Golden Shanghai allows players to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of a Chinese metropolis. The game’s five reels with 20 fixed paylines are set against the backdrop of a brightly lit night city. The video slot is popular among users because of its free spins bonus feature with an additional win multiplier and the wild symbol that doubles all payouts for the combinations it helps make.
Before setting the reels in motion, the player can adjust a single variable parameter – the total bet size. Here is how to do it:
To bet the maximum amount in just one click, players need to use the Max Bet button. All the most relevant information about the game is contained in the paytable, which opens with the “i” key. The round button in the center of the control panel starts spins. Combinations of 2 to 5 identical symbols per line guarantee payouts.
The picture of a neon sign that says Wild substitutes for most other symbols and forms combinations with the highest payout multipliers: 25, 100, 300, and 500. Winning combinations of pictures that include the wild symbol pay double. The female and male portraits multiply the linear bet by 5, 50, 100, and 200 times. All the above symbols form paid combinations when there are 2, 3, 4, or 5 of them on the line. The rest of the pictures (except the “10” symbol) guarantee payouts when they land in groups of 3, 4, or 5 per line.
The old car has multipliers of 15, 50, and 80, and the gramophone increases the bet by 15, 40, and 80 times. The multipliers for the microphone are 10, 30, and 60, and the rickshaw symbol boosts payouts by 10, 25, and 50 times. The playing card symbols increase the linear bet as follows:
The video slot has a highly profitable bonus option – free spins. This feature is activated once 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols land on the reels. Scatters guarantee payouts that equal the size of the total bet multiplied by 1, 3, 5, or 50. After three or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, the user is awarded 15 free spins, during which all payouts are tripled. Moreover, payouts for combinations featuring the wild symbol are multiplied by six times.
The slot’s Return to Player (RTP) rate is around 96%. The most impressive payouts can come during free spins. At the maximum bet, the amounts payable to the player can reach 120,000 credits. For this reason, players are recommended to gradually increase their bet by equal amounts until landing three scatters and then return the bet amount to its initial value.
