This new Zhanshi slot was released by RealTime Gaming in March 2016, and is based on Ancient Chinese culture. The slot features moderately good graphics, as well as an interesting theme. There are a number of similarly styled video slots on the net, but RTG seem to have gone above and beyond the call of duty with this slot.
Zhanshi is not without its drawbacks (it is rather difficult to find at most casinos at this moment, though that could change in the future), however, it does offer big progressive jackpots and being an RTG game, USA casino players are able to get their hands on the 5-reel, 20-line game, and it is rather original.
Coins Range:$0.01 - $0.25
Free Spins/Multiplier Better:Yes
Zhanshi will allow you to choose the number of paylines which are present in your game. The lines button will adjust those nicely for you. Meanwhile, you can opt to use the arrow buttons to adjust your bet, too. At its cheapest, the slot will only cost you 1p per line, per spin, whilst its maximum wager can be higher, though not so costly that the vast majority of players cannot afford to place a maximum stake bet.
As mentioned, there is a progressive jackpot included in this slot. Like most RTG developed slots, it is won entirely at random. There is also a secondary jackpot in the game, and this one is non-progressive in nature. It can see players win scoop prizes of up to 10,000 coins in all.
Whilst the game was loaded, you were introduced to the main character in Zhanshi, which is the Chinese warrior. This symbol acts as a wild icon, and when it appears on the reels of the slot, it can replace all other symbols save for scatter icons. It is also the best paying symbol in the game.
Meanwhile, the scatter icon can offer you scattered wins in this game. This symbol is shaped like a temple, and can see you bag scattered wins when they appear anywhere on the reels. They are not the catalyst of the free spins bonus game, though.
Curiously enough, it is the wild icons in Zhanshi which trigger the bonus round. This bonus is a free spin round, and one which offers you a total of up to 25 free spins. Basically, you will net 15, 20 or 25 free spins, depending on which warrior you select. Players will also be able to bag 3x multipliers on all of their winnings in this free spins bonus round. However, if you land scatters on the reels, players can bag up to 10 free games, with a 2x multiplier being applied to all winnings with those free games. There in then, in effect, two free spin bonus rounds incorporated into the design of the Zhanshi video slot. Few players will grumble at that.
RealTime Gaming (RTG) are not exactly noted for their mobile-friendly video slots. However, Zhanshi is actually friendly and compatible with all portable gaming devices running iOS or Android operating systems. This means that your smartphones, tablets, iPads, and iPhones should all be able to run the slot. The mobile game is identical to the online version.
We should make this point once more, since it is rather critical one. Zhanshi has only just been released, and at this moment in time the game is not very common at all. It is even somewhat difficult to find it to play. Even so, the game is likely to become much more accessible as its popularity grows at RTG powered casinos. As for the gameplay itself, there are many solid reasons to try your hand at this progressive jackpot slot, not least the fact that it is progressive, but also that it contains two free spin rounds.
