Here the lucky slot player finds themselves in the mystical realms of the harmonious fantasy land of Shangri-La; that mythical valley where only the peace of perfection reigns supreme! We are guided by a lithe, raven-haired adventurer who will lead us through the mountainous rooftop of the world. NextGen’s Shangri-La slot uses a perfect combo of fantasy land setting and technology to create a superior slot game.
We find ourselves in this Himalayan paradise with a golden mountain temple amidst a snow-peaked mountain scene with gushing rivers. The graphics are worth getting excited about with their near perfect riot of colour and seriously tasty details. The reels are set in an intricate gold and jewel encrusted frame which hint at the treasure trove on offer on this slot.
Shangri-La slot is a 3 rows, 5 reels and 15 pay-lines slot game with an oriental feel to it like the Si Xiang slot or Fortune Girl.
The theming of this exotic game are a set of fantastical creatures and objects from the idyllic Shangri-La, including an albino tiger, an amour-clad rhino, a decorated elephant, a towering temple, a famed lotus flower, and a curved sword. The lower value symbols are a heart, diamond, club and spade of the card deck. This is an altogether more peaceful slot than the Legend of the Five Ninjas slot and other games we could mention!
The game’s Wild is the wild raven-haired girl and she substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter cropping up on reels 2, 3 and 4. The Scatter is an eye-popping golden tiger trophy.
This game is all about those oh-so generous extras and in the base game you can find yourself smiled on by fortune when the randomly triggered extra Wilds or Scatters come into play. And what’s more reels 2, 3, and 4 can turn completely Wild- beat that for fantasy fun!
This beguiling adventurer, the Wild, is the key to unlocking some of this game’s riches, and when she turns up in a winning combo she doubles the winnings-now that is some handy action!
If you can land the impressive tiger trophy then this is a route to some of the most fun; and the buckaroos too. Get three of these tiger treasures to land anywhere across the reels then you enter the true adventure, the Shangri-La Bonus.
The bonus has four dreamy features on offer for the discerning player. First up there’s the tasty 8 free games with a greater chance for more Wilds. Or how about Super Free Spins, here you can get your mitts on 12 free spins with Wilds making an appearance, and this can be re-triggered – now feel that heady adrenalin!
The Chest Bonus provides the player with a moment of adventure where you can pick treasure chests to reveal prizes, but beware there is a trap in there, so don’t spring this or you end the feature.
And finally how about the adventurous Trail Bonus? This give you a jaunt around a map where you spin a wheel to dictate your journey and its prizes – but watch out for “X” which doesn’t mark the spot in this game – its only ends the feature! The plus with this feature is that you can win up to x100 your total bet-that’s worth adventuring for!
For those who like their adventure to be high octane, there’s a Gamble element where you can stake your win on the turn of a card- double your money by picking the right colour of the next card turned or quadruple it and guess the suit- but remember it’s a gamble!
Shangri-La is a mystically themed slot with a lot to offer in terms of its extras and its stunning graphics, I found this slot just a really well-designed and easy to play diversion from the everyday, and a little escape to the otherworldly Shangri-La.
