Secrets of Shanghai slot - Free Play - Game Review
Secrets of Shanghai is a video slot from a game studio known as Section 8 Studios, although they’re also known as Random Logic, and 888 Holdings - and if you hadn’t figured from the name, the game developer is 888’s in-house game team, responsible for making and releasing exclusive slots for casino’s running on the 888 platform.
Load up the game, and you’ll find yourself able to explore Shanghai, in an intuitive and exciting way - and the game’s graphics and visuals are spectacular, offering players a dynamic and highly-exciting gameplay experience.
The symbols on the reels are varied, and include playing card values, including 10, jack, queen, king, and ace - which act as the game’s lower-paying symbols - and the game specific symbols are the higher-paying ones, and include Fireworks, a Tall Tower Block, and the “Secrets of Shanghai” symbol, which acts as the game’s wild.
The first feature is a free-spins bonus, and in order to land this, you simply need to hit 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view.
Once you manage to do so, you’ll be awarded either 10, 20, or 30 free-spins (10 are awarded for landing 3 scatter symbols, while 20 and 30 free-spins are awarded for landing 4 or 5 scatter symbols respectively), and during the free-spins, the wild symbol becomes stacked across all five of the reels, meaning - technically - it’s possible to land a full screen of wilds!
It’s possible to re-trigger more free-spins by landing yet another 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view, and if you manage to do so, you’ll be awarded yet another 10, 20, or 30 free-spins - with no cap on the maximum number of times you can re-trigger the feature!
Pros: Secrets of Shanghai is well-made, easy-to-play, and relaxing - and you’ll soon see why Section 8 Studios have become such a well-known figurehead in the online gambling sphere.
Cons: The game isn’t mobile-optimised, meaning you’ll need to play from your Desktop PC or Laptop.
