Mystery of LongWei
Mystery of LongWei is another Asian inspired video slot developed by iSoftBet.
Player is given 40 paylines on 5x4 grid. You can adjust coin value from 0.01 up to 1 euro which means that total bet range goes from 0.40 to the 40 euros per spin.
Design is simple but wonderfully done. The backdrop of the reels is filled with beautifully colored sky, mountains and Chinese temples. The animations of the flock of birds flying by and clouds gently moving between the mountains makes it look like something from a fairytale book. The reels are painted red and they certainly stand out against that dreamy backdrop.
Low-value symbols on this reels are represented by the standard K, A, Q, J, 10 and 9. Among the high value icons you’ll see symbols that are inspired by China like tiger, panda, koi carp fish, the lotus flower and golden vase.
The highest paying symbol is the Flaming phoenix. If you’re lucky enough to land 5 phoenixes on one of the paylines you’ll be rewarded with 25 times your total stake.
Mystery of LongWei has a Wild that can replace any of the symbols to form winning combinations except Scatter and Dragon symbol.
Scatter is represented by the pagoda, traditional Chinese house, and landing 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels will get you free spins.
3 scatters get you 10 free spins; 4 will allow you to spin the reels 20 times for free while 5 scatters will trigger 30 free spins. Unfortunately, the free spins can’t be retriggered but the colossal symbols do appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4.
Dragon Colossal Re-Spins Feature
The Dragon Colossal Re – Spins Feature is triggered by dragon symbol appearing on the first reel. When that happens the other four reels will get colossal symbols on them and will start spinning.
After each spin the dragon icon drops down by one space. As long as the piece of the dragon is still showing you will keep getting re-spins.
The colossal symbols that appear in Dragon Colossal feature are actually 3x3 symbols which are set on the reels 2, 3 and 4. They may help players in getting some big wins.
In a Nutshell
With so many Asian inspired theme slots it’s becoming quite difficult to stand out among all of them. iSoftBet did a decent job when it comes to that with Mystery of LongWei.
Yes, it’s a relatively simple game but the colossal symbols and the bonus features make it much more interesting. Bonus feature can be little bit hard to trigger but they are definitely fun.
Graphics are nicely done, colors are vibrant and animations in the backdrop of the reels are subtle but effective. This is not bad looking game and it has unobtrusive and traditional soundtrack which is why playing it would be a pleasure.
