A Panda Themed Slot with Added Respins
A trip to the ‘China Shores’ is certainly recommended for you panda fans out there. In the China Shore slot machine, a panda acts as the wild symbol and land a win with it and the much-loved animal will spin around with delight. This is not the only spinning that goes on in this Far Eastern themed slot. The scatter symbol can land you 15 free spins on every win line in the game – which can make for a lot of spins.
The game uses the ‘Action Stacked Symbols’ system throughout, where one symbol can dominate the reels. This makes for some big winning spins and when the scatter is that chosen symbol, get ready to see those coins come rolling in.
The Base Game with Added Stacks
In China Shores slots there are a number of adjacent (or stacked) symbols on every reel which are randomly assigned with one random symbol for each spin. This random symbol can be any of the standard symbols in the game, as well as the scatter symbol. This can lead to spins where the chosen random symbol can fill much of the reels, paying out wins on several lines at once.
This game has a total of 30 win lines and pays from left to right. The highest paying symbol in the game shows an ancient Chinese inscription in gold on a red background. Land these five times in a row and you’ll win 1,000 coins. An impressive golden tortoise is next on the pay table and is worth a max win of 500 coins. A blue vase with a gold trim and a Chinese lantern each have a top pay out of 250 coins.
At the low end of the pay scale, you’ll find the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. These are headed up by the Ace and the King, which pay 150 coins as a top prize. The max win for the 9, 10, Jack and Queen is 100 coins.
Pandas Go Wild
The panda symbol is the wild and will substitute for every other symbol apart from the scatter. This wild only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Land a win using the wild and the panda will start spinning – he is one happy panda!
China Shores Free Spins Feature
The scatter symbol in China Shores free slot game shows the famous Yin and Yang symbol. Unlike usual scatters, to activate the feature you’ll need to line up 3 or more in a row on a win line. This has its advantages however. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters in a row and you’ll win 8, 10 or 15 free spins respectively. These spins are awarded on every win line. So, for example, if you were to hit five scatters in a row on 3 win-lines, you’d have a total of 45 spins. It is possible to find yourself with 450 free spins if the scatters fill all five reels. This can happen when the scatter is the chosen random symbol under the ‘Action Stacked Symbols’ system.
While playing the free spins, any win will be doubled. You can also retrigger the free spins. In an interesting and unique move, you can opt to take the ‘Balance of Fortune’. This is a cash sum offered to you instead of playing the free spins. This might not the most exciting option, but if you want a solid cash amount, or are stuck for time, it might be ideal.
China Shores is an online slot played against the backdrop of a dense, bamboo filled setting with hills in the background. In fact, there isn’t a single shore in sight. The scene changes to a celebration when you land the feature, with fireworks illuminating the night sky. The reels have something of a basic look, with the symbols looking a little dated. However, the panda does illuminate the game. The soundtrack is an odd one, with a variety of tunes greeting the wins, none of them with a Far Eastern theme.
Asian Fortune? China Shores Slot Summary
This Konami designed slot certainly has some unique traits. The ‘Action Stacked Symbols’ system is a winner, giving the opportunity to land those big wins in the base game. The system can also ensure a great number of spins in the bonus round. On the downside, the sound and visuals don’t match up to some of their rivals – not fantastic, with so many Far Eastern themed slots around. Nevertheless, those big winning opportunities will appeal to many and this is certainly worth a spin.
