In the online slot industry, we see games made based on all different types of themes. In Legend of the White Snake Lady, an online slot produced by Yggdrasil, we see a common Chinese folktale as the basis of the theme of the game. The story itself is certainly weird and involves a guy falling in love with a woman who is really an immortal snake and how her snake friend saves her lover in some kind of epic fight to the death (that doesn't actually go to the death) with someone who tries to interfere. While the story itself is hard to follow, the game has beautiful graphics and solid features that make it a lot of fun to play.

Layout of the Game

The layout of this slot is fairly standard. It uses five reels and three rows, and it has the all-ways format. Typically this would mean there are 243 ways to win, which there are still, but wins go both left-to-right and right-to-left, so you have even more chances to hit winning combinations. In short, this game has an exceptionally high hit-rate and a low volatility.

Betting in this game is based on wagering 25 coins. You can use coins that range from $0.01 to $5.00 apiece, so your actual bet sizes per spin go from $0.25 to $125. This covers penny players, high rollers and everyone in between.

Volatility Issues

This title is put together in a way that leads to somewhat atypical gameplay. You'll hit small and medium wins somewhat often because of the 243 ways format, especially with the fact that you can win in both directions. However, five of a kind of any of the seven paying symbols pays a pretty significant amount. This causes the game to have a medium overall volatility, which is interesting given the layout of the slot as a whole. This is something to keep in mind when choosing to play this game because you might want to start off with lower stakes than you normally do until you get a feel for how the swings work.

Wild Symbol Re-spin Feature

In this game, you'll see wild symbols on the middle reel only. Along these lines, they do not have their own payouts. However, they will substitute for other symbols, and they do have a special feature associated with them. This feature works by locking any wilds you get in place and giving you a free re-spin. You can get multiple wilds on the middle reel, and each time you pick up another one, you get the same kind of feature. You can have up to three wilds on the middle reel in this way.

Jackpot Payouts

The top jackpot in this game is 25,000x, and you can earn this by getting five of the White Snake Lady herself without any wilds. If you pick up five with a wild, then the prize is dropped down to 2,500x. At first, that seems like a bit of a drag. However, when you consider the fact that 2,500x is higher than the top jackpot in most slots running today, then you see that the 25,000x super jackpot is more of a special edition than a part of the normal pay table.

Regular Pay Table

Aside from the wilds and White Snake Lady, there are six symbols paired up together to create three tiers. The red man and green snake person make up the top tier. The blue monk and purple man make up the second tier. Finally, the man holding the glowing orb and the purple b ridge symbol make up the bottom tier. It's important to know which tier is which in this game because the pay table is really atypical.

Five of a kind of any of these six symbols, no matter the tier and no matter if a wild is used to help you make the winning combination, pays out 2,500x. From there, the top tier symbols pay 150x for four and 75x for three. On the middle tier, four of a kind earns 100x and three gets you 50x. Finally, four of the bottom tier gives a 75x payout, and three of the bottom tier gives you a 25x win.

Our Thoughts

The graphics and pay table of this game really stand out as being different from the pack, and Yggdrasil has done a great job with that. With that being said, some players will find the change of pace a bit different because there's a decent hit-rate in this game with a very top-heavy pay table. Overall, it's a pretty cool way of handling things and it's a bit different than what most players will have ever seen before, but it's also something that takes some getting used to.
