Wu Long Slots - Playtech
ABOUT WU LONG SLOTS
Launched in February 2014 in the midst of Chinese New Year celebrations, Wu Long is a five reel twenty-five payline video slot featuring an oriental theme. And while the game play is pretty straightforward, things get really exciting once players unlock the Dragon's Free Games that keep awarding free spins and stunning multipliers to help casino gamers drive up their earnings.
Don't worry if you have missed the Chinese New Year as the celebrations kick off as soon as you press spin, with temples, drums, cymbals, lanterns, fireworks, paper dragons, playing cards Jack, Queen, King, Ace and Chinese ladies dressed in traditional clothes are game symbols that appear on the reels to form those much desired winning combinations.
HOW TO PLAY
Playtech has simplified the game play by removing bet per line from the equation, meaning players only need to choose the number of paylines to be active and select preferred coin size before pressing spin, auto play or bet max. Simply use + and – buttons within 'Lines' and 'Line bet' to activate up to 25 paylines and choose coin value between $0.01 and $20. Turbo mode can also be activated, whilst pressing 'Info' will see you access the paytable.
Wu Long may only have one special symbol, represented by Paper Dragon, but the good news is this particular icon acts as both Wild and Scatter. The Paper Dragon will substitute for all other game symbols to form a winning combination, while it is also used to award Scatter payouts and trigger the Dragon's Free Games.
Since most of the action usually happens in the main game, Playtech didn't feel the need to include more than one bonus round, although once activated Dragon's Free Games will prove to be an embarrassment of riches, with more free spins and additional multipliers set to be won on each spin of the reels. Scatter payouts are another great way to land big wins and ensure you have turned a nice profit in the final count.
The long wait is finally over as the time has come to tell you more about the aforementioned bonus game. Simply receive three or more Paper Dragon Scatters anywhere on the game screen and Dragon's Free Games will be activated. You are initially awarded 12 free games that start at a x1 multiplier, but bear in mind that each Scatter appearing on the reels during the feature can increase the multiplier and award additional free games. Depending on the number of Scatter occurring on a single spin, you can receive up to 12 additional free games and up to x6 multipliers, and this can carry on indefinitely.
As you might have noticed already, everything revolves around the Scatter symbol, represented by the Paper Dragon. This particular icon is not only used to trigger the bonus round, but it also unlocks additional perks and benefits during the feature itself. On top of that, three, four and five Scatters appearing in any position will pay out the amount equal to 5x, 25x and 50x your total bet.
While the bonus round clearly gives the best chance of winning hefty payouts, big wins can also occur in the main game. Temple acts as the highest-paying icon, awarding 2,500 credits for five matching symbols on a payline, which translates to staggering $50,000 if you are betting max. Should the said combination occur during the Dragon's Free Games when the multiplier stands at x6, you will be paid no less than 15,000 coins.
