Shen Long Mi Bao Slot Review
The mighty Dragon is awake and is welcoming all fearless gamers from across the globe in his mysterious temple. If you are hungry for Dragon riches, then you should accept his call and try out Shen Long Mi Bao, the latest addition to Booongo’s video slot portfolio. The five-reel, three-row video slot offers 10 fixed paylines that pay both ways and also offers expanding Dragon Wilds that come with respins. Land the Dragon Wild on one of the central reels to get your free respin. Visually impressive, the 2018 release is playable from £0.20 per spin.
The visuals are simple, but of high quality. Since we are talking about a mighty Dragon, who is, according to legends, a guardian of gold and vast riches, then it is no wonder that the symbols that populate the reels are so precious. Golden Coins and Golden Dragons with Diamonds lead the pack, while the low-value symbols are represented by five gemstones – Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Amethyst. The Dragon Head is the Wild that can expand and it will substitute for all regular symbols and also trigger respins. Unfortunately, there are no Scatters on the offer.
Gameplay is very simple, so even a mere beginner will be spinning the reels like a pro in no time at all. The Shen Long Mi Bao video slot features five reels, three rows and offers 10 fixed paylines, which pay both ways, so gamers can form winning combinations starting from the leftmost and from the rightmost reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Betting starts at £0.20, while the maximum possible wager cannot go over £100 per single spin. The control panel offers only a few options, including Bet, Autoplay, Paytables and the Spin button.
No Scatters means that there are no free spins on the offer, which will not satisfy most of our gamers. However, punters will get some free respins as the next best thing. First of all, you will have to land the Dragon Wild on one of the three central reels. If the landed Wild forms a winning combination, it will expand and cover the entire reel, activating a free respin. During the respin, the Wild remains locked on its position and it will possibly form a new winning combination. If another Wild is landed on central reels during the process, another respin will be triggered. Up to three consecutive respins are possible.
If we did our math right, gamers may pocket up to 300 times the bet in a single spin. For that to be the case, punters will have to fill all the cells with the Golden Coin symbol, which pays the most, 30 times the bet for five of a kind. The Golden Dragon with Diamonds will get you 15 times the bet for the maximum combo. Expanding Wilds and respins will help you land big wins for a price of a single spin.
Shen Long Mi Bao on Mobile
The Booongo product is playable across all devices, just like all the other video slots from their portfolio. This means that punters may enjoy the 2018 release and look for the lost Dragon riches from the comfort of their homes or on the go, whichever way they prefer more. The quality of the game and the exceptional visuals will secure them the same gaming experience on every device.
+ Respins with expanding sticky Wilds
+ Crisp visuals
+ Playable across all devices
– No free spins
– No multipliers
– Needs more high-value symbols
We will state at the very beginning of this section that the 2018 release is not the best Booongo has to offer to gamers. Truth being told, the visuals are very good and the soundtrack fits the theme perfectly. Repins with expanding sticky Wilds can get you lots of rewarding treasures. However, there is no Free Spins feature and no multipliers. The maximum possible payout is not that great, while there are only two high-value symbols. Not enough, in our humble opinion. Taking everything under consideration, the latest Booongo title will have a hard time standing out from the crowd.
