Yggdrasil Gaming decided to use one of the most famous Chinese folklore stories called The Legend of the White Snake as a theme for their latest video slot.
The legend is also known as Madame White Snake and it is a wonderful story involving magical powers, love, hatred, jealousy and combat.
In this tale the White Snake Spirit manages to transform into a beautiful woman that eventually falls in love with Xu Xian, the boy that accidentally gave her immortal pills at the Broken Bridge.
Thanks to some outstanding graphics and a beautiful orient soundtrack, Yggdrasil succeeded in creating an entertaining video slot that completely follows the theme.
It seems that Yggdrasil Gaming was more than satisfied with the success of their Monkey King slot, since the company decided to develop a new product based on ancient Chinese mythology. The company is well-known for their unique video slots that offer loads of action and some cutting edge graphics.
Even though Yggdrasil was founded in 2013, they are growing rapidly and delivering quality products, which attract more and more gamers every day. This is the main reason Yggdrasil was awarded software rising star at EGR B2B Awards in 2015.
How To Play It
All the important characters from the legend are presented as symbols in the Legend of the White Snake Lady slot. You will get the chance to meet Bai Sushen, the White Snake Lady, her friend Xiaoqing, the Green Snake Lady, Lu Dongbin, one of the eight immortals who sold the immortal pills to Xu Xian.
The boy who fell in love with the White Snake, as well as Fahai, the tortoise spirit who transformed into a Buddhist Monk and tried to destroy the White Snake Lady. You will also see the Broken Bridge and the Jinshan Temple where the White Snake Lady was imprisoned.
The 2016 release is a win-all-ways, five-reel slot where it is possible to land winning combinations both from left to right and from right to left. The rules of the game are quite simple, the betting is fixed on 25 coins per spin and all you need to do is set the coin value that goes from $0.01 to $5 and start spinning the reels.
The minimum wager you can place is $0.25, while the maximum is $125. Autoplay offers an infinite number of automatic spins, with the option to stop the mode at any time.
Even though Yggdrasil Gaming got us used to some action-packed video slots in the past, unfortunately, this is not the case with the Legend of the White Snake Lady slot, since it offers a single additional feature involving the Wild symbol. Apart from substituting all other symbols, the Wild symbol is crucial for triggering free re-spins.
The Wild symbol can only be landed on reel 3 and will award gamers with a free re-spin every time it appears on the central reel, remaining locked on its position during the re-spin and, hopefully, helping gamers form some rewarding winning combinations.
You can win as much as three free re-spins, but you need to land three Wild symbols on the central reel in order to win it.
An interesting addition to the 2016 release is the fact that every symbol pays the same number of coins once you managed to land a five-of-a-kind combination. All symbols will pay 2,500 coins for the maximum combo, except the White Snake Lady symbol, which is the highest paying symbol in the Yggdrasil Gaming product, offering 25,000 coins for five of a kind combination that does not involve a Wild symbol.
Due to the fact that this is a win-all-ways game and that it is possible to land winning combination both from left to right and vice versa, you can expect some hefty payouts, especially if you land many five-of-a-kind winning combinations.
Yggdrasil Gaming proved once again that they are outstanding when it comes to creating video slots that house lovely graphics and beautiful soundtracks. However, it seems that this 2016 release is just a pretty face, since the game does not offer much when it comes to gameplay.
A single bonus feature that is not triggered that often makes playtime quite monotonous after a while, so action junkies will be far from satisfied. Even though this is a win-all-ways slot, you will not land as many winning combinations as you hope.
However, if you are patient enough, you might win some lucrative payouts, due to the fact that all symbols pay the same for the maximum combination.
