Based on the Chinese folk tale of the Legend of the White Snake, Bai She Zhuan sees us as active players in the battle between Bai Suzhen and Fai Hai. They’re both trapped in concrete, trying their hardest to get out so they can face off properly, but will they manage to do so? Release one of them to activate a special feature, in this enthralling Pariplay slot that’s full of realistic graphics, the moon glowing above the sea and Chinese folklore heavily represented here too. The Chinese folk music adds another level of intrigue and mystique, but will you manage to free either of our main characters?
How to play
Bai She Zhuan has 25 paylines and 5 reels, and to win you just need to go from left to right across the play board. There are a number of Chinese-themed symbols on show, and the symbols are split into 2 groups. There are Bai Suzhen’s blue symbols and then Fai Hai’s red symbols - each symbol has a ‘twin’ of the equivalent value in the other colour. The 2 most valuable regular symbols are the main male characters in the legend, so Fai Hai is the most valuable red symbol, while Xu Xian is the most valuable blue symbol. From a £1.25 spin you can win up to £80 by matching them, but if you get 5 Wilds you’ll get a huge £250! Both Wild symbols substitute for all other symbols apart from the Bonus and Scatter symbols, but they have slightly different functions. The red Wild symbol expands up to one other Wild around it and then both become Sticky Wilds for an extra spin, while the blue Wild symbol expands up to 3 Wilds around it.
Let the battle commence! Consecutive blue or red wins will fill the meter of the respective character, and you could release one of them as a result. When this happens, you’ll trigger either Free Spins (Bai Suzhen) or the Bonus Game (Fai Hai). Freeing Bai Hai gets you 5 Free Spins, while if in the same round the spins were triggered by Scatter symbols, you’ll have an extra 5 Free Spins added. If you trigger Fai Hai’s Bonus Game by getting Bonus symbols but you free him too, you’ll not only get the Bonus Game but a retrigger too. You can also trigger Free Spins by getting 3 or more Scatter symbols, for 5, 10 or 15 Free Spins, and you can win additional spins by getting additional Scatter symbols or the Bai Suzhen Snake Wild symbol appearing on reel 5. Likewise, the Bonus Game is triggered by getting 3 or more Bonus symbols. 3 will simply trigger the game, while 4 get a Bonus Retrigger and 5 get 2 Bonus Retriggers. If you manage to complete the Bonus Game without opening an empty chest, you’ll get a Retrigger then too...
