The Red Cat Monk is the highest paying symbol. The top payout is 10,000 times the line bet, which can be as much as $200,000 when you make the maximum $200 bet, a $2 coin with a bet level at 10, and have the maximum 30 matching symbols covering the entire board.
The Legend of Shangri-La uses a cluster pay system to determine a winner. This means that instead of needing symbols to line up on a payline, there must be at least nine matching symbols adjacent to each other going in any direction.
- Coins: To get started, set your bet by choosing a coin size and bet level. The minimum bet is $0.10, and the maximum bet is $200. The Legend of Shangri-La has two parts to each bet, the coin value which ranges from $0.01 – 2 and a bet level, or a number of coins you want to play with, between 1-10. Even though there are no paylines per se, each coin must be used 10 times, which is why the minimum bet is $0.10 even though you use a $0.01 coin and a Bet Level 1.
- Symbols: There are seven regular symbols on the reels. The top three paying ones are animal monks, a red cat, blue elephant, and a green monkey. Their respective top payouts are 10,000x, 5,000x, and 5,000x. These symbols can appear as double symbols, which is worth two symbols when it comes to creating a cluster. The four lower value symbols are a pink flower, green butterfly, purple dragonfly, and a koi fish. They each have a top payout of 2,000x.
- Wild: There is no traditional wild symbol in this game. But there is a mystery substitution symbol that will transform to the highest paying symbol adjacent to where it lands to create a win. This symbol can’t transform into a free spin symbol.
- Scatter: There is a large free spin symbol, and if you have between 3 – 6 of them on the reels, you will enter the free spin feature.

- Bonus Feature: During regular gameplay, if two matching clusters don’t create a win, a sticky respin will be triggered. The matching symbols will remain on the reels with the other symbols. The reels will continue respinning as long as new matching symbols land on the reels.
There is a free spin feature that is triggered when there are at least three full Free Spin symbols on the reels. If there are two full Free Spins and the third is only partially on the reels, it will trigger a nudge feature that can push the symbol on the reel and trigger the feature. The number of free spins is determined by how many Free Spin symbols are on the board.
- 3 symbols – 5 free spins
- 4 symbols – 6 free spins
- 5 symbols – 7 free spins
- 6 symbols – 8 free spins
During the free spins feature, the random substitution symbols will be added and removed to the reels. If, when the feature ends, you haven’t won at least 10x your line bet you will be awarded one extra spin.
Mobile and Gaming Experience
Netent adjusted the name of the game for mobile users to The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays Touch. The payouts and odds are identical to the game version. The only real differences are in the button layouts and how the game appears.
To change your bet, you will need to click on the Menu button and then click on the money icon. From there, you’ll be able to adjust the coin value and bet level sliders to find the total bet for you. From that same menu, you can slide over and set up the autoplay settings if you wish, and access the paytable.
This is a good change of pace from other slot games where a win or loss is determined by the time the second reel stops spinning. With the Nudge reels and sticky respins, Netent is letting punters know that sometimes close enough is good enough to win some money.
