Shanghai Lights Slot

Shanghai is a major shipping and trading city in China, but it also offers a highly entertaining nightlife. To experience it, you can play Shanghai Lights, an online slots game brought to you by Realtime Gaming (RTG) which will provide you with a range of bonus features boosting your winning chances. 

The game’s appearance is sleek and resonates with the theme of the game. An Oriental music score adds to the overall atmosphere created by flashy lights seen in the backdrop of the reels. Featuring 5 reels and 50 adjustable paylines, Shanghai Lights benefits from replicating Wilds, free spins and Super Spins while the top payouts stands at 50,000 coins.

You can play the game at up to 50 paylines activated. Choose a bet per line and you are good to go. If you don’t feel like spinning the reels manually, use the Autoplay feature and activate as many automatic spins as you like. You will land wins as long as you match at least three symbols on an active paying line left to right. The representatives of Shanghai elite deliver high-value payouts while the rest of positions are filled with playing card suit icons which are a nice solution for the game using such a theme.

During the base game Wild will appear on the reel 3 to complete your winning combinations. It will replicate to other positions on the reel and replace all regular symbols. Look out for coins as they stand for Scatter. You will need three or more Scatters to unlock the free spins feature awarding 5 free turns regardless of the number of the triggering Scatters. The feature can be activated up to 5 times and during it, Wild will land on the reels 3, 4 and 5 and double wins whenever it creates a winning combo. Once you play all 5 free spins, Super Spin Free Games will start. You are granted 3 Super Spins during which various special features will enhance your odds of winning. Which of them will be active depends on the number of Scatter wins landed during free spins. You can benefit from bigger wins thanks to the Shanghai Lights logo added to the reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, the reels 5, 4 and 3 going fully Wild and Scatter wins subject to a 5x multiplier. You can also win extra Super Spins whenever Scatter win is scored.

Enjoy your stay at the Pearl of the Orient while gambling with its elite for a chance of winning up to 50,000 coins in a single spin. With 50 paylines and replicating Wilds, you will land wins quite frequently and triggering the free spins feature will provide you with improved chances of winning thanks to additional bonus features included. Feel the atmosphere of Shanghai nightlife and prepare to win big with the RTG 2018 release available across all devices. Our rating: 85/100
