    The Legend of Shangri-La Cluster Pays

    You can play The Legend of Shangri-La Cluster Pays from just 10p per spin.

    Betting in this game uses the Cluster Pays mechanic.

    Cluster Pays

    If a symbol is horizontally or vertically adjacent to the same symbol, it is part of a Cluster.

    Nine or more of the same symbols appearing in a Cluster will award a win.

    Simultaneous wins achieved across several Clusters will be added together to award a total win.

    Clusters of the same symbol that are not directly next to each are evaluated separately.


    Stacked Symbols

    The Guru symbols and Free Spins symbols may land at any point in the game and will appear as stacked symbols.

    The Guru symbol covers one position during Sticky Re-spins and when influenced by Substitution symbols.

    Stacked symbols may be fully displayed depending on the reel.

    If a Substitution symbol lands on a stacked Guru symbol and transforms, the exposed part of the Guru symbol will transform into a single version.

    Substitution Symbols

    A Substitution symbol transforms into a symbol that is directly next to it, in order to create the best value win.

    The Substitution symbol will not transform if no winning combination can be created.

    These symbols cannot replace Free Spin symbols on the reels.

    Substitution symbols will transform into the symbol that is worth the most if they are the only symbol left on the reel.


    Main Game Features

    There are four features that can be only triggered during the base game.

    Only one feature can be activated per spin.

    1. Random Substitutions
    2. Sticky Re-spins
    3. Nudge Reel
    4. Free Spins 

    Random Substitutions Feature

    Landing two Clusters of the same symbols will trigger the Random Substitutions feature, adding at least one Substitution symbol adjacent to the existing Clusters, which can be anywhere except on reels one and six.

    More Substitution symbols are added randomly until a win is achieved.

    It is not possible to trigger the Random Substitutions feature if there are three Free Spins symbols fully or partially on the reels, or if the Nudge Reel can be activated.

    Wins achieved during this feature are evaluated at the end of the spin.

    Sticky Re-spins Feature

    Two or more non-winning Clusters of the same symbol will activate the Sticky Re-spins feature unless there is a win or any of the other features are activated.

    The lowest paying symbol is chosen if there are two which both meet the condition.

    Each initial Cluster must contain between five and eight symbols.

    The triggering symbol is referred to as the 'Feature symbol' and is the only symbol that can win during the Sticky Re-spins feature.

    The Feature symbol sticks to the reels while all other symbols spin again. 

    Re-spins continue as long as new Feature symbols land.

    The final Cluster win is awarded according to the Paytable.

    The same bet level and coin value as the triggering spin are used during Sticky Re-spins.

    Nudge Reel

    If two Free Spins symbols land inside the reels and another Free Spins symbol lands to the right of the reels, then the third symbol can be nudged onto the reels to activate the Free Spins Bonus.

    If the nudging can increase, decrease, or create a winning Cluster, the Nudge Reel will not be triggered.

    If several symbols can be nudged, the one that is on the very left-hand side is selected.

    Free Spins Bonus

    Landing three or more Free Spins symbols during the main game, either fully or partially, will activate the Free Spins Bonus.

    The number of free spins awarded is dependent on the amount of triggering symbols.

    • Three Free Spins symbols - five free spins
    • Four Free Spins symbols - six free spins
    • Five Free Spins symbols - seven free spins
    • Six Free Spins symbols - eight free spins

    During free spins, between two and six random Substitution symbols are added and removed on each spin.

    The first two Substitution symbols are randomly placed on the reels, and subsequent Substitution symbols are placed adjacent to Clusters formed by the initial two symbols.

    If Substitution symbols create a winning Cluster, they will transform into the selected symbol and any potential wins are added to the total Free Spins win amount.

    Symbols that were originally Substitution symbols change back into the original symbol.

    Before the next spin, between one and four random Substitution symbols are taken off the reels.

    Extra Spin

    If the total number of free spins is worth less than 10x your wager, then an additional spin may be awarded.

    No Substitution symbols are removed from the reels during the extra spin.

    It is not possible to receive an additional extra spin in one bonus.


    Return to Player

    Return To Player (RTP): 96.59%.

    The expected return is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.

    For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average, pay out £96.59 of wins.
