Join a kung fu master on a quest for enlightenment (and of course a jackpot or two) in Shaolin Spin. Powered by iSoftBet, this 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot comes with expanding wilds and a bonus feature that offers up to 20 free spins. Play from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.
The visuals in Shaolin Spin have a strong Chinese flavour with the reels set against a black and red temple style backdrop – joining the Asian style A to 9 playing cards are a white heron, nunchucks, Shaolin temple, old master and a colourful dragon which is the top payer. Landing 5 of these in a winning combination will net you 20 times your total stake.
The black and white yin and yang symbol is the game’s wild – appearing only on reels 3, 4 and 5, it replaces every other symbol with the exception of the scatter. When the wild lands, it will expand in a cross shape to add up to 4 extra wilds onto the reels.
The kung fu warrior is the game’s scatter – land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels for a payout of 4, 6 or 10 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Spins feature and receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins. Furthermore, all wins during the feature will be boosted by a 3x multiplier and trebled.
As usual with slots from iSoftBet, Shaolin Spin looks great and comes with an excellent soundtrack – sharp eared listeners will recognise the theme tune from the classic Bruce Lee movie Enter the Dragon playing in the background.
This slot isn’t overloaded with features but the ones on offer are decent enough – they’re tricky to trigger though. That includes the standard wild as well as the free spins round. They can both be worth the wait though, especially the bonus round where the 3x multiplier can really help the free spins gather some momentum.
The martial arts theme is a popular one with slots developers but iSoftBet has delivered something fresh in Shaolin Spin – it’s combination of sleek visuals and volatile features makes it a playable and entertaining slot for martial arts lovers and armchair warriors alike. I also recommend iSoftBet’s other martial arts themed title, Red Dragon Wild, which is even better.
