The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays

For a long time now, Net Entertainment teased us with the release of an extraordinary slot machine that shows the mystical Himalayan utopia in all its glory and invites players all over the world to gather around it and reach inner peace while being showered with sizeable wins and positive karma. The day has finally arrived and NetEnt’s The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays slot opened its gates letting people into its earthly paradise for a decent price in form of accommodating wagering limits.

The Swedish provider wants you to have an enlightening casino experience and an overflowing cash balance playing The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays at hundreds of online and mobile casinos. The latest addition to their Cluster Pays series boasts impeccable graphics and a harmonious atmosphere, as one might expect from a slot themed on the exotic Oriental Garden of Eden. The world where animal forms and spirits intertwine and a person achieves inner peace by becoming one with the universe – this is the world of Shangri-La. Described in James Hilton’s 1933 Lost Horizon novel for the first time, the legend of its existence continues to fascinate people to this day.  In The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays the exotic location is shown as a mystical valley where flowers grow, cherries bloom, purling waterfalls bring fresh air from high up in the mountains, and everything is peaceful, even the faces of animal characters on the reels. The slot benefits from 6 reels and 5 rows of symbols with features such as Free Spins, Sticky Re-Spins, Nudge Reels and Random Substitutions.

The Cluster Pays gameplay which had its debut with the Aloha! Slot now continues with The Legend of Shangri-La. There are no paying lines; instead, players are prompted to hit a minimum of nine of the same adjacent symbols in order to get a clustered payout. As mentioned, there’s more than one special feature to experience in The Legend of Shangri-La. During base game, special Substitution symbols will replace other symbols to generate the highest possible wins. Sticky Re-Spins appear randomly accompanied with symbols animations, and the Nudge feature is closely related to the Free Spins scroll symbol. When two Free Spins scroll icons land on a reel, and a third one lands to the right of them, it will be nudged back. Ultimately, the Free Spins symbols will initiate the free play round that takes place on an icy snow-capped mountaintop. Free spins are combined with random Substitution Wilds and include a flying ice dragon.

The Legend of Shangri-La slot with Cluster Pays is made in HTML5, which makes it equally optimised for desktop and mobile devices. The maximum win announced by the developer is a whopping amount of 100,000 coins, and the RTP is set at 96.59%. NetEnt’s CEO stated that the team is confident about bettors enjoying ‘this vibrant and spiritual world and its unique twists and turns.’ There seems to be no reason why they shouldn’t be enjoying it for years to come. The Legend of Shangri-La brings the paradise hidden from the modern man onto our screens and the riches of the mystic Orient into our pockets.
