Spectacular graphics are used in the Shaolin Spin slots game. The Asian culture influence is found in the music with drums and chimes. It could easily fit with a movie theme drama with the scatter symbol’s character engaging in bursts of karate moves. This part of the animation is awesome, although it is the same couple of moves. Additional animation is found each time the wild falls on the reels it twirls with different ying-yang designs. The animation goes further with wilds landing on one reel and spreading to three surrounding reels.
Pay lines are highlighted with gold bars and stars rotating around the symbols. The background consists of more Asian art and letters in gold tones. This includes the spin button which has a stationary ying and yang emblem. Bets correlate with increment of one cent to 10 cent that becomes 12.50 for the largest wager and 25 cents for smallest. There are five bet buttons to choose from before each spin. Once the auto spin is initiated, the same bet is used for all consequent spins. Auto spin is in a toggle fashion, which means one click triggers it and another turns it off.
The symbol for the wild is decorated with a black and white ying and yang emblem within a circle on a deep brown square. It substitutes for all symbols, but not the scatter. Each scatter is the young marital artist. It is worth multipliers of four, six, and ten times the wager. There are also 10, 15, or 20 free spins available with the multiplier feature. They are both awarded with three, four, and five symbols. A colorful dragon’s head is worth 50 dollars with five symbols. The only other human character is a gray haired Asian man valued at 20 dollars when five symbols are earned. A large oriental tower is worth 10 dollar for five icons. Two nun-chucks and a white dove finish the symbols and payout 4 dollars when five land on the reels. Three letters including a red A, yellow K, and purple Q are worth 2 dollars and 50 cents, while a green J, blue number 10 and golden nine are worth two dollars.
Wilds have to land on the last three reels to activate and spread to the other reels. It becomes an expanding icon to signify a winning spin while increasing payouts. There is an automatic three times multiplier with each win from a wild or scatter. Players receive winning spins anywhere scatters land in combination with other symbols. It takes awhile before the payouts start with less than generous payouts. Even when the largest bet is wagered, the winnings are not big. The bonus spins are also slow in coming with long stretches of play before they appear. Players have 243 ways to win with each spin as long as the symbols are consecutive and in the first three columns consecutive.
The action for this 20 pay line game is found in the sounds and animation of the wilds and scatters. Players will enjoy the reel aesthetics with the colors and design. The responsiveness of the software is in keeping with the Softbet reputation. There are no snags during play with settings being user-friendly to adjust the sound or go to the full-screen mode. This game is recommended for marital arts enthusiasts with the symbolism and young male character’s animated moves. A three out of five star rating is where this game comes in.
