Shangri La Slot – Base Gameplay

Shangri La is a regular 5×3 reel slot that uses 15 fixed pay lines set in a beautiful Eastern Asian adventure setting, with the reels made up of various exotic animal and the highest paying adventurer wild symbol.

There are plenty of different bonus modes on offer, and these are all initially triggered by landing 3 or more the special scatter symbols, with a special “Added Scatter” feature also on offer, and extra wilds being randomly added to the reels.

The features triggered from the scatters can include a regular Free Spins mode, Super Free Spins Mode, Trail Bonus round, and a Treasure Chest Picking round.

The best results from our playtests are definitely the Super Free Spins Mode.

Overall Thoughts

Shangri La slot is one of the better releases from Nextgen gaming in the last year, the graphics and animations are all very well done and there is a broad range of bonus rounds and mini-features that keep the gameplay quite interesting.

In our playtests, it’s quite apparent that the Super Free Spins Mode is the best bonus that can be randomly awarded, with wins well over 100x stake achieved and re-triggers possible too, with the Chest Picking bonus being the worst (15x Stake max win).

The novel “added Scatter feature” is a very nice touch, awarding bonuses when you thought it was just a 2 scatter-tease on the reels.

Overall a much better release from Nextgen and worth a play or two.
