About the Developer

NetEnt was established in 1996 and since then the company has risen to become one of the most popular online slot developers globally.

They’ve also attempted to enter regulated markets like New Jersey.

About the Game

The Legend of Shangri-La has a great visual appeal and is available in all the casinos. NetEnt has tried to create a sense of harmony and enlightenment in the theme where punters are transported to a tranquil mountain where you're accompanied by a monk. Green valleys and cherry blossoms are part of the backdrop and game symbols include dragonflies, koi carp, flowers, butterflies and a trio of guru symbols including the elephant, cat, and monkey.

•Guru symbols- The guru symbols usually appear as stacked symbols on the reels. The cat is the highest paying symbol which rewards 1,000x your total bet if you land 30 or more of them on the reels. This means you can win when you form a cluster made up of 9 or more symbols.

•Substitution symbol- The substitution symbol transforms into the symbol bordering it except the Free Spins symbol and gives you a winning combination.

•Random Substitutions feature- This feature is activated when you land at least 2 matching clusters of the same symbol in the main game. The clusters must be made up of at least 4 matching symbols each. When the feature is active, 1 Substitution symbol is added onto the reels to help you form more wins.

•Sticky Re-Spins feature- This feature is played when at least 2 clusters of the same symbol (which haven’t formed a win) appear on the reels. The symbols will stick in place during re-spins. The re-spins will continue until there aren’t any newer sticky symbols appearing.

•Free Spins feature- The free spins are definitely this slot’s highlight. When the round is activated, you get 3 or more Free Spin icons. 3, 4, 5 or 6 free spin symbols reward 5, 6, 7 or 8 free spins. If you land 2 Free Spin symbols, you trigger the Nudge Reel feature. Here you can land the 3rd Free Spin symbol on the reels and use it to activate the Free Spins feature. Once it’s active, random Substitution icons are added onto the reels and removed on every free spin. If you form a win less than 10x your total bet from this feature, you benefit from an extra free spin.

The Verdict

The Legend of Shangri-La slot looks great and can pay out up to 1,000x your bet on each spin or free spin. Your key to winning big is landing Substitution symbols during the main game and the Free Spins feature. It’s an enjoyable and among the latest casino games with a beautiful theme that’s been well executed. The variance sits in the middle. Also make sure to check out The Lab!
