Mystery of LongWei takes you to the Silk Road to Asia. Created by iSoftBet, it’s a 5 reel, 40 payline slot that comes with traditional Chinese design and a couple of potentially exciting features. There are respins and free spins complete with colossal symbols that fill reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Play, on all devices, from between 40p and £40 per spin.

The design here is simple but rather nicely done. The regal looking red reels are set against a mountain palace backdrop. Joining the A to 9 playing cards are a range of objects and animals traditionally associated with China.

You’ll see a gold vase and koi carp, the lotus flower and panda as well as a tiger. The best paying symbol is the flaming phoenix – land 5 of these and you’ll pocket 25 times your total stake. There’s also a wild. It doesn’t offer any payouts but does replace everything bar the bonus and scatter. Mystery of Long Wei comes with 2 bonus features:

Dragon Colossal Spins feature – this is triggered by landing a dragon symbol on reel 1. You’ll see colossal symbols spinning around reels 2 to 5. Any dragons that land on reel 1 during these respins will reveal mystery symbols. Dragon symbols drop down 1 space after each respin. The respins continue as long as there’s a dragon on show.

Free Spins feature – land 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter on the same spin and your reward will be 10, 20 or 30 free spins. During the feature, the high paying symbols are colossal from reels 2 through to 5.

Mystery of LongWei is a relatively simple game. The design is in the middle of the pack and the base game action is a little vanilla. The colossal symbols make the respins and free spins far more interesting. We found them quite tricky to trigger though. We’d put the variance in the medium range with maximum wins of 400 times your stake on each spin/free spin.

With so many Chinese slots to choose from, it’s hard to stand out from the crowd. iSoftBet has made a pretty job of it with Mystery of LongWei. I do recommend you try other iSoftBet titles with Legend of Loki a superb option.
