China Shores is a laid back 5 reel and 30 payline online slot from Konami, who are better known for filling land based casinos with quality slots but have now ventured into online casino gaming, and what a great job of it they’re doing. The superbly designed China Shores is a great example of what they can produce and mixes in tranquil Chinese style symbols with heaps of ways to win, and it’s a highly enjoyable slot to spin.
At present Konami slots are not available for US players to enjoy however if you’re looking for a great Chinese themed 5 reel slot and are based in the US then very similar in style to China Shores slots is the fantastic Rival Gaming slot of Panda Party. Panda Party slots is part of the Rival iSlots selection and is packed to the rafters with great features that includes a cool bonus round and a ton of freespins, and it’s available for US players to enjoy in the best Rival online casinos right now.
The symbols on the 5 reels of China Shores slots are all unique and look so good against the Chinese style backdrop. You’ll see an urn, Chinese lantern, the ying yang sign, a gold tortoise and a panda, and it’s the panda that plays the part of the China Shores wild symbol. The panda can appear on reels 2 through to 5 and will replace other China Shores symbols to create the winning paylines, and as much as that’s a symbol you want to see plenty of, it’s the ying yang symbol that you’ll want to see more of.
The ying yang plays the China Shores scatter role and when you see 5 of these across the reels you’ll get a staggering x100 multiplier of your spinning bet, however just 3 or more will activate the brilliant China Shores freespins bonus round. You’ll be provided with 8 free China Shores spins but there is a big difference to this great freespins round as you can use the Balance of Fortune feature which allows you to exchange the freebies for a cash prize at anytime you wish, which is something that we’ve not seen on the reels before and it’s something that offers a tough, but nice decision to have to make. China Shores also serves up the Konami Action Stacked symbols which can add more wilds to the reels, and is yet again, another great feature.
While Konami have focused on video games and land based slots for years it’s great to see a company with such experience venturing into online slots and China Shores is a great addition to their blooming portfolio. Simple, with a brilliant design and great graphics, China Shores is a fantastic Chinese themed slot, and we hope for more of the same from the great Konami.
