There’s no real mystery here: iSoftbet have created a truly brilliant game in this Mystery of Long Wei mobile slot.
We know right now that many people are going to say that this Mystery of Long Wei slot doesn’t deserve it’s 5 stars. And maybe it doesn’t but when we were going through our notes we couldn’t come up with a single downside.
This is a fairly volatile iSoftbet machine so be prepared and be careful with your budget. But that’s all high variance slots.
Otherwise what you have here is a beautiful Far East game set high in the mountains, as you spin 5 reels and 4 rows full of beautiful (if a little generic) oriental symbols.
You know the ones: the panda, the tiger, the koi, the lotus blossom… it’s a theme that has been done better before (see Si Xiang by Iron Dog) but is still beautiful here.
There are two ways to get mega symbols and the bigger wins in this 40 payline slot review.
The first is the dragon colossal spins – a dragon symbol on reel one will then give you re-spins. This dragon on reel 1 will then fall down a row and give you a re-spin.
That re-spin will then give you a mega symbol that stands 4 by 4 on reel 2 to 5, and the Dragon can become any other symbol, including a wild.
Mostly that dragon will fall for one or two re-spins and you might get nothing. But it comes along often enough that you don’t mind because when one of those mega symbols hit, it’s an absolute pleasure to watch.
Strangely enough, not as much fun as the dragon colossal spins. Mostly because you hit 3 scatters and 10 free spins, and you do get mega symbols.
So why isn’t it as exciting? Well, mostly because the colossal symbols here are 3×3 instead of 4×4 and still only show up on reels 2 to 5 – unlike in Spinata Grande slot where they show up all over the place in all sort of sizes.
That means you get one big symbol at a time, but not covering the whole 4 reels of this Mystery of Long Wei game. Don’t get us wrong, it’s good fun.
We love the fact you get two colossal symbol features which is why we gave this a 5-star review.
In short play this iSoftbet slot, because it’s pretty, it’s fun, and it’s got lots of big bold symbols and big bold wins.

Wilds: The wild symbol can replace all other symbols except scatter and dragon to form a winning combination on this 40 payline slot game.
Dragon Colossal Spins: Any dragon symbol on reel 1 triggers re-spins.
This Dragon symbol on reel will then turn into any other symbol, including the wild, whilst the other 4 reels spin with mega symbols that cover a 4x4 space.
This Dragon symbol will then drop by one, and give you another re-spin, until it falls off at the bottom of reel 1.
Sometimes you can capture more than one dragon symbol during your re-spin. In which case, this feature ends when all dragon symbols have dropped off the bottom.
Scatters and Free Spins: catch 2, 3 or 5 temple scatter symbols to trigger 10, 20, or 30 free spins, respectively.
During the free spins, the high paying symbols will now all be mega symbols that take up a 3x3 space anywhere in reels 2 to 5.
Free spins cannot be re-triggered.
In our hearts we are not sure this Mystery of Long Wei mahine will last the ages.
So perhaps we should have given it 4 stars because with a fairly simple theme, from a mid-level provider, it may be forgotten in a couple of months.
Which would be a shame because this volatile video slot game is beautiful and has some crazy big re-spins and free spins full of mega symbols.
Certainly done better than in Asgardian Stones slot by NetEnt, and that's saying something.
