Shanghai Lights video slots by Realtime Gaming (RTG) whisks you off to the Far East, the theme of the game celebrates Shanghai’s entertaining nightlife. Shanghai is not only one of the largest cities in China, it’s also the country’s administrative, shipping and trading hub. The slots features 50 paylines that can be adjusted, 5 reels and pays a top non-progressive jackpot of 50,000x your stake.
The bonus modes are just as impressive, here you’ll find a free spins feature that awards up to 25 free spins, replicating wilds and a Super Spin feature. Although we haven’t played the slots we believe that the replicating wilds appear during the free spins and main game. All in all there are 3 bonus games that will keep you busy long into the night.
Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see Shanghai and the majestic Yangtze river. Paying symbols on the reels are 2 distinguished gentleman dressed to the nines, 2 beautiful girls, low value cards, dragon coins (scatters), wild and the Shanghai Lights logo incidentally it’s also the highest paying symbol. Payouts occur when you land 3 symbols of the same kind. Shanghai Nights offers players an average return percentage of about 96% or a house edge of 4%. For every $100 you spend on the game you’ll more or less get back $96. This slot can be played at any one of our top rated RTG Casinos.
Before you deposit decide on a bankroll and keep your average bet spin in line with it. If your bankroll is $150 your average bet per spin should be $1 or more. It gives you ample opportunity to trigger a bonus feature and to win some cash.
The wild symbol pitches only on reels 3, 4 and 5, it completes winning combinations when it substitutes the other symbols except the dragon coin scatters. The wild doubles all payouts (2x).
The free spins feature is played when 3 dragon coin scatters appear any position, for 3 scatters you’ll receive 5 free spins. It’s a free spins feature that can be re-triggered up to 5 times meaning that you could pocket as many as 25 free spins. Based on most RTG slots we’ve played the free spins feature is initiated around 120 spins maybe sooner. It gets better! Upon conclusion of the free spins the Super Free Spins mode is played.
Three Super Spins will be awarded with a myriad of upgrades, try to land as many scatter pays during the free spins in order to get the maximum wins during the Super Spins. Should there be no scatter wins during the feature the Shanghai logo pops up on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 offering some solid payouts.
A scatter payout will be added to the Shanghai Lights logo which transforms the 5th reels into a wild. If a player has 2x scatter pays an upgrade of 5x is on the cards and winning combinations gained with wilds will be tripled. Four and Five scatter pays transform reels 3 and 4 into wilds, now for every scatter pay that pitches during the Super Spins an additional Super Spin is added.
Shanghai Lights a medium to high variance slots offers a taste of what a luxurious night about town is in the Orient. The free spins and Super Spin bonus features are equivalent to a home run because the free spins can be re-triggered and the top cash prize that can be won during the Super Spins is a mammoth 50,000x your stake. The slots is ideal for high value players and a nice addition to an already cracking RTG slots library.
