Shangri-La In Online Slots


Shangri-La was introduced to the world in 1933 through a novel written by James Hilton titled Lost Horizon. It was a Tibetan paradise in the Himalayas where time slowed down to a snail’s pace and people lived almost forever. There are a couple of video slots at online casinos that recreate the magic of Shangri-La.

Paradise Found from Microgaming more closely represents Hilton’s novel. You can play it at online casinos like All Slots and Royal Vegas. The reels are set in a lush green valley with clear skies and snow-capped mountains in the background. The high paying symbols are thematic and include yak, Tibetan prayer wheel and cup filled with the elixir of life. The low paying symbols are the usual Microgaming playing card icons. The man is the scatter symbol and awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The flowering lotus is the wild symbol. In the base game it appears only on reels 1 and 5. When the lotus appears on reel 1 and the monastery appears on reel 5, the Wild Lotus Feature is activated. One of the symbols on reels 2, 3 or 4 is randomly turned into a wild lotus symbol. All payouts resulting from this change are awarded. This process is repeated ten times. Paradise Found online slot game has 20 selectable paylines set in the standard 5x3 reels structure. The maximum total bet per spin is 200 credits.

The Legend if Shangri-La is a Cluster Pays online slot from the portfolio of NetEnt. It is live at online casinos like Golden Palace. The slot machine is set in a 6x5 grid. There are no paylines as in normal slot games. Payouts are awarded by clusters of 9 or more like symbols. The symbols in a cluster have to abut horizontally or vertically to another like symbol. The high paying symbols are leopard, elephant and monkey presented in a serene manner. They also appear expanded over two cells. The low paying symbols are flower, butterfly, dragonfly and koi fish. The jade stone is the wild symbol. Two clusters of the same symbol may trigger the Random Substitutions feature. Wild symbols are added on the reals until a win is awarded. Two clusters of the same symbol may also activate the Stick Respins feature. These symbols are held fixed while the others spin again. There is a bonus feature that awards up to 8 free spins.
