Kailash Mystery is an online slots game from Booongo Games, a relatively small player in the industry, but creating a few waves with online gamers the world over. This latest release was hotly anticipated, and as you’re going to find out, doesn’t disappoint.
Truly a masterpiece in every sense
This game will blow your mind, it is truly and utterly stunning visually, and the choice of theme fits perfectly with the ethos of the slot, which we suspect comes from the guys that put this together themselves.
Presented over a five reel setup with a modest 16 fixed paylines, this slot based on the Kailash mountain pushes just about every boundary within the industry right now. Don’t let that small number of paylines bother you, because the features that surround them will not only entertain but pay well too.
The Kailash Mountain is a place of religious significance across four different religions, seen as a place where the ‘Gods of Bliss’ ruled. This spiritual significance comes through with the design, the reels are set against a stunning mountain terrace, surrounded by wild shrubs, bookended by waterfalls and punctuated by small fluffy clouds to signify the altitude.
A taste of the East
The design of the reels themselves draw upon Asian cultural cues, situated in the centre of the mountain, the scene is like nothing we have seen in an online slot recently, if ever. The reels are set up slightly differently from the usual 5-reelers, with two symbols vertically, four symbols vertically, six symbols vertically, four symbols vertically, and then two symbols vertically once more to signify the shape of the mountain, clever eh?
Symbols-wise you’ll find Asian styled text, feathers, rose petals, gold coins, lanterns and dragons. It’s worth pointing out at this point just how mysterious and magical this slot actually appears, it really is quite amazing; a fine job from Booongo.
The rattling of the cash
Spin these reels and you get aurally transported to the scene, delicate wind chimes play their tune as the reels turn, reminding you of the ensuing wins. And believe us, those wins will come, as in Kailash Mystery you can win if you land three in a row from either direction. This improves the game twofold, both with the level of action and excitement, as well as in the versatility of ways you can actually translate this fun to cash.
Chasing the Dragon
The symbol to keep your eyes peeled for is the dragon, this is the wild and substitutes all other symbols to form wins. Also, keep in mind that because this slot pays out both ways, its party trick, our dragon friend can be quite to sidekick, pushing your wins sky high.
The wonders of the wild don’t stop there either, it also expand on reels 3 and 4 whilst the free spins round runs, potentially giving you eight free spins should you get three or more scatter symbols at random across the reels.
Kailah Mystery is sensational. It’s intriguing, it’s atmospheric, it has some killer features and ways to win. That reel setup is quirky and exciting, the soundtrack is absolutely spot-on and the way the mystery of the Kailash mountain is captured is a real credit to this small yet very promising game developer.
We started playing this in the office about three weeks ago, and it has been on one screen or another ever since, and as you might imagine we review hundreds of these slots. We are really excited to see what else comes out of Booongo in the near future, but for now we’re just happy to play this magnificent and near flawless slot game. Well done to all involved. Blown. Away.
