Land some cluster wins in The Legend of Shangri-La Cluster Pays, with free spins and sticky re-spins among the bonus feeatures on offer.
Paylines do not feature in this game, as it uses a Cluster Pays mechanic instead.
If a symbol is horizontally or vertically adjacent to the same symbol, it is classed as a cluster.
Landing at least types of the same symbol in a cluster triggers a win.
Simultaneous wins from numerous clusters are added together.
Multiple clusters of the same symbol that are not adjacent to each other pay as different clusters.
The Guru and Free Spins symbols can land in any position on the reels as stacked symbols.
While you are playing the Sticky Re-Spins feature and when affected by Substitution symbols, the Guru symbols cover one position.
If a Substitution symbol lands on a stacked Guru Symbol and transforms, the part of the Guru that is exposed turns into a single version.
The Substitution symbol is not linked to the symbol it covers in any way.
Depending on how the reel lands, stacked symbols will be displayed either fully or partially.
To form the highest possible win, the Substitution symbol transforms into an adjacent symbol.
If it is not possible to create a winning combination by a Substitution symbol then they won't transform.
If only Substitution symbols are shown on the reels, they will turn into the symbol with the highest value.
Substitution symbols are not able to be used as substitutes for Free Spin symbols.
Main Game Features
While playing the main game, they are four features that can only be triggered in this section:
- Random Substitutions
- Sticky Re-Spins
- Nudge Reel
- Free Spins
When two or more clusters of the same symbol are displayed in the main game, you can trigger Random Substitutions.
When triggered, at least one Substitution symbol is added to the reels at positions adjacent to the existing clusters.
Until you complete a win, more Substitution symbols will be added to the reels.
It's not possible to trigger the Random Substitutions feature if three Free Spins symbols are fully or partially in view on the reels, or if Nudge Reel can be activated.
The Substitution symbols are added to positions adjacent to the existing clusters or other Substitution symbols, with the exception of reels 1 and 6.
This feature is activated when two or more non-winning clusters of the same symbol are shown in any position on the reels.
If there are two symbols present, and they both meet this requirement, then it will automatically select the lowest-paying symbol.
There must be at least five symbols in each initial cluster, although there cannot be more than eight.
You cannot win on any other symbol than the symbol that triggered the feature - this is known as the feature symbol.
If two Free Spin symbols land on the reels, alongside another Free Spin symbol to the right of them, then that third symbol can be nudged back onto the reels in order to activate the Free Spins Bonus.
You will not trigger Nudge Reel if the nudging is able to increase, decrease or create a winning cluster.
If there are several symbols that fulfil the criteria then the selected symbol will be the one furthest to the left.
Free Spins Bonus
You can trigger the Free Spins Bonus by landing a minimum of three Free Spin Scatter symbols across the reels.
The number of free spins you receive is based on the number of Free Spin symbols that appear, as explained below:

Following every spin, Substitution symbols can be added to and removed from the reels randomly.
The initial two Substitution symbols are randomly placed on the reels, while the rest are added to positions adjacent to clusters formed by the first two Substitution symbols.
The reels will have between two and six Substitution symbols added to them.
If a Substitution symbol is able to form a winning cluster, then it will transform into the chosen symbol.
The symbols that were Substitution symbols originally will revert to their original form.
Before the next spin takes place, the reels will be removed of between one and four Substitution symbols from random positions.
Two or more Substitution symbols will always be kept on the reels between spins.
The first two Substitution symbols are placed onto the reels randomly.
Following each spin, and as soon as the reels have stopped spinning, between two and six Substitution symbols are added to the reels.
Prior to the next spin, between one and four Substitution symbols are removed from the reels from random positions.
If the total win you achieved while playing the Free Spins Bonus is less than 10x your bet, you may receive an extra spin.
On this spin, no Substitution symbols are removed from the reels.
It is not possible to re-trigger this extra spin in the same Free Spins Bonus.
