Legend of the White Snake Lady is a great new video pokie game that for a theme has the same named Chinese legend. When it comes to game themes like this, you can find a lot of video pokie games online, from almost every software provider that tells a Chinese legend in one way or another.
What’s great about this theme is the fact that Chinese legends have a very interesting story, with all sorts of mythical creatures, so the designers have the liberty to let their imagination do their best. Since this is basically a fantasy theme it is no wonder why we can see some strange symbols on the reels like the Lady Snake herself, who is half woman half snake.
Along with the extraordinary symbols on the reels, the designers really went the distance to implement the very best visual effects on this game.
The serpent like reels are set in the base of a mountain on a bright summer night, adding mystic to the overall theme. As the reels spin players can enjoy some great animations on each of the symbols and even better ones when a win lands on the screen. As expected the background music has the recognizable eastern melody and flows perfectly with the game theme.
After the latest release from Yggdrasil Gaming, we didn’t expect to see a new video pokie game go online so fast. But sure enough Yggdrasil spared no time to offer their loyal players another video pokie game to enjoy.
It seems that the Ancient Chinese legends are becoming a source of ideas for Yggdrasils new pokie releases. Some time ago we had a chance to try out Monkey King, which follows a different Chinese legend, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see more pokies like this one from Yggdrasil in the future.
How to Play
Legend of the White Snake Lady is designed in a modern style, with 243 ways to win, forming over the 5 reels and 3 rows. The bet levels are standard to Yggdrasils 243 ways to win pokies, starting with $0.25 and ending with $125 per spin.
As always the bet level is adjusted by manipulating the coin size from $0.01 up to $5 and the Auto play button is there for indefinite auto spin sessions.
Finally we get to the special features of the game, which are one of Yggdrasils specialties when it comes to their video pokie games. Legend of the White Snake Lady has everything we wanted to see so far, great visual effects, corresponding background music and a modern 243 ways to win design. So the features should also be top notch as expected.
The first feature we notice is that wins on the reels are formed both ways, from left to right and right to left. So far so good, this means double chances of winning. The next feature is from the wild symbol. He only lands on the central reel and each time he does a free of charge re-spin is awarded, with the wild held in place.
Players have a chance to win up to 3 wilds on the central reel, in 3 consecutive wins and a chance for a big payout to land. So moving on to rest of the features! Well we can’t since that’s all there is.
What Yggdrasil installed in this game and for what they claim to be a feature is the fact that players get a 2,500 coins or 100x bet win, for every 5 of a kind win on the reels, regardless of the symbol. Not quite what we expected as a feature, but that’s what Yggdrasil decided to offer to players.
Like we said every 5 of a kind win awards players with 100 x total bet payout, except for the main symbol the White Snake Lady. If you get a 5 of a kind win with this symbol alone, without a wild in the combination, you will be awarded with 25,000 coins or a hefty 1,000 x total bet payout.
Legend of the White Snake Lady is probably the first disappointment for as us loyal Yggdrasil players, from ever since we can remember playing their games.
The symbols payout for 4 of a kind wins doesn’t go over 6 x bet, which is incredibly low and landing a 5 of a kind win seems almost impossible. We don’t know what the designers were thinking with this game, but we are sure it won’t be a favorite among Yggdrasil pokie fans.
