Shanghai Lights is a slot game that’s going to take us back to China with a focus on Shanghai. The overall theme is one whereby we focus on the world of entertainment and the nightlife in the city, so that explains the use of the word ‘lights’ in the name. However, will this slot be full of glitz and glamor with elaborate prizes available to us?
Overview of Shanghai Lights
The game comes with five reels while it also provides us with 50 paylines, so we kick things off by knowing there are various ways in which you could land a winning line. The backdrop to the reels is the city itself while the reels are also slightly transparent to reveal more of the background. For the symbols, then lookout for a couple of gentlemen, a couple of women, the Shanghai Lights logo, dragon coins, and card suits that act as the lowest symbols on the slot.
How to Play Shanghai Lights
In order to play, you need to go ahead and arrange your bet. You do this by first of all selecting your coin size followed by the number of coins you wish to bet per line, and finally the number of paylines. This is all done by clicking on the plus or minus sign beside the relevant box to alter the value. Once you’re happy, hit the spin button to see how the reels land.
Bonus Features for Shanghai Lights
This game does come with both wilds and scatters, so it does include some bonus features to help keep us busy and entertained. In this instance, the wild is represented by the Shanghai Lights logo but it’s only going to appear on reels 2, 3, or 4. When it does, and when it then leads to a completed winning line, then the payout is doubled.
The game does also have a scatter symbol, and in this instance, it’s the dragon coin that is the symbol to look out for. This is when you can trigger the free spins mode, but you need to land at least three of them for this to happen. For three, you will be rewarded with five free spins with that number climbing for four or five scatters. This bonus feature can be re-triggered up to 5 times, but there’s more.
After the free spins, you can enter into what they call the ‘Super Spin’ mode, where there are various ways in which you can land some wins. Sometimes, it could be an expanding wild on reel 5, but it certainly adds some intrigue to the game.
Betting and Payouts for Shanghai Lights
The bet range for this game is massive. In fact, you can end up spending up to $250 per spin if you place the maximum bet. However, coins start as low as $0.01, so you could play all 50 paylines for $0.50. The top jackpot is 50,000x your initial coin, so that could potentially mean $1,250,000 if you strike it lucky.
Shanghai Lights does at least try something different when it comes to the super spin mode, but aside from that it’s the graphics that make this stand out from the rest. It’s slick and smooth while it does offer reasonable prizes if the symbols land your way.
