Focus on Shangri La
Shangri La is one of the more unique NetEnt slots, with its six-reel and five-row gameboard and innovative Cluster Pays game mechanic. There’s a raft of other special features too, such as sticky re-spins, reel nudges, random substitutions, free spins, and much more besides. This 96.59% RTP, low/mid volatility slot has a lot to offer for both experienced and new players alike!
Because there aren’t any set paylines in Shangri La, you can customize your stake with every single spin. There are ten different bet levels too, and you can modify your coin value from 0.01 to 50.00.
Gameplay of Shangri La
What is unique about Shangri La is that your aim is to connect matching symbols on your reels – that’s the basis of the Cluster Pays system.
Your payout increases depending on which symbol triggers the prize and how many of the same symbol you have, with nine or more in a cluster awarding a payout.
Winning Symbols on Shangri La
Shangri La is a slice of lusciousness, and so all of the winning symbols are reflective of this peaceful and spiritual ideal. There are butterflies and beautiful flowers, koi carp, and other creatures you might find in such a utopian landscape.
The bigger paying symbols are the three praying animals – the cat, the monkey and the elephant. These are expanded symbols, so they take up more than one position on your reels, and that leads to larger scale winning clusters being created.
There isn’t a wild symbol in Shangri La, although you can hit substitutions – this question mark will turn into a random symbol in the hope that a winning combo will be created.
Bonus & Free Spins
Occasionally, two clusters of the same symbols can lead to a sticky re-spin being awarded. Here, the symbols are locked in place for a free spin, and if another of the same symbol appears then the process continues – you can get up to 30 of the same icon filling your gameboard for Shangri La’s biggest payout.
The game also has its own free spins symbol, and if you can land three of this anywhere on your reels you will trigger a bonus of the same name. You can earn 5-8 free spins, with substitutions taking place after every turn.
