Who hasn’t dreamed of visiting Shangri-La since it was first mentioned in James Hilton’s wonderful novel, Lost Horizon? It sounds like it is one of the most magical places on the planet filled with beauty and wonder. Well now we can voyage there thanks to software company NetEnt releasing Shangri-La Slots last month, to much deserved fanfare.
The fictional destination has often been labelled as
paradise on earth, so you’d better believe that the graphic designers over at NetEnt spent some time creating this gorgeous game to make sure that they got everything just right. Shades of pinks, purples, greens, and blues immediately transport users to the mystic Orient as the background flows with stunning waterfalls to ensure a thoroughly peaceful experience. Multiple gurus even help to guide throughout this spiritual iGaming adventure.
This new release differs from most for two reasons: 1) it has six reels, not five, and 2) there’s a crazy payout system of “cluster pays”, which takes a little getting used to. Cluster pays award wins when identical symbols are grouped together and touching, regardless of which reel they land on. Of course, since there are six reels providing symbols, expect a decent amount of money-making clumps per session.
Generosity is good for karma and this machine abides by giving a re-spin when coming close to winning, but actually hit two losing clusters in a result. Clusters are then locked in place and re-spin reels hopefully provide a symbol that completes a successful cluster, then paying out as normal.
Where to Play Shangri-La Slots Online
Since this is a NetEnt release, most of you will have many different options of where to play Shangri-La Slots online, however, you should put some thought into where would be the best before depositing. Not all operators are created equal and welcome bonuses differ greatly, not to mention customer service and rollover requirements.
Therefore, U.K. readers check out Shangri-La by visiting the virtual slot parlour at William Hill, due to their current Welcome Bonus and great customer service. Everyone else in Europe and Canada will want to find their inner peace by going to Wild to visit the fairytale land and get free dollars added to their bankrolls.
As per usual, anyone living in the United States cannot enjoy this title as NetEnt creations are currently not offered in this country.
