Next month we are set to see the next release from the NetEnt Cluster Pays series of slots and the theme is one based on a fictional place from the 1933 novel Lost Horizon written by James Hilton.
The Legend of Shangri-La is set for release in September 2017 and might be a name that you have seen before in the world of online gaming. Earlier this year another developer, NextGen, released a game called Shangri-La.
We’re expecting more from the NetEnt version though, and the trailer video certainly buoys those expectations.
This slot boasts six reels and five rows but as a Cluster Pays game, there are no fixed pay lines. Winning combinations are created when there is a cluster of nine of more symbols.
The game theme features monks that have all taken on an animal form. Additionally you will find koi carp, dragonflies, butterflies and beautiful flowers on the reels. All of these make the aesthetics and overall graphics of the game pretty impressive.
This happens when two or more clusters of the same symbol are on the screen. They must have at least four symbols in to trigger this random feature.
The substitution symbol will appear on the screen and connect the two small clusters to create a much larger one.
If two non-winning clusters of between 5 and 8 symbols appear on the reels then you will trigger the sticky respin feature.
When this activates, the two clusters will be held and any symbols that are the same will stick to create a larger cluster until no new symbols have been added to the cluster.
Free spins are activated when you spin in three or more of the free spins symbols. On occasion, the monk will tap his cane when only two have landed on the reels and another will roll back onto the screen to activate this bonus. This is called the Nudge Reel feature.
The more free spin symbols that are landed, the more free spins you get.
If any win creates a win worth 10x or more your bet, you will get an additional free spin.
Throughout the free spin feature, substitution symbols will be added on each spin. The Ice Dragon will appear and remove some of these whilst others will stay in place until they help create a winning cluster.
