The Mystery of Long Wei draws its inspiration from oriental legend. It’s unclear whether there actually is a mystery of Long Wei, or whether this is purely a fictional representation, but no matter – the theme is only the beginning, with this attractive online slot from the developers at iSoftBet.
The reels are pitched against a mountainside setting, with what looks to be a palace nestling behind the main game board. The graphics are well realised, with impressive fine detail throughout the game, carrying over into the reel symbols involved in the main game action.
There are five reels on the main board, standing four reel positions high. Here you’ll find a new selection of value symbols with every spin, alongside several bonus features which can be triggered in the game from time to time.
The symbols are all appropriately themed, and include a lotus flower, a panda, a tiger, a golden vase and a phoenix rising from the flames. These symbols find their position alongside high card symbols, which occupy the lower value positions on the board. The aim of the game is to match symbols across any of the 40 supported paylines, which will result in a combination win according to the symbol value on the paytable.
With 40 paylines, players can bet from as little as 1p per line – or 40p per spin. This ranges up to £40.50 at the top end, so there’s plenty of room for players looking to up the ante. The jackpot stands at 500x, which is pretty decent for a non-progressive slot of this kind.
RTP veers towards the generous side, in keeping with other slots from iSoftBet. In this case, Mystery of Long Wei offers players a stab at a 97.01% return to player, much higher than you can find in comparable games. This means the house edge is lower than on some other, very similar slots titles, which is an extra advantage for the player.
In terms of additional features, Mystery of Long Wei also has several to offer.
The wild symbol is the first feature symbol you’ll probably come across. It’s actually a drum, although this isn’t obvious at first glance, but you’ll know it by the WILD label across the symbol. This works in the usual way, substituting any other symbols so you can complete paylines more easily. It will also extend paylines that run through it, by acting as if it was another matching symbol. The only symbols the wild doesn’t substitute for are the dragon and temple bonus symbols.
The dragon symbol is a bonus symbol when it appears on reel 1. There’s also the temple symbol, the game’s main free spins bonus symbol. Land three, four or five of these symbols to trigger the free spins bonus feature.
Bonuses & Jackpots
The dragon bonus symbol triggers a bonus feature known as Dragon Colossal Spins. When the symbol falls on reel one, players are awarded free spins until the symbol leaves the reels, descending one reel position with each spin. During these spins, players can land huge 3×3 blocks of symbols across the internal reels, which can make it much easier to land paying combination wins.
The temple symbol triggers a free spins round, where players are immediately awarded free spins when they land three or more of these symbols. During this round, the colossal symbols are active, although the spins themselves cannot be retriggered during the feature.
