    Thoughts about The Legend of Shangri-La Slot by NetEnt

    Before starting a journey on the path of enlighment, players are advised to set their betting range. Clicking on the “-+” adjusts the coin size which ranges from 0.01 to 0.2. By choosing the "Autoplay" option players can set the number of times they wish for the reels to turn without interruption, while the "Play" button is used to set the reels in motion after setting the bets.

    The Magic Medallion transforms into the adjacent symbol and is able to replace all symbols apart from the Scatter.

    The Guru symbols may appear stacked on all reels, but they may also cover only one position. Basically, a player wins if he lands 9 or more same symbols in a cluster.

    Remember Aloha Cluster Pays game? Well, this is another clone of that game, playing and paying in similar ways, but with slightly better features and marginally better payouts too, I would say. I may be wrong, no doubt, but that's what I have come to see and realised after playing this game a few times. Honestly speaking, I find that Aloha game a poor -paying game, although quite fun to play at first, but those low payouts soon caught my nerves and I lost my interest in the game in the end. This Shangri-La version may have the same effect in the long run, but I'm not waiting to find out! Hahaha.

    As most players would have known by now, the game pays whenever 9 or more same symbols form a winning cluster anywhere of the reels on a 6-reels 5-rows play area. This format has never been to my liking, so such games hardly ever keep my interest for long.

    Anyway, there are several features in the game that should keep any player's interest going. One of them is the green Substitution Symbol, with a Question mark in it. It's a Mystery symbol that can transform into any other symbol, except for the Free Spins symbol. Random Substitutions is another feature that can occur whenever 2 clusters of a same symbol do not form a winning combination, so additional same symbols are created by the substitution of one other symbol to create a win. In certain instances, a Sticky Respin feature may be awarded instead, with each new winning combination getting another respin, until no new wins are achieved.

    The high paying symbols, called the Guru symbols, can either be single or double sized symbols, including the Free Spins symbols too. All other symbols are single sized but are stacked on all reels. The Red Guru is the highest paying symbol, getting 30 of which would pay a nice 10,000x the line bet. Take note though - trying to get 30 of any same symbol is no easy task! Hehehe.

    There are no Wild symbols in the game, and the Free Spins Scatter symbols do not pay anything either. Getting 3, 4, 5 or 6 Free Spins symbols award 5, 6, 7 or 8 free spins, but are without any multiplier. If the final payout from the free spins is less than 10x the total bet, one additional free spin is awarded, just to break that 10x mark. This may look good, but is not really that worthwhile, winning wise. I mean, how much difference can a win of under 10x and one win of just over 10x ever make, right?

    Well, to like or not to like this Shangri-La Cluster Pays game is purely individual. Personally, it plays quite okay to me, but the paytable and the overall payouts from the game isn't my cup of tea - it certainly cannot make my mug of strong coffee, that's for sure! Hahaha.

    The Legend of Shangri-La Cluster Pays is a 6-reel, Cluster Pays slot powered by Net Entertainment. You can play this slot on all devices and benefit from the sticky re-spins, nudge reels and free spins feature. I hated aloha clusters pays and thought this game would fall in the same category, however this game seems to pay more, and the random and nudging features are good. Aloha just had a plain base game and free spins feature.

    The guru symbols appear stacked on the reels which helps. The red cat is the most lucrative symbol giving you 1,000 times your total stake for 30 or more on the reels. To win you need to land 9 symbols clustered together no matter where they land on the reels. There is a substitution symbol that substitute for any symbol to generate a win, should it make 9 or more clustered symbol then the substitution symbol will be revealed, if a win cannot be generated then the substitution symbol just stays in its form. The substitution symbol cannot reveal free spins symbol.

    3 or more dragon scattered symbol on the reels trigger the free spins feature. 3 symbols awards 5 free spins and more scatter symbols increase the amount of free spins. The max free spins that can be awarded is 8 for 6 scatters. When 2 scatters land on the reels and the 3rd one just below the bottom row or above the top row, the nudge feature kicks in and the reel will nudge to make the 3rd scatter visible making it easy to trigger the free spins.

    I like this game and it pays often compare to Aloha. At times I feel I can wager with this slot if necessary as the balance is steady or always in plus. The free spins feature pays mostly decent. I won x100 – x200 my bet a couple of times already, so I would say give it a try and see if it your cup of tea. I would give it a 6 out of 10 at least.

    All in all, The Legend of Shangri-La Cluster Pays looks superb and has the potential to pay out 1,000 times your stake on each spin/free spin. The key to winning big is the Substitution symbols in both the base game and Free Spins feature. I found it to be a medium variance offering which will surely take you on your path to enlightenment. Superb from NetEnt once again!
