ERLANG SHEN


ERLANG SHEN QUICK START GUIDE

A 5-reel slot, Erlang Shen released on 23rd November 2019 by KA Gaming. It is a 30-payline slot with an unknown RTP and variance. With 30 bet ways, the game also offers wilds, scatters, and bonus rounds.

Erlang Shen is a mythical god in Chinese culture. Some say that he was a real person who goes way back—even before the Qin dynasty. He is known as a person who helped control floods at that time. As a god, Chinese people claim that he has a third eye—also called the truth-seeing eye.

REEL SYMBOLS

It is this storyline—as a god—where the slot is based, so you will be spinning symbols of the following:

  • Erlang Shen
  • Castle
  • Gold and Blue Dragons
  • Sword
  • Amulet

The game offers a total of four high-value symbols. It also has six low-value symbols that pay between $25 and $400 on the highest bet.

BASE GAME SYMBOLS & PAYS

Here is the paytable of the slot machine. All pays are in currency values, and they change if you decrease or increase your bet. The one shown below is for the highest bet of $150 per round.

PAYTABLE
Number of Appearance in a Pay Line SYMBOLS
Gold Dragon Blue Dragon Sword Amulet
5 1,250 600 600 400
3 150 75 75 50
2 10

Curiously enough, the slot does not have a payout for four symbols. It pays for a combo of five symbols and three symbols, but not four.

The missing four-reel combo may be because of the wild, which we will discuss in the next section.

To win, you have to land at least three same symbols on any of the 30 lines, except the golden dragon which requires only two. The symbol line-up must be on adjacent reels, and the combo must start from the leftmost reel.

BONUS GAMES & FEATURES

Here are the slot machine’s features:

  • Wild – the wild is Erlang Shen, and it acts as a substitute for all symbols to make a winning combo in case you are missing one. It cannot substitute for the scatter. The wild is an expanded wild all the time. In the game, the fifth reel is always an expanded wild.

During the spins, you may have a chance to trigger what is called the Duplicate Wild. One or more reels may randomly be filled with expanded wilds in addition to the fifth reel.

This is why there is no four-symbol combo. If you ever get four symbols from the first to the fourth reel, then that is automatically a 5-symbol combo because the fifth reel is already a wild.

The wild has a payout as shown below (for max bet of $150):

  • 5x – $2,500
  • 3x – $200
  • 2x – $25
  • Scatter – the scatter symbol is the castle. You need to land at least three of it anywhere on the grid to win free spins. Whether you landed three, four, or five scatters, you will win 15 free games. During this round, you can re-trigger up to 300 total free spins.

The scatter does not have a payout and it only appears in reels 2, 3, and 4.

SUMMARY

We will rate this free KA Gaming slot with 7.2 out of 10 points. It is rare to see a slot machine that offers a permanent stacked wild. Even if the stacked wild is at the last reel, it can still do wonders for you, especially so that the stacked wild can be duplicated.

The number of free spins you can win is also generous. 15 free games can do a lot, plus you can trigger up to 300 total bonus spins if you get lucky.
