Betsafe Casino is inviting players to take the road less travelled and head to the Himalayas in its latest slot release – The Legend of Shangri La: Clusters Pays.
Created by NetEnt, the game is scheduled for general release in a few days’ time but it can be played exclusively at Betsafe Casino right now. Anyway, it’s an unusual 6 reel game where winning combinations are created by landing clusters of at least 9 matching symbols.
That sounds like a lot. Helping you to achieve payout enlightenment are the 3 highest value animal guru symbols that can land 2 symbols high. Also helping to create those winning opportunities is the special substitution symbol. This can morph into adjacent symbols to create the best possible combination.
This Himalayan hideaway also comes with a trio of features. Land 2 distinct cluster combinations of the same symbol and you could benefit from a random substitution. This forms a link between the 2 groupings to create one single, much enlarged cluster.
Land 2 winless clusters of the same symbol and you’ll be in line for a respin. These continue until enough matching symbols have landed to create a winning cluster. Shangri La also offers 5, 6, 7 or 8 free spins. Between 2 and 6 substitution symbols can hit on each of these free spins. You’re guaranteed to win at least 10 times your total stake once the feature is triggered.
If you just missed out on triggering the free spins round by landing 2 scatters but whiffing on the third, you could benefit from a nudge. If there’s a scatter just off the reel set it can shuffle down to add the all-important third scatter and the free spins trigger.
This is a typically well designed NetEnt slot. There’s a serene feel to the sound and visuals. A tranquil valley and blossom trees lie in the background with a selection of fish, flower, dragonfly and butterfly symbols spinning around the reels.
The Legend of Shangri La Cluster Pays may look gentle but there’s plenty of action on offer here thanks to the unusual game engine and range of extras. Check out The Legend of Shangri La Cluster Pays slot review for full details.
