Review of Shangri-La Cluster Pays

Shangri-La Cluster Pays takes the whole new ‘cluster-pays scene’ into a new level with this slot game created by world famous casino games provider, NetEnt. The theme of this game exudes fantasy and beauty, with the theme being oriental with a tinge of imagination this was easy to play, and easier to get addicted to.

The music and the soundtrack is most definitely one of the biggest factors in Shangri-La Cluster Pays, as it is very calming with the faint singing of the crickets along with the oriental drumming, it creates a fantastic atmosphere. There are some very beautiful symbols throughout the game, including vivid green butterflies, a mystical monkey, bright pink flowers, dragonflies and even some Koi fish.

Everything goes together very well and seems to be extremely thought out

There are also some irresistible in-game features which create even more of an exciting slot game such as a Free Spins feature and even a Random Substitutions feature. This will be the second cluster pay slot game created by NetEnt, because if you remember the first one was Aloha! Cluster Pays, which was a very summer inspired Hawaiian themed game. It was most definitely one of our favourites, and now we Shangri-La Cluster Pays which is just as exciting, however with a very different theme.

How To Play

The layout of Shangri-La Cluster Pays is very similar to Aloha! Cluster Pays as you may have assumed, basically it features 6 reels, with no actual paylines. The way in which you can produce a winning cluster is by having matched a cluster of 9 or more symbols in the game during a spin.

One of the most attractive elements of this game will have to be the background

Straight away you will see a beautiful bright pink cherry blossom tree, along with a calming garden background. Before you do begin your spins, you should make sure that you adjust your betting limits. The minimum bet that you can place in this video slot is £0.10, and the maximum is £200, so be sure to select the amount you wish and off you spin into this oriental paradise!

Random Substitutions Feature

If you happen to win with a minimum of 2 clusters of the same symbol landing during the base game then you will trigger the Random Substitutions feature. When this feature triggers, 1 substitution symbol will be added to the reels which will give you the 9 symbol cluster wins that will help you win!

Keep in mind that when you get the triggering cluster symbols, these must have 4 of the same symbol in each of the clusters in order to trigger this.

Free Spins Feature

When you get 3 or more of the Shangri-La Free Spins symbols during the main game, you will be rewarded with Free Spins. Whether you end up getting 3, 4, 5, or even 6 Free Spin symbols, this will get you 5, 6, 7, or 8 Free Spins. Another exciting element of this feature is the fact that you can activate the Nudge Reel feature which means that the 3rd Free Spin symbol can be nudged back onto the reels in order to trigger the Free Spins feature.

Once this feature is triggered, random substitution symbols will be added and removed during each Free Spin, and the reason for this is that these symbols will help you to create winning clusters and combinations which in turn equals more wins. If you win less than 10 times your total stake from the Free Spins feature then you will win 1 extra free spin in order to help give that extra little boost!

Sticky Re-Spins Feature

The Shangri-La Sticky Respins feature can be played when there are at least 2 non-winning clusters of the same symbol appearing anywhere on the reels. These specific symbols will stick in place with the others re-spinning, and they will continue until there are no other Sticky symbols appearing.


All in all I really feel like this is a better version of the Aloha! Cluster Pays slot game, and yes even though it is a completely different genre and style, I prefer the layout and theme of Shangri-La Cluster Pays.

If you have been on the lookout for a slot game to transition you from the summer months to the winter months, then Shangri-La by NetEnt is most definitely a game you should have a few spins on.
