Wu Long seems to be a slot machine themed around the Chinese New Year’s celebration. Featuring women in beautiful traditional clothing, dragons, musical instruments, firecrackers and paper lanterns, it uses many of the things that are part of slot machines with a theme inspired by this country. The beautiful fireworks show visible in the background completes the picture. Playtech is the developer behind this slot machine.
You can expect the top prizes to be just as big as the wagers that you have to place in this 5 reel/25 lines game. You can win up to 0,000 by playing it, with the features including wilds that also work as scatters, free spins and multipliers.
Features of Wu Long
You don’t get much when it comes to features, the game relying on a scatter symbol and on free spins with multipliers. The scatter is also used as the wild.
Only one symbol has special powers in this game, the Dragon. This symbol is used as a scatter most of the time, so it pays you whenever three or more of them are on the reels, no matter in what position they land. They will pay you up to 50 times the bet when this happens. It’s also a wild though, so you can count on it to act as a substitute for other symbols and to make the game much more profitable in the long run. As a wild, there is no symbol in this game that it can’t replace in a combo.
Dragon’s Free Games
The free spins are interesting thanks to the multipliers it offers. You get 12 free spins whenever 3+ Dragons are scattered on the reels during the main game.
Having Dragons show up during these free spins will trigger one of these two possible events: Retriggering Free Spins or a Growing Multiplier.
You start off with a multiplier of 1x, but it goes up each time you have a round with 1 to 5 scattered Dragons present, and down by 1x each time you have a round without scatters. The maximum value of the multiplier is 6x. Having 2 to 5 scatters also increases the number of free spins, offering you between 2 and 12 extra rounds.
Betting options and jackpots
The two options that you are going to use to place a bet allow you to modify the number of active lines and the line bet. The first one can be used to bet on 1 to 25 lines. Each line requires its own coin, which the Line Bet allows you to modify. The values here are between .
The 2,500x top jackpot which is won in Wu Long will mean a maximum of 0,000 cash for you. The multipliers of the free spins can go up to 6x, so there is definitely potential for more.
Design and symbols
For a Chinese themed slot, there aren’t a lot of surprises in this game, but it manages to be appealing anyway. The symbols chosen for it are half playing cards, half images which are often selected to appear in sot machines with this kind of theme. There is nothing truly special about the design, but it’s a perfectly decent game to play on.
Symbols: Dragon (50x the bet, scatter/wild), Temple Entrance (2,500 coins), Chinese Girls (500 coins), Drum (300 coins), Metal Discs (300 coins), Paper Lantern (150 coins), Firecrackers (150 coins), Ace (100 coins), King (100 coins), Queen (75 coins) and Jack (75 coins).
It can be a very rewarding game when the free spins get involved, but I still feel like it doesn’t have enough features. The design is good enough, but the New Year’s celebrations theme is far from original.
This Wu Long slot is offered by all online casinos with Playtech software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
