Wu Long Online Slot Basics
Wu Long is a Chinese festival-themed online slot game developed by Playtech. The game includes 5 reels and 25 paylines in a festive temple setting complete with fireworks, traditional musical instruments and Chinese dragons.
The game offers a wild symbol that also acts as the scatter symbol to trigger the main feature. The main bonus feature offered by Wu Long is the Dragon’s Free Games feature, which awards players an initial 12 free spins and the chance to win up to 12 more, as well as a win multiplier during the feature of up to 6x the total wins.
Graphics and Game Play
Wu Long is set against the silhouette of a towering Chinese temple decorated with a slate roof and dragon statues at each corner. Surrounding this temple are the bright sparks of celebratory fireworks, which rain down above the reels. The reels themselves are solid purple and look as though they are a part of the silhouetted temple, and the pay table and paylines have been designed in an elegant gold style, with even the pay table buttons designed in an Oriental-like font in keeping with the theme.
On the reels themselves are all the symbols that one might associate with a traditional festival, including a number of instruments, fireworks, dragons and even a couple of women in traditional dress who are wielding hand-held fans, all perpetuating the game’s Oriental thme.
The reel symbols of Wu Long are all theme-related, and include glowing red lanterns, colourful firecrackers, Chinese temples, a pair of women with their fans, golden cymbals and drums, as well as playing card symbols J, Q, K and A styled in a sloping gold script.
Wild and Scatter Symbol
The dragon symbol serves as the Wu Long online slot wild symbol, and substitutes all other game symbols to create winning combinations on the reels, as well as paying out the game’s jackpot when 5 appear on any active payline. Additionally, the dragon symbol also acts as the game’s scatter symbol, triggering the Dragon’s Free Games feature when 3 or more symbols land anywhere on the reels.
Dragon’s Free Games Feature
Once the Dragon’s Free Games feature has been activated, players will automatically be awarded an initial 12 free spins with which to play. It is possible for players to win more free spins and extra win multipliers by landing more dragon symbols during the free spins. Landing 1 dragon symbol will increase the multiplier incrementally from 2x to 4x to 6x, and landing 2 dragon symbols will award a multiplier of between 1x and 6x plus 2 additional free spins.
Landing 3 dragon symbols on the reels will award a 6x multiplier and 4 free spins, 4 dragons will award a 6x multiplier and 8 free spins and 5 dragons will award players a win multiplier of 6x the wins and an additional 12 free spins. If players do not land a dragon symbol on the reels after a spin, the multiplier will be decreased by 1x.
