nudged into view to trigger the free spins.
