Those creative geniuses at Danish software house Yggdrasil have done it once more, with their Chinese themed offering, Legend of the White Snake Lady. This high-variance slot transports you to the Far East, immersing you into the legend of Madame White Snake.
Presented over a seemingly standard 5x3 setup with a huge 243 ways to win, this slot takes that super high variance and slaps you with potential wins of 1000x your stake and makes this available at even the lowest level of bets.
A wild story for ancient times
Based on the Legend of the White Snake, it depicts the story of a woman who becomes immortal as the white snake takes on human form, though left lacking and longing for love.
The wild in the game replaces all other symbols to form wins, apart from the white snake scatter, which will bring with it the highest and most rewarding payouts throughout the game. You can play this game across your devices.
One for the high rollers
This game has a high percentage of return, set at 96.10% which gives a house edge of 3.90%. As a result of this it is positioned perfectly for those placing high-value bets. You’ll find that the game pays out on average every 6 to 8 spins, but when it does pay you usually get a larger win.
The jackpot isn’t progressive in this game, but it’s still sizeable at 25,000 coins when set to the highest betting level. This can be achieved through landing the white snake lady symbol, the most lucrative in the game. The mechanics and gameplay point to a bias towards high stakes players, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Some bonuses for your efforts
Although you won’t find any free spins in this game, you will see there’s a golden snake symbol that will trigger a respin, so having that appear in succession can emulate a free spins feature within reason. Get more wilds across the centre reel for more respins. Up to three may appear on the centre reel, they will then remain locked whilst the reels respin.
The win all ways feature that the developer has integrated into this slot brings with it huge winning potential, and this helps to balance things out a little when you take those stacked wilds into consideration. You can really add those winning combinations up. Get five-of-a-kind of any symbol across the reels for wins of between 100x and 1000x your stake on every spin.
If it’s a game full of sexy bonuses you're after, then forget it. Legend Of The White Snake Lady is almost classic in its approach to how a slot should be designed. Unfortunately, and unlike other games from Yggdrasil, it feels a bit rushed. Like those missing features might have been in the initial blueprint, but time constraints saw them axed. This is a game for high rollers who can sit and feed serious amounts of cash in until it blows up and pays then out a fortune, sadly that doesn’t include most of us.
