Shaolin Spin Slot
The Shaolin Spin slot is one which encompasses many aspects of the Far East. These include dragons, ancient buildings, doves, and the yin and yang symbols and Martial Arts. Interesting aspects to the slot include an original take on the wilds; a free spins round and the fact that you’ll have 243 ways to win when playing.
This slot has an excellent, crisp feel. The title of the slot is flanked by dragons on either side, with Oriental symbols and lettering on columns to either side of the slot. The symbols at the slot are backed by ornate golden symbols, making each stand out. The spinning gold disc appears in front of the scatter symbol and the spreading wilds really give the slot a highly professional look and you can’t help but be impressed. Even the playing card symbols work nicely, these once again ornate, the colours standing out nicely against the dark background. You’ll find a very suitable, slightly uplifting Far Eastern music track playing throughout.
Setup and Play for Shaolin Spin
This slot has your standard five reels, but differs from many by having 243 ways to win. You’ll need three or more symbols in a row to gain a win here, meaning that as long as a symbol appears in any position on the first three reels (or more) you are guaranteed a win – as opposed to the symbols having to be on a win line. These 243 win lines come at the cost of just 25 credits and you’ll choose both the coin value and the bet amount to set your stake for each spin.
The top paying symbol is the delightfully drawn blue and red dragon, which pays 500 coins for five in a row. The wise whited haired man pays 200 coins and the temple, the nunchucks and the dove pay out 100, 40 and 40 coins respectively for five in a row. The lowest paying symbols are the playing card symbols.
You might consider that some of these win amounts are relatively small in comparison to some other slots, and you’d be right. However, if you also consider that there are 243 ways to win, as well as the expanding wilds (explained next), you’ll find that wins come much more often than at other slots, and there’ll be many occasions when there are multiple wins at once.
The wild is the Yin and Yang symbol which will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. This symbol will now turn the symbols to the left and right wild as well and if possible will also turn the symbols above and below wild as well. This guarantees that a wild will now be on at least three wheels and with the 243 ways to win, you’ll know that if a symbol appears on each of the other two reels, you’ll be guaranteed a 5 in a row win.
There is also one other aspect to the wild symbol which makes it even more valuable. Should the wild appear on all five reels you’ll gain the top win of the game at 2,500 coins. The final symbol at the game is the Martial Artist. This is the scatter symbol and if this appears three or more times you’ll be taken to the free spins round.
Shaolin Spin Free Spins Round
Should you land the basic 3 scatters to land the feature you’ll have 10 free spins. However, each additional scatter will actually give an extra 5 spins. As well as the free spins you’ll also gain an immediate win of 4x, 6x or 10x your total stake based upon the number of scatters landed. The free spins round has an additional bonus in that all wins will be subject to a 3x multiplier.
Shaolin Spins Slot Conclusion
This slot by iSoftbet is certainly an interesting one. The 243 ways to win immediately gives the slot a unique feel and this is added to by the interesting use of the wilds. If you add in the free spins round with both a good number of free games and the 3x multiplier, you have a game which is very playable. However, for me, this isn’t the best of it. Graphically, this game is excellent – the animation is smooth, crisp and looks amazing and iSoftbet has to be applauded for this. This is an excellent slot all around.
