The Ladies of the City
Whenever you’re ready to see out on your quest, you’ll need to know exactly what you’re looking for. Of course, a woman who is as pretty as a rose is a good guideline, and it’s these women that you’ll need to find on the five reel and three row display of this game. As far as the included symbols are concerned, you’ll find that there’s the regular offering of A, J, K, Q and 5. These are joined by two different icons of flowers, one red and the other pink. Then, the three highest paying standard symbols are three of the girls that you’ll need to rescue. All three are dressed in the most fitting of outfits, and their hair and make up is immaculate.
As well as all of this, High 5 Games have also included a total of 40 separate pay lines into the game as well. These can be customised to suit your own personal preferences, and this is done easily with the up and down arrows to the right hand side of the ‘Lines’ box. Further to this, you can also change the wager that you place per round, and this is able to be switched between $0.01 per line and $10 per line. So, if you have all 40 bet lines active and you increase your wager to its highest level, you’ll be placing a maximum overall bet of $400 per spin.
Assistance in Finding the Girls
It’s never too much trouble to ask for some help, and the developer has included a few special features in this game to make sure you’re able to carry out your mission successfully. The first of the game’s specialities is its freespins round, and this is triggered by the scatter icon. The scatter is represented by an image of Shanghai, and you’ll need to spin nine of these onto reels two, three and four in order to activate the freespins round. A total of eight freespins are provided to you, and the round utilises different reels.
There’s a wild symbol included alongside, and this is represented by the icon of many flowers. As a wild, this will substitute for all others on the reels, except for the previously mentioned scatter, and it will assist in forming wins. Should five of them appear on a winning pay line, you’ll receive a maximum pay out of 1,000 coins.
The developer has also added the ‘Super Stacks’ feature into this one. The reels contain stacks of mystery symbols, and these will transform into any of the noted symbols, with the only exception being the scatter.
Finally, there’s the addition of a ‘Multiplier’ feature. If any of the women or flower icons appear in all positions on three or more consecutive reels and in a winning combination, a multiplier of times two, times three or times five will be awarded to you.
Stealthily Does It
This game is a wonderfully crafted product, and it manages to tell a story through its graphics and animations. Of course, the special features make it all the more entertaining, and we certainly enjoy playing a few round of Shanghai Rose.
