Chinese folklore stories are always a hugely popular slot game theme and Swedish developers Yggdrasil have certainly looked to exploit their popularity with their ‘Legend of the White Snake Lady’ slot game.
The tale has many different adaptations that have been passed throughout history, however the main story is about Xu Xian and how he falls in love with Bai Suzhen. Bai, though, is the White Snake Lady as she was given immortality pills from Xu unknowingly 18 years prior. There is plenty more to the tale, including that they had a family, but the slot game certainly tells the version rather well.
Our Legend of the White Snake Lady slot review found that this slot game is played on a 5-reel grid and has 243 different win methods attached to it. Although there are no paylines within the game, winners will be rewarded with prizes when they match three or more icons that are adjacent to each other on the reels, working in either direction.
Players can spin from as little as 0.01 coins, although this is adjustable to a maximum of 5 credits. In money terms, that is as little as 0.25¢ per spin to a rather large $125 per spin, therefore providing players with all betting requirements the opportunity to place a wager.
To make the game easier to play, the game also has a ‘Max Bet’ button and a ‘Auto Play’ button, whilst the ‘Spin’ button is located centrally at the bottom of the screen.
There are a number of symbols available for players to try and form winning combinations with, with the Palace by night, the Palace by day, Baby Xu Xian, Lu Dongbin, Green Snake Lady, Buddhist Monk and the White Snake Lady all involved – as these are all known to be in the old Chinese tale.
Interestingly, though, regardless of which symbols are matched up, they will all produce the same winning combination when five of a kind are landed on. This value equates to 2,500x the original stake. Indeed, three or four of the same symbols can produce different amounts, varying from 25x to 100x and 75x to 250x the stake.
The White Snake Lady offers a 2,500x stake reward if landed on with the use of a wild (which is the same symbol), although if players are able to land it without the need for the wild, they can earn a cool 25,000x the original bet.
Our Legend of the White Snake Lady bonus features hunt managed to uncover just one bonus feature within the Yggdrasil title.
The White Snake Lady acts as the game’s wild symbol as well, and will work like other wilds in other slot games. It will replace other symbols in the game to try and help form winning sequences, although it does also have a handy feature that accompanies it.
Despite only appearing on the third reel of the game, if it does make an appearance players will be awarded with a free spin of the reels with the wild staying in place, therefore providing bettors with an opportunity to win big.
RTP (return to player)
Yggdrasil’s slot games tend to have a return to player rate (RTP) of around 96.1% and our Legend of the White Snake Lady slot review found that this was also the case for this particular title. Nonetheless, it is still attractive and one in which players can certainly make the most of in this strange but interesting old Chinese story.
