Shanghai Rose Slot
Shanghai Rose is a slot which is all based around one beautiful lady, who frequents the reels in three different poses.
Firstly you’ll see her wearing an elegant black cheongsam with a pink rose attached, Rose fixing her ear-rings in the pose.
Secondly you’ll see the charming lady in pink attire, smiling in the picture, with a small cup of tea on the table in front of her.
Finally you’ll see her standing peeking out from behind a curtain, wearing a very colorful national costume, a diamond tiara in her hair. This Asian themed slot makes use of the Super Stacks system where you’ll find one particular symbol dominating the reels, while multipliers will head your way when landing certain symbols in a row.
Shanghai Rose Slot Gameplay
Every time you achieve a win with any of the female character symbols, you’ll find a small animation within the symbols; this adds some nice depth to her character and brings this slot to life. Joining Rose on the reels are two flowers, each in a different shade of blue. The accompanying Far Eastern soundtrack to the slot adds nicely to the theme.
The Super Stacks format is an interesting one which promises some really big winning spins, where a large number of pay lines will all pay out at once. Before every spin, one of the symbols will be picked at random and this will now fill all of the mystery symbol slots. This will mean that the randomly picked symbol can fill much of the reels at times, sometimes stacked entirely over a number of reels – meaning the majority of (or all of) the pay lines will land a win.
Wins at this slot come along when you can land three or more consecutive symbols in a row from left to right on a pay line. The three images of Rose are the highest paying standard symbols at the game – her wearing the black cheongsam worth 200 coins for the maximum 5 in a row, the other two images both worth 100. The two flowers both pay 50 coins for the maximum five, while the playing card letters A, K, Q and J also frequent the reels, as well as the number 5. When gaining a win with any image of Rose, or either of the flowers, you’ll gain an immediate multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x applied to the win – really enhancing those payouts.
Also on the reels, you’ll find a wild symbol, this represented by a green colored Oriental style hat, with a design featuring many pink and red flowers. This wild will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter and as an added bonus you’ll find that it is also the highest paying on the reels, worth an impressive 1,000 coins when landing five in a row.
Take away the beautiful images, the flowers and the costumes, and the slot is something of a standard one, with the usual 5×3 configuration. The game has 40 pay lines in total, although you do have the option of playing just 30, 20, 10 or even just a single line. The stake for each of these lines ranges from just 1c, all the way through to $10. Handy options at the slot include auto play, where you can set the slot to run for 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 spins and the ‘replay’ button which you can use to view any spin over and over again.
Shanghai Rose Bonus Feature
The feature of the slot is a free spins round which is activated by landing the scatter symbol completely on reels 2, 3 and 4 – this being possible when the scatter is selected as the Super Stacks symbol. You’ll have 8 free games, but at the start you’ll choose one of the scatters to reveal either one of the three images of Rose, or one of the two flowers. These will now be the Super Stacked symbol throughout the feature, promising those bigger payouts with the multipliers attached – making for a potentially excellent slot bonus round.
Shanghai Rose Conclusion
Many slots in the industry today are all-action affairs, with bold, flashy graphics and high tempo sound. Shanghai Rise takes a more gentle approach, the combination of Rose and the flowers, giving the slot a more relaxed and easy feel. This, in combination with the slightly unique gameplay, makes for a slot that will certainly appeal to a large number of players.
