With 6 reels and cluster pays, it’s clear that Shangri-La: Cluster Pays is anything but straightforward! As the next in NetEnt’s highly respected Cluster Pays series, the extra features alone are well worth your time.
The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays is a bit different to your usual straightforward slot: for one thing, there are no traditional paylines, and the game is played instead on ‘Cluster Pays’ – that is, you win on a cluster, not a payline.
The game itself is pretty straightforward to play: simply:
Here’s where it gets weird. There are six rows and several different symbols, which take up several of each row’s space.
♦ Wild: or, as they’re known, ‘Substitution symbols’: green dome with a question mark
♦ Scatter: Mountain scene with dragon
♦ High value symbols:
♦ Lower value symbols:
In this slot, the larger the cluster, the bigger the win. A cluster qualifies as 9 or more symbols banded together – and don’t forget, those 2-row Guru animals count as 2 symbols each!
If you get really lucky you’ll spin 9+ of the Cat Guru, which is worth up to 10,000 coins. Not bad at all. With a payout of 96.59%, this is a medium variance game – and one which looks exciting (but you know, chill) to play.
This is one of the most feature-packed online slots we’ve ever seen: if you’re a fan of special features, The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays will definitely not disappoint you!
One thing you’ll instantly notice about The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays slot is how stunning the background is – beautifully rendered scenes of Asian-style palaces, sun-dappled and snow-drenched hills (depending on the game in play) will amaze you. The cherry blossom tree is a lovely little touch too.
Soundtrack-wise, it’s all bells and jingles, similar to a Far-Eastern fight movie. The music is actually a little tense – but the Monk standing on the sidelines will interject some interesting noises of encouragement. You’re also likely to enjoy the jingling noises of when you land a cluster, as well as the fiery ball engulfing the screen and accompanying triumphant music as you win in any given extra feature.
The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays is a funny, but very exciting little slot. Yes, it’s just a bit different to what you may be used to, but trust us – you’ll want to try this one out for yourself. It’s probably ore suited to slightly more regular slots players, as all of the bells, whistles and, well, cluster pays, will certainly confuse a newbie player.
