Gameplay and Prizes
Manufacturer NetEnt has created a slot machine Legend of Shangri-La based on the popular fiction novel by James Hilton, published in 1933. The author created an artistic allegory of Shambhala – the history of a fictional country located behind the pass of Mount Shang. Here, the traveler finds the most valuable – the opportunity to know the world, knowing himself. This is a mystical territory where everything happens incredibly slowly, not as in ordinary life. The idea of such a quiet and cozy home for the human spirit is embodied in the original game concept.
The artists created the ideal image of a utopian world in which harmony and beauty triumphs. The back of the slot is the image of a lost valley, where trees grow with surprisingly delicate bright green foliage. The landscape becomes realistic thanks to the 3D format and animation that animates waterfalls, creates the illusion of water movement and the emotional reactions of the main character – a calm and wise Fox. He will lead the user into the ancient temple. The player will meet with teachers and mentors – zoomorphic deities that have reached nirvana. The elegant design of the video slot is complemented by a gentle melody that sounds in the background.
The gameplay is located below the drums and is presented with typical options. Regulators + – Level will help the player to determine the game levels, and Coine Value – with a bet. To play to the maximum, you need to use Max Bet, located to the right of the Start button, stylized as yin and yang. On its left is the AutoPlay option. Below the toolbar there is a line where game statistics are displayed. Here you can see the user’s balance (Cash), the denomination of credits put on the round (Bet), winnings (Win). At the bottom left is Playtable (І), as well as custom settings, equipped with interactive icons.
