Having lived the Year of the Rooster for over a month now, many iGaming studios have started to reveal their upcoming video slots. This includes bigger vendors like NextGen Gaming, as well as smaller ones such as Playson, Genesis Gaming and the fast-growing Endorphina. Let’s take a closer look at what each release has to offer.
Dancing Dragon Spring Festival Slot by Playson
Playson, which is better known for their hit game Bumper Crop, has recently announced their first Oriental slot Dancing Dragon Spring Festival. It comes with 30 pay-lines, 5 reels and a jackpot of 5,000x the total stake. The gameplay itself is very simple and has no bonuses at all. Instead, there are stacked symbols, which pay just over 160x the total bet, high-value Scatters and Wilds, which appear on reel 3 exclusively. All that happens at a fair RTP of 95.79%.
NextGen Gaming’s Shangri La Slot
NextGen Gaming, on the other hand, will soon come out with its subsequent premium title Shangri La. Based on the fictional place from the 1933 novel Lost Horizon, the storyline follows a girl who’s the keeper of the mythical Himalayan paradise city.
The game is played on 15 lines, 5 reels and with 11 basic symbols that pay up to 500 coins per line. One of the player advantages is the doubling Wild symbols, which appear on reels 2 – 4, and can also activate two more random features: Added Wilds and Wild Reels.
As if that wasn’t enough, Shangri La also has high-paying Scatters, which lead to 1 of 4 more bonuses. This includes a regular Free Games bonus as well as a Super Free Games feature, where the special Wild features are guaranteed to occur on every spin, plus Chest and Trail Bonuses, where players can collect up to 100x their total bet by picking the right chests and progressing on a special map.

Endpohina’s Chunjie Slot
Endorphina has gone for the Asian theme as well, with a new 38-line slot of theirs called Chunjie. Other than the unusual number of win-lines, the game also features Wilds that pay up to 888 coins and can magnify wins by 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 18x or a whopping 88x. Scatters are in the mix too and can trigger wins of up to 7,144 coins. Better yet, they are also the source of free spins, which players can choose at their will depending on the risk level.
