What is this mobile slot about?

Time to enter a mystical, harmonious valley where you’ll dream away the day. Time to enter the Shangri La mobile slot.

NextGen love creating fantasy slots; why their Xing Guardian game came out only a few month before this Shangri La one, and you can certainly see the influence.

It’s no bad thing; there’s something wonderfully beautiful about dreaming of far away exotic eastern lands, full of lotus blossoms and wild creatures.

Lots of wilds and lots of scatters

The main appeal of this 15 payline 5 reel Shangri La slot is that after any spin you can get a whole load of scatters and wilds.

Which isn’t as exciting as it sounds, as it just means this is a phone slot with lots of scatters and wilds.

The bright side is that the bonus features show up often namely:

  • 8 normal free spins
  • 12 super free spins (where you are guaranteed extra wilds, and expanded wilds)
  • Chest click me bonus where you can win up to 15x your total bet
  • Trail click me bonus where you can win up to 100x your total bet

It certainly keeps things interesting and keeps the flow of the this Shangri La casino game flowing.

Yet you never quite feel like you’ll reach Shangri La

Many NextGen slot games have a habit of being fast paced, with plenty of features to keep you busy.

And this Shangri La video slot is no different; it kept us busy, and we even hit enough 60x to 80x our bet wins to get the occasional thrill.

Yet the theme didn’t quite capture the adventure or the imagination, and it’s hard to keep the excitement levels up when only 2 of 4 bonuses give you decent returns… sometimes.

However, don’t dismiss this Shangri La slot for Android and iPhones. You might never reach your happy place, but you’ll definitely have fun trying.

In-game bonus features

Wild and Extra Wilds: The girl adventurer symbol is wild in this Shangri-La phone slot, and substitute for all symbols except scatter.

Better yet, she comes with a 2x multiplier, as standard, and the game can randomly decide to just drop extra wilds on screen.

However she only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.

Wild Reel Feature: After any spin, reels 2, 3 or 4 can be chosen to have a fully expanded wild on screen.

Scatters and Free Spins: At any point during the game, extra scatters can randomly appear.

But 3 is all you need to active the bonus game feature, where the magical artifact will randomly grant you one of the following slot bonuses:

  • Free Games: 8 free spins where you are more likely to get wild reels
  • Super Free Games: 12 free spins where you are guaranteed wilds and wild reels on every spin
  • Chest Bonus: A click me game where you can win up to 15x your bet
  • Trail Bonus: a spin the wheel trail bonus (a little like in the slot Rainbow Riches), where you win prizes as you land on bet multipliers. The highest of these is 100x your bet.

Closing thoughts

This Shangri La slot on mobile should have gotten a better slot review; it's got a decent fantasy Asian theme, lots of features, and the occasional big wins.

Yet it didn't quite capture out hearts, maybe because whilst we were spinning we couldn't help but think about how the free spins in King Kong slot was better, or how beautifully unique the Great Wild Elk fantasy slot theme was.

That's the problem when you create so many great slot games, after a while players will start comparing them to your best.

Still the Shangri La slot game is nothing if not true to its inspiration: a happy, adventurous game, filled with plenty of earthly treasures.
