Shanghai 008  is a simple Spadegaming free Chinese themed pokies game, it was first released for online casino players on 31st October 2017, it has a RTP of 97.01%, a 5 x 3 reel format, 25 ways to win and a medium variance level.


The game’s theme is that of detectives, albeit Chinese version. Here, you will be spinning symbols related to a lot of money and lavish lifestyle.

The high-value symbols are:

  • Lady in red
  • Lady in silver
  • Classic car
  • Cash pile

The wild in the game is the detective, and the scatter symbol is the double golden guns. There are also four low-value symbols in the game.


Here are the prizes for the four high-value symbols.

Number of Appearance in a Pay Line  SYMBOL
Lady in Red Lady in Silver Classic Car Cash Pile
5 500 500 250 250
4 100 100 75 75
3 25 25 20 20

All these prizes do not change regardless of your bet size. These values are multipliers that applied to your bet per line.

In the game, the minimum wager is 0.50, and the maximum is 500 coins. To determine your bet per line, simply divide your bet by 25 lines. Since the minimum bet is 0.50, the slot is basically charging twice the base currency unit as the value of each coin.

The prizes for the low-value symbols are:

Number of Appearance in a Pay Line  SYMBOL
5 125 100
4 50 25
3 10 5

To win, you must land at least three same symbols on adjacent reels, beginning on the first reel. They must land on specific spots according to the pay line structure or design, which you can view from the game menu.

If the triple symbol combo is in the middle, you will not get any prize. Since all the pay lines are fixed, there is no need to worry about missing a wager on a line.

What this means is that for every spin, you have a bet on all lines. Any winning combo that drops on them guarantees you a prize. The slot would only pay the highest possible win on a line, in case two combos landed on one pay line. You will not be paid both.


Here are the features of the online slot:

  • Wild – it substitutes for all symbols except the scatter to form a winning combo; it also pays out coin prizes if you land them on a pay line.

The wild prizes are:

  • 5x – 20,000
  • 4x – 500
  • 3x – 50
  • Scatter – this symbol only appears on reels 2 to 4, and pays double your total bet if you landed three on those three adjacent reels.

If you wagered 500 coins and landed three scatters, your prize is going to be 500 x 2 = 1,000 coins.

  • Free Spins – three scatter symbols in the middle reels will trigger 10 free spins. During the free rounds, you will also receive multipliers that will be used on the winning combo.

This multiplier will consistently increase per consecutive spins, and you can hit up to 32x multiplier value. You can re-trigger free spins if you land three more scatters, but the maximum is 40 free spins.
