Legend of the White Snake Lady Review
The Legend of the White Snake Lady is a new slot machine based on a famous Chinese legend. The slot itself was brought to life by one of the most popular game developing brands Yggdrasil Gaming. Prepare to take part in one of the oldest and craziest love stories the world has ever known…
The theme of the slot might seem a bit generic and ordinary but the design work alone kills any sort of dullness or generic feel. One of the most exciting things the slot has to offers is the potentially rewarding gameplay as you have 243 ways to win and your wild icons could become sticky, leaving you with more rewards!
The story behind the slot has a lot of different variations but the most basic version tells the tale of Xu Xian – a man who falls in love with a beautiful young lady, Bai Suzhen. According to the legend the lovely young lady turns out to be a mystical white snake spirit that gained immortal powers eighteen years ago by swallowing immortality pills. An interesting plot twist is that Xu Xian is actually the one who gave the White Snake Lady her powers as he was the one who originally got the pills from one of the Eight Immortals, Lu Dongbin.
The story itself is very weird and often confusing as the lovely couple struggle to fight against the evil trying to separate them. As soon as the two get together Fahai, a terrapin turtle who transformed into a Buddhist Monk tries to split them up. Fahai gets beaten by Xiaoqing, a green snake in human form, who happens to be friends with the White Snake Lady. Fahai then hides in a crab tummy and the two lovebirds Xu Xian and Bai Suzhen give birth to a baby as they enter a blissful happy ending… Quite confusing but still intriguing.
The game is playable on all devices from your Computer desktop straight through to your tablet or smartphone device. You can win up to 1000x your bet if you manage to get 5 white snake ladies at the same time.
Look & Feel
Yggdrasil has this amazing ability to take even the simplest theme or genre and create something spectacular around it. The design quality and graphics are excellent and suit the game perfectly. The variety of colours and captivating cartoon illustrations along with the beautifully designed characters of the tale captures the attention. The game symbols include a number of characters from the story, a pagoda and a bridge. The wild symbol of this slot is a beautiful gold amulet and it appears only on reel three.
The slot contains beautiful colours, designs and animations and as usual Yggdrasil launched another creation with perfect graphics.
Sound & Score
The sound of the slot is very dramatic and well suited to the slot – it gives the whole Mulan on a mission feeling to the slot but personally we think it might be a little too demanding. The soundtrack is well-fitted and great for the first 5 minutes but then you kind of want to opt for the no sound option.
Bonus features and Gameplay
Sticky Re-spin Wilds:
The wild symbol of this slot is a gold amulet and it only shows on reel 3. If it lands on your third reel you’ll score a free re-spin during which your chances of bigger and better wins improve with the wild still stuck on the reel.
Win All Ways:
Unfortunately this slot has only one bonus feature but the 243 ways to win make up for it. With this slot you get wins from both left to right and right to left.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! You should try out this slot simply because of the interesting Legend of the White Snake Lady. Despite the interesting tale it follows, Yggdrasil has managed to create yet another fun, gorgeously designed and highly rewarding slot. The slot might not seem as fun when you find out there are very little bonus features but you’ll soon realise that the slot in itself is rewarding enough. Definitely give this slot a chance and experience something a little different that the generic Chinese video slots.
